God bless you too.
After that other thread, I moved on, never even noticed your username not to talk of remembering it. Yesterday, I was looking for a random someone to send the token to and saw a poster’s comment on another thread and it struck me. I dug deeper into the poster’s history and found out it was the same person I had a chat with a few weeks ago. To me, that was a sign God wanted the token to go to you.
Work hard and pray hard, just remember that whatever God has for you will come to you, that is what I have seen here. Best wishes!

Awaiting your response but I have to log out soon. Looks like you’re having internet issues?
He can send it later in the day in a couple of hours after I confirm your surname initial.
|Art, Graphics & Video / Re: What Kind Of Packaging Box Do You Need. by MMotimo: 7:29am On Sep 19|
Does your surname start with O?
|Art, Graphics & Video / Re: What Kind Of Packaging Box Do You Need. by MMotimo: 7:24am On Sep 19|
He wants to know if your surname starts with O?
|Art, Graphics & Video / Re: What Kind Of Packaging Box Do You Need. by MMotimo: 7:23am On Sep 19|
Last time (different thread) I asked you what you sent to that other fellow, it was because I was impressed by your gesture and wanted to double whatever you sent him. Hopefully, what you get now beats that double. Keep pushing, God will not shame you.

I have a token for you if you are able to provide your account number, I don’t want to do PM. If you’re not able without PM, I understand.

I saw this Omoluabi music video on @mrmacaroni1’s IG page. I am dedicating these lyrics to all the hardworking men on here:
Shout out to the ones wey dey run things
Behind the scenes dem no dey see you
You dey work, you dey try, you dey make sure say everything go dey okay
Tuale we dey hail you, we say Oluwa no go shame you
O se rere la fi n pon e le o - You have done well, that is why we are praising you
Omuluabi se rere o tun . . . . . . (don’t know the words here )
You are doing well o, my brother
Eku ise, o se daadaa, o se daadaa. Omuluabi se daadaa - Well done, you did good
Mo lo se daadaa, o se daadaa - I say you have done well

But I didn’t say “most,” I said “top.” From spyder’s photo, safe to say there are imported doors that do well in Naija climate even after many years. Don’t get me wrong, I agree you can get anything in Naija for a price but I also know that typically (save for some very few exceptions), that means an imported version of that product and it’s going to cost significantly more because it’s imported. Reason why some folks brave the rigours of importation themselves.

The problem with these arguments is when folks start to add salt and pepper and fail to compare apples to apples. It’s okay to have a bias, heck, we all do for whatever reason but let’s remain factual in these conversations. As adults, these displays of opinions should be wrapped with facts, it’s juvenile to misrepresent.
This front door pic is from 2014 not 2021. Maybe the door still looks like this, maybe not since there are no time stamps on photos but we can all agree that frame on the floor has not stood there for the last 7 years and that plant by the fence has not looked exactly the same for the last 7 years. Facts matter! As do fair arguments.

Moving onto my own bias with this imported vs local topic:
Nigeria’s manufacturing industries, for the most part, with very few exceptions, are not where they ought to be. They have simply not made the progress they should have made when you consider when they started. This is not restricted to building construction alone, it encompasses every facet, even common biscuits, detergent, dish washing soap, bathing soap, etc. While quality standards continue to improve abroad, ours have not made progress or they have lost what progress they made in the past. Whose fault is that? Topic for another day.
Of course, importation is one thing, installation is another. For a lot of people who buy from abroad, the tears come if they can’t get a professional that will provide seamless, clean, finishing so that the material actually does looks like it should. That risk is enough to convince most people to not bother with importing, even when they can afford to.
A lot of the top interior decorators in the country import finishings. As the naira has continued to decline and importation has led to higher costs for the customers, some have started to explore locally produced goods for certain (not all ) finishing materials but with their own stringent quality control processes so that the local manufacturers don’t spoil their reputation. Those top designers also buy imported doors from Naija based suppliers. If you can get something at an affordable price from abroad, go for it but make sure you have the right professionals to install it.
With regards to the RR windshield, there’s no way the £1200 one is the mate of the #25k one. For £1200, I assume that is not an after market part i.e. it’s a part made specifically for that model VIN by the vehicle manufacturer. I assume UK would be similar to the US where for a part like that, the part is sourced based on the VIN and would have all functionalities of a windshield made for that specific VIN. Functionalities could include rain sensor to activate the wiper automatically once it starts to drizzle, visuals on the windshield from the dashboard, etc. Yes, £1200 is a lot and it’s okay to go for a cheaper option but we can’t pretend we are getting the exact same thing. £1200 to #25k is not comparing apples to apples. I am sure the UK also has after market windshields that would be a lot cheaper than £1200.

Thanks for all the information
We hope to do a tour of the Nordic countries at some point and so, I was curious.

