    Ultimate Lime 2012 : Hyatt Regency Trinidad … Yet another “Be Seen” fete

    Well typical overpriced fete …but well organized, good food and definitely unlimited drinks down the line. Now the definition of “Liming” in Trinidad, is really where a bunch of friends or family gather for a nice little intimate time together. This was definitely not a small lime, when you think of the definition … One of things I really couldn’t …

    Passing time at De Rock Beach Bar on Accra Beach in Barbados

    Anytime I’m in Barbados for a quick one nighter, I’m always stopping in at De Rock Beach Bar in Bridgetown after walking down the boardwalk … just before sunset. It’s at the end of the Hastings Boardwalk at Accra Beach. De Rock Beach Bar is a tiny little bar but she does serve up some food or more importantly will have someone …

    8 types of travellers that I’ve seen in the airport

    As a frequent flyer, I spend a LOT of time in airports. Travelling is cool when you actually get somewhere, but the process of actually getting to where you want to be, can be a mind blowingly frustrating or boring experience. So I have a great game you can play when you’re stuck in the airport with nothing to do because …

    Every man should pack the following 9 items for Trinidad Carnival …

    As I typed the title of this post, I do know that it sounds slightly off … and no this post is not about packing men into your bags (Ladies or gentlemen) … The most popular question I’ve gotten from friends and strangers alike for Carnival is “What to wear?” I’m only going to answer this from the male perspective, …

    Soca in Moka 2012 … so you’re looking for tickets?

    I’ve compiled a couple years of photos on Soca in Moka below. I assume that you’re here because you’re looking for tickets for the fete. I’m not here to tell you the fete is overpriced and that it has been overrated for years, because if you’re looking for tickets, then you don’t care about the price of these all inclusives. …

    Guest Post : Stay somewhere different with AirBnB

    Travelling the world is one of those things we all want to do, and its something that many of us take time to plan, plan and plan even more.  Half of the planning goes into “Where to go” and the other half is “Where to stay”. As a travel addict (like Rishi), we’ve travelled all over India and a number …

    Trinis like salt!! And I’m number 6 in the world … woot!!

    In Trinidad, we have a cliche… “Trinis like salt … cause they in eeeeeverything!” … Sometimes I wonder what the hell I’m doing in some places myself. I’ve lived in Montreal for a couple years and I survived the great Montreal Icestorm (which really wasn’t that great … but losing electricity across the city makes you understand how pathetic and …

    I am a food douche … fuh real … and I make no apologies

    I started watching a movie this weekend …  this insipid Woody Allen movie called “Midnight in Paris” … it was so fucking stupid … I couldn’t even get through the first 20 minutes before getting annoyed … and the reviews talk about the charm and other nonsense … but the awesome part was the character Micheal Sheen played (this douche …

    I want to be the most travelled Trinidadian in the world …

    There … I said it! It’s not some huge achievement … it’s really just a goal. So I’m aiming to hit my 100th country before 40 (6 years from now), which shouldn’t be a difficult goal, but then the most difficult commodity to find in your 30’s is actually time! All the social pressures are multiplied and the gloves come …
