A Post from the Friendly Robot
The last three weeks have been frikkin’ awesome for us @ Mooki, and the response from our fellow Glenwoodians (Glenwoodites?) and new BBF’s has been overwhelming to say the least. Big love to everyone who has supported us and been so positive about what we are doing here. Durban’s blogging community has been very kind to us and spread the word like peanut butter on toast.
We have settled into our routine now, and just to clarify for those of you who are not sure yet, our official hours at the moment are from 11am to 9pm from Monday to Saturday. We are closed on Sundays as it is apparently still illegal to work people to death. I checked, and it is……in case you were wondering. A few people have asked why we close at 9, and the simple answer is that we have neighbours upstairs from us and we want them to love us, so we don’t want to keep them up past thier beddy-bye time. nobody likes a grumpy pants neighbour.
We will, however, be closed this Tuesday for Women’s Day. I quite like women, in fact my wife is one, so Charisse and I decided to give my almost exclusively Girlie staff the day off. To further celebrate the day, we will be handing out free shots of chocolate-chilli-sake to all ladies dining with us on Monday night. Hell, in keeping with the spirit of things South East Asian, we will give you one (shooter, that is…) if you are a guy and just look a little bit soft or have Moobs or if you are secretly wearing your girlfriends underwear. We won’t even require you to prove it. That’s just how we roll.
There are a few new specials on the go, so have a look at our specials page regularly to keep up to date. The most notable is the Frozen Goji Berry and Lemon Yoghurt with the aforementioned Chocolate-Chilli-Sake shot. Goji Berries are supposed to be better for you than religion and yoga combined and have a zillion antioxidants in them. Yoghurt is good for your tummy. Chocolate and Chiili both pump your body full of endorphins (not to be confused with dolphins) and make you feel happy about life in general. The sake is just there to loosen your Goose a little. Honk Honk.
We will be launching the “Konichiwa Klan” soon, so get ready. Basically we are going to ask you guys to submit your funniest Haiku (Japanese style of poetry, look it up) on the blog, and then get everyone else to vote on which is their favourite each month. The winner will get a yet-to-be-determined prize which will probably be awesome as well as an official “Konichiwa Klan” T shirt designed by our very own friendly neighbourhood Ewok. We are still working on the logistics of this, so we will get back to you when we figure it out.
If you haven’t been to Mooki yet, then you really should do it soon.
Love you long time,
