Think Dean Geyer and season four of Australian Idol immediately springs to mind. This young ex-South African singer songwriter actor, who has an exceptional singing voice, innocent disposition and charm, has stolen the hearts of many. A natural performer, with baby face good looks and an angelic smile, it is no surprise that he was offered a part in Neighbours, the drama series that made Kylie Minogue and Delta Goodrem famous. This talented and utterly modest entertainer recently spoke to Sabona about his craft, sporting prowess (he has a black belt in karate), immigration experience, tight knit family and plans for the future.

Moving from Roodepoort, Johannesburg to Sydney five years ago when I was 14, I had my head in the clouds with the dream of becoming a pilot. When I heard about the Australian Air League, I thought that getting involved might be an opportunity to help me achieve my dreams.

Every day more than 200 street people used to attend our street church, which was held underneath the bridge next to the campanile in Port Elizabeth. For six years I preached to them, listened to their sad and sorry stories and prayed with them. I personally fed them and clothed them. I visited them at their secret hide-outs on cold winter nights and gave them blankets. I heard them silently singing around little street fires.

That time of the year again…Christmas is just around the corner, and if you haven't given a thought to the meal that you're going to serve on the day then here are some ideas.

Our Christmas this year is full of bright colours – especially red. These dishes are particularly user-friendly – as most of us don't want to spend long hours in the kitchen on this family day.

The human body has been designed to move regularly, but modern technology has unfortunately made it more convenient for people to remain inactive and has turned many of us into couch potatoes. Scientific evidence, especially since the 1970's, has shown that the body responds positively to physical activity. There are many benefits, including for the cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, respiratory and endocrine systems. Some of the health benefits are reduced risks of coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, colon cancer, type 2 diabetes and premature mortality.

“Perfection is one dimensional and is death to all things creative. Perfection only exists in chocolate.”

So says Dawn Marie Price, an amazing United States-based entrepreneur from Vacuum Systems International Inc. About the chocolate, I'm with her 100%. The first bit got me thinking.

My wife and I arrived in Adelaide via Johannesburg and Cape Town in March. We wanted a quality of life of ‘working to live' as opposed to ‘living to work' as things had become in South Africa.

I knew what we were getting ourselves in for by moving to Adelaide as I had been out previously on a recce and was pleasantly surprised by how similar it was to Cape Town.

The pace of life is sedate – I couldn't understand why everyone was walking so slowly until I realised that I was walking too fast! The standard of living, compared to other Australian cities, was exactly what we were looking for.

In between finding work, moving accommodation three times and unpacking our shipping container, we have been amazed at the wide spectrum of things that one is able to do here.

We came to Australia with a ‘it's-what-you-make-of-it' attitude and we certainly are going to be doing our best to achieve just that. You only have one life, live it!
