WIN Wakaberry Vouchers

My Facebook page page reached 4k likes last week. The support all of you have been giving me is amazing and it is greatly appreciated. As I was thinking of a competition to run on this blog to say ‘thank you’ – my friends at Wakaberry contacted me letting me know about their new app which launched today. I love Wakaberry FROYO and I know that most of you guys do too. I managed to organise Wakaberry vouchers for you to WIN. Below I have included a list of things that you guys need to do in order for your entries to be considered.

The winners will be announced on Friday via my Facebook page

Below I have included a press release which has everything that you all need to know about the new awesome #WakaApp


Wakaberry launches WakaApp – the first frozen yoghurt app of its kind in South Africa.

The app is free to download and is available globally for Apple and Android as well as feature phones (via the mobi site Wakafans who download the app in June 2015 and complete their profiles, will receive a digital R30 froyo voucher to redeem at any participating Wakaberry store.  From there they will be able to collect virtual stamps for each purchase and after their 19th stamp they will be entitled to a R30 voucher – essentially a free bowl, a perfect reward for a true Wakafan.

The app will launch with added features like a store list and customer feedback option as well as being fully integrated with social media.  Future developments include a daily flavours section as well as the opportunity to purchase and send virtual gift vouchers (for that perfect last minute gift idea).

“Our Wakafans have helped us to grow into the biggest froyo brand in the country.  We are looking forward to saying thank you and engaging with our tech savvy fans in a whole new way,” says Luise Peters, Brand Manager. “We are also very proud of our previous froyo innovations and we are always looking for ways to continue to grow the froyo culture.  This app is the natural next step in that growth,” she adds.

The WakaApp is now available for download. Customers can also SMS “Wakaberry” to 33872 to be sent the download link. The current paper reward system will continue to be accepted in stores and will be discontinued over time.

Alcohol Free Weekend #1

I am writing this post, it’s a Saturday but you are reading it on a Monday. I’m in Durban North. Visiting an old friend of mine, spending some time with him and his family. They are happy to see me and I’m happy to see them, too. Durban North is really quite, nothing like Ntuzuma, a township where my home is. When I told my mom that I’m going to spend my weekend at my friends place, she was so happy. I was not sure if she believed me when I said I want to down my drinking rate but now I knew she did. Missed my post last week where I take a stand against my alcohol problem? Click HERE.

I woke up today and went for my first jog, guys, I was so excited when I woke up and got dressed in my MRP Sport gym gear prepping for my very first jog, ever. It was like the first day at school, I must say it wasn’t easy but I sure am glad I did it. It felt amazing, at first there was a weird feeling when the cars were passing me and me passing people going to work, I wanted to stop and pretend I’m just walking, I thought I looked funny, but then I remembered I am doing this for me.

I have always wanted to join gym or do some sort of exercise, since I still think gym is a bit too much for me, I might as well jog for now. And another thing, at work we are signed for a Cross Fit exercise at The Gateway Mall every Thursday morning, I have been trying to ignore that but I think it’s time I give it a try. So you guys might be seeing me post about it sometime next week or just on my social media on Friday.

So after my first jog I sat and watched TV with my friends’ sister, once again it was great. This is something new to me; I really am not used to this. The old I would probably be drunk at this time, bank balance slowly dropping, do I even care? I’d worry about that shit on Monday. This thing of watching TV is something I’d do during the week after work while having dinner with my family. Today I’m doing it on a Saturday and I’m enjoying it. I then remembered I have to share my day with you guys, it’s not just any other day, it’s a special Saturday because I woke up sober today, something that hasn’t happened in a very long time.

Later on Saturday Sandy Bigara, a friend I met online in 2013 lives in Durban North and I told her I would like to see her. She was down for it!

I was excited, Sandy and I have been good friends online and she’s been a contributor for my other blog since 2014. We immediately clicked when I interviewed her for Durban Zone Magazine. She’s a performer, director and a stage Queen at heart. She’s moving to Sydney in a weeks’ time so I couldn’t miss this last opportunity to meet her. She came and took me out for lunch; we chilled at Java Café, Durban North and chatted about life, family, problems and our dreams. It was a great outing, something I really needed as watching TV was becoming too much for me.

It’s a Sunday, time to go home, I am excited to see my mom and siblings – but I will miss it here. I wake up and my friend requests that I help him in the garden; did he just ask me to help him do the garden? I’m the laziest person, ever. At home I don’t do this but I remembered that I’m a visitor here and this would be a great way to get the morning going. We worked in the garden and did the yard from 8:30am until 10am (now that was exhausting). After that we got ready to go, I was heading home and my friend had a date with his girlfriend. I was excited to see my mom, brothers and sisters, it’s only been a few days but it felt like weeks.

My first alcohol free weekend wasn’t bad as I had imagined and I’m very proud of myself.
