HOW TO SURVIVE YOUR DAY WITHOUT LIGHT IN NAIJA
All the same, life has to go on while we keep praying and believing that things get better so I came up with some suggestions on how to survive without light in Nigeria.
1. First of all, just renew your mind and pretend you are living in one archaic 'the gods must be crazy' village where you cannot access light or any other basic amenities. Done that? Good! Now we can continue.
2. The day you manage to hustle fuel from the black market sellers at N300 a litre, before putting on your generator, make sure everything that needs to be charged has been plugged and ready to charge, these incudes your power banks(very important), rechargeable lamp, rechargeable fans(and any any other rechargeable), laptops, tabs, phones etc. They must be in place to guarantee your sanity later.
3. Still before putting on the generator, inform everyone in the house that the generator will soon be on so they can be on standby ready to carry out any task that needs to be done with electricity at the same time like ironing, blending,washing and even the kids watching their favourite cartoon.
4. Don't prepare food in bulk! All that cooking two to three different soups and stews and storing in the fridge for the entire month, mba! This is not the time for that. Now you cook in bits, your soup, stews and any other food cannot exceed two or three days otherwise it looses it fresh taste and nutrients from too much warming, as a matter of fact, you'll have to frequent the market two to three times a week, so brace yourself!
5. For entertainment,forget television or the games on your phone. Play a game of good old board games like monopoly, scrabble, ludo,snake and ladder and whot.
I promise you that with these few points of mine, you can survive your day without light,lol. If you have any contributions please feel free to drop it in the comments sections. xo
Welcome to my blog, I hope we all have fun as I share the crazy and not so crazy things that go on in my head. My name is Nsa, but for the purposes of blogging you could call me kobnomi, KNB for short, if you like. I am an efik chic as you may have guessed, a lover of God (don't know what I would do without Him), a wife and a mother. I absolutely love life and I'm on a journey to living it to the fullest!
