Hey everyone how is the going going? I want to wish you happy holidays- I say Holidays because I hear the Prophet’s birthday is around Christmas this year. So Merry Christmas and a Happy new year in addition to that.
For me it doesn’t really feel like Christmas and I am not sure why. I just feel like everywhere is crowded, petrol is not available and sleep has been evading me.
Lagos really just feels bleh and they keep announcing even more bizzare and stifling money related policies. You already cannot spend more than a certain amount using your Naira card daily without penalty- now they have put a ban on foreign atm withdrawals and spending when you go overseas or foreign websites effective January 1st. So what exactly is the purpose of the atm card again? It really just feels like one should earn Naira – change it quickly before the rate gets even more suicidal and then stock pile forex in your house. Your salary or income is constant, but all you have to do is wake up and your purchasing power has declined drastically.
Anyways what do you wish for this Christmas?
As for me- I just want like a week of proper sleep and assortment of food that is magically fresh everyday at my house. On second thought travelling might not have been bad but alas – i shakara-d that I didnt want to go to London. I don’t like London – border patrol and high exchange rate and little value for money. My husband on the other hand is a London superstar.😅
I wish you all that you wish yourself this festive period and please try to be safe in whatever activities you chose to engage in. Especially if it involves sitting in traffic. I was stuck in VI traffic at 11.30pm on friday night and took off all my valuables and put them somewhere the sun doesnt shine. 😂 the fear of Lagos is the beginning of wisdom.
