TEMBEA KENYA YETU:GP KARTING CANIVORE,KENYA

If you are new to the world of racing and tuned to youtube clips on the same,you probably know what i mean.

Its all about formula one,NASCAR ,go karts and all the cars out there that can perfom a mad drift.

The race track is awesome and one of the few that exist in Kenya,the other is at the ocean city of paradise🏝️.

Talk about bucketlists, it was a lonely saturday, most of my friends had either gone home or were out on dates with their significant other. I decided to go to Carnivore for the weekend. Packed some cans of Cola,a monster can and some urban bites and a bottle of spring water.

Getting there,

First you have to reach the nairobi cbd and depending on ur financial🤑 feel, you can take the bus or an uber. By bus, you take the Oroikse sacco buses at Railways, they are punctual and will definitely stop at carnivore and wont pass it by and it will cost you 50/=. If you take an Uber its around 300/= and will drop you off inside the Gp Karting area code.

I took the bus, I was out of campus at around 10am, it takes around 1hr to get to town and 1hr to get to the Carnivore.

So basically 2hrs of listening to bus music.

Arrived in town at around 11:56am, called an Uber, arrived at noonish at the carnivore.

The first thing I saw was the closed up supermarket which was a real bummer for my tummy😱. I think it was Uchumi not so sure. When I got there I talked to the security guard for directions to the Karting area.

Trust me she was helpful but I kept getting lost, I decided to look up the place on Google maps, which was super helpful, I had to pass the airport then pass by the closed up Watersplash park, which again was closed up. Like how do u close up one of the best recreational places for an entire year with no plan of reinventing it back to the fun society. Enough with that😏. I finally got to GP KARTING and mehn did it look awesome, there were entire families, diverse races and the race course was so marvelous to watch that my adrenaline levels started to spike up.

I was really jumpy at the reception till I heard I was paying 1300/= for 10 mins of the course(this is Kenya) 😂😂. I sucked it up for the bucket list, paid and went straight to the gear and equipment section. There were blue , black, yellow and red overalls and this beautiful Arab chick who was 😅sorry guys I got carried away.

Am more of a blues guy and I don’t mean Chelsea,👀am more of a Golden state warriors fan.

I grabbed a helmet and mehn did I look lk a Rockstar,

a hot racecar rocker 🔥.

THE handler called up our names, Keith, as instructed from the reception through a walkie talkie. We were all lined up at the start tent.

My go kart number was (10)

Vroom!!!!!! Vrooom!!!! LET THE ENGINES ROAR. MAY THE GAMES BEGIN.

I started slow at first, the turns were a bit tricky and the steering was a bit sensitive. 30 seconds later I remembered why I went to driving school during Xmas, Santa was really mad even the cookies I got him were left on the table.

Right now I was more like, suck it santa, Keith has to show this newbies who’s boss. 😂😂Funny causes am as new as they can get.

Hitting xtreme speeds and nailing my drifts, I was already down to 4 laps. The u know😁Arab chick Nulah was really giving me a run for my money. She kept a strong lead and poor me, I had placed a bet on lunch🤑.

Am the blue blur on the other side of the Pic, really squint those eyes😁😁😁😁😁

2 laps left and we were still exchanging first and second places.

The racer on go kart 5 screeched into the tires causing the other 6 racers behind her to crash into an improvised road block🤣🤣

Trust me it was funny except for the overprotective mothers in their sun hats. Nulah and I kept on with the race, pressing hard on the gas pedal with my new black golden airmax😎😎😎😎😎

{keith on 10,Nulah is on 9,am ready to hit that corner before she can steal in on my curve. It’s the last lap}

We were that unofficial couple that held their own.Am sure she’s laughing while she’s reading this.

Neck to neck, almost to the finish line, the flag was up for the last lap🏁.

She gave me this angel smile when were coming up to the last corner, that blew me all the way to the tires, I finally confirmed the shock absorber theory surrounding the Michellin man😂

The Go-Karts have no reverse throttle ,I had to get out really fast, move the kart back and get back into the race really fast. She already won, I came in third 😅I now had to buy that lunch🍟🍔🍹 but who doesn’t want to lose to a godiva with mad racing skills.

We spent the entire day together roasting and feasting, strangers at first sight. The night creeped up and the beauty of the race course came to life.

The adrenaline I felt as I entered the speed force was worth every penny I spent. I recommend the Gp Karting experience for any free spirits and adrenaline junkies out there.Come and let us TEMBEA KENYA YETU.

