morning thoughts

Just got up now and decided to put up a post. Actually there's nothing on my mind just the simple fact that its good to be alive, just another day, just another reason for me to look up and give thanks to my creator up there, the Lord God that sits in the heavens and makes the earth His footstool,the Lord that sits up there and watch over my affairs smiles and shakes His head cos He knows the plans He has for me are plans of good and not of evil, plans to bring me to all my expectations through Christ Jesus. Yeah I'm happy to be alive, what with all these buildings collapsing left right and center, with all these strange sicknesses knocking on people's doors and taking them to hospitals,I'm alive. With poverty so far from my doorstep when all around me is the strong stench of poverty,when hundreds of people queue up everyday at bus stations waiting for buses,with thousands of graduates roaming the steets in search of jobs but finding none,and here am I updating a blog comfortably on my bed by 6:15am and I shouldn't give a super duper thanks to God??? You dive rock!!!!
Baba God I thank you!!! Baba I say THANK YOU. Eshe baba, Nagode allah!! Chineke Imeala!! Aziba Aloa ohhhh!!! Thank you Dear Lord and may your great name be praised by Your creations for ever and ever and ever. Amen!!!. Thank you Dear Lord....

My own Nigerian film

I want to blog about something that happened recently to me, and I swore I was going to blog about it,damning the consequences.I want to say in all honesty that whenever I heard about sexual molestation by lecturers and all sorts to girls, I always attributed them to home videos and jokingly discarded them as people's imaginations.That was until I became the one in the home video.
I got a new job and was elated about the new prospects and challenges I'd be facing, went shopping for new work clothes, shoes, accessories just to step up the swag and impress new colleagues and bosses, not knowing that I was looking for better trouble and forgetting that in Naija being a fine young and single chick spelt trouble!!!
First day at work, my new Boss quickly summons me and gives me my job schedules and assignments and lands the bombshell as I was leaving the office, '' You're a fine girl oh' . Hewuuu!!! I gave him my most naivest-small-pikin-smile, looked down and answered ''thank you sir'' and ran out of the office!!
Got home, got on the phone, called my friends ,and gave them gist,and some of them advised I better start wearing a fake engagement ring to the office.You can imagine!!!
I continue going to the office without any ring whatsoever, and kept on dodging and playing kpankpangolo with my new oga till yesterday when we were caught in a lift together . That was the closest in my life I had ever gotten to receiving unwanted sexual gestures from the opposite sex.
I won sha sha and stated bluntly to him that i was not interested in going to bed with him, and besides I was getting married soon, and this 50 something year old man had the nerve to tell me nothing was wrong with that because he was also married with children!! Beat that!!
Baba stil summoned me to his office and that was when real drama started. Before I knew what was happening this daddy was on his knees begging and pleading and ranting about how much he loves me, how he'll buy me the latest blackberry phone, how he'll take me to all the shengen countries, how he'll hand over the official car to me, how he'll help me get lands and government contracts, still kneeling oh!! Kai!
I couldnt even talk, I was just so disgusted with the whole scene,that I did the first thing I thought of,which was to start crying and run out of the office.I've not gone back since yesterday and my fones are all off.
So thats my story, thank God I didn't quit my old job, I just took my annual leave, so the home video does have a happy ending.
Everyone is of a different opinion, but well human beings are all different, the way I handled it would not be the same way another chick would handle the situation.But in all I'm happy I handled it my way, which is never to set foot in that building again, make dem go with their shine shine buildings and plenty salary. My small 8520 fone wey i dey use do me.... Nonsense!!

blackerries,crackberries,swankberries and the pinging fever.

Ok. So after all my shakara and nyanga and demo, and Proud Of Not Owning A Blackberry status I post all the time , I finally joined the swankberrys league. Shame on you Zhaanna!!! shame on you. No be you say bla bla bla blackberry dis blackberry dat, now you too haf finally bowed to the beautiful ever glowing ever worshipped rim goddess known as the bb.
Well really twas not my fault,because where I come from, it is a taboo to reject a gift, and so when a glowing glistening, dark toy was handed over to me {courtesy my boss} who was I to say no???
So the pinging fever has finally caught up with me,and honestly I won't say I'm complaining but most days I feel like just turning off all connections and just have me some little silence.
So the plan is once my digicam recovers from its broken screen sickness,i'll hit the streets and do a proper research on blackberrys, the latest versions,the purewater versions{you can imagine!!} the pimped out versions, the bold statements version and everything I can lay my hand on....
Btw...Miss my cam so much....

