The Masquerader pt 2

Hello people!

Seasons greetings to you all. I hope this Christmas brings you good tidings and all the blessing of love and happiness you could ever seek for.

Ok, now to today's agenda. You all remember the masquerader story right? For those of you who do not or who may not have read it at all, you can follow here to get a heads up on the antecedents leading to the instant read. So I was at the same salon over the weekend and I raised the topic again. Trust me, I have been trying to find out the where about of this lady for a while now, but didn't know how to start asking the people at the salon, without sounding like an "amebo" (gossip).

So finally, I mastered the courage and asked after the lady this time around and the response I got certainly broke my heart. The poor lady is dead. Yes! you heard right... Dead! How that happened, no one knows. As sad as it can be, what the family members planned and did with her corpse is what  made me "bore" (vex) big time!  I was told they went for her corpse and they gave her a grand funeral which attracted a large crowd.

After this story and the appendages attached to it were shared with me, I began to ask myself all sort of questions: Where were all those family members when she was living on the street? Does it mean the family members preferred her corpse more? OMG! How could they even dare to go for her corpse after neglecting her and allowing her die in such a sad way in the first place? Lord have mercy!

Sad way to end a life just because one was being good. May God forgive the husband who is believed to be under a spell and may the Lord forgive the "supposed" friend too and help her repent. May the Lord help her to repent because even though this lady might be dead and gone, even in death, she's got people watching out and praying for justice on her behalf.

Anyway! I wish you all the best of this season and I'd like to share with you, a prayer I got from the net. I pray that you will give to your enemy, forgiveness; to an opponent, tolerance; to a friend, your heart; and to all, charity. I also pray that you give to every child, a good example and to yourself, respect. Have the best of the season and please observe a minute silence for the departed.

Peace... I'm out!

Like I said earlier, I've got so many things to tell you. but for now, let me begin with this one and this is because we are in the Christmas season and probably, a lot of you will be traveling for holidays and what have you. If you plan visiting Ghana, then there is only one place I recommend for you to stay and that place is "Ausbuild Courts".

Trust me on this one people, you will love the place and enjoy your stay as well. Ausbuild courts is situated at East Legon one of the "IT!" places in GH, just like the Victoria Island's, and all the classy places you can think about.

For the soon to be married couples, if you thinking of a place to spend your honeymoon, then there is a package for you too, please see the pictures and know what am talking about. Ausbuild experience will leave memories as wonderful as your wedding day (lol) in your minds.

And if all you want to do is just rest, Ausbuild holds one of the most serene environments that you can imagine; because that is what it was built for.

Believe me! If you make a plan with Ausbuild courts in mind, then you are about to enjoy one of the best fun seasons of your life! Quote me!! I said so!!!

Just a Quick One to Assure You... I'm Still Here!!!

Hello my lovely fam,

I have to once again (through this medium) apologise sincerely for MIA. I will be done with my exams by the 13th of this month and then I will be back in full swing!!! I have got so many things to tell you, some very good, others not so good, an example of the not so very good news is the masquerader story. Yes! I got a part two of "that one" coming up soon.

But for now, I got this one for all of you. Forgetting friends like you is a crime; ignoring you is a shame; liking you is a pleasure; and thinking about you is a necessity. That is why I say that, since 24hours make a lovely day and 7 days make a lovely week, being on blogville and knowing people like you all has made my stay here very lovely and colourful.
Thank you all for the good wishes and kind thoughts you extended to me for my exams and for being there for me always. God bless you! and to my new followers, I take a bow and say a big thank you. I pray you enjoy every bit of your stay in mon ville. lol

Help Please!!!

