1K Never Meant So Much!

Can I just share my testimony, like I'm super stoked right now!

So on Saturday a lady with her boyfriend had a party in a section of Chidoz. They paid for the space which was great, we were also going to handle their food and of course, drinks. So yay! Good business, right? Last minute, I thought why not throw in some free decor, just something to spruce it up and fuel the birthday vibe. She seemed really pleased with the offer, quickly told me that her colours are pink and white. 

On Friday afternoon I rushed to Iponri market to buy some balloons, ribbons etc. Early Saturday I drove down to Chidoz to clean up as most of my staff wouldn't come until later, besides kitchen staff. I inflated balloons, hung some drapery and rearranged the tables in their section, for the party people. Surprisingly customers started to come early (Chidoz is more of a night place, but by God's grace this will change soon) and it wasn't really great handling them and doing the party thing, but it was aii. 

At about 5pm birthday girl breezed in with a friend before her party to check the place out. Beyond what they had expected, I heard her friend say the place looked really pretty. Birthday girl on the other hand walked up to me and said dismissively; "I don see your handwork ooo!"  

I smiled even though I was quite hurt that that's all the thanks I would get for work I didn't really have to do. 

Anyways, hours later her people came and the party was in full swing. It wasn't my job to attend to them but I chose to because they were a fun crown, and well, nobody will handle your business like you so.... A while later an old man in his seventies perhaps, her landlord apparently, came and took me aside. He told me that he had been watching me all night and was very impressed by my diligence and courteousness. He said he loved the way I handled the job and did it with joy. As if I have a choice... LOL. He said he will be sure to return from time to time, because I had impressed him. 

I was touched and that spurred me. 

And now tonight, a customer finished eating and handed me a 1k tip. I was confused at first. I looked at the money and back at him. He looked a bit hurt. "Is it too small?" He asked me hesitantly. 

"No sir, it's just that... nobody *sob* nobody *sob sob* has ever given me.... given me anything here *sob*" LOL, I exaggerate 😆. 

"Go to the mirror and look at yourself. Somebody of timber and caliber. Most of these people don't think that anything they can give you will be good enough. Even me, that's why I was scared. But I just had to give you something, because I really appreciate your courtesy". 

I smiled, accepted my wonderful 1k that will fetch me two bottles of fresh juice at the stadium tomorrow morning. Niiiiiiiice ☺️☺️

So at this point I just have to ask. Can somebody please send uncle Aliko (Dangote to be specific 😚) to Chidoz so that I can be extra courteous to him and get me a tip in landed property in Ikoyi, business class flight tickets or an all expense paid business course in Stratford University, Nairobi...?

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.
