#MyKulcha: My COLOURED-ful World

 

 

Seeing that it is culture shock week I thought I'd share some of my traditions. 

Being coloured is not just my race but it's also a big part of who I am and I am so proud of it. 

 

One thing I love about my culture is the way we speak. A lot of people refer to it as the wrong way to speak but I couldn't care less. It's unique to us and the language of my closest family and friends and I wouldn't change it for the world. 

Just because we speak a certain way does not mean we aren't intellegent and smart people.

I can speak european english and I can speak Afrikaans but I feel at home and most confidant speaking Afrikaaps.  

 

"As djy nie wietie nou wiet djy"!

 

 

The other thing that I really adore is the FOOD!!!

Yes,in our culture food plays a big part just like any other culture but it's the type of food and the way in which it is prepared that gets me all excited.

For example : 

- A Smoortjie: A pan fried smorgasbord of deliciousness!

- Pickled Fish: A favourite during Easter time 

- Gatsby: The Cape Town take on a sub sandwich, filled with anything and everything (but most importantly fried chips!) 

 

And the people...

I love their passion , their drive and their energy. 

We are not lazy , we work just as hard as any other person do. I do not care what people might say about our, MY culture...I am proud of who and what I am. 

 

Remember, be proud of who you are because it sustains you for your journey to come. 

 

I am proud...Are you? Let me know what makes you proud of YOUR Culture in the Comments below!
