How I Preserve Cooked Rice For Weeks

 For busy people who cannot cook except on weekends, do you know cooked rice can be preserved for as long as you want if left frozen? I stopped freezing cooked rice after trying once, defrosting before warming. The whole thing turned into pudding kind of, too soft and looking like overcooked rice or rice fufu.

This time I tried heating without defrosting first. It turned out great, still fresh and yummy. For me I prefer this to freshly cooked rice sef cos I really enjoyed the texture here. This jollof rice was served and no one knew it wasn't cooked at that moment. I haven't heated my frozen fried rice , palm oil rice and the boiled white rice, I pray they turn out fresh and yummy like the jollof.

Please do not

Lesson Teacher By Fisayo Talabi

Onyeka had gotten married faster than any of her friends had. She had been only twenty and in her final year at the University. 
She'd made plans...
• To graduate with a first class degree in          her department. 
• To build a career in Chartered                  accounting and finance before age 25.
 ....and a lot more. 

She hadn't been married off by force or by pre-planned arrangements by her parents. No. It was a wilful decision. She had met her husband when she was only eighteen. She had been in the executive team of her department and they had planned a career programme which needed sponsorship and the involvement of finance organizations. 
The moment she had walked into his office and started to discuss the department executives' proposal, he had fallen in love with her, so he claimed. He had said he loved that she was so young and ambitious, and that he loved intellectually strong women. 

Fast forward eight years later. 
Onyeka sat in living room of her matrimonial home,…

         A very close friend of mine who is in her early 20s fell in love with a man 10years older than she was and that year in 2012 they got married. But had not been able to conceive. In 2013,her husband lost his job and things became financially unstable for the couple.

No More Love For My Husband,What Do I Do?


Please I feel compelled to share and get advice.

I have been married for 3 years plus and I am at a point where I resent my husband and his presence irritates me.

This is an aftermath of abandonment when I was pregnant 4 months into the marriage and his repeated infidelity to the point he got someone pregnant.

I can not just bring myself to trust him and I always see an ulterior motive in all his actions.

At this point in my marriage I feel like throwing in the towel because I don't love him and care less what he is up to.

I am most happiest when

Can Low Sperm Motility Be Corrected? Visit Doctor Before Fertility Prayer Please

My lovely WC family. Its been awhile! Trust you are all doing well? Ok , can you recall a woman who wrote to ask about HSG sometimes ago? OK, its me and am back with my praise report. With mixed feelings I went for the HSG! Mehn! It was a bit painful but all thanks to the radiologist who is a true believer, she was like a mother, she was really gentle and kept encouraging me. (God bless her). The result came back very good.
I saw the doctor the next day and he ask me to go for hormonal profile and my honey boo boo for sperm analysis. With anxiety and all I wanted for cycle day 21 for the blood sample to be taken for the test. And hubby went for his sperm analysis. Hubby was diagnosed with low sperm motility and he was placed on Vitamin E. Can  low sperm motility be corrected?
For me, I waited for more than a month for my hormonal profile result to be ready. Mehn! I didn't know it will take that long. There were days I couldn't sleep, thinking and worrying for nothing! Finally…

Kindly Link Me With The lady Whose Husband Raped

Dear Mrs Eya, good day, I'm a die hard fan and I follow your posts on your blog religiously. But unfortunately I did not see d post about the lady that ws raped by husband because she was scared of sex and married for like 27 weeks or so. The post was made sometime in June last year.

I just read your old posts and stumbled on it. I was sad when I saw comments made by blog visitors. The way some even mocked her was just not fair.

Well, I decided 2 write to you to know if there is a way you can link me up with her. I know it might be late or perhaps she must have overcome by now, but u never can tell
I had exactly d same problem she has/had. Infact mine took almost 3yrs before I got a solution.. I thought all hope was lost, until I met someone that was informed. It ws actually a medical issue and it took me several therapies and mind setting to over come. You would not know how frustrating this was.
So I'm pleading, if there is a way you can let me get in contact with her. Who know…

Lecture 3: Importing Goods From Aliexpress Without Stress

By Dee (Miss Johnson)
Welcome to our third tutorial on Importation, so sorry for my long absence
but believe me the absence will help the house a lot on importing goods to
Nigeria with Ease.

