“Beautiful and graceful, varied and enchanting, small but approachable, butterflies lead you to the sunny side of life.  And everyone deserves a little sunshine.” ~Jeffrey Glassberg

♥♥  “…and everyone deserves a little sunshine.” a typical South African Township staple with a touch of Italian influences that actually play a big role in style and class influences on Township lifestyles..I chose to bring a little sunshine on a spring day to our renowned spring/summer dish. Umphokoqo namasi! (pap en sourmelk)…with a touch of fragrant infusions from citrus|coconut|coriander…and very flamboyant dressings…



4Roomed Founder’s Enchanted Journey!

Abigail Mbalo| Founder & Creative Director


My name is Abigail Mbalo founder and creative director of 4Roomed eKasi Culture, a Dental Technologist, artist, home decor and design creative, self taught cook & recipe developer, self taught photographer.

I’d like to take you on a journey of self determination, self motivation, self empowerment & self belief…..and share with you how these attributes helped me unleash my best potential on this earth.

Most of my drive stems from constantly reflecting on my upbringing…reflecting on my South African roots!

On this blog I shall share insights under the following sub-headings;

***Life of a butterfly – how this gracious little creature’s life became my inspiration, my muse…

***In the name of “Research”- thoughts and creative ideas on my passion for art,home decor, travels and GLORIOUS food!

***South African 4Roomed home memoirs – yeah! what makes us who we are now, the South African we are today.Insights and creative ideas from our past,present…..and the future!

Please keep an eye for motivating, inspiring, informative insight and ideas that stem from a South African who had chosen to extract from the past demise only the good memories that are deemed to contribute in making today a better day, but not forgetting how the past managed to shape us to who we are or who we choose to be today.
