How Do I Stay Physically Fit With No Motivation To ExerciseSaturday June 15 2013:
I don't know how many times my phone alarm rang but its hard work and tenacity woke me nonetheless. I didn't sleep again till morning. I have no intention of running this morning. I gained a few calories last night I intend to guard it jealously. If I run this morning, I will run into calorie credit. A dull ache hitchhiked to the morning in my head. I don't know when it got there and it held on without letting go.


How Do I Stay Physically Fit With No Motivation To Exercise.
It's good to be physically and mentally fit. Regular exercise helps ensure both physical and mental fitness. Regular exercise is a disciplined healthy lifestyle. When you focus on elaborate schedules of making money, include a portion for exercise My brother came downstairs around six, he tried to get me to run. He got me a running shoe, big a** shorts that gives a mental picture of me in hoopla hoops. I appreciate your gesture but don't waste resources on project Get-Nwabu-to-run, it’s a terribly bad investment. He eventually got the message which I massaged subtly into his mind and he gave up. Seriously I need to get my act together. I have a few reasons for not running like I used to. For instance I lose weight fast. Truth is I want to gain weight. The crew I run with has a motto; Eat Less, Exercise More, Lose Weight, Make Money! Mine for now is; Eat More, Exercise More, Gain Weight, Make Money! So you see our motivation for exercise is not in perfect sync.

I checked the time it was somewhat half past six, that’s good I have enough time before going to church for Saturday sanitation by 8:00 am.

Scary Instant Sleep
I lay on the bed engaging my phone. It was like the present was abruptly cut and shoved into the future in a split second. I opened my eyes and it was 8:28 am. WHAT?! When did I doze off and slept for approximately two hours?! By the time I managed to get dressed and go outside, few of the runners were already back. Imagine when my boss, an active member of the snails squad in the Road Warrior Team is back already. I didn't see the sleep coming at all. That could've been death.


Cleanliness Is Next To Godliness
I got home energized. I did thorough cleaning of the whole room. I cleared all the trash under the bed. I mopped the carpet very well. I fixed the torn part of the carpet. It took me a great deal of time to painstakingly and carefully to do the cleaning. I have not touched under the bed since the Ibe and wife jumped ship. Their regular trademark is richly stamped all over under the bed. I had to rush out of the house to Spar when the job was about 90% complete. I had already planned to wake up my kitchen skills again with a worthy welcome back dish. I bought some grocery from Spar. I also bought food with ice cream and some yoghourt drinks. I did justice to the food immediately I got home. I stayed indoors throughout the rest of the day.

Food For Thought
If you are like me, you want to gain weight, eat more, exercise more and make money, the natural thing to do is to find a new running crew who share similar ideology. Make more money so you can eat more. Eat healthy weight gain foods and also indulge in healthy weight gain activities. Do other forms of exercise besides running. You can walk, swim,  etc. I swim regular. Watch word is to live a healthy lifestyle.

Friday June 14 2013: Today is World Blood Donor Day!
This year' theme is "Give The Gift Of Life: Donate Blood" In the same light I plead the blood of Jesus Christ for the world. That blood is ever sufficient. The blood of Jesus doesn't discriminate. That blood is compatible with any blood group. The blood of Jesus Christ protects those who believe in it. The blood washes away all sins, infirmities and life misfortunes. If you haven't subscribed to the blood of Jesus, please hurry before it's too late.

Nigerian Danfo Bus Experience
I stayed up from around 2:00am till a few minutes after when I dozed off. I knew I was going to pay by waking up late in the morning and I did. I washed a few boxers, showered and off to work. I shared the front seat with an elderly lady. The gentle Nigerian bus conductor forgot to ask me for money. I gave it to him nevertheless. The woman noticed it and commented on it. The bus conductor couldn't get my balance cuz I gave him N500 note. She offered to pay for me instead to save the poor guy the trouble. I thanked her.  Its one of the nice Nigerian danfo bus experience.

The day moved really fast. I bought a bottle of champagne and red wine for a little get together at Dalu’s place. We work hard, it's only right we play hard. Later in the evening we went over Dalu’s place. We were the first to arrive. Light refreshments started immediately. I love the ambiance of his place. His wife is a very beautiful young looking lady. You can’t even tell she has two boys! On top of that, I hear she got great behaviour and attitude deposited in her.

Exquisite Home Air Refresher
There were so many different kinds, designs and makes of air refreshers, the house smelt like olfactory orgasm. The smell for a first timer is so exotic and will instantly influence your mood as it plays on your memories and fantasies of wonderful things. I’m sure they are accustomed to the smell by now. He has really beautiful art works, not many as to be a clutter. Family pictures were part of the decorations too. You can’t miss them. It is just an exquisite setting. I'm seriously thinking of starting an air refresher business.

Party Food/Refreshments And Discussions
Slowly the place got filled up. Then the food came out. More drinks came out. I don't even know all the people here. The alcohol keep flowing, Dalu's two boys refused to go to bed. I ate the much I can. I also drank the much I can. My calories level must’ve shot up by now. Luckily I belong to the club that wants their calorie up though I run with the club that wants their calorie down. There were so many groups discussing different topics of interest, mostly money. In this setting you can exchange privileged valuable information to help each other’s business or career.

Men's Six Pack Talk
Imagine my surprise when I stumble on a group of grown men discussing Craig David's six pack buffed picture on Linda Ikeji Blog! You guys visit Linda's blog too? Which spell is Linda using? I have a blog too you know! I saw that post on her blog but ignored it. It's amazing the huge response from readers on abysmally shallow posts. The internet culture is a funny one, you'll be surprised the age bracket that sieve through Linda Ikeji's Blog daily on their internet journey.

All good things come to an end. People left at different times depending on individual's convenient time. I don't even know what time we left. I slept at my brother's place.

Call To Action
Based on what I shared with you today take time to unwind from everyday stress. Take vacation if you will. It's a healthy lifestyle, live healthy. Investment in your health is very essential and should come first. Don't over indulge in wining and dining to avoid creating medical situation for yourself. Put some air refreshers in your home and make it smell sweet, fresh and inviting to you and your guest. Hit the internet once in a while free useful information abound there.

7 Health Tips Of Right Response To Body Pains
Pain is a necessary evil. No one wants it, yet it's the body's way of getting your attention when something is wrong. You're probably sufficiently in tune with your body to know when the pain is just a bother, perhaps the result of moving furniture a day or two before or eating that third enchilada. It's when pain might signal something more serious that the internal dialogue begins:

"OK, this isn't something to fool around with."
"But I can't miss my meeting."
"And how many meetings will you miss if you land in the hospital?"
"I'll give it one more day."

You need a guide so you'll understand which pains you must not ignore -- and why. And, of course, if in doubt, get medical attention.

7 Health Tips On Right Response To Body Pains
1.  Worst Headache of Your Life
Get medical attention immediately. If you have a cold, it could be a sinus headache. But you could have a brain hemorrhage or brain tumor. With any pain, unless you're sure of what caused it, get it checked out.

When someone says they have the worst headache of their life, "what we learned in medical training was that was a classic sign of a brain aneurysm. Go immediately to the ER."

2.  Pain or Discomfort in the Chest, Throat, Jaw, Shoulder, Arm, or Abdomen
Chest pain could be pneumonia or a heart attack. But be aware that heart conditions typically appear as discomfort, not pain. "Don't wait for pain. Heart patients talk about pressure. They'll clench their fist and put it over their chest or say it's like an elephant sitting on their chest."

The discomfort associated with heart disease could also be in the upper chest, throat, jaw, left shoulder or arm, or abdomen and might be accompanied by nausea. "I'm not too much worried about the 18-year-old, but if a person has unexplained, persistent discomfort and knows they're high risk, they shouldn't wait. "Too often people delay because they misinterpret it as [heartburn] or GI distress. Call 911 or get to an emergency room or physician's office. If it turns out to be something else, that's great."

Intermittent discomfort should be taken seriously as well. "There might be a pattern, such as discomfort related to excitement, emotional upset, or exertion. For example, if you experience it when you're gardening, but it goes away when you sit down, that's angina. It's usually worse in cold or hot weather."

