Teen Haven…Come Grow With Me.

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 😉


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

ImageTexting. We all do it and sometimes it’s better to text instead of talking face to face. But I know i’m not alone when I say texts can backfire MASSIVELY! Have you Surgers ever wanted to send a text to a friend about someone who really made you angry but because your thinking about that person so much you accidently send it to them :o?! I heard a story a while ago about a guy who went away on vacation. he really missed his girlfriend but instead of texting “i wish you were here” he messed up and texted “i wish you were HER” OOPS.

Texting is’nt bad its actually super useful, but let’s all duffle, uh oh I mean double check 🙂
