A TURKISH EATERY: CAPITOL CAFE AND RESTAURANT.

I finally made the conscious decision to take my self love journey in developing myself very seriously. My mind and body have been constantly barraged & assaulted by the daily grind of full time and part time jobs. I could actually feel my mind tearing at the edges 😭. I’ve had to deal with relocation of places (which I enjoy a lot! No doubt) and it was always one storm after the other. I had friends advising me to take care of myself to be able to have a stable mind as to what to do.

Then Lo, a fan of Poetess Akosua’s blog reached out to me somewhere in May. Apparently, he is here in Ghana for a short vacation and will soon be going back to the States. I was to choose a place for our casual hang out this July. Tons of places (far and near) came in mind. Eventually, I settled on this enchantment!

To my readers here, if you are looking for a nice hang out place to wine and dine in Accra, look no further than this Turkish eatery -Capitol Cafe and Restaurant.

SEPTEMBER WILL BE LIT – THE BOOK EXCHANGE AFFAIR.

An American novelist, a prolific short story writer, John Cheever, wrote that β€œI can’t write without a reader. It’s precisely like a kiss β€” of course, one can’t do this act alone.” By this, Cheever is telling his readers that the act can’t be done without having the thoughts of a reader in mind.

Last year at Native Bar and Grill. Dorcas Fafali and her Team!

The Book Exchange Affair

For most writers, it’s certainly not about the number of readers we have in mind but the loyalty of our readers. Honestly, I feel bad and suddenly depressed when I see textbooks and story books in a bad state when people feel they have exhausted it’s content and they don’t need to go back to it. My heart bleeds when I see the leaves and torn pages crying to be picked up and kept for the generation to come. I don’t know about you but I get emotional about this.

Not until recently, I found some of my secondary school days’ books and some old pamphlets. These I felt will be needed by someone who is preparing for an exams. I just had to keep it again in my small library.

I have learnt to keep books and old pamphlets for years now. Last year, I made an effort to save some money aside to build my own small library. Now, I feel gratified I did so. My siblings and an aunty who loves reading have found some kind of solace in it. I was motivated to do this by A lady who loves to read.

September came with a new vibe!

Happening live on the 26th September, 2020 at the YMCA RIDGE, (Accra) at exactly 10.00 A.M
Excited about The Book Exchange Affair πŸ’œ

A lady who loves to read and backed by a team unveiled the organization at a meet and greet held as part of the two years anniversary held, November last year.

Readers Truss, I believe is committed to cultivating, igniting and inspiring a habitual reading culture among individuals, families, and other organizations or companies. It is my goal to have a room full of books and to ignite the spirit of reading in my family, some years to come! If you think this goal is awe-inspiring, and you would like us to do this as a team, then, ride along with me as we attend this very lit upcoming event at YMCA, RIDGE (ACCRA). At exactly, 10a.m, on the 26th September, 2020. with other book lovers and Prolific writers.

Remember not to come empty-handed. Rather, bring a Novel or a story book along to exchange with someone. Come prepared because, I bet you will have to go home with new books too!

It’s a September to Remember!!

Book lovers! Three Akosua’s and An Afriyie!

THE ESCAPE – Gomoa Wonderland.

Science says that we seek out nature not only for our physical survival and growth, but because nature is good for our personal and social well-being.

As part my plans to make the most out of a day and reconnect with nature, a thoughtful idea came up. I just had to obey my instincts on that. Three different places, activities and ideas came in mind. My week days after the Covid-19 Lockdown is so packed. Tell you what, I barely have enough time for sleep and taking myself out like I do. My kind of fun may not be as interesting and wild as others would have it.

Judging from my personality and perspective in life, I have come to realize that doing you and what makes you happy is paramount.Things I am always down for and no questions asked:

1. Road Trips Hot coffee and a good conversation Music Shoppings. Food- not just any. (Kenkey) Breakfast for Dinner Naps

Ask me to join you on a Road Trip to a far away land and I will gladly embrace such opportunity.The weekend ended with me booking a tent to sleep under the skies. Crazy as the idea sounds, gave me a little fright!

Gomoa Wonderland is the place to reconnect with nature and people as well. The wonderland is located at Gomoa Eduafo. A 30 minutes drive after Kasoa.

After speaking with Kwabena Oppon Kusi,(an organizer), and booking my tent, I had to pack few items for my weekend trip to this serenity. Surprisingly, I didn’t have difficulties with locating the place. I guess it’s because I’m close by.

On Friday around 4p.m after close of work, I had set off and unpacked in anticipation of the activities lined up for us(myself and other campers I didn’t even know).

I’m that young lady who loves shopping, but I would rather travel the world in one t-shirt than sit in my room and shop for clothes from all over the world.

Boy Oh Boy!

I love to travel.

I follow travel blogs,travel accounts on Facebook and on Instagram.

Seeing people share different stories from all over the world stirs up a lot of excitement in my heart especially from Africa because it is such a beautiful continent.I’m pretty sure you will love to experience the floating jetty with detachable raft. This looks scary but trust me it’s fun; when you lie on the Jetty and observe the serene nature or the man-made lake.

Lounging in the tent under the skies was actually my first time and a wonderful experience.I had booked the tent and a slot for myself before the weekend. Interacting with some of the organizers made me realize this event.The escape started not too long ago and it’s an event done every last weekend of every month. The motive is to bring people together to experience another beautiful serenity in the Central Region.

The lake, which could be said a natural one isn’t so. Rather,it turned out to be a man-made lake. The dame as most call it, has a beautiful view and around it is the Bamboo Grove.

Take me back to secondary school days when fun-fairs, excursions and “Inter-co” was the joy that brought most people from different schools together as a form of socialization. We can’t forget times of indoor and outdoor games too.

Personally, having a lot of fun like people do, is not in my good books. However, connecting with nature and enjoying the breeze of the sea makes me happy. As a blogger, doing this ignites a refreshing spirit in me to carry on for the rest of the days ahead!

Call me a Scrabble lover and a lover of some Ghanaian board games like Ludu, oware and playing of “Jamies-to-you” (Cards).The fun didn’t end there. On Saturday evening, there was a bonfire night. Coupled with Jungle Rave at the Bamboo Grove. This was done with most people singing to Ghanaian songs, dancing and sitting close to the fire. It was a sight to behold- trust me.

Food was so not a problem for us. The organizers made them available and none had a problem with the kind they provided for us. Breakfast, lunch, and supper was just perfect!Ask Teggtag about the wonderland Coconut mixes!!!

Couldn’t get enough of everything the wonderland had.You should join me next time on this road trip to if not another place of serenity, then in September, we will go back to the Wonderland and make it a “Ritual” Retreat!

Gomoa Wonderland!☺️