Hello my people!
I apologise for being MIA for so long. Abeg make una forgive moi you hear! (By the way I am working on a post which will contain English, French and Naija pidgin all in one-So I'm practicing with the opening lines of this Maybe we should all try this. What do you think?). Na my mid-semester exam dey worry me anyhow like say tomorrow no dey. Trust you are all doing great by the grace of Dieu, oui?
I extracted this story from Chioma Toplis (Nollywood actress) page on FB and as always, I'm sharing it on this platform (with a few additions of mine) with the hope that you will share your thoughts and help folks out there deal with really deep life's issues.  
"My name is Sarah, I am a 29 year old girl from Orlu in Imo state. I have been dating a guy for 3 years now. He lost his job before we met and started dating and for this matter, he has been living off me all this while.
Our love was so strong that we were the talk and envy of many who never knew I was the one spending all the money. l have a fixed job while he doesn't, and sometime last year, we both agreed to purchase a car through a mortgage which the company I work with paid for on the arrangement that they will be deducting a certain amount of money from my salary monthly. 
He suggested that we use his name as the official owner of the car which I didn't object to because we were working towards our marriage and since we were going to be married, what was there to have reservations about? Or so I thought.
Three months ago, he proposed for us to conclude wedding arrangements, but I had to decline because I wanted him to get a job first. Also, there was a secret I had been keeping from him for all these years, so I had to confess to him that I had a baby girl when I was in secondary school and that my child has been living with my mother in my hometown. 
Before I could finish sharing this information with him, he got up and shouted at me saying "why didn't tell him all this while?" He walked out on me angrily and has been behaving funny ever since; he won't pick my calls and he has stopped coming to church and anywhere he is certain to meet me. It is so bad now, to the extent that when I go to his house, he refuses to answer the door when I knock, acting like he is not at home, even though I know perfectly well that he is in. 
At this point, I read the hand writing on the wall, that he has walked out of the relationship. It's been three months since we broke up and it feels like I have lost a major project that I invested every other thing which I have laboured for. I have been paying for a car that I no longer enjoy.
Please what do I do? Do I take my car back? I am so confused. Please help!
After reading this, all sort of ideas came running through my little worried head. But I want to know what you think first, I will be back to tell you guys a story.
Peace... I'm out.

I've Got A Question.

Hello Ma Dahlings!
Where did the weekend go? I didn't have enough rest at all this weekend. But I hope and pray to God that this week will be a wonderful one for me and for everyone as well.

The title of the present post has become very necessary because, a cousin of mine called me over the weekend and complained bitterly about something pertaining to her relationship, and my counselor level was at its peak.

Her question was "what do you do if your boyfriends ex is his best friend"? According to her anytime the guy is not with her, he is with his ex, he finds every excuse to be with her and even picks her up from work sometimes, claiming that either her ex's car developed a fault or she needed him to help her out with something.

Also, anytime she asks him what exactly is going on between them, he would answer that there's nothing going on between them, other than friendship, and then assures her of his love. What I asked her to do was to sit him down and have a deep mature chat with him about the situation; and if there is still no improvement about  how much time he spends with her, then she should ask him to choose between she and his ex. Abi?

So I ask, what will you do if your boyfriend/girlfriend's ex  becomes their best friends?

A lovely week is what I wish for You! And You!! And You!!!

Peace... I'm out

Something To Laugh About...

Hello everyone!!
Hope you are all doing fine. I am doing great by the mercies of the most high God. Here is a joke I want to share with you. Please read and enjoy.
One day a lady went into a pharmacy shop, walked right up to the pharmacist, looked straight into his eyes, and said, "I would like to buy some cyanide please". 
When the pharmacist asked her why, the lady replied by saying, "I need it to poison my husband." The pharmacist said 'Lord have mercy! That's against the law! 
"Really?! I don't think so" said the lady. She then reached into her purse and pulled out a picture of her husband in bed with the pharmacist's wife. The pharmacist, shocked and enraged at the same time, said, after staring at the picture for a while "You didn't tell me you had a prescription!!!" lol. Isn't it funny how we change our stands on issues of value when we are the ones directly involved?lol.
I hope the week has been fruitful so far for everyone. Remember, rivers never reverse its flow. So try to live like a river. Forget not your past but focus on your future. Enjoy yourself as the week gets to its end!!! You deserve it.
Peace... I'm out

Hei Blogville!

I startled you with that title right?! Don't mind me jare. Was thinking of a way to get your attention, and I hope I On a more serious note, I wonder where the days are running to. I can't believe it's Friday already!

We are gradually getting close to Christmas and to the end of the year. I remember how I used to lovvee Christmas. When I was a little girl, my mum will buy me new shoes and knee socks that I would wear up to the knee, and almost feel so on top of the world. lol. I miss those good old days mehn...

I hope the year has been eventful so far, even though there's been struggles and ups and downs, I believe the Lord has kept us here for a purpose. Here is a little "something" I want to share with you for the weekend, happy reading...

One day, a rich dad took his son on a trip. He wanted to show him how the poor live. They spent time on the farm of a poor family. On their way home, the man asked his young boy, "Son, did you see how poor they are? What did you learn from our visit? the son answered and said "Dad! We have one dog, they have 4. We have a pool, they have a river. We buy food, they sow. We have walls to protect us and they have friends..."

He went on to say to his dad "Also, we have lanterns at night and they have stars. We have encyclopedias, and they have the bible." Then he concluded by saying "Thank you Dad for making me see how POOR we are."

*Lesson* The wealth we have and the riches we feel all around us is not about money. It's about simplicity and having God in our lives. So, never give up on life even when the going gets tough. Be strong and keep looking up to God. He has never failed me yet and I know He will not fail you either.
This weekend is going to be a long one and that's because Monday is a holiday here in Ghana. Lovely weekend everyone!!!

