Location:
Soka in Moka is held on Trinity courts, school compound. There is usually ample parking at the field opposite the school but for some reason this year parking was diverted before the golf course with a shuttle service to the venue. We parked and shuttled but it was baffling as to why some cars were being allowed to park on the field and some were asked to stop short and shuttle. This caused an unusual traffic pile up from earlier than usual.


Ambiance/Décor:
There was no overwhelming theme but the layout as always was conducive to eating, drinking and partying. The very popular Chinese Food station was located at the top of the stairs with tents flanking the perimeter, dancing area in the middle and stage facing south.

Bar:
I had no trouble getting service at the bar, there was the standard fare of vodka, rum and Johnnie Walker which unfortunately ran out later in the night. 



Food:
Personally I had no issues with the food options even though there were longer lines at some tents that others; you had a choice of Gyros/Kebabs, Sea Food Cocktails, Chinese, Indian/Roti, Stuffed Crab and Dumpling, Roast Pork,Creole and local sweets in addition to ice cream and other options I am positive I missed.



Performances:
Unfortunately we missed Dil E Nadan and Iwer but were up front and center for Roy Cape All Stars. Roy Cape featuring Blaxx gave a stellar performance and the crowd loved all the other artistes who got stage time to perform especially Faye Ann and Bunji who thrilled the crowd with just a few lines from Differentology.


Kes was good, however he has a lot of new songs in his repertoire and I am just only getting familiar with them all so I was not into his performance as I usually am. By the end of the season I am positive I will know ALL his new songs.


Crowd Vibe:
With Yeah, carded for the same date, being canceled the crowd in my opinion was larger than usual as Moka was the only option on that Sunday. Mixed crowd, somewhat mellow when there were not performances with people liming and mingling. Once the performers came on however everyone had a great time.




Eye Candy
Depends on what you are looking for, several lovely ladies were well decked out and there were a smattering of younger guys but the crowd tended to be geared to distinguished older gentlemen and women.



Bathroom:
Andyloos were used, though the AC was not working they were kept clean and never any long lines to get an available one. 


Overall Rating:
I would give Moka a 7.5 out of 10. It was my first fete of the season so it was like both an introduction and warm up at the same time. There was nothing to complain about overall I just felt like the energy levels were mellow. The best part for me was Roy Cape's performance, excellent show.


Du Jour Fete Choice: 
The Du Jour Team chooses this photo of a lovely patron at the Soka in Moka event, because it shows one simple fact- a short, sleek look can also work at a fete! We love the no-fuss feel that allows for any girl on the go during Carnival can easily flat iron and be on the move. This hair definitely embodies our 100% Virgin Malaysian straight hair, that gives you an effortless & polished look for an all-inclusive party, whenever you need it. It's a great start to the season! When your hair can be admired as fete-ready for C2K13, you know she's making HER lifestyle Our Business!
