Sometimes last week I was starving and went to an amala joint to relieve myself of the hunger. Hunger is a very bad thing you know.
So I ordered for some amala oh, you needed to see the way they were using that their plastic spoon to scoop out the amala as if I came to beg . That’s how I ended up eating 4 wraps of amala oh! 100# one hundred naira per wrap. Then the ogufe(goat meat) was 500# five hundred naira, just because I carefully selected the meaty part, the other normal bony ogufes were 400#.
The gbegiri was not that great but it was Ok. At least it satisfied my hunger.
I thought I won’t be able to finish the amala because I’ve been feeling bloated lately and it was almost evening before I ate it. To my greatest surprise, I cleared the plate oh. Just laidat 1000# on top amala!! I bought bottled water with the remaining 100# that’s how it was 1k, I sabi maths and please nobody should just call me a foodie
That was when I remembered the good old days when I used to come back from school at mile 2, my mum would leave 20# twenty naira for me as lunch money. I used to go to Iya Belgium at festac amuwo odofin to buy my regular lunch that looked just like the above picture inside stainless bowl. Iya Belgium would even give me small meat as “fisi” (dash).
I was one of her regular customers then , 20# sef na money abeg. We supported the ministry. Now I hear she’s a big woman in festac and has even handed the business over to her children.
I miss the days of 20# amala mehn! Those were good old days.
Share your good old days experience let’s reminisce together.
