BACK TO THE ROOTS

In Honor of Africa Day, I wanted to share with you a recipe that is made in most(if not all) East African households.  Also, I will be having a friend over for Sunday Lunch next weekend and, she happens to be vegetarian. This is basically getting my mind and taste buds ready for more vegetarian…

LOVE AT FIRST PRAWNS

Seafood is EVERYTHING. Not everything. EVERYTHING! I found my sincere love for seafood two and a half years ago in Malaysia when I basically tried out a variety of them and just couldn’t stop.  As you’ve probably figured out, today’s recipe is all about it! I was craving some prawns and we happened to have…

FESTIVE BRUNCH

Tis the season to be Jolly.  Tis the season to show how much you care for your loved ones through food.  I read somewhere that food is actually the ingredient that binds us together.  Accurate yes? Before I share my recipe, let me teach you a thing or two about the origins of Brunch.  Some food…

FLYBOARDING IN MOMBASA

Picture this: You silkily gliding through the cool salty waters of the Indian Ocean like a Mermaid, jumping through the waves like a dolphin and then finally shooting up into the heavens like Iron Man. Sounds cool right? Well if you happen to be in Mombasa and have an afternoon and Kshs. 10,000/100 USD to…

ZIP LINING IN JINJA

It is quite unfortunate that the previous day we received a call from the Travel agency informing us that the bungee jumping park was closed indefinitely. Earlier on, Amy had gotten us the best deal of the century (100,000Ugx/ 27 USD for the jump). Super cheap right?! After all, it would be another activity checked…

ROLEX

A Rolex . Most of you would know it as a timepiece but in Uganda, it’s a very popular greasy snack that is sold at ubiquitous roadside stalls. It is essentially an omelette  wrapped in a chapati or many chapatis (“roll eggs”). There are variations; each egg and chapati that you eat, is 500 Ugx therefore,…

JINJA

Jinja city is in the South East of Uganda, on the Victoria Nile River, near Lake Victoria. It’s approximately 2 hours (70km) away from Kampala. Apparently, on 3rd August 1958, John Hanning Speke discovered the source of the Nile which is a small spot along the shoreline in Jinja – where we were going. Many…

GADDAFI MOSQUE

Gaddafi Mosque seats on what is now known as Kampala Hill (old Kampala) which is one of the Seven (7) major hills in the city. I was pretty excited to enter a Mosque for the first time in my life. This Mosque is a tourist attraction, so expect to pay a small fee of 5000…

HOLY CREPE (REVIEW)

I am a sucker for views. Give me good food and a good view and I am easily impressed. Holy Crepe gave me the best of both worlds. For a day that started off without a sense of direction, this was a perfect place to unwind and hit the reset button. Holy Crepe is in…

MURCHISON NATIONAL PARK 3/3

As most of you know, early morning game drives are the best! As per usual, we had to wake up super early, get ready and have breakfast despite sleeping late the previous night chitchatting for hours. We checked out of Pakuba Lodge at 6:30am and started our game drive. Since we didn’t have a tour…
