Whats this I hear about Nigeria Launching its communication Satellite by China? Nigerian Communication Satellite NIGCOMSAT is expected to offer broadcasting and internet services for Africa!! :o I felt so proud and thrilled. But just when I was about putting on my dancing shoes. I started reading and hearing that foreign critics were of the view that "the majority Nigerian population live in poverty and that the internet can be made redundant by the simple fact that electricity is sporadic at best. They said that the government should rather spend all this money on power, job creation and basic public services." >:( >:( >:(

I laughed thinking this is just pure jelousy. Thoguh I began playing doubtful games with my mind thinking:

*** if China can beat 21 bidders in 2004 for a $311 millon handed by Nigeria to launch the satelite, is Nigeria really having extreeeemeeee poverty?
*** The satellite said to be lofted by a Long March 3-B rocket will reach its ultimate location at a later date this year and to remain operative for 15years. Will it really be without flaws for  full 15years? :-\

All for positivity thoughts I deem it to be another bold step for Nigerias communication revolution. Moreso, in Africa Nigeria seems to be the fastest growing country when it comes to technology.....ie (how fast and crazily the use of mobile phones grew)!!!!
 
What are our odds against even or vice versa on this lauched communication satellite? NIGCOMSAT?

Though my very rebellious "pro-black" cousin didnt have worries like mine. Instead he was more flushed out that the name NIGCOMSAT does his head in. He said why should the the abbreviation be "NIG".....comsat. It felt far too "racial" to him lol, lol, lol Young mindz.......mhmm one man food na another mans poison!

Cooking Forum / HAVE A LOOK......I COOKED THIS AND THAT!!!!
« on: April 10, 2008, 08:45:15 PM »
Ok, something fresh! Members...........

I was just sitting when I received a jokey picture message of my favourite soup eaten by aunt. Also someone close to me makes a big fuss and is very picky on food. So rarely, when I buy out, I first take a picture of it and message this along: this is what they have, would you like to eat it?

I know most of you have camera phones and digital cameras...............so get posting. Post your kodak moments on food!!!!

Simply take a picture of the best succulent meal you prepared, or what you enjoy preparing and eating.

I will soon post my picture of the best meal I prepared.

I dont know how far true this is.......but sounds like it has an element of truth in it and has been submitted that,.............
"Nigeria has become a dumping ground for banned drugs ; also the business for production of banned drugs is blooming. Plz make sure that u buy drugs only if prescribed by a doctor(Also, ask which company manufactures it, this would help to ensure that u get what is prescribed at the Drug Store) and that also from a reputed drug store. Not many people know about these banned drugs and consume them causing a lot of damage to themselves."

chit-chat / MOST DIFFICULT HELD CONVERSATIONS (WATS URS?)!!!!!
« on: June 28, 2004, 05:08:10 PM »
Hi everyone.
Not 2 waist ur time, I just wanted 2 ask & perphaps 2 know how u go about most difficult held conversation without the second party feelin hurt!

Ok my freind asked if she cud die her hair & I told her dat Islam permits a person 2 die his/her hair aslong as its not black. She got her hair dyed in beige stricks wit a touch of PINK & styled it. She came home & asked me wat I taut about it...............(I simply replied that it didnt look nice at all) I didnt know where I went wrong she refused tlkin 2 me 4 3days. Am very unfront & straight, wen ppl want my view on a thing I say it point blank but even wen dey demselve know dat am sayin d truth dey still feel upset. Of recent I came 2beleive dat truth hurts (she laffs)

A cousin asked me of how she cud end her relationship wit a guy she neva liked but due 2 pity of how he was fallin head ova heels 4 her she went wit his flow. Even though I hardly like gettin in 2 dis kinda discussions, I told her 2 simply tell him 2 meet her up & tell him she aint interested anymore & am sure a man of worth is neva afraid 2 let go & he will accept it & move on. She said I had no heart of pity @ all, infact it turned out in2  huge argument wit d guy. But I taut she wanted d dude outta her life! Besides why is it hard 4 d guy 2 accept wat she decides & move on. So wats d best way 2 sweep dude/gul off ur shouldaz witout him/her feelin hurt?

I also witnessed where someone was tryin 2 convince another gul not 2 marry d guy she intended 2 cus he was d definition of a freak & she said her freind was juss jelous!

