Ghana aligned with countries around the world to host successful celebrations to commemorate KLM Royal Dutch Airline’s 100th anniversary.

A festive cocktail reception was held on October 7th at the residence of the Netherlands Ambassador to Ghana, H.E. Ron Strikker to mark this monumental milestone.

Pedro Luis Despaigne Gonzalez, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Honorable Shirley Ayorkor Botchway and Ghanaian actress, Ama K.

“Today marks 100 years since Albert Plesman, the first chief executive of KLM, signed the article of incorporation establishing KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and 59 years since the first flight from KLM landed in Accra. KLM’s centenary development symbolises our partnerships, alliances and goal of bringing hundreds of millions of people from around the globe together per Plesman’s dream ‘the ocean of the air unites all people’. We look forward to another 100 years filled with the same enterprising and pioneering spirit but also with taking on the challenges for sustainability and innovation,” said Van Nieuwenhuyzen who presented Vice President of Ghana, Mahamudu Bawumia, with a cake at Jubilee House earlier in the day to commemorate the VP who shares the airline’s birthday.

Guests enjoyed wine, canapes and beer from Dutch brewing company, Heineken. The honors of the official KLM 100 cake cutting was done by Michel Colleau and Dick Van Nieuwenhuyzen marked with fireworks, confetti and a live rendition of the Happy Birthday song from the house band.

“We are all assembled here this evening to celebrate one whole century of the existence of the Royal Dutch Airlines which we all know is KLM. One hundred years is certainly no small achievement and so the founders, management, staff and all the stakeholders of the famous airline, in particular, the Queen and people of The Kingdom of the Netherlands indeed must be commended, toasted and celebrated. I wish KLM a wonderful centenary and a successful innovative future in which the company will join hands with the Government of Ghana to support the planting and sustaining of one million trees as a project for the BIG 60 that comes next year,” added Ghana’s Minister of Aviation, Honorable Joseph Kofi Adda during his words of recognition.

At 100 years, KLM is the oldest airline in the world still operating under its original name, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines.

5 Things to Consider Before Buying a Love Doll

Published

on

For a lot of people, lifelike sex dolls are now a sensible way of satisfying their sexual needs, sexual fantasies and some nice intimacy. Many are opting for love dolls as away of upgrading their sexual experiences, be a it a solo sexual satisfaction or in concert with a partner. For some, these love dolls have become almost like real human partners capable of taking the place of their real partners as far as meeting their sexual satisfaction goes.

Thanks to technology and materials advances, sex dolls are now made to a very standard with a realistic feeling skin, soft touch, implanted and realistic looking hair, and even removable hymens. This means sex dolls are now able to provide many with genuine and lifelike sexual relationships such as those that they’d get from real people. If you buy the right lifelike sex doll from the right manufacturer, you will pretty much get an exquisite feminine replica that is as real as they come and one which will meet both your sexual and psychological needs.

To buy a sex doll that closely resembles the woman of your dreams and which will meet all your sexual desires and drive you to a sexual climax every time, here are some of the factors that you should consider: –

Silicone vs TPE Sex Dolls

This is an important consideration as it will have a bearing on the quality of the sexual experience that you will have with your doll as well as on other factors such as maintenance and longevity. Before you buy your lifeline sex doll, ask yourself whether you want to have a silicone or TPE sex doll. TPE accounts for 90% sex of dolls while silicone accounts for just 10%. Both materials have their advantages and disadvantages.

Silicone sits at the premium end of the market and is a good choice if you are looking for hyper-realistic sex doll with real hair implants, soft skin, ease of maintenance, longevity, and one that will easily support multiple sex positions just like a real human.

Many people find silicone sex dolls not just lifelike but also more practical, enabling the individual to derive maximum sexual delight, both from a physical and psychological perspective. Clients who have used silicone sex dolls report deriving sexual pleasure that is very close to genuine sex. On the flipside, silicone sex dolls are very expensive and heavier than the TPE sex dolls.

TPE sex dolls have their advantages, too. They are cheaper, softer and lighter and as a result, they are more accessible. However, being plastic, TPE can pose an environmental hazard. They also wear out faster than silicone sex dolls. While silicone sex dolls do not have any odor, TPE sex dolls can smell like gum or they will have the smell of the added fragrance.

What brand to choose?

There are numerous sex doll manufacturers in the market that you can choose from. The quality of their dolls varies considerably. Some of these build higher end and top quality sex dolls that are almost lifelike while others don’t. Generally, if you go for the bigger and better-known sex doll brands such as BBdoll, you are likely to get a better quality and lifelike sex doll than when you go for the small and more obscure companies. Bigger and famous companies also offer warranties and other perks that will make your sexual experience with your love doll a complete delight.

Buy from a Factory or Local Agent

When buying a sex dolls, there are usually multiple purchase options to go for. You can order online from sex shops, from dropshipping shops, from local agents or directly from the factory. It often makes sense to purchase your sex dolls directly from the factory as you are assured of a genuine product and you will get the sex doll at the right pricing. However, buying direct from the factory does not give you the personalized customer service that you would get from a local agent or sex shop. Besides, some resellers might bundle the sex dolls with other perks so buying from them may come with added value.

Do you accept the processing time?

When buying a sex doll, it is also important to factor in the processing time. TPE sex dolls can be processed fast, usually in as little as 3 to 5 days. However, silicone sex dolls usually take more than 20 days to process. You should keep this mind when deciding on which lifelike sex doll to purchase.

Do you want to use it for a short time or a long time?

The longevity of the sex doll is also something that you should keep in mind and this directly depends on the type of material used in making the sex doll. If you are looking for a sex doll that you can use for a less than a year, we recommend buying one that is made from TPE plastic. However, if you are looking for a long lasting and premium quality sex doll that you can use for years, a silicone sex doll is the way to go.
