2023.06.02 16:59 endersgame69 Kayobi's Days Off C12

The early part of the day was very quiet. Two people rushing in with panicked expressions raced in and snagged travel sewing kits meant for quick repairs. The relief on their faces… well, it felt pretty good to be able to provide what they needed on the spot. I smiled, pointed to the card reader, and wished them luck.
I got some funny looks, as well I should, given that they lived in this complex. The pair, one young man, one young woman, each wearing old suits that didn’t quite fit with the times or fit with their bodies, had clearly borrowed the clothes for job interviews and saw disaster in the form of a sudden and unexpectedly discovered tears in the old cloth.
If the Toriyama store hadn’t been there? Well, I doubt their day would have gone as smoothly. ‘No wonder she likes running it.’ I thought with a little smile on my face while I watched the wall clock continue to move forward one minute at a time.
I stopped clockwatching to go wipe down the counter by the bento. There was a sink and a soft cloth there waiting for use, and given the circumstances I figured… ‘Why not? What else is there to do?’ There were no customers for a fair bit, which wasn’t that surprising given the hour.
Kids were at school, most functional adults were at work, and nonfunctional ones tended not to have much in the way of money. The warm water felt good on my hands and before long the clean counter was cleaner than before.
From there I thought… ”Now what?” And I put my hands on my hips to look around the store. I looked toward the doors. ‘Still nobody.’ I thought, and went to check the inventory of things that were currently on the shelves. Dried seaweed was low… so I went to the back room behind the register to check the stock of goods… and frowned.
‘Alright… that’s not good. No, that’s bad, that’s very, very bad.’ The thought ran through my head as I looked within what was clearly the storage area for restocking… which was instead a sad sort of place, clean, like the rest of the store.
But that is what made it sad. See, I’d never held a real job on Earth, but I did know enough from movies, t.v. and manga that if you wanted to show that a place was dying, whether it be a restaurant or a store or whatever, the best way to do that was to show that it was damn near empty. ‘I’m out of… we ran out of… sorry, we don’t have…’ Whenever you heard that phrase in entertainment media, it was meant to show that a place was not doing well for itself.
There should have been multiple big boxes on pallets stacked way up, with just… all the snacks, not to mention all the cleaning supplies and prepackaged food and…
I had a sinking feeling. This was just the dry goods, the stuff that was plastic wrapped and packaged and so on.
There was a side door in this area, heavy and metal, it opened into the freezer. I cracked that door open and went inside, the icy chill hit my skin all at once and I wrapped my arms around my body and gave an audible shiver. “Brrr!” I said to myself as I ventured within.
This place should have had stacks of meat and drinks meant for the refrigerated section, all the basics that kept people going through that last hour or two.
But instead there were only a handful of boxes along the wall, none were higher than two deep up and two deep out, each aligned according to the product on the shelf.
But most of the produce shelf had just plain nothing.
My mind turned back to the two thugs who’d come into the store, and I spun on my heel, striding out of the deep freeze and venturing back to the register.
Still nobody was coming in, so I opened the register, checked for the paper envelope and cracked it open. There, I started counting.
Human money confuses me to no end. Every country has its own, and every country values every other country’s currency at a different rate from their own. Even the rate at which they valued their own currency didn’t actually match what was written on their damn stupid pieces of paper.
All I could do while I counted was grumble. “Damn stupid confusing inefficient barbaric primitive nonsensical absurd ridiculous daft temple to madness, forget whyhow in all the hells of all the gods in all the Universe does anyone do anything this way?!”
I managed to get a count of the money within and tried to work out the relative cost compared to what I spent on things.
“So… let me work this out…” I mumbled and began drumming my fingers on the counter next to the register, “I pay that for a pizza… and this is like a few hundred pizzas so…”
My mouth dropped. “This is like a thousand pizzas?!” I shrieked with shock and horror… “No way?!” I couldn’t believe my own math, so I went to the far office. I’d seen through there sometimes when the door was open, and I knew Suki had a desk in there.
I tried the handle, it turned, it wasn’t locked. The wooden door swung inward when I pushed, and my eyes were greeted by a dizzying array of scattered papers, notebooks open with various numbers that were just… just dizzying to behold.
It was the exact opposite of the neat and orderly existence outside. I hesitated, fingers still curled around the doorhandle, my NEET brain screamed ‘Flee! This is an unholy land filled with math and confusion!’ But I did not flee.
I did not turn away.
I did. Not. Run.
I stepped within, leaving the door open at my back to both hear incoming customers and to ensure I could easily flee if the numbers assaulting my brain began to overwhelm me.
I did feel a little guilty, enough so that I couldn’t bring myself to actually sit in the cracked leather chair. The poor thing had clearly seen much better days, it was tilted slightly where one wheel was broken, once smooth brown back was tilted in such a way that suggested it was probably broken and couldn’t be leaned back in without it falling apart entirely.
There was one thing that perhaps saved my brain from a meltdown.
When you’re late paying a human organization, they really want you to know it. So a lot of the papers I saw were stamped ‘late notice’ or some variation thereof.
‘If she’s paying protection money to some yakuza baddies… no wonder she can’t pay her bills.’ My frown deepened as I began looking at one paper after another, just what was in that one single envelope was enough to pay most of the bottom numbers on the bills I picked up, and based on the dates, these were cumulative months.
“With that? She’d be just fine…” I mumbled and dropped the papers to fall like feathers in the breeze back down to the desk. I narrowed my eyes down at the desk.
Nobody needs to tell me that I can be sort of lazy. That’s the whole point of my vacations. But I really, really, like being a Painter. It’s not just that I’m good at it, I really see value in what I do. I hate dictators, they don’t just take lives, they take happiness. From where I’m sitting… standing, that is, these guys are just small scale dictators, leeches.
They were exactly the sort I do not like.
I heard the ding of the door as a customer walked in and hastened out to meet them. “Welcome to Toriyama’s.” I said with a smile as I stood in front of the register. I kicked the pants of the two petty tin pots out of my way, and started planning what I would do when my day was done.

