Hello all,
I am sorry. i am not ashamed to admit that i am a lazy blogger. kindly nominate me for laziest blogger of the century. who blogs like me? ok, well not lazy, ah, who am i kidding???
Well,it is not like i never intended to update my blog, but you see ehn brethren and sistren, i was updating it in my head. i will think of a topic in my head, write about it in my head and update it in my head. maybe i was waiting for my village people to manifest and help update the blog electronically abi virtually as the case maybe.
I am on my knees and i promise to change.
infact,let me be in the mood of worship as i go on my knees someone pray for me as i sing

"I have decided to be a changed blogger
I have decided to be a changed blogger
I have decided to be a changed blogger
no turning back,
no turning back "

i am @madamedemadame and i still dey kneel down. someone pray for me.

I DON PORT TO 2015. GLORY!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy new year.
If you are reading this that means you've ported to the year 2015
Or your network has jammed and you are still somewhere in a place with a time difference of minus one year.
Like, you are so olden.

Any resolutions?
For me?
Well, I think I have some.

I won't be sarcastic like that again,
I will do plenty unlooking, shake my head less
Be a good girl *inserts wiiiiiiiiiiiiide grin*
I will try and update my blog regularly.
So help me God.

That is my resolution for today.
Today not this year,
So, I have updated my blog *shines teeth*
And wait, let me share this testimony.

Nepa gave us light for cross-over oh.
We didnot enter the new year in darkness.
We entered the year with light..

Praiiiiiiiiiiise Jesus!!!!!!
That is all.
This is my own "plesedential speesh".

On this note, let me wish you and yours a happy new year in advance.
Before we know what is happening now.
Another December shall be upon us.
May God guide and guard us.

once upon a wedding, twice upon the aso-ebi

Bear with me, my english is one kain. What expect you. I dropout from creche :(

Weddings. It is always a thing of joy when you hear people are getting married. You look forward to the cakes, decor at venues, bride's makeup and oh well, her train. And the ghen ghen ghen.

Gone are those days when brides had bridal train the distance from lagos to porto novo. For eggzampu!
Confetti ladies,
Ladies in waiting
Ladies in standing
Pink ladies
Ladies in purple
Aunties of the day
aunties by the coolers
uncles by the drink stand
Mothers of the day
Bleaching sisters of the day
Flower girls
Little bride etc..
Spinsters in purple
Gboko-gboko in yellow
Awon mogbo-moya in peaches
Now some don't even bother with trains.
Now it is the bRT way...

And the brides of those days with silver eye pencil, black brows and red oyeel lipstick. and otanjele.
And here comes the bride, or mother gaagoo’s protégé .
And the food.. If your guests don't eat at least twice, the ceremony wasn't it rara..
And let's go to the main aso-ebi.
Please, who started this trend?
From lace to ankara to aso-oke And all these aso-ebi's have categories oh!

And sometimes sef, buying the aso-ebi is a ticket to eating on that day Or not?
Shebi that's how I bought aso-ebi, got to reception on time, sat down where I thought they will serve us food. For wia, we ended up going home to eat noodles and washing it down with coke. Who would have thought that aso-ebi would betray me on that day?

And those with aso-ebi from seventee faf (75) tarzen naira and above , i hail oh. what gift are u attaching to that aso-ebi ? Better be ready to include generator as souvenir
that kind of aso-ebi must sha have superman's cape so i can fly anywhere... or white horse that can fly.
And if aso-ebi is btwn toofeety tarzeen to fafhondre tarzeen ( 250-500k) Your souvenir better be :
1: chariot of Elijah
2: staff of Moses
3: David's catapult or the stone used in killing Goliath
4: oh Gold from the streets of heaven

Or don't even bother at all..

But when it is time to buy my own aso-ebi, I don't want to hear that ATM has fever. By all means, break the machine and the bank. You must break the bank because of me..
