NOU GAAN ONS BRAAI
After much anticipation, the Nou Gaan Ons Braai Kwikbraai has arrived and can be bought online at www.ngobraai.com – just in time for Christmas shopping! “It’s a remarkable little contraption and so easy to put together and take apart; it’s ideal for people on the run or those with only small spaces to braai,” says Barry.
With the constant threat of postal strikes, a reliable courier company has been appointed to help with deliveries so be sure to consider the door-to-door delivery option when placing your order online.
“I love the NGOBraai brand and am constantly looking for new items to add to the range,” says Barry. Initially, just Tshirts were avaialbe, but now the range includes braai accessories like tongs, stainless steel braais and marinades as well as caps, ladies and children’s clothing!
With shows in Hong Kong, Singapore, Macau, Australia and New Zealand, September was a crazy month for Barry. The month long tour followed a tour of the UK and preceded the busy corporate season in South Africa. “I enjoy working overseas but it’s always good to be back home,” says Barry who received rave reviews during the tour.