2023.06.02 13:33 Abdullah_Khawar Custom Pie Boxes: Elevate Your Pie Presentation

Custom Pie Boxes: Elevate Your Pie Presentation
Custom pie boxes are a vital component in the world of bakery packaging. These boxes not only serve as a protective casing for pies but also play a significant role in enhancing their presentation and increasing their appeal to customers. In this article, we will explore the importance of custom pie boxes, their benefits, and how they can help you create a memorable experience for your customers. Discover the various customization options available, the materials to consider, and the key factors to keep in mind when selecting custom pie boxes for your bakery.

The Importance of Custom Pie Boxes:

· Protection and Freshness: Custom pie boxes provide a secure and protective environment for pies during transportation and storage. They prevent damage, maintain the pie's shape, and preserve its freshness. By investing in sturdy and reliable packaging, you ensure that your pies reach customers in perfect condition, enhancing their overall satisfaction.
· Presentation and Branding: Custom pie boxes offer an excellent opportunity to showcase your bakery's brand identity and create a memorable impression. With customized printing options, you can incorporate your logo, brand colors, and enticing visuals that reflect the quality and uniqueness of your pies. This helps create a cohesive and professional image for your bakery.
· Marketing and Information: Pie boxes can also serve as a marketing tool by providing key information to customers. Include details such as pie flavors, ingredients, nutritional information, and your bakery's contact information. This not only helps customers make informed choices but also allows them to easily reach out to you for repeat orders or inquiries.

Customization Options for Pie Boxes:

· Box Design and Shape: Consider the design and shape of the custom pie boxes to complement the style and presentation of your pies. Choose from traditional square or rectangular boxes or explore unique shapes that align with your brand or the occasion. For example, you could opt for circular pie boxes for a more contemporary look or heart-shaped boxes for Valentine's Day specials.
· Printing and Branding: Custom printing is a powerful way to elevate your pie boxes. Work with a packaging supplier that offers high-quality printing services to ensure vibrant colors and crisp graphics. Showcase your bakery's logo prominently, along with appealing images that reflect the deliciousness of your pies. Additionally, consider adding a tagline or a brief description that captures the essence of your bakery's offerings.
· Window Cutouts: Incorporating window cutouts on your custom pie boxes allows customers to peek inside and see the tantalizing pies. This feature not only entices customers but also adds a visual element that enhances the overall presentation. Window cutouts can be designed in various shapes and sizes, such as round, square, or even custom shapes that align with your bakery's branding.
· Finishing Touches: Consider additional finishing touches to add a touch of elegance and refinement to your custom pie boxes. Options such as embossing, debossing, foil stamping, or spot UV coating can create a premium look and feel, making your pies stand out from the competition. These details contribute to a memorable unboxing experience for your customers.

