Happiness From Within

Image result for quotes on happiness from within

I tried to understand why things are going same way,
I tried to justify my actions,
I tried to question my instincts,
I tried to perfect all my imperfections just to be accepted,
I tried to lower my standards just so I can accommodate different flaws,
I tried to just live life just so I won’t be tag too serious.

But what I failed to realize is that i’m a unique being,
I was created in a special way,
I was made to love myself first before anyone will,
My standards ain’t high, some people are not just worth having me,
I can’t be someone else to prove a point to those who doesn’t deserve me,
Tomorrow is pregnant so, therefore, my time will surely come.

Why brood over people that don’t create time to be with you?
Why accommodate unnecessary personalities that only make you sad?
Why let yourself to believe everyone can be your friends when clearly is not true?
Why justify the actions of unserious people in your life?

You are worth more than diamonds!
You are wonderfully made!
You are the peaceful heart to a troubled soul!
Treasure the few friends you have,
Value quality over quantity,
Smile for your turn to laugh over your sorrows has come!!

Loving My Baby Oil!!!!!!

Have always been the type that doesn’t fancy the usage of body creams as I really don’t believe they work for me. Most times after purchase, no matter how expensive it was, I find myself giving it out because was  getting pretty bored with it from not seeing positive results.

I have a combination skin so I try to be careful what I use on my body, a lesson I have learnt after a reaction I  had recently. I have used creams, oils but I still didn’t get the wow factor, so I made up mind to do intensive researches on oils and decided to start with Boots baby oil.

WHY!!!! Well for one I have seen how supple and soft it makes my niece skin looks and somehow just believed it gonna do same for me depite being an adult.lol.

REVIEWS!!!!! To be honest, I love it, it moisturizes my skin and doesn’t dry out so easily. I usually apply body creams or oils at night because I really don’t like to be bothered about them during the day. Have read so many articles that body creams work best at night so it became part of me, however once in a while I do use it on my body during the day.

Have also noticed that it evens my complexion which am so happy for right now. It gonna takes roughly 2-3 months before it gets exhausted, I sure will get another one if I don’t get a much better oil to research on. But for now, it is working for me and that’s all that matters.

Google, My Bestie


Google has never by any chance disappointed me ever since I decided to stop seeing it as a mere search engine. He is a friend I can count on whenever am a bit confused and these days when someone ask me about something I just say ask google, he is everyone’s best friend.

My response could pissed you off but that is the gospel truth. My best friend has saved me from making some decisions that could cost me my time and money. If I have an interview summon, all I need to do is ask google about it, I don’t even need to elaborate, just give highlights and I will get enough reviews that will help me make a decision of going for it or not especially with all these HMO agents that have a way of having your data with them. With my google search I just ignore such movements.

Even before buying a product, I just find out online if is worth my hard earned cash and if the reviews I get is 70% positive then I give it a benefit of doubt and if is not I just ignore it. Is as simple as that. I actually thought I was the only one guilty of such but have come across people that reason same way as I do and some has confessed to be addicted to Google. Yes you can get addicted to it if you aren’t careful and that is something I usually discourage people from.

Is understandable that we are no longer far from having ideas about different things pertaining to life due to accessible network service,  but when it comes to health I don’t encourage asking google. If at first you decides you want to have an idea of what is going on with you, fine that is ok but when you are actually trying to do self medication through online prescription, then that is where I don’t agree with anyone.

Imagine you are having an abdominal pain which could be as a result of ovulation and you feel there isn’t time for you to get to the hospital and instead you decides to ask google who gives you different reasons why you maybe experiencing abdominal pain, you find yourself picking the most dreadful reason which could be fibroid that was listed or may be PID(Pelvic inflammatory disease). You now find yourself looking for symptoms in your body that wasn’t there in the first place and by so doing your body start mimicking the symptoms you want it to have. All you have successfully done is feed your mind with negativity instead of just seeing your doctor that could have alleviated your fears.

Therefore, even though google happens to be my dear bestie, our friendship have boundaries but don’t know about you.

Reno Omokri Giving Me The Vibes!!!

I love epic response so much and the person giving me the vibes presently is Reno Omokri, former special assistant to the former president, Goodluck  Jonathan. Seriously is not expected of you to always responds to someone’ tweet if you don’t understand the topic on discussion, and even though you are allowed to offer your opinion, it is advisable to get facts right before doing that in order to save yourself the embarrassment that will sure come afterwards.

