Those Occasions and Moi.

 I have/had a healthy dose of occasions to attend in the last two months and I did a rundown of the ones I have been able to go to or will go to and it wasn't impressive at all.
For some I have good excuses for not being there, and for some I was just being lazy and for the rest….. I don’t know.
My apologies to occasions I didn't /won’t attend (both in arrears and in advance).
Pls don’t hold it against me. The most important thing is that I have you in mind.
So that brings me to my thought for today (actually, I have been thinking about it for some time just getting it out of my head today).
In modern times in the era of Blackberry, social networks and other form of communications, do we really need to be physically present at all occasions? (Don’t bark me down yet o!!).
Apart from the item 7, what is really important is your show of support. (Well, that’s what I think)
We all show support in different ways.
We use celebrants and couples as our display pictures days before the occasion and after sef.
We tag them on their Facebook page and we comment on their status.
We call them and send text messages.
We could show also send our gifts before and after the occasion.
They can see all that themselves.
Really, we can modify things to suit modern technology and reduce stress.
Like, live streaming of the wedding for friends to view.
Then the occasion itself is graced important family members and close friends only.
It doesn't always have to be a noisy affair.
I am indifferent about a large crowd, but I wouldn't opt for it when I have options. I might not do what i have written so far, but if i am in control i would do it.
I really hope you understand I am talking from the point of view of a non-faaji person (not the partying type)
Saving cost in every possible way is what I would gladly opt for. It’s just that the general 9ja mentality makes us do it the usual noisy way. Else peeps would read meanings to it by saying stuffs like they are broke or she is pregnant that’s why it’s a silent affair. Really, whatever the case may be, the life after the ceremony is what is important.
Just my thoughts as usual, feel free to express yours.
Any new gist?
Hmmmmm….. lemme think.
i am adding a few touch ups to spice up my posts. (sure u noticed the pix., courtesy Beji Events)
Otunba has been MIA for a while, where are u?
@Sola_O..... Don’t fall my hand.
Bibi & Kenny B… *hugs.*
AK….. You should be reading your book and not this, lol.
As the holidays draws closer please stay safe.
Happy weekend to y’all.


  1. Nice piece of work. I really enjoy reading it. Hope u aren't planning to style style reduce d rice wey I won come chop

  2. If we could all depend on technology and stream events we are supposed to grace, then who would be there? Family members are usually not as much as friends and relations in most occasions. Our presence is actually very important than the smses and dp changing. Funmi, you could start it anyway. I'm sure you'd be back here to give your thought about the outcome.

    May we never fall anyone's hands. *winks*

    Compliments of the season!

  4. These are fundamentally short term loans that do supply you meet your fiscal troubles inside a preferred precise
    time period. Thinking of time limitations these loans are especially made above an obligation 100 % free platform. As such, these are kept entirely free of charge from credential checksums. Challenges such as defaults, arrears, bankruptcy, CCJs and even IVAs are not regarded as here. Additional, there are also no collaterals linked with these loans. There is minimal paper function expected on the component of borrower. There are also no hidden or extra documentation or faxing necessary right here. Applying for these loans is also extremely practical. People just require filling an online type and as soon as this gets authorized money is received within 24 hours time frame.
