The Ever-Efficient Blogger

That's ME! I am still yet to explain why I was away for such a long time (and let me not hear anyone say gee Mona get over it we're used to you now), it's as a result of my QLC which I will talk about soon. As Suzy Peaches is missing in action, I am gleefully taking her place.

A book called Naija bloggers Vol 1. is coming out in the near future, see Laspapi's post for more details.

BBC and Naija Bloggers

There has also been an article on the BBC on Nigerian Bloggers. Chicafricana mentions it in her most recent post and I believe this article was written by Nkem, another blogger.

No Spraying of Naira

I have also just got word that a new bill is being passed to jail Naija sprayers as this is abuse of the country's currency. Wait, okay? My friend said in her email - They Want To Kill Yoruba People! Got that right. Read about it in today's Daily Trust.

Petitions and other random stuff

They really want to kill yoruba folks o, no spraying ke, isshh Cant wait to read the next post! Saw ur pics @ ur friend's wedding n u looked good girl!

Maybe they should say spray money only in sanitized areas where there is no mud on the ground...The Niara is really feeling abused though. I guess the N20 is okay though.

Anonymous said...

that N20 note is still a mystery to the plastic bit supposed to make it difficult for them to fake it?

meanwhile Mona, I hope you intend to be in the naija bloggers book.LOL. when i opened the BBC link i first scaned through to see if i'l find ur name there.anyway girlie keep up the good work .

No spraying naij currency???? Gosh thats effed o!! on the up side at least ill be sprayed in hard currency!! tehe!

Only Nigerians can decide that something that has become our culture over the last 40+ years is disrespectful to our currency and therefore our country (WTF). Spraying is done in celebration - some other cultures have pinned money to brides for 50 yrs without any bans. STOP THE BAN (as b said - i have a few events coming up this year and have planned how to spend my sprayed money)

I'm late on this one but they can't stop spraying. They have to at least wait till I get married and I collect my spraying of N10M, then they can stop it. That is totally killing the Yorubab culture, for real!

louis vuitton bags will surely look good on just about anything, and can be used from day till night while on a little get together party. This Monogram Vernis is in blue galactic, pink and sunset orange colors, which are both striking and stylish looking. Each of Monogram Watercolor carries a tag of $855, which is somewhat low-priced for such Patent leather handbag.
