It is always fun to travel. My earliest memory of traveling is staring out at the trees speeding past on either side of the endless stretch of road, and then drifting in and out of sleep in the backseat of my dad’s Peugeot 504.

I haven’t discussed my relationship with make-up with you, but you should know that it’s my one true love. I’ve worn make-up at least 5 days a week for the past 10 years.

Bored with the office canteen’s food, my colleagues and I were deliberating on what to have for breakfast. Then one of them suggested we try moi-moi from the “Moi-Moi Factory”. I couldn’t hide my amusement at the name and its obvious similarity to “Charlie’s Chocolate Factory”. I was intrigued and immediately decided I’d try some.
I am keen on individuality and creativity so the idea of personalizing my card with a nice picture appealed to me. I quickly decided that when my current card expired, I’d renew it with First Bank Expressions.
Trokadero Bowling Center is in Wuse 2 on Ademola Adetokumbo Crescent, Abuja. Finding this place using Google Maps is tricky because it’s spelled as The “Trukadero” Place. However, here’s the location link.
You know those mornings when you wake up feeling like all is right with the world? This morning was just that. I woke up feeling really good. Stepped on the scale and I had lost 2kgs. My tummy felt flatter than usual thanks to my new diet regime, so for work, my black bodycon dress was in order.
