Mas boots in Toronto

I love mas boots but this year I have opted to go with the sneaker option, however these are some boots available for those of you living in Toronto. The supplier visits Trinidad every Easter for 2-3 weeks, he can take measurements then and Fedex or deliver later.They are beautiful. They are priced at 100 to $150 CAD. The contact number for the supplier is 416 524 1782 ask for Anton. OMG!! I am loving them, they are so neatly made.

The theory of the carnival baby

The phenomenon of the “Carnival baby,” a child conceived at Carnival time, is supposed to put a significant bump in Trinidad’s birth-rate in November, nine months after Carnival. Is this true?? Does sexual activity increase during the carnival season?. I agree that street dancing is hard to distinguish from sexual intercourse (aside from the lack of penetration) but does that lead people to actually commit the act?

Now I personally have never been driven to have extra sexual activity during carnival, actually I think I have less. When I get home from carnival days or when I attend a fete, the only thing I think about is getting into my bed and sleeping. Do you think that your sexual activity is heightened during the carnival period? Do you think that there could be another factor affecting this increase in births around this time, Valentines Day maybe?

Mr. Machel Montano

Well everyone who has been reading this blog knows that I am a Montano fan. I even skip to the beat of Machel. Well On Friday I decided to go on a girl’s night to check out the living room, the new club in Arima. I was in the VIP and I left there to go into the general section just to get in front to see Mr. .Montano perform his two new chunes.

Patrice and Zan performed first, even thought I respect Patrice’s talent I just wanted to get to see my sugar boy..sugar boy. Anyways eventually Machel made his way unto the stage. I was there in front wining in all my glory as he sang one more time.. one last wine..

Machel stopped singing and started to insult this triniscene photographer a kind of “ strapped” built person,. The guy was there minding his own business doing his job and Machel stopped and said “U, yuh see U... u too big to be in front here.. yuh like ah bear”. I stoped wining immediately. The whole crowd laughed at him, I felt it for him and didn’t laugh,I was just very disgusted. That was just strike one.

The singer continued and by this time I was no longer enjoying his performance, he raised his shirt showing off his nipple ring and behaving real vulgar. Then some girl in the crowd shouted big up to the $ 70 patrons (general ) and then Machel said “big up to all the $70 dollar patrons , Trinidad have money and if anybody say they poor in this time , allyuh playing de arse” This one was where I drew the line and stopped enjoying myself totally, Is almost like this man is not living in Trinidad’s reality . The truth is that a lot of people’s skies have fallen due to the increase in food prices and prices in general . I myself have seen the effect of inflation.. I was so appauled I felt like leaving the club one time. Pronto!!.

Anyways needless to say I stayed for the third strike, the stage was only one step off the floor where the patrons were. Machel started to wining in front of this girl and motioned his crutch toward her mouth area.. WTF!!. The girl was a decent respectable soul and moved away.. Another girl jumped up and started to wine with her face to his crutch. Even though Machel had part to blame the second girl just had no respect for herself!

After Friday night Machel’s image was tainted in my book and I respect him for his ability associated with his music and also his ability to carry a crowd. I now like Machel alot less than I did before Friday night.

Back on Track!

Well the last couple weeks were rough, besides the tragic death of two of my family members, my mum also had an emergency surgery at the St. Clair medical. I took some leave to deal with my grieving and ended up having to take more to deal with my mother’s illness. It has been hard but I am back on track now, I want to say thanks for the enquires about my safety. I love you guys!!!. Anyways on with the carnival shit talk!!!.
