Reporting live from Nigeria

I am proud to say that preparing for this trip is one of the few times I haven't ran around like a headless chicken plus I didn't miss my flight this time around...I would have gone ballistic on my self if I had...what am I even saying...I am now very time conscious thank you!!!...paying extra cash for a flight booked in advance does that to your psyche remember I said "I changed with a capital C"!!!
Hello blogville and how have you all been? It's been a wonderful holiday for me...so far and I pray it remains so...I am happy to tell you that the Internet service is actually not as slow as the last time time I came to 9ja...you can tell I am totally thankful for that particular miracle...awesome!!!
The first thing I did on landing on naija soil was to go to university of suya @ Allen avenue for loads of suya...hmmmm...tew delicious...and I've been visiting all the mama puts I can lay my eyes on...(highly recommended ones of course)...
Did I tell you Lagos is now very beautiful?...okay I just did!Gosh...I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the round about at Ikeja...I was expecting to see the buses and all the hairdressers etc...men it was clean and beautiful...I thought to myself...who ever did this and saw it through must have a mind of steel and a very strong will...I travelled over the weekend for a party...will be back to Lagos in a minute...to really give proper feedback on 9ja...i.e the various states I've visited in the past one week...!!!
Have a wonderful day at work y'all and please have fun while at it...

Judging A Book By It's Cover


Sometimes we meet people and assess them based on their outward appearance...to our own detriment!!!
Yes our own detriment because this act in it's self is absolutely unwise..."pun intended"!!!
Yours truly is guilty of this from time to time...We sometimes have the tendency to want to box people into compartments we've created for them in our minds...

So a guy who's trousers refuses to cooperate with the force of gravity(lol) is not cool and when a girl wears a scandalous outfit, that makes her a slut....
Gibberish I say!!! Absolute nonsense...it does not work that way...trust me, I should know...
A recent global case is that of the beautiful singer Susan Boyle...I watched the clip on You Tube and when she said she wanted to be as famous as a well known singer,everyone right down to the judges snickered at her and thought she was just another joker...when she opened her mouth to sing, she became a HIT at the cute age of 47!!!(Another blog topic for another day...)

I guess all I'm trying to say is sometimes or should I say oftentimes,we judge people instantly without giving them a chance to prove themselves...I am guilty too and so are you (...sometimes...admit it!!!) but this ought not to be...
Well...guilty or not, let me hear what you have to say on this...have a beautiful week....

P.S
Tried adding the Susan Boyle song but couldn't figure it out...can anyone tell me how to do that...no...I'm not technologically retarded..I just don't have a clue!!!:-)
