My fifteen minutes.

Just a few minutes after the official launch of our new bank notes {6 November}, I made my way to our ATM at work to draw a few Rand for my daily early morning coffee...and too my surprise, out popped a brand new R20 note.

It was like winning the lottery...I proudly waved my new notes to anyone who would look. It was pretty cool to see how excited everyone was to see them...

In my excitement, I quickly took a photo, and posted it to Instagram and to Twitter. And it wasn't long...till I started receiving a few weird messages via twitter, something to do with my photo. But I kinda just fobbed it off. Until the BFF, sent me a Whatsapp, asking me if I knew that my photo was on the front page on News24 {PS she recognised my nail polish first :-)}
How awesome is that? Pretty darn cool hey?

My very own 15 minutes of fame...kinda :-)



PS. and how super cool are our new bank notes?

So exciting! I don't know what the issue is with the new money - people will ALWAYS find something to whine about, but I LOVE the new money. I also wave it at everyone I see!
