Award for Stylish and Versatile Bloggers

I am indeed overgasted and flabberwhelmed (ok you can switch the words before you tear the dictionary apart) at this nominations. Special thanks to NAIJAMUM, WILD BOY , PRISM and TEGA for finding me worthy; this for me, is a challenge to be more committed to blogging.

So back to the awards, the rules are as follows:
1. Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them in your post.
2. Tell us 7 things about yourself.
3. Award 15 other bloggers.
4. Contact these bloggers and let them know they have won

Here are 7 random things about me:

1.    I play the Cello and hope to learn to play saxophone and clarinet soon.

2.    I've never suffered stage fright in my entire life, I had my first stage performance at age 5, in fact, I think I was born for public speaking.

However, Acute Shy Mode is activated when I'm on a date (especially first dates). I don’t know how or why it happens, I just feel so uncomfortable when I have to eat with someone staring.

3.    I’d rather stay home gisting with my family and watching movies than move about in the blazing sun. Hence, I try to plan my itinerary well so I can clear out all outings in one day.

4.    I really do not know which I love more – politics or sports. I’m almost sure that at some point in future, I’ll venture into politics, most probably by appointment.

5.    I plan on visiting all the continents. Deep down inside, I’m an aspiring globe-trotter.

6.    My favourite food is plantain (does that even make sense?) Plantain is the only thing I can eat and not get tired. And yes, I eat it with virtually any and everything – rice, beans, porridge, eba, bread... yes Bread!

I eat it boiled, fried, roasted as well as mashed and baked( you’ll need pepper, eggs, etc). My mum has given up, trying to change me is a waste of time... I love me some plantain. Yummy!

7.    I totally believe in love...yes LOVE! It’s soooo simple, there’s someone out there for everyone, you just need to find him/her to know what I’m talking about. Did I mention that I like them tall? Ahhh... I'm about 5'8
in my stilettos and thus far I've attracted only 5'10 or taller brothers... but somehow I keep having this feeling I'm going to end up with a dude my height or inches shorter. Weird hehn?!

I hereby tag:

5. Iani

6. Lara

9. Af
10. Doll
11. Qmoney
14. Miss A

i love plantain too but I have never tried it with anything else asides from Rice and Beans, I used to think Plantain was for garnishing and not as a major meal. Could it be eaten alone?
I like your blog.


Myne Whitman said...

To the first date shyness, why not pretend you're performing? :) I love plantain too, and travelling! hope to get a chance at all the continents too. Thanks for sharing with us.

Tamunoibifiri Mobolaji-Kamson said...

Really plantain and bread OMG...Lmao thank you for nominating me.

P.E.T. Projects said...

I see y'all are surprised, but really, you should try giving ur delicacies the plantain feeling... hmmmm.

@NG - Nope, i've never being a tomboy.

@Blessing, plantain and bread is just like making sandwich, u decide wot goes in, and for me, plantain makes the list complete.

@T.Notes and Who am I - i set out to learn violin/viola, unfortunately i had toothache at the time and was kicked to cello class. Now I love the instrument though my friends dub it the 'old woman's companion'

@Naijamum and Os - i just tried it once and my tastebud was never the same again.

@LG, before i open my eyes, go home and get it.

@Anonymous Siji - there's really no rule as to how food should be combined. You may not like plantain+bread combo but trust me, plantain as a main course is superb. try it with cornedbeef sauce and thank me later.

@Myne, im already compiling a list of places to visit, maybe i'll do a post on that soon...

@Ibifiri, u're welcome.

I enjoyed reading this. Your love of plantain is one another level o. It's cool that you can play the cello. How did you learn?

Natural Nigerian said...

I am with you on going to all continents. However, I wish I could close my eyes and magically appear there. I am not a fan of airports and air travel.

I see you disabled comments on your other post so I am leaving a comment here: I remember January 27every year. I am glad to see that someone else does too.
