Hie Surgers!

Just want to talk about something tht has reaally gotten to my heart

People sell puppies but it’s the way they sell them here in Malawi that bothers me.

Here puppies are not only sold in pet stores but also on the side of any busy road. Occasionally I see them, with two adorable puppies of  all breeds clutched in their hands but i always wonder: Where do these adorable creatures go if no one buys them? And where do the sellers get the puppies anyways? Selling them on the side of a busy street puts them in grave danger of being run over and seriously injured or worse!

I know we can’t save every single puppy but we could atleast try.

Save a puppy and take them to your nearest SPCA or better yet, make it part of the family:)

Heya Surgers!

I was listening to the bbc news on the radio the other day and they just so happened to be talking about a passion of mine (film) so i had to turn up the volume. As i continued to listen I heard about a competion that the bbc is holding Internationally. It’s a playwrites competition where aspiring playwrites create their own plays and send them to the bbc. From what they said on the radio the prize includes:

2000 pounds

A trip to London

And a chance to listen to your play on the radio.

I would enter myself but i’m too young ( you must be over 18)

Hiya Surgers!! Sorry for the delay in posting, i’ve officially started my lessons at my new school!!

Well it’s not like proper school yet, more like preparation for when i do in September which is actually extremly different from when i usually start school in January but i still consider it school. I’m going to Saint Andrews International School in Malawi and from what iv’e experienced so far its an awesome school.

At first I was really nervous. You know bein the “new kid” and the fact that this was the first Malawian school i had ever been to but both the teachers and the students were EXTREMELY nice. The school has a different kind of learning system to what i’m used to. It’s very diverse and everyone gets a chance to be apart of the learnin experience

In the past two days that iv’e been going there, not only is it fun in the classroom, but i’ve noticed people are just as active on the sports field, just like my school in Zimbabwe.

Having fun so far and i feel like i never left my school in Zimbabwe. CROSSING MY FINGERS HOPING IT GETS EVEN BETTER 🙂

I’ll answer any questions you may have about startn at a new school


Hie Surgers!! This past Sunday i went on a culinary adventure to an Indian styled restaurant called the Bombay and boy, did i enjoy myself

The resturant, which is located in the city of Blantyre, Malawi, opposite the Protea hotel and opens an 6pm. Once you enter, you are treated to beautiful music and an ever smiling staff. The variety of different pieces of astounding art makes the place homely and provides a relaxing atmosphere. IT’S AS COMFORTABLE AS HOME!!  Once you are seated you are immediately given a little something to snack on whilst you wait to order an no i do’nt mean the usual bread rolls. You’re treated to roasted pita bread with a variety of spicy sauces on the side. I personally prefer the sweet chilli sauce, but the green chilli pepper sauce and avocado spice sauce are just as great.

Because it was our first time there we asked the manager (who by the way was extra nice) what he thought were the best dishes on the menu. oh ya and do’nt let me forget about the drinks. Most of us had the usual soft drink but one of us ordered a traditional tea called MASALA tea and it’s served with milk but sugar is optional. Once the food arrived our mouths began to water as the pleasant aroma filled the air. We had:

Butter Chiken- chicken with curry and cream

Mixed Grill- red sausages and a variety of red and yellow chicken

Curried Mutton- Mutton in curried gravy

Chipati- a special kind of flat roasted bread covered with garlic and butter (My fav! ;))

Basmati rice

The food was sooo good an we could barely finish it!! 

We were about to leave when the manager came back and offered us free ice cream!! Who can refuse free ice cream!! As soon as we finished, we happily left with our tummy’s full and smiling with content. WE WILL MOST DEFINETLY BE BACK and if your ever in Malawi be sure to visit.

dont worry i took a picture of the delicious meal 🙂Image

I’ve lived in Africa most of my life and i am an African, but when i moved to Malawi from Zimbabwe it was the first time i’d ever seen a wild animal as a pet. I dont mean a bird. The first people i met when i arrived owned a lodge and they had a pet impala. She was still a baby and they were nursing her back to health at their lodge and although she had a lot of space to frolic I still found it amazing that they owned an actual impala!!! I know that some people may think that its not extraordinay for an African to have a wild animal living in your backyard but it actually is!!! I have personally never owned a wild animal and i do’nt know anyone (besides them of course) who has owned 1. Dont worry I did’nt leave the lodge without a picture.