A woman's discomfort signs can be more subtle. Heart disease can masquerade as GI symptoms, such as bloating, GI distress, or discomfort in the abdomen. It's also associated with feeling tired. Risk for heart disease increases dramatically after menopause. It kills more women than men even though men are at higher risk at any age. Women and their physicians need to be on their toes."

7 Health Tips On Right Response To Body Pains
3.  Pain in Lower Back or Between Shoulder Blades
Most often it's arthritis. Other possibilities include a heart attack or abdominal problems. "One danger is aortic dissection, which can appear as either a nagging or sudden pain. People who are at risk have conditions that can change the integrity of the vessel wall. These would include high blood pressure, a history of circulation problems, smoking, and diabetes."

4.  Severe Abdominal Pain
Still have your appendix? Don't flirt with the possibility of a rupture. Gallbladder and pancreas problems, stomach ulcers, and intestinal blockages are some other possible causes of abdominal pain that need attention.

5.  Calf Pain
One of the lesser known dangers is deep vein thrombosis (DVT), a blood clot that can occur in the leg's deep veins, and it can be life-threatening. The danger is that a piece of the clot could break loose and cause pulmonary embolism[a clot in the lungs], which could be fatal. Cancer, obesity, immobility due to prolonged bed rest or long-distance travel, pregnancy, and advanced age are among the risk factors.
Sometimes there's just swelling without pain. If you have swelling and pain in your calf muscles, see a doctor immediately.

6.  Burning Feet or Legs
In some people who don't know they have diabetes, peripheral neuropathy could be one of the first signs. It's a burning or pins-and-needles sensation in the feet or legs that can indicate nerve damage.

7.  Vague, Combined, or Medically Unexplained Pains
Various painful, physical symptoms are common in depression. Patients will have vague complaints of headaches, abdominal pain, or limb pain, sometimes in combination.
Because the pain might be chronic and not terribly debilitating, depressed people, their families, and health care professionals might dismiss the symptoms. Furthermore, the more depressed you are, the more difficulty you have describing your feelings. All of this can lead the clinician astray.
Other symptoms must be present before a diagnosis of depression can be made. Get help when you've lost interest in activities, you're unable to work or think effectively, and you can't get along with people. And don't suffer silently when you're hurting.

There's more to depression than deterioration of the quality of life. It has to be treated aggressively before it causes structural changes in the brain. Take better health care of yourself. Live a healthy lifestyle.

Wizkid Replaces Crashed Porsche With Brand New One ** OJB In New Of N15Million For Kidney Transplant
Barely two weeks after Wizkid escaped death after crashing his N15million Porsche Panamera in an accident in Lekki, Wizkid has replaced the car. The young Nigerian music star posted his new ride on his Instagram page early today with the caption #blessed!. I’m happy for him.

On another development OJB Jezreel is in need of N15million for a kidney transplant. A life is given at the same time a life is taken. It is ironic that both "items" i.e. a Kidney Transplant and Porsche Panamera cost N15million. Im not saying OJB is Wizkid's responsibility so he should foot the entire bill, I'm just saying. I'm not saying Wizkid has not supported him or not, I'm just saying. For benefit of doubt, maybe he had already placed the order before OJB plea went public, it’s possible. I'm not defending his action just pondering possibilities.

I'm saying the kind of life they make us believe they live is flamboyant enough to raise N50million for OJB without him having to publicly beg for it. Could it be that OJB was mean to most of them so they are paying back? Even if it is so, what happened to forgiveness? #Imjustsaying

I like hearing news like this. There are still people with human kindness. I like to see more philanthropist rise to the occasion to lend a helping to humanity. 

Billionaire Sir Emeka Offor is donating $1.25 million to the Rotary Club's PolioPlus program to eradicate the paralyzing disease that attacks more people in his country, Nigeria, than any other in the world.

In a statement received Wednesday the oil and gas tycoon says "polio should have no place in our world."

Nigeria is the sticking point for efforts to rid the world of polio because of opposition from northern Muslim leaders who falsely preach that the vaccinations cause sterility and AIDS. The project also is opposed by Islamic extremists blamed for the killings of nine women health workers as they were vaccinating children against polio in northern Kano city in February.

Offor said the number of documented cases in Nigeria rose from 62 in 2011 to 122 last year.

Health they say is wealth, we all need to join hands in various ways we can to contribute to the development and growth of our nation Nigeria.

Nigerian men are like any other men physiologically but not entirely the same psychologically. The Nigerian or African culture and environment has its element of influence of the package Nigerian/African Man.

A few of these tips was written by OMG.com.ng. How to please a Nigerian / African man is not a usual question you hear from women but due to abuse and dissatisfaction in relationships, most Nigerian Women are frustrated with their Naija men.

You might just be a Nigerian Woman reading this article please stay strong and read further to learn more. If you are a Nigerian man that is not giving your wife the required attention, please adjust accordingly if you want to please her.

If you are not a Nigerian Man or Woman reading this, it’s still helpful. You can learn a thing or two.

7 Sure Tips To Satisfy A Typical Nigerian Lover
Please Follow These Tips To Satisfy Your Nigerian Man. The list is not exhaustive though.
For emphasis; Marriage didn’t come packaged with a written one-size-fits-all guideline, its left for two adults to work it out following what they learnt from about marriage from the bible, counseling books, their parents, society and their own personal beliefs & moral standing.

First of all Be Certain Your Nigerian Man Really Loves You. Men are not strong at hiding emotion especially when it comes to passionate feeling. If a Nigerian man doesn’t feel connected to his wife, they tend to look out for something that can satisfy their passion. It takes a God-fearing man to stick to his wife even when he doesn’t feel that connected anymore. Now that it is established that this loves and cares so much about you, first don’t let it go to your head. Now do the following

Dress Very Well For Your Man
How did you dress that caught your man’s attention in the first place? Men are creatures of sight! I can’t say this enough, most Nigerian women today dress in a shabby manner especially after having kids. Remember men are attracted to sexy things (women, outfit, shapes, hairstyles, etc).

Make sure you dress well for your man, I don’t care whether you are 20 or 35 or 60, ensure you dress well. The question now is how can I dress well with all these pounds I have added (May be that is why your man is not attracted to you anymore). Keep dressing the way that makes him not want to take his eyes off you.

Be Humble To Your Man
Honestly, most Nigerian women have lost their culture, remember our culture commands respect. I don’t care if you are making twice than him. If your man feels a sense of respect from you, he will respect you in return.

Know How To Cook And Clean
You don't want your Nigerian Man marrying you and the numerous eateries that dot the neighbourhood. They say the best way to a man's heart is through his stomach. Don't make the mistake that you can short-circuit that through your bossom. If you can't cook learn how to cook at least his favourite dishes he'll love and appreciate you more for the attempt. Also know how to clean. *In fact this tip should be number one*

Maintain A Good Weight
Please Naija women, if you have gained a lot of weight since you got married to your sweetheart, there is a real chance your man might be interested in slim women aka lepa. So, go on a quick diet and shed the weight, keep fit. Some men do like thick women, you don't have to be a slim woman or lepa. Just stay fit and trim.

Be Romantic
To be honest, most Nigerian men are not romantic, so if your man is not romantic, show him some romance. Don’t let him be the first to come and kiss you, kiss him 24/7 especially when you are indoors (but keep in mind to give him some space too, very important).

Remember He Is A Nigerian An Not A Citizen Of Your Romance Fairy-tale Novel Or Fantasy
Don’t have over ambitious expectation for him regarding romance based on what you read in romance novels. Those are fictions, learn to separate the two. Hold him in such high esteem and your relationship is doomed.

Don’t Import Romance From Another Culture And Try To Enforce It On Him
The result may likely be very unfavourable. Though you aspire to live a certain standard or romance life, start from the basic where he is very comfortable.

So when last did you kneel down to greet your husband?
If nothing seems to work after trying all your best, then what you need is counseling

One Million Minutes Of Family Bonding Moments
News coming out of Kuala Lumpur has it that more than 6,500 Malaysians were treated to an enjoyable family movie viewing experience recently in Oreo’s nationwide effort to promote family togetherness.

Oreo’s “One Million Minutes of Bonding Moments” campaign resulted in a total of over five million minutes of bonding moments dedicated by loyal Malaysian families.

In our hectic lifestyles, families are encouraged to spend quality time with their family and indulge in enriching their relationships between one another.

