Kenyan Blogs - MEME


Favourite Kenyan food:

•Risaiko (just walk in to Elijah ‘Kasindeeh’ Onyango’s joint on Wood Road in Industrial area. They’ll know what you’re talking about.
•Tell you the truth ‘ Napenda zote – nyama ya n’gombe, ugali, kachumbari ili watu wasikonde’ (K-South)

Favourite Kenyan drink:

•Ice Cold Pilsner Ice.

Favourite Kenyan TV programme:

Ngoja Most memorable kwanza is that section after KBC news back in the day - Weather with Wandimi Muchemi. Dude rumored to have claimed “Tomorrow there will be no weather!”
•Plot 10 was a blockbuster at digoloz

Top Three Four Kenyan hang outs:

•Mamba both Nai and Coast.
•I have no shame declaring that ka-old school joint SJ’s opposite F2 as one of a favorite. Cheap beer, and proximity to F back in my hanging days.
•Florida Casino, if its still open. (don’t know)
•Carnivore- Rock Night.

Top Kenyan holiday destination

•If I had to choose then Coasto – esp. Malindi
Kisum-city! And Nyeri come a close tie for second.

3 Kenyan phrases you use a lot (ati, nini, nani DO NOT count and neither does bilaz!)

Open the tap –•Direct translation for ‘Fungulia maji’ – turn the tap on and let the water flow.
Jamaa!! Or Weh Chief?...Calling out a dude.
Sema bana? Namna gani?... Saying hi, how are you?

Three Four things about Kenya/Kenyans that make you go 'hmmm'

•Jealousy bug in the diaspora is a killer! No cohesion at all
•Hunger for materialistic gains. Dude drives a 3 series BMW but the ride is parked outside his jobo place 24-7 coz he can’t afford to take time off due to car payments, hiyo! Si maendeleo!
•Mental disease that having a ‘white’ girl is being special or something. Gimme my African-womano (no pun intended to white chics, and those who have white/yellow/pink/green or purple chics by the way).
•Raging malcontents - Nuff Said!

Three things non-Kenyans say about Kenya/Kenyans that make you go 'hmmm'

•Is Kenya a town or a city? (I kid you not!)
•Tell them you’re from Kenya and they’re like; ‘is that close to Nigeria or Sudan?’ Uhmmm… Do I insult your mother?
•I watched Surivor Africa and loved it. (Ok thanks for sharing that!)

Three things about Kenya/Kenyans which non-Kenyans ought to know.

Shrubbing is not an accent! – Jamaa says ‘ALELO’..instead of’ ‘Alero’: Junguu retorts.., “I like your accent”
•It’s not all a forest with villages. We do have cars and planes, buses and taxis
•Not all Kenyans run gad-danit!
(Oh and one more…Kenya joining the war on terror has absolutely no consequence whether you win or not!) we’re just there to be seen so don’t pin your hopes too high.

Complete this sentence: I am Kenyan because...i'm sometimes bila feelings. (case in point - I laughed at some dude barreling down the rudder to his demise in Titanic when the thing tanked)After surviving in Kenya, I can definitely survive a plane crash!

And finally list 3 members of the Kenyan Blog Ring you would like to see complete this quiz.
