Recession tins

Just in case you aren't conversant with what is happening in Nigeria, let me be the first to inform you that we are in recession.
And I know we are in recession not because our finance minister may or may not have said recession is just a word but because of the following reasons which I shall post below.

Here is how Funmi knows Nigeria is in recession.

(1) The price of everything has gone up.
Chai! Iryoyin o to afojuba. As in efritin has gone up. Plus locally made products oh, food, even water. Not to talk about anything imported. God help you if you dare branch at phone, tablets or electronic shop and say you want to buy any of the three.
You will almost run out of there.
A bag of rice is 22,000 naira. And before the recession it cost about half or less than that.

To make matters worse,  you cannot calculate your next market runs based in your last market runs. Meaning that my boss heard a bag of rice was 20 k from another colleague who just bought. Only to get there and she was told it was now 22k.
Now imagine someone who budgets for a " Congo" or " derica" at a certain price and meets over budget.
My people! Efritin it has cost. From indomie to sugar to gaari. Even spaghetti sef.
And to complicate matters, prices are tripling, yet income isn't tripling.
You see predicament?

(2) Dollar!Dollar! Dollar!

In other words, dollar it haf gone up. Lol.
In fact gone up is an understatement. Dollar has " Jeun soke" .
And to think that I opened a domicillary account a few years back and put just 100 dollars there.
Which I got at black market for like 13,500 naira pere ( max fifteen k). Imagine if I had put 1000 dollars, or even two thousand dollars sef at 300k. That my 2000 dollars would be worth nine hundred thousand naira now.
All this my calculation is just to give you an idea oh of how annoying the whole thing is.

Why do I have a Dom account? We were sending money to my brother at a point. He didn't get a job quickly . And we considered the option of sending from a Dom account to his account over there. We eventually opted to just put money in my account or my mums, so he could just withdraw from the atm with our atm cards which were with him.
You know one can have more than one atm card per account right?
The Dom thingy was a big slow as you had to first change the money yourself, then it took a little while before he could get it, and we had to pay charges too.

I am just happy that all the money sending stuff didn't happen this recession period. I for don bankrupt.

(3) Decline in standards.
I don't know what this companies are adding to their products. Biko! Easy.
I am seeing this more in packaged foods and drinks. And I don't really blame the industries. They
have to break even somehow. The economy isn't smiling.
However as a consumer, it can be irritating. Biko increase your price if you have to. Stop over watering the drinks nah. I was in Abuja last week. I bought one yoghurt like that. And unfortunately I bought more than one. It was awful to say the least. I don't even know what they mixed with it.

I cooked one spaghetti the other day. It tasted awful too. I barely managed to finish eating it.
Yesterday, I bought a pack of sweets which I love, I tasted one,thinking it would be my usual milky
mix. That is how the milk said " be finding me". It was full of sugar. As in plenty sugar. Can you
imagine? And I can't throw it away because Hello! Recession. I hope my teeth sha does not fall out before I manage to finish it.

(4) Loss of jobs, late payment of salaries and little money in circulation generally.

Honestly! If this hasn't concerned you or anyone close to you, be thankful to God.
People are losing their jobs. I know someone who lost his before his wedding. I know several people who are being owed. My sister left her last job and the employer is yet to pay her and the others who left for July. A lot of other people are being owed arrears of salary payments. It's so sad. People are withdrawing their children from schools because they can it afford the fees any longer. People are hungry because they have nothing to eat.
My ex who gets road construction contracts from the Government complained of being owed several
millions of Naira.

(5) People asking for help and inability to pay back borrowed money.
Almost every day, I get calls and text messages from people older than me and those younger than me. People need help and they aren't shy to ask for it. Sometimes they ask that you borrow them money. Which isn't a bad idea if you have. The thing though is that now, I have a lot of borrowed money outside. People who always returned money borrowed from me quickly are starting to struggle to do so and you don't quite have the heart to nag them to return it. I am almost broke myself. when people call me now! I gently tell the truth. I do not have.

(6) Needs over wants.

My people! The price of stuff now has taught me to consider very well before I buy major stuff.
As in, somebody cannot be wasting money any how now.
Somethings that get chipped or spoilt now, I am not usually in a hurry to replace. I am like " it's manageable jare".
I don't just go buying clothes or shoes and bags anyhow now.
There is deliberation, consideration and calculation.
No be small something. but if it's food sha, I indulge my cravings sometimes. Person cannot come and die.

Finally! I find myself being very pessimistic about Nigeria.
Am I the only one considering relocating? I find that people in my age group, especially my colleagues are seriously considering it too.


So what about you, dearest blog visitor.
How has the recession in Nigeria affected you or anyone you know.
How has it changed your buying habits?
I would love to know.
Let's talk.

True or not?

Hi guys!
So I came across this pic on Facebook and it caught my attention.



What do you guys think?
Is the writer right or wrong?
As for me I agree.

When a woman stops doing all that is in the first part, It's very possible she just doesn't care again whatever the man may or may not get up to, which means the man has messed up so much she's over him, or she's in love with someone else.
Then again the key word is " stops" so if she's not been doing all that before, that may just be her personality.
Not all women get jealous, cry over men, go through their phone a.k.a " snoop ( I spend too much time on Sdk) lol, text or call first.

Why should I carry man matter on top head like gala seller? And I suspect the writer is male sef.

Ehn ehn! Where is Harper sef? It's been ages I heard from him. I don't even know if he still visits this blog sef.
If you get to read this, Harper! Happy Birthday in arrears.
Sorry it's coming late.
No I didn't forget. Plus it was my brother's birthday too so I could hardly forget. I thought it unlikely you would visit this blog that day so no point on a shout out.

I miss everyone else too.
And I am in a mental place where I can write a little more often.  So Fingers cross.
Thanks so much to everyone who keeps checking in.
You all are the reason why I haven't deleted this blog yet, and why I still write posts. Because I know you love me so much , you will read it.
Thank you guys. Mwah!

Don't forget to post your comment below! Let me know what YOU think.

Miss Melancholic

Hi guys!
Happy New month, Happy New week.
I pray October brings lots of sweetness to all your lives.
I know! I know! I have been MIA. And I have missed you guys.
I have been busy. And Courts have resumed so it is only gonna get even busier.
But manage this post abeg.
Get to know the melancholic side of me ( and why I do the things I do). 

