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.

What does it mean to be complete in Christ?

What does it mean to be complete in Christ? When you look at yourself, what do you see? Do you see someone who is imperfect and lacking in many areas? Do you sometimes find yourself thinking these thoughts? God is angry with me. I’m too dirty and damaged for Him to accept me. Why would God want to be with me when I’m a hot mess. Let me give you a secret, it doesn't matter how you feel or what you think. All that matters is what God has said in His word. His word says you are Complete in Christ! You are whole! Nothing missing, nothing lost, nothing broken! This is not by your deeds or something you are on your own. This is because you're in Christ!  Are you in Christ? Colossians 2:9-10 (NKJV) For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead [a]bodily; 10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all [b]principality and power. Colossians 2:9-10 (TPT) For he is the complete fullness of deity living in human form. 10 And our own completeness is now found in him . We are co

Righteousness consciousness versus sin consciousness

Righteousness consciousness versus sin consciousness If you follow me on twitter for a while now, you will see that I always talk about how powerful your righteousness consciousness is compared to sin consciousness. I often roll my eyes when I see people discussing if something is sin or not sin. Do you know someone that is always talking about what is sin or isn’t sin? Or have you found yourself saying “I must be careful not to sin today, God help me not to sin” every day? This is being sin-conscious! You have not sinned yet but you are over-focused on the power of sin rather than the righteousness of God that you are as a believer . Hebrews 10:2-3 (TPT) For if animal sacrifices could once and for all eliminate sin, they would have ceased to be offered and the worshipers would have clean consciences. Instead, once was not enough so by the repetitive sacrifices year after year, the worshipers were continually reminded of their sins, with their hearts still impure. &q

10 things Christian couples should talk about before marriage

10 things Christian couples should talk about before marriage by Bibi Babatunde-Ikotun Hi Bi-blings, it's been a hot minute I did a post on relationship and marriage. I guess it's timely because my 2 years wedding anniversary is next week and I'm in the romantic love space so I figured I might as well. So why is it important to discuss these things? Well, it's necessary because it eliminates a lot of headaches you may have along the way. It may not eliminate it all completely but there won't be any surprises. Imagine if after you said "I do", the person reveals that they are not interested in children and you want 2 kids. Where would you start from? There are so many conflicts that can be avoided altogether by having these difficult conversations before you say I do. Money Listen, money is very important in marriage. If you're not talking about your money habits now, you are setting yourself up for hard conversations down the line. Ask questions about
