It’s Ivanov’s bithday today



My intention was to post something else, something that had to do with Fun In Health on Random mondays but today is my brother’s birthday. He posts his crazy thoughts HERE

Happy birthday brova

I remember when we were young and you would hold my hands as a big brother and lead me to school letting me find my way to class while you found yours…

when we were about to go home, it was the same thing

It’s like you were proud to hold me and claim me as your sister. i felt like i could look for trouble anyway and i would come reporting to you.

even the times we were meant to go home immediately, you would take me to your friends house to keep me seated while you played Nintendo or whatever the games were those days.

our older brother tried playing ten ten with me since i had no girl to call my sister while growing up, and he even taught me..”my mother told me” by clapping our hands together

But you were interested in one game or the other.

But i still love you…, ive tried not to, most especially when i feel you did me wrong so many times but i do, i really do.

and sometimes, gosh!! you could be so annoying!!!!


and so here’s to you ivanov!!..

For the times when we went over to the movies and you had to hold me while you ran so that i keep up with you

we ran either because we were late to the movies or we were out late.

For the times you stood up for me

For the times we cried together,

For the times you held me when i cried and told me it’s okay

For the times i couldn’t wait to see you whenever you were shipped back from kankon badagry

that was so many years ago….i can remember it so

For the fights we had and reconciled

for the ‘boyish’ stunts we pulled

For the songs we crooned together late at night and recorded just to have a good laugh. that tape recorder didnt last long at all..hehe..we spoilt it..agbalagba like us

For our “code”look#wink

for the times we played video games or i watched you play

for not letting me have my way most times..#i hate that, i really do#

Happy birthday to you Darren ivanov..who bares that name apart from a weirdo like you huh? muah!!!!!


P.S: after all this psyching, i hope i get a free pass for iron man 3 oo..wink#

Episode 3 of Chocolates and Sushi comes up Wednesday, stay tuned


Have Women turned to Commercial Products?




This isn’t a women’s day Post, Just so you know. the picture caught my attention.

This topic was inspired by a response I gave to a question when asked. Though I cant remember fully well what I was asked, my response I can remember quite clearly

Why should I expose any form of restricted flesh when I’m not selling anything. My friend burst into laughter at such a response. Though it was funny to the both of us at that time, it’s so true. Very true

Why wear a very revealing dress that is bound to show the secret parts of your body if you’re not selling anything. It’s a question we should ask ourselves as Women cos I do ask myself this question when it pops in.

Isn’t it disturbing if a full grown woman of age dresses up and decides to expose her breasts or reveal her backside? Why would you do that? It amazes me!! I just can’t comprehend the kind of Lust that the person is battling with if such a person is Sane. People say it’s to show endowment, and I’m like WTH?!! Seriously?!! Endowment for sale or for ogling so that the unfortunate man can fantasize and fulfill both your lusts?

Is there any reason why the tag, ‘Dress the way you want to be addressed’’ was coined sometime ago?

These days, it’s a risk allowing your child to sit before the Cable twenty four seven and don’t even bother asking “what about Local TV…, that one isn’t any better. Infact, I don’t even know which is worse in delivering unwanted messages to ourselves and our kids.

Music videos shown on  TV these days is an eyesore. Apart from the noise that springs out from such artistes who claim to be “in their right minds” or rather, claim to be of age, I find it disturbing that some are not even intelligent enough to compose Lyrics that will motivate or inspire or speak sincerely about their Love for a woman.

And then, there’s the unmasking of Video Vixens. I heard that’s what they’re called these days. Girls who want to feature in music videos and deem it fit to move shamelessly to songs rendered by irresponsible artistes who don’t even think of the coming generation.

They get paid no doubt, it’s a job now. And you let this “strange” man touch you without regard for Who You really are inside. Just because he says you have a body of a goddess doesn’t mean He’s telling the truth.

Who knows, a dozen others have been told the same lies. A child will do anything to get his Candy, so will a man who’s just interested in your body and in the money he’s bound to make just by putting yourself out there shamelessly.

And so, with the look of things, I see women are being seen as “Commercial Products.’’ Some people even go far by saying, What else are we useful for apart from sex and seduction.

I ask you this question young woman, Is that all you were made for? Are you not so much more than Sex and Seduction? Are you not a woman of integrity? Or would you rather be a commercial product?

Forget the story of a man marrying you if you keep your virtue or dignity, WHAT ABOUT YOU!! What do you want to achieve in Life? Do you think Life is all about shaking your “ass and boobs’’ for the screen? Don’t you want to be remembered for inspiring and motivating young girls like yourself in life? Don’t you want to be one of the greatest women who ever existed before God and man?

Or rather, you want to remain at the Auction room, where people pay a price for you and you return you so that another person can use again?

I believe God created us for so much more and I need not start giving examples before my point is passed across.

I refuse to be a commercial product. But I will stand against verbal abuse on women and young ladies out there who haven’t realized their worth yet or are too blind to see the treasure God has deposited inside them.

And I plead to women myself not excluded. “Do not expose anything you’re not selling.’’ Because revealing it only makes you feel insecure, cheaper and “not good enough’’

If anyone doesn’t like you that way, then “adios’ to the person. Never Let anyone make you compromise yourself.

YOU are NOT a COMMERCIAL PRODUCT!! Never Let anyone make you ‘that”

Don’t make yourself that either..

Let us all have a great Monday with that at the back of our minds..

Much love!!!xo