Today we get to talk temperaments.
Specifically the melancholic temperament.
(Actually I wrote this post ages ago but there never seemed a right time to publish it. today seems like a good one. I feel like posting something just so you all know I have you in mind , I really do, and I appreciate everyone who has been checking in , but I literally have a pile of books, and luggage right in front of me. I have to read, and I have to pack, and watch tv at the same time so I can't really write a brand new post. 

 Soooo! My people! No be only boy/girl matter we suppose dey talk about nah. Have you ever wondered what kind of temperament you have? Or why some people behave the way they do?

There are four temperaments; Melancholic, Plegmatic ,Choleric  and Sanguine.
Source

These are combined into twelve pairs called 'blends'.
Each person has one of these blends that fits how they are most of the time; it is constant
throughout life, not a shifting mood. Temperaments don't change according to circumstances; rather, they determine how we react to situations.

Me, I knew I was melancholic without anyone saying a word to me. 
But when I came read more on temperaments , I was a bit relieved. It really explained a lot. I have almost all of the characteristics.

So let's dig into my melancholia.
Melancholic people are emotionally sensitive, perfectionistic introverts.

Looool.


Ok!
Nobody ask me who wrote this cos I don't know.  It was sent to my boss's whatsapp group, and we both had a good laugh about it. and I asked that she forward it to my phone.
Isn't it just too funny though? Women and our wahala. I don't agree of course, but can't you just feel the pain and frustration of whoever wrote this?

Or maybe not. Maybe the writer was just being cheeky.it could even be a man that wrote it sef. 
So I want to be cheeky too. Don't blame me. 
So here are my thoughts. The serious ones are in purple. 


1) Sis! What do you need his brain for. Just stare at his face when thoughts of his head bother you and
you are good.
Thinking of his physique and lips when he forgets that Obasanjo is no longer the president of Nigeria....lol. And that Lagos is not the capital of Nigeria. And pray hard that your kids do not inherit his Brain oh. Looool.

Funmi : The Law

Loooool.
That's how some people hail lawyers down here.
Or should I saw "DE LAW" . Seeing as some people change "the" to 'de".

"DE LAW ".
"DE LAW Madam is calling you". Definitely office people. No madam in my house.
"DE LAW come and buy" . Looool. This mostly when you are dressed in black attire or from sellers who know you are a lawyer.
"DE LAW. This just randomly. Some times family, sometimes co workers, sometimes friends. And you are like 'what'?
Speaking of  the Law, and all that's attached to it i.e Justice and court appearances, I have noticed one bad thing oh.

I have gone soft. 
I used to now feel sorry for some Accused persons. I don't know how the change happened oh. 
Me! That used to be like "Off with their heads" Ok exaggeration. "Wicked people"  "Life Imprisonment is what they deserve" etc.  Smh.

Now, I can't help myself, when I see them looking very morose with puppy dog eyes, batting them at you like say na me go set them free, na then you go dey hear "SISTER FUNMI or Miss .............. Or Mrs (as if say an dem give me husband). Lol. You know there is trouble when your father's mate dey greet you and calling you "sister" .

Happy New Month

Hi guys!
 Yes I am still alive.
No! I did not abandon you ( seeing as I love you too much to do so).
Yes! I have missed you.
Yes! I went MIA but I missed you.
Have I said that I missed you? I have abi.
Ok.

Happy New Month my Dearies.
Source
May this MAY be great, wonderful and happy for us all. Amen.
This new quarter will usher in new testimonies in Jesus Name.

Ehn ehn! What have I been up to?
My Birthday was fun. All of you that forgot well done.
It was on a Sunday.And my office crew showed up even though they had barely a days notice. I wasn't really in a partying mood but it turned into a party with Cake and all. Although my colleagues will disagree sha cos there was no alcohol. They had to make do with Power horse and Bullet.lol.
All their threats no move me at all.
My boss showed up and people were quite surprised cos he rarely goes to people's events.
At work the next day a lot of guys were like "Oga came to your party!It is a lie! And you didn't invite us?"
Leaving me to explain that the man basically invited himself and no it wasn't a big party.
Hehe.

Oh and I got lots of presents. Including a weight scale. Yeah my friend said he got confused at the store and thought  It was good idea. If we weren't close I would have been all 'what exactly are you trying to say' but he was genuinely clueless so I let it slide.

Oh! And an Ipad from my ex. Every year he always gives me anything I want for my birthday (we broke up after my law school years ago and rarely even see) but this year I was forming big girl and didn't ask for anything.
It was kinda a surprise cos last year I said I wanted the money to buy an Ipad( you get my ijebu sense) which I spent.
So this year he must have decided to just get it for me. I was surprised sha and that's hard to do.

What else? I have been busy with court appearances. I don't know why they (High Court) called off their strike sef. Lol.
I was enjoying myself with just the Court of Appeal appearances only.
That Court of Appeal is so fine compared to that High Court. If running stomach mistakenly catch you for that High Court you are on your own niyen.

Today that is public Holiday now. No light. I dare not on the Gen with the less than ten litres petrol we have left.
And those wayo Nepa are bring light after 12am midnight and Taking it before dawn.
Wetin I wan use light do for midnight jare when I no be witch.
Even witches sef no need light for their meeting.
Thank God for power banks and my laptop.
As soon as I am done posting this, I am showering and then watching Game of Thrones.
Hey Harper! Have you seen Empire?

How was the election for you guys?
Did you vote? I didn't oh but me sef don defect go Apc now. Hehe.

It's like Mr Abuja has accepted his fate oh.
Imagine! He called me last week and  I told him that I have only been attending to him because I want to be polite and not cause friction cos we work together and we have to see each other whether we like it or not. And that if it were a normal guy I would have stopped picking his calls siiiiiiiiiiiiiiince.

It was like Magic. He started sulking and he stopped calling.
I couldn't believe my luck. This was someone that would call and call and send texts and just be annoying.
One day he got fed up and asked me "Do you want to marry at all"?
I almost gave him E-slap via the phone.
So lack of interest in him equals lack of interest in Marriage abi.
Orishirishi.
See how short lived the undying love he claimed was?


