So paar maande gelede, om een van die talle braaivleisvure, het ‘n paar manne oormotorfietse begin gesels. Dit was interessant om te sien hoeveel motorfietsentoesiaste daar was onder die Afrikaanse gemeenskap in Brisbane. Ek is elke keer verstom dat vreemdelinge so gou gemaklik gesels as die geselskap in die rigting van motorfietse gaan. Daar is niks beter vir enige mens se gees as die skoon lug, die groen valleie en gemaklike samesyn van fietsryvriende nie; net daar besluit ons toe op die Boere Bikers of soos ons wederhelftes ons noem, die BBBs (Bles en Boepens Bende).

Everyone who “knows” me, knows I always speak (or write) from the heart. Even though I am very lighthearted and known for being a bit of a clown and not taking life too seriously, when I am serious, I say what I say with conviction. Anyone who knows me also knows that I'm not very quick to get angry and I believe I take criticism very well. Well, constructive criticism anyway.

This year the Zimfest phenomenon reaches the shores of five continents and will be celebrated in dozens of countries around the world. One of the charity festival's newest host cities is Perth, which celebrated its first event in 2008. Excitement is currently building for the next event, which is to be held on September 5, 2009. The stage is set for a breathtaking and exponential ascent of the concept of Zimfest, as Western Australians turn to gather Zimbabwean scatterlings comes around once again; all in the name of Zimbabwean charities.

Who would have thought that South African sport would be where it is now? After the election things were looking bleak with quotas, administration blunders, confusion, but amazingly it's pulled itself up and again. The emergence of genuine international superstars of all race colours is highly pleasing. The South African 7-a-side rugby team is excelling leading the international standing by quite a margin and going into the last two tournaments in London and Edinburgh should pull off a first. There are definitely a couple of future superstars in the making for the Boks in this very talented squad (and none of them play in the Super 14 ). Any doubters just remember awesome Jonah Lomu and dynamic Christian Cullen came out of the 7-a-side system. And of course beating the New Zealanders on a regular basis now is very ‘lekker', especially after all the smashing we had to endure when the South African Rugby Board did not take the competition too seriously.

Even as I write this I realise that to the uninformed (that is, those not from the state of Victoria) the word ‘footie' could mean a small ball (like in Afrikaans words for small things “seuntjie”)

The first of what will become an annual Sabona Business Network (SBN) Awards dinner was held on May 21 in Brisbane, Queensland. Thanks to our friends Shandell and Rialet of Entelect Solutions the décor was spectacular. The theme was African (naturally) and the venue just looked spectacular. Sabona flew special guests in from as far as Perth (Douglas Horak, our Perth SBN coordinator) and Melbourne (our guest speaker, Pete Niemandt, author of Things I've learnt about Immigrating to Another Planet) and quite a few from Sydney. Most of our coordinators had never met each other, so this was a perfect opportunity to get to know one other and share some ideas.

Lots of Sharks and Bulls but no Storm or Lion and Cheetah frenzy The Super 14 is already taking its familiar team position format as far as the South African teams are concerned with the two big guns from Durban and Pretoria stamping their authority and class right from the start. The question on all Bulls tragics out there is whether they can they travel well this year, they have to negotiate the Hurricanes ( very tough ), Highlanders ( do-able ), Crusaders (can be done as they are showing cracks at last, the mighty Crusaders ), Waratahs ( extra tough ), Bumbies (hard in Canberra ).

One of South Africa’s boxing champions has made Queensland his home and is giving back to the boxing industry. Holder of the record for the most number of punches landed by one fighter in a championship fight, 555 punches during a fight against Ivan Robinson in 1996, Philip Holiday moved to Australia in 2003.

To think that as I write this article it is almost a year to date since I left South Africa, is truly astonishing. I don’t know how but the memories seem both distant and recent at the same time. Looking back at 2008, I see it as a personal success. If I were to have a New Years Resolution, it would be to take my momentum and run with it - to make hay while the sun shines, and what better time in a young man’s life for the figurative sun to shine than his last year of High School? A year ago, however, things were very different. Some would even say that I had to blow the clouds away and make the sun shine for myself.

November
We went to see Johnny Clegg at the Great Concert Hall where he played a good selection of songs justifying the nearly R1000 we paid to go and watch. The audience went into a frenzy when Johnny broke into a bit of Zulu dancing during his hit song Impi leaving us all in goose bumps. One can never ever forget that African beat and rhythm, it is in your soul. “It’s a cruel, crazy wonderful world.”
