Anyone who knows me well will attest to the fact that my greatest weakness is meat; preferably of the roasted kind. I’m a card carrying life member of Spur’s all you can eat on Thursday. I have all the meat vendors in Kenyatta Market on speed dial. I had a current account with Karis from […]

4 years and it all boils down to a weather-beaten gown that has seen better days, shiny tinsel necklaces that make you look like the guest of honour at some harambee and a matatu full of your clansmen. 4 years is a long time. 4 years is a short time. In Jon Champion’s words at […]

“How big is it?” “Is it curved?” “How many inches?” “Can I touch it?” “What can it do?” “You know, I want it in my house real soon…”   I woke up to a flurry of push notifications on a Saturday morning, the one morning gazzetted by the De as a lazy sleeping-in morning. Breakfast […]
