#TBT: Delicious Doings
Aaah, last week Saturday. Saturday was one of the longest days of my life related to an event, but definitely one of the most fun too. I was at the DStv Delicious International Food & Music Festival, presented by Nedbank event for work. Basically I was there to do a few interviews and help out where I could with the rest of the team and our video team. It was an absolute blast!
Delicious is a decadent and exciting fusion of food and music so there is something for everyone to enjoy on the day. There was a great line-up of local and international artists performing but I was most excited for the food talent which included UK chef Reza Mahammad from Food Network as well as some of our best local Food Network chefs, Jenny Morris and Siba Mtongana.
Our day started super early with the team arriving at work at around 9am for us to head off together to the event which was about 20 or 30 minutes away. Of course the drive there was endless fun with us having a bunch of awesome conversations that had me laughing a ton.
The actual day was super long and freezing cold but enjoyable. From getting side eyed in a certain area we were not meant to be in to running across the event location to charge the camera batteries and all the famous faces we passed, it was an unforgettable day – definitely one for the books! At some point though I think I zoned out just before Chaka Khan’s performance because – let me say it again – I WAS FREEZING COLD! I will never get used to Winter in JHB. Never ever.
I was able to interview some super excited DStv subscribers about their time at Delicious and how much they love DStv. I always know how huge DStv is as a brand and how many millions of lives it touches, but actually meeting ordinary folk and hearing their stories remains a lovely time. It’s quite refreshing and simply sweet to hear what they have to say about the brand. DStv really is the best!
I didn’t get to take too many photos because for most of the day I left my phone at the charging station in VIP, but here are a few I was able to take in-between with my phone. Thanks to Wilma, Steven, Ash, Sips, Nqobile, Thirosha and Yentl for a fun time! Here’s to the next time we all hang out together again… oh wait, that’s everyday because I work with the best team EVER!