There are other gists but for the life of me I can't remember any now.
Shout out to all who missed me and asked after me one way or the other. Love you guys.
Obiamaka! Bia! How is the wedding planning going?
Favour sweetie! Hugs.
My main crew! You know yourselves now. I am heading to your blogs over the weekend.
For those who did not allow me rest a.k.a Duru.Well done!  Side eyes to Duru ( I am sure that guy cannot swim yet he was threatening me).
Don't think that your threat worked oh. You hia? Lol.

Toin! Toin!Toin! Shey I no go come collect fuel from your house like this? Hehe.
Ok bye guys.
See you soon.

 Post a comment below! Don't just run away. Let us what YOU think.

 Ehn/ehn! Before we get to the business of the day, how did you spend Valentines day?And where are my presents? I thought you guys liked me ehnn?
That Saturday,I went down my street oh and out of laziness i decided to take a cab home even though i could have just strolled down. Just N20 cab for you to know how short the distance was. That was how i entered one 419 cab oh or should i say cab with 419 guys inside.
You know those cabs where everyone inside is in on the scam?

Wedding Gist

Ghen! Ghen!
Wedding Gist don arrive!
Photo Source
Never mind that it's February 2015 and the two brides ( my colleague and my cousin's wife) fit don get belle sef cos my colleague has started exhibiting some suspicious symptoms.
Even my cousin's wife sef I can't guarantee that she never get belle cos they dated for about seven years without having sex (as he said oh cos I wasn't kuku there).
Come to think of it oh my colleague too married as a virgin.

Anyway! Gist is gist nah! No matter how late.
Particularly amebo gist; Always relevant.Lol
(If you are lost just read the background here).

So we finally got to the wedding venue that morning after tailor drama and Jeep overheating drama.
Can you imagine that the tailor didn't finish my sisters gown until like 10am that morning.
And we were still traveling cos the wedding was out of town. My dad was quietly pissed.
The church was almost over by the time we arrived but we sha managed to show face which was the koko. Our immediate family was just giving us the looks of "Are you supposed to just  be coming to wedding when all your mates have arrived siiiiiince"
My mum had already gone the day before nah so I don't know what my own was.

I had the unenviable task of shuttling between two venues oh but luckily they were like 15 minutes apart so it was easy.

The reception for my Cousin was beautifully decorated and full of people (Politicians and heavily painted ladies looking to snare an aristo or two included)
Although with all the money wasted spent it couldn't be anything else but beautiful.
We barely managed to find seats and squeeze ourselves in the back seats. As in so close to the door that a few minutes later we would find ourselves outside. And by we,I am talking about the whole  crew(the grooms mother's whole family and friends ) her twin brother included.

However we all knew the koko before the
wedding so nobody squeeze face too much.
Afterall na my cousin want big wedding.

I am happy to announce that trays did not pass me by but that was not much to be happy about because there were too many orisirisi on the menu, about six or seven different meal combinations plus starters and deserts to be happy with the rice I ate.
I sha managed to grab ofada,fried rice and a few drinks for myself. I tried abi. Fish,juice and wine  was just passing me by. But I consoled myself with the rice and maltina in front of me.

Madam step mother was just prancing around
the hall frustrating all my aunt's endeavours.lol.

She no allow my aunt take any pic with her
(their )husband oh.
She made sure she photo bombed inserted herself  positioned herself into any picture of parents of the couple or grooms parents.
In short any picture where my aunt could be mistaken as her husband's wife,never mind that she was the groom's mother.

I am sure a lot of people mistook her for the groom's mother.
With the same clothes she wore with the groom's parents and all.
It was hilarious and sad at the same time.
I don't know how some people think but it's not
my mess so na dem sabi.

All the gifts that were given to the couple,my
cousin's father( on the prodding of madam step mother I am sure) took the expensive ones on
the grounds that they were given to him and not the son as it was his friends and fellow politicians that brought it.
The one that pained me pass is one big curved led screen tv that I saw.
That Tv was gigantic mehn.
So let's just say all the parties are now barely speaking to each other.


Cousin is mad at his dad for giving steppie so much room to make money from his wedding.
His mum is mad at the dad and steppie  for the embarrassment of having to ask steppie for food at her son's wedding and all the millions steppie was rumoured to have made.

The step siblings are mad at their dad for spending so much on their step brothers wedding when he didn't do so for them.
Step mum is mad at hubby for spending so much and inviting his mistresses to the wedding. And also because her kids are too young to get married and eat out of the national cake.

But honestly what were they expecting?
The man tried sef in the circumstances. He spent millions on that wedding.
He took over virtually all the expenses: Clothing for the couple,all the parents, decoration,hotel booking, food,cake, rings,
 aso ebi for the family,and ankara for the "mogbo moya" crew.lol.

My colleagues wedding was low key so no biggie. It was drama free.I was too full( with the rice lol) from my cousins wedding to eat there
anyway.

By the time it was evening, I just carried all my property and informed anybody that was interested that I was going back home oh.
I felt a tad guilty for abandoning my folks cos my dad's vehicle needed to be seen to before it could travel but I just close eye and wished them bye bye.
My sister too followed me.
Disloyal daughters lol.

They ended up staying for about 3 days there before they eventually found the elusive part.
I was so happy I abandoned them. I don't like sleeping in beds that aren't mine jare.

And I have not heard from my cousin since then. Sigh!

Yay!
99th post done.

Public Declaration of Affection

Hi Guys!
No. This isn't about whether making out in Public is gross or not.
Rather, it's about Public Declaration of Affection. Otherwise called declaring our love for someone publicly especially on social media.

Looking for Mr/Miss Perfect



The truth is that a lot of people sabotage what they have all in that bid for a perfect partner.

THANK YOU

Hi guys!
Feels great to be chatting to you guys once again.
I have missed and missed you guys (covers face).
Some people have accused me of smelling Christmas since November.
Hmm! Na una sabi oh.
I smelt and smelt it but I decided that i must stop smelling and come and wish you guys a happy new year.
Abi!i no try ni? Lol.