Peace... I'm out.

Aftermath Of The Rains ...The Travails It Left Behind.

hello people,

I am back again with full force. Even though the floods left us feeling sad and devastated, I know that it is well with us and all the people who were affected either directly or indirectly by this unfortunate incident are doing just fine. Like the great poet J.P Clarke said, one way or another "we are all casualties". We all need to heal, and we all will.

The aftermath of the floods is TERRIBLE. I got to know how bad it was on Sunday when I went to church and saw the way a lot of people were left with virtually nothing because the floods took everything (clothing, household items etc) away, leaving them with nothing.

A story that an old friend of mine in whose compound I used to park my car told me got me crying right in front of him. He said he was fast asleep when all of a sudden, he realized that his bed was turning around. Feeling dizzy, he got up to check what the problem was only to know his room was full of water all the way up to his shoulder level. Poor old man... He was shivering while he was telling me all these, and I couldn't help but shed a tear for him. I am glad he is alive at least because even though a lot of people lost their lives, he is okay.   

In other matters, I am pleased to announce to blogville that I have been able to unravel the anonymous blogger HoneyDame and have come to understand why she was able to break her room mates bed after all with her bakassi!!!lol. For those of you who are finding it difficult to figure out what this is all about, see the story, BOTTOM POWER and everything will become
Mehn.... The babe get enough behind o!!! She is one absolutely amazing African beauty! Even though she warned me that she was going to send me to Afghanistan on exile if I dare disclose her identity, I just can't help but still bring it here for you all to see. watch the picture after the break.

After All Is Said And Done...

Hello everyone,

I had a good weekend and I suppose you all had one too. Anyway, I want to share a little "something" with you today. Please read and answer as many of the questions as you can.

A wise man once said, "when a baby is born, everyone around is happy but the baby cries".

So, I am thinking it should be the other way round whereby when we die, everyone around cries but we will be smiling and happy being in the bosom of Jehovah.

I am inspired to write this post based on my bible study this morning.

After all has been said and done, how are we going to be remembered here on earth? How will our work on earth be measured? Are we going to be remembered with a good or a bad tag?

Life here on earth is a short one and should be lived in such a way that when we are gone, our legacies and foot prints can be followed. I beseech everyone to be conscious about the things we say and do on earth because whether good or bad, God will bring all to judgement.

To live a just and principled life is not easy, but by grace of God, plus our prayers and supplications to Him, we will get through the challenges of the life somehow.

Finally, let us remember that this world is not our home. We have a permanent home which has been prepared for us by our Lord Jesus Christ. So, let us always live our lives in preparation for our biggest day with our God, among the angels and the 24 elders. 

What a great feast that will be! Love you all.

Peace... I'm out.

Dear Blogville of mine!!!

So its Friday already! This is to say a big THANK YOU to all of you for the well wishes and the concern shown to me on my last post. I am grateful and overwhelmed by the love.

I wrote this on my FB wall today and I want to share it with you too, this is from me to all the blog-fam. I love you all... Enjoy the

Even the richest King can't compare to the greatest treasure I have found. He may own everything that I can only dream of. But! He doesn't know what I've got... and that is GOOD friends like you in my life!

Have a lovely weekend.

These Floods Again?!!!

Hello everyone...

Today, I write with a heavy heart. Almost the whole of Accra (the capital of Ghana) is flooded and it is terribly sad.

A lot of people have been rendered homeless, parents are screaming and searching for their lost kids. Read a friends update on FB today and he said the president should call for a state of emergency. Do you agree? Even if he does, will (calling a state of emergency) solve the problem knowing the rains will not stop falling? I think we need a very pro-active government structure all over Africa. A structure that does not have to wait for people to die before decisive actions are taken to deal the menace of floods in our cities. We have ministries and government organisations which are supposed to take care of issues like this. Can we not plan ahead of the next rainy season in order to make sure that the events of this year do not re-occur?

A number of people have been reported dead including this sweet friend of mine on FB...


These are a few pictures I got. Please see and estimate for yourself the amount of damage and loss this flood left behind. Thank you for reading.

NB:- I should have done this post yesterday but my internet was messing up. Thanks to HoneyDame who dropped a mail to check up on me. I'm soo grateful girl... God bless you!

Peace... I'm out.

Saying The Final Goodbye Is a Tough Thing To Do...

Dear Blogville...

A friend told me something yesterday and since then, anytime I think about it, I get misty eyed. He lost his Mum... Just one look at him and you will see a devastated, shattered, lost and an "all alone" person (same way I felt when I lost my Mum some years ago).

Here is a guy who has sacrificed so much in order to save his mother's life (used his school fees to pay for her medical bills; borrowed money from friends and his work place in order to pay medical bills; had to break up with his girlfriend who was constantly complaining he didn't have enough time for her just so he could be there for his mum; had to forgo lectures most times in order to be there for her... I could go on and on and on.

