Nurturing My Green Fingers

At long last I have succeeded in nurturing my green fingers and have produce from the garden. Once you learn to grow your own vegetables it’s a whole other level of achieved satisfaction and just a great feeling that you were dedicated enough to not let them wither away. It is also nice to just…

7th Sense Fine Dining at The Quorum

I brushed up on my table manners expeditiously the minute I got invited to experience the 7th Sense at the Quorum. To be honest fine dining does cost you a pretty penny but it is one of those meals that you will never shut up about once you have a taste. Now that lockdown restrictions…

Photography: Nature Macro

Although we are currently not able to physically meet for the Camera Chat Group Lusaka meetings still once a month via Zoom and submissions are made online for now to be safe. Last month’s assignment was on Nature Macro Photography, which is a unique form of photography that involves photographing small objects to make them look…

Exploring Kundalila Falls

Zambia has got so many waterfalls it is hard to keep count and even harder to find all of them but someone called Quentin Allen did just that. He went round and detailed all this in his book “Guide to Little Known Waterfalls of Zambia”, it has all the names, distances, which provinces they are…

Nkondo the Eco-Friendly Campsite

This trip was a very educative and informative one, admittedly I knew nothing about the wetlands and…

Dinner the Quorum Way

I was a bit nervous about going out to eat but very glad that I did because I had a good time and of course my first outing in four months had to be done in style at The Quorum. This swanky spot only just recently opened their doors and the only place opened for…

For the Love Of Tea

As it gets a bit wintery here I reach for a cuppa and I am reminded that one of the wonderful things about having tea is that there is always time for a par-tea! I’m not a tea aficionado but love the stuff because it is a no fuss drink all you have to do…

Monkey Pools Revisited

I can not believe that it has been a couple of years since my last visit to Monkey Pools and cabin fever had me yearning for a walk in the greater outdoors, so it was time to revisit the place. Located on leopards hill road within housing estate MukaMunya which in itself is situated at…

Winds of Change

One thing that people in a position of power need to understand is that their words and actions have much greater consequences especially in a world with social media. With everything happening in the world today it is important to find a voice and speak up against issues that are not right because the truth…
