2011 so far....from the heart!

Friday 30 December 2011

Sometimes the best way to speak is to speak from the heart.
I am going to try do this also try not to pull things back because I tend to do that sometimes all the time.

Its the last day of 2011 literally although there is just one day to go. I am so thankful to God for bringing us all, yes us all including you reading this post thus far and also for where He is leading us to.
Personally, 2011 has been one heck of a year. I made some decisions that I took wayyy too long to make and some that I did not even in a million years think I was going to have to make. Sometimes things  just do not go according to your own plan because your plan is not good enough for God. I had some plans but He wrote them off and said no that is not what is best for you right now and do you know what? I had no choice than to obey Him because he sure knows best. All of this just brings to my mind "Lean not on your own understanding".

Looking back at 2011, I had days where I was just plain down and nobody could do anything to make me feel better, I had days were I cried my eyeballs out alone in my closet and immediately I stepped out of the door, this sudden smile cropped up and I looked like life was just perfect but deep down inside of me I was shattered, plain hurt and unable to believe and decide.
2011 also made me miss my younger days when I had no care in the world because I was just too young to worry or think about things like I do now.
It was one heck of a year I will say. A year that I cried when I tried to look inwards to see the real Tee because I just couldn't decipher which one I should go with, not that I couldn't really find the real Tee but the fact that I had to make some decisions for a certain Tee to remain or go for good.
Looking back in the days, seeing what I could have done better and what I could have lived without doing but I always tried to hide behind that "everybody makes mistakes" shadow  outside but deep inside I criticised myself so bad and felt extremely bitter all the time.
Its crazy when people ask you "How are you?" and all you say with a smile is "I'm fine thanks". Whenever I answered such question I asked myself- Are you really fine Tee?
2011 was one heck of a year! Have I said that already? Sorry!
At the beginning of the year, I was so ecstatic- you know that New Year feeling, I was hyped but as the year went on, the feeling kind of dropped.
I started my blog at the beginning of the year, so that's something to be happy about.
This year I kinda hid myself from quite alot of people for a personal reason (note the 'a') which sometimes I said to myself" why exactly are you doing this?"
Its crazy because other people just did not think it was worth me hiding but like they say- its only the person wearing the shoes that knows where it hurts and Mayne they just could not wear those shoes.
2011; a year that I kinda look back at now and my eyes fill with tears of mixed emotions and my stomach knots. A friend of mine and myself kinda parted ways partially because my friend thought it was to do with him but I couldn't bring myself to explain to the point where he could understand what I was saying. All of this made me send annoying vibes his way which I did not do intentionally but I hope he understands. I took my anger out on him and hearing things did not help either. I ended up saying things the way they should not have been uttered but I can't and couldn't even explain it to him which also made him say somethings that I am trying to believe he did not mean to say....(I hope so!) We were pretty close friends...I have said it before but I hope you do understand if you do read this.

Moving on, my phone was off for a month in 2011 and people tried reaching me but I was just unable to pick myself up to actually turn on my phone. I cried my eyes out and screamed Jesus's name out so loud that I bet the neighbour must have thought that someone was having a baby(that's what I can think of)! But you know what? He says that the plans He has for each and everyone of us is better than the ones that we have put down.
I guess I relied too much on my plan that it literally shattered me when He pushed it all aside. Lord I'm sorry for going against "Lean not on your own understanding". I guess I got lost in the moment.

I have been away.......hanging out! Merry Xmas!

Saturday 24 December 2011

Hey there bloghearts,

Talk about miss you guys, I have missed you guys so very much you can't even imagine. I should have posted this during the week but I spent the most of Monday on a train going down the map. It was tiring, annoying but trust me it was all worth it.

Before that, Update on my Christmas shopping. I finally got round to doing my Christmas shopping a week exactly before Christmas- Last Sunday!!!!!!! It kind of cost more than it would if I paid a lot of attention to my shopping and if I did it in advance. Also about my Christmas tree, I finally put that up on Thursday evening. Sigh- Thank God for 2011! It was snowing cat and dogs last Christmas but the weather forecast is 15 degrees Celsius max for Christmas- thats awesome.

