ChiefO said...

talking about okin biscuits. i was reunited with it at the african store a couple of days ago. yes! NY rocks! and they wonder why i'm not missing naija the way i'd love to miss it. all i need now is for the african store to start shipping FAN yogourt, fresh gala, TFC, and the likes.

Vera Ezimora said...

Diamond, who is Bob? At first, I thought he was a vibrator, but then since you wanna have dinner with "Bob", I figured u'd need something a lil more interactive that a vibrating thing. So who is Bob?

And errr, that dream bout gettin a hummer from Janet Jackson? LOL. You can scratch that out. Hummer ko aeroplane ni, lol. You're funny

DiAmOnD hawk said...

you know when I put Bob...i had a feeling ppl would mistake it for a Vibrator u know...VERAAAAA...YOU ARE TOO MUCH O... cracking me up early this morning when i should be sleeping

Miguel said...

Diamond you are soooo wrong!!!! Golden morn? kai who knows where i can find it in the states...also looking for TUC biscuit...lol

DiAmOnD hawk said...

hmnmmm...i usually order my Golden Morn right from Nigeria..anyone that's coming knows that they HAVE to bring me that without my asking OR ELSE..

if you send me your add, i'll send you some TUC in the New Year

GOSH... I really want some suya...the thing is i have a cousin and brother that know how to make it...i wish i was where they are...oh well

anyone been to University of Suya on Allen...that is DA spot

Nyemoni said...

Aw, the Saint.. I love that movie. Watch is over and again as well.
But Agege bread?? That's another matter entirely!

DiAmOnD hawk said...

what's wrong with agege bread now.... i like the way they used to make it...if it's the same...actually there's this bakery near my house in Nigeria that we also used to buy bread from early in the morning that tasted so divine...so warn and fresh...but I thot agege bread was more relatable...

how about cheese bread from the bread place in OPEBI...cant remember the name


and you guys that wont have faith in my HUMMER dream...wait until I drive past you in it... my dreams tend to come true :-)

LondonBuki said...

Agege Bread!!! I am going to have some of that when I go to Lagos oh. Okin biscuits!!! I had that a couple of years ago and it was not as nice and it looked like they had reduced the size... I was disappointed :-( Mr Biggs Donut!!! It is the best donut on this earth!!! I am serious!

Lizard? YUK, I hope noone eats them... with their tough skin!!!

Interesting Meme, Enjoy the rest of your week :-)

Vera, you thought Bob was a viby??? So she'd wanna have lunch with a viby? So that what will happen? HaHaHa!!!

DiAmOnD hawk said...

i'd be like Meg Ryan in how Harry Met Sally ... which by the way is a movie I could watch over and over again. That's the first movie I ever owned on DVD... I think I saw in while on hols in Nigeria and when I came back I just had to buy it...

hmmm....
YES YES OOOOOOO YEEEEESSSSSSSSSS!!!

Vickii said...

No no no, I disagree wholeheartedly on the okin biscuit, nigerian companies have no business making biscuits ... though I must admit I survived three years of boarding school on cabin biscuits with planta margarine!

But suya, yum ... it's all I'm thinking about now. Chicken suya, even better!

The Life of a Stranger called me said...

diamond you are not serious - Now that was the scene - You lived in Boston - girl what part -

Suya and TUC biscuit - mmmmm - oh how I await december with eagerness.

diamond said...

@1982..girl you're funny...but really margarine and cabin biscuits...and wonder why we did that. that cabin thing is an acquired taste...some days i liked it..other days not...and really you were lucky if the ones you got werent stale

@Life...lived 10mins walk away from Copley...in the southend...dont you just love boston? it's great!

all u people going to Nigeria this christmas...i dey jealous u guys o

The Life of a Stranger called me said...

I really liked being in Boston - I have some fun memories -

I really wish Im travelling to Nigeria in december - but alas Im going home UK for like 8 days; then off to Nigeria end of January - I have chief bridesmaid duty to do - Imagin a whole executive like me will be bridesmaid - my cuz wouldnt leave me be - upon all her 7 sisters she could have chosen one from.

temmy said...