“We believe that family relationships are worth investing in as they will carry us through every season in life and we hope that this experience has truly strengthened the bonds within Malaysian families across the country,” said Ben Summons, Marketing Director of Kraft Foods Malaysia.

At the event, families young and old were seen enjoying their time together while spending time with each other over the family-friendly comedy movie – the latest Monsters University.

“This has been a wonderful and enjoyable experience with my family. As a working dad, sometimes I can get so caught up with work that I allow myself to miss opportunities to bond with my kids. I agree that everyone can make time for special moments to bond with their family every day,” said Mohamad Hanif, father of two children.

This effort is to encourage Malaysians to continue dedicating precious minutes of bonding moments with their families because at the of the day, every little moment counts and bonding moments go a long way in bringing families closer together.

As we might remember from a Disney movie ‘Lilo and Stitch’ where Lilo said 'Ohana means family, family means nobody gets left behind. Or forgotten.’

Please when you go to Chinese restaurant, don't just nice sounding meals on the menu they may taste so good to you, speaking from experience. Ask what you are ordering first. What I want to share with you today reminds of what happened a few years back. We went to a Chinese Restaurant called Saipan. It was a little get-together for the office. So the order for food was made mostly by the ogas but we individually chose our drinks/poisons. When the food was served, most of us can't wait to taste this exquisite exotic oriental dishes. We don't care if they were healthy Chinese food or not.


There was this thing that looked fried shrimps. I scooped more than enough of the shrimp-like looking dish to my plate. More people did what I did. I took one spoonful and I was screaming uncontrollably in my mind for the fire service to put out the fire raging in my mouth. This stuff crazy hot chili pepper. I tried to hide my predicament from public display lol. I don't know when I emptied my glass of red label. I sat back and watched everybody who scooped that fried chili and they all learnt their lesson the hard way just like I did.

Moral of the Story: Always be sure of the cockroaches and frogs you are order at a Chinese restaurant!

My boss shared his food with me today Thursday June 13 2013 afternoon. One look at the content in a deep white bowl convinced me it was moi-moi. I cut and tossed a sizeable portion in my mouth, bad mistake. I remembered the warning in our chemistry laboratory back in Government College Umuahia which says; “DON’T Sniff, Touch Or Taste Anything” I used to taste out the chemicals on people’s notebook especially when their eyes are elsewhere lol! My taste buds recoiled sharply to safety, I spat the portion out at a dizzying speed. What the hell was that? What kinda moi-moi is this?

I had to ask my boss, bros no vex o what kinda food be this? He said it’s wheat and added it’s healthy. That was when I noticed the other plate with soup. The wheat is the swallow (like garri) for the soup. I have never eaten wheat as swallow before. I’m not the adventurous type with food. I’m finicky with food. The soup was ogbono or draw soup. How worse can it get? I hardly eat ogbono soup. I’m going against these unfriendly food tag team. My grumbling stomach decreed I eat the wheat and ogbono soup plus I wanted to taste the wheat. I just shoved the bolus down my oesophagus. It didn’t look like eating, it was like punishment. I finished my meal with a huge soup left over while MD almost licked his plate clean. He loves ogbono/draw soup. 

One man's corned beef is another man's cyanide. That's my version of one man's meat is another man's poison.


Don't Be Adventurous In A Chinese Restaurant, Know What You Are Eating!

Sometimes The Universe Seem To Work Against You But Devil Is A Liar
You know sometimes it seems like the universe just work against you and you wonder why. If you are most true Christians you begin to remember the sin or sins you committed that may be standing in your way of success. The truth is sometimes in eyes of limited understanding we think the universe is hurting us but in indeed the universe is helping us. Always remember these quotes below.

Once You Make A Decision, The Universe Conspires To Make It Happen
Ralph Waldo Emerson

When You Want Something All The Universe Conspires In Helping You Achieve It 
Paulo Coelho

Question is; "What Decision Have You Taken or What Do You Want?" May we not find ourselves in such situation where the universe work against us. May the universe always work to our benefit and favour!

Dalu dashed into our office Thursday June 13 2013 afternoon, his internet ran out in the middle of an important email. He needed to just send an email. It was like God turned his back on him for a split second. His email won’t let him sign in. Okay he signed into his yahoo and it stopped responding. He fiddled with for some minutes and Firefox stopped responding all together. Na wa o! He switched to Google chrome. He also switched to my Gmail account. The Gmail compose page froze for a moment then continued working. In the middle of writing the all-important mail there was a brief power cut which caused our internet modem to reboot. He looked at me with a pitiable expression of frustration etched on his face then he gasped “What Did I Do?”

I’m no evil genius but it amused me. I’ve been there, done that. I understand perfectly in every fiber of my being what tremendous torment he is going through and how he is feeling. The email must be really be jinxed. This is the kind of situation that makes people say things like; “Devil Is A Liar” “That Juju No Go Work” “If They Send You Tell Them Say You No See Me”, etc. The Swift modem rebooted momentarily. He continued composing his email. The last straw that broke the camel’s back was when he tried to attach a 63kb file, just 63kb. It kept loading and loading and loading. The file took enough time to deliver the mail by DHL still it kept loading! The voodoo priest frustrating his effort is really powerful lol!

I was troubleshooting the problem all the way but more troubles kept shooting him. I then asked him to use the windows 8 laptop instead. That was his salvation. He succeeded in sending the email and left our office.

Blame It On The Rain If I Skip Work Today!
Thursday June 13 2013
Its so good to be back to the land of the living this morning. As I was taking my cold bath this morning, Lekki was being bathed as well. Blame it on the rain if I skip work today lol. I had secretly prayed for the rain cuz I was so not in the mood for going to work this morning. My mind is burdened by rent issue. When the rain fell, it was a sweet orgasmic relief. Somehow I felt the burden being washed away like sins being washed away by the blood of Jesus. I imagined how swiftly this prayer was answered. Was it a dumb luck? Did God look into my heart and just for my sole sake bathed Lekki this morning? Was it planned or predestined to rain this morning regardless of what I wanted? I can never know the answer to these questions.

Blame It On The Rain If I Skip Work Today!
As the soap lather slithered down my body to the bathroom floor and disappeared out the waste water outlet on the floor I watched as limitless silvery raindrops hurl themselves on building roofs and wash off to the ground. Some rooftops are rusty, I imagine it may hurt the raindrops. I wondered if they enjoyed what they were doing. I wondered what the lifespan of a raindrop was. If I were a rain drop, where would I like to fall on? Probably in juicy cleavage of a beautiful lady. Get your mind out the gutter. I toweled myself dry and eased myself into a comfortable position on the bed, also eased the laptop comfortably on my lap. Lekki is still taking her bath, even if the rain stops it will only take the dry season to completely towel it dry like I just did. I work a little on the office task with some difficulties and then gravitated naturally to my write-up.

The rain took a break for the day after a while. I left for work. I got to office less than three minutes ahead of my boss around a few minutes before eleven o’clock. He passed me one of his new laptops that I configured some time ago, this time I’m copying documents and media from my office laptop to it. That got me busy for a while. I hate the navigation on Windows 8. Is it me being stuck in the past or do you guys love windows 8? Bill Gates must be really proud of his Windows 8 right now. I prefer Windows 7 anytime!

I went to the bank as usual to make some payments. Later in the evening an unexpected individual checked on us. The door slowly cringed open and we had eyes fixed on the door and the last person we anticipated strolled in. MD exclaimed! We all burst into a hysterical laughter. It was Ifeanyi, the dude who resigned a few days ago! He didn’t come to work though. But there was genuine excitement in the air just seeing him. We spent the rest of the evening gisting about life, work, family, relationship, you name it. MD left for a meeting at Whitbaker Hotel Ikoyi some minutes after 5:00pm. Ify took his leave also. I stayed behind till 6:45pm.

Already Caesar had whatsapped me that he is waiting for me at Lekki roundabout. I rushed over to him and transport fare was saved. we talked about my write-ups. He was really thrilled reading my blog article. He never knew I could write. We spent some time at his babe’s shop before I went home. In the morning when I was leaving my room I saw the carcass of butterfly or was it a moth on the door mat outside. Poor thing. This evening I saw another one indoors beside the water dispenser. Who, what and when was open season declared on butterflies? Who or what is doing the killing? I hit the sack.

