Instagram has become an apps that I just love it so much since I had an account and finding great people with wow deliberate pictures everyday just another side of how Instagram works. I can see how people record their daily life with pictures. I think its so amazing how an apps makes you see the borderless world what is happening.
Recently I just love playing instant editing on my iPhone after I capture thing. Like these pics, a small flower I found at floristy, found lovely natural light and captured on different backgrounds ;
Because of Instagram, I could find so many inspirations from amazing people everyday I wake up. If you are in instagram, you can find amazing people that I followed along and sure they’ll give you inspiration to capture beauties everyday.
By the time I reached house yesterday by 6.56 pm I ran to find my chocolate jelly inside fridge that I cooked before went to work. I took a glass, put choco jelly (dice cutted) and ice cubes then I poured soya milk, slices of buttery avocado plus Milo on top. It was my ‘Takjil’, sweet starter before my heavy meal, breaking fasting is always joyful!
I’ve been postponed this post for a week due to the pictures I took from my first visit to Lekki wasn’t interesting enough (+ it was raining!!!). So, I went there again last Sunday to pick MORE souvenirs for friends (and pictures for sure). Oh I’m too sweet ya! :P
Lekki Market is one of the best traditional market where I could find unique Nigerian art pieces for souvenirs in affordable price :P. I spent hours to find something unique (and African!!!) after I struggled to get there. The road is so fuckin’ bad just such an off-road adventure for me (uh).
It was really exciting for me to do this kind of SHOPPING :))) At Lekki I could bargain the things I want, speaking in broken english + local language (+accent) is the key to get affordable price, and I’m good on it. Many things could find easily at Lekki, from wooden African crafts, African clothes, paintings, until jewelries made from bull bones and Ivory (:O don’t buy those Ivory please!!!). African souvenirs are so vibrant, here some snaps from my first and last visit ;
I would like to say SORRY for friends whose name aren’t in my list for these souvenirs, believe me I would happily get more for everyone if I could. Its sad but at least I’ve tried to give some of souvenirs for my new friends that I’ll meet soon in Indonesia. I can’t wait (!!!).
P.S. I will post the souvenirs that I bought from Lekki separately, I haven’t captured them well :)
Just a quick post, first Suhoor today (!!!). Ramadhan is coming, first day of fasting month :) . Here I just want to share quick meal for Suhoor that I cooked one hour ago, this ;
Believe it or not, I just found ‘Kangkung’ or water spinach you called in English two days ago in Lagos, sounds ridiculous huh? Finally I could find and cooked Kangkung, a bit spicy but that was okay. Normally, first suhoor wasn’t easy for me, such a poor night (four hours only for sleeping :(..) and had to cook also after I woke up.
Hmm, I have to say my Mommy is SUPER WOMAN who always cook well, waking up everyone in my house, and after, has to wash dish for suhoor, O boy that isn’t easy at all. I miss Mom! :( anyway, this short post isn’t short anymore if I keep writing.
Bon Ramadhan everyone! Thanks to God for Ramadhan this year!
#SimplyJoy is getting small souvenirs from overseas travelling. First pic is a cute bracelet for my sister that I got from my flatmate last year when he stayed for couple days before heading to Spain, and aw that ceramic mini klompen is so Dutch(!!!).
I’ve been thinking about Amsterdam as my gateway to Europe someday, Oh, Europe, I heart you.
#SimplyJoy is having a delish waffle with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce on Sunday!
