Early this morning Craig and myself was sitting in the RLABS office and working (doing reports). During our discussion he reminded me that it was April’s Fools Day. Being the geek that I am I had saw an opportunity on how I could capitalize on this day and blog about it.
That is when we decided that I should announce that I am getting married soon as most of my followers know that I am single (on twitter and facebook). So this the status update I put up on Facebook and Twitter:
Needless to say that it was not long until someone commented on this post to congratulate me. And of course there were lots of questions asked. Some wanted to know who the lucky girl is. Other people were sceptical and mentioned that it was Aprils Fools Day and commented about it on facebook. However there was a plan of action in place. I simply deleted their comments and then thereafter sent them an inbox message informing them what I was doing. Luckily none of them was offended.
On Twitter I soon received @ messages from people congratulating me from all over the world. I soon sent a DM (Direct message) to all of them telling them what I am doing. Twitter is the Social Media application that I am best known on and some of my followers were not happy that I caught them out in this way lol. It is awesome to see how many people are actually interested in my life. I have nothing but love for you guys.
Just to say that the next time I do make the announcement, it will be for real. Problem now is that I have to just find her still. I am trusting God that He will show me who it is.
NB. THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR YOUR CONTRIBUTION TO THIS BLOG POST.LOVE YOU ALL

I am attending a business breakfast this morning that was organized by two dynamic young men, Kyle Jonck and Jason Martin. The conference is hosted Granger Bat Hotel in the beautiful Waterfront, Cape Town.
Kyle and Jason did the welcoming and up introduced the MC for the day Reagen Allen. Reagen is a young dynamic business man and i really look up to him. The first guest speaker up was Dave Duarte, a online marketing curator and well known on the Social Media scene. He shared so many interesting facts regarding marketing and social media.
Looking forward to what is still on store. I love this conference.
*NB I AM DOING LIVE BLOGGING FROM THE EVENT.

Yesterday while we were working in the RLABS we had the privilege of being given a short blogging workshop by none other than Madam Geek ,Rene Parker. She showed us a couple of things on wordpress that we, as she puts it, well renown bloggers ,should have known. She actually put us to shame lol.
But it was a fun session and she taught us a trick or two. So she put Craig and myself to shame I must admit. It was however a pleasure to see her getting excited about blogging. I suggested that we have a little blogging off friendly competition and just to encourage each other and teach each other new things about blogging.
I am so looking forward to this interaction and learning. That is why I love my work/job. Always an opportunity to learn something new on a daily basis.

As RLABS we have started to do Social Media consultancy for companies, NGO’s and other businesses. This is so that we can be a self sustainable and continue all our projects within RLABS without having to worry about finances to do so.
One of our clients for whom we are doing a Social Media Consultancy for is a production company by the name Ollywood productions. They are releasing a local movie called: I now Pronounce You Black and White. It is being branded as South Africa’s biggest romantic comedy.
Here is a read up on the movie:
I now pronounce you Black and White
Love and Marriage, it’s the iconic idea of joy and true happiness…unless you’re Simon and Jackie!
Simon Dawson (Up & Coming Tyrel Meyer) and his black girlfriend, Jackie Msolisi (Astara Mwakalumbwa) announce their engagement to each other, but Simon’s racist, white parents are more than furious.
Felix Dawson (Ian Roberts), a hardcore Afrikaner, and his pretentious, Jewish wife Sheila (Bo Petersen), are determined not to let their son “marry the help”, while Jackie’s parents, Pauline and Clarence Msolisi (Sylvia Mdunyelwa & Kwezi Kobus) are equally shocked by their daughter’s decision to marry “a Whitey”. Pauline vows to stop the wedding at any cost.
I Now Pronounce You Black and White is a ridiculously hilarious and fun film, full of “interesting” characters that will make your family look, well lets just say “normal”. As true love tries to conquer all, against all odds, this movie in true South African class will not leave you wanting.
I Now Pronounce You Black and White is South Africa’s “first” romantic comedy directed by Oliver Rodger that is set to launch in the middle of this month at the Cape Winelands Film Festival (CWFF).
Viewers can expect to see the first screening of I Now Pronounce You Black and White at their local Nu Metro cinema from 14th of May 2010.
See you at the movies!
