Such Is Life


I woke up this morning and as I look out of the window, I see some guy on my roof trying to reach for something. I was startled!




'What do you want?!' I screamed. Wishing that very moment that I had a gun.

Nothing. He doesn't respond. Just silence! And he is grinning quite like the cheshire cat.

It took all of three minutes for me to realize that this was actually only a billboard next to my digz.



Advertising the Orange phone network!

Aah. So I forget about the incident but on my way to town... what do I see?



Blow me don! Yes... another billboard!



Come on... now that is what should have been next to my window!



With that tag line of Orange: Together we can do more!



Yes... such is life!

You don't always get the billboard you want next to your house!

enyewe that placement for the orange billboard, salaale!

the one for cellulite, i would spend a little more time in the "shade" of that one than is entirely necessary...

No worries, you could actually rent that billboard space for some time and put the ad you want. May be expensive though. Better invite the cellulite gal to your place for dinner or so.

@ Shiko_Msa... Happy New Year. I was thinking something along a five-some... so I wouldn't just choose one girl!

Hahaha very nice.

As of the cost of putting one, I called Magnate after seeing those smaller billboards to ask how much it would be. I was told it would cost KES 245,000 a month. So am trying to imagine how much these big ones cost