Who, what and when was open season declared on butterflies? Who or what is doing the killing? I hit the sack.

I once put up a Facebook status update about not subscribing to the term thinking outside the box. I prefer the term "Thinking In A Larger Box" Really it's like a terminology difference if you asked me. We may be talking the same thing just worded differently. The wrong expression will definitely get you the wrong reaction. I don’t care the colourful decorations you may put on the term 'Thinking Outside The Box' to justify its usage. To me you can only think outside the box when you are lying six feet taking a dirt nap, that time you are really outside the box of reality and imagination!

Caveat: I'm not a professed philosopher nor lawyer, just airing my opinion.

Below is the Facebook status update and the comments that flowed.

They Say "Think Outside The Box" I Think It's Insane. You Can NEVER Think Outside The Box Rather, You Think In A Much Larger Box. Your Realm Of Thought Will Always Be Your Box.

Mavis Ishanqueen O: Why are you destroying our illusions? The box I think could be social norms.

Ibe W:‎ @Me, pls educate me!!! which part of the body is your own box located??????? January

Me: Yes the box could be social norms, a certain type of social norm. So when you think, you think bigger than the social norm you already have and not outside of it.

Me: The box is not located in any part of my body. The box is my Thought Realm.

Mavis Ishanqueen O: Society could be a point of start, but we can divert totally from it (revolution). Or don't you think that is possible? Cuz that would be thinking outside the box. A bigger box as you said could simply mean a reform, I acknowledge these rules exist and somehow try to bend them without breaking them.

Me: In essence if my thought realm is 3000 meters square, I need to up it to 5000 meters square. Think bigger.

Me: Revolution can only change what you already have and add a new one but can NEVER completely bring a new one. Tell me a revolution that lead to a new brand new structure devoid of anything from the old system.

Mavis Ishanqueen O: I get your point. You win...this time :-D

Ibe Wogu: You are limited by the social norm you already have because you have confined yourself to it. Even the so called limited social norm you think you have, I bet you that you have not fully exploited it. That adage only implores you to expand your horizon as what you see or perceive is not the end of what is. So simply put "think outside the box" means look beyond your limitations!

Me: "That adage only implores you to EXPAND your HORIZON as what you see or perceive is not the end of what is." Did you just use those two words EXPAND and HORIZON in one sentence to refute what I said? Expand here simply means BIGGER and horizon means BOX. Meaning think in a bigger box not outside of the box.

Ibe W: The last time I checked Horizon involves perspective, possibility, prospect, sphere, scope etc. it has nothing to do with an enclosed and defined confines like a box. If the box is a limitation for you, I advise you forget about the box and think outside it. who said thoughts can only be done in boxes, even if u have to do that in a cage or a a container just think.

Me: Like I said earlier "The BOX" is your REALM OF THOUGHT. It's not the literal structure. Perspective, possibility, prospect, sphere, scope, etc are all realms of thoughts. If your thought is outside of these, what is inside then? You can't think outside of it rather you expand. It's like a progression, AP or GP depending on the power of your thought. You can only expand beyond your limitations not outside it. If you are outside it then it's not your limitation, probably another person's.

Ibe W: Ofcourse the social norms in which we operate in is not our own creation as such cannot be said to be my limitation. It is a limitation created by other such as our bad leaders. Contrary to your position, I can expand beyond my limitations especially if it was not originally created by me. And believe me if my realm of though is so myopic, then I may act on even your own thought. I bet you there are times the circumstances around you may not permit you to expand your horizon, then what do u do in such circumstances.

Me: The bad leaders created the situation that is a limitation to you but it's doesn't mean it's a limitation to the leaders. You stay 3 days at the filling station to get fuel and you think the minister of petroleum wastes the same amount of time trying to get fuel? Hell No! He created the limitation for you but it's not a limitation for him, his is there and different. I also acknowledge the fact that different people may face same limitation. Also facing the same situation may not necessarily mean limitation for two different people. There's fuel scarcity, I own a car and you won a bicycle; do you have a problem? You can always expand beyond your limitation irrespective of who created it. Yeah tell me what happens if you can't expand.

Ibe W: The only Realm of Thought foisted upon us (Nigerians) is filled with negativity, expanding it will entail expanding Kidnapping, armed robbery, corruption and recently terrorism. The best option is to jettison our so called social ideals and embrace a new one. No wonder the Bible said "Be yea transformed by the renewal of your mind"

Me: Now you are limiting yourself with negativity. Let me ask you, "Are you currently involved in all the vices you mentioned above?" So that you see negativity around you don't mean that you think and do it/them. You've expanded beyond your limitation but you are still in the system. TRANSFORMATION and RENEWAL mean one thing, improvement on what you already have and not an entirely new one. Still pointing to expanding your horizon.

Me: The only thinking outside the box that ever happened was in CREATION since then man has been thinking in a box bigger than what creation dealt him with.

Ibe W: Well you can think within your own box, as for me my thinking is both within and outside the box (no matter what that is) that is why am an inventor.

Me: I think in a larger/bigger box not outside. Inventor how many boxes do you think outside of in a year?

Ibe W: I have more than I million boxes. Which ones are u talking about. Or do u just have only one perspective to life?

Me: I have more than 1 million boxes merged in one huge box. Just like a cow, it can be million pieces of meat to you or one piece of meat to me.

Ibe W: A ca cow, beef is diifferent cos at the point u get a beef the cow is gone. Using animals as an example, I do not have the time to be beef to a cow, rather I can be goat, Cat, chicken, lion, tiger etc as the occasion requires.

Me: Call it beef, call it cow, it's meat. A million pieces to you, one piece to me.

Do You "Think Outside The Box" Or Do You "Think In A Larger Box"?

5 Major Health Benefits Of Aloe Vera Plant
Growing up we had abundant aloe vera plant in our compound. They were very rich, thick, juicy and succulent. My compound was the only place with aloe vera in the whole community lol. We knew of the health benefits of aloe vera but not like it is known today. We didn't use it much till media on health benefits of aloe vera hit my village, it became an endangered specie. All of a sudden everybody in my village is  trying to live a healthy lifestyle and is now an aloe vera expert. They discuss its multiple medicinal qualities.

Most of us are unaware that the healing powers of aloe extend much beyond cooling and repairing sunburnt skin. In ancient times, aloe vera and its extracts were used for medicinal purposes. Today, researchers are discovering more advantages of this versatile plant. Mentioned below are the top five health benefits of aloe vera, aloe vera juice, and aloe vera gel:

5 Major Health Benefits Of Aloe Vera Plant Include;
1.Certain properties of the aloe vera plant make it an excellent remedy for speeding up the healing process to any injury. Aloe vera is excellent for treating scars, burns, and cuts.

2. Aloe Vera is well known for its anti-inflammatory properties. In other words, it has the ability to arrest inflammation or slow it down due to the presence of fatty acids. Applying aloe vera gel can prevent or stop inflammation caused by injury, immune dysfunction, and many other problems.

3. Improves digestion and helps detoxify the body. Aloe vera juice and gel are both good laxatives and help in dealing with constipation.

4. As Aloe Vera is a cellular regenerator and has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal effects, these properties make aloe vera one of nature's healthiest products. Being a strong antioxidant, it hunts down free radicals and protects the body and that is a huge health benefit.

5. The dried juice/gel of the aloe vera plant is traditionally used as a remedy for diabetes as the aloe vera juice lowers blood sugar.

Aloe Vera in almost all its forms possesses multiple medicinal qualities that can improve the immune system and help your body to recover more quickly, thereby increasing the quality of your life. Taking aloe vera in excess quantities can lead to harmful effects, so it is good to consume aloe vera in small amounts until you know how your body reacts to it.

Then I only used it for a clear smooth skin. How do you use aloe vera? Or are you missing out on the health benefits of aloe vera? For those who live a healthy lifestyle you might wanna try the green spiky healing plant called aloe vera.

The year is steady running out, what have I achieved so far? I'm in a thinking-of-my-rent state of mind. My landlord hasn't said anything yet. That's his style, he usually keeps quiet by this time. I noticed it last year, first time I didn't pay on time. Only a miracle can save me now. That's what I'm hoping on God and also exploring material avenues too. I meditated on the Open Heavens and prayed. I haven't seen Amara for some time now. I haven't seen Ibe at all. The last time she came, she picked quite a few clothing items including their towel. I’m guessing they must’ve gotten a kitchen where they are. I pray they get a complete wardrobe too to take all their things. I wish them the best wherever they are.

