Increase in price of foodstuff + China Engrish

This is the third time my mum will come back from the market complaining. What's going on people? The price of foodstuff in Nigeria has increased by almost a 100% in the last two weeks or so.
A cup of rice that used to go for N80 is now N150.
A bag of rice that used to go for N6, 500 is now N12, 000
A cup of beans that used to go for N50 is now N80
A pack of Maggi cubes that used to go for N180 is now N250
A bottle of groundnut oil that used to go for N140 is now N250
A tuber of yam that used to go for N200-250 is now N350
A bag of pure water that used to go for N70 is now N100
While a sachet of pure water that used to go for N5 is now N10.
What is this?

But then someone told me it's not only in Nigeria that this is happening. Is it true that the price of foodstuff has increased in most parts of the world? Are you experiencing it too in your country of residence? Is this temporary? If this is going on in most parts of the world, then what the hell caused it?

The problem with Nigeria is that once a price goes UP, it never comes DOWN
How will the less privileged people survive when they can't even afford a cup of garri? This is not funny o...and there's even no salary increase.

What is going on Mr President? This is not what you promised us o.

On a lighter note, let the Chinese people entertain you...hilarious!

Halle Berry's first public appearance since giving birth. She's still the most gorgeous woman in the world...after Aishwarya Rai Bachchan?...no? yes? yesno? lol.

My mag's 3rd edition should be hitting the stores on Monday. I'm picking it up tomorrow afternoon. If I get there tomorrow and don't get my magazines, I'm exchanging blows with everyone I see there. From the security man to the MD. They're all going down. I swear I'm going 'Jackie Chan' on all of them. I gave them the mag to print in March and they said it would be ready in two weeks, this week will make it five weeks...isn't that so annoying?
Let me get there tomorrow and not get my mags...we'll see who will land in the hospital...ME or THEM.

Naija Entertainment News.

Munachi reacts to all the rumours
What’s your reaction to the published stories of your affair with Peter Okoye of P-Square?
Munachi
"There’s nothing going on between Peter and I. We are just good friends. It’s because we look like a good combination. Peter is one of the handsome twins that make up P-Square. I am Munachi of the MBGN fame who also loves music. The fact that people see us together is what they like to talk about. Peter is a close friend and that’s it."

Have you met Lola?
Munachi
"Sure, we’ve met. Lola is a beautiful and nice lady. She’s free; anyone who sees her will like her. She’s warm, cool and friendly."

What’s your comment on Lola’s pregnancy for Peter?
Munachi
"I’m just reading about it in your magazine now. I am happy for the couple. I think it’s a beautiful thing. I can’t wait to see the baby and rejoice with them. I wish them well”

Ini Edo denies being arrested with drugs
In a recent publication, it was alleged that you were apprehended by NDLEA operatives for being in possession of drugs, can you please give us the scenario of exactly what happened?
Ini Edo "There is no iota of truth in the story. I don't know where the story emanated from. But for the records I have never been involved with drugs. I make a very comfortable income from my job and I am satisfied with it, so why would I take such a risk being fully aware of the repercussions?

So you are categorically telling everyone now that you were not arrested for drugs?
Ini Edo "You can go ahead and contact the NDLEA yourself and confirm"

We heard you are receiving threats to your life, you want to confirm this?
Ini Edo "Yes, it's true. I've received all sorts and I don't understand why anyone would want to get rid of me. Those around me will tell you that I am not a confrontational person. I try to be cordial with people and to the best of my knowledge I have not offended anybody"

Well, it seems someone is upset with her. Ini is supposedly engaged to man, Philip Ehigawima, who has an estranged wife, a model and actress, Ruth Okoro. She spoke to uche Olehi of Encomium Mag recently about her husband and Ini.
Excerpt...


Would you say Ini Edo, your husband's fiancee is a husband snatcher?
Ruth Okoro
"I’m not in a position to call anybody names. I just know that God
has the final judgment for everything. I’ve never met her before; all I know is that she’s an actress. But I rememeber when I heard the rumour she was sleeping around with my husband, all I did because I didn’t know was to send her an email and explained everything to her.
The email “Maybe you don’t know what’s going on. I heard you’ve been sleeping with my husband, so when you are done with him, let him come back to his wife.”
I explained he left me when I had cancer. He caused my miscarriage when I was carrying his child. I heard he got two other women pregnant, Stories like that just to put her on the track, just in case she didn’t know. I didn’t put any blame but rather than reply me, she emailed it to my husband. My husband called me and said “Ruth, you know I love you so much and whatever happened, we will always be together. But you don’t have to send emails to Ini Edo exposing me” He was calling me on the phone, Ini Edo heard everything but she didn’t reconsider her actions. Maybe it is the money that is tripping her. Maybe it’s the cars or the looks, but whatever it is, the fact is that Philip was nothing close to that when I married him. I know where I picked him up from and I know hard both of us worked together for him to get to where he is now. If Ini thinks life is all about money, she’s wrong. When you do something to someone, it will come back and hurt you. Let them move on with their lives, it’s a free world."