Ok moving on to the three days of fun story:

I decided to go visit my sister 'Miss Tee' as I'd love to call her here (Yes she is Miss Tee too! and no not Miss Tee from this post and post) as  it was her postgrad grad (you know what I mean) so I hopped on the train to begin the journey there. So being that I hadn't been over to hers in a year- I didn't take much clothes and accessories because I thought I was returning up the map the next day. When I got there- my mind changed with immediate effect.
First up, I left at past 1pm to commence a journey that was meant to last about 4-5 hours max. But my train was delayed and I was carrying this big cake along with me that she had no clue whatsoever about. But due to all the delays and everything guess what happened, I miss the whole grad thing!!!!! I was so mad at myself and the train that I couldn't even talk when everyone was calling to ask where I was. I then texted them all and told them to text me instead cuz I can't talk. I was hiding under the 'tired' excuse when to be honest I was ANGRY!!!
So my sister was kind of getting worried that I was still far away and didn't even worry too much or get too angry that I missed the main show. When I arrived finally at almost 8'o' clock, she was busy taking pictures with her friend in the lounge when I just cropped up behind her. The look on her face when she saw me there was priceless that all the anger flew away with the birds. When she saw the cake too- the expression? undescribeable!
I was totally exhausted as I had not eaten real food all day apart from the couple of short bread biscuits I had on the train. So yea yea yea. She looked so pretty in her dress and all.
When I got upstairs and pushed the door open, my knees just gave way and I fell to the floor because I couldn't even stand anymore- Yes I was that tired! My cousin was there and he was shocked that I fell to the floor.

Anyways yea. So when everything settled down- my sister told me about a party that she was going to the next day and she persuaded me to stay. I jumped and said Yea, sure! not remembering that I didn't bring a lot of accessories and bla bla bla.
Lo and Behold, every other person left for their respective homes and then I was left with the trio making me the fourth and extra one.
Skip to the evening, one of the girls Miss I as I would like to call her on here was meant to go over to her sister's house in Manchester as she was (well she's left now) going over to Nigeria for Christmas.  'Miss I' booked her ticket a week or so ago at a reduced price. She was really excited then came the time for her to leave, she left for the train station with my sister and then she ran back again- I thought she left something and had found it but she returned again with my sister. Apparently, 'Miss I' had misplaced her card as she can only collect her ticket with the card used in booking it. She was really angry- we all helped her in looking for the card but couldn't find it. Then she called her sister and they started shouting at each other over the phone. All I could do was stare because she was obviously really angry.
That went by and it was time for us to get ready for the house party we were to attend. 'Miss I' then decided to come along which was a good idea.
We began the train journey of almost an hour to go stay at a party for about half an hour. I'm not complaining because it was fun and nice to be out.
Missy Tee- I like this picture because my face can't be seen fully.
This was when I was taking pictures for my blog.

Miss I- She was on the phone
for almost the whole journey

Miss I again- she was still on the phone but
 the brolly was kind of away from her face

Miss Tee- She took the picture of  me and
 we both kept dancing on the roads and at the train stations
 to songs from her phone. (It was really loud)!

The last train station before the party destination.
We were waiting for the host to come get us....... I took some pictures, the words above are translated in Welsh below.
.........I couldn't resist.....

I didn't really like what I was wearing because I didn't pay a lot of attention and did not bring the clothes I would have loved to wear along. Anyway thats gone now.
I had so much funnnnnnn- I can't even explain it enough.
Those three days were pure and clean fun.......

Then I left along with Miss I on Wednesday on different trains to the same destination can you imagine but I had to catch a connecting train which was also delayed......sigh!
Miss I and Missy Tee...Miss O took this picture and I absolutely love it. It is perfect.

I've been baking and braiding (my hair that is)....

Sunday 11 December 2011


My sugar bananas!

I told you I'd be back in a few hours well I literally am blogging a few hours

Thanks 9jafoodie  I'm back now. ;-) Please show 9jafoodie's website some love.. and don't forget to sign up!

Well the title is that because it rhymes but yea I've been baking,, braiding and cooking (but this is a psot for another day because I cannot seem to get the pictures up here but yea I'll sort that out for the next post- and 9jafoodies, you inspired the cooking bit!)

I loooovve baking so much that although I am not a professional baker I have sort of professional tools for baking. A non-professional baker would probably jusy have a spatula and a bowl and use spoons to measure and not bother buying the baking tins but just use cup cake cases.....' that's my little idea of what a non-professional baker who just bakes when they have to or for some reason have to bake an impromptu cake. wow look at all that rambling lol Ok back to my point. I do NOT bake all the time but I do sometimes when I just feel like because I think it is a relaxing activity and totally wonderful to bake for people. So I used my pretty WHITE mixer, my red spatula, my white measuring tool and my grey pans (I love the colors thats why I'm showing them off lol).
So I baked a couple of cakes; a carrot and lemon cake.
Like I emphasised above, I am not a professional baker so they definately won't look professionally made. *They are not quite circular and rectangular because I used a baking sheet rather than pour the mix directly into the baking tins so hence the funny shape*. I dint want my fresh looking tins to have burnt or dried marks on them.
So yea here are the little wonders.
PS- everyone that had a bit LOVED it to the fullest. Both cakes only lasted a day!!!!!!!! I would have iced them but due to lack of time and icing....well they still loved it. It was yummy!

