Dear 9ja foodie….




Just in case you haven't notice I am not speaking to you….


Yep im vexing for you!!!


Why you may ask?


My people please help me judge this matter…


Jejely was I browsing 9ja foodie's website when I saw this link Oven Baked Scotch Egg | 9jafoodie | Modern African Cuisine

That's how I decided to try the thing oh….. after much trauma- translate unsuccessful attempt I ended up with "Squashed eggs" see for yourself





I was visibly traumatised LOL


To make matters worse I sent the picture to my friend who put it up with my name boldly written and tagged it Scotch eggs on her BB dp....

Then she sent me feedback from her contacts one person said the eggs were stubborn and another said she could see the scotch in the eggs LMAO


Not sure I will be "scotching" anything in the near future LMAO


N.B- 9ja foodie, you've figured out what to send me as peace offering or rather appeasement sacrifice haven't you? ;)


Happy weekend everyone!!!

Randoms once again


Hmmmm


What a day! One of our major accounts that we lost due to some silly errors just called us back, God really does give second chances to ALL!!! I'm happy it has certainly made me smile today.
I have been wondering all day why people in Lagos are still greeting each other Happy Easter, Se Easter has come and gone? Abi?
For the past few days I have had to take public buses and even in the few hours my experiences have been enough to blog about :D. This morning,for some reason, when the driver who was also doubling as conductor said I hadn't paid the correct fare I cleared my throat and in my best fone I said "I beg your pardon" **covers face in shame** then I remembered where I was…… silly me! The bus I entered this afternoon had a DVD for our viewing pleasure. He was playing a Pasuma type CD though I was traumatised not only by the music but because the driver kept wanting to watch as well. Thankfully a few mins after the thing stopped showing and the driver spent the rest of the journey changing CDS trying to find one that will show… thank God he didn't crash the car.


The whole experience reminded me of a friend of mine who I ran into a few weeks back, we hadn't seen in many years though I had kept up with her via the media. She's an absolutely brilliant woman that friend of mine. She was even my bunkmate at a time. She's got 1st class degrees(note the plural people) from Havard and the likes…. What I found really funny was the fact that despite all she has at her disposal the "cares" of this world don't seem to interest her. She didn't even drive a car!!! She preferred bussing she says. In this Lagos? I mean no brazillian or Peruvian weave, no Louis Vuitton bag or sandals…. She wasn't even dating anyone!!! She said she didn't seem interested in the regular girl's dream of get married to Leke the bank manager and live happily ever after with your children and pets with loads of domestic servants in Chevron Estate Ikoyi/Lekki or Maitama, Abuja….
It seemed bizarre to me I tell you… she could easily have any job she wanted and earn as much as Goodluck Jonathan sef…..


Na wa.


On the home front things are fine, my son Ayobami too is becoming a Tinsel addict like his mama, the other day he called me "mrs Okoh" and when I exclaimed in shock he said "Amaka Okoh" LOL smallie too dey there. Still refusing to use his potty, he only agrees to pee in the thing when one lifts it right up to his peepee. Naija men sha like to be FULLY served. Mcheeewwwww
I feel like some cake, not good for my weight loss meme I'm told.
I've been quite good by the way, been jogging and doing aerobics. I must win this battle of the bulge :D

i was going to blog about my inlaws today but its my husband's birthday so i decided otherwise....

I wish i could blog down all my thoughts immediately they come to me, it'll save me trying to remember what it was i wanted to blog about LOL

I wonder why we Yoruba people  say 'come and join me' when eating??!!! I've somehow started doing it too even though i don't understand why and don't really want whoever to join me in my meal anyway...

The boys are fine, driving me nuts as usual :D. Now they demand for songs as soon as we get in the car and because they don't know the titles the way they describe it is absolutely ridiculous... Like Ayobami would say 'mummy play "aha" for me and i know he means MI's "beef" or something like that... or he says play "hohohohoho" and it's the no 6 song on MI's CD LOL

In a bid to really shed weight  i am currently sipping some green tea.... i am not enjoying the process but the thought of becoming and remaining a size 18 is even less appealing. My main challenge is reducing portions and cutting out dinner for now.... God help me abeg

My place of work is still full of perplexing moments and i really pray my circumstances change soonest... I went to speak with the Operations manager about getting a seat( i currently share my table with 3 other personnel) and he says really getting a seat for me is a 3 month project.... Ah ah

I'll stop here for now, dont want my green tea getting cold ;)

picking up the pieces 1

Picking up the pieces It may not completely make sense but I want to document this phase I passed through Sometimes life decides to hand...
