The Sweet Service Award goes to The Dairy Den in Sea Point, a unique outlet selling the best ice creams as well as doughnuts. I try to restrict myself to one ice cream a week, but had not tried the doughnuts, when I met owner Tassia for the first time, introducing myself and congratulating her on how well run the outlet is, compared to a shaky start, which I had communicated to her telephonically. She insisted that I try a doughnut on the house, a delicious chocolate coated one with hundreds and thousands.

The Sour Service Award goes to TELKOM, for not cancelling one of my telephone lines, despite going to see them at the Sea Point Customer Service Department in January, and requesting the cancellation. Of course TELKOM has carried on charging me for the service. I was told that it takes 30 days for the cancellation to be effective!
