Nairobi Java House, Nyali – Home Is Where The Cake Is

I don’t have a sweet tooth. Well at least that is the lie I tell myself daily. I just love cake, and where cake is, there my home shall be. Feel me?

Save for this ↑ cake, I love Java because of a number of things. The gourmet coffee, freshly prepared meals, yummy pastries, the accommodative menu, free wi-fi…etc etc. I say accommodative because you are not stuck with an option of french fries and a burger once when you get here.

A Monochrome L.O.V.E.

When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in black and white, you photograph their souls! ― Ted Grant
This post is not about photography. Scratch that. It actually is. I love black and white. The contrast. The definition. Two mutually exclusive alternatives. I have also been wanting to do a wall gallery for a long time. And with my love for monochrome, I think we all know what I have envisioned for that.
Long story short, I was up and about looking for a wedding gift for a friend and I came across this mug. It explains my life’s metaphor perfectly!
