A Lesson You Must Learn From The Chinese Bamboo Tree

March 7, 2014 Leave a comment

Lessons of patience, persistence… from a tree; the Chinese Tree…

I have been working on a project for a while now – and just very recently I thought about giving up. I had considered the epileptic electricity in Nigeria, funding, the culture of “come today come tomorrow” and a couple of other countless reasons I had concluded wouldn’t help me achieve my goal. I would later take a pair of Panadol extra to reduce my headache. I had made up my mind to quit and continue later. (a ‘later’ that may never come)

I was really struggling with that decision. I was confused, tired, and fed up. The only excitement I had left was that from a National Interactive Youth conference I attended last saturday in the south eastern city of owerri put together by Nigerian Greatness coach, Jephter Akaehie. I had my mind properly refreshed by that experience. I had an awesome time coupled with…

Of Facebook and Twitter; Let’s Socialize!

Social Networking

Social Networking

“Why have you taken eons to have this social networking sites integrated with your blog?” my me asked my other me. This got me thinking why not create a Facebook page and have you and you and you over there get to know the other side of me; the social me?

Before I continue, lemme apologize sincerely for the long unintended hiatus. Well, I was in plenty in the social media and that’s why I’m inviting you, dear reader, to join me so that when the unplanned hiatuses occur in the future you aren’t left on the lurch. And *clears throat* I missed you too, really I did! I hope the apology is accepted. Wish I could bake a peace offering care for all of you; but if wishes were…

Well, as you already know, I’m a taciturn bloke so you may be wondering whatever you are wondering or maybe wondering if I have anything to offer in these social networks; if you’ll get something from following me on Twitter or liking my Facebook page. All I can say at this juncture is, surprises come in silent packages and gift wraps. That means i don’t know what you’ll gain because I have naught much to offer :-p

If you enjoy clean humor, general knowledge stuff, quotes (inspirational, funny, silly e.t.c), other wholesome and decent stuff, you’re welcome. Also, the FB page can be a sharing platform where YOU can share whatever wholesome and of benefit to others. Stuff like tips or sites that can help others make money online, lose weight , news, amazing facts, photos, tips on saving and using properly the little money pocketed from the online money making thing, relationship tips and suggestions and others that you find pleasurable and decent to share to all and sundry.

Virtually, it is a platform for sharing non-obscene, non-vulgar material but the refreshing kind for the benefit of everybody even though I don’t promise popularity and many ‘likes’. Any hue, the more of you, the fun it will be!

The purpose of this post is just to invite you to my Facebook page and to follow mwa on Twitter. There is room for everyone.

Paruwanja wa Soap Operas

January 24, 2012 2 comments

Kuna mambo ambayo yanachukiza na kuleta raha kwa wakati mmoja, yaani, yanafurahisha watu wa kundi moja na vile vile kuwachukiza wengineo. Kwa mfano, mlo wa panya na konokono ni vitoweo vya kudhaminiwa na wanaoishi magharibi mwa Afrika mfano wa nchi ya Nigeria no mlo wa nyoka ni kitoweo wanachokienzi wachina lakini jaribu kufungua mkahawa wa kuuza vitoweo hivyo humu nchini Kenya. Hutapata wateja n’go! Pengine wachache ambao wangependa kuonja tu na pia itachukua muda mrefu kupata wafuasi wa kiwango cha kuwezesha biashara yako kunoga, au sivyo?

Kisa kama hicho cha panya, konokono na nyoka kimetupata kama wakenya. Utakubaliana nami, msomaji, kuwa filamu za mapenzi maarufu kama Soap Opera ambazo zimeshambulia vyumba vyetu vya mapumziko kupitia televisheni zetu kwa kuwa karibu runinga zote zinavyonyesha kila siku. Kinachasikitisha ni kuwa hata na malalamishi zinazochipuka kila mara, hakuna afueni tunapata na badala yake soap opera zinazidi kuongezwa kwa mipangilio wa programu.

