Howdie Surgers!!

It was my 17th Birthday this past Wednesday and boy was it a day to remember. Not that I got showered with gifts or anything but I did get wonderful birthday wishes and went out to an amazing restaurant called 21 Grill on Hanover which is really what i want to talk about.

This restaurant i located in the “warm heart of Africa”, Malawi at the Protea Hoyel in Blantyre.

When you first enter, you are given a warm welcome by the waiters and manager of the restaurant. The grill lights are dimmed to provide a home- like atmosphere. I felt like I was in a castle, chandeliers hung beautifully and the chair designs were fit for a king! I was shocked when we received hot towels to wipe our hands with!! With warm clean hands we made our orders and waited anxiously, but not for long for our food to arrive, and boy was it worth the wait!

The first meal to arrive was a gourmet burger:

250g beef patty/

Chicken Schnitzel,

onion marmalade,

double cheese,

mayonnaise and

spicy fried potato battons

The next dish to arrive was Morrocan Chicken:

Half  Chicken basted and slow roasted to perfection

Served with naan bread and humus

Then finally my meal came the delicious 21 spare ribs

bourbon and sesame seed basted spare ribs

After an amazing main course yummy desert was next! I was the only one who ordered and my choice was the chocolate marquise:

Terrine of milky swiss chocolate mousse with a hint of cofee.


I have got to say that that was the icing to my amazingly delicious cake! I loved every thing about the 21 grill and I cannot wait to go back. If you Surgers are ever in the area, give it a try! You will not be disappointed 😉



long time no blog. I know it’s been a while, but im back with a tale of adventure!! A little while ago I left my new home, Malawi to make a visit to my old home Zimbabwe. Sounds simple enough right? BUT IT WAS’NT, and my family and I made a bunch of pit stops before we finally arrived.


Firstly we took an hour long flight to Lilongwe (the other capital city of malawi), just for a little while though then proceeded to South Africa and waited for two hours at the Amazing OR Tambo air port where we met a great African hero

NELSON MANDELA!! ( in bead statue form by the way)

A very short 4 hours later we had gotten on the plane and arrived safely in Botwswana, the third country on our list and we spent an amazing 2 days shopping, exploring and visiting relatives and staying in the wonderful home of my aunt and uncle who had recently moved there

and lets not forget the delicious food. I have always wanted to try TIRAMISU and although it’s not a native Tswana food, it was still available and really good



After an amazing 2 days it was time to depart. we gt off to a rocky start with our plane having difficulties resulting in a delayed flight we arrived home to Zimbabw.. my home



We spent the next 2 weeks in Zimbabwe, staying with my grandmother, seeing  more relatives and treing to get my drivers lisence, and although i dd’nt get it my trip was still worth while especially when I visited my my old school and my closest of  friends


The trip back home was less tiresome and although i was extremely glad to get back to my new home i kind of wished i had stayed a little longer.