💖 Dollface 💔

Ever fallen in love with a goddess

Your longest crush

The Rihanna to ur timberlake

Maybe We found each other when the time was right

I know I love her but our energies never understood this

She would travel just to get to see us reunite and share our love even if it was one day in a week

We wud spend our time at resorts next to the summer breeze by the pool side

Where I wud make my love known to her in all sorts of creativity

from the stars

to art

to fruit and tree carvings

to designs only she would love

She was all I could think about,

Everywhere I saw a letter (V) I would remember she was not next to me

She had this resemblance to Rihanna which everyone teased her about

I guess that’s why I don’t have any of her songs on my Playlist

We were a perfect match

We had matching necklaces

I was the moon to her star

Happy as can be we were

I was always the hyped one, she was my silent lover

I was a daredevil and she was my nurse, my conscience

U cud say she was the cautionary concept to my daredevil soul

Like every couple we would fight, kiss and makeup,

Sometimes I think I love her so much that whenever I messed up I would lean to the fact that Cupid would cover it up

Ever think that your ex is the reason your relationship dropped,

Till u hear the entire story,

I had flaws and no denying she had has,

But I never got to realise mine in time, am the reason she left.

am sorry Dollface

Our relationship was at a point where we had not gained the maturity to handle our issues let alone realise our mistakes

I was a jealous quite overprotective boyfriend at the time

a crazy romantic

but since then i never found smn like her that cud make me go the extra mile to impress her

From then I learnt a lot about life and I had to mature to adapt to the times where being savage and cold was the best defense.

I just got to a point where I put past the hate between lovers

and understood the parts of the play we chose to play

Just as Shakespeare said

I called her doll face, cause she was the angel who had won my heart in ways I don’t think anyone would ever that’s why I think I have been fighting this long

The first time I ever gave my all out of my many relations,

Months passed and one thing she was not sure about was communicating her feels

We fought a lot and it became really ugly, I, we made some harsh statements and decisions

This gave me lucid dreams I had no control off

I stressed up, got depressed at one point I cried the entire night even the howling wolves gave me a pass,

I even resorted to some sleeping pills just to be at peace for a while

Crying for a Swert hardly ever happens this is how gruesome it was, I came to love her more than I did me

I would burn up and trust me my state of mind was all set up for rehab

I was obsessed

I loved her and I still do now

I got crazy as the days passed

Called her from different cells, she would not respond

I even traveled to her hometown and used all the hints I cud to find her,

the blue gate,

her siblings school to no avail,

She already lost the passion we had to love

All in the name of love I kept fighting

I had one last affection of love, music

She loved the violin so much when we were together and I thought if I got her that she wud understand how much I was willing to fix us back

Trust me my friends would be against it

that’s why I kept it to myself

I was willing to accept any verdict she had

Even if she said no I was ready for it, she was worth all the happiness I cud manage to give her

She is tough, stubborn and such a masterpiece with a beautiful family

That’s why am attracted to her, let alone her divine beauty

When I lost her I lost a part of me and I don’t mean this in the literal sense

I did lose a huge part of my personality

I was this nice guy who believed in love and one of the craziest romantics ever

I was the sun to a fading heart

I lost positivity, I lost sense of who I was

I hated love and fell into a stage of rebounds

I lost my humble and persuasiveness and became proud and arrogant

I stopped believing in love, I stopped embracing and having the respect I had for our amazing women in the sense of love

I turned to the dark side

I went all Dath vader

I lost myself

Took a while to reinvent myself again, I was never used to losing in life

One thing she thought me was patience, understanding and my worth, she made me become stronger, a fighter, a wall never broken down,she made me find a new way of living, she made me who Iam now

I had to turn to adrenaline to try to forget the pain, I went out bungee jumping, horse riding, learnt to longboard, racing track, became a kizomba dance instructor

But every time I was idle or alone I remembered her

How I wish we were dating now, show her how much of a man I grew to be

Show her she is the only one I can be with

I still have our folder and since her I have never moved on or found anyone I could commit to longterm, am cool with being a lonecub

I feel and know she has moved on but if she ever came back to me

No one would ever make her go away again even my own flaws

I know better

Its still a fantasy

She is my blood diamond,my dollface

I still love you 😫

KENYAN SALSA :ADDICTED 🎭TO SALSA🎶 Part one💥

Its a lively, vigorous type of contemporary Latin American popular music, blending predominantly Cuban rhythms with elements of jazz, rock and soul music.

I love dancing 😁who really doesn’t but I never thought I’d go through a 14 hour salsa dance class .

The amphitheater was packed with epic performances that  landed the stage as the Dj spinned  the latest tracks that currently ruled the Kenyan airwaves .Sitted by my side was Winnie Dove (favorite girl) who was all supercharged dancing to the pysche master’s tune.She is amazing.

