Like a Girl:Always

Mumbi Shokey


Last week I had the pleasure of attending a very warm dinner with other bloggers at Le Palanka, courtesy of  Always Kenya.I had a s light idea of what it would be like because i had already watched this advert on you tube.Every time I’d watch it though, I was reminded of how girls are treated tender from the younger years. When we fall, we are held and our tears are wiped because we’re soft.When we are moody, everyone assumes it’s that time of the month.When we are taking time to dress up, the men wait impatiently but they know we can’t help it.We are girls.

But I am so damn proud to be a girl,a woman!I can do things thrice as good as my brothers.I can change bulbs, hammer nails into doors, push the car when it won’t start you name it!Not forgetting that can I cook, talk and…

A bar tender was made to be the best at two things, making a mean cocktail and being a part time “psychologist”. This career choice is a talent to any individual and clear that their taste buds are in check. Just like any other talent it needs to be nurtured into something greater that will have your name jolted down in history books.

On the 2nd of  July Bacardi Limited, the world’s largest privately held spirits company, is leading the way to simplify cocktail-making with two new platforms designed to make it easy for Kenyan consumers and bartenders to make cocktails.