This is not for the OP, I wish her nothing but the best. These tips are for young people out there. A stitch in time saves nine .
Value yourself, build your self esteem, never be desperate with/for any man.
From an early age, have a vision of your independent self doing well without a romantic partner so that you don’t spend your life chasing a man (or men) that has lost interest. You can be single, successful and happy. Marriage would just be jara.
Get as much education and/or blue collar training as you can. Build yourself up before jumping to marriage.
Learn about finances, how to budget, how to plan, how and when to spend wisely, how to save and invest.
Don’t go and get pregnant in poverty, do your suffering alone, not with innocent kids.
Never stop looking good, remember that poverty and stress will age you real fast. Do the absolute best you can with what you can afford.
KIDS ARE EXPENSIVE
Have a sound plan for your future and stick to it. Sex is not worth future years of poverty induced lost dreams and frustrations. Don’t end up using money for your GRE, your master’s, your trade/business to buy diapers and baby food for an unplanned pregnancy.
Beware of girls that are willing to shirk family planning/contraception. You may already be targeted to become a baby daddy, whether you like it or not. Some girls are simply looking to hook somebody, anybody, rich or poor, ready or not.
If you did not intend marriage, don’t be forced to accept a baby mama to move in with you. Consensual sex is just that, don’t be railroaded into marriage.
If you are still struggling, flee from girls that are ready to get pregnant and “manage with you.” Let her manage without adding extra mouths to your already lean budget. A girl that is soaking gari with you and getting pregnant in poverty is not likely to be an asset.
Don’t sleep with a girl you cannot marry, one time is all it takes to become an involuntary baby daddy, forever yoked to a girl you may not respect nor like.
KIDS ARE EXPENSIVE
Never stop praying

For someone living in a country where the language of instruction is not English, you write very well. How did you learn to write in fluent English?
For a tourist visiting only Helsinki, what would you say are the top 3 to 5 tourist attractions in that city that must be seen?
Is there any savoury food native to Finland that is popular with foreigners?

I don’t understand the part about helping him to the detriment of your business. Why would you do that when he ran away before ? Your business/finances are very, very important and you need good money to raise your kid well, especially in today’s Nigeria.
If your business completely runs down because of him, do you have a solid plan B? Reminder that promises from someone that already absconded once is not a plan.
|Properties / Re: General Topic Thread-To Discuss Anything And Everything in Building Construction by MMotimo: 3:12am On Aug 17|
Men with wicked mouths LOL but I salute your patience and tolerance.
I don’t think it would be easy for a thread filled with women to be so accommodating for so long. Una don try. I know there’s a lot more that could be said about the gentleman but you have spoken with restraint.
PB, why do I think you’re female?
Me sef come in peace
|Family / Re: Everything You Said by MMotimo: 2:37am On Aug 16|
I think your biggest problem is that you have lost all sense of self worth. You don’t believe you are anything, you’ve allowed yourself to be beaten down to nothing and you have given up on yourself. It would be interesting to know your childhood background, I suspect this constant need for male validation is something that developed in your psyche before you even matured.
How can you explain leaving one man and jumping into pregnancy with a new man shortly after when you are still struggling to take care of the kids you brought into the world The first guy was a liability to you and did not “put a ring on it” yet you were willing to start a new cycle with a new online moniker just like that! That person sexually molesting your kid is a testament to your poor decision-making yet you are not naming the pedophile, you’re more concerned about finding yet another new man. Your solution to your challenges is to find a man, any man, to come to your rescue.
Another problem you have is that you have become comfortable with poverty and lack so even when you see money, you cannot make rational decisions to use the money wisely and plan for a smoother tomorrow.
I don’t want to be harsh because your mental state is fragile but even at that, you are very cunning. You are still talking about baby face and seeking to attract a new man, even after everything! Do you think the men that are coming after you are stupid? You think it’s because of your baby face? No, hun! You are attracting predators whose job it is to seek prey and nothing spells prey to an abuser like prey that has been tried and certified through past cycles of domestic abuse and is still asking for more. Simply put, you are an abuser’s dream come true. You need to do a lot of work on your self esteem/worth before even thinking of another man. You would do well to stop thinking of yourself as some sort of Marilyn Monroe, you have real problems to deal with. Even now, it would be no surprise that you still have botrix on reserve as plan B.
I think the best solution for you would be a benefactor that is able to keep you on a leash - make all decisions (accommodation, work, school, etc) for you and your kids, manage your money for you and above all, keep you away from men until you are capable of making rational decisions. In some countries, it’s a legal arrangement described as a conservatorship. In Naija, let’s just say you need an angel, preferably female, not another romantic entanglement. Maybe there are people on Nairaland that can help you because right now, you’re on a path of self destruction and you seriously need help to focus.
