Metrorail Diaries - Cheese It and Enjoy It

Written by

"All Trains are running 10 minutes late" Voicemail Lady announces.
We aren’t really paying attention. We are used to this. The train eventually comes rushing into the station, pretending to be on time.
The vibe on board is not too vibrant. Capetonians are affected by the weather and temperatures. Cold and overcast weather in the middle of summer does not encourage us to have spontaneous conversations. We usually become withdrawn on days like this, but today someone luckily breaks the silence.

The Untameable Wolf - coming from 'Junk' status

Written by

One of my friends called me the other day to ask what is going on with me and why am I not saying anything on facebook anymore - not even commenting on stuff.
Well, I am not in a very good socialising space over-all right now, so I am not really focussing on the stuff that are making everyone run to the toilet over the last few weeks.
I have no opinion. As far as the 'Junk' status is concerned, I told him - "It's happened before and went right over the heads of the majority, including mainstream media, but the thing here is - I grew up like that - many of us come from 'Junk'.

History has been made in the Cape Town High Court with a 66 page judgement from Judge Denis Davis and the bench of three. The use and cultivation of the cannabis plant in the privacy of your own home has now been deemed constitutional.

Bruinou.com has never overtly condoned or condemned the use of cannabis but we have always taken a stance that the criminalisation of dagga has had a much more devastatingly negative impact on our society than the use thereof could or can ever have.

Metrorail Diaries - A Scary Act

Written by

‘Climate Change’; it is a term enjoying prominence in the last decade with Cape Town and its Mediterranean climate being the front-runner of this phenomenon.  
It’s a sunny windless morning with the smell of perfume and cologne trying to overwhelm the senses; each one has its own character and charm.


“Wat klap soe?” a guy asks a group of three friends as the train makes its way to the next station.
“It staan soe” a guy from the group replies.
“Hosh” the first guy replies.
“Gaan ôs soe dala my ma se kin?” another guy asks.
“Aweh ôs staan op haai nomme. ’n Man moet ’n kroon kyk, of wat sê die broese?” another guy in the group interjects, looking at the rest of the group.

Nice Coat & All That Jazz

Written by

Tourists from abroad, from other parts of Mzansi and even a large number of Capetonians often only know the city you see in brochures.
Soli Philander takes you on a journey through the Mother City using rhyme and poetry delivered in a conversational style delving into the nitty-gritty of what makes Cape Town an experience that is much more intricate than any brochures can ever do it justice.

Veels Geluk aan Early B, Hemel Besem, Jerome Rex en Linkris met hul benoemings as die Ghoema 2017 Finaliste in die Beste Hip Hop Liedjie Van Die Jaar Kategorie.

Smoortjies en Smoothies is intended to take us on journey of tastes and flavours and to get the event we had to take a little journey to the town of Paarl. As we were winding our way through the beautiful rural scenery, we were wondering how anyone not familiar with the area would even find the venue but once we arrived at the Old Mill Theatre, we realised that the trip was going to be all worth it.


No, Smoortjies & Smoothies is not a food festival but it was definitely a feast filled with musical flavour.

She was seven years old when her dad already knew what we are all now discovering.
Celest Schoemans' father knew then that his daughter is destined to be a star.

That she is Super Talented and will continue to gain in popularity is no doubt a fact, but we at Bruinou.com also found her to be really charming and delightful and those  endearing features are what will gain her many more fans.
