An Ode to the Fluffy Goodness(Cake)

It's been a while since you heard from me, I know. I've been trying to catch up on life, learn new things and discover the things that really matter.

So, while I was away, what was I up to? Apart from my normal busy schedule, I started learning how to bake! Yea! One of my friends volunteered to teach me, which is so amazing because I get to learn at my own pace.

I've baked two cakes so far. Both cakes mean so much to me because they symbolize my days of humble beginnings which the bible said not to despise.

This was the first ever. I baked it on the 14th of February for my boo. We were miles and poles apart so I didn't get to see him but I still had to demonstrate my love to him.

This was the second. Baked on the 24th of February for my neighbour for his birthday.
So, to the let's proceed to the Ode,
Oh, thou elegant symbol of celebration Fluffy goodness trapped in diverse shapes Cynosure of the events Handless yet uniting Covered yet inviting What is it that you a…

You Lied

You lied I am not the kind given to mindless prattle
Nor am I the kind to be swayed
by the grace of your swaying lips
Ever since I took to the fashion of judging mysteries with the guise of a wolf clan
I have had for myself a vacuum long filled from it's doldrums
I take your words for what they are, words!
with the kindness and calm I can't but disdain
each loose one I sacrifice at the altar of smouldering indifference
For you lied to me,you told me
I had too much to loose
Grand papa says its always better to be left with the "oh wells than the what ifs"
You lied,you said being self-centered is wrong
I am the north star ,the nucleus of this journey breathing life&essence
You lied, you said everything
happens for a reason
Not everything was a
cosmic sign to begin with
You lied ,you always do

Hello Heaven

Hello Heaven,

Heard you would be judging with how it ends
Heard I would be a stranger to all my friends
Heard the music would be alleluyah, hope there's highlife and not just the classicals
Hope we can hip hop to the musicals
Would the angels be on blue jeans, leather jackets or fancy kicks?
Don't tell me it's only white robes.
I'll be bored in less than a week.
Sorry for all the questions, mean no I'll intentions.
Would there be choir practice,I  hope heaven isn't all church service?
Help me not to lose faith, Jesus leave the parables and talk straight...

My Plantain Pottage Recipe

So guys, I've been having cravings for pottage since a long while now. I decided to prepare it the unorthodox way by using plantain. This post isn't going to be based on the nutritional values of plantain so I'm going to be skipping the vitamin A,C information part.
Let's get cooking

I fell in love. However, it wasn't the lovey dovey kind that you know. It was a painful kind of love that was so complicated for my juvenile mind.

My Father! Episode iv

Everything that has a beginning must surely come to an end. The holidays were finally over. Grandma's place was even more  fun than I had anticipated. The ambience, the people, who were too busy being real and had no luxury of being fake. I met a girl, a new friend I made during my visit. She said would be attending a near-by public school as her parents couldn't afford the private School's tuition fees. I felt sorry for her and told her I would attend my school's college or better still Queens college because as a matter of fact, my Father can afford. She wished me well and hoped to see me during the next holiday. 

I knew I would definitely miss my new friends and the rustic lifestyle of the place . I mean, we had a story club where we told both real and unreal stories to one another. I told of how my Father came home one day, unusually very happy that he even bought me stuffs while coming and how the happiness lasted till midnight. What really happened? My father had…
