Today I bring to you Ghana 2015|Vlog #8|Dining At Applebee! I have only four more vlogs left 🙁 . I am really happy I recorded everyday. I am proud of myself for committing to my personal goal of sharing MY experience in Ghana.
In this vlog we drop of some cloth at my brother Kofi’s seamster, we eat lunch at my Uncle Yaw’s restaurant (Applebee located in Adum,Kumasi) and we visit the Ghana National Cultural Centre. At the cultural center, we’re given a wonderful tour of the Prempeh II Jubilee Museum. It’s an outdoor museum with lots of Ashanti memorabilia and our tour guide was so knowledgeable. This was my second time experiencing this tour. I did it in 2010 when my brother Kofi and I went together. My sis in law, brother Kwaku and my niece never did it hence why I was there again. Sidenote: On this trip, I did many things that I had already done during my previous trips to Ghana. Regardless, I really enjoyed the tour. We bought some Obaa Simma hair (similar to Xpressions hair), we stopped for some pineapples and then we went home. I recorded my mom pounding fufu which I had been trying to do since we arrived to Kumasi. I’ve seen fufu pounding many times before but I did want to record it specifically for my vlog viewers 🙂 See below some of my favorite pictures from day eight .

The delicious food at Applebee is made fresh to order.

She cut this pineapple with quickness & precision, all while remaining sanitary.
As you can see by these pictures, we did much more than just dine at Applebee. However, that was the highlight of the day. It’s always nice to spend quality time with family. My uncle Yaw is very funny and he’s known within our family for his sense of humor. He’s funny without even trying to be. I hadn’t seen him since last year at my brother Kwaku’s wedding. Plus who doesn’t enjoy a delicious meal? I know I do 🙂
Thank you for reading & have a very blessed week!! 🙂
