Are there things you take or hear of and they just take you back many years? For me this drink does just that. It takes me back to my Uni years in Melbourne, when I was young, wild and free. I miss those days, when all I had to worry about was money for drinking and money to buy food for trying out new things. When my biggest stress was making rent and buying transport tickets. Those days I would work and feel that all my money was going back to paying bills not knowing that years later I would be dealing with the real thing.

Now that I run a business, I have to pay VAT at 16% every darn month failure which I will be hit with a Ksh 10, 000 fine, on top of that I learnt, recently, that each year one has to pay corporate tax of 30% of my profit. WTF!!! that’s a bit too much money to be giving to the government I think. I would much rather go on a food safari like the one we are organizing to Zanzibar later in the year than give the money that helps pay out politicians. But since I have no choice I better start saving for the trip. Hope you are saving too.


Happy Drinking
