I really got it bad, although I've been clean for a couple of months now, I won't bore you with details because this post is not about me but about another discovery I stumbled upon while crawling the city.
Abuja is full of them, New places, great Places, so if you haven't been to the Cafe @ Silverbird yet, then Why?
All the reasons that spring up in your mind are totally inconsequential, because if you appreciate good stuff you will go out of your way to get it. I know what you are thinking, it must cost a fortune, I am happy to inform you that it doesn't, not at all, infact it came as quite a shock to me that they are cheaper than your Regular Abuja place and the price doesn't remove from the quality.
The service is great, the enviroment is great and they have a good spread of pastries, Coffee, expressos ,cappucino etc different flavours and best of all it doesn't bite my pocket.
I know what you are thinking, this post is for coffee lovers, nope! They have got other drinks that will surely interest you.
Its located @ the 3rd floor of the silverbird galleria Just beside the ticket booth and this description is hardly neccessary because it hard to miss
So go try it out, and leave a comment telling us what you think. You just might see the City Crawler there, dazzling a client with the beautiful things abuja has to offer.

And that cases have been reported in 12 states Edo, Nasarawa, Plateau, Ebonyi, Taraba, Yobe, Ondo, Rivers, Gombe, Anambra, Delta and Lagos.
But no need to Panic, The Ministry of Health has released adequate quantities of Ribavirin injections and tablets, the specific antiviral drug for Lassa fever. Amongst other percausionary measures, Hotlines have been provided for health workers for expert advice. The numbers are: 08037154575, 08023214998, 08037879701 and 08023047101.
Be Cautious because one can get infected by eating food contaminated with rat excreta/urine deposited on surfaces such as floors, beds, household utensils or in food and water e.g. surfaces of canned drinks/foods and other stored food items). Person to person infection also occurs through direct contact or inhalation of infected body fluids including blood, urine, saliva, throat secretion, etc.
The symptoms of the disease, which are noticed between one to three weeks after being in contact with the virus include:
· Pain behind the chest wall
· Sore throat
· Back and abdominal pain
· Vomiting and diarrhoea
· Facial swelling and mucosal bleeding.
The antiviral drug “Ribavirin” is an effective treatment for lassa fever when given early in the course of the illness. Patients suspected to have lassa fever, or have persistent fever and do not respond to the standard treatment for malaria and typhoid, should report to the nearest hospital.
To prevent Lassa Fever Good Sanitary measures must be taken immediately to promote Good hygiene and prevent rodents from entering homes. Rodent Proof your house, Cook food thoroughly and make sure you check the surfaces of canned food before you consume.
Health is Wealth, You Know this, so be cautious.
N.B Hotlines are Available 24/7

If there is one thing I know for sure its that Things Change, You know Prices go up(subsidy and things), Change of location, Good places go Bad, some go kaput - Nothing stays the same.
But despite the move one thing has stayed the same for Vanilla Restaurant; Lovely Decor and Ambiance, Great Service with a Smile and most importantly Fantastic Cuisine after all we are talking about the ultimate "Eating Out" Experience.
But wait! Did I say it stayed the same? My Apologies. It got so much better.
A new place could spring up in the City on any given day but I'm impressed that Vanilla has been able to set a standard for fine dining and evening relaxation.
My Bday dinner was made special because of their impeccable service and such a gracious Host.
You know I can't experience something Nice and not share with you all. So head over to No.28 Pope John Paul 2 Street (former Quorum)off Gana, Maitama Abuja. They have a Garden section where you can enjoy the cool of the evening, Perfect for me.
P.S If you find anywhere that has gotten better or gone worse, Recently open or Long since Closed, Please Let the City Crawler know. Remember you are Golden.

