How was your weekend? I hope you had a nice one like I did.
On Friday night, Cakes' brothers wanted to hang out and go clubbing. I was kinda skeptical because I really don't like "joints." As much as I enjoy fresh air, I really don't enjoy sitting out at night because my skin/blood has a special ingredient that all kinds of insects are addicted to. Well, sure enough, it was one of the joints in Lekki - Hedges and Smith. We were there for about 30 minutes before I started feeling tired and ready to go home, but Cakes managed to keep me there for an hour longer before we headed home. There was an interesting conversation that I will blog about later on in the week.
On Saturday, my plan was to stay home ALL DAY LOOOOOONG, but I had completely forgotten about a Food/Cooking event arranged by the Connect Group/Ministry at my church. Luckily I checked my email and rearranged my day. For this meetup, people who came were treated to a live Master Class by Chef Fregz! He chose to make his yummy Omawonder, and 2 lucky guests were randomly selected to cook along :)
There was a lot of talk about food, like how to filet a fish, how to properly clean prawns/shrimps, how to seduce your husband into eating more healthy food and stop with the deep-frying (of course I DID
Mooooving on, here are some pictures from the event. Oh, I won a free packet of Knorr Cubes!

|Saffron is the most expensive spice in the world! Learn something new everyday.|
|Watch this - he's talking to us and still chopping away!|
|Expert hosting tip: Use nice looking plates! It can enhance the look of your food! I like Symphony dinnerware. I wish I could buy ALL their stuff. You can find them at Spar/Park N Shop stores.|

|Final product. The garnish is a spring onion sliced at the tips - automatically curls!|
Afterwards, Cakes and I headed to Lekki Leisure Lakes for my friend's birthday party. We just chilled, had drinks, got on the boat thingy, took pictures, laughed and had a generally good time.
