Let me start off by wishing all Muslims around the world an Eid Mubarak. This is the one day I would wish to be at Mombasa. Eid festivities there are out of this world awesome. There are bursts of colour from all corners, the aroma that hung in the air tantalising the senses, people laughing and talking loudly, men in white all over! You don’t get to see that many men in white anywhere else in Kenya! There, you get to understand the meaning of Eid even as a Christian!
Its different at Nairobi. Or maybe am in the wrong neighbourhood! But the only thing people seem to love about Eid here is that its a national holiday! Sad but true!
Knowing how today should be celebrated is the purpose of this post. I have gone all out and worn love. Literary! Everything I have worn today is because somebody somewhere loves me!
The pendant is from one of my bestest friends I have. Miss Victoria, the best part of my life is having you in it!
That’s a bracelet from a Miss Maryanne, it reached me via Vickie!
I was with Libby when these were bought at Toi’s market after hours of looking. Shoe shopping is one of the most frustrating lady things that I do. But am usually with Libby, whose very presence makes me comfortable with being a big foot! She’s the only friend who has the right to be honest with me regarding my feet…her and Vickie!
The pink scarf is courtesy of Phylis Kamatei. I love that girl to bits…bubbly, lively, ass-full (Hehe) that’s how I can describe her!
My girl friend Tilda insisted I buy the silvery glistening top and it was a wise investment. That girl knows her fashion!
The bag is actually borrowed from Vio, she keeps telling me not to take her bags but I really can’t resist! She knows her bags!
The denim shorts and pink earings are solely my mum! I miss you, mum! And that concludes my Eid attire post.
Happy Eid to all!
Sharing is caring…tell a friend to tell a friend!
Am back! I have had what many would term as a good holiday seeing as how for three months, i did nothing but laze around, earn cash for my upkeep in a stress-free job and eat! Yes, i have gained weight which will be shed off in less than three weeks, and no, i do not have any plans of joining a gym. Its the climate change, you could say, all this cold, and no more of mum’s cooking, and classes, and assignments, they are all bound to take their toll on me. And they do take it, faster than i would, perhaps, like but then again, am not much of a complainer. I accept and move on. Which reminds me, ever sat or conversed with someone, for say, two or three hours but afterwards you feel very sad? Not because of what was said or what feelings the said person invoked in you, no. You feel sad because you know you just lost three hours that you will never get again, and for what? So that some guy can talk his heart off? Or because you are a polite person who find it hard to tell someone off with their boring stories? So what do you do? You sit and listen to mindless rumble that does not even concern you.
Unfortunately, i did a lot of that. I wasted so much of my time with people who did not mean much to me and now that am back to my ‘life’, i look back and feel sad. Because all that time i lost i will never get back. And that’s not even the saddest part. The saddest part is that i had the chance to spend my time with people who actually matter and i didn’t. Do i blame my politeness? I could, except, i do not think am that polite. I might not tell you off and all but i simply tune off. So, yes, go ahead and tell me your life history and how you got heart broken at one point or another, and i will sit there and listen to you and think of reasons as to why you will be blocked from my life afterwards. I do not mind people pouring their hearts out to me, on the contrary, it is rather entertaining. But it is not entertaining if it is not my business or if it doesn’t concern me. You want a friend to listen to your woes and give you advice, am your girl. i will not judge you, i will simply tell you the reality that you insist on blocking. You might not like it but that is not my worry! My duty would be to tell you the truth that you refuse to believe! But never again will i sit and listen to someone and later ask myself why on earth i wasted that much time! I refuse to be ‘used’ like that again. I guess its time i learnt the difference between being a good friend and being wasted by ‘friends’.
Now, the following song MIGHT not have a connection to this post but it has been in my head since i got back to school. Do have a listen and enjoy it. Feeling like am living on borrowed time!
P.S bottom line is, spend time with people who make you happy!
