Your Weekly Guide - Edition603 19 April 2017 - View Online


One thing we ought to pride ourselves on as humans is innovation. Take Nia Vardalos, for example. She was a struggling actress who decided to write and star in her own film, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, which was released on this day in 2002. There were no film roles for her, so she thought, “Forget about it, I’ll make my own.”

It’s in our blood – whenever opportunities are scarce, we create our own. Whether you’re entering the job market or want a promotion, a good place to start is at Vega School. Their excellent short courses in Brand and Marketing Management, Digital Brand Strategy, Web Design or Copywriting will ensure that your CV will shine above the rest.


Speaking of impressing, celebrate Mother’s Day at Kievits Kroon Country Estate. Alternatively, you could treat your mom at any time during the month with either Mom’s Getaway, or the indulgent Mother’s Month Spa Treat. Sounds divine, doesn’t it?

On the other hand, there’s always a special occasion coming up. And SA Florist has fantastic gifts for every affair, from birthdays to anniversaries. Think flower arrangements, gift boxes and more – your trusted local florist has it all. Click here and you’ll see.

Then we have The Fire & Feast Butcher’s Festival at the Ticketpro Dome - a first of its kind. A feast for the senses over three days, which includes celebrity chefs, championship cook-offs and a variety exhibitors. If you’re a meat lover, then you’re in for a treat. Icing on the cake? Three lucky readers stand a chance to WIN double tickets.

And now for our Top 5 recommendations for this week:

1. This Saturday, enjoy a stellar musical lineup while supporting a good cause at the Rumours Rocks For Saints.

2. Alternatively, there’s the Princess Charlene Race Day, which is also raising money for charity. Don’t miss it this Saturday.

3. Then there’s always great entertainment and tons of things to do at The Rand Show this weekend.

4. Time travel to the 70s with Leo Sayer live in concert at Montecasino this weekend.

5. Get started on your autumn shopping spree at Kamers in Houghton Estate, starting next Wednesday until Sunday.
