Kenya Blog Meme

Favorite Kenyan Food:
- I like me a mutura dripping with blood and pili pili.
- Any sought of nyama choma (Kuku, mbuzi, ng'ombe, you name I love it)
- Ugali, sukuma and matumbo with a shit load of royco.
- Farmers choice streaky bacon
- KCC salted butter. I could eat this stuff alone, its so goddamn good.

Favorite Kenyan Drink:
- My late grandma's fermented porridge.
- Muratina
- Pili ice
- Safari cane and ginger ale
- Almost forgot TEA. A brotha from Limuru likes this shit, would drink a whole flask back in the day. My folks are zombies if they have none every 2 hours.

Favorite TV progi:
- OMO pick a box. (money or the box)
- I forget the name, but it was a game show on KTN, they would ask varoius general knowledge
questions and shit like that. I wonder if it still comes.

Favorite Hang Place:
- Bob's in Mombasa.
- Soho's in Westlands
- Memories in Limuru

Favorite holiday destination:
- Late grandma's place in Limuru

3 phrases I use alot:
- Sa sawa
- Mazee
- hebu I tell you

3 things abut Kenya/Kenyans that make me go hmmm...
- Rugby tournas are an excuse to get totally wasted, forget the rugby.
- we will drink virtually anything with alcohol in it (Kumi Kumi. Power etc)
- Alcohol sold in sachets (gunia as some call them)

3 questions non-Kenyans ask about Kenya/Kenyans that make you go 'hmmm'
- Do wild animals roam in you backyard?
- You guys speak english?
- Is everyone there poor?

3 things about Kenya/Kenyans which non-Kenyans ought to know
- $1 can buy you alot more in Kenya than in the states.
- We sell beer in 32 oz bottles, not 12 oz (so stop bragging about how many u can swallow)
- Kenya (and Africa in general) is way more than 1 big national park.

Complete this sentence: I am Kenyan because...
- Dude, just because I am. Just had a big discussion abotu what makes me an African, I do not
need to justify my Kenyaness. I am coz I am

It is amazing how many Kenyans listed
"we don't have animals in our backyard" as something that non-Kenyans say to them.

Enjoyed reading the Meme.

You know what. Interesting read. Kenyan are just unique and you don't have to be on an African safari to appreciate Kenya. We are also very friendly too.
