It’s Friday (yay!) and in the U.S. it is the start of a long weekend! It’s is Memorial Day weekend and it is also the unofficial start of summer although from the weather we have been having, spring wants to hang around as long as possible.
Can you believe it? The holidays are here! It’s Christmas! C’est Noël!
This is my favourite time of year. I simply love it. The memories, the sights, the sounds, the food of Christmases past continue to stay with me. For me it is not even about the getting of gifts, it’s the whole atmosphere, the feelings, the parang and the pastelles!
So that is what I am looking forward to this weekend. Christmas. I am home with my family in Trinidad and I am excited.
So best wishes from me to you. Let me know what is your favourite dish for Christmas?
It’s the dog days of summer! It’s the middle of summer and there is so much happening! And it’s really hot! Just as I like it…so here are a few things that I am looking forward to this weekend in NYC. And just a heads up…look out for my post of the Manus x Machina exhibit at The Met featuring some special nail art!
I have been waiting for this for MONTHS! A 2 day event in Brooklyn celebrating the beauty and diversity of cuisine from the African continent. I am so ready to learn so much and eat even more. Being from the Caribbean, our food is heavily influenced by West African cuisine. There may be tickets available so check out the website here.
I am a big time sports lover! And not just during major events! If I am not blogging, I am watching sports. So I will be watching the Games of the 31st Olympiad. Swimming is wrapping up and the Track & Field events will be starting this weekend.
What are you doing this weekend?

It’s finally Memorial Day weekend here in the US, and just in time, the weather decides to behave itself and we finally have some sun and some heat in NYC! I have been waiting for this extra day off since the last long weekend, lol! It just so happens that this is a long weekend in Trinbago as they had Corpus Christi and Indian Arrival Day. Also, it is the Spring Bank holiday in the UK. This is a true, true “whey de lime”!
So here are 5 things that I am looking forward to this weekend:
This final is the Madrid derby! There will be a massive parade in Madrid coming up this week, but for which side of town? #HalaMadrid
I am going to my university Reunions, which I think is rather unique, in that it is a 3-day event. With a parade…and live performances! I can’t wait to see some folks that I have not seen in years! #IvyTiger #BlackIvy #Princeton
Wow! Happy New Year! I swear 2015 was the quickest year ever! Things moved at lightening speed! I hope for great things for you and I want to thank everyone who has stuck around my corner of the internet!
New and better content and bigger things coming in 2016! I am excited for and très nervous about the possibilities that await, but as my Mum says, “Nothing ventured, nothing gained”.
