Bubble Gum, Yay or Nay?

Good day Amazing You ๐Ÿค—, How have you been? Yeah, I know it’s been awhile and am sorry for the delay.

Have you read my previous post?

Okay, so let’s get the business of the day rolling, or let’s say topic of the day ๐Ÿ˜Œ.

Bubble gums or chewing gum? Whatever ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿฝ.

So this post is to enlighten you on the surprising health benefits of chewing gum ๐Ÿ˜Šand also the afterdeal ๐Ÿ˜ทyou need to be aware of …

Ready? ๐Ÿง

People have been chewing gum in various forms for thousands of years. Original gums were made from the sap of trees, such as spruce or Manilkara chicle; However, most modern chewing gums are made from synthetic rubbers.

What Is Chewing Gum?

Chewing gum is a soft, rubbery substance that’s designed to be chewed but not swallowed.

Recipes can vary between brands, but all chewing gums have the following basic ingredients:

> Gum: The non-digestible, rubbery base used to give gum its chewy quality.

> Resin: Usually added to strengthen gum and hold it together.

> Fillers: Fillers, such as calcium carbonate or talc, are used to give gum texture.

> Preservatives: These are added to extend shelf life. The most popular choice is an organic compound called butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT).

> Softeners: These are used to retain moisture and prevent the gum from hardening. They can include waxes like paraffin or vegetable oils.

> Sweeteners: Popular ones include cane sugar, beet sugar and corn syrup. Sugar-free gums use sugar alcohols like xylitol or artificial sweeteners like aspartame.

> Flavorings: Added to give a desired flavor. They can be natural or synthetic.

Chewing gum is a candy that’s designed to be chewed but not swallowed. It’s made by mixing a gum base with sweeteners and flavorings.

Are the Ingredients in Chewing Gum Safe?

In general, chewing gum is considered to be safe. However, some brands of chewing gum contain small amounts of controversial ingredients. Even in these cases, the amounts are generally much lower than the amounts considered to cause harm.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Butylated Hydroxytoluene (BHT)

BHT is an antioxidant that’s added to many processed foods as a preservative. It stops food from going bad by preventing fats from becoming rancid. Its use is controversial, as some animal studies have shown high doses can cause cancer. Yet, the results are mixed, and other studies haven’t found this effect. Overall, there are very few human studies, so its effects on people are relatively unknown.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Titanium Dioxide

Titanium dioxide is a common food additive used to whiten products and give them a smooth texture. Some animal studies have linked very high doses of titanium dioxide with nervous system and organ damage in rats. However, studies have provided mixed results, and its effects in humans are relatively unknown. At the moment, the amount and type of titanium dioxide people are exposed to in food is generally considered to be safe.

Nevertheless, more research is needed to determine the safe consumption limit.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Aspartame

Aspartame is an artificial sweetener commonly found in sugar-free foods. It’s highly controversial and has been claimed to cause a range of problems from headaches to obesity to cancer. However, there’s currently no evidence that aspartame causes cancer or weight gain. Evidence for a connection between aspartame and metabolic syndrome or headaches is also weak or nonexistent.

Overall, consuming amounts of aspartame that are within the daily intake recommendations isn’t thought to be harmful.

Chewing gum hasn’t been linked to any serious health effects, but ingredients added to some brands of chewing gum are controversial.

Hello my amiable reader, I trust you’ve been fine. This is the first time am doing something like this (well, there’s always a first time for everything).

Keep your phone whenever you’re going for a late evening walk or early morning jog. Cause you never can tell what would happen.
But, always have it readily accessible.

I actually had in mind to have a walk for 30mins (my usual time frame), I’m sure you’re wondering if that’s ‘walk’, but broda and Sista iss nor your walk nahw, it’s my walk.
So, as I was saying Sha, I walked for about 3mins then I heard ‘Ssssssss’.

Tear drops of Her relinquishment…

Hello You, How have you been? I know it’s been awhile I showed up here, my apologies๐Ÿ˜Œ. I hope you enjoyed my Previous post and believe me you’ll love this too.

By my time here, it’s 4:17 am (GMT+1, Nigeria) and I know you might get to read this at your convenience which is very fine ๐Ÿ˜Š. I’ve got something that sure will interest you, it’s about the goddess that lives among us.

