The Uganda you will never see on TV.

SpicyTraveller.com

Uganda “The pearl of Africa” is one of the most beautiful countries in the world. I am not saying this because I am Ugandan but this becomes crystal clear the moment you start travelling around. For so many years Africa in general has always been misrepresented by the western media, trying to make it seem a desparate place only full of ghettos and sick children and the problem is Africans have not written their side of the story and for god’s sake what would you expect if every media house is looking for that next hot cake story? only lies. Here I am to write my own Ugandan story as an African man.

This summer I had a longer holiday so I decided to go on an adventurous vacation back home in Uganda after some time being away and to my surprise I discovered a beautiful, beautiful …

Boy or Man?

Hello, am an ordinary man with no exceptions fro others, not a hundred percent perfect either but analyzing these differences between a boy and a man placed me in between lines though i had to put up something for this second last day of #UgBlogweek. Dedicate this master piece to all the ladies in the house, just to do your checklist and categorize where your man or boy falls.
A BOY keeps a password on his cell phone while a MAN is confident enough to say “baby can u answer
that for me”!!
A BOY runs the streets & chill with his friends while a MAN is enjoying time with his woman planning ahead for their future!
A BOY complains about spending too much time with his woman, a MAN plans vacations & getaways because he is wise enough to notice tomorrow aren’t promised!
A BOY has pride after arguments, a MAN has heart & emotions, A BOY
beats on his woman, a MAN massages & caresses his woman!
A BOY screams gold-digger!!! for the simple things a woman want, a MAN knows it’s his responsibility.
A BOY tells his woman all the things he does wrong; a MAN acknowledges his woman’s hard work!
A BOY tells his woman she is pretty, & a MAN tells his woman she is beautiful!
A BOY will read this & think this is about him but a MAN will read this & thoroughly acknowledge what he needs to fix in his relationship.

My 11 Whatsapp messengers

11 whatsapp disciples

11 whatsapp disciples

Hello there, thanks for stopping by. Today am sharing on these different funny people on my WhatsApp list, i couldn’t keep this alone to myself .
1. Someone on his status is “Sleeping” since 3 days. He’s probably dead.
2. Someone is “Driving” since 5 days! I guess he hasn’t reached Dubai!
3. Someone’s status is “Happy” since 1 month. Living in Paradise I guess?
4. Someone is always “Available”. How free are you?
5. From first day their status is, “Hey there! I’m using WhatsApp” I Know, that’s why you’re on my list!
6. Someone writes “Urgent calls only”. Don’t get it… Are you in the police or ambulance service?
7. Someone says, “Can’t talk, WhatsApp only”. Dude then throw away your phone, you’re not using the phone’s primary function.
8. Someone is “At the movies” for the past 6 weeks. Either he owns the theater or sells popcorn there, just guessing.
9. Someone’s own “At school”. What the hell are we gonna do about your being in school, save us the story, it’s all yours not for us.
10. Someone puts “Busy” for 2 months and a week. She must be very busy probably “picking beans” or breaking melons.
11. This pisses off most, “Battery about to die” for 3 consecutive months. Should we contact UMEME concerning the power situation of your house or buy you new generator?

Yours truly…A guy who cares…feel free to leave a comment!!!!!

Life is not a competition

Life is no competition

Life is no competition

Well, just to remind us that we are not in any Competition with anyone if you are daring enough you will find this interesting to you, you may consider this as And so what? part 2.

You were born in a first class hospital, I was delivered at home, we both survived. You went to a private school and I went to a razz government school, we both ended in the same University. You woke up from the bed and I woke from the floor, we both had a peaceful night rest.
Your outfits are all expensive, mine are all simple and cheap, we both still cover our nakedness. You ate fried rice and roasted chicken, I ate “dodo” and posho but we both still ate to our satisfaction.
You ride on Lexus,jeep, Range Rover, G Wagon, Hummer Jeep and I use public transport but we still got to our various destination. You may be reading this blog from your Sony xperia, BBZ10, Q10, Iphone6+ and I typed it with my Tecno H7, we still see the same thing
Your wedding was at some fancy five star hotel in Dubai mine at Makerere University main hall in Uganda, we both wore a ring and climbed the same mountain. Life is not a competition and there are different ways to get a lot of things done, different lanes all leading to the same destination. Just because your neighbor is doing things faster does not mean you are failing.

Content makes poor men rich, discontent makes rich men poor-Benjamin Franklin

Happiness doesn’t come from having everything, but from making the best out of what you have, it’s all about how you see yourself. Stay on your own lane and forge ahead..

Sincerely yours!

Just a teenage thing

Balancing: 
The art of having ones trouser hanging low close to the middle of the bottoms like they are about to fall off. It leaves parents furious but teens feel cool about it. For girls, the hem lines don’t stop rising. I wonder where they will end, with strings? May be!!!!

Flossing. 
Teens love showing off just because of wanting to fit in every generation. There is this shawty whose story became juicy and irresistible for me to hear “my brother was playing his psp, he got pissed and threw it, it hit the dads I pad which smashed mummy’s PDA that hit the Microsoft tablet which sunk into the aquarium, the aquarium hit the home theater”
The story goes on to be more interesting and convertible, knocking the range rover sport, the Jacuzzi into the behind yard that ended into the swimming pool. Don’t bother asking how, she was just showing off yet we haven’t mentioned the iPhone series hanging at the garden city or dressing up in Sylvia Owori’s latest designed cloth, well for boys putting on that All black everything Nike snicker bought online.

Wacky hairstyle. 
Some used to call it Swazi others “stamina’ (during my high school times) and now upgraded to “Mohawk”  parents criticize those innovative, dynamic and self-loving teenage boys with corn rows ‘mbu’ the hairstyle is for girls, bisexuals and gays.

Weird bad music” 
As parents love to term them, dance hall, rap, rock, crank hits, name it the list is endless teens like such beats because they hit hot number one positions at the billboard bangers around the world that’s the music teens die for.

WTF *watsaap twitter facebook craze

just FriendsThank God for the social media craze, that came along with the rise of the battle of the latest gadgets,phones and electronics as these are becoming the cigarettes of the 21st century not only to the teens but all ages, i was surprised that my mum now days also uses memes as profile pictures…i was left wondering what happened to the gap between teens and elders, in this world were conversations become texts,arguments becoming phone calls and feelings becoming status updates.

Well most parents and other elders find such things unbearable to them, but that’s nature there is time to sing, laugh, read and rest, time to become a free-styler so that you are able to do things without parents questioning you. So I think its really just a teenage thing to balance, floss, having wacky hairstyles, wtf and listening to ‘weird bad music”