I took my bath and left for work. My boss came to the office late morning, he took his sweet time. I guess he wanted to work from home. I called Ify's line but it was unreachable. I'll place another call later. The office is now just the two of us. I wonder how we are gonna survive. Yahya got a new gig with the Lagos office of one of OBJ's establishments. I wonder how green the grasses are over there. Im cocksure it's definitely greener than here at its current state. Just as we were acclimatizing to the shock, Ifeanyi resigned. I didn't see that one coming. This place is going to be very boring I tell you. I will do 0-60 in -60 seconds If I get an opportunity like Yahya's. Work was kinda slow today.

MD spent ample time on phone talking shop. I spent ample time idling away cuz we had power failure issue again at the office. I paid some bills both office and personal. The office was a bit awkward today with just me and MD. Since his supposed team mates whom he worked on the PPM with have deserted him, he passed a bit of the buck to me. He gave me a task to merge two documents (an MS Word PPM and an MS PowerPoint presentation) to look like one and at the same time not really be one.

I’m hungry. My boss shared his food with me earlier but did you see small area the ration occupied on the plate? I couldn’t go to Shoprite. My mouth didn’t taste anything else till the evening arrived. I took a one way ticket to Onye Mama’s place on my way home. They may not have the best healthy food but the have the best affordable quality food in this area. I took care of belly matters, task completed.

One Of Those Slow Day At Work

Fumigation Didn't Get Rid Of The Nigerian Mosquitoes, What Next?
Tuesday June 11 2013
Today my boss comes back citeris paribus. What do I have planned out for today? Not much really, being a travel guide for MD is definitely not one of them. I’m gonna work from home until I get a call from my boss that he is coming back then and only then will I go to the office. That is provided there is power at home. I haven’t called Ifeanyi yet since he resigned, I need to speak with him. I did some small chores first as a result I read my open heaven late today. I prayed, downed a bowl of cereal.

Fumigation Didn't Get Rid Of The Nigerian Mosquitoes, What Next?
The fumigation didn't get rid of the mosquitoes. I have already started having the unwanted and unhealthy company of mosquitoes in my room that was fumigated recently. This is the fifth day after the room was fumigated! I've not even started reaping the health benefits of the fumigation.

I specifically asked the oga of the fumigation crew how long the fumigation will keep mosquitoes at bay and he said 3 MONTHS! I want to enjoy the benefits of the fumigation for at least one month! I know I had an ample exposure to the health hazard of the fume. These people just mix milky solution with toxic fumes strong enough to take down an elephant but weak enough to keep mosquitoes out for at least 5 days. It’s so annoying.

Is it that the Nigerian mosquitoes are insects of steel that can't be killed even with kryptonite or is it like I said the fumigation solution is just a ruse?

Next I calculatedly inserted myself intensely into the internet, the internet culture has it good and evil. There are so many things I want and need to research especially about blog SEO, if only the ripe and conducive condition is always at my disposal. I will explore or research till I drop! I stayed glued to the white screen till 12:33 pm when my boss called. Earlier Godwin his driver called to inquire if he will go to the airport today to pick MD. His move is dependent on MD’s call. The call is finally here. He instructed me to come with the driver so I can monitor his driving like his driver instructor.

I dressed up quickly and left the house. I passed the info to Godwin. He is to meet me at MD’s house. There was no fuel in the car so I drove to the filling station for fuel. I did that out of adventurous temptation to drive the car since I’m with the car keys and to eliminate waste of time when Godwin shows up. I bought more than half tank of fuel. I got breakfast from Spar, not one of those super healthy foods. Now I wait for Godwin.

He called complaining of heavy downpour in his area. Meanwhile the sun was happily and diligently doing its job in the Lekki area. I ate my delicious breakfast in the car once I got to MD’s house. Gradually the weather changed and the journeying rain reached the corridors and doors of Lekki. It rained for a while. Trust Lekki, flood is up already in some areas. Godwin is still nowhere to be found. My boss landed in Lagos but had to take a cab when I told him the situation.

He got home after about an hour or so. We talked about this and that. Then I asked him to reimburse me for the fuel I bought. He was like how? Who drove since Godwin didn’t show up? He has never believed I can drive. I don’t want him to believe either, it’s perfectly fine by me. I don’t want to turn to his substitute driver. He was so surprised. If only Godwin showed up this awkward moment would’ve been avoided smoothly.

My mind was preoccupied with some thoughts as I left MD’s house. I walked down the road towards the bus stop. A girl probably in her late twenties was coming in the opposite direction. The unladylike way she was walking caught my attention. She was just bouncing like some irregular guys would. Noticing I was looking at her, she locked her eyes to mine. In that moment we were about to walk past each other she said; “In the name of God come.” I was like “huh?” I didn’t quite hear the last word I think it was “come.” Are you kidding me?! I kept going wearing a stern unfriendly look without looking at her again. She starts following me behind and goes on;

“Answer me na. Answer me na! Na so una go dey suffer for Lagos. Stupid people!”

With that she turned back and continued heading the opposite direction. What in the world just happened? As I continued to walk towards the bus stop I wondered what onlookers or passersby who witnessed this think transpired now. This was the last thing I expected today. I’ve heard stories where a few men got into trouble for innocently and unknowingly helping out heartless prostitutes who turn around to claim the men slept with them and refused to pay. For the average eyewitness on the street, it’s pretty difficult to tell the truth. Thank God for the way it turned out. I took a bus home.

The unladylike way she was walking caught my attention. She was just bouncing like some irregular guys would. Noticing I was looking at her, she locked her eyes to mine. In that moment we were about to walk past each other she said; “In the name of God come.” I was like “huh?” I didn’t quite hear the last word I think it was “come.” Are you kidding me?! I kept going wearing a stern unfriendly look without looking at her again. She starts following me behind and goes on;

“Answer me na. Answer me na! Na so una go dey suffer for Lagos. Stupid people!”

With that she turned back and continued heading the opposite direction. What in the world just happened? As I continued to walk towards the bus stop I wondered what onlookers or passersby who witnessed this think transpired now. This was the last thing I expected today. I’ve heard stories where a few men got into trouble for innocently and unknowingly helping out heartless prostitutes who turn around to claim the men slept with them and refused to pay. For the average eyewitness on the street, it’s pretty difficult to tell the truth. Thank God for the way it turned out. I took a bus home.

In a recent study from the Rice University, Houston, it has been revealed that the health benefits of the vegetables reach highest levels at the noon. So to maintain a healthy lifestyle, it is healthiest to eat vegetables during the afternoon.

The study asserted that the vegetables and fruits are still sensitive to day light after being harvested. Also, it asserted that the levels of antioxidants that fight cancer are at peaks levels at noon while they drop to half the maximum level in evening. 

I have often eaten fruits especially apples in the day time. I can't say the same for vegetables.

Published in Current Biology, the study suggested that the fruits and vegetables too had internal clocks like human beings. Some of the compounds in plants are stimulated by the light-dark cycle after they are harvested.

Experts say that the levels of protective compounds in vegetable begin to drop after they are harvested. Janet Braam, a Researcher from Rice University, and her colleagues took cabbages and put them under light-dark cycle of 12 hours.

"And sure enough we found that when we put the plants under light-dark cycles, we found periods of accumulation of those beneficial chemicals", argued Braam. The findings suggested that the peak levels of the compounds were achieved in the afternoon.

Similar results were observed by the research team in lettuce, spinach, sweet potatoes and blueberries. The research explains significance of storing vegetables and fruits under light-dark cycles.

Now you know, give yourself a healthy facelift as you put this in practice for a healthy living.

Relationship Guidance: Basis Of Every Romance Relationship

This is incredible. I've never thought of a thing like this relationship guidance tip. Based on the relationship guidance chart by GraphJam, every romantic relationships share two major traits; what they hate in common and what they like in common. Graphically via GraphJam, they hate more things in common than what the couple both like. I reserve my comment on this relationship tip. Do you Agree or Disagree?

