Restaurant Review: Insignia Restaurant Lagos

Hey Guys,

So I went to Insignia the day I picked up my TV. My sister was going back to school the next day and we were eager to try out the restaurant we missed out on this day.

Weekend Gist: Sandwiches, Strategy & Solitude

Hey Guys

How has your week been?

How was your weekend? Mine was really restful, the most quiet weekend I've had in a while.

I wasn't feeling too strong after work on friday and the traffic was terrible so I met up with my dad who wasn't far from the office and went home in his car so I didn't have to drive. Picked up my car the next day and I'm glad I did that because the traffic when I left work was Terrible. Lagos traffic can be so unpredictable sometimes but I like to plan my days so I spend as little time in traffic as possible.

I spent Saturday at home, watched 2 movies and bonded with my family. I've been thinking about my life and what I want to achieve this year so I made some decisions which would help me achieve certain goals.

On Sunday, I went to church then came home and read a book, I've finished 4 books from this stack :)

I took no pictures this weekend so I'm going to share the pictures I took on Thursday. After reading Berry's post on the Honey Pepper Chicken Sandwich, I was eager to try it.

Tuke's Trips: Road to China via Amsterdam

Hey Guys,

Happy Monday :)

So I've mentioned so many times on the blog that I will write about China but after the comments on this post, I decided to start the series this month.

I went to China in the Summer of 2012 and it was one of the best experiences of my life. Prior to that the only countries I had visited were the UK, Ghana, America and Canada. The most adventurous thing I had done was the Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme where I climbed hills, walked 20 km's each day, slept in tents, didn't shower, drank water from a stream, etc. D of E was tougher but going to China was another level of adventure.

I was really scared to go. I remember the night before I left Nottingham to go to the airport, I was having second thoughts. I was nervous, I was scared but deep deep deep down I was excited. I was packing with my friend, Ife & he said if God didn't want me to go or if he thought I would be harmed in any way, I wouldn't have gotten the scholarship. That sort of calmed me down and I left Nottingham feeling a bit better.

Restaurant Review: Casper and Gambini's Lagos

Hi Guy!

Hope your week is going well!

One thing I've learned this week is that editing pictures when hungry is not a good idea. Anyways, remember how I mentioned that the Memkoh Meetup was at Casper and Gambini's, this is my review of it.

I got there at the nick of time as the Creative Cool kids were about to dig into their dishes.

I won a 32 Inch Smart TV

Hey Guys!

I'm writing out this blogpost with sooo much joy in my heart. I won a 32 Inch Smart TV because I watched a Movie!!!!

I'm not sure if I've mentioned it on the blog before but I don't really watch TV series. The only shows I've actually followed are Gidi Up, Shuga, Dowry, Skinny Girl in Transit and I watched Quantico at my friends house last year. I watched New Girl and 2 Broke Girls when I was in my final year of Uni though, it helped with the pain of Dissertation :)
