Lollos and Lettie Birthday Cake Print Design 10 JAN 2014

Andrea and Albert recently(-ish) hosted a Lollos-themed birthday party for little Bella who turned three (and when I say Lollos-themed, I mean that they had the actual Lollos costume there – which Jessica absolutely loved to bits mind you. It certainly helps to be in the entertainment industry, that’s for sure!)

Anyway, Andy tasked Chantelle’s Cupcakery with producing a simple cake print box cake for the party, which of course meant that Chantelle immediately turned to me and tasked me with coming up with the image to be sent off to the printers!

Luckily for me, a decent enough in terms of size Lollos image turned up after some deep Google searching, and with a little Photoshop magic, I introduced Lettie to the image and rounded off the remaining bits and bobs to end up with what was rather a colourful cake print:

Just in case you’re not so familiar with Lollos – it’s a kiddies entertainment franchise relatively popular with small Afrikaans kids at the moment – basically Lollos is a friendly alien creature who is learning all about us through his Afrikaans-singing friends. Kind of like an Afrikaans version of Barney the Dinosaur basically.

Making a Splash with Jessie Jessica 09 SEP 2011

It would appear that Jessica loves the water, as noted by the fact that she starts crying when taken out of the bath, or removed from the shower (yes, she now showers with Chantelle every now and then), or lifted out of the swimming pool.

Wait a minute. Back up there Mr. Narrator. Did you just say pool?

Yup, I said pool. Monday was the official start of Jessica’s career in swimming, with the ultimate goal being of course her role as a top paid swimsuit model who jets around the world and happens to takes her folks along for the ride. But I digress. Anyway, Chantelle and some of the other mommies from the Mommies Club that she now and then attends decided that the time was now right for swimming lessons, and thus it came about that we signed up our little dribble monster at the Blowfish Swimming school in the Strand.

There was a fair bit of scrambling around to get the necessary items like a swimming nappy, baby swimming costume and of course some swimming attire for the big girl accompanying the little girl in the pool, but as per usual Chantelle’s fine administrative skills meant that come Monday the two Lotter girls were ready for some wet and splashy action!

The school is situated in residential Strand and the pool itself is a marvelous temperature controlled indoor pool with all the necessary equipment, layout and what-not required. Apparently the instructor is fabulous and by all accounts, Chantelle, Jessie, Andy and Annabella all enjoyed their outing tremendously! (I’m jealous, because I didn’t get to attend).

Between the two adults, a handful of pictures and short video clips were captured, and seeing as I’m not a particularly greedy man, I thought it prudent to post them up here and thus share with the rest of you lot! :P

A before shot:

And some photos. Note that the only pictures I have are these two and the one a little higher up in this post. Hopefully I’ll get the girls to give me a little bit more material to work with next week! *hint hint* :P

In summary: Looks like they had loads of fun while I was stuck at work. Luckily buggers! ;)

2014-01-20 UPDATE: After numerous people contacting me for a contact number for Blowfish Swimming School, my wife went and dug up the number that we used when we were still utilizing their services a couple of years ago: Anke – 082 900 7614. Hopefully that helps.

Games-Xetra Durbanville Games | My Life 20 MAY 2010

I’ve mentioned before that our pals Andy (Andrea) and Albert Snyman went and opened a gaming store out in Durbanville called Games-Xetra and now thanks to some video magic from the ever creative Albert, here are two video adverts showcasing the new shop.

The store itself is actually pretty great. Nice and large with a good selection of both new and second hand games, not to mention a nifty little gaming nook for you to test out the latest games at, plus a host of other gaming peripherals on offer. Those of you keen on trading in games will also be glad to know they accept trade-in on PS2, Wii and XBOX 360 – for more than a decent price (better than any of their competitors, that’s for sure!)

You can hit their online presence at http://www.games-xetra.com/2010/durbanville/ or visit the shop in person at Shop 4, Die Fakkel Sentrum, 22 Oxford Street, Durbanville. Alternatively, give them a ring on 021 975 7355.

As far as I’m concerned, another gaming store is always a good thing and now that I’ve done my plug, it’s time to sit back and enjoy Albert’s wizardry! :)
