Fantastic Day, Amala Olaiya et al

Today was a FANTASTIC day ... Oh I'm LOVING Lagos!!! I'm saying this so that I will be committed to blogging about it. (lol)

Did I tell you guys that I was sent away from thh office yesterday because I wasn't putting on a tie?!?! If only they knew that the tucked in shirt and shoes actually took all the effort in the world ... me aladire activist?! It seems like the battle between me and the legal establishment has just begun!!!

By the way, I am officially an addict of Olaiya's Amala. I have been going there EVERYDAY since I came back, yeeee!!

Hope those in Nigeria had a nice worker's day?

Amala Olaiya? Chude, you've been jazzed o!! Look at the strange types selling you food when next you're there and be afraid.

Now that I've put fear in you, may I introduce you to my own joint, "White House" at Sabo?

Nwanne m nwoke, why did you have to disgrace me? LOL. You should have known before now that you needed to put on your tie, or were you expecting Tony Blair to come and do that for you.

Well man. You were at the Lagos Book Fair last year, I guess? Good, I saw you and I know you can't drift away.

Well, keep up the good work and let me go and have some...hapu ya like that!

BabaAlaye said...

Naijadude said...

Hows ur work going??

Ayoappeal said...

Nice Blog you gat here, good to know you are in Lagos now for your Chambers Attachment, i'm really happy for you.
Well about the tie thing, i feel you should start familiarising your self with it, cos it has to definitely become part of you as long as you want to remain within that chamber,
oopppss, can't remember any time i say you in tie before, Funny....
Keep eating your amala abeg, it shows the simplicity and humility of a young achiever like you.

Ayoappeal.

angel said...

Chei!!!Stella dimokokorkus called you funmi Iyanda's boy-boy!Abeg no gree for am-o!Fire her back!

laspapi said...

chude- dont listen to all these people telling you to continue with Olaiya's amala. The food there is armed and dangerous... And expensive. WHite house gives you ambience, open air seating if you so desire, and the exclusivity of, ahem, multi-chaired tables indoors.

As for my junior at the bar, Calabar Gal, and you, my "learning" colleague, God bless you

Ah beg, Chude, I don't give a &*(^ who Stella dimoko...(whatever is), don't engage in trading words with anyone. Let it be.

Chude said...

@ angel,

@laspapi,
lol. check out my latest post,. you dont need to warn me too much! I am all for White House now o!!! lol @ my learnin colleague. E no easy