Couple Celebrate Platinum Anniversary 87 Years Posing As Groom And Bride At Age 4
Ron and Eileen Everest at age 4 (left), on their wedding day in 1943 (center) and in 2013 (right)
This is so amazing. If love like this and a soul-mate match like this was plenty in this world, divorce rate won't be astronomically high! And the good Lord kept them thus far. I'm in AWE! It brings tears to my eye.

There's a lesson to learn here from this wonderful couple. Relationship is perpetual commitment not commitment of convenience.

According to Dailymail

Ron and Eileen Everest never knew a world without each other. They were born in the same hospital. Ron and Eileen were born in 1921 and 1922 respectively and have been friends practically from birth.
As 4-year-olds, they posed as bride and groom in a pretend wedding at a carnival. Later, barely out of their teens, they married for real.

And this year, 87 years after that old photo was taken, the one they fondly refer to as their first wedding rehearsal, the British couple are celebrating their platinum anniversary after 70 years of marriage.

"We have been in love from the age of zero," Ron tells the Telegraph. "We were born in the same maternity hospital – we might have even been born in the same bed."

It wasn't fate, necessarily. In fact, Eileen took some convincing before she eventually agreed to marry Ron in 1943.

"I did not think much of Ron at all," she tells the Daily Mail. "But I did think he looked handsome in his Navy uniform. To be honest, I liked the look of the uniform more than him."

But 70 years after their wedding day, they can look back and see just how special their bond has been.

"We have had our ups and downs, but we have always got on," Eileen says.
Adds Ron: "We promised to love, honor and obey – and I did all the obeying."
Anyway, there's no backing out now. As Eileen says: "I think we will stay together forever."

The lines above is the lyrics from one of Bob Marley's numerous songs titled Sun Is Shining
"Sun is shining, the weather is sweet
Makes you wanna move your dancing feet"

The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), has warned that there will be severe weather and heavy rainfall in Lagos tomorrow Tuesday June 18th.

NEMA spokesperson, Ibrahim Farinloye, said the early warning is based on alerts received from the African Centre of Meteorological Applications for Development based in Niamey, Niger Republic.
He said:
“In Nigeria, Lagos and its environs are expected to experience torrential rainfall from about 50 mm 24h: Confidence medium means that all stakeholders must be prepared to take all precautionary steps against leaving the warning unattended......blah blah blah"
The NEMA warning at least shows some people work in that agency. It's good they warned before hand, Im glad it wasn't like Noah's warning of flood. I look out my window and the sun is shining. Yes it rained earlier, not heavy by any ramification. That goes to show you that man propose, God laughs and then dispose!

However I have one issue with the source of that warning. Seriously NEMA went to Niger Republic to get a reading on Nigerian weather?! What is NEMA Nigeria doing? Let me guess PHCN didn't give them power to do the work. Could it be the road to their office is bad so they went to Niger Republic. Just like we fly to foreign countries for good medical treatment? Is it the same reason why we import even common toothpicks? Let's hope they didn't come back with excess luggage of terrorist as evidence insurgence activities points in that direction.

I liken it to President Jonathan running to Niger Republic president to rule Nigeria with the resources of Niger Republic. That is ridiculous. I don't if the body is  African Centre of Meteorological Applications for Development, Nigeria claiming GIANT of AFRICA should have it's reliable effective and efficient Meterological Institute.

Trust me some countries of Africa or non African believe Nigeria is the GIANT of AFRICA but in a negative sense. Please fix our own meteorological institute and forecast correctly from it next time. Thats my opinion which I'm entitled to.

Nigeria; good people, great nation

Monday June 10 2013
Monday Morning, I landed my 5:00am alarm a technical knock and continued my sleep. That move might've been influenced by the fact that I won't go to work today. My eyes opened again around 5:35am then I remembered a new church program introduced during yesterday service. It's called 'Command The Morning.' It's a one hour morning prayers session from 6:00am to 7:00am. I decided to give it a trial since I’m not rushing to work this morning. Even if I was going to work I can still make it. I went and it was worth it. I didn't do my personal morning prayers again. As soon as I marched inside, PHCN restored power.

I instantly ceremoniously buried myself in my laptop. Yeah I'm working from home. I browsed the internet corner to corner looking for blog tips. First I searched for a nice seo enabled 3-column cute blogger template/theme for my blog. I didn't see any. The place was cluttered with 2 column seo templates. I just love 3-column. I even googled the merit and demerit of each type of template. Not much difference. I just love the look of 3-column and it's good for ads. I found some other tips about seo. Mehn there's so much to learn about blogging. My blogging approach is still that of an expert novice. I'm torn between full commitment and other handicaps like internet subscription, power supply, time, etc. I'm also in the dilemma of defining my niche and suitable keywords.

I explored the web in depth with an incredible rapt attention that defies ordinary understanding till around 3:28pm. Holy Smokes! The banks will soon close. That was when I remembered I needed to withdraw the double wire transfer Victory sent me via Skye Bank. I have two money transfer cash I'm yet to collect. On the triple I hurried out of the house. Luckily a Skye Bank is close by. Still I have to go through two different modes of transportation to get there. The bike weren't forthcoming. I was so restless. The lord finally sent me a bike, we sailed through the flooded road to the main express. The buses took their time which I don't have before pulling up at the bus stop. I kept checking the time every few seconds.

Yaaay! I made it to the bank by 3:43pm. This is my second time of coming to this particular branch of Skye Bank for bank transaction. I picked up two money transfer forms for my purpose. Skye Bank calls it Flitcash A snag appeared as I filled out the forms. I don’t remember Victory’s address! My phone won’t browse for me to get the info from my email. The bank won’t overlook that detail since I don’t have an account with them. In my flustered state it never occurred to me to call Victory for his address. Luckily one of the bank staff suggested it. I called it went straight to voicemail, great! I left him a short voice message. I asked if the wire transfer expires after a certain time but they didn’t provide any useful answer. I must withdraw this cash today no matter what!

My God wasn’t on vacation, He never is. Victory called me back and gave me the address, guess what. It was different from the address I wanted to get from my email! I collected the wire transfer in the end. I stopped at Ojomu for beverages. I went home, I went on to inform Victory that I’ve collected the money, I went nowhere else for the day. 

Worked From Home, Cashed Wire Transfer From The Bank

Beloveth, Being A Church Worker Is Worthy Cause
Sunday June 09 2013
I think I remember shutting up my two phones as the 5:00am alarms went off like most of you do. Those irritating noise, they shouldn't just test me now for their own good. The next time I looked at the clock it was 6:20am! What?! I'm supposed to be in church by 6:55am for church workers meeting! How could I have overslept on a day like this? We all know the answer to that irrelevant rhetoric. I hurried like I've never hurried before. My nickname today should be Flash. I made it to church before 7:00am. What a relief. We had a church workers meeting before the service proper. Today was a thanksgiving service. It was wonderful

Finally The Redeem Christian Church Of God Light Of The World Parish has posted us the new church workers to different departments. I was posted to the Ushering and Sanitation Department as my Primary and Secondary departments respectively. We are yet to be officially presented to the congregation as church workers. I had wanted to be in the technical but it’s all good. I have no problem with the departments I found myself except I'm not much of a suit and tie person. As a matter of fact I have only one suit and a couple of ties. Lara was like I'm tall, handsome and suitably qualified for the ushering department. She was posted to the Technical and Evangelism Departments. I went home.

I slept first. I slept off in the middle of writing this entry. It would've been creepily nice if I continued in my dreams. A knock on the door ended my sleep. It was Deborah, another church worker. She came for the package she put in my fridge last night. I grabbed my laptop to surf the web and check my mails. I wanted to prepare sometime but once I get glued to the web and its informative as it's usually is, every other emotions is overrode. I was still online when Caesar came over.

This is the second time he has come to my place after my roomies started sleeping somewhere else. He never showed up when they were around. He was quick to point out the greasy look my room aesthetic wore as opposed to the shiny, fresh and clean look it was before the arrival of my roomies. We spent some time at my place then hit the spar to pick a few things. I picked an Adidas deodorant. He picked some drinks. I drove on our way back but we switched again when we got to the flooded road. I don't know where the potholes are so I don't want us to get stuck. The gist flowed nonstop till we got to his place.

