The nicest thing about Joburg is…
The people. Joburg has the friendliest people.
1. Who are you and where did you grow up?
I’m still trying to figure that out.
I grew up on the outskirts of the East under the careful watch of a strict Portuguese father and a pedantic Afrikaans mother.
2. What do you do?
I’m about to leave the lovely Joburg people and start an adventure in Kuwait.
3. You change your hair a crapload, who would you say is the best hairdresser in JHB?
My hair is mostly changed without my consensus, but it always looks good, so that’s a win-win. And I have Pasquale Hairstylists in Kempton Park or DNA in Bedford Centre to thank for that.
4. If Joburg had a hair colour what would it be?
After Thursdays sunset, I would have to say that Joburg is not restricted to one colour, but it would be mainly red, for passion, obviously.
5. Do you have a favourite restaurant in the city? What’s your best dish?
I’m so lame when it comes to food, restaurants and my memory. So even if it was a good restaurant, I most probably wouldn’t remember it’s name. I do love Pata Pata in Maboneng Precinct though, but that’s obviously because of its delicious soups and African decor (and, by decor, I mean the actual African tin tea pots and mugs).
