I don’t know about you folks but I’m planning my holiday already. I’ve paid my deposit, planned my pre- and post- New Year’s activities and this time around (unlike last year) I’m going to forget about the “worldly problems” that haunt us because… guess what, 2013 Leana… yes you get frustrated… but it all works out… and you’re stronger for it.
I sought out to find THE summer MUST-HAVE items for 2014/2015 and I made my own personal short list of things I really, really want.
I’ve never fallen victim to poor/corny pickup lines – not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing. Nevertheless, had a corny line been addressed to me, I’d probably laugh uncontrollably in the dude’s face.

Every morning I wake up, switch the kettle on and scroll down my Instagram and Twitter timelines waiting for the water to boil. Normally the feeds are filled puppies and my selfies of my sexy Instapeeps,
The other day on the radio, while I was driving home, they were talking about things that only happen in South Africa. This inspired me to come up with a few of my own “Unique to South Africa” things that I think you might like.

In every other English speaking country Carte Blanche means “free to do as you please”. In South Africa, it means “tomorrow is Monday”.
Ya means Yes
Even though you don’t watch TV, you know that 7de Laan is not the name of a street..
If you’re under 30, all you know is “Apartheid was bad” but you haven’t lived it…. EVERYBODY JUST KNOWS IT’S BAD.
In any other country, the name “Leon Schuster” could be confused with some fancy dog breed… over here it’s an old white guy who manages to fool people with his kak disguises.

“Bra” is better known for being the shortened version of “Bother” and not for being the shortened version of the lady helper, the “Brassiere”
Brandy and Coke is not the name of a woman and a drug. In fact, you call it “Brannas and coke” (Voms in hand)
When you hear “Mr. Price” you don’t think that it could be a math teacher or a partner of a firm… NO… you think “Oooh! A place where I can get my shop awn!”
You know that Pap and Wors go together like Bacon and Eggs.
Despite what it might sound like, I’m very happy that I’m here. I might not be the typical Afrikaner girl (and have been complimented by an English lad once who said “You’re Afrikaans? You’re so eloquent … where’s your accent?”) but I love where I am and who I am. I wouldn’t have be the me that I am if I didn’t live here … so… THANK YOU SOUTH AFRICA!
