The Vietnamese Kitchen at Nothing Like It Hardy

Posted on March 6th, 2018

The Vietnamese are here… cooking, cutting, colouring, contouring – its all happening at Nothing Like It Hardy! Cut & colour? Some microdermabrasion or a tattoo? A blow-dry which will make you feel a million dollars? Why not throw in a Vietnamese foot massage, and top it all off by some delicious Vietnamese food?  I went for an early supper to try out the latest venture of the Vietnamese “gang” at Nothing Like It last week. In between cutting and colouring, blow drying, foot massaging and tattooing, the resourceful David is managing a Vietnamese kitchen with Chef Luam. The food is incredibly tasty, simple but authentic, fresh and healthy. We had some Vietnamese “pies” to start with, deep fried but filled with delicious vegetables and served with yummy dipping sauces. For main course our party tried different dishes, from curries to stir fries to Nam Pho soup with noodles and beef. … Continue reading

Scammed – the perils of super-fast mobile money transfers by Africa Expat Wives Club

Posted on February 28th, 2018

Warning: You too could be conned… So last week (during half term) I was scammed. Or more correctly, a member of our domestic staff was scammed…which then hit me in the pocket. It happened just as I was piling granny, granddad and 2 slow moving teenagers into the car to get to a hair appointment. Jared crossed the garden, on the phone (a pretty snazzy Samsung smart phone I noticed) – looking very concerned. Frightened even. It turns out he was on the receiving end of a panicked phone call initiated by a man ringing on behalf of Jared’s son’s school. It went something like this “I’m calling for your son’s teacher (named X) as he doesn’t have credit. Your son (named Y) is in Kenyatta hospital, he’s had a very bad accident at school (school name Z), he’s broken his leg badly and also hurt his head. And there’s … Continue reading