Cos meeting you guys made 2014 a different one from the rest.You made it fantamazing.(Yep!i just made that up).

So here's to all you guys.Who kept checking and checking if naughty me had posted anything. You don't realise how humbling it is to check my blog stats and see people still visiting and reading posts and dropping the odd comment or two.


 For all your comments, for all your love, for your time, for your opinions,for your visits, for making me feel that I wasn't writing nonsense,(and for reading it even if i was), for the referrals,for all your compliments,for the surprise visits,for the visits from other bloggers (the new,old and established),for the reviews,for the mentions,for the compliments,
I thank all of you.

I must confess to being lazy this last few months.

I can smell Christmas

Hi guys!
I have already started smelling Christmas oh. 
Isn't it odd that November is almost over, and soon Christmas will soon be here and before you know it, it's January One 2015. Can somebody say whoop!whoop!.
2014! What a year. What a year indeed.
The year that....... Oh wait! Its not over yet so don't let me start soliloquies on 2014.
That will have to wait.
So what have we all been up to? I notice Harper has been off the grid? Guy!

 Ehn ehn! Did anybody know that you can make pounded yam with food processor,hand mixers and even blender?
Do I hear a Nope? If so, lemme be the one to inform you (teeth shining in happiness and all) that you don't have to struggle with that mortar and pestle ever again.
For people like me wey no know how to pound yam even though I come from Ekiti, it's a no brainer.
I have to get that food processor as soon as possible.
My colleague (after yabbing me very well for not being traditional) told me he saw one at Mr Price for N61,000. Kilode. For that price it better cook the yam, pound it, cook the soup and serve it. Hehe.

So everything in my house is #countdown to my cousins wedding.
I am thinking of even going on Saturday sef cos the engagement and wedding is on saturday.
Going on Friday means being among family( Aunties,uncles,cousins,nieces and nephews) and their friends and answering silly questions on when you are doing your own or worse having to say "Amen" to their prayers of "tie naa a de" aka your own too will come. I don't know who asked them for prayers?
 Smh.
Going on Saturday means arriving at the party venue by which time nobody will even have my time.
The only snag to my plan is that darn 'environmental sanitation'. Who fixes a wedding on a day when you can't be on the road until 9am?

 My cousin and my colleague. That's who.
 And it's about 2 hours drive so Its either we leave like 5am that Saturday in order to beat the sanitation thingy ,leave after the sanitation ( in which case I better be prepared for lots of side eyes cos we are gonna miss the engagement) or go on Friday.

Another disadvantage to going on Friday is accommodation.
I have already made a reservation  (thankfully i didn't have to pay to reserve a  room) in the hotel where the reception is holding that my sister and I can sleep in, but I have visions of my cousins eyes shining in happiness when they realise I booked a room,meaning that when accommodation gets scarce ( and knowing my cheapskate aunt, it's sure to get scarce) they can all just say " Shebi it's  just two of you,we will manage now".

Anyone who knows Nigerian weddings knows that "managing" means ten of you sleeping in one room, some on the floor, and as many as possible on the bed under the guise of "Shebi it's just till morning".
I remember when two of my friends  got married in Lagos.
It was hot and unventilated.
You can imagine how hot Lagos can be and about ten people cramped in the room. I just jejely took my position on one third of the bed and didn't move an inch oh. I had no intention of sleeping on the floor cos of one friend who pretended to forget that she had more than ten friends and only one spare room in her house.

I plan to have fun sha. And to make sure no food trays pass me by.
Thanks for checking in. Muahhhhhh.

Passion and Careers


Hi guys,
Hope you all had a rocking weekend?
I have had this post on my mind for a long time but haven't quite found the time to write it.
It's about people who have made a career out of something they are passionate about.

 There's no way it's easy to spend all those years at the University, reading a particular course, and then jettison it to follow your passion.
Such decisions often seem crazy and I can imagine the raised highbrows and incredulity that must have followed such pronouncements.
" You want to waste your law/medical degree to become a fashion designer/singer/photographer"?
 I have always being a fan of people that damm the consequences and follow their passion.
Ok no spoilers.
Lemme get to it and talk about some people who have followed their dreams and made a career out of their passion.

 First, is going to be a friend, Seyi Tubosun aka Seyi Turbo who dropped his Law Certificate by the side and followed his passion in photography.

I remember the time I met this awesome guy for the first time . 
And I remember how my mouth opened and couldn't close when he told me he was a photographer. You mean 'Foto'? I asked myself.
Imagine my further surprise when he told me he was a lawyer.
It was very hard to wrap my mind around the fact that someone could go to school in Nigeria, spend like 6- 7 years reading law, and then say him ' no do' again.
But, when I saw his face, I saw passion, I saw love for the camera and the pictures he took.
He went on and on about the joys of photography and the art form. And by the time I finished looking through the pictures on his Ipad, ( it was a long road trip, so we had ample time) I had no doubts or questions again.
Source
Now when I see his logo on pictures, I just smile, but inwardly I am jumping up and down screaming "I know him,i know him" He is my friend.lol.
  I am so local abi.
Check out his Instagram page on http://instagram.com/seyiturbophotography for more pics. I didnt want to post others cos i didn't have permission. 

I mentioned earlier that i have had this post in mind for a long time.
However watching Falz yesterday on an old episode of Tool's "The Juice" yesterday (he was the guest musician) motivated me to write it today.
 Yep! My newest crushee Falz. Lawyer turned Musician.

 His back story caught my attention.
He is a Lawyer turned Musician. He read law at the University of Reading. He is also the son of esteemed lawyer Femi Falana.
He is also cute and his music is not bad.

Here are excerpts from his interview with the Vanguard.

"My name is Folarin Falana but I am popularly known as Falz or Falz ‘The Bad Guy’. I am a musician, and an entertainer."
Q-"What is a Barrister doing, singing?"
A-"  A lot of people have asked me that and my reply is that when you are very passionate about something you must follow your heart. Music is my passion, that is why I am in music'.

Q-  "Given your father’s reputation, one would have  expected you to follow in his footsteps. Why tread another path?"

