Hey Beautiful people!
I'm not sure if you know this but I love food. While it might not always show due to my high metabolism rate, stress at times and the fact that I love walking, I am actually your ultimate foodie. Now, as much as I love food, I actually don't eat out as much as I'd like. I'm one of those people who likes to see my money either hanging in my closet or sitting in my account. Plus you all know the state of the economy so yeah.

So of course I jumped on the offer for free food and Chinese food at that. As mentioned in my last post, I was invited to a Bloggers taster’s event organised by the Blogger Point Nigeria at Winny's Meals Abuja. I actually lived in Asia for over seven years, Thailand to be exact (see here and here). Hence I was excited to get a similar taste to some of my favourite food. Now while Chinese food and Thai food vary especially in the spices, this was a close taste to food from my second home, Thailand.

Since the event started in usual Nigerian fashion, an hour or so later than slated, we had time to take tons of pictures and explore the restaurant. I loved the ambience and definitely saw the Chinese influence in the lights and wall decor. 

We had a vast array of food which I can't remember all the names now. The fried rice was good; I loved it combined with the beef sauce and shrimp sauce below. It was also my first time finally trying Chapman. I really liked the spring rolls too but wasn't a big fan of the big shrimp tempura and the noodles. I'd say for the most part most dishes served to us had a slight Nigerian influence in them.

 Grace of Gafashion was the host and guys she’s so down to earth, funny too and has a way with people. It was nice seeing her again and catching up, it had been so long, remember our collaboration here and meet up here too. Also my girl Larisa of Larisas Diary, came through with my outfit pictures, it was nice to see a familiar face. The theme was Think China hence I opted for an oversized vintage shirt from my store The Vintage Connection NG and belted it over to give the look of a Kimono, thoughts?

I actually had a good time sharing thoughts about blogging, discussing with my peers in the industry and of course enjoying some Chinese food. Really wish I had eaten more but I got distracted.

A few other bloggers and familiar faces at the event were:
Etty and Mife of Maniera by Dale, Hadiza of Hadiza French,  Emmanuel of Ekpo, Lilian a You-tuber here, Toyin a You-tuber here, Maureen of Styled Colorfully and Precious Styles

Salmah of Dear Salmah

Thank you to the Blogger Point Nigeria, the event was well put together, I look forward to more. Looking at this post, this is actually my first food/review post, perhaps there will be more if I go out. I'll also be re-shooting this look so stay tuned.

If you ever want to try Chinese food, contact Winny's Meals here, they are based in Lagos and Abuja.  Also you can read up on Grace's review here  for more details as well.

  10. I kept up with the blogger point snapchat. That point where you guys where arguing with that guy about blogging about social change and issues was fun. I have a hate love thing with Chinese,and I've also never ever had a Chapman lol. I love what you wore sooo nice, and really got the Chinese vibe

    1. Yes finally someone who can relate, I'd love to know your thoughts when you finally try chapman though. I actually enjoyed the argument, though it was more like a conversation, he had a point though. Blogging can be quite superficial at times, so I like what he said. Chinese food is great what is the hate with it lol?