Selecting the Right Materials:

· Sturdy and Food-Safe: Choose materials that are sturdy enough to protect the pies during handling and transportation. Opt for food-safe materials that meet industry standards to ensure the integrity and freshness of your pies.
· Eco-Friendly Options: Consider environmentally friendly materials for your custom pie boxes. Recyclable and biodegradable options, such as kraft paperboard or corrugated cardboard, align with sustainable practices and demonstrate your bakery's commitment to the environment.
· Functional Features: Evaluate the functionality of the pie boxes. Look for options with secure closures, such as tuck-in flaps or locking mechanisms, to prevent the boxes from accidentally opening during transit. Additionally, consider boxes with grease-resistant or moisture-resistant coatings to protect against pie fillings and liquids.


Custom pie boxes offer a multitude of benefits for bakeries looking to enhance their pie presentation and create a lasting impression on customers. By investing in custom gift boxes, you not only protect your pies but also elevate their overall appeal. Selecting the right customization options, materials, and finishing touches will enable you to create a cohesive and visually appealing packaging solution that aligns with your bakery's brand identity. Embrace the opportunity to showcase your creativity, capture the attention of customers, and provide an exceptional unboxing experience. With custom pie boxes, you can make every slice of pie feel special and memorable.

2023.06.02 13:25 amermaidfromjupiter My roommate/landlord keeps making comments about my lifestyle and implying she wants to “fix me”

I moved into my new roommate (who is also my landlord)‘s place almost exactly two weeks ago. This was my first choice while I was apartment-hunting. I came from almost a full year of a really toxic and tense living environment with two people my age, one of whom was a former friend. When I first got here, it was the first time in a really long time that I felt happy and excited for life. It has made everything else that has been wrong with my life come to the forefront in a way I’m having trouble ignoring, which I take as a sign that I need to address and fix these things as well. That said, in my pessimistic fashion that’s always too reliable for my liking, I was wondering if and when the other shoe was going to drop. It seems like it either has or is trying now.
To put it simply, I feel like my new roommate is trying to fix my life with what she personally feels like I need. More frequently, when I’ve come back from work—and I’m the sort of person who wants to spend time alone and decompress, especially since the commute is longer than it was before, and my job is stressing me out a lot more, she has made more unsolicited and unprompted comments about what I’m doing “wrong”. For example, the day after I moved, I got a Walmart delivery that was just under $180. That’s definitely a lot of money for me, but I literally had no food at all and was trying to restock to be set for a while. That order also included household items we needed, like a bunch of rolls of paper towels. She has repeatedly made comments to me about this as if it’s so hilarious that I spent that much money and I don’t know what I’m doing. She has also repeatedly made comments about the food I eat. She keeps telling me not to get any more groceries because she’s going to get me on this illegal thing she does with food stamps, where she purchases them from another woman and you can buy whatever you want for half the price.
Additionally, she recently has been on my case to get my permit and actually going to practice driving around (I have never been behind the wheel ever before), because she doesn’t want me to use the buses anymore. Then yesterday, she, out-of-the-blue, started telling me I can’t stay in my room “and sleep” all day, and went on a whole kind of stereotypical older person rant about how my generation is “too soft” and “we need to let things go”. She kept saying she doesn’t know some of the things I’ve been through because I haven’t told her and she won’t pry, and then insinuated I don’t know what a real struggle is and she has been through hell and back and knows what does and doesn’t work. I have previously told her that I’m planning to get a new phone ASAP because the one I have is still being paid for by my mother, who I want to go NC with and don’t speak to, and she said “that’s not a bill I need”, “parents come around”, and the least I could do is give my mother a call to flex on her because she’s paying for my phone.
Now, these comments are just annoying more than anything else, especially because they strike me as “older person condescendingly sharing wisdom that’s outdated and not actually helpful” (for context, she is 46 and I’m 23). I also hate how they’re given when I literally just walked through the door. At least for now, I’m not actually triggered or really upset. But I just don’t see why she feels so comfortable making them, and I’m worried she will try to move from words to action, especially with the illegal food stamp thing and driving to force me to drive. I also just don’t like the authoritative comments about how I should be spending my time in the place I’m paying for. She has made other comments like “I couldn’t wait to get you into the palm of my hand” that implies she sees me as an experiment or something she’s going to have fun morphing.
One of the things that appealed to be about this place in particular was the fact that she kept saying it’s quiet and I would be left alone, which is something I definitely didn’t have at my last apartment (or anywhere I’ve lived honestly). I just want a place where I can just be me comfortably, have predictability and communication, and live my life in peace. To be frank, I’m generally exhausted and only working on improving my life now because I’m still alive and unfortunately look like I won’t be dying anytime soon. I spent the last year incredibly depressed and constantly planning and fantasizing about su!c!de because life was so bad; and it’s like someone who doesn’t know the full extent of that wants you all cheery and running around at the flip of a switch and is unpleasantly surprised that isn’t the case.
For clarity though, while I do spend a lot of time in my room—because I like having a space that’s really just mine, and also because this is the first time in a year where I’ve had a real and comfortable bed to sleep in and I honestly like just lying down on it—, I’m not sleeping the day away, or scared to come out like I was at my last place. I’m really just an introvert, but I’m also just worn out by people overall and don’t like to interact with them if I don’t have to. I also don’t see a need to tell her my life story, as we’re just roommates, and I’ve been burned a lot by telling those stories to people who didn’t actually need them. I also don’t know how she’s going to construe them, and whether or not they’ll be a “real struggle” or grounds for more unsolicited commentary.
Moreover, I don’t want or need the food stamps. Knowing my luck, that’s when someone is going to catch on and then I’ll have a record for fraud, theft, or whatever crime that would be. Yesterday, she said she would protect me if anything ever happened, but I have no reason to believe that. I also don’t want to learn how to drive right now. Maybe down the road, but I don’t mind and actually enjoy riding the buses. The things that I need to do that matter to me now are getting a new job and getting my own phone.
I don’t know, I guess I wanted some outside perspective. Am I being too pessimistic and unappreciative of what she’s saying? Do I have the right to not be super amused by what she’s saying? What should I do, or intend to do, moving forward?

