I didn't know good quality pasta is hard to come by in Nigeria. This is something I should have in mind for future visits.

However if you are a spaghetti enthusiast and to avoid being frustrated by poor quality products in the market, just make your own home made pasta. It is dead easy.

Just mix four eggs with about 300g flour bit by bit into a dough. Kneed properly, wrap in plastic, leave for about 10 minutes. You may add one egg yolk just to up the quality.

If you have a spaghetti making machine, the same you use for chin chin, use to cut out the dough or use a rolling pin to flatten out and cut into spaghetti or any pasta shape and cook in boiling water as you would spaghetti or leave to dry in the sun. That is spaghetti.

This is a high quality home made spaghetti and the taste is out of this world.

Get out of my mind! grin

I legit was telling someone today about how easy and healthier homemade pasta is...seen it made hundreds of times on TV
Thanks a lot. I might dare to try it.
Does it need salt?

All Pasta products of Dangote are no-go area for me.

In the first month of my service year in the north, I visited the market to stock up my kitchen because my PPA wá very far from the main town. So among other provisions I decided to buy noodles at leat a carton.

I noticed Dangote noodles was quite popular in the north and I decided to give it a trial. Mumu me! I bought one full carton of the super pack embarassed( I think it contains 40 pieces or thereabouts)

Choi! Only God knows who the quality control officer who certified that Dangote noodles and it's seasoning okay for consumption. The taste was horrible. I cooked 2 pieces and added sardine, I just couldn't swallow past two spoons. I eventually called some students and gave them( I served in a boarding school) . Trust me, they devoured the whole thing.

I couldn't summon courage to cook out of the remaining noodles. 2 days to my passing out, I called the children of 3 non-teaching staff that stay close to corpers lodge and shared the noodles amongst them while I was packing my Kaya. The way their parents kept on Thanking me ehn, u will think I just handed their kids American visa.

I don't know if Dangote noodles has been improved on now, but about 5 years ago it was just horrible. And yes, the spaghetti is always sticky and soggy no matter how well u try to prepare it.

grin grin grin

I'm afraid to give them a second chance gan

To make spaghetti less or non sticky, allow water to boil, add salt to taste, add one soup spoon of preferred oil - vegetable oil, sunflower oil, groundnut oil etc. I prefer extra virgin olive oil. Then introduce spaghetti whole. DON'T BREAK.

To prevent sogginess, cook half way; that is half done or quarter done. Drain water away with a strain, add a bit of the vegetable oil again and mix then set aside.

Put together your other ingredients in the pan and finally add the spaghetti. Toss the frying pan or wok to mix the spaghetti instead of using a spoon. It will come out less sticky and less soggy.

Believe me, when it comes to Dangote pasta, it's not about how you cook it, it's just the brand sad
Their macaroni texture is the worst! There's this mleh! about it

You didnt read my message to understand.

I asked for a proof (original I.D card) of school you work with your name matching your bank name. What you sent is different. In as much as I would like to help, you are sending a fake / irrelevant document.



You don't have to make someone feel little just because you want to help them.
You either choose to trust their word that they're being honest and help or look away. Not asking them to provide this and that or reading and ignoring their messages.
It is unkind and disrespectful.

Good morning everybody I haven’t been able to come online for a long time cos a lot it’s happening right now, my husband people are forcing me to give my baby to my co wife cos they have said we have many children and we should help and give them one , my husband agreed but I have refused to give my baby away to her I told them my sister in law also has 7 children and why can’t she give them one of her children and why just me , everybody in the family are against me and they are not talking to me. She is now treating me badly reminding me that it’s her house and I should leave . I keep calm and watching everything like a fool but I am not a fool , I decided After this quarantine I will pack my things and kids and leave for my sister place until I get my own place and hubby can join us if he likes

I don't know how this suggestion may seem, but how about you suggesting they leave your baby for you, after you have weaned her and rested, you can carry another pregnancy for them, this time around, everyone will have it in mind from the beginning that the baby will be theirs...like a surrogate, but your husband will be the one to get you pregnant
How about that? To let peace reign and bring joy to a couple

I was inspired to pour out my heart after reading this thread (https://www.nairaland.com/5780636/lost-job-girlfriend-dumped-me) by Tankunland .


I really don't know how to begin, as I'm currently typing with tears in my eyes while contemplating suicide. I had to create this new account in order to post this, because I'm active on my main account and a few nairalanders have my mobile contact.

I'm the only child of my mother, raises by her alone. My dad left when I was very young and remarried. All my life mother have been my king and I love her respect her alot.

I graduated 4 years ago and went for NYSC. Started job hunting and sent CVs to so many places, written several tests and got invited for interviews but somehow I never get called. I have so many people promise me a job only for them to stop picking my calls, or they will pick and promise to call back, yet no one calls.

I retired to helping my mom in her shop, while applying for jobs and download YouTube videos at night to learn a skill, but it has been difficult for me since my mom operates a mini bar and restaurant. I go to the shop every morning, I wash the plates, clean the places, fetch water and attend to customers.

My mom is aging and I understand. As at last year she started becoming irritated with anything I do, she finds fault in the smallest thing I do. She will scream at me in public and hull insults at me. I told early last year to let me go to Lagos and join some friends, so that I can actively job hunt but she refused.