Yes, mothers!

These wonderful creatures are Godsent as they have done so much for us that is compared to none. For those who still have theirs, after this write up, I hope it takes effect and gives you a rethink on how she should be honored and taken care of.

And those who in one way or the other have lost theirs, I use this moment to give my condolences and admonish you to live on the right legacies they gave up and also appreciate those you have around you.

I hope you enjoy and keep the comments rolling, don’t forget to like and share too. Shalom!

She is the softest,
She is the toughest,
She is the wisest,
She is sometimes called a fool;

She gives up her happiness for just a smile,
She holds in her tears just to be bold,
She gives out with love despite the hatred,
Yet she keeps doing this in spite of affront;

She hides her bruises and holds up a smile,
She surrenders her freedom for a future yet unsure,
She gives up her dream for the story yet unknown,
But then she’s considered weak;

She’s like the ray of sunlight that can’t be hidden,
She’s like the tide of the ocean that can’t be held back,
She’s like the earth that can’t stand still,
But then she’s considered a loser;

She gave up her voice,
She gave up her will,
She gave up herself,
For the tendrils to flourish;

She holds in the great masterpiece,
She tenders the affluence,
She protects the most vulnerable,
Even without a voice;

She was broken yet builds up others,
She lost her voice but still gives others utterances,
She keeps fighting despite the weakness,
But then she’s a conqueror;

Taking up all these without a reward?
Fighting all these without a medal?
Giving up all these but to make a change?
She’s more than conqueror;

I proclaim that she be respected,
I blazon that she be held in esteem,
I promulgate that she be honored,
Cause she’s a goddess from the supreme…

This is dedicated to all mothers irrespective of age, nationality, tribe, religion, color or race; And to those we remember today – may the memories left behind be enough to set our heart at peace.

ยฌ My Chariots Await…

ยฌ Yours-in-time

ยฌ Whispered thought

Around Us…

Hello pretty You, how are you and I hope the weather is cool enough?

There’s a lot happening right now that’s got me pissed at how light we take crucial matters ranging from violence, to suicide and all. I really want to talk about the COZA stuff and Busola Dakolo and also about Senator Abbo but then I don’t want to be too sentimental so I’ll express myself the way I know best.

You can share your views or matters arising via the comment box and I’ll respond right away.

Sitting in the comfort of my bed,

My blanket, my phone even as companions,

The weather for two you’ll say,

Its time to think, I’ll reply;

Have watched and heard,

Put my ear to the ground for their footsteps,

Have sighted and viewed,

Giving my attention to the events around;

A depressed soul yearns out for help,

But we’re too busy to listen,

He calls out for love,

I guess we’re to self-ish to give out;

He then leaves us in hope for a better place,

We realize his absence and weep for his exit,

But deep within our conscience bleeds,

Cause you could’ve given a ray;

She comes home with tears and pains,

Her innocence has been robbed off,

But then you give her silence in return,

We cant but help, the beast is born;

She vows to hurt her adversaries,

Irrespective of color, race or religion,

But you blame her for being thoughtless,

And then she comes for you;

He walks in and disregards her dignity,

Acting like an untamed beast,

He soon realises his folly and apologizes,

But because of power, we let him go;

Girl child seeks for love from her progenitor,

But vanity has eaten up their intellect,

She wails at her marred destiny,

But the merry has her silenced;

I could list on the events but it never ends,

I hope you see things from my view,

You and I have our parts to play,

Else we all have to be blamed…

How long is the distance?

๐ŸŽถI’d tell you that I love you today… ๐ŸŽถ

Good Morning or Afternoon or Evening or Night, I hope we all are doing good? Sure we are โ˜บ.



Well, I want to appreciate everyone for reading through the previous post If you were in my shoes… And a bigger thank you to those who aired their views and also liked the post. #muah!

So today, we’ll be having something similar to the last post(I dunno if I should make this a sequel, but lets see sha) and I hope this interests you as it does to me!

