11 Travel Tips for Nigerians this Christmas

Trips during the Christmas period can be hectic and exhausting, so depending on your circumstance this may not always be possible. However, it’s holiday season. Smile, talk to the stranger sitting next to you on the bus or flight. Don’t wait till there’s turbulence and you feel like you might be about to die before you say hello. Take a few pictures at your stops. Make memories and live a little.

My Maid of Honour Toast

Having been a member of the Toastmasters Club, I like to think that writing and giving toasts are right up my alley. However, putting this together and delivering it proved to be more challenging than I had anticipated.

My Bestfriend’s Wedding

Anytime I expressed my happiness and excitement for her there was always someone there to compare our personal lives and tell me to “tap into her blessing” or ask me “So, when is your own?”. It felt like I was supposed to be in some kind of competition or at the very least want to be married because she was getting married.

Review: Waffle Spot, Dunes Center – Maitama

Oh, I’m quite excited to tell you about this one. I had the heartiest breakfast in the most serene environment, prepared and served by courteous and friendly staff. I think it is a great place for a family breakfast and I’m sure your kids would enjoy the choice of ice-cream along with breakfast, and find the colourful fresh fruits a delight.

Asaba Massacre Memorial Day 2017 Itinerary

Exactly 50 years ago today, Saturday, the 7th of October, over a thousand civilians in Asaba, mostly men, were murdered by soldiers of the Nigerian Army. Though on hearing that the war was approaching the town, many indigenes had fled across the Niger, a good number remained because the town was not part of Biafra, not even on the Biafran map. They were Nigerians, many of whom were professionals and civil servants working in Benin before the war.

Book and Movie Review: It by Stephen King

After 2 weeks and 1,138 pages I’ve come to 2 conclusions; first it is impossible for any director to bring the book to life in its entirety because of its sexually explicit and truly horrifying murder scenes, and second Stephen King is either unimaginably talented or simply disturbed if not possessed by a malevolent spirit.
