Birthday, dijo & good times


Here is to wishing Rhapsody’s Sebele a Happy first Birthday. The establishment turned one on Sunday May 22 and did so in style. Our dining experience with them was nothing short of amazing. Ebile I am gifting them with my patronage as I can easily understand why it is they can boast of having loyal customers, some of who made the move from the now closed APJ branch, which found a home at Sebele Centre Mall.

I do quite a bit of shopping at Sebele complex and often times see people having a meal or clinking mimosas at Rhapsody's on the patio seating. The exterior gives nothing away as the establishment is secluded in its own corner with ample parking space in the frontage. The stunning interior, simply put, is enchanting. The restaurant was one of the first to adopt strict COVID-19 protocols and this kept them going during a time where people were uncertain about dining out in uncertain times. Now with restrictions slightly loosened, its all systems go for a great dining experience. The spacious restaurant has utilised the layout very well with elegant decor, unique structures that include the Sushi Bar where one can watch their sushi being made, which is a very vibrant and engaging serving approach. Another striking feature has to be the black and gold enormous bar that's built both from the ceiling and the floor. The general ambiance is lively yet effortless, stylish yet relaxed. The hanging foliage and background music gave us a tropical feel. It’s a good space to be in.

Joan Richardson, events and marketing manager at Rhapsodys, arrived and scanned the room ensuring everything was in place, and as she made her way over, she greeted some of the already seated guests with a warm smile. This personal attention goes a long way in making patrons feel special. We got to chatting whilst our attentive server Gosego, brought us our menu to peruse while waiting on Head Chef Ngoni Gondo to bring out the dishes he had selected. As our visit unfolded, he also took us on a culinary journey of the variety of starters, mains and desserts. All the dishes they selected for our dining are found on the standard menu. His choices offered us an opportunity to review some of their bestsellers such as the Chicken Espetada, a more common dish, Grilled Calamari and Fragrant Rice as well as the multifaceted Chicken and Avocado Stack.

A woman’s right to choose: Or is it?

Here in Botswana, we have many single-parent households, mostly female-led, so what does that suggest? That some fathers choose to ditch the responsibility of caring for their children and leave them to the ones who carry them during pregnancy to do the heavy lifting.Of course, in other dynamics, there are instances where the father wants to keep the baby and the would-be mother does not want to, hence the saying ‘whose body is it anyway’.In...
