The Nigerian Lady & The Bouquet of Flowers

Okay. I'm supposed to have posted this on Vals day but I guess it still isn't a bad idea to view it even after the lovey dovey season.

Of what relevance is a bouquet of flowers to a Nigerian lady? Just watch this funny video and add your own comments.

Olówó said...

LMAO! I just forwarded this to my friends. The ladies make a good point: flowers wither away and you want your love to last a lifetime. Besides, flowers make me sneeze.

lol-- my naija sistas are funny.
as for me, I loved getting flowers on my birthday and just because(thinking of you flowers), it also includes a box of chocolate and they are the kind that comes in a vase. different colored roses.(pretty)

As a matter of fact, ladies I work with(in America) love getting flowers at work.they can display it on their desk and every one can ooh and aah about how pretty they are. until they die.

No, i do not like to get flowers on valentine's day. Any other day but valentine's because I like surprises and valentine's day is so overated.

@ifeoluwa…LOL@ ‘until they die’. True. I believe you. Val is so overated.

@Temite…shey? Youknowwhatamsayin’?

@Omosewa...that cracked me up too!

@Oyin…I know you are the only 'akata' on board. I’d wholeheartedly send you thousands of roses to woo you. lol. Oh…thank God we have plenty candles in Naija. Thanks to inspiration from NEPA.

OluwaDee said...

I dont know if I like flowers o. I have never received one.

Olówó said...

Freal, they make me sneeze. I have allergies

Parakeet said...

Wow...this is such a coincidence. I was still discussing flowers with someone the other day and he had the same views. I love flowers. I always have. I was the envy of my colleagues when I got red roses delivered to me last Friday. I guess its a Western thing.

Afronuts said...

@Oluwadee...lol. you don't know? Haba, Rabi must have had a tough time deciding what to give u

@Olowo...Come to think of it, don't some oyinbo peeps too have allergies? Some of them must hate flowers too!

@Parakeet...you love flowers? wow! you've been akatarized! lol

Vera Ezimora said...

LOL!! What is up with the cake??? Will she eat the cake by herself?

Well, personally, I'll appreciate a bouquet of flowers. Why not??? It's Valentine's Day. What I wanna do on Valentine's Day is spend time with my darling and have a fun day. That's what I'd rather do.

Afrobabe said...

I love flowers and appreciate them....but it would look better for both of us if the flowers are accompanied by a gold chain or something....kilode??flower kuh...

doug said...

lol....hilarious! Nigerian women are very "practical". And what are flowers to such a woman huh? LOL

Writefreak said...

I love flowers, i love them when my hubby sends them to me...part of the things he gave me on valentine's day was a vase that had 9 roses in it, i loved it and i still have them in our living room...other gifts are welcome too...
Me i am a mushy human being anyways!

This looked staged o Neye. Thanks for your comment on my blog. BTW, you no show us wetin happen for ya house on V-day o

Afronuts said...

@Vera…hmmm. Seriously? Wow.

@Afrobabe…Ha! I was expecting this kind of reply from you! lol
@doug…I’m telling you. They hate vegetables.

@writefreak…man. It seems once naija women leave the country, their desires for flowers suddenly becomes…well, erm desirable?

@Standtall…Cynic. It wasn’t staged jo. Do I look like a person who would waste time going round staging stuff like this? Haba. You dint even notice that I caught many of them unawares. And what happened in my house on V-day is too graphic for this blog.