Reno Omokri tweeted that within one year of office, the former president GEJ built some universities in some listed states and a Twitter user wanted proof that GEJ actually built one of them. See the twitter conversation below;

Now read Reno’s reply to this question and also proof to back up his previous statement.

Another scenario saw Reno Omokri tweeting about what is going on with respect to power supply and a twitter user who obviously didn’t take enough time to understand what Reno was saying quickly lashed at him and Reno’s response was hilarious.

Reno’s hilarious response got me laughing so hard chaiiii

Please before you lash at someone, check yourself very well, this is very important.



When You Are Remembered By FIRS!!!



I got to the office this morning and started the day with the usual routine. My office happens to have this penthouse view, you could see people coming into the premises from my end. So as I looked out the window I saw this group of people coming in and I could just read their body language, that spoke nothing but insecurity and guilt.

You know that expression of ‘I know am not worthy, but please bear with me because my survival depends on this’ when you are doing something that is not justified and expects or hope to be accepted. Well, I had formed my opinion of them already due to how their visit usually ends in some trivial decisions and as such, had a ready attitude waiting for them. They walked in and I was just busy with my phone while my junior colleague attended to them. They introduced themselves as FIRS ( Federal Inland Revenue Service)officials and went on to enlighten us on VAT and other taxes payable. All this while, I would only look up to steal a glance at their miserable faces, and continue my business with my phone.

Then they made that stupid remark; “oh you make hair here” when our products were glaring at them! That was when I looked up for the longest time and gave them the coldest stare ever, and corrected them with a high pitch tone. Am sure you know what that means? Amazing how rude one can be when irritated!

Well, it happens that they didn’t pick any offence with that, as they were somewhat happy to have finally gotten my attention. They seized the opportunity to lecture us on VAT and other taxes payable. And in the same vein, I used the opportunity to pour my venom on them as well. I had to ask them what they have been doing with all the taxes that employees and employers have been paying all these years. Imagine the amount of money that is being realized from VAT and PAYE from companies both small, medium and large sizes, hotels, restaurants communication companies etc! Is it being invested in Education, Energy, Security, Infrastructures or is it the Power sector that was in a management state before the “Change Administration” took over and it’s now non-existent!

Anyway, I don’t want to bore you more than I have done, with my ordeal with those faithful officers. Hmmm did I just call them faithful? Well, just to cover up the wound. They claimed to be the ones funding most federal school projects and that 20% of the total amount spent on security comes from them. OK ooh we sincerely hope that there is an iota of truth in that!

Finally, I collected their booklet and phone number and promised to relate all to my boss, who will, in turn, get back to them. But I was really happy, they availed me that opportunity to give them a piece of my mind.

After they left, I had to ponder on what the outcome of the visit will be if my boss decides to call them for their services which to an extent is inevitable because all organizations no matter the size has been mandated to always pay tax.

Remembering the experiences of two close buddies of mine really got me worried, because I recalled them saying that the visit from FIRS resulted in their salaries being slashed all in the name of tax deduction. Their management issued a renewed employment letter stating that their salary will no longer be the same rather it will be calculated as after-tax thus explaining the fact that henceforth salaries will be slashed, and no one could question the method by which the calculations will be done. I could remember how worried they were because the salary wasn’t even enough to take care of their living expenses, so they knew with this development, is gonna be worse. Of course, they had to manage as there was no alternative as at then.

Shout Out To The Wannabe’s!!!

This act of ladies forming and claiming to be big girls when ordinary they are worst than a church rat is becoming overwhelming and most times irritating. You get to see women fall prey to 419ners aka smart guys just because they don’t want people to see them as ignorant. My uncle used to say that  ‘He who ask questions never stumbles’, which is so true.

You see a well-dressed lady been duped in the airport just because she felt too big to walk up to the right ticketing counter to ask questions which most times is just a few steps from them. That was how I felt like slapping a lady that in my very presence wanted to pay additional =N=5,000 to get her boarding pass just because the check in time has close, as the airport tout claimed. She was quite lucky I was standing beside the FAAN customer service counter and somehow overheard their discussion and I quickly interjected that she should try to run down to the check-in counter, that she can still make it. Only for her to ask if I can help her that she cannot run. She did not even wait for my answer before she started walking down because the sharp look I gave her was like that of a mother to a child.

