30 random things about me

Someone asked me to tell more about  myself beyond what I share on the blog. To just get to know me. It is abit beyond what I feel comfortable doing, but no harm in doing it. So here is a tiny bit of who I am: 30 things about me.


  1. I am Diana Kaluhi daughter of Adagala.
  2. I like cleaning and arranging (a bit obsessively) and like to do so when I wanna relax or streamline my thought process. Is that strange? I think not 🙂
  3. I am always on time. When I say 10.30 a.m, I actually mean it; not a minute later or hours later. I do not understand how people can be comfortable with constantly being late. I do not partake in ‘African Timing’ which these days is somewhat a badge of honor.. no!
  4. Everyday is my favorite day.
  5. Positive comments power me up. But negative comments power me too since I channel that and use it as motivation . If you tell me i cant do something or i’m not good enough, I take it as a challenge and go ahead and do it. And more often than not, i surpass expectations.
  6. I am very private. I am very picky about what i share on my blog and anywhere else and try to keep it below 2 % of my life after careful thought of exactly what I am sharing. I think what makes moments special is keeping them sacredly intimate as opposed to broadcasting them to the universe.
  7. I am very particular about how my things look. For example, my Clothes have to be arranged according to category, then according to color and according to shade.
  8. Laughter of and Hugs from small children fill my heart with so much joy. I think they are the most fun age group to hang around.
  9. I am a strong advocate for environmental conservation and cleanliness. I hope to be among the people who will help make Kenya clean and green. And this change has to consciously start with each individual. Be part of the solution, not the problem.
  10. I am very opinionated and find it very easy to speak my mind. I try keep my arguments as objective as possible.
  11. I am slim by this country’s standards (32-26-36) despite being a huge foodie.And I totally love it!!! My weight is the most constant number in my life currently.
  12. I may not look like it but I am a rock girl.
  13. I am an introverted extrovert. I fit in both of those extremes seamlessly. I enjoy meeting new people, making new friends and networking but I also like just eating out by myself. I can be the most talkative or the most quiet depending on the feel of the crowd. I feel so confident and energized talking in front of large groups of people but I also enjoy and intimate hushed-down conversation.
  14. In general, I am a homebody.
  15. I find it so hard to ask for help. I first try all options on my own then when all else fails, I ask for help.
  16. I am a very good saver or a very frugal spender.
  17. I enjoy learning new things and this makes me do things on my own. Instead of paying someone to do something for me, I will learn it and do it on my own (unless its something like performing an operation on my appendix or like landing a rocket on an asteriod).
  18. Chocolate, and chapo are the SI unit of all edible things. Ugali is yummy too.
  19. I have struggled with being overly anxious in the past when things do not go as planned but I have successfully embraced the ‘Its never that serious’ school of thought and become a lot calmer nowadays. #TypeApersonalityProblems
  20. I can write backwards with my left hand…. Just kidding
  21. I want to see as much of the world as I can. Not to live in another country, but just travel and still call Kenya home.
  22. I feel best in soft, feminine, flirty clothes and colors. I own just 3 pairs of jeans which I rarely wear.
  23. I am not a Grammer nazi. I make too many typos to be one anyway :D. As long as you understood what the other person is trying to say, I do not think its important to school strangers on the internet over the difference between ‘their’ and ‘there’. There are bigger things to fuss over.
  24. I am a huge romantic.
  25. I am more into moments, effort, memories made and thoughtfulness other than money spent on me. But that does not mean I would’t appreciate a gift once in a while.
  26. I remember dates and faces very well. but i am not good with names.
  27. I did German in high school (did not quite like it) and Japanese In University as part of my BCom degree. I liked Japanese and hope to polish up on it as I go along.
  28. White Roses are my fave.
  29. I am not a chef, not a cook, not a caterer.I am just a girl who likes cooking and blogging about it.
  30. I do whatever I like. As long as its not immoral or illegal, I seriously follow my heart and listen to my gut.

And that’s just  the tip of the iceberg. I hope we get to know each other as we go along.

  11. I think you are trying totally cool in my book.id definitely love to learn from the Learning from you.

  12. I am totally with you on time etiquette. I don’t understand how someone would repeatedly arrive late to meetings and be proud about it. I find it rather disrespectful. I follow you on Instagram now let me follow the blog.
