I remember when my mum used to ear-bash me for my love of the telly. With phrases like:
“MOCHA! Wewe na hiyo TV nitawatupa inje!”
“Usirudi kulala kwa kiti yangu alafu unawacha TV wazi.” (Late nite Channel O watching days)
“Sasa, ukienda kwa wenyewe, utakuwa uki watch TV ni kama kwenu.”
OK…….not exactly in those words, but they are not far from the real ones…..but you get my drift.
In my opinion, those days have paid off (pole mum…..I love you though). I am now hooked more than ever. With cool episodes of Prison Break, Ugly Betty, Desparate Housewives and many more, I have become a multi-programme watching person. Like the other day as I was waiting for Prison Break, one channel had this programme about freaky food and the other my favourite soap. I was watching more of the freaky food.
Remember the rainy days when the crickets came out and some of the kids would actually eat them for kicks…..that was mentioned in the program, the way they(the crickets) are a delicacy in Africa. There is a store in LA that sells sweets with insects in them or chocolate covered insects. In Asia, boiled duck eggs that were almost hatching and camel meat in Australia. What weird or freaky food would you or have you eaten?
……..and while on the subject of Apple products, while lie, I am digging the iPhone. Don’t just look at the pictures featured on the links. Please watch the keynote address by Apple’s CEO, Steve Jobs and draw your own conclusions. Cool gadget or what???
Now, on to web surfing…..
For those who didn’t know, Me I Love NAirobi REgardless has done a Jay Z. Yep……. He is back!!! About time as well! 🙂
Moving on, I was chatting to someone the other day and they gave me this website and I thought their concept is a good one. A holiday, making new friends and fun all rolled into one package. Did I forget to mention good weather and destination? OOPPSS…ma bad! They took a package with them and they had lots of fun. Maybe something to try when you are in Kenya?
There are a series of YouTube clips that have sparked a very minor debate in Mashada. Just reminds me of how as humans we only wanted to hear what we want. In my opinion, despite the heavy accent, the dude speaks alot of truth. He is among the very few who will come out and speak the truth about Kenya and its Politics (remember Githongo). Here is one where he speaks of landgrabbing/landlessness in Kenya (links to the other clips can be found under ‘more from this user’).
This is to the Kenyans in Kenya – What is the movie industry like? The movies currently on sale, are they on VCD or DVD format?