Pero Adeniyi still pregnant
As written by Stella Dimoko Korkus in Encomium

“The news making the rounds that Tuface’s baby mama, Pero Adeniyi has popped twins for the crooner is false. The heavily pregnant Pero was spotted in New York on Saturday April 19th five days after reports said she had popped the babies in Barbados. The babies are said to be due in a forthnight. Contact was made with Pero to speak on the issue of her false delivery. Hear her “I am sure those telling these stories wish me well. I thank everyone” She did confirm that she’s expecting twins. Huh? I thought she already had a baby?
To other Tuface Idibia news, another girl is reportedly pregnant for him. A 24 year old Festac resident called Bimbo, is said to be 4months pregnant. Another one Tuface? You must be out of your damn mind.

Yar Adua is sick

Our dear president is said to be in far away Germany for check up and reports indicate he was diagnosed with Churg Strauss syndrome. A rare disease that causes inflammation of blood vessels (also referred to as angiitis) in the lungs, skin, abdomen and nerves..
Let’s all pray for him.

Pa Adesanya is dead. He died at age 86 some days ago.

Gani Fawehinmi also has cancer. Wishing him the very best

Question!

What's the difference between 'I love you' and 'I am in love with you' ?
Someone said there's a difference and I have absolutely no idea what that difference is...
Does anyone know?

The World is Beautiful

The world is beautiful...
If you don't believe it, let me proove it to you.
Don't you dare close your eyes...don't even blink...
See the beauty God gave us...


"Most of us have had moments in childhood when we touched the divine presence. We did not think it extraordinary because it wasn't; it was just a beautiful moment filled with love. In those simple moments our hearts were alive, and we saw the poignant beauty of life vividly with wonder and appreciation."
David McArthur and Bruce McArthur.


"Beauty seen is never lost, God's colors all are fast."
John Greenleaf Whittier


"It is not sufficient to see and to know the beauty of a work. We must feel and be affected by it."
Voltaire


"The real sin against life is to abuse and destroy beauty, even one's own—even more, one's own, for that has been put in our care and we are responsible for its well-being."
Katherine Anne Porter



"Beauty is an ecstasy; it is as simple as hunger. There is really nothing to be said about it. It is like the perfume of a rose: you can smell it and that is all."
W. Somerset Maugham


"Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old."
Franz Kafka


"A person is only beautiful, when their own beauty, is reflecting on to others."
Tara Grady



"There is nothing ugly; I never saw an ugly thing in my life: for let the form of an object be what it may, -- light, shade, and perspective will always make it beautiful."
John Constable



"Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not."
Ralph Waldo Emerson



"Beauty is an experience, nothing else. It is not a fixed pattern or an arrangement of features. It is something felt, a glow or a communicated sense of fineness. What ails us is that our sense of beauty is so bruised and blunted, we miss all the best."
D. H. Lawrence



"Remember that the most beautiful things in the world are the most useless; peacocks and lilies for instance."
John Ruskin


"Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart."
Khalil Gibran


"For every beauty there is an eye somewhere to see it.For every truth there is an ear somewhere to hear it.For every love there is a heart somewhere to receive it."
Ivan Panin


"It is good to realize that if love and peace can prevail on earth, and if we can teach our children to honor nature's gifts, the joys and beauties of the outdoors will be here forever."
Jimmy Carter


"Keep your faith in all beautiful things; in the sun when it is hidden, in the Spring when it is gone."
Roy R. Gilson


"A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul."
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


"People are like stained glass windows: they sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light within."
Elizabeth Kubler-Ross


"If eyes were made for seeing, then Beauty is it's own excuse for being."
Ralph Waldo Emerson


"A thing of beauty is a joy forever; its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness."
John Keats


"We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open."
Jawaharlal Nehru


"There is certainly no absolute standard of beauty. That precisely is what makes its pursuit so interesting."
John Kenneth Galbraith


The world is really beautiful...don't you agree?
