HOW DO YOU EAT BIG MEAT SERVED AT WEDDINGS

At home right now but thinking about something funny that happened at this wedding. I was served a plate of fried rice, jollof rice, moimoi and a big piece of sumptuous looking cow meat. I ate my rice and moimoi but didn't know to eat my meat. I didn't want to use my hands to tear it apart as:

1. I couldn't afford to soil my makeup.
2. I didn't see any serviette on the table. 
3. I had no wipe to clean my hands afterwards.

So I stared at my meat while it was gloating that I couldn't eat it. (You never jam... Na me and you today, I said to myself.) I looked at hubby and he was eating his last bit of meat. I just whispered to him to help 'dice' my meat. His teeth is actually sharper than mine lolz. DH turned my big piece of meat to asun, and I ate the whole damn thing while sipping my drink.

PS: Nigerian caterers please cut the meat you served at weddings in small bits if you know you won't provide table knives.

WHEN YOU HAVE HAD ENOUGH

Don't push me to the wall or I will give it to you. Don't tell me to stop because I won't. 

Hot I will give it to you as it burns me. 

Raw and dirty you must have it.

You definitely don't want me when you are not ready. 

Don't say I didn't warn you.

Shout out to haters who like to run their mouths. Love you still...you inspire me.

Have you sown seeds that worth the miracles you ask for?

On my way to work, I said a short prayer “God please let someone bless me with a miracle phone”. This was after my phone broke. To my amazement, I got an instant response. 

“Have you sown seeds that worth the miracles you ask for?”
“How do you mean?” I asked my conscious in surprise, “That I don't deserve a gift phone?”
"I only asked if you have sown seeds that worth the miracles you ask for?" my conscience answered.

Wow, it hit me like a bomb!

Have I given a 100% on my job? Have I been generous to the less privileged and beggars I see on the street? Have I been sensitive to the plight of those close to me? Did I offer kind words when I could?

All these questions and more flooded my mind...before you get frustrated that God hasn't given you that which you ask for, look inwards.

CHANGE BEGINS WITH ME-Featured post

My article 'My version of change begins with me' was featured on Hello Naija. I want to thank PMB for the inspiration and God for the talent.

Article: I cooked chicken stew and vegetable soup on
Thursday, and planned to eat rice and stew with
fried plantain on Friday. On my way home from
work, I decided to buy plantain. I had just N1500
with me and I also wanted to buy Dano milk and
Indomie, so I stopped by a superstore.
The price of Dano milk had risen from N550 to
N750 and indomie as we all know is now N50
from N35. I wanted 6 packs i.e. N300, both
totaling N1050. I had N450 change left to buy
the plantain which was N400; but I was angry,
because I noticed that since the era of change, I
never came back with change. I always spend all
the money I take shopping. Sometimes, I’m even
tempted to use my debit card. (I have stopped
using POS machines so I don’t clean my account
in a swipe.)
In order not to feel bad since ‘change starts with
me,’ I started justifying why plantain wasn’t
necessary to eat with rice. “Rice is
carbohydrate. Ripe plantain is carbohydrate, and
I’ll have to fry it, which is not so healthy. In
Nigeria, our meals are mostly carbohydrates, so I
should cut down on excess carbs. No much
nutrient in the plantain sef . The chicken is high
in protein. Boiled egg is more nutritious.”
Chai ! See me talking to myself because of
change! Yes, boiled egg is more nutritious, but
haba, is it the once-in-a-while fried plantain that
would kill me? This change eh …

Functional or Fashionable?

Which do you consider when you want to purchase an item? Do think of its functionality or how fashionable it is? The best option is to consider both. I will never advise you to go for an archaic product because it is functional. But when you must choose one over the other, please go for functionality. I learnt the hard way.

I can be annoyingly clumsy with it comes to the way I handle my phone. I don’t know why, but my phone just loves dropping from my hand and crashing to the ground. I have been so lucky that my phone hasn’t suffered much damage except superficial scratches and cracks on the side of the phone.

Last week, I went to get a phone case to protect my phone from further damage, but the case given to me (one that would have been the best for me) wasn’t flashy. I wanted a phone case with glitters and jewels, you know, something fashionable and girly, which he didn’t have. So I didn’t buy any.

Unfortunately for me after 3 days, the witches and wizards from my village finally won. My phone fell from my hand to the tiled floor and had a fatal injury. Both screen and screen saver crashed, the phone refused to come on. Lights flashed from it like it was breathing its last breathe. Poor me! All my write-ups, my brainstorming, my pictures! Still in shock!
So purrlease people, (dragging the please in my American accent) if you must choose, choose functionality over fashion! Only if I could rewind the hands of time…

Be uniquely different, be you.

POEM ON FEAR

Sometimes I wish I could stab fear in the eye. It is so horrible. Many people have lived and died without attaining their full potential all because of fear. Fear you have a stronghold on humans.

Who created you? Where did come from? How did you come about?  Why do you exist? I hate you fear.

Gone are the days when you had a hold on me. I know better now. No more regrets because of you fear. I will live up to my God-given potential. There's no stopping me fear.

