"I had some leg cramps, heal spurs, due to standing for long hours the body wants some sleep and the mind wants to keep going. but I told myself that it's not over until it's over,"  the Kenyan chef says.

After the cooking was over she had fatigue, swelled legs and she could barely walk due to standing for long hours. 

The Chef also confessed that she was hallucinating when she was cooking and that she told her managers to keep on talking to her so that she could stay alert.

 "I told my team that I might end up hallucinating and lose focus, I told them that they should make some noise and keep an eye on me so that I can stay alert. When the musicians came to support me and they sang I was hallucinating that I was in a concert," Chef Maliha continued.
