Magun.

Okay, I just had to share this story really quick. Remember I wrote a post on infidelity a few weeks ago? Well, just today I heard an interesting story on infidelity. Apparently, there is this police officer in Masaka (outkirts of abuja) who has been having an affair with a junior police officer’s wife. When the junior officer found out (from neighbours) he confronted his wife who denied the allegation, he also went ahead to report to his mother-in-law but instead, she supported her daughter and insulted the son-in-law. The stories continued and so the junior officer went to see […]

Glad To Be Home!

My husband and I just got back from a one week trip to S.A and while it was loads of fun, I am so happy to home. I especially missed my blog pals as the internet access was bad in our resort. It was a good trip. We stayed in Heia Safari Ranch, which is in one village called Mulderdrift. As the name implies, it’s a safari ranch… so we were living with zebras, giraffes, deer and wildebeest (buffalo), it was really cool! The over 1000 hectares ranch is owned by an elderly Afrikaaner man and apart from the animals […]

Husbands & Handbags

No. I ain’t talking about the latest Gucci or Chloe purse. Let me refer you to Naija Dictionary for beginners Handbag (hănd’băg’) pronunciation n. 1. A woman that a man picks up at a party or wherever 2. A woman that a man takes to a party or wherever NOTE: This woman is never one’s spouse or steady girlfriend just a girl on the side. I mean the whole thing is getting annoying. You see a man enter a club and he leaves with a handbag for an unknown destination. The more stories I hear the more disgusted I get. […]

I Got Some New Shirts!

Was pleasantly surprised recently! Have you heard about Davida? She’s a topnotch shirt maker in naija …our very own Thomas Pink. Her shirts are however quite feminine and lovely. Let me see if she has any shirts online …hmm strange she doesn’t even seem to have a website but they look a bit like Nara Camacie shirts but much nicer. Well, my co-wife (don’t worry my husband isn’t polygamous, it’s how I refer to my brother-in-laws wife) and her big sister wanted us to go to a Davida show. I wasn’t really keen because I knew I couldn’t afford any […]

Religious Tolerance

Religious intolerance is something I am so not used to especially as I have experienced growing up with Muslim cousins. Growing up, we were raised to respect and love each other irrespective of religious or tribal persuasions. That’s why I was totally shocked when I heard about the senseless killing of Mrs. Christianah Oluwatoyin Oluwaseesin by some Muslim secondary school students last week in Gombe State. Gombe was carved out of the old Borno State and it is a beautiful place. According to the deceased’s husband Mr Micheal Oluwaseesin who was out of town when the unfortunate incident occurred. “From […]

Braiding My Hair. (Dry Title)

“Aunty keep ya head” I am braiding my hair at a popular Abuja saloon, I brought my laptop to relieve boredom and I also think making hair is such a waste a time that you just have to the maximise it by doing something else, so here I am writing some new posts. I hate making my hair; that’s one of the reasons I cut my hair last year. I just hate going to a saloon and having to wait hours before it’s your turn. Rubbish! Also, I hated that hair dryer. Arrgh! It must have been an angry man […]

Oooooh!

Me, I am tired of this house-help wahala oh! Well, my new girl has been around for a few weeks and I am quite happy with her. She needs no supervision and is very committed to her job. Lois (my old girl), is still around because I want her to finish this term (she is in form 1). I had pretty much decided I would send her home once she was done with her exams …until her dad called. Did I tell you she’s from my town? Please abeg don’t do village connections; we aren’t related but I’ve known her […]
