Remembering my father

Today, 20 years ago, my father was suddenly taken from our lifes. Only a few hours before his death I was still with him not knowing what is laying ahead.  Life as I knew it changed on that day.  You have many questions and no answers. I remember we as a family wasn’t sure how to continue life without having him in it, however I can say today we survived and made it, although you do not have all the “why” answers.


My father taught me many things and added value to my life, which I still benefit from today.  You will always have memories and when you think about those memories you are taken back in time and experience them again. To trigger some of those memories you have photos:

Unfortunately digital cameras were not available yet at that time and we also didn’t take that much photos using your normal cameras. Actually the last photo I have is two years prior which we’ve captured from a video tape.

Why am I sharing this?  I want to tell anybody that has lost someone close to you that you will make it – just give it time.  Keep the memories, the photos and live your life as intended.  Nothing can bring them back.  Although I may have lost my father I was blessed with a dad that accepted me as his own, so although I lost someone I gained someone else.  You may not spend time anymore with the one you’ve lost but you may spend time with those that are still there.  Do not waste precious time and live your life with those still in it.

PS: I did something today what I never do or did over the last 20 years and that was visiting my father’s grave:

What I said 20 years ago I can still say today – he is not there…

Taking a break from YouTube


Hi there

It’s a year now that I’ve been making YouTube videos and I’ve learnt a lot throughout this year.  One thing that I’ve learnt is that it takes a lot of time to prepare a video, from capturing the footage to editing to the final video you are viewing.  When I do something I want to put all I have into it so that it could be a success.  The last few months I’ve battled to keep up with my weekly schedule of releasing a video and therefore I’ve made the decision to take a break from YouTube for a while – only until I’ve managed to release more time for it.

I’m in between a few development projects and it keeps me busy the whole time – I guess I didn’t manage my time correctly and now I have to work extra hours just to keep it above the water.  Once I’ve managed to get my schedule clear I will be posting videos again.  I will also be taking this time to decide where I want to go with the channel as at the moment it is very random – so watch this space.

Thank you for all those that have watched my videos up to now – I do appreciate it.


What is Life?

Oh wow I was here a long time ago…

This whole year I felt I was going somewhere until yesterday – yeah I had one of those days where I felt I’m going nowhere slowly.  Have you ever had a day like that – where it doesn’t make sense anymore?

Well this morning I decided to go to church, first time this year – not that it defines your relationship with God, but yeah long time since going to church – but that’s not what I want to talk about.

Usually when I get one of ‘these’ days I reflect on life and what life is all about.  Most of the times I luckily get to my answers fast before I may get depressed for days and then I continue with life as I know it.  This morning I remembered what I’ve read a few years back and what it has meant to me at that time.  I’m referring to John 6:16-21:

16And when even was now come, his disciples went down unto the sea,

17And entered into a ship, and went over the sea toward Capernaum. And it was now dark, and Jesus was not come to them.

18And the sea arose by reason of a great wind that blew.

19So when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the sea, and drawing nigh unto the ship: and they were afraid.

20But he saith unto them, It is I; be not afraid.

21Then they willingly received him into the ship: and immediately the ship was at the land whither they went.

At first if you read it you will go like, yeah I know it but what about it?  Look at the last verse…the word “immediately”… Makes you think doesn’t it? To get what I’m talking about go watch the video here:

Be blessed & PEACE!

Long weekend chills

This weekend is quite a long one, Friday was a public holiday and tomorrow (Monday) is another public holiday.  I must say it’s quite nice to relax a bit, however I may work tomorrow to catch up on some projects.

I hope we know why we have these public holidays and what the significance of these days are…  We are celebrating Easter and although it became a more commercial thing than what it is supposed to be we should take time and think what Jesus Christ did for us.  If it wasn’t for Him we would have been lost, but because He died for us and rose again on the 3rd day we can now have life and we can have it in abundance.  So come let’s live this life as it was intended.  I have to say there’s an atmosphere of peace hanging around – it’s quiet in the streets and it’s so peaceful. Maybe I’m the only one experiencing it but I hope others do also.

On another note, I release YouTube videos every Monday so I’ve almost skipped tomorrow, but luckily I came to my senses haha.  It was one of those on the spur of the moment videos – hopefully it will be something to watch.  If you are reading this before tomorrow you may be one of the first people to watch it as here is the direct link:

If you’ve watched this video you will see that I basically review an app I came across called “Face Swap Live”.  I have to say I quite enjoy the app and I’m just thinking on the technology in that app as it has to recognize a face, so I’m sure there is some sort of facial recognition within that app. Unfortunately no one was near when I did the video thus I couldn’t try out swapping out faces with another person – but I will try that out soon.

May you have an awesome weekend further!
Be blessed & PEACE!


Where did the Easter Bunny come from?

We grow up with many things and when you get older you start to wonder of how things came about.  One of these things lately is where in the world did the Easter Bunny came from – not to mention that this bunny lay eggs.

So I went and read a few articles on the internet to get answers.  Unfortunately nobody can give the exact answers and many are just speculating.  From all of the articles I’ve read I could get a slight idea of how the Easter Bunny with its chocolates eggs made its way into our lives.

If you want to find out more watch my latest video:

What is life about?

Do you also get those days where you sit back and watch your life go through your mind? Now sometimes this is good and sometimes not so good.  Good because you reflect on what you’ve achieved so far and you basically immediately set new goals.  Not so good when you feel that you may have missed some things along the way.

To be honest I have these days where I feel I haven’t achieved much in life and if I’m not careful it may take me for a depression ride.  Now these rides you have to avoid at all times!  You may drive off too far and then it’s not that easy to get back.  I also recently lost a good friend of mine when he died of a heart attack.  It was out of the blue and not to mention that he was as young as me.  Now these events make you think.  It makes you think on what is life about and why are you even doing what you are doing.  Questions may also arise of if life is worth living to start of with? The short answer to this is YES!

I’m a positive person and always try to see the positive side in anything that happens.  I do not let negativity try to get the best of me, but as you may have seen in this post I have to keep my mind sound or I may not stay positive.

So what is life about?  Why are we on this earth if one day, it’s like “poof” and you are gone? I don’t have all the answers but I do know life is worth living and that we only have one life – so make the best of it!  If you are unhappy where you are at in your life, you have the power and only you have the power, to make a change for the better.  The only thing standing in your way is yourself.   I don’t say make irresponsible decisions, but you are in control of your life.  Make changes if that will make you live life as it was intended, full of joy, love & peace.

I believe in God and in His Son Jesus Christ and inHis Word He says that Jesus came to give us life and not just life, but life in abundance.  So why should we settle for less?

Here is a video where I just spoke about what was on my heart and I will followup with more videos and posts about this.
