Although my international tournament participantion has dropped to 0 since leaving Malaysia earlier this year, I have played against more teams and new people than I could have imagined.
This weekend passed all that playing culminated in the biggest tournament on the SA Ultimate Calendar: the SA Nationals.

At the start of the month I attended my first South African tournament, the Mother City Invitational.
Unbeknownst to me at the time of entry, it was, in fact, a bare-bones tournament on purpose, so I’ll reserve a post comparing SEA Ultimate tournaments to South Africa’s until after nationals next month.
I took a few pics at the tournament though, and it has gained some mileage…
What’s one of the first things an Ultimate player does when they get to a new destination?

“I’m not a runner”, I keep telling myself, often just before I end up running something and, in today’s case, it was the 10km in the

Table Mountain is not a high mountain. At around 1,085m above sea-level it pales in comparison to the mighty Mt. Kinabalu, which stands tall at 4,095m.
I’ve climbed Mt. Kinabalu 6 times, twice of which were in one day. That doesn’t mean Table Mountain can’t hurt you. Because she can. And, if you disrespect her, she will.
On Sunday, on the way back from Ultimate practice in Stellenbosch, I saw a fire raging on the mountain slopes above Franschhoek. I thought nothing of it and was sure the authorities would have it under control soon enough.
Little did I know.
After an ever-increasing intense last few days in Kota Kinabalu, 13 January rolled around all too quickly and, following sad goodbyes, I boarded the flight back to Cape Town.
With my car tagged and bagged, I have a few experiences to share about selling your car.
Not sure if this is specific to Sabah or whether it happens everywhere in Malaysia, but here are the people who will call to buy, or not, the car you’re selling.
I recently sold my Perodua Myvi here in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.
To, perhaps, make somebody else’s life easier, here’s how I did it…
