“Eat Mielies Weird Illustration

Kim is a South African living in Amsterdam. The name “Eat Mielies” was derived from one of Kim’s favourite South African words (Mielies = corn on the cob) as she feels a small amount of home sickness mixed with joy whenever she thinks of her mother calling “Who wants a mielie?” at the dinner table, and specifically about the time when her mother pretended to chuck a mielie across the table at somebody and accidentally smashed her new Christmas Wine Glass in the process.
