My journey into discovering myself

For a long time, I seek the answers to this question and I thought I might be a covert narcissist seeking attention. Many people I have come across judge me as attention seeker because I choose to be authentic instead of following what society think I should do, how I should behave and what they think is appropriate for a woman. For a long time, I thought they might be right, actually, I would accept what people tell...

Why do Mauritians tolerate unreliable tradesmen?

When I started having problems with a tap at my place, I called the landlord for him to get it fixed because the water pipe which needed accessing was behind the wall. He told me he would come along with a plumber to assess the damage on Monday. Once all inspection was done, Mr Trademen told me he would come round on Wednesday morning at 08:30am sharp. He was working in a bungalow at Albion and he would go there the ...

Pacific oven door exploding

The other day I was celebrating my two year olds birthday; we were all outside having a nice time when all of a sudden there was a loud bang. I ran inside to see as it sounded like something had fallen, to my horror the glass of my oven door exploded and shattered to pieces. I only purchased this oven 14 months ago and can count on one hand how many times I have used it. It has been sitting idle in my kitchen for wel...

La Friandise Birthday Kids Cake

A few months ago I started organising my two year olds birthday party; of course the cake was at the top of my list. When she turned one we had a cake made by La Friandise in Port Louis. It was a standard rectangle cake with her name on it., it was really nice and tasty so yummy. This year however I wanted an animal cake as my daughter really loves her animals. Some private bakers are asking way too much so after ask...

The Mauritian Bloggers meeting at Bagatelle

If you were at Bagatelle yesterday, 20th April 2013, you might have come across some popular and some not so famous Mauritian bloggers. How you would have recognised them, you might wonder. Simple - the table in the food court with the most gadgets would have been ours. Tablets, dSLRs and smartphones were on display to help you guys find us easier, lol. No we’re not geeks, we’re just passionate about technology! F...

Clever Dodo Shop introduces personalised rice charms

We’re very happy to announce our new collection of personalised gifts - rice charms. They were supposed to be ready for Valentines but unfortunately, our supplier did not have an important piece in stock and therefore it has taken this long to finally put this back on our online shop. For those who are not familiar with the concept of rice charms, they are an accessory where a word (usually name of a person) is wr...

What to do if you get a faulty gas cylinder / bobone gaz or a leak in it?

Unlike European countries, Mauritius does not have underground gas connections and therefore people have to use gas cylinders (bobone gaz) for cooking purposes. They are available in blue, red, green and yellow and they cost Rs330 each. Green is the least popular of them all though. It’s not just a colour preference but it’s actually how they get connected to your main appliance (eg cooker). Some need to be screwed i...

Salon International du Livre

As you may have seen, the International Book Far Mauritius (Salon International du Livre) started on Thursday 7th March until the 10th. As I didn’t have time during the week, I decided to go on the last day, Sunday. l was so shocked to see how many people there were; it was chaotic! I never usually go out on the weekends for this reason - there was so much pushing and shoving, no-one has any manners. Well I was ...

The Cyber City Parking Hell

I’ve heard so much of the Cyber City Tower at Ebene but never had a reason to visit it until yesterday. I had to return a Nomad modem for them to cancel the contract (that’s a long story and not the point of this post though). So on the motorway, I saw the sign to turn left (coming from Port-Louis) to head towards the tower which was fine until I was getting nearer to the place. I was driving in the second lane on t...

Mauritius Telecom / Orange slow internet connection issues

On Sunday evening, I noticed my internet connection was so slow that it took like forever to open a webpage. The problem seemed more apparent on Google and I wasn’t able to do any searches. At first I thought my computer was infected but that was not the case. Since it was late at night, I decided to check in the morning and was hopeful the hiccup would be gone. However the problem persisted the following day and so...