A-  "Initially, that was my intention. Looking at his life and how much he has achieved and the kind of name he has made for himself, I sincerely wanted to follow in his footsteps. I admired his monumental achievements,and his lifestyle. In fact that was why I went to study Law; to follow in his footsteps but along the line I just developed the love for music and music stole my heart and I decided to follow my heart."Note the magic words," follow my heart". You can read the full interview at http://www.vanguardngr.com/2014/02/femi-falanas-son-falz-dumped-law-music/.

Thirdly, we have Omawumi Megbele.
Another lawyer turned award winning musician.
You people should not be jealousing us lawyers oh. hehe.  Although, on the flip side, there seem to be an awful lot of them changing careers.
She graduated from Ambrose Alli University with a Law degree. After graduating in 2005, she moved to Port Harcourt, Rivers State, where she worked with her family's law firm called "O.S Megbele & Associates".  She is yet to attend law school but she has indicated interest in going to law school at a later date. 
Read a full interview at  http://m.museke.com/node/4360.

Fourthly, there's Ewemade Emokape, the owner of Shakara Couture.
Ewemade in one of her creations
A lawyer and fashion designer extraordinarie. 
She is also a blogger and her writing is so so amazing. She blogs at www.matildaschild.com .
 On attainment of her Law degree from the University of Lagos, she sought to follow her passion and attended the London College of Fashion and Central Saint Martins to be professionally trained in millinery, dress-making, fashion illustration and personal styling. 
Check out her line at http://shakaracouture.com/
Read her post on her journey aptly titled 'Bata mi a dun ko ko ka"

Some other people who have followed their passion include Funke Akindele (Lawyer turned award wining actress), Dr Sid ( Doctor turned singer) and Funke Bucknor Obruthe (Lawyer turned events planner).
 (Can you tell I am getting tired)

So my friends and peeps, That's it for passions and those who have made their passion their career.
It probably wasn't easy for them at the Beginning but they made it.
At least they have a success story. Not everyone who follows their dream always end with a success story oh.
But at least they are an  inspiration. 

So! Any resignation letters imminent? Lol.
Abeg no resign yet oh.
Just be inspired and think it through. Be sure you actually have the talent to support that dream.

FYI. My passion is Books. Books! Books and writing. So law isn't a bad profession. The analysis and legal maneuvering is right up my alley. The talking! Not so much.
My dream is to own a book store. Yep! A big, big store where I fill with lots of books and sell.
That isn't weird right?
When I was younger I wanted to be a journalist and write,write, write. However that Jamb brochure didn't gimme a university where I could study journalism and while I gave a brief thought to studying at the "Nigerian Institute of Journalism", I soon discarded it cos I knew my dad would think it was a waste of potential. Besides I wasn't sure if they awarded degrees or not.
I think that if I hadn't read law at the university,i would have still gone back to read it as a second degree.

Hello! Hi!


Or should that be Wait! What! New post.
Hehehehe.
Sup guys!
How dey go dey go?

Hope you have all been awesome. I have been so busy, I haven't really found the time to relax and write anything.  It has just been Court this, Court that.

In fact ehn the number of times I have gone to court this month is more than I did last year sef.
Tomorrow morning again! I dey go another one.

So what have y'all been up to this last two weeks? Abi is it three?
Two weeks ago I was out of town to chill out and for some solitude.
Theres something about being away from it all that enables one to get some perspective.
The first thing I did was to call Inspector Duru and ask his opinion on reaching out to someone on her birthday. I am sure he must have been amazed,like kilode! Early monday morning. And out of the blue like that when I had pointedly said No to him all this while.

By the way his birthday was on the 12th. He is all of 23 years old now.
Duru! Agba ti n de oh. Lol.

Since I couldn't write a post on that day, lemme use this opportunity to wish him Happy Birthday in arrears. I am sure he is like" kilode Funmi? How many times you wan wish me happy birthday".
Bubba! As many times as possible cos you deserve it.
For being such a "ghen ghen", humble, optimistic, accommodating and peace loving person.
I think we all need an inspector in our lives to soften the hardness and cynicism that life brings our
way.

So what else have I been up to?

Hmmm! I decided to branch out of my yoruba cooking skills and step up my game.
Actually lemme not lie, it's not like I had an epiphany oh.
I ate 'Oha' soup during my trip. The last time I ate it was when I was in Abuja.
So when I got back, I just googled how to make it and got a recipe from Dooneys Kitchen which somehow made it all sound so easy. (Y'all should check out her website for more fabulous recipes and salivating pictures.
That was how I went on ingredients buying spree. Some of which I had never seen before in my entire life.
Luckily my boss assisted me to get it sha. She's not Yoruba and was excited to show me the ropes on how "her people "cook soup.
I also bought pepper soup ingredients so that I could make the ingredients myself as opposed to buying those ready made ones.
Those already ground ones always taste somehow to me.
My mum just gave me the side eye when she saw the ingredients. Like " I hope you are not marrying an ibo man you this girl".lol.
My sister was just happy that she was eating something different.
I made the oha soup ,and it was good although I used a little too much thickener, but the second time I made it,i aced it and made it in larger quantity and put the rest in the freezer.
I was just feeling like "national" cook.

My dad is so unadventurous when it comes to stuff like that. He prefers his efo riro and okra soup.
Shikena! No more no less.
I can't blame him sha. Most yoruba people I know like their regular yoruba soup.
Me! I am all for trying new things out.

I have also been in a baking/grilling mode. I just vex go buy electric oven cos the big gas one we have had for like 3 years now,  I haven't even been tempted to try it out.
I figured I could start with a smaller one. The downside is that it's electric only and when Nepa takes light , you are O-Y-O.

So basically, apart from work, that's what I have been up to.
Congrats to Esther and Eniwealth on their blog anniversaries (which happened sometime earlier).
To quote my dear Obiamaka," your inkwell shall never run dry in Jesus name".
Amen.

