Fatal Attraction: Of dangerous men and the women who attract them

This got me hot feet from the moment they started advertising, I felt like I should have been at the venue waiting for the day to come! The conversations teasers were soooo me, finally someone got me! My friend Koffian was wondering what the hype was all about; to her a dangerous man is a physically abusive man. But for me, I knew, I had experienced a dangerous man but not in the physical manifestation.


I had dated one dangerous man after another hadi to some point I thought someone had cursed me and died, dooming me to an eternity of unhappy relationships. I crave for stability and reliability when it comes to a relationship but somehow I end up with drama and the type of guys who fall me SMH!!! God forbid. Not that I am that choosy or anything but please can I get my prince charming already!? [...]

From A Guy's Heart: Why I went silent on you

I am not a mind reader, he knows that, I know that but why won’t he talk to me? This is not one of those cases where two can play the game. I am not the type of person who goes quiet, even my high school class prefect got tired of writing my name in the noisemaker list, it became automatic incase the teacher passed by to ask who has been talking in class. So my going silent on him because he just went on silent on me isn’t an option I can pursue, but as much as I want him to talk to me I also want to understand why he went silent in the first place.


You can imagine my relief when I went to register for the next Udada event and realize that was the same thing they were going to talk about, only that they had thee Oyunga Pala talking about it. I know him to talk to the men about women and I am curious on what he has to say to us about the men. And well, he does have his sense of humor so I might end up laughing my man drama away. [...]

Sisterhood Turns One!!!

Drum rolls ladies! Some happy dance and while at it maybe we can have more of what we are already having. The day is finally here and I can eat a cake without feeling guilty and this time without the excuse of 'it is someone's birthday, it's actually Sisterhood's birthday!


It's a smooth ride as I walk towards the Kanga decorated tables at Udada, there's no registration hassle today, and everyone seems to be in the celebration mood. I am silently hoping there is food too, celebration the Kenyan style. I actually got it all planned out in my head. I walk in, there are disco lights, some real nice alive music playing loudly, a dance stage is set up with rainbow colors, and on the right side of the hall...a buffet!!!! Ha-ha I am probably setting my stomach hormones up for disappointments but dreams are valid, right? [...]

Redefining Success, Opportunities are everywhere

How badly do you want that thing you say you want? Commitment is when you say, No excuse is good enough. That was the last statement of James Mworia, CEO of Centum Investment as he concluded his presentation on Redefining Success, but somehow that is the statement that did it for me. Not to say that all other information was hogwash but commitment was the icing on the cake.


Tuesday 2nd August was not like any other evening for me, well none of my 1st Tuesdays of the month are anymore since I discovered Udada [...]

Activate Your Self Worth- Stop Putting Yourself Last (Part 1)

This is one of those stories that has given me trouble on where to start, it is not that I do not know what I want to put across, I do but as Laimani Bidali said Self Worth is not a topic for one evening, but for a full conference!


Tuesday 5th July was a whole new experience for me, somehow I had always associated self worth with self esteem and though I had loved my experience with #Udada on Fathers of Honor, I was not entirely certain why I had registered for Activate your Self Worth event. Well, my friend Tryzer did ask me to accompany her but apart from me being a good Dada, I did not see the need of getting stuck in traffic now that the Prime Minister of Israel was around. Wah!

Did you guys experience that traffic?! [...]
