From Lagos To Toronto - Follow My Canadian Hustle by nahinbdis: 8:11pm On Dec 27, 2018
So I finally decided to activate my Canadian Permanent Residency and move to Canada. I will be sharing my journey here, particularly how I find the transition and settle. Some key points to note:

1. No personal questions please. I will try to answer as many questions as I can

2. You are required to have a specific sum (POF) (depending on your family size) to migrate to Canada under the Express Entry programme. However, I am not willing to spend my precious savings, so I will be limiting my drawing from my savings to $2,000 CAD, aside ticket costs and the one week Airbnb stay I have already paid for. All other expenses will be from money earned in Canada... so lets see how that goes.

3. I believe in the dignity of labour, so watch out for the legal stuff I will do to make an enjoyable living.

The things I will miss... FAMILY!!! Leaving family is hard! Lots of free-flowing tears... but this is a sacrifice that must be made. Goals in view.

Then I will miss the CHAOS of Nigeria. Roadside and traffic merchants... the number 3 enemy of ecommerce in Nigeria (discuss for another day) Iya Basira abi Calabar Kitchen. Happy to miss Danfo, Okada and Lagos traffic! Will not miss my job at all! Resigned from a job that pays over N500k monthly...abeg I no do again grin cheesy

MMIA has improved a lot! And all those stories of bribery/extortion by airport officials are exaggerated. Lots of Happy Christmas from expectant officials of course, but just keep a smiling but puzzled look (like ayam not understanding what you mean cheesy cheesy) and you will pass. The thing is that they cannot openly demand for a bribe, so yours is ensure you do not unnecessarily cower. tongue

And yes! The toilets at the airport are clean! The departure side though; after you have cleared customs and immigration. Did not check the other side.

No tissue or towels sha... but still I will give a pass mark!

Cos, its one of the cheapest African airlines on intercontinental route. The cheapest is between SAA and ET. Some routes are cheaper on ET, others are on SAA. Hence, expect Nigerians to pack themselves full on the Lagos outbound flight to Addis Ababa

View of Addis Ababa from the skies. You do not want to see what Lagos looks like at night from the air.
