My Pretoria-Jozi Trip

Published August 16, 2012 by aquahlekkergarla

This scarf am wearing is from USA the same like the one Soulja boy was wearing in that kiss me through the phone video lol,it is one of my treasured items in my closet.These sunglasses are char coal black,and i never keep sun glasses when i have one someone just have to ask for them and i give them away just like that.I had them for 2 weeks and now they are owned by someone else..:( anyway on the brighter side they say blessed is the hand that gives than that receiving.That upper pic is the snacks i travel with all the time,an ice tea + energade sweets +BBQ biltong and my journey is mwaaah….i never eat much ever since i saw a woman with running stomach the other time i took a long ride by bus and the bus did not have a toilet inside they left her in the bush so i never want to be the victim.At the corner there its the flats where my friend lives in Pretoria i visited him.That hand is carry my Gautrain gold card,i enjoyed the fastest train ride ever between Pretoria and Johannesburg,so am never taking anything between Pretoria and Johannesburg except for GAUTRAIN,is clean,fast and comfortable and affordable though most people feels its expensive…The chocolate mint wimpy ice cream is what i usually have when i touch down and then we have my million dollar teen smile.

That me looking like a teenager.Next is the Mandela bridge in Johannesburg.The hair band i made it myself,i had this big summer coiled hat and the coils we coming apart so i made the band with it and people love it they always ask where i bought it lol.The pic at the right upper corner is  me in the comfy Gautrain seat from Pretoria to Johannesburg.The wall  is painted with street art,love it.You can see the yellow skinnies i love so much.The welcome board is at the Gautrain station in Rosebank, yah that’s all here.

The first pic from the top is me at the gate of my home in Soweto,South Africa.It was cold and i just had to have the coffee when traveling up and down around the two cities.You can see my cousin there with a pop of pink top,she is one of my favorite cousin and we both love coffee more so that am scared its gonna get us sick lol..well that’s a rap up of my vacation with family moments,new experiences,coffe with my cousin and all.I hope next time i will be having a cam.

The Green long Skirt..

Published July 23, 2012 by aquahlekkergarla

You wont believe how i got to buy this skirt….i saw it a  weekend before and i was travelling to my dad’s hometown and i didnt have enough to buy it and i told my self i had to have that skirt.When i came back home i find that my mother is on trip and i have to go do new passports for my little sisters,when we get there to the passports they tell me one of their mother or father are the ones who should make the passports for them.We were so pissed and bored untill my 17 years old sister suggested we go window shopping,when we got there we found very nice stuff she liked and i liked the skirt and we used the passport money even today my parents dont know we used the money,we told them we kept it till they are free to go do the passports.I cant wait for me to get paid so that i replace the money or else we are dead meat.Anyway i HEART green and i so HEART this skirt….#bliss..

I just couldnt stop looking at it lol..i love it so much…:)enjoy your evening..love yall..mwaaaaaaah..

Travelling time;fun time

Published July 12, 2012 by aquahlekkergarla

I love travelling like if i knew what i was doing years back choosing a course would have choosen the travel and tourism course,ooh well i know why i didnt.. its because everyone was opting for it and i picked something that people said was difficult and not fun,SOFTWARE ENGINEERING,yeah am that kind of person who dont like to follow the path people do u know..a weirdo lol.Anyway i still get to travell though its not enough,so tomorow am travelling to South Africa to see my family.I will be going to Pretoria first then Johannesburg,travelling comes with packing which is so not fun,because you have to literally select a mobile wardrobe,what you will be wearing from head to toe and still looking fabulous.I always wish i could just take my whole wardrobe but impossible because my travelling bag is kind of not that huge.