My cousin's wedding is in 2 weeks. My colleague is also getting married that same day, in the same town. Thank goodness cos I don't know how I would have divided myself into two to attend both if they were in 2 different towns.
Ok! lemme not lie, I would have preferred to go to my colleagues wedding.
Smaller, yes! More intimate,less crowded,less expensive  and more fun.She didn't even chose aso ebi.
Don't you just love nice friends like that? Easy on the pocket.lol

My cousin's wedding is however "a must" (to quote some Nigerians).
Because I am about four years older than he is. If somebody doesn't go like that they will feel you have bad belle or you are jealous or something.
Coupled with the four different aso ebi chosen for the event, of which I have three out the four ( his mum chose 2 lace material aso ebi oh, only for the dad, a member of Jonathan's cabinet to send free lace and ankara after my mum had paid her sister for the ones she chose) smh.
All of which I haven't even sewn yet cos  I don't even know which one to sew out of all 3.
The good thing is the two weddings both chose the colour blue.
Ain't I lucky? And in the same town? I can just stylishly leave my cousins venue and go to my colleagues own.

Lemme stop here for now.
Its your turn to gist me what you have been up to.
The good and the bad, I wanna hear it oh.

Shout out to Airnee. Thanks for the email.

Social media relationships and bias


Hi guys,
Happy new Month and week. I pray that sweet November lives up to its name for all of us.Amen.
For all of una that have to go to work, sorry oh!
I have a week off and I am just chilling.

This Monday, we are examining the bias some people have against love and friendship found via social media.

Now, most people have a very traditional view of where people find love. i.e Boy sees a fine girl at the mall, in college, or they are neighbors or colleagues, in a restaurant, introduced by friends or family,meet at events, in the bus,train, cab, (molue,keke marwa) hehe, he approaches her, she likes him, she agrees and they fall in love.
However this is the 21st century. And I have come to the realization that things are changing.
Love is now found in the oddest of places and even if not odd, at least via non traditional channels.

So let's take social media for instance. Some people still have a bias against what they term "facebook love". And even though I can't blame them it's a bit jarring.
When Mr Abuja came on his last "surprise " visit (otherwise called the one that broke the camels back hehe) He said his mum said "Hope it's not one of this facebook girls".

And I had to laugh. I have a facebook account,so do millions of other women.
Does that make me unmarriagable for her dear son and other mothers's dear sons  Or am I permitted to have a facebook account but finding love on it somehow makes me loose?
I am really puzzled.
And it's not just the older folks, I notice it among people in my age range too.
Somehow telling your friends that you met someone online is met with raised eye brows.
If you want to kill them just say you met him or her on a dating site.hehe.
Somehow even if they don't tell you, In most of their minds the relationship isn't going anywhere.
And if per chance shit happens like it almost always does even in real life, then they blame it on how you met them.

Now does how you meet someone determine how the relationship eventually end up?
A rough translation of a yoruba adage says that a lady you meet through dance will eventually dance out of the relationship.
So in short the adage coiners do not see anything good coming out of that scenario.lol.

All ye Nightclub goers. What say ye? Any experience in that regard?
Are all the people in a nightclub inherently undateable?
Aren't they the same people that still go to church and malls.
Same goes for Facebook,Twitter,Instagram and co.

Or could the fear some people have as regards to meeting people online be because they fear that social media bonds aren't as deep as those you have with people you met via traditional means.
Thus making it easy to cut off.
For instance one might be more inclined to make a relationship work if he/she was your family friend you have known for ages.

Note that this bias also applies to online friendships.
 For some people,friendship with social media as its foundation isn't as solid or as strong as real life friendships.
However the truth is real life friends also mess up. A friend who will mess up will do so irrespective of how they met.
On the flip side, there are also friends in real life who are like sisters or brothers to you and who have been with you at key points in your life. Those ones who know you better than yourself.

Another fear is that a lot of people hide behind the facade of social media and it may be difficult to know their real selves because they can chose to have any kind of personality.
When you get to know them better or meet them in person the illusion shatters thereby revealing the real person underneath such facade.
Social media tends to be an avenue for people to hide their flaws.
Many a woman has been aghast to discover that the Adonis she has been chatting to online is actually just five feet tall and not as handsome or as charming in person.

Personally,I have met a number of people both male and female online and through social media.
In fact ehn before facebook I had friends I met through yahoo.
I am still friends with some of them while time and chance has separated me and the others.
But I didn't notice any difference in them as a result of how we met.
They are still the same person that they would have been had we met through friends or in a cab or in college.

 It must be said that the spate of kidnappings,rape and murder that seem to happen nowadays through social media hookups don't seem to help the course of social media dating. A lot of desperate scammers, thieves  and unsavory characters seem to lurk in the deep alleys of social media seeking to lure some unlucky people to dire ends.
Most of them take advantage of the lure social media hook ups seem to hold for some men and women.

I read on a blog last week that a female student had been declared missing after having left a night club with a guy.
The Cynthia girl who was murdered is a facebook hook up with an unfortunate ending.
I am sure that other numerous cases of looting and rape as a result of on line hook ups abound that we haven't heard of.
However this doesn't still erase the fact that the internet,twitter, facebook and co have also done their fair share in linking a people together. Not only when it comes to love and casual hook ups but business, religion wise etc.
A lot of people are married now that met on social media.
They started an online relationship, met and saw what they liked (I assume),hit it off and now are married.
So Guys!

Have you ever dated someone you met through social media.
Would you marry someone you met through social media.
Do you have friends you met through social media?
How close are you to them? Is there any difference between how you feel about them and the real life ones?

Name something(s)

Hmmm!
Let's get naming.
The men should feel free to name something that they think women need to stop doing too.
And when we say "need", it means they absolutely need to stop. As in very essential. Lol
Happy weekend guys.
Mine is gonna be soooooo busy.
Shout out to @ Toinlicious Sup!
Kini soo?My town person of life. Hope you are doing great.

Monday Blues



So let me start by saying Hi to all you lovely people who seem to like/love this blog.
How has your weekend been?
 For a while now I have just not been feeling like doing anything.As in anything. Except eating sha.
I wish I could hide under the covers all day and watch tv shows. I don't feel like talking to anyone.
I snap at anyone that calls me and rambles on and on. Abeg!i am not in the mood for long talk jare.
Thank God for work. Then I am forced to go somewhere.

Is anybody watching Blacklist? I watched the first episode of season 2 and heard one of the soldiers speaking my language. As in yoruba,  I was so thrilled ehn, Did anyone else catch that scene or am I just 'jobless'.

