Warrior Spirit

I was just looking through today's Express and saw this Digicel ad. featuring Destra in Warrior Spirit costume!

She looks very nice don't you think? While doing the roll call last night for which band people are playing with she mentioned that she might be playing with TRIBE but has not made up her mind as yet. I wonder if she plays if it will be in Warrior Spirit and as a spokeswoman for Digicel if it is a conflict of interest with her playing in Island People (which she did last year) seeing as that band is sponsored by B Mobile and Machel is their spokesperson.

ONE fete

What can I say about ONE fete? It was great!! Though tickets were selling outside the Oval last night for $400.00 the $250.00 I paid was well worth it. For the price I was not expecting such an array of food; there were tented food stations offering West Indian, Chinese, Arabic, Spanish and East Indian cuisine in addition to a meat station, bake and shark, ribs, deserts and Haggen Daz ice cream. The hubby went wild, if it’s one thing he loves to do is eat and there were more than enough choices last night to satisfy him. The only criticism I had where the food was concerned was that there was no where to sit and eat. I guess space was an issue so they scattered round podium style tables near the food court, where you still had to stand and eat, but at least had a place to rest your drinks, of course those tables were always occupied. Drinks were as expected, Johnny walker, 1919 rum, Malibu, Absolut among other brands, I was quite satisfied but there was no Baileys to the disappointment of my liming blogger “no longer anon”.

On that note I have to say I met “socaholic” last night while she was waiting for friends outside the Oval. The hair gave her away, that and the fact that she told me what colour she would be wearing. After seeing her then I never saw her again for the rest of the night! Where were you girl? Upon entering the Oval I met up with “no longer anon” and both she and her boyfriend limed with the hubby and me for most of the evening. I have to say Kudos to “Jamette” the girl came looking for me and found me to the front of the stage, never saw her again after that either. I did not meet “trinigee” though he told me he was going to be there. Maybe next time ‘gee!

I also did not expect the L’oreal tent offering makeup and hair styling! You could not miss it as it was on the way to the ladies toilets and they had additional full length mirrors which came in handy to supplement the ones by the toilet. Next to the makeup tent was a photo booth with triniscene.com photographers providing printed digital photos of yourself; this is a trend I first saw at Amnesia last year, and seems like it’s a staple of the all-inclusive fete now.

When we arrived Kes the Band was on stage, though he is not one if my favourite performers I did enjoy his performance last night, though he was on while hubby was making his rounds of the food tents. Eventually we moved forward for Rikki Jai, Iwer, Dawg E Slaughter and Maximus Dan who all made a guest appearance with Kes. Dwag E LSaughter was great, I really love "Soca in Meh Blood" ! I totally missed Sherwayne Winchester’s on stage, I cannot recall if that was when I took a trip to the ladies but somehow I remembered him coming on stage and within what felt like minutes he was gone!

Surprisingly the performance I enjoyed the most was Destra! Since I saw her last week at UWI there has been some change to her demeanor. Last night she was full of energy and I was to the front of the stage to witness the change. Judging from the crowd close to where I was everyone had a really good time when she was on stage. I make no apologies for my behaviour last night, if sorry to say I misbehaved for Destra to the fullest!

I intended to secure that same position for Machel’s performance, but I was mobbed by an influx of Machel fans who bum rushed the front of the stage and eventually I had to filter out to the side when he came on. Madness is the ONLY way to describe it! Every flag and rag was in the air for “Higher than High”. As much as I love Machel the performer there was something missing, for me, last night. I was expecting so much and he only delivered half of that. Still, it was an enjoyable performance but not 100% there yet for me as yet.

So, that is my recap of ONE fĂȘte; overall I had an excellent time and it just goes to show, a “cheaper” all-inclusive can be just as good as or even better than the “ultra-inclusives”. Even though UWI was free I still had a better time at ONE ! And I did end up wearing the original outfit I had planned last night!
