Oom Neil van der Wat, father to 4 beautiful and loving daughters who keeps himself busy in the world of construction. Eldest sister Nadine, married to Jaco with their two little kids, Erwee & Gerda. Jaco is a Mechanical Engineer and Nadine an Industrial Engineer. Then there's Seline, second eldest daughter, an Industrial Engineer by day and a Masterchef by HEART. She took 3rd place in Masterchef SA in 2013 and established Es. by Seline. She later also released a world class Cookbook, TWO, together with younger sister, Leandri, who took 2nd place in Masterchef in 2013. Seline is married to Jaco (also) and Jaco is a cinematographer. Leandri also completed her Masters degree in Chemistry. These three loving sisters are elder sisters to Nelia, she is currently completing her Matric year at St Marys.
On paper that's quite impressive right? But what I love about this family most is their togetherness as a family, they're really tight and such a good example of family. They all bring their own uniqueness and individuality to the party and that with acceptance and love, that's a winning recipe (other than all the other recipes in their Cookbook, TWO).
I've been on a journey with this family from Nadine's baby shower and since, Gerda has been born, Seline got married, they released a cookbook and they're all blossoming into these amazing people. They're just as humble as the first time I met them and it's such a pleasure crossing paths again and I hope to do so with every next big event in the van der Wat families' lives.
