The Sweet Service Award goes to Top Stitch Tailors in the Piazza St John, for its amazing service in creating a skirt for me from two left over pieces of material, and adding an elasticised waist for it, within an hour of bringing it to them, and at the very low cost of R80! Continue reading →
On Saturday morning I attended the launch of the innovative new Nuri Sushi Factory Breakfast Menu in Sea Point, invited by Brewz Krew MD Thabied Harris. The menu rolled out at the Sea Point branch yesterday.
The Sweet Service Award goes to Isabella Page of The Hair Company in Sea Point, my hairdresser of almost three years. I met Isabella when she was referred to me by Anita Farr, when I complimented her on her hairstyle. Isabella was instrumental in shaping my hair look and style during my transformation, an important part of looking and feeling good. She has recently opened The Hair Company with Linnea Campabasso, operating from the 3rd floor on the Sea Point Medical Centre. Isabella invited me to visit her new salon for a cut and blow, which I timed to be just before the launch party of Cowboys & Cooks Steakhouse & Bar, but was in a scheduled load shedding time slot. There was no power cut Continue reading →
On 2 January of this year I adopted a stream near the Camps Bay Tidal Pool, having seen it clogged up with plastic and other rubbish left by picnickers on the infamous New Year’s Day. Since then I visit the stream every day, to clean it up, removing all the rubbish from it. A week ago Straatwerk workers assisted me in removing all the water weeds that had grown in the stream, and the rubbish that was trapped underneath the plants, returning the stream into its beautiful former self, an asset for Camps Bay and other Capetonians.

The Sweet Service Award goes to Sorbet Camps Bay, the Branch to which I switched earlier this week, having been with the Sea Point Mall Branch for the past two years. I now live in Camps Bay, but out of habit I kept going back to the Sea Pont Branch. Walking past the Camps Bay Branch, which is at the back of The Promenade Centre, and to which I can walk, I gave it a try earlier this week, and returned two days later, loving the peacefulness and professionalism of the staff in doing a leg wax and mini pedicure. I was informed that I had R250 in points, which was deducted from my total due, leaving a small amount to pay. They do a birthday 50% discount too, already diarised for next month. Lauren did the waxing, with extreme thoroughness, Continue reading →
A lunch at Coco Safar, followed by a dinner three days later, were two chalk and cheese experiences, the former excellent and the latter hugely disappointing, especially as it was a birthday dinner treat for a special friend! I had last been to Coco Safar for breakfast early this year, after it opened in Sea Point, having moved from Cavendish Square. Continue reading →
The Sweet Service Award goes to Waterfront Leathers, and its sales assistant Suraya Isaacs, for her excellent service in selling me a Cellini suitcase at a reasonable price. She was knowledgeable about the brand, found me a suitcase in a blue which matches a smaller suitcase I had already bought in the UK, and proactively offered to change the code on the combination lock from the standard supplier one. This was a vast difference to the poor service I received at Frasers, where the sales assistant did not want to listen to my requirements in a suitcase.
The Sweet Service Award goes to Discovery Vitality, for keeping its promises on offering its physically active members cash back on their purchases of healthy foods at Woolworths and Pick ‘n Pay, on their shopping at Clicks, and at Sportman’s Warehouse. In addition, they have weekly rewards for fitness achievements, none of which I had used until I visited The Point Mall branch earlier this week, when I received a surprise reward of a car wash at Body Wash discounted to R15 instead of the cost of R80. Continue reading →
The Sweet Service Award goes to Melissa’s, and its Area Manager Mariska Slabbert, who has been extremely efficient and service-orientated in assisting me with the supply of fresh figs, arranging to leave some for me at their Paarl branch, when I recently drove through the town. She also assisted in sourcing stickers which the Kloof Street branch used to sell, but which had been sent to their Stellenbosch branch. She had them sent back, for me to collect, sending me a message that they had arrived. Continue reading →
The Sweet Service Award goes to Sorbet at the Point Mall in Sea Point belatedly. I was sent a text message, offering me a discount for their beauty salon services during my birthday month of December, which I accepted gratefully. I received efficient service from three staff members, and one of them even offered to return my Bootleggers coffee cup to the nearby coffee shop.