Lemon cake

Be back in a minute...

Saturday 10 December 2011

Errr make that a few hours.

Christmas in the air and there's love everywhere- Its Green!

Sunday 4 December 2011


Its been a while since I posted something on here.
Well thanks to everyone who commented on my previous posts. Muchos Gracias!
To the new followers, thank you so much for joining. You guys are fabulous. God bless ya plentayyy!

The weather is gradually changing and its getting colder and colder. No, no snow required please. I have been around doing the norm.
About a couple of weeks ago, after church we went over to a chinese store to get groceries. My shopping companion saw a bag of clean big onions for five bucks. Well, you know Nigerians- we bought the onions and then this particular guy insisted on carrying the big heavy back to the boot of the car for me. I felt he was being nice, he actually works in the chinese store- so I was thankful and led the way. After dropping the heavy bag in the boot, he asked;
Guy- Do you have a boyfriend?  (in the most mumbled german or whatever accent I've ever heard- I wonder how I was able to make out what he said)
Tee- Why do you ask?
Guy- I like you- you know?
Tee- (Bursts out laughing) Oh! Thanks a lot, thanks (walks away)
I couldn't help but laugh. On my way outta the store, he positioned himself in a place where I could see him- however I walk out acting like I didn't even know he was standing there. 'Twas funny.

A while ago too, I had to get the bus so on while getting off the bus- I realised this particular guy seeking my attention; I thought he was lost or something so therefore being a nice missy that I am *wink*, I stopped to hear him and possibly help him out if I could.
The next thing he said was;
Guy- Excuse me, do you leave around this area?
Tee- How may I help?
Guy- I am interested in you, are you interested in me?
Tee- Are you kidding me? I'm sorry I gotta leave. Chao!

So these things still happen in this day and age? You've gats to be kidding me.
Guys are really brave mayne! I bet some other ladies could have provided them with wonderful insults and do they actually think ladies will agree to their on the spot request. I don't even know your name, never seen you face before....... wow. God bless the brothers out there! Amen someborri?!

Christmas is in exactly 21 days and its not even funny- I don't even have a christmas list! I normally am organised when it comes to Christmas but I dunno what happened this time.
I love the Christmas-sy atmosphere, you get and give gifts, its cosy majority of the time and so on.
Oh well darlings, whatever gift you get from me this christmas; even if it isn't as nice- just know that I love ya! (Apology for not planning in advance). LOL!
Gotta hit the stores next weekend.....

In order gist, I'mma be braiding my hair in a few days and I'm pretty hyped about it; I've been announcing that I might braid it over two days because I am not one for sitting in the same chair for HOURS- Uhmmmmm Na! So yea. I'll probably take a picture of it and put it up here.

Till then, I leave you with this song that has been on replay for a while now;
The young man singing at 4.23 is ..........*clears throat*. I looooove his voice.

Have a good Christmas!

Love y'all

Missy Tee signs out for now.........

Where is their energy from?

Tuesday 22 November 2011

I love wedding dances and all that gist because I think its cute and very nice.
For some crazy reason, I discovered this video on Youtube and all I could do was drop my jaw. Goodness where did their energy emanate from? The girls dancing like the guys and vice versa. I said to myself, Tee you can't even dance as fast and 'aggressive' like them so don't even picture yourself doing it.
They were also a bit clumsy maybe it was an impromptu thing but they still danced good. The song sounds South African and the fact that they kept repeating it was pretty uhmmm amazing..........also the second guy at 03.07 onwards cracked me up.
All in all, they are pretty energetic- maybe they had Gatorade mixed with Baileys topped with Barcadi- the energy is over the top. Lol.

PS- No insults or disrespect intended. They all did a good job!
I'd also like to thank Sasimalia of The making of Mrs Ndem's blog for the versatile blogger award. Bless you plenty. *Hugz* And please do check her blog- this young lady literally planned and organised her own wedding, she is good!
Please visit 9jaFoodie's website and do register as well!

Submission in marriage? So so. In a relationship- Boy Purleaseee!

