UAE, What Is The Meaning Of This?

So one of my friends sent me this mail and while I struggled to figure out if she was gloating or not, I skipped that and moved to the bigger issue. 

Please are they for real or are they just taking the piss? Can anyone shed more light? Help anyone?

And btw Dear Friend, the way you referred to it as "my" Dubai trip, do you know something I don't? Do you, perhaps, intend to surprise me with return tickets and cash for hotel accomodation? Please let me know o!


  1. Hahahaha,until then. As they say,life is the element of surprise (abi is it the other way round?)

  2.'s got to be a joke ,they're prolly messing around. And as per ur friend, anything can happen oo. That ur dubai trip must happen fire by force whether UAE embassy likes it or not.

    1. I said so too myself too when I saw it,so if couples wan go Dubai for honeymoon dem go wait till dem turn forty?hiannnn na wa ohh,USA too said American citizens shud not come to Nigeria without their country's approval cos Niger ain't safe,what are they stylishly turning us into?. Am sure the UAE is playing ten ten with this rule. Till den shaa.

  3. Na wa o,so pesin no fit drink water drop cup ontop travel matta? Ok,nsobu adiro...

  4. All I thought when I saw this was they dont want people coming to their country..I was sad when I saw it thou..such fuckery

  5. Naija's issues no dey end. When yiu think you have solved one, another crops up.

    Chai, Dubai is about the easiest place one could go and chill o.

    Which kind gbege be this na!!!

  6. Still wana assume this ain't real!

  7. For real? Have they forgotten how much they make from us going to their country for various purposes? I doubt this is real but if it is, it is not even half as painful as the fact that our government will not do anything concrete about it.

    There are some 'craze' in that country though. I remember booking one nice hotel online and on getting there, I was told the hotel does not accommodate single ladies. I was embarrassed to say the least and when I asked for a refund of my money, the reception said 'go and ask Expedia because you didn't pay to us'.


  8. This can't be real cause I may not recover fast from the pain. I've made my travel plans for 22nd of this month oooo UAE, don't do this to me biko - Flight, hotel, tour; all has been paid for - Please don't be true ana m ayo unu at least not until after my trip. You people can enforce this law when Thelma wants to go abeg *evil laugh*.

  9. I don't think this is new and it's never been enforced to the best of my knowledge. While waiting for my flight to board last year, a pretty, young lady, couldn't have been more than 22 approached me and asked if I could tell the officials we were together if/when asked for who she was travelling with. I was surprised because I had travelled 3 times to Dubai before that trip and had never been asked. She said a number of her friends advised her to tag along with someone because she will be asked. No one stopped either of us (I am below 40). It would be ridiculous if enforced.

  10. I confirmed from wakanow that there's indeed new age restriction for Nigerian nationals
    Male: 40 yrs and above gets to apply freely while below 40yrs needs a guardian.
    Female: 28 - about to clock 30 gets a pass/consideration, 30 and above freely applies, while below 28yrs needs a guardian.

  11. There has always been restrictions for Nigerians as far back as i could tell. Even when i lived there 2010 and prior- Emiratis have always been discriminatory based on nationality, but i thought it was women below 30 and unmarried they mostly discriminated against - from 3rd world countries. I know Nigerian travel agents used to simply put Mrs in front of your name when booking the ticket and you would be fine. Keep in mind a lot of muslims dont wear wedding rings per say.

    I worked in Dubai at age 23, and had a work permit and they would always greet me with a smile at immigration (one guy even told me i look like beyonce and i told him to "get outta here and wow thank you" title was a ridiculously high title like accountant general on my non-Nigerian passport. The simple truth is if you dont have a first world passport in Dubai, kuwait, Bahrain etc- you are on a long thing because they believe you are coming from an economically disadvantaged country and are likely to prostitute if you are a woman and commit fraud and trade drugs if you are a guy under 40.
    There are many countries/nationalites which the UAE gives visa on arrival without asking questions who the babes prostitute wella. Go on instagram - ever wonder how the big boobed "brand ambassador" with no brand is actually in Dubai for a week of "shopping"? There are many babes from the US of A, france, uk etc "shopping" their way through Dubai. If you are on instagram you would be humored, follow the likes of @ tagthesponsors

    And Nigerians some "big girls" who i wont name are also in on the prostituition thing. Unilag girls have also been rumoured to come to buy goods and do a 2 week turnaround.

    in addition the ages they put up are less likely to overstay their visa in an attempt to migrate to a better life. Younger People must have also started overstaying their visas.

    So they are only tryna cut back certain things, but i am sure people will find a way around it once again.

  12. So I should Marry someone above 40? Shikena.

  13. If you didnt apply...then just ignore myt just a a scam...#JoyDaNuGirl

  14. Dubai ke? Is it not that very hot country? Wetin I wan go do there? Nonsense dey smell.
    There are other beautiful places for holidays abeg.
    Go to Kenya, beautiful country.....tourist attraction.
    Next hols.......Kenya.....loading

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…


Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

One More Post...


He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
See how you are serious dey read this story....!


A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…


I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
