The best cupcakes and sushi in Cape Town

January 6, 2012

Dear Max

Happy new year dude (and to all the readers of this blog – I hope it’s a good one).

We are back from Cape Town and allow me to speak for both of us when I say we had a brilliant time, summarised below:

Your best food experience: sushi at Minato and biscuits at Charley’s Bakery
My best food experience: same as above, plus high tea and breakfast at The One & Only

Eating an inside-out roll at Minato

Your best experience in general: visiting the aquarium and running from tank to tank yelling “more, more, more”. You loved it. You pointed out the colours, and noted that the biggest fish in the tank was the “dada feeesh”
My best experience in general: climbing Lion’s Head and not breaking a leg owing to tripping on a rock

Your best new words on holiday: aquaryan (aquarium), sea, crane, litchi, Apetown
My best new expressions on holiday: “OMG this view is amazing”, and “Make that a double”

Your favourite toy: Any car
My favourite toy: iPhone to take Instagram pics of the scenery

Your favourite unexpected activity: Sticking dinosaur stickers on my New Yorker
My favourite unexpected activity: Not working every day

The thing we never did: Go to the beach

The thing we did a lot of: Run on the promenade and in Camps Bay

The thing that saved my bacon in times of your niggliness: Jolly Jammer biscuits

Our mom-son highlight: Going on a boat ride along the marina

The moment that tested my patience: A day in Franschhoek when you wanted the fake fruit in the restaurant to be real. From then on, you were niggly, at times inconsolable, and very clingy

The times I breathed a sigh of relief: During our flights, when you were awesome, relaxed and charming

Thank you for a brilliant holiday Max. Looking forward to many more,

    Looks like an awesome holiday and you never went to the beach? Well I guess in Apetown (love that!) it’s quite ok. And got to love Jolly Jammers.
