Beauty Slap

The memory is stuck with me. I was meeting my cousin for some Easter kuchafua. I woke up late on that Sunday. I did not even make an effort to go to church. Mum was not pleased but she did not say anything. I think she has reached that point where she would rather pray [...]

Charity Luxuries

Charity is not a luxury. Yet it is. It shouldn’t be an entitlement. Yet many people view it as such. I am not rubbishing charity and charitable acts. Quite the opposite. My friends and I run an initiative to make CBO’s more visible online. This would enable well-wishers and donors to give to the right [...]

Who are we?

At 12:00 noon, I turned again in a strange bed. Comfortable but strange. I had walked into my hotel room at around 4:00 am. Sober but exhausted. The events of the previous night came tumbling into my brain. Apart from the occasional glass of wine I rarely imbibe. The previous night was no different. We [...]

He’s fancy

I miss my fancy hat. But the manager at my hotel more than covers for my fancy hat. He is fancy. He has this fancy hairstyle that I cannot achieve even when I rock bantu knot outs. His edges are laid smoothly. Licked back like a new born baby. Ecostyler gel has nothing on him. [...]

Scattered Brains

I haven’t written in a while. Wait no, I write every day. I haven’t updated my blog in a while. And I have good excuses. Let’s start with Hplylori, remember that. During that one week I felt like I may not wake up in morning when I went to bed. I woke up, I always [...]

No Shit

Tuesday evening. I had serious stomach cramping and loose stool. Wednesday morning. I made a long Facebook post about it. What else do you do when your ass has spent the better part of the night and morning on a cold porcelain? You make fun of it. Simply because you can. Around midday I went [...]

I am expecting

It was time for our monthly coffee date. I was meeting Mary and Jane later in day. We talked throughout the day and of course reconfirmed our date. At around 5:00pm Mary sent me a text to meet her at Jubilee Insurance Center. This is the building next to city hall. If you have never [...]

Food Courts

It is often not about the food. It is mostly about the company. There are people who can make a simple meal of githeri taste heavenly. And there are people you would rather stay home than share a share a meal at a five star eatery. On Saturday afternoon, I met with my cousin for [...]
