We all have certain physical traits we’re instantly attracted to in other people. Sometimes it’s hair, sometimes it’s height, sometimes it’s eye color. But that can only take you so far.

I got a message recently asking if I would be interested in taking the new #OpelAdam for a test drive… now I’m not a car guru but I know what I like…. and I was NOT expecting to be THIS impressed.
This is the picture I saw when I googled ‘Opel Adam’. Obviously I was super keen to see if the drive matched the look.
WOW!!! Powerful. Quick. Smooth. Silent.
I was CONVINCED the #OpelAdam I was driving was a 1.6, 1.4 at LEAST… I was shocked to know it was a one litre turbo. So that means… it’s ridiculously low on fuel too. And from a ‘looks’ perspective, the rounded corners are soft and beautiful and the lines are sleek and sexy, making it a car that, in my opinion, is well suited to men and women. My boyfriend also had a lot of fun driving it.
The sound system was fun, loud, clear and the touch screen interface was a lot of fun to play with. It’s got all the bells and whistles without being filled with so many extras that it takes you a year to learn your car. Within the 4 days we were very comfortable in this gorgeous thing.
Not yet released in SA, I was told by the guys at Reeds CT that the Adam will be starting at about R190,000.
There are 3 different models:
the Adam which is a 1.4
the Adam Jam which is a 1.0 turbo (the one I drove)
and the Adam Glam which is also a 1.0 turbo .
They all come with the standard Opel intelli-link system. The system connects with your smartphone and all the info on your phone then runs via this system on a 7 inch screen.
The Jam and the Glam come standard with auto park assist (which is AWESOME)
with colour options: the Glam you can order with the twisted colour option, which means…. the darker colour vehicle will then come with a white roof.
AND…. for my peeps…
On the Glam there are LED lights in the roof with SEVEN DIFFERENT COLOUR SETTINGS!!! I’m finished.
these are just some of the features of the brand new Opel Adam

Cape Town – A YouTube video showing two men fight after a racial slur at the Cape Quarter Shopping Centre in Green Point has gone viral on social media.
In the video, two white men are standing at an ATM withdrawing cash.
They are then asked by a black man behind them in the queue to “hurry up”.
One of the men at the ATM responds by calling the man in the line the k-word.
The two start shouting at each other and a security guard attempts to intervene, but is left powerless when the fight gets physical.
At the end of the video the white man is on the floor after he was punched and kicked in the face by the black man. Police said no charges have been laid.
Centre management could not be reached for comment on Sunday.
– The above article I just saw online. Now I’m not an advocate of fighting… EVER, but in THIS day and age… for real. I love how people who literally ask for it… are shocked when the ‘get’ it. Day drunk and racist will lead to a punch in the face. ALWAYS. Well his drunk face is all over the interwebs now…. well done on making a damn fool of yourself bru. And in my hood. No man 😦
Also, love this post from a witness of the incident.
This week we remembered Michael Jackson, who passed away 5 years ago on June the 25th.
Every Saturday at 2:20pm I do my ‘YouTube clip of the week’. This week, sticking with the MJ theme, I have chosen this video.
With over 70 million views this little boy from Indonesia’s Got Talent is just too flipping good. The then 8 year old Kingsley Tahapary is a true little talent. Enjoy. If you have any videos you would like to share with me, please email them to email@example.com
Indonesia’s Got Talent (IGT) is an Indonesian television talent show competition which started in 2010. Anyone of any age with some sort of talent can audition for the show. Acts compete against each other in order to gain the audience support while trying to win the title of “The winner of Indonesia’s Got Talent”.
Every Saturday I post my YouTube clip of the week. This week’s clip was shown to me by my #Drive326 ‘bestie’ Nick Feinberg 🙂
This really is fan-flippin-tastic. An English supporter at an England-Peru football game throws his homemade paper plane from the toooooooooop of the stands. Watch as this paper plane makes its way not only all the way to the field, but straight into the face of one of the Peruvian player. AND THE CROWD GOES WILD!!!!
So this is the advert that was banned on our media? Interesting. Do you think the ban was called for? I would love to know your thoughts. K
From the sabc website:
“The SABC maintains it acted responsibly by taking a Democratic Alliance (DA) election campaign advertisement off the air.
The hearing on the DA’s complaint against the SABC was heard at the offices of the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (Icasa) in Sandton, north of Johannesburg, on Tuesday.
The matter was brought to Icasa on an urgent basis, following talks between the parties.
The DA laid a complaint with Icasa on Saturday after the SABC failed to broadcast its election advertisements on TV and radio.
The broadcaster cited various grounds, among them that the TV advert incited violence.
The advertisement in disputed shows the DA Gauteng Premier candidate, Mmusi Maimane, saying the ruling party is corrupt. The advert also makes reference to the Nkandla saga ( this saga refers to Public Protector Thuli Madonsela’s report on upgrades to President Jacob Zuma’s residence in Nkandla) and police brutality.
The SABC stated that the TV advert incited violence and that it gave false allegations about members of other political parties, among other reasons, but the DA argued that the SABC’s rejection of the party’s advert was an infringement on the freedom of expression.
The public broadcaster insists it had acted responsibly.”