Friday 18 November 2011

Ladies are not speechless. Source
Hey there sugar-sugar,

How’s it going? Christmas is drawing near-no no no Christmas shopping hasn't started pour moi!

The heading is that because I really don’t know what to type up there.

Well I am talking about submission today! This topic came to my mind when I remembered a question a friend of mine asked me months ago. 

I believe submission in marriage is half and half where the wife submits and the husband.......- therefore removing the hierarchy and creating a mutual view of each other. And in a relationship, its half and quarter (lol).

You see at weddings, almost every wedding I have attended whenever the elderly men do approach the microphone to give a speech or advice to the couple, they always say- "Bride- be submissive to your husband" but they never seem to have anything to say to the groom. That drives me gaga because it feels like they are saying "Bride- you've got no power whatsoever because this man is now your boss" errrrrr I don’t think so!

And whenever the older women give a piece of advice, they say- respect your husband because they've had decades to sharpen themselves up and to understand what it really means to be submissive so they don't really agree with the submission gist.

It’s in the bible quite alright, 1 Peter 3.1 it says and I quote
 "In the same way, you wives be submissive to your own husbands so that even if any of them are disobedient to the word, they may be won without a word by the behaviour of their wives".  

We are human and we interpret things differently- I interpret this as- if he is acting up, leave him be and respect his opinions so that he will (when he is disobedient and realises) understand why you let him be and return to his normal self. Now you all might interpret that differently from what I said up there but you see people take this as something else. However, this is only a small portion of how I understand this verse. The rest for another day.

It also says in Ephesians 5.22;
'Wives submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord'.

When it comes to saying "be submissive"- I don't think it means be a I see people often take this 'be submissive' thing too far. When you get married, you are becoming someone's companion, second half, and so on and so forth not someone's maid or dummie!

I often see people (wives) being treated like they are maids. The husband comes home and she is the one that has to remove his shoes, pick his suitcase , iron his clothes for tomorrow, cook his food every blessed day, wash his plates, cut his nails and all that...sugar are you serious?. I believe you should be doing those because you feel like not because he "bought" you and then you have to do it because he sees it as your duty or you are destined to do that. It is a lady's duty but it should be divided amongst each other but really is that what being submissive is all about?

I wanna be FAT + Halloween + Random

Monday 31 October 2011

Hey darling.
Sorry I've been away for too long.
Thanks a lot to The Relentless Builder for the Versatile Blogger award. It is much appreciated. Thanks darl!. Please do visit the Relentless Builder's blog. Its amazing.
Welcome to the new followers and everyone that checked up on me, Thank you!!! ;-)

Yea you read that right.
I am so tired of being skinny slim miss thing. It is getting really annoying. There is no day someone doesn't comment about my height and weight.
Flipping through magazines and I am like I won't mind having a little bit of fat here and there and over here and over there.
Don't give me that chubby gist, I want to have a little bit more flesh here and there.
Sometimes, I get really hyped with myself looking in the mirror saying;
"look at you, miss perfect figure (I wish)- not too thin, not FAT, just past the borderline, you go girl""
Other days I'm like;
"look at you, you are so skinny, when you are not a model- eat some food Tee!"

I do have conversations with myself alot so pls do not think I am going "gaga".

My next door neighbour has been pestering me for a long time about going for a photoshoot, telling me to set up a model portfolio and take them to agencies- she went as far as telling me she'd go with me if I am too shy to go alone. I just kept telling her- OK I'll do it. This has been on for over 2 years and right now, I literally run away from her. When I see her coming from the north, I turn sharply to the east because I've totally run out of excuses now. But she thinks I am not too slim, other people have told me to "keep your stature this way, don't eat junk food so as not to spoil your figure" and my response is a sarcastic grin and the thought of Yea right, quit psyching me.
Others have simply told me- Tee, try eat some more food and I'm like I do eat and they say to me but not much (which is true). I get filled to the brim quite easily so yea.
But for ye ladies who are good at gaining and losing weight without stress, can you give tips on this one?

In other news, its  halloween day today and I kept looking at little kids dressed in scary outfits and all. What came to my mind was what my great grandmother would have said- Why are all these children dressed like witches and wizards, are they going mad? (translate that to Yoruba if you can). She was hilarious. bless her.

I do apologise for being MIA for over 2 weeks. Although I commented on blogs, I was doing that in motion so I haven't actually been able to blog for a bit for that reason.

