The Cape Town International Convention Centre What a spectacle celebrities make of themselves sometimes, falling over one another to be in a camera shot. Never one to be camera-shy, David Beckham, sporting his new “mullet” is multi-tasking his way around South Africa: shaking hands, crossing his arms and spearheading the 2018 bid for England to host the FIFA World Cup. Yes, England wants a piece of it too.

The stage at the CTICC where the Final Draw will take place Recently I attended the media briefing for the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ Final Draw, which is happening this Friday, December 4, 2009, at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC). It never crossed my mind that any part of the World Cup would not be world class, but being in the room where the Final Draw will take place gave me goose bumps and a proud feeling for being part of such a major event for Cape Town and the world.

Learning the diski dance with Cape Town Tourism Cape Town locals and tourists alike were out in their thousands on Sunday, November 29, to enjoy the city’s annual festive lights switch-on.

The interior of Vanilla October and November 2009 brought several sensational newcomers to the world of luxury living in Cape Town. The Cape Quarter has become my new favourite haunt for décor shopping, simply browsing and grazing from one restaurant to the other.
On Thursday, November 26, I went on the media tour of the FIFA Final Draw venue at the Cape Town International Convention Centre along with Cape Town Tourism. It was really impressive to see the co-ordination and effort that has gone into this event. Much like Cape Town Tourism, which has the tagline “Ready to welcome the world”, the Final Draw venue is already set and “ready if this [the draw] had to happen tomorrow”.
