To the Children, then and now...

Its Children’s day and WE, the children are excited!  Yay! :)
This BB message below has been circulating since the crack of dawn today.

To all of us who ate Nasco wafers, Okin biscuit, Go-Go and M&K. Who drank Tandi and green sands. Who knew when eleganza biro was sold for less than #1.00 and Pepsi for #1.50. Who did the flex and butterfly dance, watched Cadbury breakfast show and sat anxiously by our TV sets at 4pm for Voltron, defender of the universe.  I say, Happy Children’s Day!!!  And to those who didn’t enjoy these simple pleasures, please meet me at 6:30pm for tales by moonlight! :) Lol

If you remember these things, then you must have grown up in Nigeria at around the same time I did! LOL. Is it fun to be grown? Or would you rather turn back the hands of the clock?

Well, as much as those times were fun and filled with reckless abandon, life has happened and we’re running with it. In fact we’ve run so fast that some of us now have children of our own! 

So, to everyone in my generation (you’re probably wondering how old I am, well, do the math :)) who now has one or two little ones, congratulations and happy Children’s day! Don’t forget to do all you can to partner with God to give your children the best that they truly deserve.

Speaking of which, I am now a proud aunt of a beautiful niece! Yippee!
My sister dropped a sweet little angel last week and it’s her first Children’s day!
Special congratulations to Little 'Sope. 
I promise I’ll be a great aunt! :)

Cheers people and Happy Children’s day to all the children of the world!

Klorofyl and my 'To Watch' list

Hi People. 

Trust y'all doing great and the year is shaping up nicely.
I think I'm blocked right now cos I sit up at night and stare at the laptop or chew my pen and can't write a thing.
I have these images in my head but I haven't been able to put them into words.
So I guess I've taken a break.
Anyway, I wanted to share some things with you.
I love the videos below. There're just some fave things I like to watch.
Thought I'd share.

And yes, there's this magazine I came across, by a group of young people.
 It's called Klorofyl and it's really great.

"Klorofyl is a literary and graphic art and lifestyle magazine with African, Urban and Christian Influences. It is compiled by a diverse group from 5 African Countries working closely via the internet, specially crafted for the discerning, and offered online."

There's a link down here some where.
You can download it for free.
You'll definitely be impressed.
Plus they're calling for submissions for their next issue.
So if you're interested, check them out.
(Oops I hear submissions close on the 10th of May which is tomorrow.
Try though.)


TY Bello, The Future

Mayowa Adenrele, Polongo

 Why Did I get married? (Stage, One of many parts on Youtube)
(Just found it, I'd only seen the movie. It's Hilarious too)