Janet bought Hummer for you abi? I think i also dreamt that Micheal bought Cardillac for me. Thief Thief!

@ Miguel Relocate to London. Golden morn and Tuc full ground for here.

LondonBuki said...

Hey D, I just read the post about your friend, Jeff...

I am so sorry for your loss, I hope knowing he is resting with the Lord comforts you a little bit.

May his soul rest in perfect peace...

Take Care x

NaijaBloke said...

Nice list jere Diamond.why is it that everybody misses suya this much.I need to import one Hausa man to start a suya spot now,cos it seems this will be a good investment.

U have a nice weekend dear

Onya Baquebeich said...

yo hawky, your blog has had muscle pull for a while. i like the background music. You were a personal assistant to who at FIFA??? wow.
Emmm can i just say if the both of us were ever in a room watching tv, you sure as hell wouldnt have the remote control: "sweet home alabama" and "the saint"... hell na.

Cherub (former Bijouxoxo) said...

Diamond, me ur best friend, i promise to change from my stalking ways and from tormenting ur life and blogger boo's if u mail me McVities Chocolate Digestive cookies. I know i've been very, very naughty in the past, but I REPENT. How can u think of mailing Miguel TUC and me that i even dedicated a whole blog to talking about Chocolate digestives, u won't mail me. Not fair!!!

University of Suya, Faculty of Meatology, Allen campus is DA spot for Suya. Omo forget, we used to pay our dues there every Sunday without fail. I even saw Liz Benson and Ramsey Nouah there on 2 occassions.

LOASCM, why are u awaiting Dec. with eagerness? Diamond said and i quote (from my imagination) that it's only Miguel and I she's mailing TUC and Chocolate digestives to respectively. So don't be awaiting Dec. with eagerness o. Chill o, LOASCM is travelling too, see how God dey butter my bread, abeg life don't forget ur sista o, lemme know if i should mail u my addy, S& H will be on me.

diamond said...

@Temmy....which Michael bought you a Cadillac...from Bahrain? lol. you guys should just wait o

@LB...thx sweetie and Amen

@NB...I think I will join in on that investment. Hit me up when you're ready :-)

@I HAMMERED A LOT. where are you going. you cant go o. i will not allow you :-) you will be missed and come back to visit often o

@Bijou...girl you're just wonderful. Dont worry I will take everyone's orders before i leave...and by everyone i mean only a select few...by a select few i mean u..and miguel if he wants

The Life of a Stranger called me said...

Dear Diamond - I have tried to leave comment on the above post but havnt been able to for a while now - not sure if youve set it not to accept comment -

But I wanted to give you this encouragement - The Word of the Lord says to YOU Diamond - In Psalm 91 - especially vs 14 -16 - Because YOU (Diamond) Love the Lord He will rescue and protect you and in vs 16 - with long life He will satisfy you - You hear -
He also reassures you in vs 7 - a thousand may fall on your left ten thousand on your right - it will not affect you -

The Lord is faithful and Number 23 vs 19 - The Lord does not lie -

Be encouraged hun - especially now - Be of the mindset that there are prophetic words on yourlife and you will not die until they have all come to pass - and there is a lot

I just pray right now for all of jeff friends and family for the Lord who comforts to be with them right now -

I know this has begaun to play out a subtl dance on your mind - but remember He that is able is with your Permanently - IT is well.

diamond said...

yeah...i set it that way Life

Thank you sooooooooooo much...so so much for those words. Girl..seriously...i needed that. i really did. as in im almost in tears reading the verses that's how much it hit me...

God bless you Life. God bless you

The Life of a Stranger called me said...

@diamond - Amen - Be persuaded in the Lord that you serve - and always - It is well. Amen

@Bjoux - send me list - I will make sure I buy - mmmm - Digestives -