I got my voters card today.i look so different. Imagine! I did the registration in 2011 oh.That one they paid Corpers to do temporary work for them.
I didn't even know that I could still get it. See my face looking all babyish . Is it weird that I was fine then and I didn't even know it. lol.  I think I need to lose some weight. When I add weight the first place it shows is my face instead of it to show in some other places.
#idunnowhy#.
On the flip side if I lose weight people start asking if I am sick or recovering.
#Aprokotins#

So I got a mention/ review/ story/appearance  on T.Notes's Blog. (you will understand why it's either of all four when you read it  ).
Read the post and understand why I have been getting mad stats today.
 Anyway I admire his writing style and prose. He is one of those few people who would make a good poet and novelist, and be critically acclaimed. Yep! (Me sef I am doing review).
You guys should go check it out and tell me what you think.

Ehehn!  Seeing as we are on the topic or not.
How do I get Mr Abuja to amicably back off?
 We didn't date and I have only seen him like 3 times  but I am finding it so difficult to get him to understand that it ain't happening .
Imagine!he had the gall to go give my name to another colleague to pray about me.
If I saw him,i would probably have strangled him. Are you crazy? Of all the pastors in that Abuja it's our colleague he gave my name to. Unfortunately (for him) or fortunately( for me) it was someone I knew. That one too "prayed" and told me love doesn't have to come first.
Really! "Like" nko! Abi that one too doesn't have to feature.

Smh. I have given him enough hint to get him to back off but it's as if he is deaf.
And I am only playing nice cos we work in the same office albeit in different states.
"Stop calling me" he won't listen. "Give me space". No. Kilode?

This post sef is long. It was supposed to be short.

Ehm. What else? Lemme go think of what to post next o jare.

Inspector Duru! I hail una. Just chill ok. On all counts. And I did tell you I was gonna be reading it.Did you think I was lying?
Vira! I hope the town is now blue after it was painted red. Lol.
Harper! No comment. Wait! Have you seen Blacklist S2?Is it better than S1?
Esther! Enjoyment galore abi!
Shout out to Eniwealth, Abike(our latest BV),NaijaSingleGirl,Berry,Amaka, Niyi,Beautiful(another newbie BV),Zoe, Toinlicious,Lola Oseni,Jane and everybody else.
I haven't heard from Tee in a while. Sup! Tee.
My Opinion! I no forget you jare. It been a while. Is it you or me?
How those Court appearances?
Kai! I can't forget Obiamaka and Temidayo. 2 ladies I appreciate a lot.
I didn't forget anyone else that I didn't mention oh. I will add them up as soon as I remember.

Hmmm!

I am still pondering this oh. 
Does falling for another person automatically mean you didn't love the first person enough?
What do you guys think?

Monday, 20 October 2014

"NO" NO! NO?

Hi guys.
How has your weekend been? Or should i say how was last week?
Chai! Its been almost a week oh.
In short It's exactly a week you saw me last. Make una no vex jare.
I know some people have missed and missed me. But i won't mention their names sha.
Oya!If you are happy to read this post and you know it clap your hands. hehe.

Today we are talking about "NO".
 Basically when "NO" is ignored and sex in that situation amounts to rape because of lack of consent.
LOL.She's taken it personal Pic Source

Busy Monday


Hey guys! Another Monday don waka come oh.
Thank God it's almost over.
 Didn't i just love last week monday and tuesday as per public holiday tins? This Monday is so different from last week. So stressful and busy. And I have another busy day tomorrow.
Source
Anyway let me shake off the moroseness.
How was your weekend and the previous sallah break for those of us in Naija.
I had mega fun ehn and ate so much meat. I don't think there was any part of the ram that I did not taste. I don't want to think about the calories.

 I got a surprise visit from Mr Abuja. Imagine!
I hadn't been picking his calls for a while cos I just needed space.
I was more pissed than happy to be surprised.
With my already overpacked weekend that I was still wondering how to handle somebody thought that it was a great idea to come surprise me.As in not tell me until he arrived my town and just called me and expected me to drop everything.

I guess he didn't get the memo that i didn't like surprise visits.
Tell me you are coming biko so i can plan my day.
I almost didn't see him out of annoyance and to teach him not to travel miles without checking with the person you are going to see. What if i had traveled or had my own parole sef?
But my sister aka defender of the Universe was all "How can someone come all that way and you won't see him,try and be nice".
So I tried to be nice. Lol. And he came bearing gifts anyway.
But seriously I haven't even said yes yet but he hasn't let that deter him.
Now he is all "talk to my mum" "I have given her your number".
Lol.I just tire.

Did anybody watch the Big Brother Africa opening show last Sunday? I watched oh and promptly lost interest .
I dunno whether its work or that weird talent contest they did. That was how somebody said she is not watching but that i should help her scope out the fine boys there. Some people like fine boys.I wont mention names sha. But they know themselves.
Someone on my BBM  made it mad fun sha with our BBA ping-galore. Some of those voices trying to sing were atrocious mehn and it was fun dissing them and talking about height things. *cough*.
I didn't watch yesterday's eviction show oh. Who went home biko?

Did anyone miss the lindaikeji drama last week? If you did you missed ehn.Nigerwife is of the opinion that Mr Ayedee is in love with Linda.She sees love in the air. Read her post here http://www.nigerwifediary.blogspot.com/2014/10/linda-ikeji-should-marry-mr-aye-dee.html
What do you guys think?
I don't know if Linda can forgive him oh. She already said its an obsession.

Cut thy cloth according to thy size

Todays post was written by Naijasinglegirl who has so nicely given me permission to repost.
I read her posts a lot cos I love the way she writes and she is so humorous.
So here is the post.
In her words oh, not mine.

 
So yeah! I was looking forward to a nice relaxing Saturday! Away from everything… a place where they could pamper me…release some stress, make my feet soft, give me new set of nails and make my face more beautiful. YES! The beauty salon.
When it comes to switching hairdressers, I am fickle to a fault. I’ve never had a regular one because each of them usually leave me dissatisfied. Either Missy Eliot’s image is staring back at me on the mirror when I paid them to make me look like Rihanna’s twin or they are giving me a Bance’s haircut when I asked for Miley Cyrus’s haircut. That’s how incompetent they are.

