2014, Already an Amazing Year

Happy New Year! 
It always is an exciting feeling for me at the beginning of the year, like I have been given an opportunity to start all over.Letting go old hurts, worries and cares...while letting in new opportunities, endless possibilities and a renewed zest for life. Or maybe I just like new things.
Hope the year 2013 did not leave you sad and bitter? Never mind if it did, doesn't matter how it ended, just don't let that sinking feeling start the new year for you. Being alive means you get to have a 'do-over' on almost anything.
I hope your year goes great, mine will..I get to have three spanking new certificates (great achievement in life), super excited and grateful to God for My Friends, Family, 'Hazel Eyez' and everything in between.
Looking forward to an Amazing 2014! Lets Do This!

Paul Walker, Another One Bites the Dust


Paul-Walker-dead-few-recent-quotes-by-Paul-Walker

Yesterday morning, I noticed on twitter that a lot of people had several messages as regards actor, best known for his role in the very successful movie franchise'Fast and Furious'.
Isn't it amazing how a make believe character can become so real to us that we actually feel like we know the real person behind the scene.
To some he was the fair hired hottie with a fast car, to some he wasa co-actor, to some a friend, and to his teenage daughter he was just 'daddy'
I never really knew or read much about him, was not even such a huge fan, but I was touched that one so young died in such a ghastly way, morbid as it may sound, he kinda died the way we knew him...in a fast car.
RIP Paul Walker, you are being mourned by the world, which means you must have done something right, something worth making friends like Tyrese weep, strangers in far away Nigeria putting up your photos on their Displays and wishing you eternal rest.
At the end of the day, we all pray and hope we have contributed enough to the world to have made a mark, and when we leave this world enough to ensure us a better place for all eternity.

'Baptism' A poem by Obehi Aigiomawu

Raised arms woman
Come tomorrow, I will die.
Shadow in comparison to real form,
Immersed in water, will my eyes be open
In search of a sign in the sky?
Or will they betray this fantasy and be shut like
an actor in the clutches of a scene?
Will I taste the water, or will some go down my nostrils?
Will this fake death have me prisoner for a few seconds, and will calm flee and flesh seek
Premature resurrection?
Perhaps I’ll find the water warm and welcoming
Or perharps cold and indifferent
To a sinner like many others
In need of a second chance.
Willing participant of this simple yet complex act. Unfazed by its publicty
Or skilled at hiding it well.
Will there be a mischievous stone at the riverbank?
That would cause me to stumble
And temporarily wish to make the river my grave?
Or will my short walk be smooth like a river creature returning home?
In those seconds immersed in flowing water, will I feel the transition to this new life?
Will the sky be clear or randomly dotted by birds?
Oh, for a sign to make a good story!
Pulled out from water,
Will I greedily gasp for air?
Or feign calm, like oxygen I hadn’t missed.   Will I shiver beneath dark clouds?
Or bask in the warmth of the glorious sun?
Will I stand in wait for the others?
Or be permitted to put on warm clothing—
First domestic act of this new life?
And afterwards?
How changed will I be?
Set in default?
Will new mistakes replace old ones?
Will I ask these many question then or will I just know?
Plup,plup,plup!
Water.
Water drops from the kitchen tap—
My only companion in this web of boredom,
I take it as the tick,tick,tick, of my faulty clock,
Countdown to tomorrow,
Host to my death and resurrection.

Terms of Endearment from Strangers, Cheesy or Not?



Okay, I am not in a rant and rave mood right now, but sincerely Ladies, am I the only one who finds it very cheesy, and too forward when a guy I do not know refers to me as baby, sexy, pumpkin, sweetheart, honey etc? Like seriously, you are trying to ask me out ,or hit on me and you think such  starters would cut it?
I thought such endearments where reserved for those we know and care about, not total strangers?
It is becoming the norm for some guys, to think baby or angel is sweet to call a stranger, I don't! But then again, some ladies might like it, and it probably works for the guys too.
Seriously ladies, do you think it is cool, or am I the crazy one who thinks only people you know should have pet names for us?

DisneyWorld + Zimbabwe's Victoria Falls, I like


I figured my fellow Travelholics will appreciate this information.

Wouldnt it be grand if Zimbabwe truly explored this beautiful gift of nature? Not that we explore ours here in Nigeria, but what the heck, you see something laudable you just say it.


According to the BBC, Zimbabwe plans to build a "Disneyland in Africa" at the world famous Victoria Falls to boost tourism, a government minister has told the BBC.
The government would spend more than $300m (£193m) on the theme park, said Tourist Minister Walter Mzembi.
Zimbabwe is trying to rebuild its tourism industry after a decade of conflict and hyperinflation.
Zimbabwe is not leveraging the Victoria Falls enough, Mr Mzembi told the BBC on Tuesday, describing it as a "sleeping giant".
"It's a wake-up call for us...we must build a new tourism facility with an impact," he said.
"We think it should be modelled along the size and the kind of vision that is on Disneyland, including hotels, entertainment parks, restaurants, conferencing facilities. This is the vision and we need people who can run with it."

Six Year Old Boy's Eyes Gouged By Human Part Traffickers!

Such Cruelty! I am still in shock at how wicked humans can be. When an animal attacks you, it does so in its defence, or for food. How do you explain someone snatching a six year old kid, while playing outside his home in Linfen, Shanxi Province in China. Only for the parents to find him three hours later screaming in a field covered in blood!
Kidnapper reportedly told boy: 'Don’t cry and I won’t gouge out your eyes' The bloody liars!

  • According to the Daily MailThe illicit organ trade in China has been triggered by the disparity between the 300,000 people on hospital transplant waiting lists and the fact that only 10,000 organ transplant operations are performed each year.
    Few Chinese agree to donate their organs after death, fuelling the rampant illegal market activity.
