A day in the life of.. a typical Capetonian

Hello World! I am excited to Break Out my first international collab with Lauren from Diary of a Spanglish girl, where we will be exploring the differences between Cape Town , Alicante, Spain and London, UK. Dont forget to check out her blog here.

Sunday 11th November 2018

Sunday’s are usually sleep in days so my day only started at about 11:00 am. Not only is it Sunday funday but in Cape Town we can not start our Sunday morning rituals without a *Koe’sister & a good cup of coffee.

* A Koe’sister is a Cape Malay  spicy dumpling with a cake-like texture, finished off with a sprinkling of coconut.*

Sunday Drives & Koesisters always go together *Lagoon Beach, Milnerton*

After two koe’sisters, a cup of coffee and another  hour of lazing in bed catching up on vlogs we realise how late we are for our Sunday lunch with the in-laws.  Today we were only an hour late, all things considered we are not doing half bad.

One of the best places in Cape Town to get authentic koesisters *Bo-Kaap*

Lunch is done at 3:00 pm and after all the catching up before we head home we decide to take a Sunday drive.  Sunday drives are a must when the weather is beautiful in Cape Town, everyone ends up at the beach, a market or a wine estate and it usually includes dessert or ice cream.

The weather is 27°C /80.6 °F  & we are technically in the last month of spring but these past few days have given us a preview of how hot our summer is going to be.

We arrive at the beach a few minutes before sunset which is around 7:24 pm and spend about 30 minutes there before heading home to start our Sunday eve routine. Our routine includes getting lunches ready for the next day, deciding what to wear, doing a mask, editing pics for the blog and again catching up on vlogs.


And that’s a wrap folks. Its not often that I get to spend the entire day just taking care of my body, sleeping as late as I want, spending hours catching up with people I haven’t seen in months or just enjoying the beauty of Cape Town. Life is busy so when I get a chance to enjoy the simple things in life, you know I am going to grab it with both hands. I live for these lazy summer days. As always thank you for reading xx