This Lecture will be channeled at Shipping companies that ship from China
to Nigeria at a very affordable rate an d fast delivery as compared to Dhl,
Fedex, Ups etc.

This shipping companies I will reveal here ship goods from china to Nigeria
at $8 ($8*N170= 1360) per Kg for express shipping which takes just 24hrs to
get to Lagos international airport, and $5 ($5*N170 = 850) per kg for
normal shipping which takes maximum 7days to get to Nigeria.

All you need to do is chat with the seller and tell the seller you are
buying from that you want your goods shipped to your agent and China, and
instruct them to write your name and phone number on the package before
sending to your agent, but before then inform the shipping agent that you
are expecting a package, as soon as the package gets to them in China, you

Eya Narrates Her Experience With Aliexpress Online Shopping

In November 2013, after reading all the posts and lectures by you guys, I decided to give online shopping a try. It was my first. With all the success stories, I went loading my cart with some nice goodies. Being my first attempt I took the advice of a poster Beecee that instructed first timers to start with cheap items.
I shopped, didn't know then that I needed to chat with the sellers, read their reviews before making payments.

I picked from three different sellers and paid almost immediately. Not long after, got notified that my goods have been shipped. Another mail came in stating that delivery date for my goods had been extended to around February 2014. What? Well... I consoled myself that reason could be my choice of free shipping.

I impatiently waited until February ended before going to track my goods, I guess pregnancy just made me lose interest in all the stuff I bought. From tracking, I discovered my goods were supposed to have arrived Nigeria a few weeks earlier. At …

We Talked About The Cause Of Kefee's Death

I was  with my uncle yesterday who is a medical doctor and we got talking about the causes of Kefee's death as released officially. He let me in2 what it is and after making more research on it, i decided 2 share it with U guys as no knowledge is lost and we can learn a thing or two from it.
We lost Kefee Don Momoh last weekend and we can't help but look at the factors surrounding her death.
Remember Kefee was on a long distance trip (14hours) to Chicago and she slumped. How many of you know of young adults dying suddenly after a long distance trip.

In February last year, another famous artist of ours, Goldie, collapsed after a long trip from the United States.

Deep venous thrombosis can definitely lead to lung failure (official cause of death of our dear Branama angel).

Deep venous thrombosis is a blood clot that forms in a vein deep inside a part of the body. It mainly affects the large veins in the lower leg and thigh.


How I Induced My Labor Naturally

How to induce labour naturally? At 39 weeks, there was no sign of labor, another hospital appointment was fixed for the following week. After 4 pregnancies, the Doctors said I won't be induced for any reason. If by 40 weeks I was still pregnant, that I will have to deliver the baby through Caesarean Section.
When I got home I started my research on how to make baby come before that week. I remembered how at 37 weeks, I experimented on something and suddenly I start getting contractions but quickly stopped for fear that the baby might not be due then. Intact, as soon as I discovered I was carrying a baby again? I started reading up on "pregnancy after 4 kids at late thirties".I knew a few things already. I learnt so many things a woman can do to induce labour, some practical, some incredible. I tried a few, nothing worked and was about to give up when

Wish I Had The Courage To Live True To Myself, Not The Life Others Expected

When a nurse questioned some patients on their death bed about any regrets they had or anything they would do differently. Here are the 5 most common regrets they had:

1. I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me. This was the most common regret of all. When people realize that their life is almost over and look back clearly on it, it is easy to see how many dreams have gone unfulfilled. Most people had not honored even a half of their dreams and had to die knowing that it was due to choices they had made, or not made.

