I work from home a lot… My room is my workspace. While this might seem like the dream seeing as I get to avoid Lagos roads and traffic, and work flexibly, it’s also the worst arrangement as power supply is erratic in Nigeria, and generators are noisy and I almost can’t resist a well laid bed so I am tempted to sleep off or I get distracted by something else at home. I’ve found out that you can work from almost anywhere in Lagos if you really have no choice… In traffic, KFC and even mama put. Deals can be closed anywhere especially when you are the one receiving the money… don’t let anyone deceive you. Noise: what noise? What happens when you have to do work that you actually need a quiet place for like writing, freelancing, or when you want to read for an important exam? Remember how I…

While its summer everywhere else, its raining cats, dogs and trailers in Lagos, Nigeria I do not like the rain. Especially In Lagos. Everywhere is grimy and muddy and everyone is angry. About the trailers, a group of people have decided to hold the whole of Lagos hostage by parking their trailers on the road permanently for no good reason.. There’s traffic gridlock everywhere and it seems like no one can do anything about it..  sigh If you have been following my blog… my content has been somehow and enthusiasm has been down for a bit. In fact all my blog posts in July were scheduled in May…  June and July have just been bleh!!! I had to find new reasons to blog as the reason why I started blogging initially stopped motivating me.. I also noticed that a lot of my fav bloggers also started getting demotivated to…

If you follow me on Instagram, you would have seen my fine fine pictures of Cotonu, Benin on my Insta stories.. If you don’t follow me, I recommend you should asap cos ill be posting more pictures soon.. My handle is @yevandy Cotonu is a beautiful city guys. Looks very colonial if I must admit but from the moment we drove in the air was different from Lagos air… Very chilled and relaxed. I have been through Cotonu before… via a Cross Country bus on my way to Ghana in 2016.. A travel post which is still in my draft but the experience of Driving to Cotonu is WAYYYY different from taking public transport.. ILL break it down soon.. First of all.. I have to say that Seme border is …. Arguably the worst border in the world. The level of corruption and unnecessary stress there was mind blowing. Would…

I was craving puffpuff for a week. I went to Shoprite and bought all the ingredient required.. Flour and Yeast dassall.. I got home mixed everything and waited.. Puffpuff dinnor rise o.. Tried again the next day.. I still didn’t rise. I went on YouTube, followed Sisiyemmie and 9ja foodie.. Puffpuff Still dinnor rise. As I am talking to you… Puffpuff still no gree rise. No puffpuff batter has risen in one week and my flour has finished. While this was happening I was lamenting to my friend who got tired of my Wahala, came to my house and carried me to look for puffpuff… We found puffpuff after 2 busses and 1 kekenapep (tricycle) to Mushin. We spent almost an hour back home because police stopped our bus to search 1 man and there was traffic… On a Sunday Night. Now body has rested. No relevance to my story…

Alte is the short form of Alternative (I hope… I didn’t find a definition online) so Alternative Lagos or Alte Lagos it is. It’s Not the regular Lagos behavior and lifestyle which is permanently punctuated with Danfos, traffic, shouting, struggle, and sweat. It’s living the good baby girl/boy life. it’s composed of activities that the very regular average Lagosian isn’t concerned with or is too broke busy to participate in. Soooooo…. I did a lot of some research on how to live the Alte life (this is what happens when you have unlimited data and too much time) and since I might not be using it anymore.. I have decided to share.. Tell me thank you. Grab some popcorn and a Wilson lemonade let me educate you. it involves going to one or more or even all of these things. Yoga: it’s really cool to do yoga nowadays. Breath Yoga…
