AUTHENTIC URHOBO UKODO RECIPE - YAM/PLANTAIN PEPPER SOUP POTTAGE

Small small I am beginning to unleash my Niger-Delta Recipes...I don't know why it took this long. Today's recipe is called Ukodo in Delta : simply yam and unripe plantain pepper soup porridge. Sometimes I add the unripe plantain, other times I don't. It's delicious either way! I 100% percent believe that the most original pepper soup recipe and ingredients come from Delta, if you've not tasted any from that area then  you should. Authentic 100% ! Una know say I be areaaaaaaaaa!

MONDAY CHIT-CHAT : BIRTHDAY BABE!


Good Morning my beautiful blog family! How are you doing??? I’m very very well! Yesterday was my birthday! Wooooohoooo! I’ve been making noise about this birthday sinceeeee and confused about what I was going to do: I had so many ideas but in the end, I believe God’s will prevailed! LOL. Before I continue…for those who are new, the 1st to leave a meaningful comment wins airtime recharge from me! 

WITH 30MB DATA LEFT ON MY MOBILE DEVICE I’M STILL KING OF PALMCHAT

To stay social online, you need Internet data; the less data you have, the less ‘social’ and interactive you get. Take this instance, you just requested for your internet data statement and…beep! Your automated statement reads: Bundle: 250Mb left, you’ll probably go ‘yippee’ and step up on your selfie sharing and downloading mode.

How about if your data balance read: 50MB left…oops! Something a little less ‘social’ stirs in your bowel and that’s called survival instincts!

Busted!

Now you wish social platforms don’t consume your data all-too-quickly. You are probably not on Palmchat-yep, you’re not a Palmchatter. On the Palmchat platform you will chat more for less…I mean 30MB data on your mobile device is just good enough. 

Palmchat voice messaging is the trick

Some people have time to prepare for their honeymoon, I tried to prepare sha (so disorganized)...we were still snoring from the wedding a day before and forgot that we needed to pack/travel so I ended up with a lot of irrelevant stuff that I managed to cram inside my box within 3 hours.

BLOGBETTER: HOW MUCH SHOULD YOU CHARGE AS A BLOGGER?

Hello my fellow bloggers! Ah, I’m back to being a good girl and today I want us to share with each other. I don’t have all the answers, just sharing my opinion. I was asked a few days ago “How much should bloggers charge for ads”? and frankly that was not the first time I was being asked that question but before I give my own opinion on how much bloggers should charge I would like to answer other questions:

ON REPEAT: JESU N'ABBA -BENITA OKOJIE

I think I'll add a new segment to my blog...(ON REPEAT) I love music and when I love a song it's on repeat till the artist starts coughing wherever they are. That's what's going on with me and this Benita's song right now. The song was released about 4 months ago so I'm late to the party but woreva!

WHY THERE WAS NO MONDAY CHIT-CHAT

Seriously I was just going to do Ogboju and not post anything, no chit-chat, no explanation and just pretend nothing happened but since yesterday I've been getting so many messages, "Sisi where is Monday Chit-Chat?". Oh dear....this ogboju will not werk. Plus I've been having weird dreams. LOL

Ehn, see, it's nothing serious. It's just that I was cooking and eating and cooking and eating since friday and before I knew it was Monday morning and I screamed at Bobo "Yomi, no Monday Chit-Chat!...LOL. O tun mo si, I was a lazy blogger all weekend, I went nowhere, did nothing and I did not have the liver to come and tell you that... I'm sorry *stares at feet*

We all have those weekends abi? But this weekend there'll be activity because I have plans *rubs hands together in glee*....and it's my birthday this sunday (19th)! You see I was asking what I should do that weekend because its a big birthday...still nothing comes to mind so I think I'll just make sure I do no house work that day and go out for lunch/dinner (Bobo take note). I expect cake too! I did want to visit an orphanage...I will but maybe not on that day.

I'm expecting presents from you, you want my address? You can make up for not sending me wedding presents. LOL. Last year I think I wrote a birthday wishlist. I got almost everything on that list except the Range Rover Sport, Baba God do it for your daughter! See last year's list HERE  .  So in the absence of a wishlist I'll request for prayers...I still need prayers. A simple "God Bless Sisi Yemmie and Bobo Yomi" will do a lot in my life because you know God's blessings are not limited to Range Rovers....Halleluyah???

Do I share a birthday with any of my readers or your sister/brother/dad/mom/boyfriend/child? How was your weekend? LOL (igbayi laaro)

"A MAN WITH AN ERECTION HAS NO SENSE" TRUE/FALSE

Ok, so me I jejely going through some blog comments on recent divorces in the Nollywood Industry  and you know how comments can be: some are off point, while some just expand the topic at hand but they all centered around cheating. The first comment I read that drew me back was:

"A man with an erection has no sense" and the context in which it was written was this: "if a man wants to have sex he can do it with whoever, whenever and wherever" Is this true? I don't agree, it makes men look like dogs that have no brain or self control like didirin. Haba. Men, make una talk oh! Defend yourselves. I did a post on Lies Women Believe About Men last year. Check it out HERE

The second comment was directly about husband snatching. "Men are not property! No one can ‘steal’ your husband without his consent so if your hubby is nicked from you then the blame lies with him not the woman! "

YORUBA ROMANCE- A STAGE PLAY! (EVERY SATURDAY THIS OCTOBER)

From the Producers of “The Wives“ (which was amazing by the way!) and the Artistic Director of the British Council’s Lagos Theatre Festival comes another wonderful production of the play called YORUBA ROMANCE every Sunday in October at Terrakulture. This epic comedy is about a Marriage proposal gone wrong

Ladoja wants to marry Ynneka a.k.a Nneka, Chief Evan's daughter! His attempt to propose is met with an unexpected response about who owns what lands and horses!

Find out how the proposal went in this hilarious comedy "Yoruba Romance"

Mr. Terrence, writer of the play has said the play is an adaptation of a Marriage Proposal, the 17th century Russian play by Anton Chekhov, a is a hilarious comedy about the age-old mating ritual between man and woman.

According to him, the play employs the use of different kinds of humor to explore some of the more deep-seated prejudices we have concerning inter-tribal relationships