I keep asking within myself why do ladies act like this especially in the airport, but it seems is everywhere. I was in a keke (tricycle) going home that same day, when a lady sitting beside me started acting up as if she has never used a public transport before, she was just hissing and forming phonetics under the harsh sun, murmuring that the driver should take it easy and saying to no one in particular how she hated public transport especially keke as the drivers are so ruthless in their driving, and that she will surely deal with her driver for putting her in this predicament. Within me, I was like God when will you bless me to have my own car because it seems this lady even have more than one.

However, luck wasn’t on her side when the driver stopped to pick up another passenger to sit on the front seat with him and guess what? The passenger knows her and greeted her but she answered like she wasn’t interested but the friend didn’t want it to rest and straight up ask her if she was able to collect her change from the bus conductor the previous day and even applauded her on how she was attacking the conductor. Chai so unfortunate but she had to answer her. I just shook my head, because every lady wants to form big girl.

Getting home, I was narrating the two different scenarios to my neighbor and her brother who came in from Abuja and he was laughing and told us is same in Abuja. He works as an admin manager in a hotel and on a fateful day, a lady came in well dressed to see a guest and because the receptionist spent time trying to ascertain the guest she flared up and was insulting the receptionist and even threaten to get the staff sacked.

My neighbor’s brother had to intervene in the matter, after which she went in to see her guest and spent the entire night, only for her to have been deceived by her guest as the guest charged part of the bill to her name and checked out the following day.
She was not aware of that until she got to the receptionist desk. Trying to reach the guest on the phone proved abortive and that was when she knew she was on her own. She started crying and pleading that the management should have pity on her that she does not have cash on her and that she came all the way from Kaduna. After the pleas and crocodile tears, they gave her option of dropping her belongings which included her Iphone 6 or washing the dishes in the kitchen from 9am to 1pm. She chose doing the dishes, which she did before being allowed to go.

Just last week Sunday I was in church and it was time for offering, and this posh lady whom I had been admiring her bag started telling me she wanted to use =N=1,000 for offering but seems she has misplaced it and she can’t give God the =N=200 she has because is her transport fare home, if I can help her with =N=500 to use as offering? Hia…like seriously? I told her to use the cash she has and will later give her =N=200 for her transport. She mumbled cool but I know she wasn’t pleased and I didn’t even get to see her at the close of service.

Seriously, why not be real? This happens all the time and is becoming annoying.

Can’t I Be My Brother’s Keeper?

It really makes me feel bad when someone is trying to outsmart his fellow just because he/she doesn’t have the right information. I believe in doing unto others what you want them to do to you and what goes around comes around.

I was at the airport bus stop waiting for my colleague very early in the morning around 4:45 am on my way to work, when a particular guy obviously on an early morning flight, flagged down a bike man and asked to be taken to MMA1(Old local airport). I could hear all they were saying and the next thing the bike man said was it will cost him =N=2,000. I didn’t even know when I screamed Jesus Christ!!!!! After much hassling the passenger told him he can’t afford it and the bike man was trying to cajole him but he was adamant and the bike man left hoping to make the passenger feel that is the actual fare.

The guy stood at that spot and when he saw my colleague and I trying to flag down a bike, He quickly walked up to us and asked how much will take him to the airport and I told him is =N=100. He was shocked and even told me he knew something was amiss because of my exclamation when the bike man mentioned =N=2,000 and He felt I didn’t want to chip in due security reason as this is Lagos and I was like yes, before i will turn mugu or disappear just because i want to help someone, so had to exclaim and hoped he got the message I was trying to pass across to him. He took another bike that the bike man sincerely told him it will cost him =N=100.

Narrating the incidence to someone in the office later, he was saying why didn’t I mind my own business, that don’t I know I spoiled the bike man’s business? The shock from that outburst was an overstatement, I was angry at how he was reasoning. So he preferred that the passenger is duped? What if he was the one and no one could be there to help him from a dubious business and how would he feel? His own response was this is Lagos and one has to shine his/her eyes.

Gosh, seriously people tend to forget that Karma is a bitch. Someone like that bike man shouldn’t be surprised that one of his kids in future will complain of been duped and then he will start raining curses on the fellow forgetting he once did it in the past. Hearing the conversation in the office, another of my colleague chipped in that he is praying God forgive him cos he knows and believe in that statement of what goes around comes around, that he deceived his dad during his school days just to exhort money to give to his girlfriends and buy expensive items in order to belong and he knows his own kids will do same to him but he is getting prepared for that.

Well there is no one who didn’t try to play smart with his/her folks during school days and the ideology then was they are our parents and after all, we didn’t steal it. Well, we should be prepared for it then.
