Funtastic Friday!

Thank God It’s Friday.

It’s taken a while for this day to come … 5 days have never looked longer.

I’m Feeling

Woohoo! If there’s a feeling like that, I can’t really explain it.

I crave or want or need

A serious retail therapy … clothes, shoes and uumm, many other unnecessary things!

This weekend

I plan to just relax … whatever that entails! Will go for Sauti Sol first as a starter and finish with the Red Touch Rugby Tournament on Sunday. Lets see how it goes! In the middle there should be work , shopping and probably books *notice the probability*… lol

Song of the week

Kanye West – All of the Lights ft Rihana, Kid Cudi

Kanye kinda freaks me out with all his weird videos. I can’t watch them confidently, I start doubting myself … hehe they look evil’ish, but this one was a PLUS … I can listen to it all day!

I wonder

Why Marylin Monroe ever thought less of herself ?  She was just too brilliant and beautiful. Perfect example for *beauty and brains*. And that’s why my quote of the week is by her!


“This life is what you make it. Not matter what, you’re going to mess up sometimes, it’s a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you’re going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends – they’ll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything – they’re your true best friends. Don’t let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they’ll come and go too. And babe, I hate to say it, most of them – actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can’t give up because if you give up, you’ll never find your soul mate. You’ll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn’t mean you’re gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don’t, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.” ~ Marilyn Monroe

HAVE A FUNTASTIC FRIDAY! Like literally “Have Fun” , but also keep safe!

Keeping Up With Kawi

This last two weeks have been dramatic in an interesting way. Meaning that as much as they can be frustrating, all I could do is just curse a bit *Oh Sweet* and laugh about it.

Starting from my electricity switch board (or what is it called?) melting away, I mean I have never seen that before. I was smelling plastic from far away but all my sockets were intact so being a girl, I never thought the source could be the switch board, so I just kinda ignored. The next thing I know, lights are flickering, my sockets are not powering devices and I’m like uuummm WTH? When I look at my neighbors electricity, everything looks intact. And when it all finally gave in, and I was in pitch darkness, with no candles, thank God for the torch functionality in Nokia E63’s that was very thoughtful…lol. So as usual, I run to my land lord and they came to check wassup, my wires were melted, yeah the guy who connected the wires did some shoddy job….so I was wondering, what if I fried in the shower or something…tsk! Anyhow, that was sorted but it made me miss my dad so much, things that make me want to run back home.

Then comes the weekend, a carpenter with whom I had placed an order 3weeks ago is still giving me excuses as to why he cannot deliver…he started with “the wood is wet so I cannot varnish”, “we haven’t finished painting…please note that my seat is wood so, I doubt there’s any painting being done”, then the final stretch was where he makes me wait for him as he says he’s in traffic for a WHOLE DAY…and that’s the point where I cracked. You don’t mess up with people’s time. So he says he lied to me because I wanted to be lied to … really Mr. Capenter? Oh yeah, this week he went for a funeral…another excuse? So I’m still waiting, but I went and took something from his shop worth the deposit I paid, so that we exchange when he delivers *sigh*. Lesson learnt – Never pay deposit to a capenter, and buy what you see not what they promise to deliver. I’m thinking of how to punish him a bit when he brings the stuff *evil grin*

To add icing to the cake, the cake in this case being the previous weeks escapades, on Monday morning, I had planned how I’m gonna be the earliest to work … feeling all freshened up. So I wake up, prepare for the day and  I now want to head out, and the door would just not open … push, pull … nothing! It was stuck and there’s no way I was going to open it. Thank God for phones … or else, I don’t know! So I called my landlords kid and I’m like I’m stuck in the house, come help me out. That was just hilarious because she was as confused as I was, so she called the small brother who came and sorted me out. He basically removed hinges..bleh bleh bleh, and viola! Door open, then the fundi comes like  30mins later and he’d said he’ll be there in a moment because he was at the gate, then starts looking at the damage (there was no damage) or is it for the root of the problem with maswali mengi “too many questions”, so irritating!

Did you realize all my escapades fall back on fundi’s. The electrician, the carpenter and now the fixer (I don’t know what to call him…lol). They’re all such pathological liars … like really! If you have a good one keep them and recommend them to people like us. Speaking of which, it got me thinking that the man who marries me needs to be a Mr.Fix It … eeeh! even if it’s just pretending to fix stuff then later call the external parties to do the actual fixing.

I hope now my dramatic escapade phase is over because that was just like a streak of bad luck! But if they come, it should be fun and not stressing.

Have a Super Lovely and Drama Free Weekend!

Everything … Love!

Disclaimer : Fully taking advantage of Valentines Day to write about LOVE. In summary, everything is mushy’ish … haha NOT!

NEVER! Now that the rain has decided it’s gonna come down with vengeance *cats & dogs*, if it was men, it would’ve been better since it’s Valentines Day…mmhh! So I’m forced to work late and with that the I have a reason to write up something. I have no idea which one I like between the sun and rain, but for sure it ain’t the rain … as much as I want plant’s to grow and the dam to be filled with water so that KPLC doesn’t act a fool, but why doesn’t it just rain only on those portions where they need it most.

Anyhow that’s besides the point … It’s VALENTINES DAY to all my loved ones, I have probably told you “I love you” every time, if I haven’t maybe I’m too shy (don’t want to break hearts).

I’m not a firm believer of valentines day, I’ve never gotten what all the hype is about … I’m big about birthday’s and Christmas … those are the days I believe one should be showered with gifts and all the love messages…yeah! So for today, “A kiss upon the hand of someone you truly love, is more beautiful, and more valuable than any diamond or gem could ever be.”

