    I would love to win the four set of tickets, of the Franschhoek Cap Classique & Champagne Festival. So that I can go with my family. We have never missed it. Every year we are always there. We always make sure we are there early so that we enjoy the premises and taste the different champagne. Surely, we do buy our favourites.

    Talk about the outfits we always go all out because black and white is so beautiful. The weather has always been great so we will always have our sun hats.

    Receiving this prize would be a pleasure, I would be really honoured.

  18. I would love to treat my sister who has recently put her life on hold to look after our mom who suffered a major stroke this year, my sister is one of those few selfless people.
