1. Favourite Kenyan food:

i think kenyans have perfected the art of roast!!!!and hence this can range from
-the ever so delicious nyam chom:be it beef,kuku,mbuzi(oh let me have a moment as i quiver and shiver recalling ribs once eaten at delamere in naivasha!!!)
-heck even the occasional "mtura" with or without the food poisoning
-roast maize:from the corner of any street in the estate with the seasoning of a squeezed lemon and chilli
-any thing eaten with clean bare hands:from ugali and sukuma. Chapo's with thick beef stew where u place the stew on the triangular piece of chapo and u roll it with hands and eat till ur giddy wit ecstasy.

2. Favourite Kenyan drink:

-call me sissy i love me my fanta!!!
-pundit ur right there is nothing like good old passion juice that just makes you wanna! am talkin bout freshly squeezed juice that sends my allergies haywire-sneezing and sniffling in sheer delight!

Nicko! you forgot to add lyrics
to patriotic songs that only
choirs sing and oh yeah, the same
songs that you have for your ringtone.
Can you remember the tunes to this songs?



Wengi wa wauliza tutaijenga
Hii Kenya yetu kwa njia gani
Kuijenga Kenya ni rahisi
neno harambee ndiyo msingi
Kitu cha kwanza ni umoja
na cha pili ni uhuru wetu
na cha tatu kenya yetu
hatutaki ukabila.

and..


Kenya, Kenya, Kenya taaifa letu
kenya, Kenya, kenya nchi yetu

oh yeah and KBC staples like Sanaa ya kiswahili and mambo leo...

Mgeni kumpokea, kumbe ni kujitongea


Soray, I never stood outside at 20th Century,I found Nicko standing there. Apparently Nicko had been hanging outside Java trying to look cool, but when the management so his fat ass outside, they asked that he move to let the sunshine come in kidogo.
This guy is a menace to society
