  • BLOOD MONEY

    Protoje’s new single “Blood Money” is a perfectly aimed shot at the Government, and the injustice at large in Jamaica but who the cap fits, let them wear it. With the mellow instrumental and defined bass you wouldn’t believe how much truth, as unfortunate as it is, is addressed in just over 3 minutes. From money […]

  • One One Coco

    Hi everyone! I’m introducing a new feature to my blog titled “One Coco” which was inspired by the Jamaican Proverb “One, one coco full basket.” It simply means success cannot be achieved over night, work on it, little by little to achieve your goal. This feature will show my effort to support the (informal) #BuyJamaicanBuildJamaica initiative, which is supporting Jamaican brands […]

  • Gloria's Seafood

    I went to THE Gloria’s Seafood restaurant for the first time last week. My aunt is in Jamaica for vacation, and she was hell-bent on going there for some fried fish. The drive from my house to Port Royal took us about 45 minutes. We weren’t completely sure where we were going but we found it; […]

  • Expression Wednesdays

    I have bad news everyone; with Jamaicans across the island pondering whether to roast or fry breadfruit, I fear we will soon come to an end, as a nation. The sun is so hot, persons are melting at a rapid pace, everyday. With hot heads roaming the streets and the high levels of hype gas, […]

  • Bacchanal Beach J'ouvert

    Since 2016 is the year to ‘Get There’ or ‘Shoot Your Shot’ I had decided this was the year I was going to have my first Beach J’ouvert experience. I had heard so many good stories, I had to go, and that I did 🙂 Beach J’ouvert is one of the parties put on by […]

  • Pizza Please!

    One can never get too old for ice cream! I’m sure everyone has heard about the famous Devon House I-Scream, as a matter of fact The Food Herald did a post about it recently, check it out here: “Devon House Creamery.” Devon House is one of Jamaica’s National Monuments, it was coined as such in 1990. It was built by Jamaica’s first […]

  • The Genesis

    Hey everyone! The theme for Reggae Month 2016 is ‘Reggae Mekyah‘ I like it 🙂 Ziggy Marely’s 1991 studio album with the Melody Makers was titled “Jahmekya” and people take the title and run with it, as it’s a nice term, ‘JahMekYah‘ (Jamaica) which means “Jah made here.” Now let’s get straight into it, in last week’s […]

  • Expression Wednesdays

    I have a few qualms about this Reggae Month. First off the location for the Reggae Wednesday concerts have been moved from the Ranny Williams Centre, Hope Road to the Nelson Mandela Park, Half Way Tree, two of my friends and I were preeing the calendar to see what this year looked like… and when […]
