OUT AND ABOUT: My Experience at #EatDrinkFestival

Hey Tribe,

This is different from the usual but I thought it’d be nice to relive this fun experience. The Christmas season has so many events, it is so crazy. Nigerians are so amazing! Everybody complains that they don’t have money, but malls, markets and shows are filled. At the end of the day, God provides and we just want to be happy.

So, I like food, a lot. It may not show, but I really do.

As an avid reader of Eat.Drink.Lagos (EDL), I was so happy and so proud when Nosa and Folly, who run EDL, started the #EatDrinkFestival. (lets call it EDF). So far, I have been able to attend the two editions in 2016- Summer (July) and Christmas (December).

I am so sorry, I do not have a lot of pictures to prove my point and these ones are not the best, biko manage, your girl is learning.

#EatDrinkFestival 2.0 (The Summer Edition )

It took place in Fantasyland, Ikoyi on July 17, 2016. It was quite organized and had 31 food vendors. I saw a lot of people from secondary school I had not seen in years and a lot of bloggers (including Nosa and Folly) in the flesh. It was beyond super cool! Earlier in the day, there were just some people eating and taking pictures, but as the day rolled by, it just became full of people and there was literally no space to walk and people started smoking and extra-drinking. Parking was just…ugggh, and cost us 500 Naira. There were so many people, and more were coming. The venue was past capacity. At around past 5pm, my friends and I left. Through it all, it was a fun experience.

2016: A YEAR OF EMOTIONS

 HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

My previous post received so much love, I was honestly so overwhelmed. Thank you so much to everyone who read, liked, commented or shared. God bless you immensely. It means so much to me.

This period is usually one of reflection, remembrance and resolution. I believe it is ultimately important to do this, as it breathes in a new life to your already beautiful self to make you more radiant.

P.S. I still have no idea what I am doing or what exactly this blog is to me, but I just know what God has in store for me through this blog, but I can feel within myself that I ought to do this and I absolutely love it.

As the title says, 2016 was a year of discovery, within myself. I got in touch with my emotional being more than ever, and thinking about it makes me realize that I would not have had it any other way.

I have learnt so much and became so much than I ever have. I hope to write about this in detail eventually. Please sit tight, this would be a long one. I know these might be cliche, but take it from an average Nigerian girl, they are actually true. Some of the major lessons I learnt and I know would be useful in 2017 include;Read More »
