Mteja hapatikani – staying connected and up to date.

Finally gave in to the misery that my once faithful and ridiculously user-friendly phone that my Nokia XpressMusic 5130c-2 was. Now its just a ghost, haunting me with its former superiority made completely obsolete by the digital advancements of android, ios and windows supported gadgets! I am yet to experience the ecstasy of whatsapp and instagram – It’s that bad!

Since I’m not one to jump with the hype (read – I cannot afford an iphone/Samsung galaxy S3). My options (after arduous research) are limited to the LG Optimus L3 Dual vs Samsung Galaxy Y Duos.

Although both are run on android with dual sim capability and a myriad of similar specs. LG comes out on top due to (almost double) more RAM and storage space as well as longer talk time and battery life plus easy sharing. It does however fall short on download speed by almost 100% and doesn’t sound or look as cute :-/ #sad. Now if only I can find a shop with any stock left. They’ve been flying off the shelves like my sister’s cream cheese carrot cake!

East Africa’s Premier Music Experience

Started in November 2008, Blankets & Wine has grown steadily to become one of the most highly anticipated music events in Nairobi and beyond. Having now ventured into new territories within the wider East Africa region, what started out as a small group of lovers of afro-based music has become a movement that has more than earned itself the title of East Africa’s premier music experience.

Every month, thousands drive their families down to Mamba Village gardens with their maasai shukas, picnic baskets & wine all in the name of afro-based fusion music. From the amazing local talent of my favorites – Sauti Sol, Kenya’s ambasador to the world Eric Wainana and Kidum; as well as South Africa’s greats like Lira, TKZee and Liquideep (back again due to demand to perform this weekend) to international stars like Dwele.

Even though with popularity comes dilution by the masses; those who understand what the event has managed to achieve can hopefully see through the ‘bougie’ stereotype fog created by the young, vodka swigging fashion competing middleclass with unfortunately much else to do…. For it truly has encouraged domestic consumption of world class afro-based music, created and performed by African musicians and solidified the culture of live music consumption with a correlated lifestyle represented by key brand partners.

So yes, you will find me in my harem pants, sipping cheap wine and bopping to some awesome African beats. Check BBM (technically it will be twitter for me – @evemwaniki), and you will see; my status will be playing #Liquideep!


I’ll be your river…..

If you’re looking for the big adventure
and gold is all that’s on your mind
If all you want’s someone to take your picture
then I won’t waste your time.
See, maybe I’m too quiet for you
you probably never noticed me
but if you’re too big to follow rivers
how you ever gonna find the sea?

If all you want are answers to your questions
And you can’t seem to find no love for free
If you’re looking for the right direction
Then darling, look for me
See, I can make the load much lighter
I just need you to confide in me
but if you’re too proud to follow rivers
how you ever gonna find the sea?

Arrogance – dismissive,aloof


These things are your becoming…. via @SamsungMobileKE

Life isn’t some narcissistic game you play online. It all matters – every action, every regret, every act of love.
The useless days will add up to something. The shitty jobs. The hours writing in your journal. The long meandering walks. The hours reading poetry and novels and dead people’s diaries and wondering about sex and God and whether you should shave under your arms or not. These things are your becoming.

Imagine a woman in love with herself!

Imagine a woman who believes it is right and good she is a woman.
A woman who honors her experience and tells her stories.
Who refuses to carry the sins of others within her body and life.

Imagine a woman who trusts and respects herself.
A woman who listens to her needs and desires.
Who meets them with tenderness and grace.

Imagine a woman who acknowledges the past’s influence on the present.
A woman who has walked through her past.
Who has healed into the present.

Imagine a woman who authors her own life.
A woman who exerts, initiates, and moves on her own behalf.
Who refuses to surrender except to her truest self and wisest voice.

Imagine a woman who names her own gods.
A woman who imagines the divine in her image and likeness.
Who designs a personal spirituality to inform her daily life.

Imagine a woman in love with her own body.
A woman who believes her body is enough, just as it is.
Who celebrates her body’s rhythms and cycles as an exquisite resource.

Imagine a woman who honors the body of the Goddess in her changing body.
A woman who celebrates the accumulation of her years and her wisdom.
Who refuses to use her life-energy disguising the changes in her body and life.

Imagine a woman who values the women in her life.
A woman who sits in circles of women.
Who is reminded of the truth about herself when she forgets.

Imagine yourself as this woman.
