What can we say, if you did not come on the Lotus Daycation to Whispering Palms, Badagry you missed out on a lot of Fun stuff! At least we can say with a clear conscience that we warned you!
Okay, okay let’s play nice. We’ll tell you what went down so you will won’t feel bad.
SUPER PSYCHED AND READY TO GO #lotuswhisperingpalmsdaycation
It took us about 2 hours to get there but hey, we had so much fun that we forgot the hassles. From the fun games on the Bus (2 Truths 1 Lie, Word Association and more) to the Pizza and Tigernut Milk Shenanigans (we said some pretty adult things) we got up to, we were more than psyched.
Fit Mum Ejiro Oyeneye of Team Fitness helped us get into the mood with an Aerobics class and that saw us stretching our muscles before we took a tour of the grounds. This gave us a chance to see a number of animals as well as relics from the slave trade era. What a time to be alive! To think that some were not allowed to live in freedom because of the color of their skin! We’ll keep on working on it till they realize that #BlackLivesMatter. Others took advantage of the pool and went to either take photos by the pool or do some actual swimming (catch your subs here).
ARRIVAL… YAY! WE MADE IT
AEROBICS IT IS
COOL OFF AT THE POOL
PASSING THROUGH TIME AND SOME RELICS
THE MONKEY CAN UNWRAP A SWEET FASTER THAN YOU!
LUNCH IS SERVED
Then we headed out for Lunch where we did some bonding and gisting in our groups – Team Cupcakes, Ice Cream, Cookies, Jollof Rice, Chocolate and Popcorn (Yeah, we are sweet like that). We were going on water next so we needed to get fueled up and revved to go!
Next up was the Boat cycling and some people took to it like fish in water, others… Let’s just say we had a great time laughing at Team Jollof Rice them. Once we wrapped this up, we went on to the raffle draw where we picked those who won gifts from our lovely sponsors.
and then, RAFFLE DRAW AND GOODIE BAG GIVEAWAY….
There was an amazing wristwatch up for grabs which a SLAy sister Seyi Amao picked up as well as Domino’s Pizza Vouchers (If you didn’t read about us on Sheleadsafrica.org, just click this sentence). Not to be cheesy but everyone went home as a winner with gifts in their Goody Bags, awesome stuff!
Shout out to all our sponsors, from Chef Tonia of Silton African Kitchen, Ejiro Oyeneye of Team Fitness, Kamari Luxe for the Lush Organic Soaps, Domino’s Pizza, Lawla’s Confectionaries for the Cupcakes, Talking Wrists and Accessories for the Wristwatch, Just scents for Perfumes, Posh Zone for capturing Fun Moments, Aeesha collections for the Ankara slippers, La Moda by Iyanuoluwa for the Neck pieces and BellaNaija, Lagos Mums, Unilag_Efiwe and She Leads Africa for helping us to spread the word.
While we appreciate all these sponsors some of you need to pay us extra. Why, you ask? You used to take Pre-wedding photos! Okay, okay we forgive you but next time, tell your friends to come and propose to their baes on a Lotus Tour.
