So yea, my dad is the coolest. I would marry him if it were possible. I tell my mom all the time that she'll definitly have competition in me in our next life. I should probably blog about him sometime. First things first though, I'm trying to replace my sister; Prim-not. I am finally tired of her. I thought I could manage her but naa, not working anymore. The yeye girl is trouble. Just last weekend, she wanted to put me in trouble. Let me share what happened. So last weekend, during this church service that I attended, my phone rang. Yea, my sister was calling. Of course I thought I switched off all alerts until Rihanna and Eminem's "Monster" rang out in church. Yea, the  one that starts with:

I'm friends with the monster that's under my bed
Get along with the voices inside of my head
You're trying to save me, stop holding your breath
And you think I'm crazy, yeah, you think I'm crazy

In church o! Alakoba. The pastor would have orgnised sharp sharp special deliverance for me. Suffice to say, i've changed my ring tone. Sigh.

So to the matter of today. See ehn, all of you people always looking down on Ibadan…."Ibadan the city of rust", "Ibadan ki ni so?”, "Ibadan the ancient city”, take my word for it, in a few more years, you will be swallowing your words and asking an Ibadan pelzon to give you water to wash it down.

Initially, I was surprised when a fast growing internet providing company started its operations from Ibadan. I wondered why not Lagos, or Abuja, or Port Harcourt as is the norm with these sort of things. Then again, why not Ibadan? Anyway, today is not to talk about that. It is to talk about some of the pure gold in this City of Ibadan. A very good friend recently told me about a place called Orange Fabrics. So I went there and got myself a few things. I love the ambiance as opposed to the sun and heat of Aleshinloye.

Orange Fabrics is a one-stop-shop for all things clothing. I mean that very literally o. Name it and they probably have it. Clothing, shoes and accessories of all sizes and occasions for men, women, kids and babies. Its location is in the heart of the city gaan gaan on 24, Kudeti Avenue, Onireke. That's the area I wish my dad would carry our house to (HD, I'm watching you so stop laughing!) If it were possible, I'd be getting to work in 2minutes flat!

Anyways, the store also stocks lovely Lace, Atiku, Cord, Ankara, etc. fabrics of varied prices right there in the store! Do you realize that this means there is no need to peruse Aleshinloye or Gbagi or travel all the way to Isale Eko in the scorching sun to get lovely and decently priced authentic fabrics?! Though belated, I know exactly where I am getting my mother’s Mother’s Day present from. The woman has been driving me crazy and I need her to love me for another week at least :D

What’s more, I got a deal for my Ibadan readers or anyone of you that have family in Ibadan. If you visit Orange Fabrics and mention that you read about them on Toinlicious’ blog, you are entitled to a free gift with your purchase. Free gift o! As in OshoFREE!

My people, what are you waiting for? Don’t say I never did anything for you guys o! Ilu Ibadan o ni baje…O ba je ti….:D

You can contact them on: (+234) 08095154201

I'll be gisting you guys about my ex-sister (yea, it's that serious) soon.
