Born & raised in #Fanar #Lebanon, a tiny country in the middle east with a lot to offer. I always had a positive outlook on life maybe because of the culture or values🤷‍♀️.
If you don't know #Lebanon or a #lebanese then you should start mingling 🤣

I grew up surrounded by a loving, joking & tough type of family that always support each other even amidst fighting. You can imaging being 4 kids in different age groups can cause a lot of fights growing up 😂 #siblingsfight #family #VoicesIWS
@IWS_Network
I have my issues🤷‍♀️! I always wanted to prove myself & make my family proud(2nd child). A pressure that was just in my head; they were always proud of us. I wanted to grow up to be a doctor or an army officer like my dad. Let's just say I changed my mind! #VoicesIWS @IWS_Network

#PassportOffice Ikoyi journey

So I'm chatting with the "agbero" as I walk to the car and he says

"Ah.... Sister , no let them hold tour passport for nothing o, them dey usually charge #3,000 for processing, and e even dey compulsory"
Honestly, his comment shook me...

So I drop all my things in the car and go look for that my "neighbour man" who I'm still not sure what his work is at the passport office....

Anyway, neighbour says, as far as my document is in Servicom, then I'm okay...

Hmmmn.... Okay o.
And I head back to the car and laugh with agberos small before driving off ...

Total amount spent : N21,000

Passport: N17,000
Bank Charges: N500
Parking: N500
Printouts and photo copies: N3,000