Yes I know it’s more than 43 days gone into the New Year but since this is my first blog post of the year, it’s in order.
My last post was a while back, I apologize. Old woman like me(LOL) I took a short hiatus to go back to business to learn the rudiments of business because I found out the hard way that sometimes passion, determination and drive, although important, are not quite enough.
When I say I learnt the hard way, I mean every word. I ventured into business in 2008 and I became quite the serial entrepreneur, it was nice and fulfilling you know but the millions were not rolling in because there was no proper structure. Things came to a head in April 2011 when my biggest investment went down the drain mainly because I took a sensitive business risk based on personal reasons. I hadn’t really recovered but I was so eager to go back to business. Not so easy. The obstacles of starting again stared at me.
But you can’t keep a good woman/man down. I admit I was depressed at my loss for a while, who wouldn’t be. All my money gone, the time invested etc. it felt like adopting a child and loosing it after only a few months. Luckily for me I had the right kind of support to see me through; I picked myself up, dusted myself and carried on.
I was very lucky to find a business school in Abuja that really suited my schedule at the time, because it catered to CEOs of already existing business. If you haven’t already heard about it, it’s the Enterprise Development Center of the Pan African University. Also under the Pan African Uni is a Graduate business school; the Lagos Business School (LBS) and the Graduate School of Media and Communication(SMC), (at my graduation ceremony I noticed Wale Adenuga Jnr and Helen Paul of Jara graduating from this unit).
Long story short, I am back in business. With a double dose of passion, drive, determination, vision and confidence that I am going to make it this time armed with my newly acquired knowledge and of course God by my side.
I am one of the lucky few; some people fall down and stay down because they are too afraid or too embarrassed to show their faces. But like the saying goes, “don’t give up, if you try and don’t succeed, try try again.
Ill Definitely recommend the Certificate of Entrepreneurial Management course to anyone who wants to venture into serious business that will even outlive them, the school is also great for networking purposes as I made lifelong friends and business partners amongst my classmates. If you want to know more call Miss Nata on 07029201980.

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN STUCK in an elevator with the CEO of a company you have been dying to meet?
Have you ever been sited on the same table next to a guy/girl you have been dying to talk to?
You should actually picture the scenario in your head. If you find yourself in this situation, what are you going to say?
Most of the time we are overwhelmed. Before we even recover from the realization of the sheer magnitude of our luck, the Chief Executive gets off on his floor or your table partner turns his/her back, to talk to someone else on the table.
Its global entrepreneurship week (14th to 18th Nov) and it is my humble belief that the SME’s (small and medium enterprise)in every field will play a strong role in the solving of Nigeria’s unemployment issues, either as employer or employee. Running a small business is tough, especially for young people all over the world, and you need all the support you can get, from investors, partners, customers etc. Don’t ever take for granted that you have a good product or service that will sell itself, always be prepared to sell your product in a unique and creative way, at every opportunity you will find, that will spark the interest of your audience and If you need any help Developing an “Elevator Pitch” or Creatively Selling your Product or Service to assure great ROI please contact White Rabbit Global Concept on 08037135829

My home girl is getting married.
It’s so romantic how her fiancé proposed to her. It came as a total surprise. Yes she knew that the relationship was going to end in marriage, but she didn’t know he was so ready to do the big “P”. Anyways, my friend wasn’t ready for her big day5months ago when she was proposed to and her reason might seem fickle to you but not to her. She wasn’t her perfect weight, her skin wasn’t glowing and her front hair had chopped off (damn lace wig).
So you can imagine my surprise and delight when I ran into her a couple of days ago, she is looking trim, her skin is glowing and she has a FULL head of HAIR. WOW
WHAT's The Secret????
Shea Butter, Sheer MagicShea Butter is becoming increasingly popular in the natural body care and cosmetic industries for good reason. It has been used for centuries in Africa for its moisturizing and healing properties, where it has been used to protect and condition skin which has been damaged by the sun and wind. Shea Butter is an intense moisturizer for dry skin, and is a wonderful product for revitalizing dull or dry skin on the body or scalp. It promotes skin renewal, increases the circulation, and accelerates wound healing. It is also beneficial for the treatment of many different conditions, such as:
*Dry skin *Stretch marks *Itchy skin, *skin rashes, *Eczema, *Dermatitis *Sunburn *Small skin wounds *Damaged skin *Rough skin (such as on feet) *Insect bites*Muscle aches, fatigue, and tension *Wrinkles and signs of ageing *Chapped skin from cold weather *Dry or over processed hair *Diaper rash*Skin allergies *Frost bite etc.....