4 Practical tips for Hacking IXL
Many students dislike IXL due to the complexity of the questions it assigns. Cheating on IXL consistently may lead to a high point total, but it will not result in any learning. As a result, we’ve developed some practical recommendations to assist you in responding to these questions. Additionally, these questions will alter your perspective regarding IXL, and you may begin to enjoy your practice sessions.
Errors propel you closer to success.
Errors are a natural part of learning; view them positively and use them to improve. For instance, if you receive a low grade on a subject, review your notes and repeat the test. You will see that your results are sure to improve. Similarly, the more you practice, the more opportunities you will have to get good points.
Establish realistic goals and commemorate them
A decent result of 80 indicates that you are knowledgeable about the subject. Similarly, a higher score indicates more excellent proficiency with the issue. However, it would be beneficial to begin with realistic and attainable goals to maintain self-motivation for a higher score. If you earn 100 points on every subject, you have mastered it. Celebrate your excellent score by taking a break from academics or doing something you enjoy, as a high score is what most university students strive for.
Between practice sessions, take breaks.
Between lengthy practice sessions on IXL, you must take pauses or obtain some fresh air. When you are inactive, IXL automatically stores your progress. Intervals between sessions will assist in recharging your energy so that you can resume your practice. When you’re ready to continue your work, you can return to the page and begin practicing. Especially math teachers are highly benefited. The program detects inactivity if you are inactive for a long time.
Keep notes and a pencil on hand to jot down math problems.
Solving than performing mental math on most questions is vital. Also, it is preferable to solve them in a notebook. This way, you’ll be able to answer more questions without exhausting yourself. Additionally, completing mental math problems needs more work; if the user answers problems in a notepad, he may do so more quickly.