2. I wish I didn’t work so hard.
They missed their children’s youth and their partner’s companionship. Women also spoke of this regret. All of the men I nursed deeply regretted spending so much of their lives on the treadmill of a work existence.

3. I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.
Many people suppressed their feelings in order to keep peace with others. As a result, they settled for a mediocre existence an…

See Yourself? Age Is Not On My Side, I Am Not Getting Any Younger

I see lots of women  going to juju houses nowadays (disguised as prayer houses) and it's not funny @ all.  A lot of single girls patronise fetish mallams and prophets in the bid to get husbands! Guess what? the same hands they use in  giving ou that husband, same hand the wahala go take follow am!

Some women @ age 27, 28 become desperate and start forming the habit of "I'm not getting younger" or "age is not on my side" *SMH*. If only you know the implications of rushing into marriage all because age is not on your side or may be your friends have all gotten married!

Vanity: How My Whole Street Converged To Watch A Truck Deliver A Very Large Satellite Dish To A Neighbor :)

I recall my mum telling me about a man in my Neighborhood who became popular for engaging in money rituals just to buy the 80's edition of the Honda Accord, you wouldn't buy that "ca"r for 30k today.I Remember as a kid, my whole street converged to watch a truck deliver a very large satellite dish to my neighbour's house, 2day a dish one tenth that size delivers 5 times the value and is in almost every student hostel room.

 what about the Volkswagen Santana, Mercedes Benz V booth, 505 cocaine, all overtaken by Camry, Honda discussions and Infinity? .... vanity.

The Silver Frame

Fisayo Talabi
It was about five thirty p.m on Friday. Most of her staff had started filing out one by one. The famous RCCG camp program was happening so it was pretty sure there was going to be traffic. In an hour, she was the only one left in the building. It wasn’t that she had any work in particular to do.  In fact, she had more thinking to do than work. She had gotten all the reports she needed and discussed with staff from the Legal department on drafting the necessary contracts she needed towards the new contract they were bidding for from a foreign company. She removed her Jimmy Choo high heels and relaxed in her Leather chair. The picture of her and Lanre in the silver frame on her mahogany desk stared her in the face. That one picture, she couldn’t get rid of, even if she had decided to let him go. Yeah, she had to let him go…because he did not belong to her. He was another woman’s husband… *** Folusho had been really lonely. She had

Dear Wives, Stop Doing These NOW

The simple things wife shld stop doing to their husbands:
Have you ever wondered what your words and actions say to your husband about your love for him?
It is very important for U to consider ur husband’s needs and always guard urself against the use of careless words, attitudes, and actions so that U can get the best of him. Funny yeah?
I asked some of my married friends on our group on BBM “What they think a wife should stop doing if she wants to improve her marriage" and this list is based on some of their responses.

1. Stop thinking that your way is the “right” way. If he does something differently, it does not mean that it’s wrong. When a wife insists on having her own way, she is in essence saying, “I have to be in control.”

2. Don’t put others before your husband. It's not wise when when you put your mother, a friend, or even a child before your spouse. Actually, you take a step (often unintentional) toward isolation in your marriage. If you choose, for example, to

When Your Teenager Views Online Porn, What To Do

Is this a headache banging?I woke up this morning, prayed for all my children and while doing that, something came across my heart like "check their phones today"
The last time I'd checked, all were just pics of their fav celebs like Justin Bieber, One Direction Mercy Johnson, Omotola, Genevieve, Davido etc etc, and the rest were Educational searches. Fast forward just one year of cooling down, feeling good that my kids are still very very innocent.

They have all gone to school this morning, leaving the gadgets carelessly on their not very well laid beds. The first phone I pick is my Twelve year old's, switch on, there's no credit so I recharge. Check Browsing history and what???
Youtube videos about 'IT"
Seriously? I blanked out, felt as light as a peacock feather. My baby? Where did I go wrong? Is it by giving her a phone or by  providing recharge cards?

First, I am trying to search for any software…