But one thing I do know out of my own experience, is that when everything seems blur and lost, when your soul is so afraid and you think all is lost, that is when you have lean on God totally and completely and He will come in and help you find your way. He has done it for me and I know He will do it for my friend and every other person out there that needs to crutch on a life wire.
Here is wishing him all the strength he needs at this present time of his life. 

Peace... I'm out.

We have Been Called to Finish The Course!!!

So the weekend is over and work resumes with an extra kind of pressure that comes with Mondays. I had a wonderful weekend and I trust you all had the same too.

I am reading a very interesting book right now by Dr.Mensah Otabil (A Popular Pastor in Ghana) titled "Anointed to Start and to finish", got to a part that I am loving so much, so I took the following excerpts from the book to share with you my lovely readers. So as always, please read, enjoy and above all share your views and thoughts.

According to the book, there are four qualities that will help us to stay on course as well as finish the race to receive the desired crown. And these are :
  • Focus: this is the concentration of all one's energies on the most important things in life. at every point, we must decide what the most important project or assignment in our life's are.
  • Endurance: this is also another important requirement for long distance running, because pursuing a good dream requires patience and continues application in order to get the desired results needed.
  • Hope: this is seeing a positive picture of the end result of one's effort. It is the expectation and the anticipation that keeps us going even in the face of adversity
  • the last on the list is determination: this is the will power and the strength of mind that it takes to pursue a dream to the end.
This is the song that a determined heart or person with a lot of determination sings always;
**If I can't fly. I will run, 
If I can't run, I will walk 
If I can't walk, I will crawl. 
whatever it takes, 
I will drag myself across the finish line**

We have all been called to start and to finish a race or a course, it is not enough to lay a foundation and proceed to build on it. It is not enough to start a race well and open a considerable gap over your competitors. It is not enough to go buy foodstuffs, prepare food and place it before you. It is the completion of the building , the finishing of the race or eating of the food that brings ultimate satisfaction.

I pray that our hands will be strong enough to complete the work we have began or will begin and also may our set dreams and visions be accomplished in Jesus name Amen. Thank you for reading...

Peace I'm out

On the day of the baby's funeral, the aunty of the lady crying uncontrollable kept saying, I knew it! I knew It!! The curious relatives then asked her what it was that she knew. In response to their query, she said... I knew it!!! I knew that "CHINA PRODUCTS" do not last! lol. It's just a joke o!!! Please if you must site this joke, tell them it is a joke o! i still would like to travel to China one of these days. lol

We Run Things Part 1 - Women are not as Foolish as men think

Hey Blogville!

I have been taking stock of a few stories that catch my attention and compiling them to expose in my little way, the realities of our lives, both the ones that make you laugh and the ones that make you cry; plus the ones like the instant case, which show that when it comes to "running things", the women... Yes the women take the front Guys, you are free to bring on a debate about this to the platform (if you

There was a man, who had worked all his life, saved all the money he could, but still was a real miser of a man. 

Just before he died, he said to his wife...'When I die, I want you to take all my money and put it in the casket with me. I want to take my money to the afterlife with me.' (can you imagine!!!) He got his wife to promise him with all of her heart, that when he dies, she would put all of the money he ever made into his casket. But before you sit and wonder what kind of woman would be foolish enough to make such a promise, just read through to the very last part of the story.
When he died, he was stretched out in a casket. His wife was sitting there - dressed in black, and her best friend was sitting next to her to offer the necessary consolation. When they finished the ceremony, and just before the undertakers got ready to close the casket, the wife said, 'Wait just a moment!' She had a small metal box with her; she came over with the box and put it in the casket. Then the undertakers locked the casket down and they rolled it away.
So her friend said, 'Girl, I know you were not foolish enough to put all that money in there with your husband.' The loyal wife replied,
'Listen, I'm a Christian; I cannot go back on my word... I promised him that I was going to put his money into his casket and bury him with it.'
You mean to tell me you put all that money in the casket with him!?!?!?' Her friend asked in absolute bewilderment.

'I sure did' said the wife. 'I got it all together, put it into my account, and wrote him a cheque...
If he can cash it, then he can spend it. Now isn't that just a wise woman? lol
From all my ladies to our "men", just want you to know that 'we run "things", we do not allow "things" to run us" lol.

Gosh!! I am so tired, cant wait for the weekend to be here.
cheers everyone. By the way, this is not my story. It is one of the stories I am compiling for this series. A friend emailed it to me, and I thought I could share the elating feeling it gave me with you, by getting you to read it here as well. I just edited it a little to suit the present
Peace... I'm out.
