The Hostel Manager, The Programmer and Me ;)

Tadaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!

So as you may have noticed, I recently acquired a brand new name! Rosa Antoinette ( Kuukua Annang Asante ( here’s the part where I do my happy dance and display all my 32 and couple more teeth lol.) Yes, I got married to a very beautiful person Francis Asante. Anyone who has met this man will understand how easy it was for me to  “fall” for him, and how privileged I am to share life with him . I am still working on finding the words to describe how I feel, God really outdid himself on this one. Maybe I will share that in another post.Right now I just want to share a bit of my joy, and some pictures  with you.

How we met…

Put simply, we were sold the same room at a hostel by a crook of a hostel manager called Pa George ( Shout outs to all the GIJ alumnae who can relate- Anthony Jackson, Jemila, Ini and the rest!). This was in 2010 I think, when I was studying for a Diploma in Communication Studies at the Ghana Institute of Journalism, and he was studying Computer Science at Ashesi University which was then located at Labone.

When it was time for us to move in, my roommate Araba and I were shown a room which was already being occupied by Francis and his roommate Henry! Of course I was angry, but my mother was angrier, you should have seen how she lashed out at the old man. Pa George eventually gave Araba and I a new room ( a better deal actually, thanks to Mama) but I had to meet the guys who “stole” our room and I did meet one of them – The One. We became friends, very good friends,(ok we dated, but you know our parents don’t like hearing tins like that ah)  and well, here we are now!

Lesson: In all things give thanks – even for the Pa Georges of your life! lol

I don’t know what go into me!!

One evening, when i had become over addicted to a particular photography page on Facebook  i clicked the message button and wrote the following letter. I do not know what kind of ambition possessed me or the manner of reply to expect, i got a positive feedback!

Moral: sometimes being conventional is NOT the way to go.





Dear Sir,

HERE’S HOW MUCH I WOULD LIKE TO WORK WITH YOU:

I suppose the process of producing the kind of magic you do is very involving, which is why I understand that you may not have enough time to reply all your Facebook messages-especially those that require an examination of your Ghanaian directory skills!

I want to inform you that I took it upon myself to find out where your office is. I’m told its around the K………. I trust I will find it, and I will be more than happy to present myself for an interview once you confirm the date and time most convenient for you.

There’s no telling what I might do if this mail is not replied. I am very likely to show up, well dressed and well conditioned to begin working with you. I would end my note here repeating that I am a hardworker, quite a risk taker and embarrassingly eager to work with you.  

Truly yours,

Kuukua AnnangImage
