5 people I have met from Twitter….

Standard

My Twitter addiction started in August 2011 and since then has increased dramatically. I used to love Facebook but now I rarely go on to it. At first Twitter seemed daunting but in no time I found my way and totally loved it.

Since 2011 I have Tweeted 23577 Tweets and I have 780 followers. I recall my first couple of months and thinking will I ever get a 100 followers.I love Twitter as you can follow and interact with so many people all over the world even if it has a 140 character limit. My blogging journey also started due to Twitter and has grown. I have made some really awesome Twitter friends and I cant wait to meet them though I have also met several of them.

My list of 5 Tweeters include :

# Deon Govender a popular DJ from Eastcoast Radio. Deon was super friendly ad always follows back and interacts with his followers.He has some pretty cool mixes on Spreaker that you can download. So check him out on Twitter @djdeong

# Jenny Morris a much loved SA Celebrity chef also known as The Giggling Gourmet. I had the awesome pleasure of meeting the amazing soul last year at The Good Food and Wine Show. Jenny was so lovely, funny and has such an amazing personality. She even signed a copy of her new cookbook and posed for pictures. My friends were all green eyed monsters about how I knew Jenny and how she was so lovely to me. Aunty Jen as I know call her on Twitter has awesome tweets and always replies to her followers. Find her @JennyMorrisChef she will defo keep you laughing.

#Alvin Quah from Masterchef Austrailia was another Tweeter I met. Alvin was voted the most popular masterchef contestant in SA. Alvin is a bundle of laughs and has great stage personality.He was very friendly to the crowds and allowed a photo session. Check him out on @alvinquah

Heinken Rocks Experience Cape Town 2012

Standard

People say I have a lucky streak , I say in order to win you have to enter. My most memorable win to date has definately got to be winning an all expense paid trip to Cape Town for this amazing event that totally rocked.The main sponsors of this prize were Heinken, The Sunday TIMES, Kulula and Grandwest Casino.I felt like a true celebrity with the cameras constantly clicking pictures of me. This is truely of those moments you will treasure forever

This event was held at the Grandwest Entertainment centre where we were treated like true VIP guests with goodie boxes in our rooms.We had a very tight time schedule and the best Hosts ever thank you  Andile and Louise.

This amazing experience took place over 2 days four  flights later with less than 3hours of sleep left me on a total high. The concert was an amazing fusion of rock , classical with a South African twist. The cream of the crop in terms of SA local talent were part of this production. My highlight was meeting MiCasa and Chiano Sky, amazing performances from Zolani ( Freshly Ground), MiCasa and Chiano Sky left me breathless. Meeting the stars of the production at the Heinken after party was so great they were all so humble and down to earth and didnt mind posing for pics .

For me this was the first time I have experienced such a concert on this large scale. It made me so proud that we have such amazing talent in South Africa and yes we need to  show the world this homegrown talent. I was so taken by the concert that 2 days later I purchased a Chiano Sky and a second copy of MiCasa which is now a platinum CD!

To the organisers of this amazing event well done on the excellent fusion of music. I wait for Heinken Symphonic Rocks 2013 :)I only wish that this production would come to Durban as well.
