Spanish films have recently made a breakthrough into Kenyan screens. Netflix provides a wide variety to pick from and thanks to the English subtitles and audio, anyone can watch them. Whether you view them for entertainment or to master the language, these films will get you hooked! They exude drama, mystery, suspense and very intriguing plot twists that leave the viewers wanting more seasons.

It is also a great way to learn Spanish. I, personally, know a few words I can show off with when the need arises. It is quite a simple language to learn and within a year you will be able to patch up some sentences.

Here are some of my favorite Spanish series;

Money Heist

This was the series that drew our attention to Spanish films. It involves a criminal mastermind who desires to pull off the biggest heist ever recorded. He recruits a group of eight people who at the time are going through tough moments and have nothing to lose. He prepares them for the heist by creating lessons on strategies and tactics they will employ to rob the Royal Mint in Spain. The four-season series is themed with love, betrayal, family, and drama. Spoiler, one of the characters will seriously annoy you.

Elite

Elite, set in a high school plot, revolves around a murder mystery. Now I don’t know if it is just me but there’s something about movies in a school setting. There is some sort of relatability to them. So, if you are into this too, elite is the best series for you. Some students receive a scholarship to join a high-end school and they have to try and fit in. We see the class differences and the culture shock that comes with moving into a new school. One of the elites is murdered and the police work around investigating the case.

Locked up

Locked up is like a Spanish rendition of Orange is the New black but (in my opinion) better. The main character, Macarena, is set up by her lover for fraud and goes to a high-security prison to serve her term. She has to adapt to the new prison life where she makes friends and foes. Her biggest enemy, Zulema, tries to make her life miserable while there. The series casts Nairobi and inspector Sierra from Money heist who have become familiar faces on Kenyan screens.

Sky Rojo

This series has all the drama you could ask for. It starts off with a club setting filled with prostitutes pimped to men who visit the club to find pleasure they can’t get from their normal lives. There is a scuffle between three of the girls and the club owner that ends in him fighting for his life. Assuming he is dead, the girls flee in the hope of finding freedom. The series unfolds with the girls having to run for their lives from the pimp who they come to find out did not die.

The club

The series revolves around a group of rich kids who sell the drug MDMA at a sports club. The business starts with the main actor trying to step up to his father and show that he can make a living for himself. He creates and launches a dating app in a but the biggest hit in the party turns out to be drugs. This is where the idea of selling drugs comes up. He recruits some of his friends and in the onset the business booms till they meet with other drug lords and also get into trouble with the law and their families.

Unfortunately, it’s not every year your birthday will find you balling. This does not mean you should not enjoy this day to the fullest. It’s your birthday! And it happens only once a year. The good news however, is that you do not need lots of money, or any money at all to celebrate your birthday. Here’s how you can still make it special and memorable;

Picnic

Prepare meals you can pack easily, buy a bottle of your favorite drink and have a picnic setup. You can invite your friends or family for this and have them bring food for the picnic. This gives you an all-you-can-eat buffet without even trying! The trick to picnics is a serene environment and a great view.

Bake a cake

When you really think about it, baking a cake is not hard. I did this for my 21st birthday and it turned out really good. I labelled myself ‘chef’ for a whole month and baked many more cakes afterwards. Thanks to YouTube, you can find many simple recipes to start you off. The decorating part is the best!

Movie marathon

Drop everything and have a movie marathon by yourself or with friends. Have a lazy day and binge your favorite series while snacking to some pizza, popcorn, crisps and wine!

Window shopping

Manifest on the good things you would have bought for yourself on your birthday by window-shopping at your favorite store. Check out the prices, create a wish list and save up for next time. You might even find something affordable and get yourself a gift.

Game night

Game nights are the ultimate broke party to-do-list. Make a list of interesting games you and your friends could play and invite them over for a party. They can bring snacks and extra games to make it more fun. This is a great way to spend time with your friends on your birthday.

Charity

Helping others comes with a feeling of fulfillment and peace. You get to know you made a difference in someone’s life and this, really, is a mood you want for your birthday. Organize things you do not use and give them out to the needy. You can also attend charity events and help plant trees, make an environment clean and spend time with other volunteers.

Make a gratitude list

Getting to celebrate your birthday is a blessing in itself. Make a gratitude list acknowledging the good things and people you have in your life. Take note of milestones you have reached, and give a big thank you to God. It is also a great time to set goals for the new age and year.
