medieval mystery dinner with friends

 

Medieval Mystery Dinner - Ayanda Tini, Tamsyn Lee Brown, Vania Cloete, Emma King

Last night, the 5 Flies Restaurant in Cape Town was transformed into a medieval castle as another Mystery Dinner evening got under way. I joined GoodHope FM‘s Ayanda Tini, Tamsyn-Lee Brown, Vania Cloete along with SAHealthBlog‘s Emma King, Francois King, writer for FoodblogCT Kayli Vee Levitan and Jess Gouws as the 3 course dinner commenced. Set in Medieval England, we were served a delicious choice of Roast rib-eye steak with chestnut-potato puree and Pan-fried line fish. Characters, good food, fun, laughter and not to mention detective skills added to the evening as we had to use clues provided as the evening progress to figure out who at our table did it! Be a part of the next mystery evening, call Inspector Keyser on 0849938040 for more information.

muhammad ali joins louis vuitton’s core values campaign

Louis Vuitton (Core Values) Muhammad Ali by Annie Leibovitz

Travel is a fundamental and defining value of Louis Vuitton’s more than 150-year heritage. The Core Values campaign was launched in 2007 as a long-term restatement of Louis Vuitton‘s legacy as the pioneer of the Art of Travel. Travel is an emotional experience, a process of self- discovery. We all have the potential to accomplish our own personal journeys. Naturally, the Core Values campaign features personalities of truly global stature ranging in professions and backgrounds. Above and beyond their celebrity status, they are individuals who are widely recognized to have lived full and interesting lives – people who have accomplished personal journeys of their own. The latest personality to feature in Louis Vuitton’s Core Values advertising campaign is among the most outstanding athletes the world has ever seen – indeed, he was crowned “Sportsman of the Century” by Sports Illustrated in 1999. Louis Vuitton is proud to present “The Greatest™”: Muhammad Ali.

For Louis Vuitton, Muhammad Ali was photographed by Annie Leibovitz at his home in Arizona, watching one of his grandson who, wearing a pair of boxing gloves, stands proudly as if waiting to enter the ring. An athlete, artist, humanitarian, and outspoken political figure of unwavering integrity, Ali changed the world around him and remains a figure of inspiration to millions.
