An Area Girl in Abidjan Day 5 P2

Y’all should be guessing am almost stonned oh I mean skinned by now 🙂

With a hectic week behind me, a now running nose and a very stringent food budget thanks to my own doing by committing to ‘Lose It’, all I can do for this day’s wrap up is share some photos.

Made it to the conference centre on time to get my certificate from maybe a future Lose It coach? It wasn’t me 🙂

Found this on my way to the centre this morning and just had to snap. So awesome. Please use google translate cause am so tired but my sleep is all over the place thanks to the running nose of course 🙂

Getting my handbag fixed at some local mender on the street. I am an area girl and prefer me to go simple stuffs and avoid designers stuffs and all like the flea –  sanity and stringent food and cash budgets 🙂

Also got my sandals fixed and all of these cost me just 200 frs – nothing near a dollar 🙂

Took this with a ‘local prince’ in my class and he said I could share on my blog. That’s one of their traditional grabs 🙂

All in all, had a wonderful day and evening. The civilisation museum was closed due to renovations, couldn’t catch no ferries thanks to ‘running and rambling nose’, got some meds to sooth that some, slept some and then went out to my 5:30 pm date.

Here’s hoping to a better tomorrow; now sleep sleep come my way 🙂

Wishing us loads



Marie Angele Abanga (simplified to Marie Abanga) aka MAG likes to describe herself as a “Jacqueline of several trades”. She is an everyday woman and mother with a zigzag profile. Let’s give it a try! She is an Activist, an Author, a Coach, a Consultant, a Feminist, a Lawyer, a Lecturer, a Prince 2 Project Manager, a Psychotherapist, a Philanthropist, a minister of the Word of God and...! She just loves to sum it up by saying she is a person of passions and a tale of talents. Her life’s journey has filled over 6 books already and her three musketeers keep her busy at home. MAG is also the founder and CEO of the association Hope for the Abused and Battered, and the Country Director of the Gabriel Bebonbechem Foundation for Epilepsy & Mental wellbeing. The plethora of life's experiences and shenanigans she has lived through and learned from in near 4 decades of existence, have equipped her with such an arsenal to coach, train and motivate just any and everyone. She is so charismatic, dynamic and full of life, going by her designed mantra of 3Ds: Determination; Discipline and Dedication. These sum her+her quest to be the best version of herself and impact others perfectly. She attributes all her wealth of knowledge to her conscientious attendance of both informal and formal school.
