A Memoir - This Month Last Year - Sep 2017 www.thelifesway.com #TheLifesWay

Hi Friends, 

September is the start of the Spring and the first thing that comes in my mind, is my daughter's birthday on 1 Sep and then other things like Jacaranda Trees and Spring Cleaning the ecosystem around myself. 

1. @rAgeExpo is All Set to Celebrate 15 Years of Awesome Gaming #EscapetoPlanetrAge 6-8 Oct2017 - https://www.thelifesway.com/2017/09/rageexpo-is-all-set-to-celebrate-15.html - rAge Expo has been an awesome event and last year it was special for me as I won stuff during and after the show. I got myself a Maxnomic Gaming Chair from ESL via Kwese Gamer in an online contest and also won 1TB portable HDD from ADATA Technologies. Also, the press pack included Astrum earphones too along with several T-shirts from various brands. 2017 has been my successful rAge Expo ever in terms of goodies received. 

2. A Memoir - This Month Last Year - Sep 2016 www.thelifesway.com #TheLifesWay - https://www.thelifesway.com/2017/09/a-memoir-this-month-last-year-sep-2016.html - The story has been the same every year end when I stock take my efforts and the returns received. It's negative in most of the cases and where it's some positive, I am not able to devote time to those brands. This year I am ending this misery and no more Press Releases posts on my channel until it's paid for from 1 Jan 2019. Why be on the mercy of the brands when I can earn money and buy my own new stuff and tickets to shows I want to attend? 

3. New Motorola #Smartphone Models to Launch in SA #MotoZ2Play #MotoG5Splus @TelkomZA - https://www.thelifesway.com/2017/09/new-motorola-smartphone-models-to.html - Motorola launched their smartphones and soon after some months, it was being sold at more than 50% discount on Dionwired because of bad battery performance and no return on investment from customer's perspective. I didn't get a device to review but I asked some fellow bloggers about the device who reviewed the same. If you tell brands the truth, they boycott you which is self-explanatory in one sense but you need to take sugar with a pinch of salt sometimes.

4. DJ Tira Massacres #RedBullCultureClash 2017 Opponents @RedBullZA #Jozi - https://www.thelifesway.com/2017/09/dj-tira-massacres-redbullcultureclash.html - I loved DJ Tira at the media launch night in CBD, Johannesburg as I could not go to the actual event. But despite all the promotion on my channels, I didn't get any Red Bull cans etc from them for all the free promotion I did. But Red Bull is my favorite drink so I can let it all go without any guilt or so! 

5. @Discovery_SA @JacarandaFM #SpringWalk Welcomed Spring With A Beat #Pretoria - https://www.thelifesway.com/2017/09/discoverysa-jacarandafm-springwalk.html - Last year I was invited to the Jacaranda FM for the Spring Walk and I did 5kms with my family. This year I did 15 km walk with my friend and it was difficult but I really enjoyed finishing the same in around 2hrs 42min. This was my 2nd 15km in this year after MTN Walk the Talk 15kms. The body was much more relaxed and I was able to complete the race as compared to the first time.

This year I will finish 6 years of The Life's Way and I don't want to waste my time on brands which don't value me or my efforts. I will only do what inspires me to write and what pays me to write and promote on my social media platforms. I have plenty of other things to achieve in my life rather than wasting my time on stuff and brands which just want free promotion. 

Cheers!!!

Hi Friends,

Back for the second year, the International Consumer Electronics Expo South Africa (ICEE SA 2018) will showcase cutting-edge technology in action and provide an opportunity to make connections with some of China’s biggest technology suppliers.

Visit the Sandton Convention Centre from 7 to 9 November 2018 to take a step into the future and experience the only professional consumer electronics expo in Africa. There will be 10 categories of electronics on display in Exhibition Hall 1 from 10am to 6pm on 7 and 8 November and 10am to 5pm on 9 November. Entrance is free.
See The Latest Cutting-edge Technology in Action at #iceeSA2018 @ICEESA_2017
Thousands of electronic products will be on display, falling into 10 categories:
  • The internet of things
  • Wearables
  • Unmanned systems
  • Gaming and peripherals
  • Emerging technology
  • Vehicle technology
  • Family and lifestyle electronics
  • Communication products and accessories
  • Portable electronic products and accessories
  • Computer hardware, software, and peripherals
This exclusive electronics expo tours the world, also visiting the United Arab Emirates, Kenya, Thailand, Iran, and Brazil. After South Africa, it will go to India, Indonesia, and Russia. This is the ideal opportunity for people in Gauteng and surrounding areas to come and discover innovative technology that has not yet been released locally. It’s also a one-stop shop for anyone looking to connect with some of China’s best technology suppliers. See The Latest Cutting-edge Technology in Action at #iceeSA2018 @ICEESA_2017
 South Africa has the largest consumer electronics market in Africa and is one of the top 20 global markets for consumer electronics products. In addition to its large domestic market, the country also plays a significant role as a hub for the growing sub-Saharan market. Most global IT players have a presence in South Africa.

The ICEE•SA 2018 exhibitors are all manufacturers and factory owners from China’s technology hub, Shenzhen, which has been compared to Silicon Valley in the US. Shenzhen is located in south-eastern China, on mainland China’s border with Hong Kong.
 
“We aim to create a new vision that will lead to a brighter future for the electronics markets in the countries that we visit. Newly launched products will be showcased at ICEE SA 2018 and we carefully select only the top exhibitors to ensure that the products on display are of optimum quality,” says expo organizer Elva Wang, project manager at Hong Kong-based DFE International.

“The expo is positioned at the forefront of technological transformation and it not only provides the opportunity for consumers to experience the latest electronics first-hand, but it is the ideal platform for Southern African buyers to negotiate with manufacturers face to face,” Wang adds.

“The products are well priced for local wholesalers, retailers, and SMEs who trade in electronics.”

There will be various workshops at the expo where visitors can learn about new technology and there will also be a conference about investment opportunities and trade relations between South Africa and China, starting at 2pm on 7 November.

Gauteng’s Premier Entertainment Destination @MontecasinoZA Scoops Four Awards #GottaLuvMonte

Hi Friends,

Eighteen years since opening its doors to an expectant, entertainment-hungry public who continue to cast their votes in Montecasino’s favour in the Best of Joburg Awards, Gauteng’s premier entertainment destination has scooped awards in four categories of the popular reader’s choice awards.
Gauteng’s Premier Entertainment Destination @MontecasinoZA Scoops Four Awards #GottaLuvMonte
The Teatro which is situated on Montecasino's Piazza 1
Gratifyingly, the Teatro at Montecasino, which is currently home to the award-winning international hit stage production, Matilda The Musical, won Best Theatre for the ninth consecutive year. The Teatro celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2017 and proudly continues to bring new audiences to the theatre year after year.

On the sporting end of the entertainment spectrum, Montecasino was also voted the Best Place to Watch the Big Game, attesting to the incredible atmosphere and spirit that can felt on the Piazza whenever Boktown fever takes hold. On the restaurant front, Best Greek restaurant went to Mythos, a relative newcomer to Montecasino, and, unsurprisingly, the overwhelmingly popular Fireroom won the Best Sushi award for its innovative and experiential flaming sushi offering.