My Black is Beautiful

Hmn....seems like it was just yesterday that 6th was here, and already its 31st and we're already saying goodbye to july. 6th was the day i gushed out from mamma's womb, all dark and tiny and screaming my lungs out, {well that's what momsy told me} and believe you me I'm still a fighter,a screamer, I cant fit carry last na! for naija??? na lie!
When I was born I was so dark that everyone called me "blacky" from day one. My big sis, rest her soul, was also a blacky but I was the master blacky. Mum is not so dark but Pop is and he made sure he gave his daughters enough skin colour.
As a little girl growing up, being a smally and blacky was easy, since I was very bright and sharp, reading big big books way before my peers, answering all the questions in class correctly, being the first to open bible passages in church and reading it so neat at such little age, making my parents so proud of me cos everytime after church people would walk up to them, praising that their small blacky daughter and always asking "how old is she?"
Well that na small pikin time. As an adult I tell you being a blacky is not easy, when light skin is being flaunted everywhere?? when almost all the adverts on tv na fair babes dem dey use, almost all the babes in entertainment na fair babes, club nko? na dat side the thing pain me pass, if I no wear shine shine cloth and enough lip gloss for my mouth my bobo no go see me at all! Not to small thing oh!
That's why I respect dark women that make it in Naija's Entertainment Industry, the likes of Mo Abudu, Joke Silva , Kate Henshaw Nuttal, Funlola Aofiyiebi Raimi, and my heroine of all time, Genevieve Nnaji and all the many more dark women holding their side strongly in the game. I hear Genevieve was even denied a role when she was still upcoming simply because they needed a fair babe for the role,{ na gist oh i dont know how true it is} and I'm happy that dark skin is so selling in the modelling world, with the likes of Alec Wek and all those other dark skinned beauties doing their thing on the runway and making millions from being black {if only I was taller with broader shoulders, dreams dreams dreams}
In all I'm happy I get lovely catcalls everywhere I go, with names like 'my color' and 'black beauty' following me all about especially in market places. lol! So I really do appreciate this my ebony, i dont need expensive creams, i don't get sunburnt, my imperfections and scars that refuse to dissapear are perfectly hidden and above all my man is madly, crazily, uncontrollably going gaga about me so mmnnn what a happy happy world! Goodbye July see you next year!

P:S na the ebony black be dis,hope you likes..

Mr Incredible and Egberi Popsy's 'LIfe Anagaga'

I just finished listening to one of Timaya's new track featuring M.I titled Life Anagaga.That's ibo for life dey go dey go.that is to say no matter what happens and is happening, life just keeps on going.How true!
I woke up this morning with deep thoughts plaguing me, you know the usual what ifs. What does tomorrow have in store for me?, what if I don't succeed? what if this and what if that? and then I hear M.I's voice on the radio announcing the Egberi Popsy,and i'm like that's new,and immediately I was distracted from my thoughts.
The song generally talks about life and its hustles,when there was no money then and now there's so much you don't know what to do with it, also comparing life to an 'Onyeburu'. I really do not know the literal meaning of onyeburu but i know those days in Portharcourt,growing up, we always heard of onyeburu.They were men who go to houses that do not have decent latrine systems and who defecate in buckets,and at night the onyeburu comes to carry the buckets of human waste to throw away {disgusting job but how man go do?}. So in those days in primary school, if someone insults you that 'ya papa na onyeburu' you go cry till school go close!
Well back to Timaya's song, he says 'onyeburu na turn by turn' meaning today will be my turn to lift sh@%&*t, tomorrow will be your turn. Reminds me of the famous Ecclesiastics 3 passage which says There's a time for everything.
Somehow somehow,the song got to me and revived my low spirits cos I got to thinking that if better days are not here right now life still goes on, and not seeing better days now doesn't mean they won't come tomorrow,after all 'Onyeburu na turn by turn' . So chill, relax, maintain,cool down, cos this life, Omo na turn by turn.

