Does it feel like you and your bae are from different planets? Well, opposites attract, just like in the new Securex Active Hygiene Soap. Meet the three couples who took the ultimate yin & yang quiz.
WINNERS: NALEDI TEMA (26) AND KATLEGO MFOLO (27)
“We are definite opposites. He likes rock, I despise it. I love my house music, which he doesn’t get but ultimately, we both get to learn from each other’s favourite music genres. I’m a health freak while he prefers to have amagwinya and atchaar for breakfast, accompanied by a whole lot of sweets. Our food preferences have taught us the importance of balance and compromise as we always try to meet each other's needs when ordering food. He doesn’t consume alcohol at all, while I enjoy the occasional glass of wine or champagne — how convenient because I always have a designated driver [chuckles]! Our viewpoints on life and everything else in between are so different — he’s more of a straight talker while I’m always nursing people’s feelings. In some weird and wonderful way, I’m learning to be tougher and him a little softer. Should we win, we will put the money towards paying off the R26 000 balance for our Egypt holiday this October. The purpose of the trip is to celebrate our birthdays — mine is on 19 October, and his on the 20th. He’s a year older than me but once a year on the 19th of October, we get to be the same age [chuckles]! Winning this competition will truly be one of the best birthday gifts ever!”
BUYISIWE NJOKO (30) AND LEBOHANG MORE (33)
“If you were to put us in two separate rooms and task us with drawing shapes, they would without a shadow of doubt be different. I'm more likely to draw a circle, and I'm quite certain that he'd opt for a square. Like a circle, I take things easy and always trust that I'll end up where I started. He on the other hand, is precise and calculative like a square. He doesn’t mind exploring various options to get to the bottom of anything. If we win, we’ll definitely inject some of the money into our business. We can’t remember when last we were on holiday so we would also go on a weekend getaway with our one-year-old son. Life, after all, is about creating beautiful memories.”
ALDO DISTAFANO (46) AND PRISCILLA DOLAMO (36)
“We are a yin and yang couple, but our love is strong regardless of our differences. Aldo’s spiritual philosophies exist somewhere between Hinduism and Rastafarianism. I’m from a Christian background, but I’m more spiritual than religious which makes our connection effortless. This is how we would spend the prize money: Firstly, we would donate R1000 worth of sanitary pads to the non-profit organisation, Sponsor An African Child and another R1000 to Spark Bramley’s Sanitary Towel Drive. With the rest of the money, we’d like to celebrate our love with our blended family by doing something out of the ordinary.”
