Kloofzicht

Kloofzicht is a five star lodge and spa and it’s situated among the Zwartkops Mountains  and is a forty five minute drive from Sandton.  The lodge is surrounded by fly fishing dams and the Zwartkops Mountains. 

On arrival one immediately feels a sense of stillness and calm.  The nature reserve upon which Kloofzicht is built is home to kudu, impala, zebra, springbok etc.  It was such a treat to watch the Giraffe on the hill while having your dinner.  

The surroundings are just so peaceful and beautiful.  It also seemed to be the perfect place to focus and concentrate also.  I was amazed that I managed to get quite a bit of work done while I was there.

The spa was my favourite part about Kloofzicht.  The massage at the spa was just fabulous.  I was  relaxed and  felt totally rejuvenated afterwards.   

The staff at the spa and lodge were all very friendly and professional.

If you’re exhausted, stressed and tired of your usual routine, then Kloofzicht is the place for you!  Just take a deep breath, relax and enjoy:)

Back in the UK

I’m back in the UK, making more memories.  Been in Bournemouth for a week and I love Bournemouth Square, all my favourite stores are just around the corner as well as  Bournemouth Beach.   I love watching random people perform at Bournemouth Square. 

I have uploaded some pics of my UK trip…

London definitely has an energy that no other city has.  So many cultures, accents and so many people…its amazing:) The best part about being in the UK during this time of the year is the festive atmosphere.   Christmas lights on the streets and lots of Christmas sales.  You can just feel it, Xmas is around  the corner; )

When I’m in London I always go to Laduree and Harrods.  I’m always amazed at how massive Harrods is and I absolutely the macaroons at Laduree.  I also love the curries at Madhus in Harrods; )


Friday nights at Picadilly. ….

TUMERIC

Some of the benefits of turmeric are:

1)  Tumeric for the flu: Research shows that turmeric may help reduce the severity of bacterial and viral infections.

2)  Tumeric contains Curcumin:  Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric. It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant.  Chronic inflammation is known to be a contributor to many common Western diseases. Curcumin may  inhibit many molecules known to play major roles in inflammation. Apparently curcumin is just as  effective as some of the anti-inflammatory drugs with no side – effects!

I prefer to have a curcumin capsule with peppercorns and some yoghurt as this enhances the absorption of curcumin.

3)  Turmeric is a natural antiseptic and antibacterial agent.  I remember my grandmother applying tumeric to any cuts or bruises when we were kids. 

4)  Many ayurvedic practitioners recommend a bit of tumeric with warm milk an hour before bed if you find it difficult to fall asleep.  Milk contains serotonin and melatonin which in combination with the nutrients from turmeric relieves stress and induces sleep. 

5)  Tumeric is also one of the essential spices for a curry. 

The SA Constitution

​South Africa prior to 1994

For many years South Africa was in conflict with both the international community and international law.  Apartheid, premised on race discrimination and the denial of human rights, was contrary both to the law of the UN Charter and to the norms of human rights non-discrimination and self-determination generated by the post-World War II order. Although South Africa’s foreign policy during this period was highly legalistic, it was the old law of state sovereignty and absolute respect for domestic jurisdiction that guided and shaped it.  South Africa became a pariah state within the international community a delinquent state in the context of the ‘new’ international law of human rights.  In 1994, during the first democratic elections, South Africa had an opportunity to join the international arena. 

The 1996 Constitution

The arrival of the new constitution brought with it a new beginning for South Africa.  The constitution has become the cornerstone of democracy in South Africa.  The use of foreign law by South African courts was authorised by the South African constitution.  Before the interim Constitution came into operation, the negotiation and signature of treaties was a prerogative act of the executive in which the legislature and the courts played no part.  Since the establishment of the new constitutional order courts have shown a great willingness to be guided by international human rights law.  Decisions of the European Commission and Court of Human Rights have provided the greatest assistance, but courts have on occasion also considered the views of the United Nations Human Rights Committee and United Nations reports on human rights matters.

Piza e vino

I really enjoy a pizza at piza e vino and I like the fact that the  base of the pizza is not too thick and ‘doughy’.  I’ve also found that piza e vino uses good quality ingredients and they have gluten free options which is awesome.  I generally love the vibe at the Rosebank and Melrose Arch branches. 

Walnut Grove

This is my favourite place at the mall.  After shopping, you can relax at Walnut Grove and almost forget that you’re in such a busy mall.
All their meals are very tasty but I love the coconut and Ferrero cake.
Their spiced chai and fresh juices are also very popular as well as their rainbow cake.

Medical Law- Negligence/malpractice

Medical Law- Negligence/malpractice
Protecting man, his life, personality, health and dignity is one of the fundamental objects of the law.  Medical science calls on the law to determine the permissable limits within which one may operate.  A failure to act with the necessary care may sometimes lead to civil liability either because of a breach of contract or on the grounds of delict.
