My US West Coast Trip

6 Jun

Hey Guys,

As promised here’s my account of my favourite moments on the Miller trip. Firstly, I gotta say; we live in a beautiful country with great people and great prospects. More than anything thats what this trip validated for me. BIG UP MZANSI, we proper got it good.

OK, now to the good stuff. We started off in LA, all excited to go to one of the hottest clubs in the city. And guess what?  I got sick!!! REALLY sick (I promise NO visuals). The doctor got called into my room, and it was a night in bed for me. The good news is that I got to watch some American television, which was a great learning experience. I picked up quiet a few things like; our ads are sooo much better, but the variety of television choices is beyond amazing. With the right formula, you can literally make anything a succesful TV show in America. Which really got me thinking…

The next day I woke up feeling fresh and ready to take off to San Francisco. What a beautiful city! Won’t say much, as the pix will tell the story. Oh and a girl got some mad shopping done!!!

VEGAS!!! As they say; “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas!” Well peeps, NOT with me. Here we stayed at the Cosmopolitan Hotel. Saying it was like Sun City on steriods is THE understatement of the century. Its just as beautiful.  Just MASSIVE. The rooms were big and gorgeous with amazing views of the city that never sleeps. Our pool deck was amazing, and everyone fabulously walks around in their bikinis & baggies. Everything you’ve ever seen, read or heard about Vegas, is…100% true x10. Its like new year’s eve everynight. We went to Tao night club, that owes its fame to the Kardashians. There were gorgeous girls, in skimpy lingerie, dancing all night on levels in cages. whilst the dance floor was packed to the rim with clubbers jamming to the hottest tunes. Thanx to Miller, we had the dopest VIP area, where the clutter never affected us.

We all couldn’t wait for the next morning as it was back to LA and brought us hours closer to the MTV Movie Awards. Russel Brand as host was hella funny. Seeing the simplicity of the stage and its dramatics being created by great lighting made me wish an SA production was there to witness. Side Note: the SAMAs were amazing, great stage, great production – not all our awards have that big a budget. This proved to me, that the same dramatics can be created on a smaller budget.

Seeing Amber Rose in real life, made me realize what a “thick” woman really is. This calls for a blog on its own…

Aight peeps. Check my pix for more deets ❤