 I was thinking about this the other day and I felt you guys might find it weird;

Can u henmargine? (Like seyi-law 'd say) if you haven't figured that I love comedy then you are ...............wait for it. .............bewreeful. Anyway, they always say there is no place like home. True that but honestly, somethings we complain about are really fun things and if we were to get rid of them then the boredom would start FULL TIME.
You see, Nigeria is amazingly amazing and the things people complain about daily I find interesting and fun. Here we go -

Traffic- oh wow. Traffic in Lagos for sure is fun to me. Lemme explain myself before you cut my head off. I love being stuck in road traffic with someone I am head over heels for. Someone that will make me laugh and someone I can say anything and everything to. It is when we are stuck in traffic that the bonding occurs the most but fresh air better be flowing if not, I'll be a bit cranky.

NEPA/PHCN moments- When they do their thing during the day and its not so wise to turn on a generator, these moments are fabulous because you get to joke around with people, play games, know weird and random things about people

Mechanics- watching them is quite amusing. They are characters and wonderful. The way they talk, shout, joke, play and sing. Watching them is my thing so what I do is stay in a corner where they can barely see me and watch them. Its like a 3D movie playing before your eyes.

NB- I do nag about these things sometimes but its kinda enjoyable at times.


Lastly, during my cousin's wedding a few years ago, she decided to get married in a far away city in Nigeria and cheerfully chose me as a maid of honor along with mon sisto. (She wasn't into the whole long train thing so she had 2 maids of honor). We had to stay over at a hotel and my sister and I were hungry one night and we decided to order some food. I don't know what I was thinking- we had no menu, so we sillyingly (if there is a word like that) asked for Spaghetti Bolognaise, thinking they might actually have it;
Tee- Hi, we'd like to order some food please?
Person on the other end of the phone- What would you like? (not giving us options)
Tee (on sister and I's agreement)- Do you have Spaghetti Bolognaise?
Person......- No, we only have Dangote

....Dangote is a spaghetti brand in Ng.

Hae a fab one loves,
As usual, apologies for the typos if any, I'll edit it soon. Its 23.15pm. Sleep time.


Sunday 16 October 2011


Hey darlings,

How are you? Looking forward to the new week? Well I bet its gonna be a great one thanks to God in advance.
Ok so all of a sudden I just started singing this song and I didn't realise when I went on Youtube and just typed in  "Fall in Love" and ever since its been on replay. I'm like "I'm in love, are you in love?"
So I think I'm in love- hey, love is love right?"

Have a fab one !


Spoiled brats + Beyonce's bump

Wednesday 12 October 2011

Hey sweeties,

I decided not to let this day go by without me punching my keyboard buttons to blog.
The weather has been quite unique this week. Its been raining non stop since last Thursday/Friday I think. Well it does kinda stop for an hour or less and then starts again. Its not heavy rain though but its like spraying. If you stay in it for about 5 mins, you'd start looking like you are sweating on a lovely morning which isn't quite cool.

Moving on from the weather, on my way back to the humble abode, I spotted an old lady with her grandson. The little "brat" (as I choose to call him here) was running well ahead of his nan. The poor nan had a bag in one of her hands and looked like she couldn't wait to get to her destination.
Suddenly suddenly (D'banj's voice), this little BRAT saw a pair of socks lying in the middle of a minor road with cars moving in both directions. He ran to the middle of the road and picked the dirty socks and threw them in a puddle by the road side and made a splash. This poor woman stressed her aging lungs and throat shouting at this lil brat to STOP IT RIGHT NOW in her typical Yorkie accent. She yelled and kept yelling at him to quit it but he did not listen.

A peaceful dude minding his business was walking past and this little boy picked the socks and did a twirl with them in his hands thereby splashing dirty water on his pretty looking pants. I couldn't help but squint as though he was a lil kid I knew. Deep in my mind, I was yelling at him even though it din't escape my mouth and I couldn't tell him to stop because his nan was walking closer to him with each step she took, getting ready to spank him with her other hand.
I never thought the old woman could pick herself off the floor like that. She ran so fast that the lil brat himself took off running. But he ran facing on coming traffic's direction, he wasn't paying attention to see if any car was approaching. He wasn't scared of getting hit by a car. He kept running and this old lady who doesn't wanna lose her grandson started yelling again. She had obviously had enough of the boy and was sick and tired of his company for the day.
He ran up a hilly bend which was extremely dangerous because he could have been hit by a car so easily because it is a sharp bens with no driver being able to see ahead until they are past the bend. No one would have seen him there.
To be honest, the lil brat annoyed me.
I thought- Supernanny can't even do anything for this boy, buy him a one way to ticket to a certain country located in West Africa. I am not stating country names here hmmmm.