HOWEVER, I’m a firm believer of love by all means. I don’t fear loving, if anything I love it, and I enjoy it while it lasts.

“We all want to fall in love. Why? Because that experience makes us feel completely alive. Where every sense is heightened, every emotion is magnified, our everyday reality is shattered and we are flying into the heavens. It may only last a moment, and hour, an afternoon. But that doesn’t diminish its value. Because we are left with memories that we treasure for the rest of our lives.” ~ Unknown

Love leads to heart-breaks (that’s the sad part), but sometimes it’s about taking that risk and finding out where it’ll lead you, it could be your happy place, for some it actually is, if not all. If anything, I’m the kind of person who believes that if you have love, you are your happiest, you can have all the material things, but without love they are somewhat meaningless. Loneliness is a monster that eats you up, no matter how much you have.

So, if an opportunity arises, love. If it doesn’t work out, love again. Just never tire loving. Love everyday of  the year, treat the people you love well all year. My definition of love will always be come from 1st Corinthians 13:4-13

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Ahem! So incase you’d just forgotten what it’s all about, there goes. If you find yourself going against any of the above … uumm *bursts your bubble* you just ain’t in love, maybe you’re in like … or something of that sort.


“Love is friendship, friendship is love. If love fails, friendship should remain. For friendship is the foundation of love” ~ Unknown

“Somewhere there’s someone who dreams of your smile, And finds in your presence that life is worth while, So when you are lonely, remember it’s true: Somebody, somewhere is thinking of you.” ~ Unknown


“If their smile warms your heart, embrace eases you, and kiss distills all wrong done to man, then you know that you have found true love.” ~Unknown (this goes to that certain someone!)

Happy Valentines again and if you had promised your loved one (especially a girl) a date … *muhahaha*. The rain shouldn’t be a barrier. (Advice from a girl). HAVE FUN and make sure you LAUGH a lot!

Friday *Crafty* Musings!

Crafty ->Skillful in underhand schemes; cunning; deceitful *Honest*; ingenious; dexterous.

Crafty is me today, to be honest I have no idea what I want as per now, but I’m sure my very brilliant mind is scheming something without my knowledge … I have a certain urge for something and I can not place my finger on it. It’s a very disturbing feeling by the way.

Anyhow, It’s Friday *woohoo* … that could qualify as a reason to be happy and uneasy. It’s valentines weekend and I’m not a valentines person … ok, that’s a lie … just because I don’t have any valentines mate. I’ll probably hog on my friends and be a third wheel, that’s if I am invited or allowed. Otherwise I’ll resort to working late or going home and watching series or movies … nah! doing constructive things like go to the ihub now that I got Green Membership.

How could I forget to mention that, I got into the ihub *excited galore*, I used to admire from a far but now I’m a greenie. So I need to do something ingenious technologically that is, that’ll make me worthwhile this year. Any ideas?

I’m feeling happy, zeeeggggzzzy *euphemism at it’s best* I got my valentine gift early, or I’ll assume it was one. Sender, don’t burst my already very inflated bubble. I got my favorite perfume delivered yesterday.

Now, I feel like that woman on the pic. I love the fragrance, it totally gets me, it’s actually angelic … it doesn’t pierce the nose, especially with someone with “fake” sinusitis, like me … It’s smooth, mild and you have to come closer to smell it. It so much describes my personality…hehe, I just had to pull one of those.

Okay, my mind is so cluttered, if someone hang out with me today, I would probably be humorous. And no, I’m not looking for a date or searching for a plan, my bed actually made an early appointment :) so I’ll probably sleep talk. Yikes, clearly you now understand how my Friday is already and maybe how my weekend is going to be. FUNNY!

Hard To Get … Becomes Easy Eventually!

This is pretty awkward but have you ever gone to a place to buy something, lets say a clothes shop and you spot something that you really really really like. Then, as you look at the cloth and measure it up, you finally ask for the price and the person selling it to you tells you some exorbitant price and you try your best to bargain to a price that you think suits the item and just to test the vendor you even go lower than half the price and he vehemently refuses but as you walk out, he calls you back and tells you “Leta pesa” i.e “Bring the money”.

What exactly runs through your head? Do you go like *woohoo* that’s a super cool bargain and you give the money and take the item or do you now hesitate now that the chase is over and it came to easy?

When that happens, I do the latter; I totally hesitate and start doubting the whole arrangement. I even scrutinize that item that had caught my eyes attention, I start looking for any malfunctions e.g quality, tears, discoloration something that would just make me understand why the hell the vendor has reduced the price all over sudden.

Is that what happens in life when some things that at first looked or seemed so difficult to get at some point becomes easy to get. Like once you get something you’d been wanting so bad without much struggle, you then start doubting its quality, worth and so on. That’s just an awkward observation.

Humans are just weird, hard to decipher.

You think you’ve struck a deal by handing to them what they’ve been yearning for, but deep inside this are the questions going through their minds, “why did I get this? why has it come so easy all over sudden? do I even really deserve it anyway? is there something wrong with it?” talk of being ungrateful…lol, but that’s just us.

I think once someone takes a certain road they should probably stick to it. Once a hard to get becomes an easy one, it’s a bit, OK, maybe very questionable!

Just like if you’re selling lets say the clothes expensively, stick to that price unless they’ve been put on discount or on sale … If you reduce the price all over sudden, it just makes you “the vendor” look dodgy, but then no one will buy because almost everyone wants something slightly if not much cheaper…hehe. So in short,

Hard to get, becomes easy eventually! … Just be patient, play along and don’t be shocked or doubtful when the ”easy” part comes…that was the essence of the hard, for you to enjoy the easy! ~ Kawi
