Family time!!

As you may know, travelling to your home country always implies spending quality time with family members, so my vacation wasn’t all about tourism and discovery.

Now that am married, the family has grown from just my extended family to my husband’s extended family. What a joy to know, love and be loved by so many people. That being said, I did my best to visit several family members on both sides. As much as I wanted to spend time with everyone, I was limited by time and people’s availabilities.

Throughout all my visits, a number of them stood out to me, mainly because of the conversations and advice I received. An example is my Husband’s grand mother/ namesake who is so eager to have my husband and I be together (my husband and I were still living separately), as well as one of my uncles who didn’t stop asking the question about when we will start enjoying married life. Now we are finally together.

God is indeed faithful. I equally enjoyed spending time with family because of the good food I ate, although some of it gave me running stomach (Lol).

It’s always fun seeing and spending time with family after a long period of time, so I am grateful to God for the opportunity everyday. I pray to spend some more quality time with them in the future.

Now stay tuned for the next episode of my 25 days adventure.

Today is a celebration of Women’s day, so I choose to celebrate you; women today and forever.

I applaud you for your strength;

I applaud you for your childbirth;
I applaud you for your faith.

I encourage you to broaden your sight;
I encourage you to stand for your right;
I encourage you to not abandon the fight;
I encourage you to continue in this light.

Go forth and fulfill your mission;
Go forth and broaden your comprehension;
Go forth and enhance your sense of compassion;
Go forth and run with the vision.

Let’s stand together;
Let’s become tender;
Let’s lean on each other;
Let’s trust & become sisters.

May we, all women learn and decide to live fulfilled lives and not be scared to take action. We (you) need to take that leap of faith today.

Be blessed!

Ebogo’s visit: The official launch of my adventure

Life has been busy lately, my apologizes for the delayed posting. However, like the saying goes, it’s better late than never, so here is the next episode of my 25 days aventure.

My holidays were officially getting started. Hahahh, the main reason being that I wanted to travel and discover the country. We visited numerous cities and places I hadn’t been to, and oh boy… it was so worth the effort, time and money.

We visited an attractive touristic site in a village called Ebogo located in the Centre region of Cameroon. From the site’s location and activities, the atmosphere, the food, the people’s hospitality to our discoveries, I am happy to say that our stay was very relaxing, enjoyable and memorable.

So what did we end up doing? Walking, chatting and connecting with one another far away from family, friends and the world. I say far away because there was no network/internet at the site. It’s all peace and tranquility from day one till the last day.

This being said, the very special
activity we did was canoeing on river Nyong, one of the largest rivers in the Centre. It was an amazing aventure, in the course of which our tour guide narrated stories about river Nyong and eventually took us on a mini hike in the forest. We discovered that the Touristic site houses several valuable national assets, such as the largest tree (The Kossipo) in Africa, also tagged as one of the oldest in the world (more than 1200 years). I couldn’t believe my eyes, but yet it seems to be true, to the extent where the tree is protected by the ministry as a valuable treasure.

To conclude, this three day touristic discovery was very refreshing to my soul, mind, body and relationship (it strengthened our bond). I entice you to visit the site whenever you get a chance.


Now stay tuned for the next episode of my 25 days adventure.

Officially out of the 5s and into the 6s!

As mentioned in my previous blog post, I hope you enjoy this special series of 10 episodes from my 25 days journey.

This day was exceptional because my Dad turned 60. We celebrated in style at his workplace. After cutting the cake, I gave him a birthday gift on behalf of all his children. You know what? The gift was something he actually wanted but was dissuaded from purchasing by his own boys. You see, my brothers are mischievous, hahaha!

Dad loved his gift and also enjoyed the celebration. It was a great honour to celebrate Dad’s birthday and witness all the good things that the Lord has done in his life. Like it’s sometimes said, 60 is the new 50. My dad is still very young and loves to live and have fun. Also during the celebrations, mum said “he just changed numbers and has moved from 5 to 6…59-60. Hence, more grace, blessing, accomplishments, battles etc. We trust God to continually fortify and strengthen him”.

After cutting the cake, popping champagne and opening his gift, we ate, drank and partied our way through the day.
To conclude, what a blessing this day was, and is forever stamped in my heart. Happy 60th bday Dad. May God continuously bless you always. We all love you!

Now stay tuned for the next episode of my 25 days adventure.

When the journey officially began!

What a wonderful 😊 flight I had. First time boarding Ethiopian airline and I can tell u that the service was impeccable. However, the flight was so long. Can you imagine flying for 13 hours non-stop? Hahah that was my fate, followed by a 6 hours flight to Cameroon with a stop in Gabon. It’s always fun to step foot in other countries, which I can now claim to have seen (although I just passed by during a layover, hahahah).
Hence, the joy of trying different airlines for every trip.

Although the service was impeccable, I had a bad (well maybe not so good) experience. You are probably wondering what happened! Unfortunately, I fainted during the flight and hurt my head and butt. As a result, I was very uncomfortable throughout the remainder of the flight.

The flight crew was very helpful and friendly, but I kept praying for us to land Asap. I can assure you that it wasn’t fun at all and I couldn’t wait to land. We finally landed in Cameroon after flying for 24 hours. Fun fun fun eh…

Now stay tuned for the next episode of my 25 days adventure.

It’s a wrap! About to board the ✈️

It’s a new year!

If in 2017, our paths crossed, our paths diverged, or our paths merged, I am grateful.

It was a pleasure knowing you all in 2017 and I look forward to knowing you better in 2018.

For all those who supported me, my dreams, my family and my future I appreciate you. Our God will not forget your labour of love.

For all who believed, believe and will believe in my passion, mission and vision, I say thank you. You are the real MVPs.

I know and believe that this new year will be my (our) greatest and best year thus far, so let’s stay focus and true to ourselves, true to our beliefs, mission, passion and vision.

Stay blessed and keep soaring high. The sky isn’t the limit, so don’t let your thoughts limit you.

Cheers to increased success, love, peace, joy, grace, money, health, prosperity and much more ❤️!
Happy new year 2018!
Thank you note

The month of December!

A time of reflection
A time of evaluation;

A season of analysis
A season of synthesis;

A moment of truth
A moment of worth;

An opportunity to grow, so let’s not forget to blow.

A feeling of praise
A feeling of grace;

Let’s take the time to appreciate
Let’s take the time to celebrate;

Life is too short to worry
Life is to short to be weary;

So let’s pray for a better tomorrow with no more sorrow.
