The Dome Abuja experience (Dinner and Bowling)

It was my birthday on Saturday and I'm so thankful to God for keeping me to see another birthday. A big thank you to every that reached out to celebrate me, I love you so much. So for my birthday, I wanted to do something fun with my friends. I have wanted to visit dome for a very long time and I figured my birthday is a perfect opportunity to check it out.

The Summit Restaurant
To have the dome experience, we started with dinner at the summit restaurant. The ambience of the restaurant was perfect, we decided to sit out on the patio which had a view of the beautiful pool. The variety of the menu was not as interesting as I hoped for a restaurant of that calibre. I was very hungry so I decided to go with one of their pasta dishes. The wait time for the meal was about 20 minutes, we almost finished our drinks before the meals came. The mojito was very decent, I love the taste of mint. 

The food
Pasta Italian N3,500
The pasta dish was made with spaghetti, cherry tomatoes and bacon cooked in white sauce and top with some chilli to give it a spicy kick. I felt a bit nostalgic when I tasted the pasta, it took me back to the olive garden restaurant in the US. I really appreciated the way the meal was displayed, I always like it when restaurants take the time to plate their food in an enticing manner.

The drinks
Long Island (N2,500) and a mojito (N2,500)
The drinks were well mixed and the contents were very balanced in the ratios. 

The Service
The waiters all had English names which were kind of interesting (Ferdinand, Solomon etc). The lad that took my order was a very good looking, he was definitely an eye candy. The other waiters were kind to take pictures of us, however, it took them time to bring out the bill.

Bowling
After dinner, we moved to the bowling alley where some of our other friends came to join us. Bowling per person cost N3,500. This includes bowling shoes and socks. The maximum people that can bowl in a group is 8, the more people the more fun. The game ended up lasting about 1 hour because each person got the chance to bowl 10 times. I was second place at my birthday bowling party, some people don't have manners, lol. Quite frankly, I should have won because it was my day.

The alley has a bar where you can order drinks and food. We just had dinner so we didn't get anything from the bar. There are also pool tables that you can play at while you wait for your bowling space to be ready.

The music playing in the background as you bowled was lit! You can have a mini-party while you play the super competitive game. The music and the atmosphere made it a very interesting experience. 

After bowling, we went down to the lounge bar downstairs, this was around 12:30pm. Everywhere was getting ready to close at 1am. The lounge bar looks like a pretty cool place to hang out with friends on a weekend. It was empty by the time we got there. The way out was made with rocks designed in a stair-like manner. I forgot to take pictures, it felt like a mini-hiking trip with water flowing out of the sides of the rock.

General opinion
I think the dome is a pretty cool place to hang out in Abuja, however, it is a bit on the average side of cost.

They made me feel very special on my birthday by giving me a mini-brownie like cake while they played me a birthday song on the music player. They also wished me a happy birthday on the bowling screen.

The bowling cost is more expensive than Truckadero I was told. I should probably do a compare and contrast post about both bowling alleys in Abuja. I honestly don't know if there are other alleys in Abuja, leave a comment if you think there are others.

Thank you so much for reading my blog post. I hope you plan to do something fun this weekend. Here is a location link to Dome.

Are Men Scum: The godly man guide

Men are Scum: The godly man guide to not being a scum
Last week, I watched Larry Charles' dangerous world of comedy on Netflix and the third episode focused on sexism.  It turns out that Nigeria's comedy industry thrives on sexists jokes that objectify women, normalise rape and encourage the exploitation of women. It was one of the most disgusting things I have ever watched. It's interesting that many think rape is a thing to joke about and the audience laughs at those vile jokes that involve victim blaming. Sexism is broadly seen in our society from the blue collar workers to the board room bosses, from Nollywood movies to product commercials. It is so deeply embedded in our subconscious that we don’t intend to hurt women with our words or actions, it is just a thing of a "normal thing". The truth is I am not trying to vilify anyone. The average man was dealt sexism as a part of being in this present day society. The good thing is you can unlearn all of these thin…

Story Time: How I got my battle scars (Part 1)

Story Time: How I got my battle scars Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog. I know many of you that have seen me in real life or have seen my pictures have questions about my scars. I'd have questions too if I was in your shoes. To note, putting myself out there like this is new to me but I believe my story will bless and inspire someone. It is a story of victory, deliverance, overcoming tragedy and experiencing God’s intentional love. 


Romans 8:28 (TPT) So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together to fit into God's perfect plan of bringing good into our lives, for we are his lovers who have been called to fulfil his designed purpose.


On the 24th of March, 2012 my life changed forever. As the secretary of the History and International Studies student association at Babcock University (2012), I was part of the planning process for the annual departmental field trip. I woke up bright and early ready to face a wonderful and impactful day planned f…

Have faith, you will make it

Faith it till you make it
"Fake it till you make" was my go-to word and action while I was doing my post-graduate studies. For those that don't know what this means it is simply the act of imitating confidence, competence, and an optimistic mindset until you achieve your goals even when everything is not going your way. Basically, you may be discouraged on the inside about a situation but you act as though you are positive about it on the outside. For science lovers, this act is actually based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). But since we are Christians, I decided to title it faith it till you make it because I realize that faking it keeps us limited at our own abilities. But when you “faith it”, you will assuredly make it!
Mark 11:23-23 (TLB) In reply Jesus said to the disciples, “If you only have faith in God—this is the absolute truth—you can say to this Mount of Olives, ‘Rise up and fall into the Mediterranean,’ and your command will be obeyed. All that’s requi…