My own Affang soup

Peoples!!!! how y'all doing??? its been raining rats and mice since yesterday know what i mean? the type of rain that drizzles all day and never stops.You dont get wet ,just very cold and irritated.
I decided to make the best out of a very gloomy saturday, how? by preparing a delicacy i enjoy very much,my own affang soup,not the conventional affang we all know but in my own little way i have discovered a not so big secret in making my affang much more interesting and very very delicious.And i a'int sharing!! lol.
Anyways its gots lots of greens as usual,with loads of red pepper,a very massive chunk of kpomo {who no know kpomo na you know} just some little red meat and some dry fish,no stockfish and my secret ingredient.
It comes out looking swell and super, I down it with a plate of boiled rice no eba nor poundi, just hot white rice with a bottle of chilled coke 50cl, rub my bloated belly smile and relax in front of the tv. Now that's my idea of heaven
So i'm off to the kitchen now cos there's this aroma calling out to me and i've got to answer. Later peoples and..... enjoy....

friends for benefits

Some people never just learn to say no.... i dont wanna be friends with you....hello?????
Get it! when you come to see me i dont leave what i'm doing to talk to you! when you call my phone I don't take your calls.and you know why i dont wanna be friends with you? cos all you do when you come over is call your boyfriends and spend time chatting with them while your husband sits at home thinking you're with your friend. You dont come to see me cos you want to,you come to see me cos there's something up your sleeve,my crib is just the perfect alibi for your fun times like you call them.
Well nobody forced you to get married,nobody says you shouldnt make the best out of your marriage.Nobody says cheating on your husband is the best escape from problems at home.
Point is why are so many many married women these days having extra marital affairs,and also publicly flaunting it? gone are the days when it was just the men that have exrta marital affairs, gone are those days when it was just a man's world,today most women are boldly having affairs and openly flaunting it,or what else would you call it when a well known married woman walks out of a hotel at an ungodly hour laughing and giggling girlishly with a man who's not her husband by her side??
What's my take in all of this? a woman should never never never ever cheat on her man no matter his crime.We are demi goddesses, we create and carry beings in us for nine months,we give life and nuture them,we replenish the earth.We should keep ourselves holy and hallow, and not to be influenced by society and all its norms and vices.Well that's just my own point,it will be good for some and bad for some.
Anyhu just some pics from the south depicting our rainy days, enjoy...

wetin my eye see

Yesterday i was on my own jejeje coming back from lunch when all of a sudden i heard loud sirens behind me. i bein wan run but i just hold my side, come maintain.It was our own First lady on her way to commission something something,and as i stood and watched i noticed they were slowing down and the hullaballoo was getting closer and closer to where i was.Trust me tatafo no 1, i quickly donned my serious girl look and before you could say jack sparrow i was part of the entourage, feeling like a journalist ansd snapping away.All those years of going to the library as a little girl and borrowing only Enid Blyton's Secret Seven and Famous Five were finally paying, i should say. snap snap snap lolz!
Mummy { as we call all our first ladys and governor's wives and commissioner's wives,even if we old pass them well well,as far as dem fit dash us something dem don turn our mummy.local government chairman wife sef na mummy} was here to commission Safe Delivery For Mothers, a programme aimed at reducing death rates amongst pregnant mothers especially those in the rural areas.The place was swarming with Governor's wives,minister's wives and all the female powers that be in Naija.Not to small thing oh! wetin my eye see. i come dey wonder when me sef go come be like these women,my time dey come i know.
Dame Patience is indeed very lucky, with all that slowly rising up from a College of Education lecturer's wife, to a deputy governor's wife, to a governor's wife, to a Vice President's wife and finally the over all prize a President's wife and i'm not a fan of that name 'patience'.Well, lesson learnt.
Enuff rants sue,give me pics i want pics! lolz!!

Nigerian's 11th year of uninterrupted democracy rule

Today is the 29th of may,the day we celebrate the return of democracy to Nigeria and this year is special cos its the 11th year and our young democracy is still on,growing slowly but with the zeal and will to grow,i think she has some ailments cos she's taking so slow to grow but don't misquote me she is growing.... amidst poverty amidst poor governance,amidst more than 521 different languages,Afeniferes,MEND,MOSOP,MASSOB,Boko Harams,OPC boys Bakassi Boys,amidst so many sects and groups,she still stays afloat,defying them all and daring them to do their worst!
She is here to stay, she is here to damn all them non african leaders and some as well saying we should divide along religious lines or among ethic lines.Na Lie!Urhobo soldier go everly climb up to kafanchan go see one hot yarinya for there marry am sharp sharp!,egbira woman go everly come down to rumukurushi to come sell fish see one hot looking ikwerre bobo tanda there. Na Lie!! we no go break or scatter. Our uniqueness is in our diversity, in our ability to travel 10,11,12,20 to 24 hours away from home{try travelling from Yenegoa to Maiduguri} and still feel welcome and loved in that little town far away from home and start a trade comfortably.That's our uniqueness.
So in my own little way I celebrate with my country today....by pledging to be faithful,loyal and honest,to serve her with all my strength, to defend her unity,and uphold her honor and glory...so help me God.{just rephrased our National pledge! lol!!}
Happy democracy Day Naija...