Erm! Its about LONG DISTANCE RELATIONSHIP(LDR) – when I meant relationship, I didn’t just mean only the ‘boy/girlfriend’ thing, friendship, bestfriendship and also relationship with colleagues and family – a common problem we have among ourselves today, too bad we all might have at one point, may have been a victim ๐Ÿ˜ข

So, lets set the ball rolling! This post will tell you or… Rephrase that, educate you on the basics you need to know about LDR.

โ›” โ›” โ›” โ›” โ›” โ›”

Readers Alert!

This is a long post!

Grab some drink!

The first thing you need to know is all about Communicationโ€”This is the bedrock of every relationship no matter the distance. You both can be close physically but distant at heart ๐Ÿ™… We all can attest that even in our day to day relationship with people around us, communication is vital. Like I have a friend who’s into LDR with her guy, they have this agreed time to talk irrespective of what they’re doing of which I respectโ€”and I encourage us to embrace. And when I mean communication, I don’t mean the 5mins conversation over the phone o. I mean both of you talking like your can see each other, yeah! That one where you talk at length about anything and everything.

Am sure you’re thinking “I’ve got other things to do”, “It’ll use up my time”. If you both agree to a convenient stipulated time and you both want it to work – then, you have no excuse.

My second point I’ll like us to understand is Honestyโ€“ This is the act of being upright and truthful. Most of us even in our day-to-day relation with people, we’re not being honest with how we feel, what we stay, what we do, talk more of someone you don’t get to see everyday.

You both should be open-minded to each other without keeping your partner in the dark. Your partner has no mind reading talent, be truthful with how you feel about him, about both of you, about the things going on around you. It gives them the thrive to listen to you, makes them feel this closeness and have them wanting to share secrets with you as they feel safe with you irrespective of the miles in between.

When he/see asks “How are you?” Be honest with your reply, most of us give this lie, “I’m fine” every time (even I do so).

If you’re not fine, say so.

If you’re confused, say so with reasons – don’t keep them hanging and have them guess things wrongly. It causes a bit of distance that you don’t get to notice cause you’re already breeding room for doubt.

And also be Sincere. I’m sure you’re wondering what the difference between Sincerity and Honesty is. Right? The answer is simple, you can be honest and may not be sincere! You can tell the truth and not be sincere.

Take for instance, your partner asks “How are you?” and your reply is

I’m not too good, just a bit of pressure at work”

You’re being honest but not sincere!

Meanwhile your reply was meant to be “I’m not to good, my boss called this morning to get some paper work done within such a little time frame, and I’m not even done with the previous paper work from the previous client I told you about on Monday, and then I have to turn both in by Friday, two days from now. How am I supposed to get that done? Does he…”

Can you note the obvious difference of honesty and sincerity?

Don’t leave out the details.

Another to add to this list is, Integrity. Its slightly similar to honesty and sincerity but I’ll like to use one of Its synonymsโ€” Decency. You should both attain a level of decency such that you can vouch for what the other can do even without you being physically present.

There might be wavy rumors that when you get hold of them, you will have a strong inner conviction that your partner cannot do a bit of what they claim they do. And you can only achieve this by knowing yourselves too well, using the first step.

Enjoy your friendship. Yeah, it might sound a bit off the usual you were expecting but Its important that you both enjoy your friendship. In the sense that, you forget about the clause ‘love’, and talk things out.

If you were in my shoes…

๐ŸŽถ Its been a long day without you my friend ๐ŸŽถ

Hello You!

Special You!

Amazing You!

Wonderful You!

Its amazing to have you back here and am so happy you took out time out of no time to click that link, THANK YOU SO MUCH! It means a lot to me.

So, lets not waste time and get down to the business of the day! Its a scenario from a movie I watched and I want to know what you think or feel about it and also what your friend feels about it too – Its actually a scenario from my head, LOL. So,

Taadaaa! Here it goes;

You went to this dinner party sometimes back with a friend and then you met this hot guy…. Let me rephrase that, this hot guy couldn’t take his eyes off gorgeous you

And then two months after he got your contact from God-knows-who, he chats you up.

You two go well along with the phone calls, texts and video calls. He meets you up for dinner weeks later and then asks you out. You swooned at his mini proposal in an exquisite manner. Oh! And then,

All went well for months and years and then three years and still counting into your Mr-perfect-dreams

He meets you up and then talks about a project that’s going to take him away across the country for 11 months, though He’s a traveller – has gone in small trips and all is fine, and he leaves the next day.