2023.06.02 10:31 lazycat1989 Trip Review - South Africa, May 2023

Just got back from a solo trip through South Africa, and despite all the cautions and reservations I heard on- and off-line, I loved every bit of it! Sharing some quick notes here for reference, and happy to answer any queries from people thinking of travelling there.
34 yo Indian man. Not the primest of targets for crime, admittedly, but I didn't really look like a poor write-off as well.
21 May 2023 - 31 May 2023
2N in Johannesburg with visits to Apartheid Museum, Soweto, and Rosebank Mall. Stayed at Clico Boutique Hotel in Rosebank. Found the city to be pleasant and well worth the stopover, also perfectly safe if navigated using Uber or through join-in tours.
3N in Greater Kruger, specifically at Nyati Safari Lodge in the Balule Reserve, with 2x game drives daily (morning and evening). Saw 3 of the big 5 (missed out on Rhinos and Leopards but have seen them earlier in India, so no heartache) as well as animals unique to Africa - hippos (right outside my room!), zebra, giraffes, and more antelopes than I can remember the names of. Also did a bushwalk, and loved all the bush sundowners and breakfasts. It was absolutely safe inside the lodge, the bigger threats mere mischeivous monkeys raiding the mini-bar. This was my first African Safari experience, and I loved every bit of it - can definitely see myself become a safari hoe in the years to come.
2N in Franschhoek, with a day-long self-cycle through the region (the road from Berg River Dam to Huguenot Memorial is beautiful), and more wine tastings (highly recommend Eikehof and Glenwood) than I'd had in the entirety of my life till the day. The place was my favourite in SA - beautiful, delicious, creative, and a bubble of safety. Stayed at the lovely Chanteclair guesthouse (the host Allan is a gem).
3N in Cape Town, with visits to Table Mountain, the waterfront, a peninsula tour (Camp's Bay, Hout Bay, Chapman's Peak, Cape of Good Hope, Boulders Penguin Colony, and Muizenberg), Kirstenbosch, Company's Garden, Zeitz MCAA (fantastic if you're into art) and Bo Kaap (with the lovely and free Cape Town Walking Tours). The city is easily one of the most, if not the most, beautiful in the world - the setting is spectacular, even in the cold, windy, rainy weather I was there in. It was also markedly safer than Joburg, and there were several parts of town where walking around didn't make me feel as on-edge. Stayed at Taj Cape Town (stellar downtown hotel which allows easier access to the actual city than the tourist enclave hotels of the lively but sterile Waterfront area).
Almost everyone I spoke to before visiting South Africa painted it as a free-for-all crime zone. I'd be mugged, raped, killed, or whatnot here, they said. Don't go alone. Don't go at all. All of it, ofcourse, turned out to be overblown, panic-stricken hogwash. I navigated the country without incident. BUT I didn't just stroll into town with an open wallet either - I made sure to stay at good hotels (within my budget), keep my valuables hidden away like in a secure backpack or an inside pocket, check locally for safety advice, and use Ubers or tours wherever recommended. These weren't special safety procedures designed for South Africa, mind you, they were just common precautions I'd use in any country I was visiting. It helped my travel remain incident free, and the only time I was approached by someone mildly unsavoury was when a drunk man stumbled past saying 'Good day brother' in Bo Kaap. The biggest threat to my safety in SA turned out to be marauding monkeys at my lodge near Kruger who raided the neighbouring room's minibar and made away with milk and coffee sachets. Also, contrary to some advice, things left lying around in my hotel room as well as check-in baggage at the airports remained absolutely safe and untampered.
Power (Cuts)
Load shedding is rife, and Joburg was seeing 10-12 hours of load shedding while I was there. However, all my hotels had power backup, and all the spots I visited had power backup (wherever needed), so I effectively only ever noticed loadshedding during the switch-overs between supply and gensets in my smaller Joburg and Franschhoek hotels. I even disabled the push notifications for the power supply app (ESP) because it was of no real use to me any more. Moral of the story - make sure your hotel has power backup, and carry a power bank in the unlikely event you find yourself at a cafe without electricity. Also, check up on the power points - I didn't do my research properly and had to buy two overpriced plugs in Joburg.
Joburg had crisp weather with lots of sun, but cool temperatures. Kruger had warm days and cool nights - layers were essential! Franschhoek was kinda like Joburg weather, while Cape Town was windy and rainy. The only place I could contemplate swimming was in Kruger and in the heated pool of my Cape Town hotel.
EXCELLENT everywhere, even in remote Kruger. Franschhoek, however, was a highlight - if there's one place you'd want to splurge for good food, it's here. Also helps that the wine is cheap and plentiful and sublime. For vegetarians and vegans, most restaurants had symbols identifying suitable menu items, and everyone speaks English so its easy to clarify. Would recommend making online reservations at the more popular fine dining spots.
