Brittany Reports on Ubutyebi Be-Ibhayi

www.MyPE.co.za:My
teenager daughter, Brittany (The Apprentice Longhair), has had her
vision of becoming a vet slightly clouded after learning that persons
in the ‘media’ get to go to events and launches where food is served.
Like ‘just’ teenagers the world over her daily routine is ruled by the
needs of her stomach. Over the last couple of months I have had the
pleasure of her company at a number of events, the most recent being
the opening of the Ubutyebi Be-Ibhayi memory box at the Red
Location Museum
.

The purpose of this exhibition in the Red Location museum is to present
an overview of the status of heritage in the Nelson Mandela Bay Metro
and to demonstrate what steps the Metro is taking to ensure that all
conservation worthy resources are identified, recorded, protected and
managed correctly.

The following report is
by Brittany:

“On the 24 June I, the Apprentice Longhair, accompanied Mr MyPE
to the Ubutyebi Be-Ibhayi Treasures of Nelson Mandela Bay opening at
the Red Location museum. My job was to carry Mr MyPE’s camera bag and
act as his ‘scribe’. My payment for this extremely important task of
‘scribe’ and chief bag carrier is made in Astro’s. That wasn’t
necessary for this opening, though. I found the Red Location Museum
amazing, particularly the Vuyisili Mini Memory box. I
immediately added the Red Location Museum to my to do list for when my
Aunt comes to PE in the last week of the June/July school holidays.

Red Location Museum Saint Georges Park ConservatoryAnother specific
memory box that I liked was a ‘model’ of what a Red Location shack
looked like inside, bed and all. But these two memory boxes were not
what we were there for. We were there for the opening of a new memory
box, containing pictures of old buildings, our heritage. Before we saw
the memory box there was a speech done by Rory Riordan. During this
speech Mr MyPE and I were standing in front of a table filled with
food. I, being very hungry couldn’t wait to start eating. I did listen
to the speech, though, and found it very interesting.

Soon the speech was over and we were allowed to start eating, but first
we went to see the new memory box. Finding that it was slightly
overcrowded, Mr MyPE and I went back to get something to eat. I only
eat chicken, fish and of course veggies was very happy to see that
there were chicken drumsticks, which were simply delicious. I also
enjoyed the fish cakes, even though I don’t really like fish. But the
best out of all of the was the Kiwi fruit. I had never tried it before
and I admit it did not look very appetizing. If I had a chance I would
have finished all of the kiwi fruit, but alas the chance did not arise.
The Paw-paw was very good too, also being one of my new and amazing
discoveries. Of course I cannot leave out the yummy strawberries, which
I had tasted before.

So all in all the opening of the new Ubutyebi Be-Ibhayi memory box was
very enjoyable, especially the food.”