20 Random Facts About Me Tag


I was tagged by the ever fabulous Berry Dakara to do 20 random facts about me.

Soooooooooooooooo lets get started.


Pic Source
  1.   My phone is always on silent. Lets just say i have a lot of missed calls and irate callers who are always like "where did you put your phone". The only time it rings is when i am expecting a call and i don't want to miss it then i remove it from silent.
  2.  My favorite food is pasta. Macaroni, Spagetthi anything pasta like. In short you can kidnap me with it.
  3.  I love the colour green a lot. This blog was almost green and white. But it looked so much like i was advertising Naija Lotto or Aso Rock, i had to change it.
  4. I loooove to sleep a lot. As in i look forward to,even dream of sleeping. This days i am not getting enough sleep. Dunno why.
  5. I am a night person. If i could get a job where i could work at night and sleep all day, i would be very happy. Please don't suggest ashawo work oh.hehe.
  6.  I stopped wearing lipstick about three years ago.
  7.  I hate soft food. Yam,rice,beans, In short anything at all cooked except bread.I can't eat hard bread oh, and i cant eat soft food.

  10. I have seen some very cute guys on this Big Brother Africa that premiered yesterday. Ehn that's also part of random facts now.

  12. I hate cobwebs and spiders. Its not unusual to find me at 2am killing a spider. Oh and i hate wall geckos too.
  13. I love snacking more than i love real food. And if its sweet, all the better. My colleagues are always asking me "how don't you have jedi jedi"?
  14. I don't like sharing anything i want to eat. I prefer to buy yours for you but please leave mine alone. But i am sure you have already kinda figured that i like food seeing as i have talked about it like 4 times. Tis not my fault.
  15. Emmmmm. I don dey run out of random facts oh.  we never reach 20 ni? Ok. I can be very odd.  The things that bother most people don't bother me. On the flip side the things that don't bother them bother me.
  16.  I love to be alone. I am very comfortable being by myself.
  17.   I love to laugh. I dunno why. Ok I know. Will tell you later.
  18.  I wish i were taller jare. I dunno why my brother took my mums height instead of me. And I don't like wearing heels.
  19.  I don't like watching new movies. I wait for years before watching them. However i can gist somebody about what happened there oh.
  20. I love water. Seriously, i love to drink water. I can't eat without seeing water oh. The downside is when i drink a bottle before bed and i have to wake to pee. Not 9pm bed oh, 12 am midnight kind of bed. I then start wondering who sent me message oh.
  21. I read super fast ehn,a weird talent I developed in boarding school when I wanted to read a book badly and 30 girls were on a line to read it. I usually stylishly read it in between and it had to be fast.
  22. Finally! I am a righty oh but I taught myself to write with my left hand. Tis just very slow ni oh and not as fine as my normal right handed one.
  23. Lai Lai. E don do. I don pass 20 sef.

Hmmmmmmmmm. So I remember that Friday when i saw that tag. You can read  it here .
I noticed some mad traffic from Berry's Blog and i was baffled. And I thought 'What could have happened'? That was how i ran  to her blog oh. Only for me to see that she had tagged me. I was so surprised cos i wasn't expecting it.
I mean, this is someone whose blog i love a lot,who linked me to a lot of sites that i love a lot,Naija HusbandMatildas ChildAyo,  Sisi Yemmie and others.
When you see me replying comments, you can blame it on Berry.  Na where i learn am be that.

Loooong Weekend



This Friday mehn!
In short this weekend ehn! E go shele. I have got parties on my mind oh.
I only hope I can leave that office before five cos the mad traffic that is going to happen today ehn! In fact from the sample I saw yesterday , today's own won't have part 2.

Pls who will help me beg Mtn to come and carry their ringtone oh.
To dash somebody credit they will not.
Imagine now giving me free caller tunes. Na by force? Did I tell them say I need caller tunes.
If it were better song now I won't mind.
Of all the songs in all the albums in this world ( who has watched cassablanca) guess what they dashed me?
777 is a number by Shina Peters.
Imagine oh. 777 ko 111 ni.

I called to complain they told me to cancel only for me to cancel and barely five minutes later I got a text that they have dashed me another one. I cancelled that one and same thing happened again.
I don tire. That is how they dashed a lot of people cos that was a lot of people's caller tunes.

Has anyone seen "Extant"?
The new Halle Berry tv show. That was how I went to a supermarket oh and one guy was like "can I see those dvds. I had like 3. And he said I should borrow him one.
Imagine. I sha gave him the "Extant" cos that "Ray Donovan"  wasn't going anywhere and he was like "So I need your contact to return it".
See scope oh. I was just like "Keep it". But the thing pain me sha. Now I have to get another one.

Speaking of TV shows, I am currently watching  "Hit the Floor". I was watching an episode on Sunday and I saw someone that looked like Omotola Jalade Ekeinde. I thought I was seeing double and had to back track before I remembered that I read somewhere that she had a cameo role with Akon.
She looked great and I felt happy.
Since I don dey watch all this TV series, na the first time I go see a Nollywood star be that oh.
Has anyone else seen that scene. Or am I watching too much tv?

Yay! Big Brother Africa is starting soon. I hope the people on my bbm love it sha cos I plan to do a lot of gbeborun and some" Did you see what she did" and " Did you hear that"?

So my cousin's wedding is fixed for November ending. That wedding was not gonna pass me by oh. I must go and do gbeborun and look at drama. But my colleague just picked a date for her wedding and it's the same date.
Now I am torn.
Drama vs Fun.
Family vs Friendship.
Like I said earlier, he (cousin)  is having a big wedding. But my colleague is having a small one.But it will be mad fun cos it would have been nice hanging out and traveling with my crew as in my padis in the office. Those guys can have fun ehn. It's always epic.
The good thing is that it's the same town. So maybe I can shuttle venues.

So tomorrow is a big day.
In short the weekend is a big one in my house. Lots of cooking. What with Sallah and all.
Also two awesome people I know, (in fact three if you count my boss) have their birthdays on the 4th of October. My brother and our one and only BV Harper.

So guys! What's your weekend going to be like?
Let's talk.
