Beautiful story, please read 🙂
A Prayer that was heard
We were sitting next to each other in the bus. Me and my sister. And suddenly we heard the sound of an ambulance nearby. The vehicles stopped and gave it a pass. As soon as I heard its siren, I stopped for a few seconds and closed my eyes. Seeing this, my sister was puzzled. I could see it in her eyes, the urge to question me about my sudden action. I thought to myself, about the time, when I had the same confusion in my mind.
It was a year before, when I was coming back from college, in the college bus, with a good friend. We were busy in our talks about school and studies when suddenly an ambulance passed by. I saw her closing her eyes and praying. She opened her eyes back after a few seconds. I asked her what she…

Let’s Wander. Who needs direction when they have each other?
“Let’s leave,” she said when she meant to say “let’s wander.”
Who needs direction when they have each other?
“Let’s run,” she said when she meant to say “let’s live anew.”
Could time really be lost if spent lost together, just the two?
“I love you,” she meant to say when she first said “let’s leave.”
But will she ever find the strength to take that huge leap?
Sorry I haven’t posted this week BUT it has been a busy week!!
- My Graduation
- My Birthday
- AND this weekend I am my younger sister’s sponsor for her Confirmation!!
I’m already exhausted with all the celebrations going on!! So I’m thinking we should have some music to re-energize for the weekend!!
I have not forgotten you! It was the last week of classes and so I had a lot of work due. You would think I would be better at time management now that I’m older! *sigh* Honestly, I was completely surprised when I realized May was the next day. I won’t be able to write for a few days but I do have a lot of things I want to share with you! I promise, they’re good! I do hope you’re enjoying your springtime and I’m wishing you a good luck if you have finals coming up! On a side note, here’s a picture of a girl twirling in blossoms! Hope it inspires you to throw your cares away and enjoy spring!
See you soon lovelies!
Readers, if you love to eat or cook, I suggest you follow this new and amazing blog! I’m a…. “new”… cook to put it at best but I know this is going on my To Do list!
I am excited about my blog! This is so new to me…even more than cooking! I am starting to fall in love with it. Sometimes , when I am sitting on bus nr. 5 – it is a 20 mins ride, so I have time to think – I picture myself and most recently also my blog in like a half year. I like to think about what kind of food and recipes and other stuff I will post, whether you will like it or not, how my blog will look like (cause I am still not satisfied) and how seriosuly I will take the whole thing. Right now I enjoy writing, and learning how to cook. Being a great cook never goes out of style…I think if a woman knows how to cook it’s hot! I am on it:)
So what I brought you today is pasta. I love…

Hey Girls, read this post! All women need to keep these wise words from Jeune Afrique in mind!
Ladies, we have all had those lectures from our mothers. Lectures about how we should and should not act, how we must behave in the presence of others and how we should handle ourselves constantly. Well today, that lecture isn’t coming from your mother, it is coming from me, after taking not only what my mother has told me but what my “Tete”s (father’s sisters) and “Amainini”s (mother’s sisters) have told me countlessly into consideration.
“As long as your father treats you like a princess. Never expect anyone to see you as less than a queen, my daughter”
This may seem quite bizarre but it’s the truth! I mean, don’t go around demanding to have your feet kissed or to be treated with the same amount of respect as the Queen of England. What I took from this is, never give anyone a reason to disrespect you!
If this picture doesn’t…

“We don’t need to look or dress like men or like men to be powerful. We can be powerful in our own way, our feminine way” ~Zooey Deschanel
A fellow blogger wrote this amazing piece on what feminine really means. She really hit home for me because as a college student I’m often told to dress like a businessman to get a job. We need to realize the being feminine is not a weakness. Why should I forgo my femininity? I am just as capable of working while looking feminine as I am looking masculine. How I look does not determine how I work. We need to change how people understand the word feminine and perceive feminine appearance this piece is a wonderful way of doing so!
Since the age of four or five, I have always considered myself a ‘tomboy’, and would always argue vehemently if someone called me ‘girly’ or ‘feminine’. These terms are usually associated with being dainty, polite and graceful, and having an intense admiration of the colour pink. I am not dainty or polite, and am about as graceful as a physically unstable elephant. I am fond of all colours, however pink is not exactly a favourite of mine. Can I still be considered feminine?
According to the Oxford dictionary, the first definition of ‘feminine’ is as follows:
Having qualities or an appearance traditionally associated with women, especially delicacy and prettiness.
The second definition of the term according to the Oxford dictionary appears to contradict the former:
Relating to women.
If this is the case- if the genuine definition of the word ‘femininity’ simply means ‘relating to women’, there can never exist a…
