YW COVERSTAR: EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH KRYSMAR…PART TWO.

YW COVERSTAR: EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH KRYSMAR…PART TWO.

YW Your caption on Instagram states ‘Attitude is everything.’ What’s your definition of Attitude?   KRYSMAR Yes! for me, attitude is the position one chooses to take in the face of the different situations of life. for example, if you see a glass of unfilled water lying on a table, then you have the choice to see it either half empty or half full depending on your current state of mind. the right attitude would like you to see it half full to encourage you to make a little more effort to fill it. this principle applies to all the situations of the world we are facing. In conclusion, always choosing to adopt a positive attitude is the key to cross all the obstacles that will be in our path. French version  Yes! pour moi, l’attitude est la position qu’on choisi de prendre face aux differentes dituations de la vie. par exemple, si vous voyez un verre d’eau non rempli posé sur une table, vous avez alors le choix de le voir soit à moitié vide, soit à moitié plein selon votre etat d’esprit du moment. la bonne attitude voudrais que vous le voyez à moitié plein pour vous encourager à faire encore un peu d’effort pour la remplir. ce principe s’applique à toutes les situtions de la bie dont nous devons faire face. en conclusion, choisir toujours d’adopter une attitude positive est la clé pour traverser tous les obstacles qu’il y aura sur notre chemin.   YW The month of March is women’s month and we just celebrated International Women’s Day with a powerful theme ‘Push For Progress.’...

YW COVERSTAR: EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH KRYSMAR…PART ONE.

I sat down with my notebook in hand, ready to make that call to Krysmar. I had been thinking about this day for a while. Though I had never spoken to Krysmar, through her work, we had forged an acquaintanceship or should I say fanship on my part, full of admiration for her talent. Come on! She sings like a Nightingale, what’s there not to admire? And I was ready to dig into the core of her talent. Krysmar whose full name is Christelle-Mirielle Menekeu, is an Afropop/soul artist from Cameroon. She hails from Nchang, West Cameroon but was born in Douala, the Economic Capital of Cameroon. At a very young age, the singer moved with her family to Libreville, Gabon where she attended primary school. Krysmar was always surrounded by music. By the age of nine,she was already singing anything that sounded like a tune, be it musical adverts or news or series soundtracks. Her parents quickly noticed her talent. Little Christelle possessed such a big voice and she knew she wanted to sing like her idol, the legendary Whitney Houston but her parents wanted her to sing for God and so they took her straight to church where she joined the Children’s choir, just like her idol. After her primary education, her family moved back to Cameroon where she contined her education in Douala. They later on relocated to the North where she continued her secondary school education at the Lycee Technique, Ngaoundere. While there, Krysmar joined the school choir and was made the President of the Music Club. After her BAC( Baccalareat), Krysmar made the decision...

WOMAN WORK BY MAYA ANGELOU.

I’ve got the children to tend The clothes to mend The floor to mop The food to shop Then the chicken to fry The baby to dry I got company to feed The garden to weed I’ve got shirts to press The tots to dress The can to be cut I gotta clean up this hut Then see about the sick And the cotton to pick. Shine on me, sunshine Rain on me, rain Fall softly, dewdrops And cool my brow again. Storm, blow me from here With your fiercest wind Let me float across the sky ‘Til I can rest again. Fall gently, snowflakes Cover me with white Cold icy kisses and Let me rest tonight. Sun, rain, curving sky Mountain, oceans, leaf and stone Star shine, moon glow You’re all that I can call my...

YENIHSDELITES: FISH AND CHIPS WITH MUSHY PEAS AND AFRICAN STYLE GRAVY.

It was a cook-anything-you-can-find-in-your-kitchen kinda day again. It had been snowing non-stop since the start of the week. UK was under the white attack my people. They said it was the aftermath of a dry, frigid air from Siberia and they named it ‘The Beast From The East’ and it really showed up and showed out. Mr Beast from the East brought some chilling friends along for the snowy ride…the rain, the wind, the cold, the White Walkers and Jon Snow…mscheeeew!!! Anywhooo, what I’m trying to say is, because of the snow, we were stuck at home with only some few food items here and there….frozen fish here…frozen peas there…so what do you do? I psyched myself and finally got out of bed, got ready and walked into the kitchen feeling like a lifesaver on Survival Island. I whipped out the ingredients and food items from the cupboards and freezer and before I knew it, this beauty was staring back at me, looking all yummy and ready to be eaten. Fried Fish(in batter and coated with cornflakes crumbs), using coconut oil and chips with mushy peas and gravy(black beans and chickpeas in shito peppered stew). That’s how this concoction came about last Wednesday....
NDOLOMIX: THE FACE OF LOVE WITHOUT SEX.

NDOLOMIX: THE FACE OF LOVE WITHOUT SEX.

I was just thinking about this year’s valentine’s day and how much I enjoyed it. Celebrating this special day has evolved over the years and so have I. Like most people in a committed relationship, we want our love to grow along with everything; sexlife, success, and more family. So even though I am not particular about Vdays, I was pondering what love has been like on “non-holidays”.  There are so many days when we have shared overwhelming love for each other from just a moment together. For example, the other night he brought home a chocolate covered cake for me from Lila’s, a new bakery in bonapriso that I wanted to check out. I’ll say just the gesture itself opened me up and I spilled my love to him as I enjoyed the cake. The moment was just perfect, listening to music, eating the deliciously sweet cake and going deeper into our conversation. Later, I felt so thoroughly massaged inside that I slept off instantly. I woke up the next day certain I can choose that version of closeness over even sex. In terms of feeling, a moment  like that to me is way stronger, way deeper than sex. So what if sex was taken out? No problem, because I believe that love is a feeling and there are many other things that bring us a shared feeling of love for each other. We focus on the things that unify us with the same intensity. That feeling of not wanting to be with anyone else, of following our own hearts each day. Communication is key. The conversations in...
