Hanging with: Sydney Matlhaku

2010-03-05 16:38

 His day job ... Well I don’t have a day job. I have tons of things that I do every day that I love. I think that when you do things you love, it’s never work. I’m a freelance photographer, radio DJ and I teach ­advanced driving courses. Oh! and of course I am one of the hosts of Car Quest, which I love.

On having a takkie fetish ... I own about 58 pairs of takkies . I have even been to London just for the sake of buying a new pair of takkies, but I always have problems finding the right pair because my right foot is bigger than my left.

Sesame Street ... I absolutely love Sesame Street. I think it is ­hilarious and some of the jokes on that show are meant for adults not kids.

On not having a car ... Can you believe that I don’t have a car at the moment? Yes, I know I’m a presenter of a car show but I don’t have a car at the moment. I have a bike. I have had a lot of great cars in my lifetime like Alfa 145, BMW 325 and a very souped-up Honda Civic VTEC.

The ultimate car to have ... The Lotus Evora is coming out soon and I reckon it is up there with the Land Rover, BMW X6 and most definitely the M3.

On being jealous of ?... Michael Schumacher – now he has the best job in the world and he works for less than 10 seconds a day.

Being a businessman ... I am starting a driving school with my buddy Gugu Zulu and we will be teaching people how to drive motorbikes and assisting them in making the transition between driving a car to riding a bike.

My new passion ... I am learning to golf, or shall I say dig graves! My hands are full of blisters thanks to my new passion and my poor golf clubs are being abused by me.

My ultimate date?... Women think that there are things such as ultimate dates, men think there are ultimate women to take on dates.
Growing up with only ­women ... I’ve grown up with four sisters and let me tell you it wasn’t easy. Women run the household. Enough said.
On going on blind dates ... I would never go on a blind date. That’s like starting a date with a blank piece of paper. I’ve heard some real horror stories about blind dates.