The Mist Salsa Ku group popped up on stage accompanied with a seductive Latino beat intro.They sold their campaign (join us) with the most elegant and remarkable dance moves executed with the best precision.Dove and I were the first to give them a standing ovation.   It was so smooth I had goosebumps all over and a sudden rush of utopia down my spine.I guess thats the day it all started (the addiction).

The Mist Salsa club secretary Ms.Muhoro was by the door signing in new recruits into the world of dance.Dove was the first to dive in for the pen before I did,either way ladies first😊.

She talked all about it all night as we had our usual cosy night walks.The feeling was contagious.

On Wednesday the initiation began .Girls all over the room literally all over the room.Cute,pretty,gorgeous girls😰 all😱 over. Salsa is not really popular with guys so the ratio was 5 to 1.Am not complaining. It was a slice of my kind of heaven.Mehn…so many girls.                   #No fisi. 

I kept calling Dove she wasn’t picking up so I left a voice note instead.Next to me was Superherodude(Mikey) The nigga was already getting contacts😝 from a quarter of the girls present …damn😆.The dance instructors started off with a feel of salsa and went into a sexy kizomba touch and smashed the finish with a romantic bachata coupling.

Mikey was like ‘how the fu** do we pull that off ,you are on your own man😰”

Trust me when I say, he was right in a way but I love a challenge and I love adding new skills to my résumé . I didn’t really enjoy the whole thing, my mind was half in it.I was recording📹 the whole thing so Dove wouldn’t feel as if she  missed out on anything.But one thing i came to learn about moments was that ; once you experience them live, u can’t relive them the exact same way u did.Its just the way it is.

Dove called ,I got out .

“I can’t really make it  something came up,sorry😖’

“Its cool I’ll catch u later I guess😟”

That was that .

We caught up later and she apparently couldn’t join the salsa crew she had other stuff she needed to get straight. I understood what she meant.

Dove was out ,Mikey was out ,I was all alone .I quit too.

Here’s the thing am very superstitious ,I believe in black cats🐾 being bad luck ,broken mirrors and all that juju stuff and I also believe in fate.

Everyday onwards as I walked out of the Nyayo gate I would see the Mist Salsa ku group still campaigning for new recruits by the amphitheater with very attractive posters and dances 

I would see more people👥 sign up for it.They seemed to have so much fun .I assumed them but every single day I passed them, the feeling to give it a shot was becoming much stronger and stronger .I come from mostly the Hip hop ,EDM ,rockers world 🎶and so am a very good breakdancer,a tut king,no relation to salsa ,I guess I was adopting diversity,a breach between the genres.

One day I decided not to just pass by but talk to one of the  instructors,Muhoro.

Muhoro is a beautiful👄 light skinned ❤spectacled ❤girl.She was warm and friendly. She explained I had to pay 300/= as registration but she kept some info out tho.A great strategy ,a really great strategy I arrived to my first salsa class🎶 on Monday night. I was late.For most of the other dancers it was their third class.I scanned the room for any familiars there were none except Muhoro.

I headed her  way , paid the registration fee and joined the catch up class which was taught by Beryl who later on with Mugo kept a keen eye on my progress.

At the end of the session we made a circle(tradition) ,the instructors commented on how the class was ,how to improve it and then Mugo brought up the strategical point I was talking about😂😂😂😂.We were to pay an additional 1200/= according to the ultimatums she would give out .In the next session on Wednesday night the number decreased greatly ,at first we were around 88 but now we were about 56 but the girls were still a majority.The fee had come to play.

But it was cheaper,in the outside world one salsa class session was about 300/= per hour even 1000/= depending on where you went either the Metro lounge, Spree club or  lavington.

My dance instructors were the gracious Rita 👅and The Great Omera 😂

Each session the class was getting bigger abd bigger but with new recruits ladies mostly.I came to love the dance but something happened I…

To be continued…..

 

 

 

 

 

Halloween🎃 Gold🎃

IMG_20171122_131652

The night of 31 October, the eve of All Saints’ Day, often celebrated by children dressing up in frightening masks and costumes. Halloween is thought to be associated with the Celtic festival Samhain, when ghosts and spirits were believed to be abroad.

Mehn…..I clipped this Halloween so bad I miss it already.

Due to the Kenyan elections,I was unsure of how the day would turn out.On Monday I was on my way back to the big city(Nairobi)from the city of the lake(Kisumu).On the road I made a couple of calls and ordered for a skull costume from a certain site. I decided to call my best friend Ryan and ask what his plans were.He didn’t pick up.My driver stopped at the Narok depot so we could grab a snack and hit the road.As I alighted ,Ryan called ,he informed me his plans which were pretty sweet if I may say;a Halloween photoshoot ,bobbing for apples,watching horror movies ,going for pizza at TRM(Thika Road mall)and playing dress up .

