Fun times....

I have had such a cool week so far, besides the weather acting up and not deciding on what exactly it wants to do with itself, everything else has been good.

I took up the opportunity this weekend to check out the horse yards up in Shongweni, horses are beautiful creatures and I am definitely going to start riding again once I am settled in Johannesburg, it should keep me busy and out of trouble.

On Monday evening I was treated to an awesome dinner at The Olive and Oil restaurant in the Umhlanga village, the dinner was amazing except for the calamari starter! My mate Dave ordered it and I laughed at the portion! Don’t you just hate it when you have fails like that at a restaurant. I really really wanted to have a hubbly after dinner, it is my most favorite thing to do, to chill with a drink and a hub! So we ventured to Cuba Lounge with a couple of other mates and got one… Pretty cool and chilled.

The plans for New York are coming along nicely, with me departing on the 30th of November and arriving back in South Africa on the 13th of December just in time for my birthday on the 16th December. I am certainly in for a good time.

I am super stoked about this week, it is my last week in the office here in Umhlanga, it marks a new beginning for me. After this week I will be spending two weeks getting all my things sorted for my move to JHB.

Ah yes! Before I forget again! I have entered the Face of Markham competition, I just need to be kept in the top 10 of the comp. Then after the 16th of November it is up to the judges to choose their winner. It is worth a try, I am not exactly sure what they are looking for.

But please cast your vote to keep me in the top 10.

Thanx to those who have already voted :)

Dirty Toilet Sex Music Party - Origin Sat 2nd Oct


I thought I would share some pics which were sent to me today, they were taken at the “Dirty Toilet Sex Music” party held at club Origin a while ago. Myself and a few mates attended the party and so much of fun was had. In the picture with the three guys it is Dave, Tyron Mason and myself.

These pics were taken in an actual toilet booth they had set up at the entrance of the club, and no, it was not a real flushing toilet, but it did look real!

Aaaah, and Friday has finally arrived! TGIF!

Aaaah, and Friday has finally arrived! TGIF!

This week has been such a long week actually, with my time in Durban coming to an end and with me literally counting down the days until I head off to The Big Apple, you could imagine how time must be dragging on for me. Anyhow, not much longer now and I will be climbing the Empire state building and roaming the clubs and streets of New York, looking so forward to checking out the nightlife, I mean come on! It is me… J

This weekend is going to be a particularly chilled weekend, however it is my housemates Sam’s 21st birthday! Unfortunately I will not be making the festivities and will be spending the weekend up in the Hills again playing tennis, smoking hubbly, lounging by the pool and will most likely hit the gym and/ or head out for a run…

Today also marks the last day I have to train with my gym partner Sean, he heads off to PE and back to Botswana this weekend! It has been awesome training with him as I have been pushing myself harder and the advice he has given has gone a long way. I will most likely be keeping it up and we will get back in the gym together in the new year in Johannesburg.

Seen here is a pic taken from behind the scenes from the shoot I did two weekends ago with Ryan Stewart, more to follow :)

I hope everyone has a great weekend! I know there are plenty of parties happening in Durban this weekend, so play it safe guys ;-)

The Crouching Tiger...

I was asked a couple of days back to pose for Zee to turn me into a Cat. I thought cool, let’s do it J I am always up for doing interesting, fun and different things.

So yesterday after gym and skipping the steam room I dashed home to change and meet my mate Dave and then headed to Zee’s place at the Oyster Quays with a bottle of wine in hand. We arrived at the beautiful apartment block which overlooks the ocean, in addition it was also a beautiful warm evening.

First we sat down and munched some Nando’s, I was quite ravenous after and intense workout. Then poured a glass of wine and Zee started preparing all her goodies to tackle the task which lay ahead of her… I laughed when she said that at least I was not hairy… Ummmm, yaa… LoL.

She started with the face, applying a base color which made me look like I just had a very serious sunburn! Haha! It had not started to take shape as yet, however when she started working in texture I could see how I was slowly being transformed into a pussy. After about 45 minutes to an hour we had the face done and it looked really good! I was stunned actually…

We took a break and I attempted to drink some more wine, and then we started on the next part, well, the rest of the body actually…

With Dave and Marco playing with Zee’s little boy who was just adorable and had every one go maternal on me! Zee proceeded to finish off the rest of my body. Once again applying a base which made me look really tanned and then working in some texture and detail. Slowly a cat started to appear.
About 2 to 2.5 hours later Zee had taken me from a human being, I like to think that I am one and transformed me into a cat! Pretty damn cool! Her inspiration was taken from the play, Catz and she worked from one of the characters in the play, not by copying the character but just using it as a guideline.

Well done Zee!

She will be doing me up for Halloween at the end of the month! Need some ideas!

Zogra or Zee can be contacted at zogracox@hotmail.com for any work, she does theatrical, stage, fashion and all other make up! She made Marco look like a 60 year old man!

Definitely do not want to be running into this goat…

Robert Boardman, 63, of Port Angeles, died on Saturday after he was attacked by the goat while hiking on the subalpine Switchback Trail in the park. The trail is popular with residents of nearby Port Angeles, which is about 140km west of Seattle.

Park rangers later found the goat, observed blood on it and shot the animal.

