#MasenoDays: Our time to eat

Nothing ever set the mood more than that end of year period when house parties came into full swing. After countless months of planning, which would mostly involve being fleeced of painfully saved pocket money all in the name of a house party, we would finally get the chance to feast like kings (as close as it gets anyway).

#MasenoDays: Shoe Thief

The earliest memory I have of being robbed is back when I was in around class 6, a bunch of thieves broke into our house late at night and proceeded to clean our sitting room of all electronics. Being the heavy sleeper that I am, the story was only retold to me in the morning after the damage had already been done.

#PoetsCorner : No longer

I am no longer at ease, wrapped round with distress
Innocence plucked, the tranquil facade a forgone memory
What have you done to me, cruel cruel age
Wisdom has become my burden
And alas the source of my unrest

Religion and dating

Say what you will, 'tis better to be left than never to have been loved.
William Congreve

That quote reminded me of scenario, a guy wanted to go out with this lady but she was indifferent about it because the guy wasn't religious. I've been contemplating this situation and I find it somewhat wanting.

The Riddle of 4G and the Kenyan Market

When I got my Galaxy Note 2 a while back, I was fascinated by every aspect of it (Why else buy a phone unless it’s everything you desire right?). I did notice one thing though, this feature of LTE (Long term Evolution for those who aren’t that conversant with all things Telecoms) and I kept wondering, when will I ever get to use this feature. It felt like having a Ferrari you couldn’t race, I mean “what the hell” right?

Mpeketoni Attack, Nation Under Siege.

It happened again, I awoke to another sad tale of the declining state of insecurity in the country and less than encouraging remarks of how we are one.

Opposing Views: When you least expect it, a love tale


If there's always been one person I can rely on to set me straight when it comes to matters of the heart without a doubt it has always been Tasha Amadi. She has been an inspiration in more ways than one and a true friend through and through. We recently had this back and forth on falling in love when you least expect it, this is how it went

Opposing Views : 50 Shades of Skin

So I've decided to shake things up a bit and add an antithetical view to my own, it felt kinda lonely asking all those rhetorical questions so the next couple of posts I'll be having guest bloggers give their take in contrast to mine on various issues.

Kenya's Dubius Honour of Cyber crime

I will admit that the title is borrowed, it was too well placed not to be but the issue is real. Kenya has been ranked 5th (in the world mark you) in terms of cyber crime bringing to light the need for companies and government to seriously consider an upgrade in terms of security systems.

Slaying the Giant Safaricom

Of late I’ve been reading a lot about the upcoming launch of Equity’s Mobile Virtual Network Operator service which is set to be the next big thing, or so they say (sometimes these things can be a swing and a miss). As a telecommunication specialist I’m quite excited about the move and the new technologies being introduced into the market but it did raise a few questions of my own.

My Bipolar Symphony

The is an expression of the wavering feelings you get after a break up , torn between accepting reality and holding on to irrational  hope, clouded by misplaced emotions.  We all know that love at its core is nonsensical , a jumbled up mess of decisions perceived to tend towards an ultimate good.

Petrichor for those who don't know is the scent of rain on dry earth ,for me it is a representation of the simpler things in life.  The things that keep us grounded when the world spins out of control and it feels like we're on a war path.