Without further ado, you bid your farewell at the airport and then you drove back home with high hopes.

Days into weeks and then into months…

Communication was fine until he started giving excuses as to work and being tired and network shii. You adapted well until, this last straw…

You called to tell him of your promotion at work, 5 months after his departure, at the the usual time but then it goes straight into voicemail – after several attempts. He picks.

Alas! A young lady picks his call and then said “Can you call back, my baby is in the bathroom?”




I know what you’re thinking.

Eloi Eloi

Still lieing on my bed with body pain,

I thought of him lieing with so much pain,

His thoughts were just of me and of his,

His thoughts was of my salvation;

Maybe he could turn back the hands of time,

Maybe he could reverse the punishment,

Maybe he could go back in time transit,

But he wouldn’t have rejected the death;

He was wounded that I may be saved,

He was insulted that I may be praised,

He was bruised that I may be elated,

He was beaten for his thoughts we of me;

How so much love did he declare,

So much compassion did he exhibit,

So much stripes did he take,

So that I may be saved;

No greater love than this,

That a man lay down his like,

No greater love than this,

That a king be this wounded;

He was crucified and made of mockery,

He was whipped and spat upon,

His crown of thorn in place of gold,

He was bruised for my sake;

He showed me so much love and compassion,

By forgiving even at the last minute,

He showed so much patience when he looked to the heavens and said –

Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?

ืืœื•ื”ื™ื ืื“ื™ืจื™ื ืœืžื” ืœื ื ื˜ืฉืช ืื•ืชื™?

Good day my awesome people, how are you all doing? Good, I hope.

I wrote this amazing write up prior to Valentine but I couldn’t upload due to unforseen circumstances. Well, there’s no special or specific day, date, time or hour to express love. ๐Ÿ˜Š


Also, don’t forget to like, comment and share.

Your smile takes away my breath,

Your voice makes me feel safe,

Your eyes holds me like a sheath,

Just as your hand keeps me warm;

Just as Valentine is for love,

I owe you my love,

Just as Valentine shows sacrifice,

I sacrifice my heart for you;

I know Knowing you was fate,

But having you is joy,

And loving you with faith,

Gives me gives me lot of hush;

I could express my love in a thousand words,

Could convey my feelings for a thousand year,

And even show a thousand persons,

That my love for you is worth more than thousands of gold;

Babe you make me see the world through your eyes,

You make me float on the sea just like ice,

Even though I know I could melt,

But you’re worth melting for;

You’re just the fire I need to stay warm,

You’re the light in my darkness,

You fill so much space in my heart,

That can never be left void.

Heart ache…

Hello my awesome readers and followers, Its a BIG THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart; I really appreciate your comments, likes and follow up. They motivate me to keep the good work on.

Don’t be stingy to keep these amazing write-ups to yourself, you’re free to share the link with your friends and family. I appreciate that though.

Now to the business of the day. I was sitting in class and thought of how a broken hearted babe would be feeling. So, putting myself in her shoes…… I decided to pour out my feelings in this write up

Waking up to this numb feeling,

I know it has to do with this feeling,

It has to be with you leaving,

It has all to do with me lingering;

I know we’ve come this far,

But we can make it last,

At least hear me out,

But don’t make me cry;

I try making this work out,

But you seem pleased with your way out,

You make me want to seem broken,

But I’m holding to this last token;

Valentine was too good to be true,

Spring sets its Sunshine on you,

Summer lets me make out with you,

But you let winter tear us apart;

I have this heart ache,

It has all to do with you turning and not looking,

It has to do with my heart lock broken,

It has to do with this inner voice shattering;

I try to make it up,

But you give no fuck,

I tried to be on the look out,

But you were no where;

The traces you leave behind,

Are the pieces I have to mend,

The feeling you leave behind,

Are starting to fade;

But babe,

It seems you are gone for good,

I feel you left a piece;

But babe,

I got my shattered piece in one piece,

And now there’s no place to fix;

I hope you find a better place,

I hope she gives you a better piece,

I hope she makes you a finer piece,

I hope she makes you peace.
