...Capturing the Heart and Soul of the Bay

News

Van die Redaksie

Wie van ons mammas en vrouens het nog nie gehoor: “Ek is vandag so lus vir my ma se kos, souskluitjies, frikkadelle in druiwe blare, tamatiebredie of of of…..”

Niks voer jou so vinnig terug en laat jou na jou jongdae verlang, soos die bekende reuke en smake van jou ma se kos nie.

Daar is net iets aan ‘n ma se kos. Dit hoef nie “grand” kos te wees nie, net die gewone alledaagse kos met liefde voorgesit.

So land ek na ‘n paar maande wat ek my dogter laas gesien het in Dubai.
Skaars was ons by die huis of sy vra: “Sal ma nie asseblief vir my ‘n ‘peanut’ en stroop broodjie maak, soos net ma kan maak nie?”
Wil jy glo, van alles soek sy ‘n ‘peanut’ en stroop broodjie !
Kan die versoek ook dalk ‘n bedekte skimp wees dat sy na haar ma se bord gekookte kos daar in die verte verlang?
Wat ookal, so spesiaal was dit, dat ek net daar die kosmaak vir die res van my kuier oorgeneem het. Moet sê, nie sy of Jaco het my eers probeer keer of teëgestribbel nie.

Almal is deesdae so gesondheisbewus, en dit is reg so, of dit is kitskos, ons kinders weet nie altyd van ouma se lekker bederf kos nie. Vleis, rys, aartappels, stowe boontjies en soet patats/pampoen om enkele van die lekkertes te noem.

Maar …so tussen al die gesonde kos, word daar darem ook gereeld plek gemaak vir ‘n bord lekker boerekos.
Ons mag mos maar, want…ma se kos is nie bloot net kos nie, dis ‘n voorreg en vertel ‘n storie van haar liefde vir haar gesin.

Get Loud In Colour And Give Hope!

“It’s time to get loud in colour and give Hope by planning for CANSA Shavathon 2018,” urges the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA).

CANSA’s annual Shavathon has become the darling of South Africa’s fundraising events in support of a worthy cause. It will be staged for the 15th consecutive time in Langeberg Mall, Hartenbos Seefront and Mosselbaai Mall on 24 February 2018 and at workplaces from 26 February to 2 March 2018. Not only has the shaving or spraying of heads become symbolic gestures in support of cancer patients and cancer survivors, it continues to ease the strain experienced by patients who lose their hair while undergoing treatment. Solidarity for cancer patients and survivors can be shown by adults giving R50 and children, under the age of 12 years, giving R25.

“All funds raised help CANSA to continue delivering our care and support programmes. We also provide educational materials with information on how to lower the cancer risk and help provide access to early detection of cancer. Our CANSA Care Centres offer support in many forms to cancer patients, their families and anyone who wants to know more about the disease,” concludes Scholtz.
www.cansa.org.za or www.shavathon.org.za, contact the nearest CANSA Care Centre, call CANSA toll-free 0800 22 66 22 or email: info@cansa.org.za.

CANSA offers multi-lingual support on Whatsapp: 0721979305 for English and Afrikaans and 0718673530 for Xhosa, Zulu, Sotho and Siswati.
