Hello Good People, did you enjoy your week and are you ready for the weekend? Most importantly are you ready for what we have selected for you this weekend? You might want to decide fast. We live in a dangerous world. If you see a chance to be happy, you have to fight for it, so that later you have no regrets…if your answer is yes, then let us carry on.

Isn’t it funny how almost every movie about the future depict how technologically advanced the human race became and how they came to create a computer that could think for itself? You may remember that events in the terminator showed that by the year 2029 the world would be a wasteland with the last surviving humans fighting the machines with very little success, then again to any person who was born in 1984, which was the year the movie was released, the year 2029 might have seemed pretty far and the possibility very real.

wwry-final-poster-updatedBorrowing a note from the aforementioned franchise, The Braeburn Garden Estate School will be staging a school production this Friday with the rocking title ‘We will Rock You’
The Musical tells of an age where all singing, musical instruments and any expression of creativity are banned by a massive corporation called Globalsoft which sends computer generated music to all people on the planet. Like any great and engaging production there is knowledge of the existence of some form of deliverance, in this case,’The Lost Texts’ which talks of music in yonder years. To complete the mix, so that this play is made worth watching and your time, is a group of rebels who strive to bring down the corporation by finding and using these ‘Lost Texts’

To find out the fate of the futuristic world whose musical fate rests in the hands of a group of rebels, make your way to the Braeburn Garden Estate school by 7:00 p.m. Tickets for the musical are retailing at Kshs. 600 for adults and Kshs. 300 for students. The tickets are on sale at Braeburn Garden Estate.

bridegroom-for-saleAnyone in search of a Bridegroom? Seriously…are you looking for a Bridegroom? Word on the street is that there is a Bridegroom on sale at the Alliance Francaise and the people you need to see for this extraordinary sale is the group from Heartstrings Entertainment.
Termed as ‘unforgivably hilarious’ Bridegroom for Sale, is a hit play directed by Sammy Mwangi .
Not much of the plot is given away, but then all you need to know is that you are in for a good treat. The play will be staged this weekend at 3:00 p.m and 6:30 p.m, all that you are required to pay to gain entrance to see the play is Kshs. 500 only.
I wonder which one of you in attendance will have lady luck on her side.

Sumo_Do_Sumo_DontWould you rather findout ‘ To be or not to be‘ or’ Sumo Do, Sumo Don’t’…if you don’t mind, might I suggest we look into Sumo this time round?
In order to graduate from college in a timely manner, and to gain the job waiting for him due to his family connections, Shuhei must join the school’s sumo team to please his professor. Shuhei and the other reluctant sumo wrestlers on the team are inspired by the professor’s determination into doing their best for the school…
What you just read was a synopsis of the film that the Japan information and culture center (in Upper Hill) will be airing this weekend on the 29th of March. The synopsis, doesn’t give much away and rightfully so, otherwise what would be the point of watching the movie if all the suspense and thrill of discovery is taken away from it?
One other strong indication that the movie would be worth watching is the fact that it was chosen as Best Film at the Japan Academy Prize ceremony
Gates to the JICC open at 1:30 p.m and the film starts at 2:00 p.m.
Entry is free. For more information, contact jinfocul@nb.mofa.go.jp


Start-up-FB21In bid of breaking the pattern that you may have probably noticed in this week’s post, we thought about winding up this week’s selection with something a little different.
We all, at some point in our lives, get the entrepreneurial bug and venture into fields that we are interested in or fields that we know will yield good returns to the investment we put in.
This weekend an opportunity to meet likeminded people on the entrepreneurial path, has been advanced to all of you. This will take place at 88 mph, 4th Floor, Piedmont Plaza, Ngong Road at an event dubbed the Start Up Mixer. It will be an event in which you get to engage the event’s guest entrepreneurs comprising of Martin Nielsen: Co – Founder Mdundo, Muthoni Ndonga:Founder Blankets & Wine and Odanga Madung and Sameer Ahmed: Founders Odipodev, in informal conversations and get to a firsthand account of all the challenges they faced, triumps and lessons they picked up along the way during their start up phase.
You will also get to swap stories and mingle with some of the best and brightest of today’s innovators. All this takes place on the 28th of March from 7:00 to 9:30 p.m and entry to the event is totally and completely free, so save the date.

We here at the Mvuli Hotels truly wish you a lovely weekend and when you can, do drop in and say hi, won’t you? or keep up with us by following us on twitter and by liking our Facebook page.
Enjoy your weekend and at the end of the day, let there be no excuses, no explanations, no regrets as we truly hope that one day you will profess this:
I would alter nothing of the journey made for it is in this road travelled that the sweetest of lessons are learnt
