Merry Christmas 

Merry Christmas my lovelies…

is

My! My! What a year! 2015!

But look at us, headcount complete, no broken bones, none is sick, we have plenty food and family and belly laughs and love… Indeed there’s so much to be thankful for.

I’ve done a lot of waka/activity since December began and it sort of set the tone/pace for my Christmas holiday *no complaints at all*

Was in Kaduna over the weekend for a dear friend’s family event – wedding/kamu. It was so lovely. I lived in Kaduna as a child and so it was nice to visit again as an adult. Even though I couldn’t remember much, I remembered angwar rimi, Hamdala hotel, durbar hotel [defunct] and Barnawa. Very nostalgic! Many thanks dear Hauwa, for being such an amazing hostess and happy married life to our dear Aíe.

Kamu guest. #Kaduna

In the flurry of activity, I’ve sha ended up in Lagos, which is where I’ll be spending Christmas and I couldn’t have picked better. It’s been a whirlwind and I’ve barely gotten any sleep, but TIGERBLOOD!!! Ha ha

Woke up today like this……. *Food coma*

Easter, Holiday, Travel

Merry Easter…

You’re side eyeing the title of this blog abi? Like who says “merry” Easter? Well…. Me! Of the I-Must-Be-Different-By-Force clan. Ha ha.

Actually, I lie. I don’t say merry Easter, I never have, it sounds odd but some days I just don’t feel like conforming. Who makes these rules sef? Why do we say “happy” new year/Easter but “merry” Christmas? I’m blabbing… Ignore me.

HAPPY EASTER GUUUYSSSSSSSSS!!!  I hope you’re having a lovely Easter holiday and you remember the reason for the season. JESUS.

I was raised Catholic and the Lenten season which heralds Easter is the most important/significant period in the catholic calendar and so I’ve sort of carried that on with me all my life, even after all these years of not being a practicing Catholic [Sorry mum]. But It’s not hard to understand why – the death and resurrection of Jesus as believed by Christians is the bedrock of our faith – because he died, you and I have a chance at a fresh start. And so in this Easter season, I pray for good things for myself and all the readers of this blog. I pray for peace, joy, happiness and a revival of dead/hopeless situations [that are edifying and fall in line with God’s will for your life]. This is not the time to go and try to resurrect that dead ass relationship or friendship because you read here that I prayed for a revival for dead/hopeless situations okay?….. The number you’re dialing is incorrect! Me I no dey ooooo lol.

But, let’s not limit Jesus to money/health type problems only. Guys, there really isn’t any thing you’re going through that you can’t talk to Jesus about. I mean, if you think about properly…. The picture below is an apt summary of Jesus’s suffering on the cross, death & resurrection = Easter.   LMAO! Is this blasphemy? I hope not.

But guys, when someone i’m talking to [boy or girl] reads my messages and doesn’t reply, I want to kick rocks! Fight the air! Swallow bugs. I HATE IT. WITH ALL MY HEART! I think its hella rude. But lemme not lie, I do it too; but I only do it when i’m intentionally trying to rile up the person. Ha! What’s so difficult about sending back a quick “brb/busy”? Even Obama – The POTUS, Leader of the free world – has 5 seconds to spare, so please gerrout with the sloppiness. Its sha nice to know that the God I serve understands my plight, understands how I feel about……. it’s been over a week. He must be dead right? I think he’s dead. If he isn’t, he better fake his death because…. Boy bye! :p

***
I’m in Lagos for the Easter holiday and its been so much fun. I love Lagos for the endless trips. There’s so much to do [when you’re not contending with traffic], so many people to see, so many restaurants to try, so much sushi to be had…. its just awesome. Lagos is great for quick/short visits but I never want to live here permanently, its just too fast for me. Too hectic. Too much. Nope.
PS: We still don’t have any sushi bars in Abuja, so…. Lagos wins!!

I did this makeup myself. Holaaaa….. whoop!

Out and about, just taking in the awesomeness that is Lagos.

Happy Easter Guys… Remain blessed.

Cheers xx
