ObyOrijisafetytips: What you must do before cleaning your fridge these days.

Hi Guys, how is your day going ? Before I start,  I will like to take out time to salute those who actually clean their fridges, like my sister. How often do you get your fridge cleaned out? Weekly? monthly? when it gets really really dirty? Well what ever the case maybe, I will like to talk about what must be done before you even commence your cleaning.

Most people will never admit, but the fridge of today, is doing the same job as the trash can.  When frugal People like me do go on dates, they get the remenant  of the food they couldn’t finish, or sometimes even have a plate to go. When they get home, the open up the fridge and throw in the food. When you go grocery shopping, you get home, open up the fridge and put everything in. Every food the family couldn’t finish at a meal, they put it in the fridge. When ladies have their cosmetics that need to be kept cool, they leave it in the fridge. When drinks are drunk half way, they are taken back to the fridge.  It is safe to say that everything goes into the fridge.

And when people are have all these things in the fridge, be it a bachelor, a couple, a family. Most of these things placed in the fridge are bound to go bad. Thirty percent of what we put into the fridge, end sup min the trash can. Studies show that the people so the cleanest fridges are the OCD, the house wives, and the broke bachelor. Being the device that holds the most food in the house, the fridge is a strong enabler of insects, bacteria, and he rest.

For this reason alone, you need to clean your fridge as regularly as you should. Don’t wait until it has dried up patches of food and junks in it.

Now What must we do before cleaning up our fridge.

I have seen people who want to clean their fridge in a seconds, supposedly being on a haste, or tagging the hygienic act ‘uninteresting’. That’s is true. Cleaning the fridge is not that fun, but it is very necessary.

Before cleaning the fridge, you should First of all switch off the socket where the fridge is plugged to. Go to the wall, and switch it off. This is specifically for my Nigerian people.  If you are even more afraid of electricity and its intense powers, then you should totally unplug it.

Many have over the years over looked the importance of unplugging the fridge before cleaning it. It is actually very dangerous to go ther with your wet rag trying to clean something that has a high voltage streaming into it.  People have mistakenly touched parts that they weren’t suppose to, because the insulation placed over this dangerous part had worn out due to a long usage of the fridge . This again, applies to my Nigerians  people who have not had the luxury of changing their fridges for decades.

In Nigeria, fridge repairers will break and expose parts of a fridge to gain access and fix it. And once they are done, they don’t have the  parts to replace those damages, so they leave them open for the owners, just as long as the freezing power is retained. Families with kids have had to watch their kids get endangered for as long as it takes to fix or replace the fridge.

Please switch the fridge off before cleaning it up.

What you didn’t know about being a Vegetarian in Nigeria.

Vegetarians in Nigeria

So guys, happy Christmas Eve yehhhhhhhh. It is one day to Christmas and we are incredibly grateful for life. 💃🏾💃🏾So with that said, I wish to say thank you to you all, who are at the prime of  your holidays and have decided to spend some of it on my blog. Thank you for dropping by, I appreciate that. And please,don’t forget to subscribe to ObyOrijiblog right there 👈🏽. Thank you

So, back to the main issue. Many have been  fast to conclude that “it is Impossible to be a vegetarian in Nigeria”, without carrying out any research. Reasons being that’s no one can actually over look the delicious cuisine in our dear Country, and go right ahead to eat the food meant for goats. (In Africa, vegetables are always assumed to be meant for goats) .   FUNNY!!!!

With majority of our food being starchy and Carbohydrate, Nigerians are known to crave for their own local foods so much that even when they are living in a foreign land, they can’t live without them.

We have the famous local Nigerian meals that most Nigerian kids grew up eating, that they can’t  have anything  other than  what they Have known all their lives. These are known as the specialist type of humans, who love to remain in their comfort zone, never ready to take risk or try new things, and must have a routine to follow in live. And from research, these type of people, are known to easily go into extinction. Lol “this hypothesis, is actually meant for animals, and not humans” 🤓😝

Some other people sing it like a song to whoever cares to listen, that in as much as they are obsessed with their Nigerian foods, they are equally open minded to new foods and new ideas even, even if they have to later on, go back to eat their Nigerian meal.

I have a sister who travel the world, but whole there, She is compelled to  go in search of a Nigerian restaurant in all of theses big cities of the world, just to get an expensive Eba and Egusi soup. When ever she converts the money she just paid for a plate of Eba, to that of our Nigerian currency, it will surprise you to know that you would have been able to throw a birthday party for a One year old birthday party in the 90s. Not today parents though, because parents today, are always extra with birthday parties for their kids when they turn one.

We have asked a hand full of our fellow Nigerians even those who are mixed, what their favorite meal is.  And most of them say they cannot go a week without  having Eba or any other  kind of swallow in their system. (Swallow = edible mound balls made with Nigerian food)

This is to show that the fact that Nigerians are obsessed with their own food can never be over emphasized. For this reason, it is always hard mostly impossible, to see a Nigerian who is a vegetarian.  It is more common among those  who have lived or still live abroad in the diaspora, or undergoing a weight loss journey.

Now, for the small percent of people who are vegetarians in Nigeria, this is what you should know about your food.

The first thing to know Is that vegetables in Nigeria, are actually surprisingly  affordable in Nigeria. They are sold as low as N50 Naira in batches, and  N50 is not even as much as a dollar. It is 10% or less of a dollar ($1=N362), which means that you can get N50 worth of lettuce, Ugu, carrot, and many others from your Nigerian markets, to get your desired meal. I am not even conversant with the dishes of a vegetarian. But I very well know that Vegetables  are grown in large quantity here in Nigeria, precisely Jos Plateau state.  This is the reason why they are relatively affordable in Nigeria. Even though  other foods are a lot cheaper for people who are not vegetarians, which is the  reason why they just stick to the non- vegetarian  life style, they are sure of.

But this is to show that you can be a vegetarian in Nigeria. So please don’t conclude other wise.

The minister urged all citizens, both at home and abroad, to support the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari in its determination to improve the living standard of the people.

Normally in Nigeria, festive period brings mixed feelings. Festivity and fright. People celebrate with the mindset of a possible attack on gathered Christians in church or on the street.

Even though the president announced that he is doing all that he possible can, to improve the living standard of the citizens of Nigeria. The people would love to know if soldiers have been placed in strategic places (check points) especially in the Northern part of the Country where festivity suicide bombing has been reoccurring over the years. Christians in the North will feel better knowing that they are being looked out for. Merry Christmas in Advance everyone.