Blessing prepared a hot meal for us. It was semo and ogbono soup. Blessing is a church worker in her church. I'm not friendly with ogbono soup. I haven't eaten it outside my house before. Well my stomach took the decision against all my protest. Should I say my protest fell on deaf stomach or empty stomach? The ogbono soup had a little bitter leaf in it hence the bitter taste. I finished and thanked them. Caesar gave a wheat wafer, sorta like baked cornflakes. I went home to warm my bed.

The Best Place For Affordable Grocery Shopping And Avoid Terrible Traffic
The Best Place For Affordable Grocery Shopping And Avoid Terrible Traffic
Saturday June 08 2013
My boss is heading to Abuja today. Normally that ain't my business until I was tasked to accompany the driver back and keep the car keys. He asked last night to come around 10:00am today for the task. I lazed about in the house before leaving. I got there on time and wasted some precious 45 minutes or so before he came out. We dropped him off at the airport. There was dead silence in the car most of the way to Murtala Mohammed Airport Terminal 2. I preferred it that way. Sometimes you just wanna enjoy the sounds of silence. It's a soul soothing music. I'm thinking of the affordable grocery shopping I will do later.

I was feeling sleepy for some reason. My boss was feeling sleepy too. I wonder if the driver felt sleepy too cuz that will be dangerous. We went to Ebeano Supermarket to buy some items as directed by my boss. This supermarket is the best place for affordable grocery shopping within Lekki Phase 1. Some people don't do grocery shopping at Shoprite because of the toll and traffic. Suddenly without warning whatsoever rain started pounding our corner of earth. Rain always causes unusual traffic. The traffic was even evident in the supermarket car park as cars shuffled in and out of parking lots.

One woman was just causing unnecessary traffic due to her usefully useless stubbornness plus she can't drive well. On the flip side she was avoiding scratching her brand new purple Toyota Prado. She was blocking us and other cars, somehow Godwin got a way around it and we left. We dropped the items bought plus the car at the house, the rain was still drizzling. Godwin comes to work on his motor bike. He gave me a ride home.

I branched at Ojomu market for grocery shopping. Spontaneous shopping took over and I spent more than planned. Lara waltzed into same provision store where I was. We exchanged warm pleasantries. She just picked one item and left. I still haven't bought the major item that brought me to the market. I have to check on a different line for that. I got it eventually. I bought some items that I didn't budget. I took a bike home. The ride home is like jet skiing cuz of the flood. Caesar was just leaving my apartment when I got. I dropped my grocery shopping bags and went back to Lekki with him.

We went to see a friend of his who happened to be sister to Anita who is Paul Okoye of PSquare's girlfriend. We hung out. We grabbed a deeply satisfying lunch from Bukka Hut in Lekki, their price is affordable. They ate rice and I committed suicide like Bright Chimezie's song which means I ate garri lol! I ate the garri with edikangikong soup, it was very lovely. If I eat three square meals here every day, you won't recognize me! We went back to the house of Anita. She just rented the place so they are still moving stuffs furniture and fittings gradually. We spent some time chitchatting till evening before I left them. I was still feeling sleepy. I had to sleep before my system crashes. I sleep to my heart and soul content.

She was blocking us and other cars, somehow Godwin got a way around it and we left. We dropped the items bought plus the car at the house, the rain was still drizzling. Godwin comes to work on his motor bike. He gave me a ride home.

I branched at Ojomu market for grocery shopping. Spontaneous shopping took over and I spent more than planned. Lara waltzed into same provision store where I was. We exchanged warm pleasantries. She just picked one item and left. I still haven't bought the major item that brought me to the market. I have to check on a different line for that. I got it eventually. I bought some items that I didn't budget. I took a bike home. The ride home is like jet skiing cuz of the flood. Caesar was just leaving my apartment when I got. I dropped my grocery shopping bags and went back to Lekki with him.

We went to see a friend of his who happened to be sister to Anita who is Paul Okoye of PSquare's girlfriend. We hung out. We grabbed a deeply satisfying lunch from Bukka Hut in Lekki, their price is affordable. They ate rice and I committed suicide like Bright Chimezie's song which means I ate garri lol! I ate the garri with edikangikong soup, it was very lovely. If I eat three square meals here every day, you won't recognize me! We went back to the house of Anita. She just rented the place so they are still moving stuffs furniture and fittings gradually. We spent some time chitchatting till evening before I left them. I was still feeling sleepy. I had to sleep before my system crashes. I sleep to my heart and soul content.

Working From Home, Family Are On Vacation
Friday June 07 2013
Here is a little weather class about Nigeria. We have two major seasons in Nigeria which is the Rainy/Wet and Dry/Harmattan season. Simply put, rainy season brings the rain and the dry season brings no rain hence dryness/dust and harmattan. We are in the rainy season now. The intensity of the rain and harmattan varies from region to region. Lagos is a notorious flood prone state. Its rain can be a real pain in the axx. The rain comes down and the flood goes up. It rained heavily last night. Honestly I didn't know how much it rained till I went outside......and the waters covered the sea. So if you want to enjoy Lekki, be wary of the season.

The rain was indeed heavy! I must go to work regardless, whether by boat or submarine since I don't have a car yet. I wore rain boots and waded jungle style through the flood, past the flood to Doc's shop where I changed back to my normal shoes and hit the road. Ifeanyi was driving out as I was coming in. He was playing his music at usual loud volume though his windows are tight shut. Personally, I don't like putting my eardrums through tremendous stress of very loud volume. It is torture. Besides its a health hazard as it can cause hearing loss. We went to MD's house, that will be work office today.

Work From Home, Family on Vacation
My boss' family travelled so his once rowdy house was very conducive for intellectual work. Family is a lovely thing but can be a distraction when you want to work from home. i think I need me a vacation with the family too. We ate breakfast and lunch at the house, call it benefits of working from the house. We had a real long discussion regarding mostly Ifeanyi's rent and mine.

My boss made some comments which I found a bit improper. Ifeanyi didn't take them lightly too. Cuz by the time he got home, he sent a resignation letter via email. I'm gonna miss him, he's a nice guy. I did a few bank runs and back. I worked on the presentation again with my boss and got a better copy. I'm 100% sure by tomorrow it won't look very good to him. I went home. I went straight home not branching anywhere besides where I bought suya. I ate my suya and viju milk and dozed off.

Kim Kardashian Delivers A Baby Girl 5 Weeks Earlier, PregnancyPregnancy, Parenting, Motherhood
Online media sites have reported that Kim Kadarshian has given birth to a baby girl. Howcome the baby arrived 5 weeks ahead of schedule?

According to TMZ Kim Kardashian has given birth to a baby girl ... TMZ has learned. Sources close to KK tell TMZ the baby and Kim are both in good health. We're told Kim delivered the baby at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center this morning (Saturday June 15th)... 5 weeks sooner than originally planned.

Our sources say BF Kanye West was there for the entire thing. We're told Kanye cancelled his appearance at his own record release party last night when Kim told him she was feeling "a little off." It is the first child for Kim and Kanye.

Does it mean the baby is premature or they lied to us about the pregnancy due date?

Kanye West Latest Album Release Titled Yeezus Is Brilliantly Bizarre And "Illuminati"
West has described Yeezus’ musical style as “trap and drill and house,” but it sounds more like a mixture of ‘90s industrial rock—think Nine Inch Nails—and ambient-electronica, e.g. Aphex Twin. The French electronic duo Daft Punk produced four tracks on the album and if their latest LP, Random Access Memories—a breezy ode to the funky ‘70s—goes down like a smooth daiquiri, Yeezus is like jungle juice.

Opening track “On Sight” kicks things off with a bang. Over thrashing sonic beats—that sound eerily similar to LFO’s “Freak,” which played during the opening credits of Gaspar Noe’s film Enter the Void (West had previously copied that film’s title sequence in his music video for “All of the Lights”), West raps, “Real nigga back in the house again / Black Tim’s all on your couch again / Black dick all in your spouse again.” A hazy choral interlude follows, followed by more nasty beats and acerbic lyrics. “On Sight” is the only potential club banger on an otherwise avant garde album.


