It’s almost leave time, and many of us will be jetting (or driving) off to the coast, the Berg and the bush in the next week or two. Here are a few fun things to do if you’re heading to Durban on your holiday!
Take a walk on the beachfront promenade. It runs from Suncoast Casino in the north to Addington Beach in the south. If you want to avoid the crowds, go in the early morning.
Visit Kingsmead for a classic Durban event: a day of cricket in the sunshine. There’s an international match on December 21st and two domestic matches during the holiday period. Check the Dolphins Cricket website for fixtures and tickets.
Wakaberry is Durban’s wildly popular frozen yoghurt franchise. Choose as many flavours and toppings as you like (it’s self-service) and pay by weight.
Tour the beautiful Durban Botanic Gardens (preferably with your Wakaberry in hand). The garden is home to magnificent trees and numerous themed gardens, eg. the Orchid House and the Sunken Garden.

Pheus & Mor is a well-made, bittersweet, 2-character physics game. You have to help Pheus and his dog Mor work together, pressing buttons, pushing levers, opening hatches and more to get to the doors at the end of each level.
They both lack one skill that the other needs to make up for: Pheus can’t swim, and Mor can’t jump. On the other hand, Pheus can slip through smaller passages, while Mor can break through certain obstacles. So you will have to work together to get by all the obstacles and make it to the end.
As the game progresses you will find out more about the characters and how they got into the strange world they are travelling through now. It’s a world that is beautifully designed, and certain levels are very different from others in terms of design and feel, keeping the game exciting and challenging right up to the end.

Over the past few months I’ve mentioned to my fiance a few times that I needed a good bag to cart my Macbook and some other equipment around in. I haven’t done a big search, but I have kept my eyes open and have only seen one potential bag, but it lacked additional pockets, and I wanted to avoid having chargers in the same area as the Macbook, for obvious reasons.
This morning my door bell went and a courier dropped off a big package. Now, yesterday I received an email from MINI South Africa saying, “A MINI delivery is on the way” so I figured it must be from them, but something so big, let’s see. I unpackaged the parcel and to my excitement I found this:
Absolutely perfect! The cover that flops over the bag is magnetised, which is super useful and a perfect match for Apple gear in my opinion. There are plenty of pockets and areas to store all sorts of things and the bag is of great quality – I’m absolutely over the moon!
Thank you very very much MINI South Africa!
If there was ever a chilled house type track that I was pleased about finding, it’s this one by Chrome Sparks – insanely trippy stuff, enough to spin your mind into a journey. It comes off a new compilation called “AAURAL II,”.
Take a listen to this:
Family Barn is a fun multiplayer game in which you run your own farm. You can get your friends to join in and become your neighbours, so you can help each other out and trade items. You can also play alone, plant seeds, grow crops, and sell them to make a profit.
You save up points by selling crops and completing a number of tasks. You can use these points in the farm store to buy all kinds of seeds. The more experience points you save up, the greater the variety of crops you’ll be able to grow! You can plant these seeds and wait for the plants to grow so that you can harvest them.
In the meanwhile you can also keep animals such as bees, cows and sheep to produce products such as honey, milk and cheese, and wool. You can even purchase a number of seasonal and other special seeds to grow Halloween pumpkins, for instance, or even milk chocolate trees! With every new experience level you work your way up to, new items, crops, animals, and farm decorations will become available!