My lil nephew drew a pic of sum cartoony stuff & asked 4 my opinion. I creditedddddddd d drawin sayin it was absolutely perfect (as if) but added sumthin like "sweetie mayb if u make d eye smaller & paint d gul in pink it will me a gorgeous paintin. She went off 2 her mum cryin sayin I made it sound as if she drew a monster (I was totally gob smacked). She wanted my opinion I gave it 2 her.

A freind once confronted me yrs bck......2 inform me of something big, d fear d emotion, d uneasiness was written all ova d persons face. It took d person almost an hr 2 inform me dat someone dear 2 me passed away d night b/4. Since dat day I formed dis kinda of hatred 2wards d person who informed me about d death. I didnt even like 2 c site of d person not even his voice because it suddenly puts me in a state of shock & fear. It took me days 2 accept d truth. D person I hated wit a passion told me dat informin me about d death of d deceased was d most DIFFICULT thing dat he eva had 2 go thru 2 utter!

U wan2 tell ur granny dat wat she wants aint wat u want , so how u gonna tell her witout her thinkin................children of nowadays r so bloody unfront?

Typical xmaple. (Hafsy) sewed me a hausa dress.........d material was beautiful & all. She sent it 2 me & afta a couple of days rang 2 ask me if I liked it, I said I did like d material but I wasnt feelin 2 style. D dress was 2 tight, one can hardly breath in it & d skirt was 2 cut up & tight. Hafsy refused 2 ansa my fone calls 4 like 3wks!

Now u wan2 tell ur freind dat she shud stop duin wat u think is bad......no matta wat u tell her, even if its in a nicest way eva, her face reaction will give u dat "who do u think u r 2 tell me wats ryt"

A gul or a guy wan2 know things bout u. But u feel like u dnt like ppl gettin up close & personal wit u. U feel that wat remains ur business shud remain ur sole business. Wat concerns u, concerns u alone. So u tell him/her dat u wish not 2 tell dem nothing bout u. D second party gets totally upset! I taut one has a right 2 privacy & a right 2 hav his or her things left personal no matta wat!

U hav dis gul or guy in ur class & dey hav dis BADDDDDD SMELL. Mayb dey dnt wash up or brush........or ur boyfreind/gulfreind stinks how can u tell dem 2 wash up?

So hav u eva had a difficult conversations, tryin to convince someone of something, knowing that it will hurt? How do u go about it? Or wat was d best way 2 deal wit d scenarios I gave?

Islam / WAT DOES ISLAM REALLY SAY ABOUT TAKING PICTURES?
« on: June 28, 2004, 01:12:35 AM »
Salaamz brothaz 'n' sistaz.
I wanted to bring forth this discussion, probably we can share our views on this or perharps those wit an insight knowledge can help shed some light.

I have read & heard about discussions on taking pictures. Alot of ppl say its haram, some say its OK! whilst others said it is fine to take photo shots only if you do not display them where you pray. Some ulamaz, moulanah & sheiks have put up discussions concluding that taking pictures is completely haram, others said its not, whereas some sheiks remained  inconclusive meaning (Allah wa'alam).  I checked about 3 websites in relation to dis issue. However only one opposed 2 takin pics & two of d weblinks I visited provided dat it was ok to take pictures only 4 memoir purposes. From d little I know which was directly from a hadith source, & am sure alot of u know dat as well that drawing anything with a form of life is strictly haram because no human can put life in2 it xcept Allah subhana wata'ala.

Contrariwise, I got in2 a more dauting state, when I was heading out of my bedroom door & I got a glimpse of myself in the mirrow, I was like, "Hang on"........a mirrow shows a persons image & so does pictures. The only difference is u can see ur movements in mirrorz but u r still in photos. Thou ur image is in both. So if pics r haram does it equally becomes haram 2 look @ mirrors? Moreso, some Sheiks stated that wearin clothes with printed images of any form of life weda humans or animals or  cartoony characters to pray is haram. That! I had no doubt @ all.........so amongs my fave shirt of cartoon charactaz, my (winnie d pooh ) shirt was from dat day onwards neva worn unda my jibbah durin prayaz.(laffs)

Personally, I do not think taking pictures r haram though am absolutely not sure of myself but I was thinking photos are not haram cos its a reflection of reality not imitating reality!
Meanwhile I remain a lil confused & wud like those dat r interested & know bout this 2 kindly give us highlights.

Jazakallah Khair.
May Allah accept our Maafs & Grant us many more Hidayats
Ma'assalaam