On the whole, South Africa is very affordable for someone used to American or European or Japanese or Singaporean prices, especially with the unabated fall of the ZAR. Coming from India, however, it was a bit of a mixed bag - dining out was very cheap, and hotels were great value, but domestic flights and longer taxi transfers (like Cape Town - Franschhoek or the day tours) felt expensive. Uber rides and high street shopping were just a tad pricier than I'm used to in India while the coffee and alcohol prices were an absolute delight. Entrance tickets to most sights, however, are fairly steep and much closer to the European norm than the African or Asian. That said, major sights are professionally managed, clean, safe, and have power backup.
Tipping is expected, I'd round things upward of 10% of the bill amount, except at a fine dining experience in Franschhoek where a service charge was explicitly included and informed about. Tips can be added to the card machine and need not necessarily be paid in cash.
Paying by card is practically universal in tourist-friendly spots (including entry tickets and even for smaller payments), and I didn't need to exchange any extra cash or use an ATM. Visa and Mastercard work everywhere ofcourse, and Amex has appreciable reach as well. Diner's Club and others, however, won't help.
It's good to exchange a small amount like 100 USD to help with petty payments like parking tickets or small tips or quick bites from convenience stores.
I purchased a Vodacom sim on arrival at Johannesburg, and it worked well everywhere, even giving 5G in most of Joburg, Cape Town, and Franschhoek centre. Data and talktime prices were a tad expensive (I'm spoilt because it's dirt cheap in India), but it was easy to top things up online or at stores on-the-go.
Free WiFi was widely available at airports, tourist sights, restaurants, malls etc, and worked quite decentl
Getting around
Uber works well in Joburg and Cape Town, with many local recommending Uber X. Bolt, however, was universally NOT recommended because it wasn't very reliable. I didn't try public transport, but heard that the Gautrain in Joburg and the Myciti BRT in Cape Town were safe and good quality.
I also flew from Johannesburg to Hoedspruit and Hoedspruit to Cape Town with Airlink, which was a great little regional airline with good service, punctual arrivals/departures, and a very tourist-friendly schedule and network. The tickets were quite overpriced though, and Amex refused to work on their own website, but I did get to check-in on to business class seats on economy tickets so I guess it was good overall.
I didn't self-drive. However, I met several travellers who did it (including a German lady who was campervanning solo across the entirety of southern Africa), and they reported it being easy and safe. The only precautions were to make sure you were hiring from a reputable company, not driving too much at night (out of fear of being stranded more than anything else), and purchasing the insurance plan with the agent. I did use plenty of roads, and generally observed that most highways were in decent shape and allowed for 100+ kmph speeds. Petrol stations were plentiful, and many came attached with convenience stores and mini-malls, usually with power backup. For parking, you'd usually have a local tout popping up helping you manouevre the car and watch over it for a small 5-10 ZAR tip (don't skimp on this, as petty thieves have been known to break into unattended cars to pilfer whatever they can, though I never ever saw this in action - practically every street in every town had a parking attendant on hand).
I did cycle around Franschhoek by myself and it was fantastic, much better than the kitschy Wine Tram experience. It was also very safe, and I even biked through town for dinner and some moonlight photos. The only bugbears were car traffic on the main roads, and a caution by the bike rental shop against leaving the night lamp on the bike unattended (had to unlatch it and keep it on me instead - but still, safer than biking in Amsterdam lol).
Getting there
Joburg is the biggest international airport with the better flight deals and has direct flights to all inhabited continents. It's a fairly modern and easy-to-use terminal, and I didn't observe any of the usual scams. Cape Town is the better looking airport, but has fewer connections, although it's still easy to get here with a simple transit at a major hub like London or Dubai. Durban also has a middle-sized airport with a handful of long haul links.
Most other airports are small - Hoedspruit was basically a collection of open-to-air pavillions - and have only domestic flights to the likes of JNB or CPT. Nelspruit, in southern Kruger has a few Airlink connections with Victoria Falls and the Mozambique coast, aimed at holidayers.
