It’s Not Even my Birthday, Cake Cake Cake!(in Rihanna’s Voice :D )

No, it’s not my birthday!

But I couldn’t help to grab myself (well, it was technically meant for someone else) this beautiful peace of art. Yes, I consider great foods as art! The time, love and perfection it takes to make it come to life totally qualifies it as art.

Funny though, I am really not a pastries person. I don’t like baked things that also involve wheat, I guess it’s from having too much of it as a child. But once in a while, a piece or 2 does it.

This is probably the first cake I have had in 2019! Crazy Right? I’d not be surprised if the next one will be around the Christmas season.

You know what this reminds me off? Rihana’s Birthday Cake Song, And if you know her well, you definitely know this is not the kind of cake she had in mind, know what I mean? 😀

Anyway guys, I hope you are having an amazing May. Just a few days and we’ll be in June! Can you believe that? Also, if you’d be gracious to share your fave cakes that would be great! Added bonus for those with photo 🙂

Time to Kick Start this Steemy Day! See you Around!

Spread Love, Not War| Sunday Funday with A..

IMG_2918.JPG

Though my feet are still hurting from so much walking and carrying the most heavy baby there probably is in my family, I’d still say we had a pretty awesome Sunday afternoon. Sometimes I can be so random that I don’t even understand where that side of me crawls from.

Kinda woke up very moody and grumpy today to be honest. Not sure why, maybe it is as a result of so much build up of events, and so, I wanted to do something random and out of the norm. I decided to play my nephews mother(I prefer best aunt ever) and took him out to the mall to play.

For the better part I just sat and watched him drive away his toy car and race with other kids. I sort of was jealous at how much fun it can be to be young & carefree, not that kids would know, heck, neither did we know when we were at that age, but they really have it good.

It was also a great time to mingle with other young mums and just marvel at how effortlessly they seemed to be doing their roles. I don;t know how they honestly do it. One week with my nephews feels like an years worth of hard work on most weeks. It takes so long before I can get back to my momentum once he leaves. Especially catching up witj my sleep and resting my bones from all the running around, carrying him around and just basically doing anything & everything he pleases!See? It’s certainly great to be a kid!

It did however help that the sun was out and the skies were clear, sometimes the universe does conspire to ensure we have the best of our days. How beautiful does this look?

Besides Adrian crying cause he didn’t want to leave, I’d say we had a pretty decent day. Sometimes I feel I need to sacrifice my fresh air in the suburbs to appreciate I don’t have to deal with all the pollution and carbon monoxide emissions in the city center. Today was one of those days 😀

How’s Your Sunday Been? Hope as lovely as it could have been. If you enjoy this kind of random, fun photography content, then do check my personal blog for more. See You on the Next Post.

Kenyan Wildlife Experience at Nairobi Animal Orphanage| Imagery Post

There’s just something about being surrounded by wildlife in my low moments that just brings me solace. It’s not something I’d have discovered without this amazing blockchain. I never would have been so interested in photography to the extent of getting out of my comfort zone to go out and do the necessary.

I spent a good part of my past Sunday at The Nairobi Animal Orphanage just mingling and observing wildlife. For those of you that are not new to my STEEM blog, you might recall I visited this place sometime last year and drop 1 or 2 vlogs about it. While I did manage to capture both some photography and video content, this time was solely to take my new canon M50 on a test drive, and I must say, it was rather fun and fulfilling.

Besides the plenty of lions that seem to have taken over the orphanage, I did manage to capture some buffalo shots, leopards, monkeys, cheetah,warthogs, the ultimately dangerous African Wild-dog, some African wild cats, some birds of some sort , hyenas, and so on..

Yes, I said dogs and cats, some of you may think that’s not necessary or such a biggy, but trust me, the original African Wild dogs and cats can be extremely dangerous.

Not Sure why this African dog needs so much water, more like a swimming pool or just it’s way to kill boredom. Whatever the case, it seemed pretty happy about it. This is definitely one of those animals I’d never want to come across with either in the mountains or the African Jungles. There are books, myths and beliefs written about them, the sort you’d hear about a kid and pee on yourself all week. I kid you not.

And of course where there’s a dog there’s a cat. Isn’t that why they call it raining cats & dogs? 😀

More of the Cat family…

Most of you probably love this kind of print on your clothes right? I can see why, it’s beautiful af.

One thing I gotta say though, the grid kind of made it hard to take proper photos. You totally can’t compare this with taking photos in the open African jungle. Remember those Masai Mara posts I did a few weeks ago? So much better! Also the animals at the orphanage are a bit far from the fence, so without a good zoom lens it becomes hard to get great shots.

I think I’ve done a couple of posts on Buffalos this past year. I had never seen a baby before, they are actually more calm and less angry unlike the adults who are always agitated and ready to strike at any given moment.

I’m gonna end this post here. I’m not a sucker for super long posts, plus I wanna make sure you guys come back for more tomorrow. Do you like the African wildlife or any kind of wildlife for that matter? Leave me a comment below.
