Fazielah’s top three weekday picks in Cape Town
Fazielah Williams has lived in and loved her Mother City since birth. Having lived all over the Peninsula during her childhood, she now calls the picturesque City Bowl home and likes nothing more than watching the sun set over Table Bay from the window of her apartment.
A lover of the arts and proud Cape Town fanatic, Fazielah began her writing career by spending many hours as a child conjuring fantastical stories that featured independent heroines from faraway lands who saved the Prince instead. This Capetonian princess has enjoyed stints as a magical arts PRO and TV publicist before finding her calling as a travel writer.
When not waxing lyrical about the Fairest Cape’s most loved attractions and activities and embarking on unexpected adventures, Fazielah can usually be found taking in a show at one of the City’s fabulous theatres.
It’s former President Nelson Mandela’s 94th birthday this Wednesday. Honour him by donating 67 minutes of your time to a worthy cause in and around the Mother City.
Whether you’re knitting up a storm to provide blankets for the needy at Mandela Rhodes Place and Spa in the city centre, reading to the elderly and ill at a hospice or donating blood, you too can make a difference.

Hot off a run at the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown, this comical but insightful production starring James Cunningham at the Kalk Bay Theatre should not be missed!
You’ll be in stitches as Cunningham grapples with impending fatherhood and a life-changing event in a satirical manner.