Things i must travel with are; first lots of money for shopping lol,a magazine to keep me busy,ipod for jamming;i tell you the distance would just varnish just like that with music,Little bit of snack;when i travell i never really eat ever since my cousin had a problem of running stomach on the way and had to get off at a place he didnt know for a toilet and something to take for the stomach ache so ever since then i take ice tea,energade,energade sweets,biltong and chewing gums to eat and thats it,then hand lotion;you can actuallly get dry on the way and look crappy so that is needed,hand sanitizer;jams every hwere people lol,wet wipes;so refreshing,tissues just to name a few.

Then must pack;a maxi skirt/dress,sandals,flat pumps,heels,colorful skinnies,jumper,shorts,bikinis,belt,white shirt,vests,sunglasses,a hat,jewelleries from neck pieces,wrist pieces and stuff and everything else will folow and usua lly when i travel my room is always left as a mess 🙂

 

Looks like we on for the road…#dancing around..i dont know if i will be able to post in the coming days but if i dont manage know that i love yall and am probably collecting some goodies for you all and hit me on tweeter my tweeps @zEfaQUAh06 …:) am going to miss you all:(#hugs

XOXOXO

Anyway lets talk color now…COLOR…COLOR…color…somehow i happen to be crazy with anything colourful,jewellery,clothes,bedding,shoes its just too crazy and here is one of my color combination outfit,green *mmmh hhh*,yellow,orange,blue,yellow and others lol…..

                     Me and the guys from another choir

                                                                                                        Me and the boys

Been weeks wanting to publish this post but work just had to be massive,like my boss took a leave of 3 weeks to India and i was left alone in the office you can imagine the irritating phone rings,i finally finished compiling this post anyway and am stund for days.

FreakAzoid is a dance crew from Gaborone, Botswana, that interpretes music in a very entertaining manner. It consists of 4 lovely,sweet,talented ,hardworking,swaggalicious home breed guys ie;Jones Pierre,Salim L,Linda Blink and Kyar Miel.When they dance you will think they are not Africans because they are too talented,they have taken dancing to another level,very professional and they dont only dance hip hop ,they have incorporate other types of dances that they learned on their journey as they got more experienced and mingled with the revolutionary dance world,a bit of cramping,dance hall,and etc.They have a very intense electrifying display of art, straight up interpretation of the beauty in music, sound and instrumentals with lots of  story telling through dance.I go a bit personal with them because they were my juniors at varsity and we were in a dance club together and they ended up showing interested in my clothing label*Which i will get in to a lil bit later in one of my future posts* and they represented it,wore it to their perfomances and stuff…looking at where these guys come from iam just too excited for them because they started small nd never gave up because they are big dreamers,every opportunity that presented itself they never allowed it to pass them through and iam their biggest fan yey!!*Shaking pompoms*.They have achived a lot besides always winning the battles with other dance crews on the street,they won in a local talent show called ‘My African Dream’ and they took part in the ‘BATTLE OF THE STARS’ competition organised by my African Dream crew,they were featured in a local music video and a local poet’s video and recently have taken the SHAKEDOWN *an up coming tv show that will be on the local television station*auditions by storm and the streets has it that they are currently featured in an on going shooting of a music video of a local artist *Talk about busy bees chasing that paper*.They have built their reputation  in the Botswana entertainment scene because of their high standard entertaining perfomances and working a lot with high rated local celebrities.IAM PROUD of them…#clapHands

All the quard members;from left its;Linda Blink (The reserved one,he allows his dancing to speak for him),Kyar Miel(He is our Chris Brown,He dances,behaves,walks,dress like him),Jonnes Pierre(This one we love his almost chinese eyes,even when he is not on his charming tip he is charming,we can say a born charmer,i think his wife will be lucky in the future and yep he dances like crazy),Salim L(OOOh Salim Salim,you know the leading guy in stomp the yard 1,the one who ends up doing Meagan Good,*cant believe i fogot his name,am crazy about that dude,his name just flew from my mind#sad* yah him,this Salim dude when he dances he always reminds me of that guy,even a friend of mine said it then i figured i wasnt imagining things lol);I love these guys jo…but i dont think they know…
