Pikitup strike - photos of narrowing streets piled high with trash...

I snapped these shots in Orchards in Johannesburg this week - the gap left in the road was just about wide enough for a single car to make it through...

Wow... all I can say is that I hope the strike ends soon...

Charlie Chaplin makes an appearance on Google today :)

Today is Charlie Chaplin's 122nd Birthday, and as always, the team at Google have put together a doodle to celebrate it.
This time though, it's a very clever embedded video in place of the usual Google logo... head over to and take a look.

Chinese toy packaging is funny stuff...

I was recently at a shop which had a whole shelf full of cheap Chinese toys, and I couldn't resist snapping a few shots of the directly translated phrases on the packaging.

Some funny stuff there... see for yourself (click each image to enlarge :)

New Apple "Premium" Store opening at Eastgate soon... unless this sign is to be believed...? ;)

Eastgate Shopping Centre in Johannesburg has changed so much in recent years, and being someone who rarely visits the place anymore, it can be a little confusing trying to figure out all of the alterations that have been made, and all of the new shops that have sprung up.

One such shop, which is likely to be highly anticipated by many people, is the Apple iStore - due to open next door to Cape Union Mart sometime soon.

I had to have a good giggle then, when I saw this signage outside the soon-to-be Apple iStore (considering, of course that Apple is such a premium brand...):

No matter how hard I searched online, I just could not figure out the meaning of this brave new word that Apple have created.
Just what does "premuim" mean? :)
