Braai- Part and parcel of the South African household

June 3, 2010

 

South Africans are proud about our traditions and way of life. We have great weather which makes us more outdoor people and we love to braai.

 Braai is much more than just a South African barbeque. Preparing food on an open fire is not unique to South Africa but the whole braai experience is part and parcel of the South African household. 

Andre Morgenthal  from WOSA said: “We don’t only braai on weekends or “special occasions”.  I know people who braai over lunch time, with an umbrella when the weather is bad and even early in the morning.  Because we can, the fire is welcoming and we like it.  This is intrinsically part of a South African experience and should be mandatory on visitors’ itineraries”

Will you entertain foreign guests in the next Football crazy month? If so, what are you going to braai?

Fooling the professor – Joke

March 11, 2010

Two University seniors had a week of exams coming up. However, they decided to party instead. So, when they went to the test, they decided to tell the professor that their car had broken down the night before due to a very flat tyre and they needed a bit more time to study.

The professor told them that they could have another day to study. That evening, both of the boys crammed all night until they were sure that they knew just about everything.

Arriving to class the next morning, each boy was told to go to separate classrooms to take the exam. Each shrugged and went to two different parts of the building. As each sat down, they read the first question.

“For 5 points, explain the contents of an atom.”

At this point, they both thought that this was going to be a piece of cake, and answered the question with ease.

Then, the test continued… “For 95 points, tell me which tyre it was.”