Rangers have been tracking the goat and others for the past four years because they have followed people or approached hikers without backing down, said park spokesperson Barb Maynes.

"It has shown aggressive behaviour, however, nothing led us to believe it was appropriate to take the next level of removal," she said.

"This is a highly unusual. There's no record of anything similar in this park. It's a tragedy. We are taking it extremely seriously and doing our best to learn as much as we can."

Park officials have posted signs at trailheads warning hikers to be watchful of all goats and to stay at least 30m from the animals. Hikers are also warned not to urinate on or near the trail, because goats are attracted to the salt.

Boardman was hiking with his wife, Susan Chadd, and their friend, Pat Willits, and had stopped for lunch at an overlook when the goat began acting aggressively toward them, the Peninsula Daily News reported.

Boardman urged the others to go ahead while he tried to get rid of the goat, according to the paper. The two heard him yell and ran back to help.

Hikers who came upon the group radioed for help. But it took nearly an hour before rescuers could reach Boardman because the goat stood over him as he lay motionless on the ground, according to the Seattle Times.

"The mountain goat was terribly aggressive," Jessica Baccus, who was hiking with her family, told the Times. "It wouldn't move. It stared us down."

She and her husband, Bill Baccus, a park scientist, tried to lure the goat away by pelting the animal with rocks, shouting at it and using a silver reflective blanket to distract it.

It finally moved away, and Jessica Baccus tried to give Boardman cardiopulmonary resuscitation until a local doctor who came upon the group took over, she told the Times.

A US Coast Guard helicopter airlifted him out of the park.

Boardman, a locally-known musician and diabetes educator, was an avid hiker who also worked for years as a nurse for the Makah and Lower Elwha Klallam tribes, according to the Peninsula Daily News.

What’s up with the weather??

I am putting it down to global warming, the weather has been crazy! One moment the sun is shining and the next we have winds howling, rain and hail, hail in places you would least expect it!
Anyway, I took advantage of the sunny weather on Sunday before filming and took a walk along the beach. Stopped over at a little café on the way down to the beach for hotdogs, and got a free beer with the order because it was taking long, I did not complain though and in my mind it was not taking long at all, I just figured they wanted to give us a beer. What a beautiful day it was! Have not walked that far in a while and it just reminded me that I need to do some cardio at the gym!

After the beach I managed to sneak in a nap as I was filming my last scene later on during the early evening which we got out the way quite quickly. The filming had been postponed quite a few times, and luckily so, or else we would have been filming in stormy weather!

I am not one that likes being in the rain, actually I hate any form of fine water touching my skin. I like to be warm and dry when it is raining. Don’t get me wrong, I do love rain, the smell, the sound and everything about it, but just not on me…

Gym last night went really well, we trained legs and I have also been hitting the steam room which really does refresh one, especially after a cold shower when you get out. The new training routine is going super well and I have noticed some really good results.

I hope everyone has had an awesome Monday and that you all are going to have a great Tuesday! 

What a week...!

What a week is has been...!

Last weekend started off with me attending the POWA fashion show at Club Sasha, Durban with the likes of Rosie Motene and Terrence Pillay and a couple of other familiar faces. POWA is for People opposing Woman Abuse and the fashion show was held to create some awareness around this issue in our country. Personally I think it is a fantastic organization and as most of you know I feel very strongly not only against woman abuse, but any abuse.

Ryan Stewart managed to call me up just as I was heading off to the show on Friday night for a shoot the next Saturday afternoon, that’s when my plans for any form of a big night went out the window. My Saturday morning started off at The Hair on the Edge Salon in prep for a shoot later that afternoon which was booked the night before. I shot with Ryan Stewart of R.S.Images and sported the latest Corrupt Underwear which was launched earlier this month. Check out www.corrupt.co.za as well as R.S.Images fan site on facebook and their website www.rsimages.co.za.

The shoot went really well. The location was a small one way side street with a wall covered in graffiti. It must have been quite a site for the block of flats opposite us, We had a few onlookers pass us by and a small crowd gather at the end of the street. All in all it was a great shoot as it always is when working with Ryan Stewart.

Myself and Ryan were booked to be judges with another 4 judges at the annual DarkChild Fashion show where young designers and models take to the ramp to showcase their latest designs. With two categories namely costume and fashion wear the models battled it out on the ramp. 6 designers were placed 1st, 2nd and 3rd in each category walking away with some amazing cash prizes. The event is organized by Trish Lithuli every year who always works her magic! It was a huge success and I was very honored to be a part of the panel.

This week that has past I have been giving it my all at the gym, really been pushing myself and I can definitely see and feel improvement. My goal is to get to 85kg, I am on 80kg at the moment, it has taken me quite some time to get there! But am there… J I am still pushing hard and with my new training buddy I have picked up a lot of things. Sadly he leaves next weekend and then I am on my own again, but I will try and maintain.

This weekend should be pretty chilled, but still busy… lol, yes that is possible. Will be filming tomorrow evening again which I am looking quite forward to. I am also looking forward to seeing what they have done with the scenes filmed already… Not sure when I will get to see that J

I hope everyone has an awesome weeken!

Play it safe!