She insisted that I should be applying and managing the beer parlour. This beer parlour business does not give me anytime to develop myself because I go to shop Monday-Sunday, morning till night 9pm upwards. And I feel very weak whenever I return home, so I will just sleep off.

I do not have any social life, as I do not have the luxury of time to mingle with friends, I do not even have a girlfriend because I understand that it can be time demanding.

Today after cleaning the shop as usual and fetching water, I told my mom that I need to go home and feed the dogs and also fetch water at home she agreed. It wasn't up to 30 minutes she called me on the phone and said I left her to be suffering in the shop. I was surprised and I replied "mom I just left & I told you what i was going to do at home". She yelled.

I had to end the call, out off the fire I already set for the dog food and dashed back to the shop. On reaching there she started yelling and cursing me, saying I'm very lazy. I felt very sad and said mom but I just left here now, why are you disgracing me in this public place?

She kept yelling, people gathered and she took a knife saying she will kill me. I couldn't utter a word, I cried like a baby and left the shop, came back home. I took my bath, then she came home and started cursing me, cursing my father (that I'm irresponsible like him) that God will punish me.

I kept crying, neighbors had to rush in. She seized my keys and went out with it.

The reason I decided to type this information here today is because this is not the first nor second time that this is happening. All the people that live around my house can testify that o don't do anything stupid, I don't smoke, o don't womanize, I don't steal, I don't disrespect people, I only mind my business and try to see that I do the right things.

But my mom keeps piling pressure on me and telling me that I'm the reason why her life is like this, that she regrets giving bet to me, she says so many words to me. Most times I cry and ask God to just take my life if what I'm doing is not enough.

I don't know what to do, I didn't ask to be born, I wish I have siblings from her, I'm really loosing my mind. I know I'm doing my best, but to my mom I'm not doing anything, yet she refuses to let me go and hustle.

I know suicide is not the way and it is what cowards do, but I'm really tired, I'm drained emotionally, I love her and I really want to make her proud and happy. But nothing seems to be working well for me.

Please someone with similar experience, or someone that understands what I have written up there, please help me, I'm dieing inside, I don't what to do or how to manage this anymore. I think of taking my life but I know it is not the right thing to do.

Please cry

Your mum is trying to keep you caged,but you have to take your independence by force.
She's your mum but you have the right to live and find your own path in life.

Since your mother does not appreciate your efforts, and the jobs you want are not forthcoming, go out and look for those menial jobs that you think are below your standard.
Even if you don't like the job and the pay is low, accept them, it'll pave way for bigger jobs and avoid waste of time.
It'll also give you a sense of independence, worth and something or somewhere to look forward to. You'll begin to feel needed and useful.
Also, your mum will begin to respect you when she does not get to see you all the time.

Hello Everyone.
I was to update yesterday and I opened the thread and saw a warzone. And I was confused. Please make we take am easy o.

@Oyoolima I am doing fine. The pain is easing and i don't feel that much anger anymore.

@ Bukatyne,. Fountainofyouth, Graxie, Merakhi, and all of all of I am still fine. smiley I appreciate you all.

@ Crackhuas take am easy and I appreciate your advice as well smiley

Hubby and I:

We had a lengthy and intense conversation cos I need answers. I had alot of why's.

It's so lengthy, but there was a lot of crying from both of us, regrets, anger and we just let it out.
And alot of pleading from his end.

At the end he said he wants his marriage to work and don't want to lose me.If only I will give him a chance, he will prove to me how sorry he is and make me happy again.

He said if I want a separate account he is willing to do that but he is scared of me leaving him.

He couldn't explain why it happened but said he is sorry for the betrayal and pain he caused me and for making me so unhappy. And he wants to make it right by me. He said Aunty will never bother me again and he will not bring up anything about the child until I am ready and comfortable talking about the child and his welfare and we will go by what I want regarding the child.

I told him I have heard. But I really want to be alone for a while and get back my sanity.
Told him I am still going to proceed for a leave once the lockdown is over and I won't be staying in town , I will be spending the leave at my brother's. He said that means he will take a leave too and he will inform my brother we are coming together to stay at at his place. I told him I want to go alone and that's the one he is raising face for now. Has been sulking since yesterday and funny, he is making calls and telling his friends we are travelling to see my people for a month after the lockdown.

He said if closing the joint account will make me happy, he is ok with it. And that i never mentioned going back for further studies but if that is what I want to do it's stilll ok .


Last night he asked me if we can start the adoption process immediately and what sex we would go for. I told him I can only talk about that after my leave.

He also spoke about the surrogacy agency we contacted. He asked if I can hold on from school since I have a Masters and we channel the money for the surrogacy since I said the project we are working on should be on hold.

I told him I can only give him a feedback at the end of my leave.

Thank you all once again for checking on me and for all the advice and prayers.


@bukatyne, you see ( bolded) what I was trying to make you understand earlier? Instead, you came at me like it was a debate contest in which you must win at all cost.

Next time, try to put yourself in the victim's shoes before dishing out insensitive advice.
Thank you.
