It’s My birthday @ Kilimanjaro Hyatt Regency Hotel Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. 21st Oct 2012

Mama Amika


It was a beautiful day! To wake up on my birthday in this beautiful place was amazing. I started my day by going to the gym, then after a shower, headed for breakfast. Awww… even now when I think about it i feel like smiling. There is a big different between civilized places and “other” places. Can you believe that after other people knew it’s my birthday most of them after they finished their breakfast passed by my table to wish me a happy birthday. I was so touched. And thanks to lovely Johan and the staff for surprising me with cake and singing “Happy Birthday” too! It’s a shame I was late to grab my camera and take some pictures, but I was so happy.

This reminded me of my last birthday when the immigration officer in Singapore (most of whom as you know are very serious) after checking my passport, she looked at me and wished me a happy birthday with big smile then she wished me a wonderful day. Now that’s what I call civilized!

After my breakfast I had a chance to enjoy the hotel, starting with a swim in the pool, then went to the Spa which was incredible. I do love Spas :) Later I checked out and got ready to go to the airport because I was travelling the same day. Thanks to my friend Kay and her son Ryan and his friend Jayden for the ride to the airport – much love to you guys. Not to forget my baby sis Tina, my mtoto Flora and mama mdogo. Thanks you guys and Johan, you’re the best! :))

One Night Stay @Kilimanjaro Hyatt Regency Hotel Dar, Tanzania. Oct 2012

Mama Amika! More kgs after 3weeks, bongo kiboko lol!


This was my last night in Dar es Salaam and since the next day was my birthday, what a treat it was to wake up in a lovely hotel like this.  Too bad I checked in late though after spending almost 6 hours at the hair salon. I couldn’t leave the salon any earlier though because it was my last day and I needed my hair to be done. After the salon I rushed to get to the hotel, and guess what? Somehow I forgot my purse at the salon! Yikes! So after checking in I had to rush all the way back to Mwenge to pick it up. By the time I got back to the hotel it was quite late, so I just took a few photos around the hotel before heading off to bed. It was so relaxing. I fell asleep dreaming of seeing my wonderful husband soon :))
