MEANWHILE OOM HAD TO GO TO THE WORLD URBAN FORUM IN KUALA LUMPUR IN MALAYSIA.
He arranged for one of the twins to come along and learn about SDI and also help with setting up, managing and taking down SDI’s very impressive booth at the forum.
It was decided that Morgs would be the lucky one, because he was the older twin since he was the first to be born. A few months later Ndebele women in Bulawayo laughed at us when we told them this. Wasn’t it obvious that Gabba was the older twin, because he was higher in the womb and therefore the first to be conceived?
Here are some memories from Malaysia
AND THEN OPPORTUNITY CAME KNOCKING AT GABBA’S DOOR.
Oom also needed to travel to Brazil to help strategize an expansion of SDI into the rest of Latin America.
Given his love for sports Gabba was clearly very happy that he had been considered the younger twin.
In addition to the excitement of going to Brazil he had his aunt Rozzie come along as his partner in fun.
This meant that we all played as hard as we worked – which is par for the course in Brasil. The moments away from work, however, will be remembered for a lifetime thanks to Roz and Joelie’s close friends, the Teixeira Family.
The bar was set very high. Jockin and Sheela in India and now the Teixeira family in Brazil.
We were on the path to experiencing different countries through the lives of close friends - old and new