The next thing that came to my mind was "How I wish he was in Africa, shouting would have only been the tip of the iceberg".
Running on a road in the direction of oncoming cars and you are being told to stop and you are not listening? hmmm *shaking my head in disgust with a sarcastic laugh* . That day the brat will understand the difference between sugar cane and stinging cane, star jump and frog jump, stool down and point to the ground, ride a motorcycle on the wall and ride your scooter, stand in the corner with your hands up (Praise the Lord) and go in the naughty corner.
I love my African peeps especially the teachers- mayne they were good. Did they study "how to disciple students when they did their teacher training?

Thats the story of the little brattie brat. Gosh that little muffin case annoyed me!!

Moving on to other news, I read about Beyonce's baby bump on Linda Ikeji's blog and its making me hope it isn't true because that would make me really mad at Beyonce if she really is............not!
But lets wait now, we'll see who the baby looks like when he or she arrives and we'll do some calculations.

Also, lately I have noticed that guys have started using DEAR quite a lot now. Its something that I find weird because it was never their thing to call or refer to people as "dear" but they all use it now. Even uncles or cousins that were like hardcore before, when you say
Tee- Good evening cuz or uncle
Uncle or Cousin- Good evening dear, how are you dear?
Tee- Uncle, can I use your phone?
Uncle- Yes dear
Tee- Uncle can I use your credit card?
Uncle- No..........dear!

I'm not complaining, guys please continue using dears and darlings, it makes you more approachable. I will sure think that someone who uses dear and all is quite soft and kind on the inside.

You all know I luv ya right?

Have a fab one!

PS- I know the picture doesn't match the story but I kinda think its cute. Although I love puppies, that dont mean that sharing ice cream that way is something sensible to do. And also apologies for the typos if any. I'll do some good editing soon.

All work and no joke makes Charlie a! A smile won't hurt.

Friday 7 October 2011


Gotta chill out sometimes I felt these might put a smile on your face if not a big smile or a loud laugh.

Nigerians are so HILARIOUS!
Wait a minute- I think people from other countries do ask such questions. Like seriously?
Here are a few questions;

You went home and came back to school and your friend sees you getting on the shuttle bus or something and says-
Friend- Are you back?
Tee-No I am still in Saudi Arabia, it is my carbon copy or photocopy standing in front of you

Sees you at the beach-
Friend- What are you doing here at the beach?
Tee- I have come to do some shopping on the water

Sees you at a restaurant-
Friend- What are you doing here?
Tee- I have come to watch save the last dance part 7

Sees you in church-
Whats up, How come you are here?
I have come to see a movie

Sees you at the cinema
Hey long time, what are you here for?
I have come to pay school fees

Sees you in a store
Friend - What are you doing in this store?
Tee- I have come to just do some sight seeing.

Goodness we can be funny at times and YES I do ask these dumb questions sometimes too especially "Are you back?"
Hmm don't shine your thirty two like you don't.

Did that put a smile on your face?
If it dint, then you really really really need to take it easy, take a break along with a chill pill. ;-) You are not mahogany wood or whatever. Wood is wood!

Have a fab one!

PS- a lil tired at the moment, been blowing my nose all day. I hate having a cold. I had to buy a long pack of tissue. I'll post some better things by tomorrow or so.



What a week?! Weather-wise.

Thursday 6 October 2011

Hey there my lovely bloghearts!

How are you all doing?
So summer is officially over!!!!! Grrrrrrrrrrrr
The weather last week was fabulous. It was like 20-something degree and cold water was flowing like .....errr.....water. (duh!) I made sure I kept a bottle in my handbag all the time and I kept topping it up every half hour I should say? It was that warm but I wasn't complaining hence the pictures from Saturday. Rather wear tank tops that a sweater.
So on Sunday morning, I had to go out at about 6.30am and it was still warm. I stepped out in a casual tee and took a mini sweater along just incase. At almost 8am, then I put my sweater as it was getting chilly. While I was enjoying the morning sight and weather someone amazing said Oh Tee, do you know it is supposed to get colder today? and I thought to myself "Thanks for that information NOT!". That made my body go into- "its really chilly" mode and ever since then the summer clothes have been traded for warm cosy attires. But I still wanted to enjoy the "last day of summer" and the sight.
So I took these pictures AGAIN!....I know I know.
Sun gradually rising

and then it completely arose!
So I went back home to bed and totally slept off. In other words, I ended up getting up late for church. Lord please forgive me! ;-)

The day was lovely and the weather was fabulous. Fast forward to Wednesday, the weather was hinting to get your thermal attires out. Boots were stamping the dry fallen leaves. Cups of tea were flowing like water (now that reads right. lol).
The trees are preparing for their annual leave...

