Walk Around Nairobi

First of all.. Happy new month!!👐👐

Ever since I got back to Kenya I haven’t done nearly as much exploring as I’d like. Nairobi is without a doubt one of the most beautiful cities in the world… A little concrete jungle. I’m determined to explore little bits of it a little at a time. Here are some of my favourite pictures this week!

Coffee and Tea Farm

I’m finally back in the motherland (Kenya)! One of the first things I did was go to a coffee and tea farm not too far from where I live. Coffee and Tea farmers have the best view! I wanted to share some of my favourite pictures with you, I hope you enjoy them!:)

Marina Bay in Singapore

Last weekend a few of my friends and I decided to go to Singapore for the Chinese New Year break and it was absolutely fantastic!

One of the most iconic places in Singapore is Marina Bay, a bayfront surrounded by resorts, theatres and museums. The best time to go is at night when it’s well lit.

What looks like is a cruise ship perched in the air is actually a sky park, and right below is the infinity pool, which holds the record for being the longest infinity pool in the world.

The boardwalk along the beachfront is stunning!

There’s a beautiful water and light show using sprinklers, music, and graphics on Sunday-Thursday at 8:00p.m and 9:30 p.m and on Friday and Saturday at 8:00 p.m, 9:30 p.m, and 11:00 p.m.

One of the coolest things about Marina Bay was this man made lake right in the centre of the mall!

I didn’t get to go on the Ferris wheel due to time, but I got to view it while leaving it’s more of an observation wheel that gives you a bird’s eye view of Singapore.

image

There’s definitely a lot more to see in Singapore, the night safaris, the bird park, universal studios, and so much more! I’ll have to go back again!

If you’ve been to Singapore before I’d love to know what your experience was like!

Oreos In Your Custard

Hey guys! I tried to get a little fancy with custard earlier by adding Oreo’s to it!

I made the custard in the regular way (with milk, sugar, and custard powder) and let it cool down for a few minutes.

image

After its cooled down, pour into a blender, and add the Oreo’s.

image

You’ll only need to let it blend for 15 seconds. It should look like this after blending:

You can choose to have this warm or you can have it cold. I prefer it cold, and put it in the fridge for 20 minutes.

You can add more Oreo’s because who doesn’t love Oreo’s?
Try it and tell me what you think!

My Dream Reader

Hey guys!
Today’s post will be on the 101 challenge which is on ‘my dream reader’.

I would have to say my dream reader is my mum. My mum has always been supportive of new experiences, new ideas, and all things new, while I’ve always been the exact opposite!

She’s always been worried about whether I would find my voice, take risks, and generally live my life.
Although I tell her of my experiences, I can’t wait for her to view this blog, and see all my experiences, and see that I’m finally trying new things and indeed living my life.

She’ll probably take a screenshot of each post, print them out, frame them and hang them around the house!

For the day you get to see this… This is for you mum!

Why I started this blog

Hey guys!
Today’s post will be about why I chose to start blogging.

I had thought of blogging for quite sometime, but I wasn’t sure about what I would blog about, but I decided I’d start a blog anyway. Around February I started exploring a little more, I started travelling a little more, sometimes with a group of friends but most times on my own.

To most people that’s pretty standard, but I’ve been a pretty closed up person for a long time, the idea of stepping out of my routine of university classes and home terrified me, sent me into a panic, and for some reason made me feel incredibly guilty. But then I read a quote which I believe is by Muhammad Ali:

“A man who views the world at 50 the same way he did at 20, will have wasted 30 years of his life.”

That quote made me realize that if I continue to stick to routine I’ll be the person that will have wasted those years of my life. Routine is definitely comfortable but if there’s anything I’ve learnt this year it’s that exploring and trying new things, even the smallest of things really do bring happiness.

The goal of starting this blog was to share my experiences with others and hopefully inspire people to go out and step out of their routine.
I invite you to view the universe with me.

Zero to Hero

Hey guys!
I signed up for the zero to hero blogging 101 challenge with the daily post!
I started this blog to document my journey. Literally. Travel, health, and others that I’ll be sharing with you on this blog, instead of a personal journal I decided to blog so as to share my experiences with everyone, as well as get feedback on ways that I can improve on my writing and photography as I intend to do these long term.
If I blog successfully throughout the year, I hope to become a better blogger,photographer, as well as a better writer. I also hope that I’ll have a bigger audience that understands and appreciates my work.
