EVENTS IN NAIROBI

WHO SAID STREET ART IS DEAD?!Β 

Never have I come across such a raw and artistic display drawn from ones figment of imagination as this one- truly the mind is a powerful thing. 



It’s unlike me to stop and admire activities in town, especially midtown where all the pickpocket’s and idlers seem to lurk. (As much as some people may term this a stereotype or propaganda, those whose phones have been snatched can attest to it). On this particular occasion, the colorful displays hanging gallantly on a metal mesh backdrop caught my eye; i had to go see for myself. 

A cheerful young lady by the name Wambui approached me and was more than eager to answer my queries, which I had plenty of lol After a considerably lengthy chat with her I got to learn that she was an aspiring fashion photographer… let me spare you the mushy mushy bit and just say that I was impressed.
Now let me tell you about this amazing project called ‘My Maasai’ through their pictures, they invoked so many emotions in me that I didn’t know even existed πŸ˜„ For a moment I even contemplated joining the photography bandwagon ~a tiny tiny moment~ 
If anyone will be interested in the full length stories behind these photos kindly do check out their website below.I simply didn’t want to overshadow the purpose by going into too much detail. 

As for the students at De-capture, thanks for inspiring me πŸ‘πŸΎ and for sharing your talent with Nairobi- more so the World. You guys are amazing!! 

Love and love

Weekend Discovery: Picazzo

By show of hands; how many of you like Italian food? Personally I’m not crazyy about it though i do admire their attention to detail when it comes to bringing out flavors. However, i find the mixture of ingredients a bit overwhelming, say a boiled egg in the middle of a pizza 😁 (yap!!) 

So i was out on Saturday with a friend of mine at a mall and we decided to go for sundowners, we quickly skimmed through the restaurants within the vicinity and settled on this one. It’s so easy to see why 😍😍

When my friend went to the washroom I decided to play him and instead of getting alcoholic drinks i got us juice πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ –should have seen his face when he tried it-  They turned out to be pretty good! They even threw in a few bitings as we waited for our drinks to be served. 

Piccazo is a beautiful and intimate place especially for family dinners and dates. The ambiance was all sorts of amazing and not forgetting the impacable service from the staff. I definitely recommend it πŸ‘ŒπŸ½Shall visit them again soon and do a menu review. 

Here are a few pictures i took at Piccazo, which is located at the hub Karen. 

Comment below and let me know how your weekend was . 😊

LET US HONOUR OUR YOUTH

Let us honor the youth of our seeds, 

Let us honor the fruits of our youth;

Let us honor our youth through
 

        Spotlighting their presence, 

        Spotlighting their participation, 

       Spotlighting their achievements,

Let us honor our youth through 

            song

            Worship, 

             praise, 

            award,

            And love;

Let us honor ourselves through
Honoring our young;

Let us nourish the youth of our seeds; 

Let us nourish their tiny blossoms and 

Ripening fruits to sound maturity, 

That we may see them shine for us
 

           And themselves.

MOCA LOCAΒ 

Hi loves, 

How is the second week of January going for you? Personally I’m stocked. Between early morning classes, gym and volunteer work within school i feel overwhelmed πŸ˜… I’m just praying that time flies and i get over with this semester. 

This past Sunday a friend and I decided to go watch Star Wars: Rogue One at the theater, we got there a bit late therefore had to wait for the next showtime which was in like 2 hours. To kill time we decided to chill at this cosy cafe inside the mall called Moca Loca. 

The cafe has a rustic feel to it which makes it stand out. Their menu also had a good range, from pastries to breakfast dishes. I opted to try the fish fingers as it’s a light snack. They didn’t disappoint πŸ‘ŒπŸ½πŸ˜Š

The fish fingers came with a side dip of mayonnaise which was soo good
We also tried their cocktails, i had a Cosmopolitan which was tasty and my pal had a Flaming Russian

I’ll definitely be going back to this cafe, especially after a long day at Uni 😁 

LOCATION: Garden City Mall, Third Floor (Nairobi)

NEW YEAR, Same Appettite

Happy New year loves!! How i missed you all so much. My reading list was rather empty lol I hope that the holiday season was fantastic? Mine sure was. How did you all usher in 2017? I’d love to know. Comment below πŸ˜ŠπŸŽ‰πŸŽˆ

So 4th January was my younger sisters birthday and we decided to take her out for a simple family lunch. We went to Westgate mall (Nairobi) where we discovered the cutest noodle bar. Noodle bars are rather a new thing in Nairobi. This is the cities first Noodle bar & South East Asian ‘street food ‘ outlet …

I can never have enough of Asian food. I’ve sampled alot of Asian dishes in Nairobi but this noodle bar tops πŸ‘ŒπŸ½πŸ‘ŒπŸ½I’ll definitely be going back for more 

The prices range from around 3$ to 9$. They also have a Build It Yourself section where you get to choose your own base, vegetables and sauce. 

OhCha opens 11am to Midnight everyday.

My Knack for Interior Decor

Hi loves, how are you all doing? So yesterday my country (Kenya πŸ‡°πŸ‡ͺ ) celebrated independence day. (Precisely 53 years since we got liberated from British rule). I really wasn’t up to much celebrating as the weather was horrible, it rained for most parts of the day. 

For the Kenyan’s in the diaspora I’d love to know what you guys we’re up to on Jamuhuri day? πŸ˜€

Today i wanted to do a post on something that I’m passionate about,but have never had the time to pursue;Interior Designing.Frankly one of the reasons why I haven’t pursued it is because it’s not such a lucrative business in my country, further more there aren’t any reputable institutions offering it as a course. For me to able to practice I’d have to invest and decor my own home and that’s too costly for a University student πŸ˜…πŸ˜… 
For now, I’ll stick to admiring stuff online. Here are some of my favorite picks from Pinterest. 


Lots of love

THAILAND πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡­Β 

Bangkok welcomes more visitors than any other city in the world and it doesn’t take long to realise why. It is also know as the City of Angels or the Venice of the East.

This city is vibrant and full of life. Some of the people themselves are like walking pieces of art with their brightly colored hair. Such a beautiful sight to behold. 

It thrills with energy, and the sightseeing, shopping, and eating possibilities are so vast that you’ll have little time to rest. When you do find a moment, though, you can pamper yourself at spas, skyline-view bars, luxurious hotels, and excellent restaurants.
WHEN TO GO 

From late October to late February, when Bangkok is at its coolest (85Β°F) and driest, is the best time to visit. By April the humidity and heat create a sticky stew that lasts until the rains begin in late June.


How cool is this open bar?!