.....some leaves have already decided to leave

And then the skies became a beauty to behold.....
Autumn showing its color...

Windy and rainy evening

The evening blue skies
But the weather became so so so so cold- and then the hailstorm was jaw dropping If it is 8 degrees now then what is it going to be in December.
All in all, we thank God for another October and so on.

Once again, enjoy the pictures and don't worry, I'll try to resist taking similar snaps.



From my camera point of view- Sunset and Sunrise

Saturday 1 October 2011

Hey there!

So a few days ago, on my way out and in, the sun was shining so bright and it was so beautiful. God has got a great and wonderful taste. He makes all things beautiful.
I just had to point and shoot as in point my phone at it and (shoot) pictures (not the other way round *wink*). People kept staring at me taking pictures but I was like "aint you seen a pretty girl taking pictures of the sun before?" LOL.
I just can't stop saying- it was a pretty sight and yea I bet you are thinking- whats wrong with her now? I'm just going to click away from this.....please don't!!
Admire the pictures as I do!
PS- Thinking to myself- my phone actually did a good job....maybe I should use the camera more often.

The Palms Trip/Pizza Ordeal

Monday 26 September 2011

Normal Pizza Source
What’s popping blog hearts?
If I call this ordeal- it makes it sound like something really horrible which it partly is but there isn’t another word that can fit it so hence the heading.
Ok so my sibling and I decided to go to The Palms in Lagos to have a wander about. We decided on our way there that we were going to get pizza so we could munch on en route to the humble abode (if we got stuck in traffic so we don’t starve). Immediately, my head went to Pizza Hut kind of pizza or Costco pizza which I am absolutely head over heels for. My taste buds were dancing makossa and my stomach was making funny noises thereby prompting me to hurry up in getting the pizza in there.
Anyways, we arrived at The Palms and were walking about and oh yea lemme tell you this; I saw Ify- this girl that did uhmm Big Brother Africa years back? May I mention that her outfit made me sweat on the spot? My darling Ify was wearing high heeled suede ankle boots that looked really warm and nice, skinny jeans and long sleeved turtleneck with sunshades and hair that had bangs and covered her ears. I was over 37oC in the tank top with a pair of jeans that I had on, I was already melting and could not wait to enter some place that had at least a fan. So I looked at myself thinking “are we in winter and my body is not feeling it or what?”
 When I saw her, I felt the effect of being in those clothes when I wasn’t even in them! Trust me if you had seen her you’d have thought it was winter and considering that the temperature was over 30oC and rising, you would have been sweating on the spot. As in I was like- Sister, are you not sweating in this winter attire in over 30 degrees? I was dazed. I had to drag the sibling along to avoid a scene as the laughter was about to get really loud...moving on!
So we went around and around. We went into Shoprite I think (that’s the Wal-Mart-like store there right? When I walked in I thought it was Wal-Mart) and I came out with a cheese sandwich (which melted when we got outside) and this long sachet of bubble gum which I was hyped about because I hadn’t seen it in years.
My people hmmm we got to where we were to order the pizza- I don’t want to mention what the place is called because it is someone’s business hmm *lips sealed*. Anyway, this lady walked up to me and said “what would you like to order?” handing me a menu. I looked through the menu and ordered a spicy meat feast pizza- goodnessssssss why did I pick that?
I then dropped 1500 for the pizza which was unbelievable for what was sold but my taste buds and stomach pushed me to drop the money. Sometimes, it’s good to look at what you are buying before dropping money for it. Then the waiting time started, I waited and waited and waited- the sibling was on the phone so I was bored out of my mind waiting for the so-called pizza. When the pizza finally arrived, I did not open it so the next destination was straight out of the mall but along the way I spotted KFC and got Ice cream oh thank God for that Ice cream if not hmmm.
When we stepped out under the frying sun- I was hurrying into the car before the cheese on the pizza overmelts (see me thinking that I was carrying Papa John’s Pizza). So I balanced myself well in the seat and start with something cold- the Ice cream. When I lifted the pizza box - you know when you are overly excited because of pizza and you can’t wait to just tuck in and you feel like you can’t open the box any faster and there is this song playing in your head and its getting louder as you are about to reveal the pizza and all of a sudden you open the box and the song screeches to a halt and you are like WHAT IS THIS? I felt like it was a movie playing and a joke or someone was playing a prank. I was dazed- come and see pizza. It was as flat as the baking pan, behind it was a mixture of flour and burnt bits, the cheese was so thin and the so called meat feast was more like meat fasting, the peppers on it were like minute hair rubber bands. The sibling gave me a “that’s Las-gidi for ya” look. I said to myself “hmm Tee, don’t judge a book by its cover- try it first and don’t let that dushh waste like that”
So I had one slice and was like hmm this is very tasty NOT! and see me that was starving myself for pizza. I had a couple of slices and just went straight to the ice cream. The ice cream made more sense than the fried bread that they called pizza. I was like if pizza doesn’t work, let’s try the cheese sandwich- the cheese sandwich melted already. All I could do was just chuckle and down some water to apologise to my taste buds and stomach- they were real mad at me.
When I arrived home, I travelled straight to the kitchen to get some food that made sense rather than that their stomach upset in a box. Ptschewwwww
Talk soon…
Have a good one loves!

