Stupid Questions in Kenya

“Can I ride the giraffe?”
“Can I eat a zebra?”
“Can I touch a cheetah?”

These are the questions that I kept asking the tour guide. All of his answers were ‘No’. They are wild animals.
I was imagining him thinking, “These Asians want to eat our animals!?”

Thor sa Kenya

The weekend before we went to Kenya, Atong, Mitch and I were booked to see Thor: Dark World.
“Excited na ako mag Thor mamaya,” Atong said.
“Bukas pa ang tour sa Kenya hindi mamaya,” Mitch corrected.
“Thor! Hindi Tour! Thor sa Kenya!? Hahaha!” Atong laughed.

Mga Hayup!

Maasai MaraWhile doing our Kenyan Animal Safari at Maasai Mara…

“Hayup!” I screamed at the Wildebeest.
“Panget,” Atong screamed at the Hyena.
“Mga hayop kayong lahat!”
“Kahayupan ang alam nyo.”
“Hayop! Hayop! Animal!” We kept screaming.

Mitch finally told us, “Huwag n’yo naman isigaw na ganun. Parang napaka-offensive.”
“Hon, hayop naman talaga sila.”

Kenya Now, North Korea Later

“Nag-iba talaga ang tingin ko sa Kenya after natin makarating dito,” Atong told Mitch and I. All three of us went to Kenya last month.
“Yung mga bali-balita talagang sensationalized news lang,” I answered. Referring to the West Gate incident, “Hindi naman buong Kenya any may gull..”
“Iba talaga pag pinuntahan mo ang lugar,” he capped his topic off.
“Kaya nga kami ni Mitch next namin na pupuntahan North Korea. Di naman totoo yung mga bali-balita,” I answered.
“AY NAKU! NEXT TIME IKAW NA LANG TALAGA PUPUNTA DUN,” Mitch screamed, “I love you but I love my life.”

Visit North Korea

Kenya Wake Up Call

Since our accommodation was a tent-type cottage (zippable) without phones, I wondered how the hotel staff would wake us up when they asked, “What time would you like your wake up call be?”
“How are you going to Wake us?” I asked them, “Slap us?”
The Kenyan staff laughed, “Yes. Slap you!”

The Kenya Plan

IndexMaraSunsetAtong, Ronald, Mitch and I were planning to see Africa’s Big 5 on November. We were planning to visit Kenya.
Unfortunately, The Westgate Nairobi Attack happened.

“Hon, di na tayo tutuloy sa Kenya. Nasa news na magulo sila ngayon,” I told Mitch.
“Nakita ko rin yun. Ayoko nga sabihin na may kudeta baka isipin n’yo kinokontra ko plano natin,” she shared.

“Ambait naman n’ya!” Z screamed after sharing Mitch’s remarks.
“Oo nga eh. Safety na n’ya nakasalalay sa Kenya pero ‘di n’ya kokontrahin wag lang s’ya magmukhang kontrabida,” I told her.

I guess I’ll postpone singing, “Sa Kenya pa rin babalik, sigaw ng damdamin!”