IMG_20171031_144352

The day arrived and I can tell you no doubt it was awesome and conflicting at the same time. At around lunch,I was about ready to start the day.As I was heading to the KU gate my friends Karin and Lorraine tagged along.We arrived at TRM by bus and we immediately headed for the Toy store .Don’t laugh 😂😂it was the only place that had the mask I wanted. I picked the skull mask which later on blew up on social media ,mostly Instagram and musically sites.We headed for the Chicken inn where I treated my friends to a burger fries coca cola combo.It was either trick or treat and I bet you know what I picked😎. Two O’Clock in the afternoon and Ryan and Princess were not in sight.Ryan wasn’t picking my calls so I tried Princess.Third attempt is when she picked up and said.”Swee we have a broadcasting class to around four ,I guess you have to wait ,windowshop or do sth ,its the mall,okay swee😘?”

“Sure thing your highness I’ll call ,bye”

That was that. I am super patient (thank my ex for that😉)but Lorraine and Karin weren’t .Minutes passed, a hour passed and Lorraine started to fire up her moods.She became easily irritated and tired ,the sweet beautiful angel just went all fiery mode.Even my jokes had no effect.I thought fast and just told them to follow me .The Game world packed with all the right stuff for epic memories and cool games to pass time.Ice hockey,bumper cars,shoot some hoops,shoot the alien ,ride the cups and many more .My Lorraine was getting back to her usual happy self. We were all psyched up to play but then again the bill was on me as usual but it was Halloween and I didn’t really mind .I just needed to stall them till Princess, Ryan and their crews arrived .It was working till the Game guys said that we needed a gamecard in order to play 😠.REALLY. I tried to sweet talk the guy and trust me it was working.In a way I was stalling .It was 3:47pm apparently 13 minutes to four. At 3:55 ,my Princess called 😋and she added 20 mins to the wait😭😭😭😭.Exhausted but the Halloween spirit kept me going .We gamed a bit and in no time they arrived. There were to different crews and I was the only mutual friend at the time. Finally,I wore my skull mask and scared Princess then went in for a warm hug from the combat dressed lady.Ryan was a bit confused at the time ,he was collecting cash for Pizza and trust me his math was off 😂😂.I showed them the other masks ,mine was 590/= and so were the others.They assumed buying and headed to a corner and started taking selfies with the masks with the price tags still on😂💲😂till the storekeeper came around.

We headed for the Pizza inn and everyone got to know one another. Only 10 mins till our bellies would enjoy the large tasty chicken periperi pizza,and the barbeque pizza👅👅👅.We

IMG_20171031_165201

did some awesome musicallys that we would post online later to floss to some peeps about the wonderful time we were having.As the only mutual link between the crews I was the one mostly talking with some help from Ryan.Princess kept tickling and poking me all the time 😂(its our thing don’t judge)😂.An awesome day we all went our separate ways and I went back to campus.

At night I put on my skull mask and walked by the street scaring most of the people I met .I stood by the bush next to the popcorn stand and began to scare some ladies.You could have seen their faces,they ran and screamt for their dear lives.Some unfortunately fell down and others knew what I was doing and were so intrigued by it that I landed some👅 contacts.Win 😂win.I even got free popcorn and earned the nickname Mr.Halloween🎃.The midnight clock chimed ,the holiday was over 🎃Finally some rest ,it was an awesome Halloween.Bucket list check👌.

Change is a Rainbow

The rainbow has around seven different yet similar colors .All the rainbows color are primary yet secondary .The different colors combine with any other to create the latter bringing  about different effects which build up the beauty of the rainbow .A rainbow nation has different colors yet live among st one another to bring a change. Either good or bad it is still a change .The world is like a rainbow it picks which color it should play with and this brings a trickle effect down to its unsuspecting inhabitants.Rainbows fade with time so does change but sometimes the effect it leaves with us can be irreversible.

It is believed that at the end of the rainbow there is pot of gold that awaits .If you manage to get to it first before the Irish leprechaun he will grant you a wish to get it back the luck of the Irishrainbow earth

Spiderweb👅🌟

We all hv memories ☀so old we find lots of cobwebs in our subconscious .Memories are lk spiders they Mk their webs in a series of patterns that get triggered by the little events that happen around us.Either its the smell of fresh loam soil👃 or the touch💆 of a pet or even a deja vu ☀incident.Memories are lk spiders they crawl up anytime they want to and when u about to mk meaning of things they cut their web and jump to another wall u hv to breakdown to get word of wat u wanted🙆 to recall.The best u can do is let it be or u could result to a spa session 🙏specifically acupuncture. It helps to know that our spiders hv their reasons to crawl.🔱🔱🔱🔱Screenshot_2017-04-08-15-00-08
