Small Chops: When Life is Foggy

Small Chops: A Nigerian term for Canapés, Hors d’oeuvres and the like. Small Chops: Quick thoughts of mine This picture was taken early January in Dubai. People are often under the impression that Dubai is 24/7 Sun, Sea and Sand, which most times of the year it is, but it rains*, it gets cold (from 40º+  heat to 16º in “winter” so yes it gets cold), the fog is impossible to see through and the sandstorms are things only meant for Disney Films (sand in your hair after wash day is the worst). As with Life. Life may be and even continue to be a Sun, Sea and Sand picturesque moment, but sometimes fog and rain will appear in places you least expected (literally). Looking at this picture, and not knowing the many floors located in the building, it’ll be easy to assume that only the floors in this picture are all the floors in the building. This building has 33 floors (I work on the 31st), in the fog you can just about make …

Events: The Seed Film Premier | This Bank Holiday Monday

So as the bank holiday approaches (I have a 4-day weekend *grins*) I’ll be heading to see “The Seed” on Monday 4th May!

I’m looking forward to seeing this on Monday and I hope you’ll be able to come out and support the efforts of some amazingly brave and talented young people!

Life: The Birthday Recap – 25 & Counting

The month of May officially ended last week, it also means that my birthday celebrations have also officially ended. I turned the amazing age of 25, and to have that much life sitting under my belt, is somewhat hefty! I have to admit though, I don’t remember the last time I was so excited about a birthday like this one, I had no particular reason to be so excited but I was and I’m still excited at the fact that I am 25! Looking back on it, everything I had planned, to celebrate my birthday, actually happened! Proverbs 16 verse 3: “Put God in charge of your work, then what you’ve planned will take place.” I can only be grateful to God for allowing me the chance to celebrate my birthday and to do so in New York. Considering that so many of my close relatives and friends share the same birthday month with me, made it that much more exciting by the time my birthday came around. Every week in May I had something planned; at the start …
