Following Fatal1ty around while he prepared for the finals at the rAge event, I found him amongst the "Bring your own "(BYO) PC gamers. Sitting right next to him was a young chap with a grin on his face from ear to ear. This young guy was thrilled to be sitting next to his idol.
The young mans name was Aries Shomalistos, who promptly phoned his mom to tell her the good news. She, not believing it was THE "Fatal1ty", asked to speak to him. Of course Mrs. Shomalistos' surprise was compounded when Jonathan's American voice kindly accepted her dinner invitation. Since my timing was perfect, I was able to go along for the ride.
Surprise invitation- Hospitality second to none!
Arriving at the Shomalistas house was something akin to going to a five star hotel. This was the kind of home you expect to find in Garden & Home magazine. It was solid, well protected, and exquisitely designed, decorated and kept. The family consisted of 3 boys; Harry the oldest, studying at university, Alex the middle child who was always quick to share his opinion, and Aries, the youngest at 12 years old was all smiles and happiness.
The parents, Mr Mike and Gina Shomalistos were extremely generous and kind, and they gave us such a sterling braai (Barbeque to Philistines outside South Africa) unequalled in recent history. The salad matched anything that could come out of the Mediterranean, and the T-Bone steaks were almost 1kg a piece!!
Both Fatal1ty and I having been on the road for some time, where completely captivated with this excellent spread, and dined literally until we nearly burst. Then to top it off, out came the ice cream and chocolate sauce. After squeezing in the last few mouthfuls, Jonathan accepted a challenge from the three eager boys, who by now had had enough of waiting.
