Explorers:
Same day, we visited one place called Amusement park.

A boat ride with my younger sister and later visited the park's restaurant.

Took jollof rice with chicken and GoldSpot drink.

We paid in coins, can still remember small this second and last trip to Lagos.

From here, we visited kingsway that has a door that open itself and escalator stairs that moves up and down.

At night, we went to see planes at MMA(since then ive never beem to airport).

Lost the pictures to water years later, had to dry these ones then sef(Check the second photo).

Travel back to Ondo second day.

About this picture:

Goldspot was the zing thing cheesy

That black bottle was the maltina bottle design then (my mum used to sell those)

Why do I have this feeling that the cap was everything. I suspect you'd have cried a lagoon if your mum only bought that cap for your sister and cousin alone grin

Maybe some Lagos Nairalanders can recognize this place.


The first pic looks like apapa wharf while the second one looks like ijora bridge in the background..not so sure though cos the pic isn't so clear.

Second time in Lagos.

We visited another beach, don't know exactly.

Myself, my younger sister(mum of 2 now) and my Cousin.

I was told then that Sea and lagoon (Okun&Osa) are enemies.

Like one is dirty, one is clean, one is Evil and the other is good.

If you throw dirt into the Sea, it will throw it back or come drop it in your house.

If you bottle both lagoon and Sea water in same bottle, they will fight till they burst the bottle and the Sea water will flow back no matter how far. grin



We fetched a bottle of the salt water from here back to Ondo with Seashells too.

Used them to decorate shelf for years.

The last time i saw beach, 1989.
i tried that experiment in 2018 while on leave. Fake lol

my opinion of the pictures are as follows:

1. explorers no be small boy again oh, a man of 36 years now wow.

and this little kid now has his own kid and a wife. and his own wife that he would bang eternally without paying a dime after action.

my own junior brother was a regular patron of these olosho houses from auchi to Kano, to pH all the ASHAWO calls him customer, the night he slept with his wife he brought out his wallet to pay her, then he remembered he is now a married man and can bang whenever without paying again.

2. explorers was not born handsome, sorry to say this your sisters are not too beautiful too, but they are beautiful.

3. explorers is from a middle class family, only few families visited bar beach back then. his mum( peace be upon her) was a Christian and a beautiful woman, my guess is that she is a housewives a trader or a schoolteacher, maybe they went to visit their daddy who was transferred there to work in the civil service.

4. the love of knowledge is within the family, look at the lady with eye glasses, she looks scholarly , she must have given explorers a million home lessons.
explorers is this shy type, he was shy. books was his best friend, he was a weak kid growing up, his mates would beat him.

explorers suck lips Wella
I'm sorry did anyone asked for all these shalaye

Your opinion is actually very silly and obnoxious. Why say he wasn't born handsome and his sisters are not that beautiful? Sometimes just shove your opinions up your as*