As an Indian, I was eligible for an evisa but the system never worked, taking my documents but never letting me pay the application fee. I instead applied manually at Delhi's VFS centre, and got my visa in 2 days (the VFS staff also told me that the evisa portal was hopeless and I shouldn't even have bothered). The evisa system finally budged while I was en-route to JNB, telling me that my application was rejected because I never submitted a bank statement (which I did) and completely ignored the fact that I never paid for my application (thanks to the inactive payment link). The rejection clearly didn't get slotted in anywhere because Immigrations was absolutely fine with my stamped-visa and didn't bother asking me anything other than why I was visiting and when I'd leave.
I flew in on Etihad via Abu Dhabi (decent airline but the airport needs a lot of work to compete with its neighbours) and back on Emirates via Dubai (excellent airline with very generous meals and a great IFE, as well as a huge and modern megahub airport experience albeit with overpriced food and shopping). Flight timings were fairly convenient both ways, with day-time arrivals and check-ins.
Some of the friendliest I've ever met! Everybody is happy to have a zany chat, and conversations can quickly become pal-ly and banter-ful if you're open enough. On the whole South Africans felt fairly extroverted and loosened up - very informal and sleeves-rolled-up. You'll have to excuse yourself out of a conversation, else you'll be left talking to them the whole day and not have any time left to sightsee.
Speaking as an outsider who only observed things for 10 odd days, I felt that there's still a decent amount of racial segregation at play in SA.
While many lower-paying jobs are almost exclusively held by blacks and the colours thanks to the country's history of institutionalised racism, Blacks and Coloured peoples can now also be commonly seen in upscale areas as guests and visitors. However, the majority of patrons in these locations appeared to be white and Afrikaans speaking. I also only ever saw one mixed group - a white lady entertaining a black man and his daughter at a Cape Town waterfront restaurant where I was having dinner.
I did share a few drinks with Joburg-based white couples at my safari lodge, and on the whole, they didn't feel inherently racist. They in fact remembered the Mandela and Mbeki days with pride, and felt that most of the crime in South Africa was thanks to the corruption in the African National Congress (they were all praises for the opposition who holds sway in the Cape) and immigrants from neighbouring countries - they rather trusted Black South Africans for everyday affairs. At my Cape Town hotel, meanwhile, I met a few black businessmen and politicians at the pool and gym, and they told me similar things - that the ANC was corrupt, immigrants are to blame for crime etc, and didn't really have any strong opinions about whites. These experiences contrasted greatly with my conversation with a white Afrikaner pensioner in my Zanzibar hotel ten years ago, who was spewing hate against black crime after two whiskeys.
Since I'm Indian, I was often mistaken for a local - everybody (regardless of their race) would be taken aback when they heard my accent and learnt I was actually not South African (which has a large South Asian origin community) or even African (many South Asian origin peoples in eastern Africa and Mauritius especially). This spoke volumes to me - in the UK, where I studied and which now has an Indian-origin PM and a hugely visible South Asian diaspora, people would still ask me 'what country are you from?' on appearance alone. It really did emphasize how SA was more of a rainbow nation than just a slogan.
What did I like?
Practically everything, even Joburg. The safari experience was better than I expected, Cape Town was breathtaking, and Franschhoek became my favourite little town in the world. Also loved the food and the wine, and loved meeting and chatting with the locals. Of all the countries I've visited, SA is the one I'm surest about wanting to return to - and I'm not trying to be diplomatic - I honestly felt like I need more time here.
What didn't I like?
I disliked how such a great country with excellent basic infrastructure is being mismanaged. EVERYONE I spoke to was complaining about how corruption killed the country's power supply system and railways and is now threatening other aspects of life. None of these directly or visibly impacted my travels, but I would've liked being able to take a train instead of flights or not spend a premium to stay at places that had generators.
Anything I'd change?
While Joburg turned out to be a pleasant place, had I the option, I'd have skipped it to spend more time in Cape Town. I'd also spend a few more days in Franschhoek and around - the area turned out to be my favourite. Now that I've also had a lay of the land, I'm more confident about self-driving next time I visit. Also, I only realised how convenient it is to travel from SA to neighbouring countries, and would like to latch on visits to the Namibian desert, Botswana's game parks, the Victoria Falls on the Zambia-Zimbabwe border, and the beaches of Mozambique alongside a return to SA.
I realise I could have managed some things better on this trip, but bottom line is that I enjoyed it, and that this is not a 'who had the best trip' competition. I'm just sharing my positive experience of South Africa in the hope that it encourages others to properly and safely plan a trip to the place instead of avoiding it out of second-hand-scares.
Happy to take any follow ups in the comments :)
