RANT!

Hello my guys, I am sorry for the late update....I really want to be posting every week, but my body no be wood oo (kai! remove that naughty thought from ya heads!) I now sleep off immediately i get home because I have stopped taking coffee and tylenol, I don't want my body to get used to it....when I wake by 12pm, I eat, bath do some chores and back to sleep by 4pm. Today, I said, I must update! I am watching shoki and laughing as I type, we are talented abeg! 

HA! So much has been happening in my place of work o! Abeg, theory is different from practical ....as always! I tried to do all I learnt during my orientation and computer training, but I realized today, that OYO (on your own) was my case! ahaha! A colleague had advised me before to pretend I don't know when issues arise and another said  more duties will be added to my schedule since I work too hard. Of course, I didn't listen because ITK is my middle name and it has been shoved up my a** this week! It hurts, I won't pretend, but I have gotten over it and re-strategized! I have sent my zeal on vacation and dumping all my training into the trash! It is BS!

I now know why people say men managers are better than women managers! I remember my friend and cousin nearly resigned from their jobs because of their female boss. Believe me, some female managers are really a piece of s***! There is one in my place of work that no good word is said about her! Some employees resigned over the years because of her high-handed patronizing attitude ... you know how an arrogant person tries to be humble but it just comes off! I just look at her like a power drunk b****! This type of person like people to be following her like mumu, anyone that divert from that path gets a vindictive reprisal from her. Coworkers said they were surprised at her attitude, that, before she got to that position, she was quiet as a mouse, when luck shined on her and was promoted to that position, she bared her fangs! I believe she never dreamt of getting to that position and when she did.....

Nevertheless, my place of work is good, in all fairness, I have to simply learn to follow what others are doing...be seen and be silent. ...OK, it is past 4pm, my bedtime! ADIOS!

CHANGE!

MY PEOPLE! We are now trying oo. Nollywood is going places! I couldn't believe the 2 movies I just watched in Netflix is from my father's land! I gave it 5 stars! I doff my 'gele' for the actresses and producers for making me proud! A standing ovation for ROAD TO YESTERDAY and FIFTY! Yep! I am shouting out the titles because I believe in giving dues when it is deserved.

I am a passive fan of Nollywood movies, I mostly watched movies produced by Tunde Kelani, Tunde Ogidan and Kunle Afolayan. These 2 movies I just watched were well edited, dialogues tight and the producers captured the beautiful places in Nigeria .... swe-et! {In Panda's voice}. I also like the movies; Mr and Mrs, Irapada, Figurine, ties that bind and few I cannot remember their titles right now. Nse Etim, Dakore, Akindele, Genevieve, Mercy and Omotola are my fav actresses. Epic movies are my all time fav! Anything that has history or traditional background in it, I watch, hence Asian films are on my fav list....hmm...using fav too much qui? #grins#

Change is the only constant thing that is dynamic in life and Nollywood is changing for good and I look forward to watching more on Netflix on my days off. Talking of change, I have changed my perspective about some issues in life because of my  experiences and environment. Hence, not advisable to say never to anything.

I still believe in Nigeria for a positive change, which starts from within us as individuals! And it is a gradual process just as Nollywood has done starting from the days of living in bondage to road of yesterday and in the next 50 years Nollywood will be a household name like their international counterparts.

Gracias!

p.s; I can't believe i have been awake since 1.00am...almost 9am now....watching new episodes of Jane the virgin as I update .... funny....and relaxing. Rogelio is my fav character in the show...that guy is something else...as in?!!! AHAHAHA

p.s.s; I chose a small blue laptop few weeks back instead of the big black type I always had, very easy to carry around and I now wear red lipstick to work  .... hubby was surprised because I seldom wear make-up....that is CHANGE! #wink# Adios!

BABY SHOWER WITH 9JA FLAVOUR!

.....so! My dear readers, as I was saying last week, before I digressed to another post, our 9ja people know how to add flavour to any culture they adopt. Baby shower was imported from abroad by our celebrities, which is gradually becoming a norm in certain circles ....no, the average 9ja woman is yet to practice this adopted culture, because she wants to see omo-mo{baby} first before celebrating. But diasporas are not bothered ..... since they are in 'Rome', they want to behave like the 'Romans'... telling the sex of the baby ...which in 9ja is a 'top' secret the mother guides until her EDD. Abi you want make 'them' change am for her belly? Yes o, we are superstitious. And some scan results don't come out right....stories abound!

.....so! I jokingly asked if the party was a baby shower or naming ceremony? Because of the orishirishi; Jollof rice ati fried rice, assorted meat, asun, cake, chin-chin etc. 'Yes, baby shower with 9ja flavour' my hubby replied while laughing, infact that was how I got the title for this post. The few baby showers I have seen here is simple with light refreshments and over within 2 hours, that,with $100-$200, one can have a nice baby shower without going overboard; soda,cake, chips, cookies, candies and small chops. Daz all!

.....as we all know, baby showers here are usually organised by friends or family or colleagues, to help the mother-to-be with baby items and the celebrant don't need to go buying that special dress to wear that day, as I have seen some of our 9ja women do, anything nice in the wardrobe will do, and the celebrant do not spend a dime in the preparation but some of our 9ja women are the ones that spend for it! 

.....em, the question on some if not many Nigerians mind is; Do one still bring baby gift on the naming ceremony day after giving one during the baby shower? I have no answer! Simply use your discretion. What I do is that, whatever amount I have decided to spend, I split it into two and buy the gifts, give one during the baby shower, the other during the naming ceremony. Q.E.D! What I see here is that, after the woman puts to bed, she does baby christening months later inviting people and have a party. 

Nevertheless, not all diasporas have baby showers, some prefer to have only the naming ceremony. Personally, I always like to wait to know the sex of my baby after delivery....so, baby shower is not my thing...after I born pickin, come and celebrate with me. Ese o. (Thank you.)

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY AMERICA! YE-HAWWW!
