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!  (more…)

The Sweet Service Award goes to KAMERS, and their Marketing partner Magdel Kemp, who very kindly organised a refund of my entrance fee when I enquired why I no longer am on their mailing list, when I attended their pop up store at Jan van Riebeek School recently. It emerged that they had a very out of date email address for me on their system.  (more…)

The Sweet Service Award goes to Big Concerts, for their smooth organisation of the Ed Sheeran concert at the Cape Town Stadium last night as well as on Wednesday evening. From booking the add-on show for last night, collecting the tickets early this year at Computicket in Camps Bay, finding parking easily on High Level Road in Green Point, minimal security checks to get into the (more…)

The Sweet Service Award goes to Woolworths in the Waterfront, and its Supervisor Tasleem Murat in the Ladies shoes/underwear/sleepwear department, hardly a space in which I expected a male. I first found him when looking for assistance to find a pair of boots in my size, and Tasleem helped me find them. Then I needed pantyhose, and again he found the right size and c9lour for me. I saw a pair of slippers, the only left in the store, and he offered it to me at half price as it had a Pom Pom  (more…)

The Sweet Service Award goes to Sorbet in Camps Bay, and its owner Debbie, for her service recovery. When I went for a Pedi, I did not notice until I got home that the staff member assigned to me had used the wrong colour on my toes, despite me asking for the nail polish Sorbet Ice is Nice colour to match that of my finger nails. Debbie offered for the nail colour to be redone the following day, an offer I accepted gratefully. This is the second Sweet Service Award for this Sorbet branch. (more…)

The Sweet Service Award goes to Audi Cape Town, and its Service Manager Hennie Kriel and colleague Luvo, for continuously providing 11/10 service. I am unable to reset my low tyre pressure message in the car’s complicated on-board computer, and can just drive in and one of the two gentlemen will reset it for me. Similarly, when I lost my FM stations, and they reset it to FM. The workshop truly operates to its 11/10 goal in the customer service it offers.

The Sweet Service Award goes to Haus & Laib Deli and its co-owner Cheryl Hauslaib, in organising gammon for us on Christmas Eve when they themselves had sold out of it. She called her previous employer Hartlief in Garden’s Centre, and arranged for us to get some slices kept for us until we arrived there. She also has Carrot Salad freshly made for me, when they are out of stock.  (more…)

The Sweet Service Award goes to the City of Cape Town, whose cleaners are far more visibly active in Camps Bay now, in cleaning out the green bins, and sweeping the pavements, to remove the continuous dirt in my suburb. The strong South-Easter wind, vendors, and inconsiderate beach goers leave litter on the lawns, the beach, and on the pavements.  (more…)

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 (more…)

The Sweet Service Award goes to  the City of Cape Town, and its Trainee Cashier Jarred Knipe, for the speedy service in renewing the licence for my car at the Civic Centre. I came armed with a copy of my ID and once again the proof of my residence, which I had organised especially elsewhere prior to my visit to the Motor Vehicle Registration Officer. One is allocated a number on arrival, after enquiring  why one is visiting. My number was about eleven numbers after the counters servicing clients. Many clients did not respond to the numbers. Before my number came up, a roving admin staff member asked me what I had come for and directed me to the Cash Office immediately. Jarred is a relatively new staff member, still on training! He completed the paperwork and payment within five minutes, it having taken me a total of ten minutes to renew the registration of the car, something that has taken an hour at least in the past! I had to pinch myself that I was not dreaming. And to add to the service delight, Service Manager Hennie Kriel, replaced the licence disc for me when I popped in at Audi Cape Town for assistance with something completely unrelated!  (more…)