Unlike his previous solo effort, 2011’s My Beautiful Dark Twisty Fantasy, this LP is devoid of radio-friendly anthems like “All of the Lights”; there are no coquettish hooks sung by Rihanna or any other chanteuses. They’ve been supplanted by, say, samples of Nina Simone crooning about lynching, as on the mesmerizing six-minute track “Blood on the Leaves,” which transforms the politically charged ballad “Strange Fruit” from an anti-lynching tune into a vitriolic ode to a star-fucking mistress.

“Black Skinhead” contains a galloping beat layered with heavy breathing, tribal drums, CAW! sounds, and lyrics tackling racism in Middle America. It’s last twenty seconds feature West grunting “God!” The influence of Rubin is most evident on

Yeezus sounds like nothing you’ve ever heard before. West started out as a producer, crafting songs like Jay-Z’s “Izzo (H.O.V.A.)” and Talib Kweli’s “Get By” before, by his own admission, becoming an overnight celebrity with Twista’s “Slow Jamz,” which he raps very slowly—and hesitantly—on. The production on Yeezusblows Random Access Memories out of the water. By assembling several mega-producers, including Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter, Skrillex, RZA, Rick Rubin—who did some last-minute tinkering, West’s mentor No I.D., and, of course, himself, each track is imbued with it’s own thrillingly unique sonic identity, yet all ten tracks still flow together to form a cohesive whole. In an era of singles, this is an album, and must be listened to all the way through.

Wednesday June 05 2013
The sleep got sweeter in the wee hours of the morning. Why does it always happen like that? It was a bit of a struggle to get up. How I wish today was a Saturday. I woke up late, my master sleep slaved me so much. I didn't do Open Heavens. I sent my boss a text when I got to the office that I want to get to the school. He asked me to wait behind so I can take a package to Ben. As soon as he arrived I took the package and set out on a journey. I sieved through the traffic to Oniru bus stop then walked over to Mega Plaza. Today a lot is riding on me. I'm gonna be like man of steel and save the day.


I went to the Watch Doctor's shop at Mega Plaza to fix my Kenneth Cole watch. I thought it was a battery problem which will cost me N1000. But when it was opened, they told me something disturbingly different. According to them, rust has affected the engine. I blame the rain for the rust. It will now cost N8000 to fix which comes with seven month guarantee. Nope I can’t pay that. I can get a good brand new watch for that amount. I made my way to the next office on my list. I was a few blocks away from the post office Victory when called. I had wanted to call him earlier. He said the package has arrived, that makes things easy cuz I'm on my way to the post office. I got to the post office, the package just arrived. They haven't even logged it in yet. I grabbed the package and left. Mission accomplished one less thing to worry about.

Next stop is Caxton-Martins office on the 9th floor of St. Nicholas Hospital Building at Marina. I picked up a green tie and two black stockings from one of the boutiques on my way to Caxton-Martins. Mr. Ben was in a meeting so I dropped the package with Jumoke the receptionist for as long as I can remember. The first day I went to Caxton-Martins some years ago, I was singing Quando Quando Quando by Michael Bublé feat. Nelly Furtado. I love the song. She was at reception then. She lighted up with such inexplicable excitement. She gleefully announced to me she has been singing the same song all day! To drive her point home conclusively, she called out a colleague on the intercom. The young handsome man came and she asked him

Jumoke: What song have been playing and singing today
The guy: Quando quando quando

The guy blurted out the much anticipated answer. The atmosphere was electrifying. We felt connected. Ever since then we've been friends. I became her man of steel and she my Lois Lane. She gives me special attention whenever I come around. Sometimes I purposely make unusual demands to see what she'll do and she never disappoints. I wasn't so chatty today and I didn't realize it but she noticed it. She inquired what the matter was and I answered that I'm tired and thirsty. She did her magic and a glass of water chilled to my taste was in front of me. It was highly refreshing, I thanked her. She's a darling. I left Caxton-Martins for the Nigeria Police Station Alagbon Ikoyi. I had to go through Obalende.

At Obalende I saw some policemen on duty on the road. My instinct or my spirit ministered to me to ask a particular policeman for direction. I don't know where this Alagbon police station is. Man of steel do need help sometime especially kryptonite is involved. This is the first time in my entire life of going to the police station on my own and the second time I've ever been to a police station. The first time I escorted a friend to see a high ranking officer regarding a vandalization case at his place of work. Funny enough it’s the same Ikoyi but different police station. As God will have it the policeman I met Inspector Nwambu Remigius happened to come from Imo, Mbaise to be precise. I told him I wanted to do a police report. He gave me direction and also gave me a name of whom I should meet. He warned me that other policemen will be all over me hustling to attend to me once I get there that's why he gave the name.

Immediately I pictured touts that infest the Immigration office, hustlers at the markets like Yaba, money changers at Eko or Federal Palace Hotels. They all have one nasty thing in common, they hustle for customers even to point of fight sometimes. Then I tried to picture the policemen behaving in the same manner at the station, it was a disgrace. In my mind I was like Inspt you are employing hyperbole right? As I was leaving he added;
I stay here so when you are leaving if there's anything, you can see me here.

I almost forgot you are a Nigerian policeman. Nevertheless I'm very grateful for his assistance.I got to the Alagbon Police Station and warning played out more than I anticipated. It was a dynamic disgrace! They rushed like I was warned. I was so ashamed of my country's police force. There is the main Force Criminal Investigation Department (FCID) and the annex building. The officers in these two building from what I saw literally hustle for ''customers'' Each building had one or two men stationed outside the entrance like a lookout. They were all calling me to come and ''shop'' at their different ''shops'' just the way hustlers at Yaba market does it. They almost tore my limbs apart as they dragged me. If I were an actual man of steel, I would've thought them a tiny lesson about dragging someone who don't know.

IT WAS SO SHAMEFUL! I WAS SO ASHAMED OF THE POLICE FORCE!!!

Are they paid on commission of sales, I mean cases they record daily? Is the bribe here that lucrative? Unfortunately I didn't get their names. For sake of clarity let me label them Dragger Main and Dragger Annex for the main and annex building respectively. I have a piece of reference from Inspector Nwambu so all this gragra won't get them anything. I went to the annex. I spoke to the man behind the counter. I've forgotten his name. His approach appeared like a real police work. But don’t be fooled it’s all a marketing strategy act. I handed him the note from Inspector Nwambu and you can visibly tell he was highly disappointed. As he was coming to terms with the loss of a potential customer, another officer clad in mufti entered, I'm guessing his rank is above that of the man attending to me. He came in accompanied by Dragger Main.

He came to inquire why ''customer'' i.e. me going to their ''shop'' was cornered! Can you believe that?!! Then Dragger Main made a remark that Dragger Annex should be warned not to behave like that again. This shameless show of shame all played out before my eyes! It all happened too quickly. I stood there, mind, body and soul paralyzed with disappointment. It turned out Inspector Jeremiah's office is the main building. I was directed to his office. I explained myself that I need a police report. He said it will cost me N10000. I knew he just set the scene for price haggling. I asked Inspector Nwambu to give me an idea of the fee but he declined cunningly telling me he has no idea I believe he was lying. He may be telling the truth too.

I said I have N5000 he accepted. The way he accepted convinced me beyond doubt that the fee has to be a lot less than N5000. Long story short, I got the police report and left. I didn't go back to Inspector Nwambu like the three wise men didn't go back to King Herod. The ticket I booked for Ugo's mum had a little issue and she missed her flight. Aero couldn't synchronize seamlessly with their numerous bank payment outlets. Ugo sent me a text asking where I made payment. I replied with the wrong bank. Enterprise and Keystone bank always confuse me. It was a lot easier when they were Spring Bank and Bank PHB! He called me, yelled a bit that I should sort the problem. He then sent me an Aero staff number. I called and sorted it out.

Victory called. I told him my progress and he was audibly thrilled. I saved the day on that on getting the police report. He suggested I mail the police report to him immediately which makes sense. On my way back to Lekki I checked DHL and Fedex. The charge was N11,000 and N7,680 for DHL and Fedex respectively. Victory preferred DHL cuz it'll be faster. I sent the package on its way to overseas. I branched at Shoprite to grab dinner. I went home straight as the crow flies. Amara was at home chatting away with Fifi. I greeted them. She cooked okra soup, this time around she didn't leave any for me. That's better cuz the last time she did I only ate the meat. I don't really her brand of okra soup. They left shortly. I ate my dinner and went to bed.