Naija!!! da hustle continues.....

Timaya and Bayelsa State.

Gist around town has it that if not for egberi-papa1 himself,Timaya repping the state,Bayelsa State wouldn't have been widely known in Nigeria. True????
Well for me that is a big LIE!!! maybe for the uneducated yes but to say that timaya is the major reason bayelsa came into limelight in Nigeria is a big LIE.
and na for public transport naim dis gist dey happen so.Me i just kept quiet and listened to all their ramblings because if i had opened my mouth in that bus,na another thing for happen.
First of,Bayelsa state was created out of Rivers state by the late President Sanni Abacha in 1996. It was created at the same time as was Ekiti, Ebonyi, Gombe, Nassarawa and Zamfara States.The name itself is an acronym of Brass,YEnagoa and SAgbama local government areas,and its headquarters is at Yenagoa{an hour thirty minutes drive from Portharcourt }.
Yes most of our communities are completely surrounded by water and are inaccessible by road,but not everywhere is covered by water as some people claim.Major cities like Kaima,Ogbia town, Yenagoa,Amassoma are all accessible by road and are flooded with hausas, ibos, and yorubas just like every other major city in our country.
So it really baffles me that even in nysc camps you come across young Nigerians that have never heard of Bayelsa and ask you stupid questions like "is it in Anambra?
" lol!
We are Ijaws and our major language is Izon,but there is also the Epie language,the Izon language which Timaya speaks,the Ogbia language which I speak and which F.Y.I, Our great President, Dr Goodluck Jonathan speaks{ yes he is from Bayelsa State and yes he is from the Ogbia speaking part,} and there is also the Nembe language which is the language of the current Governor. But English is the general language and we love to break the pidgin well well well
Aah Bayelsa! We Love groove!! we no dey carry last for grooving at all at all and we gat the dough! We dun buy no drinks at the bar we pop champagne cos we gat that dough, lemme hear ye say ah ah ah!.But thats the truth man.
Well what more, we are majorly Christians, but we still uphold the traditions of our fathers and we are good to strangers and non indegenes.
So please peoples Bayelsa state has been existing way way long before Timaya and we are not all about militancy and all that negativity.come down to the south for a visit and you'll b glad you did.

10 i have nevers...

hmn...i really am enjoying this my trip to eko.i have never visited the island before so i'm still soaking up all the beauties and intrigues it has to offer.Now i'm truly learning to appreciate all the hullabaloo{hope i got the spelling right} about the city Lagos.oooohh the endless beaches are a must see for everyone and lucky me my vacation home is just right in front of the bar beach!! talk of staring endlessly at the ocean!! with all them lined up vessels beaming their lights and beckoning to you to watch them all night and all them fanatics,and almost crazy people roaming and praying and rolling on the sands over and over again in the day time.Its frightening you know,seeing your fellow men and women and even coppers {yes i saw a copper too} do all that and i wonder what sort of problems life must have dolled out to them to make them go such lengths. na wa oh Life....
Everyday morning what i feel like doing is sit and watch the Atlantic Ocean,and of course my lappy right where it was made to be,on my laps and type away....

2. I have never sailed on a yacht

3. I have never been to a beach { i must go to kuramo and tarkwa and lekki and all them beaches i used to hear as a kid}
4. I have never flown for seven hours straight. {Ok so i never jand before Na crime?}

5. I have never plucked a chicken

6. I have never sang in a choir

7. I have never driven a 4wheel drive

8. I have never been on a reality show

9. I have never designed a website

10. I have never seen 2face perform Live but

My Kodak moment...
wonder what he's thinking bout.

Why do we Blog???

Woh!! chinedu says i need to make money with my blog,like tell people about it so the'll come advertise n all.and i say for crying out loud! i have just one follower!! this blog a'int even known to the world yet! talk more of to make money out of it.
Well i dont know,but these days in Nigeria when Money seems to be the key to all answers evrything one does must have a monetary gain.
So the question is this... Is Our Aim Of Having One's Blog Solely To Make Money? Or is it just a pull every born writer has?? to scribble that is.....Or its simply just keeping up with the jones's. So many many reasons for blogging i should say,but i'll choose the second option,anyday anytime... i blog cos i enjoy doing this, writing that is..
Zhaanna's out!
