This vs That.

My friend is buying some things from Amazon and asked if I wanted anything. Of course yes, I want THINGS! However there are some things I want now and I think I might be able to get from an indigenous online store. So I told him what I want from Amazon and he asked me to pick the things I want here and charge them to him. Then came the question, what online store. I've never really been able to differentiate between certain (similar) things. Last night my cousin wanted something from Konga but they said delivery would take 7-10days. She was upset so I asked her to try Jumia and she said nah, she'd rather wait for/with Konga. I asked why she preferred Konga and all she did was scrunch up her nose at Jumia, yet gave no reason whatsoever. So as I stare at my screen, excited at the prospect of owning new things I'm not paying for, I'm trying hard to decide what store to shop from. 

A few days ago I noticed for the first time at MM2 Airport that KFC and Chicken Republic share just a wall. I've never been able to tell the differences between the two. Since my Uber was a bit wrongly booked and went to the International airport instead and thus delayed me, I had time to wander. I strolled into both eatries. KFC was packed and the other was empty save for a sprinkling of people. I wondered what informed the decision of the people at KFC. I mean, those two places are one and the same to me! (I also notice they're usually very close in proximity. In Victoria Island, Ikoyi, Lekki 1 etc. Who knows why?) 

I also face this challenge when it comes to Nigerian music. Most of our artists sound exactly the same to me, so for the life of me I can't imagine why some people prefer one over the other. Wizkid and Davido for instance, I can't figure out why they don't have the exact same fans! 

I maintain that the only reason I still have a social media account is because I have a blog, so it only makes sense. Still I notice I don't have preference of one over the other. Now while Twitter and Facebook are not similar, I've made an observation over time and wondered about it. Most serious facebook lovers are rather indifferent or even disdainful towards Twitter and vice versa. I'm yet to figure out why. 

Lastly guys, this to me is also one and the same but I notice different people feel differently about sex at different times of the day. I don't know if it's all in their mind or if there are real factors that inform their choices. 

So tell me your preference guys, and also tell me why. 

Konga or Jumia
KFC or Chicken Republic. 
Wizkid or Davido
Facebook or Twitter
Early morning sex or night sex

Tell us which among the two you prefer and it would be great if you could also tell us why!!


  1. I shop at both konga and jumia for different reasons. Konga has more products and also more variety of same products but the bad thing about them is that you pay for delivery individually. Eg if you have like 5 items in your cart, you'll pay N750(within lagos) for delivery 5 times. While at jumia delivery is cheaper (like N600), plus 1 delivery charge covers everything in your cart no matter the quantity.
    Delivery time for either of them can be anything between 12hrs - 5days.

    1. My dear, i really do not agree with u. They both charge for delivery fee for every item. I recently ordered for baby items on both sites, konga charged me 1, 500 per item while jumia charged 2, 500 per item. Except in cases where I bought more than 1 item from the same shop then I didn't have to pay twice for delivery.

    2. Wait... How can you be charged delivery per item on a single order? That's fraud

    3. I shop on jumia all the time and they've never charged per item. Steel, that's konga for you.

    4. I once asked this question from one of Konga staff members. She explained that there are different merchants selling on their platform and each has to ship from its base, hence the multiple delivery charges (and more varieties available).

      Honestly, I've had to give up shopping a few times because paying multiple delivery fees did not make much sense to me.


  2. Konga
    Neither Wizkid nor Davido. Bite me
    Morning sex definitely

  3. Twitter for me...

  4. I do Jumia anytime anyday...they are the best...KFC..Wizkid...fb...nill

  5. Konga
    Chicken Republic but I love kfc's chicken and chips

  6. Stopped shopping jumia cos they always gave me fake things, my apple USB cord didn't last a week, a shirt I got ripped the first time I wore it. As for konga I don't have a complain just that I think they are a bit more expensive but haven't shopped with them in a long time.
    I've never stepped into Kfc, don't think I've ever tasted their food either. I love chicken Republic rice and beans, their chicken isn't bad at all.
    Wizkid all day, I think his music is a bit more mature than Davido's. Plus they tend to last in your mind longer. Davido's music just rave for a short while and seem to fade.
    I can't remember my Twitter password.
    Sex at anytime is the greatest sex, I think the person you have the sex with matters more than the time you have the sex.

    1. The same reason I stopped shopping Jumia too. I particularly remember a skirt and what was supposed to be its jacket which I bought on Jumia only to see same thing on Dealdey few days later for N8,000 lesser than the price I paid on Jumia. Worse still, the fabric and finishing are quite poor.


    2. yeah i love the rice and beans at chicken republic. i go there for that and the chicken toast (forgotten the name)

    3. 1) i dont like online shopping so none for me
      2) both KFC and Chicken Republic, i go for diff meals
      3) i love both wizkid and Davido, can't pick
      4) definitely Twitter, i don't understand facebook anymore
      5) i don't like sex so no time, would rather be left alone

  7. Konga or Jumia: Never shopped on any of em.

    KFC or Chicken republic: KFC. Wider variety.

    Wizkid or Davido: Few years back it was Wizkid, now its Davido. Davido has matured alot in his music. Wizkid is just not doing it anymore.

    Facebook or Twitter: I do both. I spend more time on Twitter tho, because the messages are concise, information comes faster, you can be specific with the kind of information you want and the creativity on twitter is just crazy.

    Early morning or night sex: How about sex in the morning, then breakfast, then sex in the afternoon , then lunch, then sex at night. Perfect!


  8. Konga because I have a lot of substandard items I got from Jumia

    Facebook because I have not given twitter much chance as I do not think I can manage both well. It just happened that I got on Facebook first. I cannot even remember my username and password on Twitter

    Neither Wizkid nor Davido

    Sex is best for me during work-free days whatever time of the day. If I remember I have to leave home early for work, it loses some of its appeal.

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?

Closed Chapter...

Hello everyone, yesterday a friend said to me, Thelma I love your blog, I've told so many people about your blog, I think you're a very good writer but I feel there's something you're not doing right"

This friend was the first person who won our beauty of the day contest back then in 2014. Then we had met just once through a mutual friend. I mentioned the blog to her and she became an instant reader. I wouldn't have exactly called her a friend then but yesterday as we sat down waiting for our Uber to come get us from Wal-Mart, she's definitely my friend and I knew she was coming from a good place when she said she had much higher expectations of my blog.

Me too.

But you see, in the last year or so, maybe even longer than that, I haven't felt much joy in blogging. It began to feel more and more of a laborious chore, one which I hardly reaped any fruits from.

I really love writing, I love sharing my life and my experiences with others and I've enjoy…

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!
