TGIFridays Experience and 100th Post Giveaway

Hello my people, how did your weekend go? I am still at Minna, the hotel I stay at has one wireless connection that is as slow as a snail, but it is better than nothing. Can you imagine,  I fell ill at Minna, but I am better now. So I thought to tell a story with the pictures I took at TGIFridays in Lakeside

The served us the the appetizer which was fried chicken and Jack Daniels sauce. All these British food sha, it tasted more like Akara to me. After tasting part of it, I decide to leave my stomach open for better things

One thing about TGIFridays is their big plates. When the main course came, I cleared the large plate in no time. I had chips, onion rings, pork ribs, large prawns, etc, all in one plate. Everyone was surprised at how I cleared the whole thing.

Next came a  very very very large tumbler of Iced cream. The picture of that have other people in it, so I did not post it. OH and I cleared that one together.

After thar was this hot cale with ice cream on it. I was worried I wouldn't be able to finish it because by this time, I was already full and OH was reluctant in helping me out. So I decided to take it as a challenge.

Notice how the cake has started reducing...

I finally did the deed

The shout of victory. I finished it all, except the akara-tasting chicken. Needless to say, I am still suffering the consequences of indigestion till now. Na my okukokoro cause am.

Ok peeps, there are more pictures, but I did not want to overload you with them.

I have finally decided what to do for my 100th post. Please, ask me whatever question you want and I will answer them all. The person whose question I am most impressed with will get Myne's novel. A Love Rekindled. I kept it for this purpose.

So go on with the comments on the pictures and ask your questions right away.

    @ kitkat: Did you read the blog at all or you just assumed I took these pictures in Minna? Sorry to burst your bubbles, but I don't think Minna is this much fun. I am at a client site in Minna, working all day. I took these pictures in Lakeside in London, like I mentioned in the post

    2C: How do you hold yourself accountable for your poor decisions?

    2D: Are you able to forgive yourself your humanness and move forward without beating up yourself and getting stuck in the what should have been, if only I had?

    2E: How do you celebrate you, your uniqueness and autenthicity?

    2F: How do you stay motivated, hopeful and faithful to you, your thoughts, beliefs and ideals?

    Part 3:
    If the answer is no.....

    3B: Why not?

    3C: What is preventing your from loving yourself completely?

    3C.1: Are the influences external that prevents you from loving self?

    3C.2: Are they internal?

    3D: What do you plan to do about it?

    3E: How do you plan to teach yourself how to love yourself as you are and understand that you are enough?

    I would love to read your thoughts on my questions.

  27. ilola! How did I choose to visit you on THIS day of ALL days. You are talking about AND showing fotos of Food!!!!! OK, there 'almost' goes my detox!!!!! Lol!

    It was fun being here though. Bless you!

  28. Looking forward to your 100 Post o. Maybe this is my opportunity to read Myne's book at last.

    For one thing, I am happy you are a fellow gunner. That your T-shirt makes serious sense! #Gunners4life

    Wait o... you will soon increase in size with the way you eat o... gently Tell me about slow internet in Nigeria.. I was there last year July and omg! It is well. I won't say too much.

    My Question: Would you say you have identified your purpose/Assignment in life? If so, what is it?

    - LDP

  29. ROFL, AuntyLola...u de chop o!!!
    Anyway, offences, I think the topping on the cake is custard cream not "ice cream".
    Seriously, if I had eaten all that I would be ROFC or ROFS(rolling on floor crying or screaming).

    Happy 100th Bloggiversary; as u don open gate for question some people have decided to set 3hr exam "answer all" questions with sub-questions & all (only thing missing is the marks attached per question). It's allowed anyway...

    I'm not the very nosy type so my own question is simple, short, straightforward and related to the ongoing blog:

    What happened in the toilet the next day?

  30. That dessert ehn...*licks lips*. I love the photo story by the way:)

  31. @ DesperateNaijawoman: Please, I am so sorry. forgive me. I have been reasing your posts and I know you are currently detoxing. Only for me to come and 'derail' you. Please, don't allow this stop you from coming back o.

    @ LDP: Nice, so you are a gunner. Truth is I am not a fan of any club, but my fiancee got me this because he is an arsenal fan. Don't worry, I am not increasing in any size, cos I don't eat a lot

    @ Anonymous: The topping is not custard cream. Are you the one that ate it? If I catch you ehn!!!
    You are indeed not the nosy type. lol

    @ koinonia: Thanks so much. Please, don't bite your lips o

  32. That desert looks yummy!

    Your shirt is distracting by the way lol

    (proud Manchester Utd supporter)


  33. I want some of the dessert, it must have been good. I love this post, hilarious!

  34. Those akara tasting (lol) chicken bits really tasted nice. these pics are hilarious.. you just kept at it, u dey try o.. the desert, oooo so yummy. thumbs up, so funny.

  35. The plates are really LARGE!! nice pictures...

  36. hmmmnnnnnn....when i see a pregnant woman,I know how large a woman's stomach can be,you really threw caution though the window O!I wonder what the melodic musician Bright Chimezie would have sang this time? "A black girl wey dey here, she's committing...."lol...One thing is very clear to me, You have a very healthy appetite O!

    my question: What other thing would you do for a living besides writing and blogging?
