At the Wokini Market

The ‘closing event’ of the Napier Patatfees (Napier Sweet Potato Festival) was the art-, craft- and food market at Wokini; a few kilometers out of Napier.

‘Made in Stanford’: Stick Hard

_DSC2235_tonemapped‘Made in Stanford’ by Veldparm and designated for the Afrikaner man: ‘Stokstyf’

Translated for the non Afrikaans speaking people: ‘Stokstyf in die onderlyf’ means ‘Stick Hard in the lower body’.
The package also mentions: ‘Do you seek an additional boost between the sheets’; ‘Erection and libido capsules for men’.

And there seems to be a huge market for it: “One wholesaler orders average 10,000 packages weekly”, says the owner of Veldparm. Each package contains 3 capsules. The difference with Viagra capsules is that the ingredients of ‘Stokstyf’ capsules are natural extracts of herbs without any chemical addition.

Well, one can say a lot about our village but don’t say that there is no entrepreneurship … 🙂 🙂 🙂

P.S. Veldparm has also simular ‘enhancement’ products for women. The products are nationwide available in diverse outlets including pharmacists.

The Fresh Market

Every Saturday morning we go to the fresh market in the village. Fresh from the land and the oven; from lettuce and coriander to baklava and springbok pie. Yummie. And this is how some people walk home….
