11 Randoms... 
  1. I am a book freak. My favorite bookshop is kinokuniya in Dubai… it is the biggest bookstore I’ve ever been to. I daydream about that wonderland.
  2. I always have a note pad with me… always.
  3. I am a mango freak. Between mango and chocolate, I’d pick mango.
  4. Night time is my rise time… the juices flow and I tend to process thoughts well in the AM's.
  5.  I love to pamper myself... I never miss an opportunity to go all out at the spa. If i don't do me good, i can't expect anyone else to treat me that way. I do me good, you do me better and life's sweet.
  6. I love Shirley Temple... I can't seem to accept that she became an adult... I am sad, she should have remained sweet little Shirley all her days.
  7. I have been different sizes in my short life… I have been a size 14 and I am currently a size 8. Don’t ask.(But I'll still explain sha) We have unique body experiences in my family, my mum, aunts and my sisters have gone through the same(it's kind of cool though). People who knew me seven years ago still ask what I did to loose the weight, I’m tired of telling them how unique my family genes are… if I was allowed to lie, I’d make concoctions and sell to them and get rich off those who hound me. If they complain it doesn’t work, I’ll tell them to drink their urine or mine for an immediate result… and if they still complain, I’ll tell them “it’s probably my genes" like I've been trying to tell them since forever.
 
  1. I’m looking forward to skydiving… I don’t know how I’ll stomach it, but I know I would put up a nice post telling you about my experience…. It may be one or ten years from now, but it’s got to be done. 
  2. In my head, C.S Lewis and I are best friends. We dine and share ideas... he thinks i'm brilliant. I think he's brilliant too. We're birds of a feather :p
  3.  I love Polo... Thanks to watching princess daisy and pretty woman back in the day. I want to learn how to ride, and maybe just maybe be able to stick and ball (i don't have the stamina for the actual game)
  4.  I have pranced around poolsides but i can't swim... that's something i hope to conquer soon. I must make good use of the beach and hotel pools at my honeymoon :|

  Why he loves us so much.

2.      What is your most embarrassing moment?
Lets see... has your car ever stopped on Ozumba Mbadiwe during rush hour? Back when the road was under construction, just in front of 1004, the car decided to call it quits… apparently the fuel gauge wasn’t functioning well and the fuel tank was empty. Luckily my Brother-in-law saved my sister and i from that show of shame. I'm sure there have been moments, i just can't seem to think one up.

Now that's real food for thought...

Ehhhh… I’m conscious when I dress up… does that count?

Graduation Song by Vitamin C... we sang it on the eve of our graduation from secondary school. We hugged each other and shed a few tears.

So no, I wouldn’t change anything. Thankful for the way I am… Bruno Mars wouldn't have to convince me that I’m amazing just the way I am.

  1. Three words that you use to describe yourself

 I love children… I can't even begin to express myself.
