Yesterday, I hit up the Veuve Clicquot Masters, (that’s Cape Town’s most exclusive polo event, if you didn’t know…) at Val de Vie in Franschoek.
As I got to schmingle in the VIP lounge (thanks Vivid Luxury!), I got to swill litres of free Veuve Clicquot and take in a delish gourmet lunch.
Aside from the big polo game…
…there was also a game of pentanque, which is kinda like a fancy version of bowls. Myself and Dax got roped into a team to play against Jeannie D, her boyf and two other folk whose names I didn’t catch. (Sorry man, was
v dronk by then concentrating hard on learning the rules which I picked up on too late. Apparently you’re supposed to toss your ball so that it lands closest to the little yellow marker balletjie and I spent all my time trying to hit it, snooker-style. Oops!
Either way, the menfolk on our side were too busy being hypnotised by the hotness that is Jeannie, particularly when she yelled shizz like ‘If there’s one thing I know, it’s balls!’
Other peeps on the scene included actress Jenna Dover.
Val de Vie magazine covergirl Lieschen Botes was also there…
Lieschen was one of the many peeps who gave me advice on my leg dramz… yip, I’d managed to burn the shizz out of myself yet again, this time with my curling tong. Check it out:
Lieschen reckons I mustn’t bother with tissue oil and use Bio-Oil only. This is the advice she got from a plastic surgeon for a huuuge cut she once got on her forehead. I’m taking the fact that her face is now flawless as evidence that Bio-Oil is the way to go.
After drinking my fair share (and then some) of yummy Veuve, I decided to say my good byes… but not before nabbing a shot with Ryk Neethling.
I sidled up to him with those new miniature Smarties… the classy gal’s ice breaker… and discovered, much to my horror, that HE DOESN’T LIKE SWEETS!
Guess we aren’t going to have that torrid affair after all…
Thanks Vivid Luxury – this was a great day out! Now please stop tagging piccies of me on Facebook where my legs look fat! 😉