Boys sagging + Army Uniform

Tuesday 20 September 2011

Hey there bloghearts!
How is your week going?
So today, I was on my way to do some transactions after visiting a store and I saw this cyclist (almost typed cycler there LOL) anyway, this guy was standing on his bicycle (I don't know if there is a word for that). All of a sudden, I looked up and his underwear was hanging out and his pants were literally under his butt. I frowned in disgust and said to myself "why are you wearing the pants then? Why dont you just wear only your boxers about?"
I absolutely hate when boys think it is cool to "sag" their pants. It is highly disgusting. I don't wanna see your boxers hanging out neither do other people...that is why you have something called a "BELT". Use it, thank God they come in all shapes and sizes, color and swag hehe.
But why do they sag though?
There are some people that sag so much that they are actually walking in a weird way to keep their pants from falling to the ground. So when it falls to the grounds maybe that is when you'll be excited. They are trying to be like the boys in the "hood". Very soon they will be putting their pants on wheel barrow all because they want to sag. Even if by force you wanna sag, then sag with sense!! For crying out loud.
Also on Monday, I saw this young army in uniform and I went into "Oh my daisy, Army in uniform in front of me" mode.
From the back, he looked so good. His sleeves neatly folded up and held secure by a button, his beret well worn to the side, his uniform was fitted, the material looked crisp and the colours on the uniform where very much intact, no sign of fading. His hair was neat and he was neat in general. He walked past and I said to myself hmmm he looks good, no wonder people like men in the Army. Anyways, when he completely went out of sight, I looked away and said "Oh well", not expecting him to walk past again.
Guess what? He walked past again and when I looked at his face, I was "Ugh he's just a baby". he had an innocent face and looked so young. Deep down, I was like "is this the person I was looking at from behind that he looked so good". I wanted to hiss but hey you don't want to be deemed as attention seeking in a cabin full of people. Not all that glitter is gold, not all the people in army uniform are...............(fill in the gap).

I rest my typing pen.
Have a good one!

Day 30: One thing you are excited for

Hmmm Christmas is coming soon so that is one thing to be excited for. Its half and half,you get pressies but you also have to give pressies *grinding teeth*. Before then, there are a few people getting hitched e.g close friend's sibling and others so that is something exciting, so those should be interesting.
I officially completed the 30 day challenge. When I started, it felt as though I was not going to keep up with it. I am glad I was able to squeeze sometime out to keep up with the days even if I did two or three in a day. praise be to Jah (like my cousin will say).

Well to every single person that commented on posts, read the posts, glanced at it, chuckled at them, gave them straight faces *lol* I say THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
To my follower, friends, readers and fellow bloggers.....Merci beaucoup.
Please continue reading, commenting and following.

30 day challenge is hereby a completed task. Kapishhhhhhhhh

Day 29: Five weird things you like


Day 29........five weird things I like: (this might shock you)

  • The scent of Ariel washing powder- I love the scent that comes off (the dust). It smells so good makes one wish it was a edible. lol
  • Dust- not now but before, I used to love the smell of dust in Nigeria. During hamattan, when the dust is all over, I used to take a very deep breath and always get a bad cold as the end result.
  • Taking the dishes out of the sink and then arranging them in order before washing them up e.g- cutlery to one side, wares to one side (I'm weird like that)
  • Laying the bed while sitting on it/ talking to myself in the mirror
  • having a chat with elderly people- they talk real sense
LoL....that was a duper tricky....anyways next up Day 30.
Don't touch that  X button, if you do ehn may.................................................Mac foundation fit your facial complexion LOL.
At least I have done this one. hmm
