Gist from Last Weekend




Hello My Loviessss hope you all had a restful weekend? 

So I woke up on friday all buzzing and ready for work only to get outside and realized it was raining like crazy. You see the road to my house needs serious deliverance because the sand on that road is on a different level but that is gist for another day. 

Anyways as usual, because it had rained, the traffic from lekki all the way to Victoria Island was gangster. I got towards the toll gate and realized it was really bad and decided to turn around and do the alternative route. Surprisingly, traffic was light and i was sure i would make it to work before 8 am. 

You see ehn, as much as i love Lagos state, i believe it has special issues; from impatient drivers to frowning Lastma Officials waiting for their next victims to the Police Special Squad on bikes dressed in their complete bullet proof regalia only to stop you for the tiniest traffic offense like parking to buy Boli roasted plantain to the almighty Road Safety Officials lurking around in corners waiting to stop and ask you about the renewal of your car plate number... ahn ahn...LOL Lagos Na Wa. Sorry for digressing jare i just remembered them and was pained for a moment. 
So i was driving a bit like a bus driver, trying to get on the Ajose Adeogun road and i didn't notice that two of the slabs that were supposed to cover the drainage on the road were missing and i drove right into it.


I heard a loud BANG and thought my tyre burst not realizing i drove right into the open drainage. I was shocked for close to 30 seconds shaking but was jolted back to reality by impatient Lagosians like me horning for me to leave the road. I wondered if they wanted me to carry my car on my head. You won't believe i just sat in my car and tears just started flowing freely. Anyways, thankfully some area boys came to my rescue and in less than 5 minutes, my car was out. I managed to drive the car to the side of the road and immediately called Alao my mechanic. You see Alao is a special case, he is always so happy when i call him about these kind of crisis; he is unable to hide his excitement and he gets to me in a matter of minutes that i sometimes wonder if he flies. My colleagues have teased me saying Alao bought his car from all the money he has chopped made from me...LOL. Anyways, i just gave him my car keys so he could go sort everything out and went to work. 

On saturday, i just generally stayed home since i was 'carless' and i was upset i couldn't even attend the fashion event Zizi of dressed2dnines had planned.

I wore this JBL (Jewel by Lisa) wrap dress with beaded details to church and was full of thanksgiving because again God showed up for me and like i always say, it could have been worse. That in a nutshell was how my weekend went lovies. Thanks for always reading.
xoxo.

P.S sorry for the poor picture quality in this post, i plan on changing the camera really soon. i.e after i have changed my car plate number. I don't want FRSC wahala...hehe.

    2. Sorry about your car. I detest car issues and accidents.

    3. You haven't gotten your new license plate?! Girl, it takes less than a day if you have a good person doing it for you. I guess I shouldn't bother asking if you've started on the new license :p

  4. Sorry about your car love. I know how you must have felt. I just noticed that lagos has too many law enforcement agencies. I didn't realize until you listed them here.

  8. Sorry about your car, when it rains in Lagos, especially Island, its just a terrible experience (wish it only falls when one is sleeping or at home) lol. But apart from that your dress is really lovely, the wrap dress never fails, love the details on it.
