Saturday was a busy day for us, we were scheduled to attend two events happening simultaneously, we opted to split our time in half. We spent some time at the Glamour Power Couples and some to the other event. The Glamour Power Couples took place at Lacuna Bar at the Maslow Hotel. Couples such as Nandi and Zakes Madida, Gert Johan Coetzee, Olwethu and Neo Leshabane as well as Melinda Bam with her husband Adriaan Bergh shared their stories on how they became who they are. They spoke of how they met, their first kisses over-coming and conquering conflicts.
The Couples talks were chaired by Glamour Magazines Editor in Chief, Asanda Sizani. Just by the way, is Sanda still with Lulo Cafe or they’re still down-playing their romance?

Gert on the couch talking about his love. Gert and his partner have been together for 14 years now. They are married. they started going out when Gert was 16.
Melinda and Adriaan on the other hand met via fate. Adriaan fell-head-over-hills the very first time he saw Mel and he told himself that one day Melinda will be his wife. Years went on Melinda was happily involved with someone else, but Adriaan never deterred. He told himself that Melinda will be his and as fate would have it, they found each other.
