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 . 😊

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 😁

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.

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?!

Lets talk ArbourΒ 

Hi loves, i hope you’re all great. I bet the festival season has already started to kick in, its only 5 weeks to Christmas. Why does it sound so far away now that I wrote it down?! πŸ˜πŸŒ²β˜ƒοΈ 

Fun fact- I’ve never experienced snow! It’s on my bucket list though. 

So today I wanted to share a food post. This is currently my favorite restaurant in Nairobi. It was originally a home that got converted into a restaurant by the owners. 

I love their cosy outdoor picnic kinda seating, very good for large groups of people. The service is also impecable. 

I possibly cannot remember all the dishes name as this post is 10 days late!! πŸ˜…
Regardless, lots of love.

Taste of India at The Concord

Hi loves!! 

I hope you’re all doing great as we countdown to 2017. Amazing and scary at the same time how time flies right?! πŸŽ„πŸŽ„

On this blog i wanted to showcase one of my favorite cuisine; which is Indian. I cannot emphasize enough as to how much i loveee Indian food!! 😁😊

Honestly we could not even pronounce the names of the dishes, but loosely translated the rice dish was Biryani and the other dish was naan and butter chicken. (Ps naan is a type of flat bread)

The food was amazing. Would love to know what your favorite holiday dishes are? Feel free to comment

BIRTHDAY BLUESΒ 

Birthdays have always been special occasions in my family. My dad would go out of his way to make sure that his little girls had the best time. Our birthdays normally consisted of cake, drinks and food, and, that is a tradition that my sisters and i have carried on with 😊 

I’ve had two amazing birthdays in my adult years: one which this guy i was dating (now my ex, no names 😁)went out of his way to make sure i had a blast. This years is two.

I love people who go the extra mile, because I’m one of them myself. Im shamelessly selfless and therefore get easily hurt when i encounter selfish people. 

This year, this group of people that i spent my birthday with proved to me that genuine love does exist. It wasn’t about the gifts or venue, what hit home with me is the fact that they were more excited than i was πŸ˜‚πŸ˜ 

Here are a few pictures from the day. 
Ps. If you have people who stay in your life even when you have nothing to offer them, keep them!!