HAPPY NEW MONTH-JULY2017

Happy new month from princess and me! Heart-wrecking to cut her hair but we had to. The back hair just refused to grow and the look on her face anytime we comb her thick black full African hair, euphemism for 'hard to comb' gave me no choice. It should have been longer by now if she had my genes. 😜

HAPPY NEW MONTH and HAPPY FIRST SUNDAY in JULY to all our friends! Welcome to the second half year in 2017! MAY GOD ALMIGHTY GRANT US OUR HEARTS' DESIRES BEFORE THE YEAR RUNS OUT!

INSATIABLE WE ARE BUT GRATEFUL WE MUST BE

Humans are really insatiable. No situation is ever good enough, we always want more. The popular saying, 'you don't know what you've got until it is gone' still holds an ocean of water. I haven't lost anything so stop thinking...not even my virginity (that's a story for another day).

My job is pretty demanding; no break, no rest, under pressure most times, no time to think of self. I crave a job change, a career breakthrough, a bank breaking salary with lots of benefits. I crave more, so much more, I crave the best of the best. I am human, I am insatiable, I will always want more. It is normal.

Something strange happened to me during this short break, I missed work. (I missed work? OMG! I still cannot believe it!) I missed using my intellect to deal with colleagues and clients. I missed my workspace. I missed solving problems. Wow! A strange one for me!

However, I realized somethin from this, though we strive for more, we have to appreciate where we are and our little (or big) steps of progress. I took a moment to appreciate this demanding and tiring job of mine and it was refreshing. I needed a moment away from the job (as if it was gone) to be able to appreciate it more.

I will share some of the things I have learnt so far on my job. Not to make this post too long for impatient readers, I will continue in the next post. Take care fellas.

Not because it is picture perfect

Not all pictures are posted because they are exceptionally beautiful. Some are posted because of the memories they bring; the love they make you feel; the joy that envelops you when you look at them.

Sometimes I use my social media platforms as archives for good memories. My phone may get faulty or missing and I would lost most or all of my pictures. However, social media is reliable (well, unless the site crashes...we pray none does).

This picture is one of them. Not fancy, no make up or dress up...just me, my #beautifuldaughter and hubby sleeping peacefully behind us...posted just because it is filled with so much love. #goodmemories

My Quotes on Marriage

Marriage is not about finding the perfect person. It's about bringing out the best in the other person; thus making them perfect for you.

No man or woman can bring you happiness. If your purpose of getting married is to be happy, you are getting it all wrong.

A good marriage beats being single anytime.

I hope these quotes speak to someone! Feel free to use them but give credit.

Your opportunity to shine, don't miss it!

Did I just hear, "I'm goan shine when I'm goan shine..."? My response to you is, "You only goan shine when you seize the opportunity to shine, unless you are a changeover light bulb." (That bulb connected to the changeover and comes on when PHCN gives power, for you to know when to turn off your generator. Hehehe…)

You say you don’t want to twinkle like a star or sparkle like diamond; you want to shine brighter than the blazing sun. My darling, it is very possible, but you have to work hard for it. You have to constantly prepare yourself for that opportunity. Trust me, you don’t want to be caught unprepared, because you will regret it for the rest of your life, and trust me again, you don't want to 'if I had known'.

You know your present situation and where you want to be. You know who you are now and who you want to be. You know what you have now and what you would like to have.
Your homework is to draw a road map linking your present to your future. Only those who 'travel the road' will meet the opportunities that would bring out their shine.

If you decide to sit back, fold your arms and sing, "I'm goan shine when I'm goan shine..." My darling, you will not shine.

My quote of the week: Portray what you want the world to see, the world cannot read your mind.

There is never a Perfect Time

Jeez! The last time I published was on the 21st of September 2014, and a whole lot has happened since then. One of them was work, work, work, work, work, work...
My department was given additional job duties which I found overwhelming. (overwhelming in a singsongy...) I got home fagged and unable to think straight, let alone type anything. My laptop seemed like a burden and typing seemed like a chore. (I prefer typing using my laptop to my phone. Although that's gonna change from now on.) I told myself, 'this too shall pass' and gave my body time to readjust to the new workload.

Unfortunately for poor me, as I was readjusting, (which actually took an unnecessary long time), another change hit me. I was temporarily reassigned to another location which had way more work load than the previous, and it was farther from home. The road...OMG was more than terrible! Calling it a bumpy ride to work is an understatement. I was also one man down at the new location for some weeks which was killing. During that period writing didn’t appeal to me in any way. I just wanted that phase of my life to be over.

However, I realised that there is never a perfect time. Something must always come up to distract you. It’s just the way the world works. That is why there is a word called FOCUS. I actually lost focus. I had no excuse to stop writing. Like my bestie said, I was just plain lazy. I am even busier now but I am more focused. The clock will not stop ticking for my sake, neither will traffic stop moving. I have to just make it work, which is what I have decided to do from now on. No going back!

So my darlings, I am back with a bang! (I just wanted to say that, love the sound of it.) Anyway darlings, until my next post, stay focused!