Wanawake wengi ndio mashabiki wa vipindi hivi ingawa kuna wanaume kadhaa pia wanaotumbuizwa nazo. Hii imewafanya wanawake hao kujitetea kua wanaume hupenda sana kandanda na si vyema kuwa wao wanashurutishwa kuachana na soap opera na wanaume wenzao hawataki kuacha au kupunguza kuona michezo hayo ya kandanda ya ligi. Hata hivyo mimi binafsi si mfuasi wa mpira sasa nisipate kuangaliwa kijicho mithili ya viazi vilivyooza kwa kutoa maoni yangu hapa!

Ili kuwe na usawa wa kijinsia kama vile katiba inasema, basi vipindi vireje katika mpangilio wa hapo awali. Kuwe na mchanganyiko wa vipindi kutoka fani tofauti tofauti kama fiction, drama, vipindi vya humu nchini (na viwe vya dakika kama arobaini si vipindi fupi ambazo tunashuhudia siku hizi) na kadhalika bora tu tusizidi kuwekwa mateka na hizi soap opera.

Najua kuna msemo, kama huweziwashinda; ungana nao. Wenye runinga hizi ni wafanyibiashara na wangependa kuwa na watazamaji wengi na soap opera imekuwa kama sumaku kuwavuta watazamaji lakini wakae wakijua mbio za sakafuni si mbio za nyika ambozo watakimbia kushinda medali. Watu huboeka na kitu na tunavyojua wakenya hufurahishwa na kitu kwa muda mfupi kwa hivyo, waanze kushughulikia watazamaji wengine pia mapema.

Mikakati ya kuleta televisheni ya dijital ziko tayari na hiyo italeta afueni kwa kuwa natumai itakuwa rahisi kugawanyisha vipindi katika runinga tofauti kwa mfano, vipidi vya soaps vitagawiwa runinga yao n.k. afueni ilioje!

***

Stesheni za radio hazijasazwa. Hekaya zinazohusisha ngono ni tele si haba. Najua wenye kusimamia vipindi hizo wanasema “kama hupendezwi funga masikio” lakini haitawauma matumbo wakiweka vipindi hizo wakati ufaao kama usiku wakati watoto (na mimi) wamelala fofofo.

Ni hayo… au kiasi. Ingawa mie si mtaalamu wa lugha hii ya Kiswahili, nimefurahia kukitumia katika andiko hili. Pengine nitalitafsiri kwa lugha ya kimombo siku nyingine, kama bado hizi soap opera zitozidi kuwa kero!

Self-help: Charity

July 29, 2011 2 comments

The other day I was putting my feet up to unwind after an arduous week which I had to play mom when some dude knocked on our door. He had a lot of baggage and I thought to myself why he was at our door since I wasn’t informed of an exterminator coming (he had a knapsack associated with meds and a bottle drawn cockroaches, so yeah am not a psychic, just observant).

The door was opened, as usual. He introduced himself to my bro.

He inquired if we had a container of some sort so as he could share the “mende (cockroach) murderer” with us. We got him one and he did just so. He also asked if we “have” those pesky rodents, you know, the rats and mice. Of course we have a mouse… for the comp though. hehehe

But, wait a sec…

There’s a rivulet that flows behind our house in this hood an you know what? No you don’t, so I’ll tell you. There are rats that are “squatters” on the banks of that stream. You know where they get their snacks? You are right, from the neighboring digs, including ours!! But most of us have put up measures to cub their menace and bar them from reaping where they didn’t sow (read keep out our homes!) by “serving” them rat and rat. Digressing…

Back to that dude (He didn’t give his name to me so I’ll keep calling him “dude”).

The dude had a powerful portion for that job too. How relieving! He shared that too. That night I served the rodents their “last supper” and boy oh boy it turned out to be so! For the roaches, their time will come since they aren’t here, yet. I exterminated them a while back.

The dude later told me he is working organization ‘Young Kenyans’ and they are doing the job voluntarily and one could contribute whatever amount they could. Unfortunately he found me on the broke side of life but since his “concoctions” were effective, how could I not chip in something to aid a fella, don’t ask how much, please 😉 . That’s why I’ve also blogged about them to extend my gratitude and maybe to come to ‘your’ rescue from those pesky insects and rodents. Good thing, he left their card:

  • Mosquitoes                            0713 951395-Serah Wanjiru

That’s it or almost. Rodent-free day to you mon ami.
