Summer Blog Challenge! {15 Interesting Facts!}


15 Things you do not know about me.

1.       I am one of 7 children. I have 3 brothers and 3 sisters and my mother is one of 13 children, so I have over 100 extended family members. It great to grow up with so many cousins, but it all kept you on the straight path because everything you did was reported back to my mother.

2.       My great-great-greatgran was a Carib Queen. This heritage is passed on to the women in the bloodline and my mother’s cousin just recently became the new queen. I tell people that they are dining with royalty as I am a Carib Princess.

3.       I paint with acrylics and I have a few of my painting hanging in my home. They are gift I did for my husband and he appreciates every one.

4.       I am a very confident driver. In my country you have to be because taxi and maxi drivers act as if you own the road. So I think if you really want it, well you are going to have to work for it because I have every right to it as you do!

5.       I am a product of a half Chinese mother and a Scottish/Spanish father so my siblings all look different. Luckily I resemble my father the most so at least I tell people I am definitely confirm I am my father’s child… I do not know about the rest of them! Honestly we are called a Callaloo family.

6.       I am slightly OCD and like to see my home clean and tidy. This is a problem when you live with 2 kids and a husband. The funny thing is after they turn the house upside-down they expect me to know where to find what they are looking for.

7.       I watched the full seasons of Dawson’s Creek last month. For some reason I was craving seeing those crazy teenage kids fight over each other. Honestly I was a fan and apparently still is.

8.       I read Twilight series at least once a year. I also reread constantly the Bronte collection.

9.       I am a closet Vampire and zombie freak. I cannot watch it with the kids around and my husband does not care for them. What can I say… I like a little scare every now and then.

10.   If I am flipping through the channels and come across Pirate of the Caribbean, Harry Potter, or Lord of the Rings series on TNT I have to watch it. Even when the Ads drive me crazy I just love to watch them.

11.   My favorite food is burgers and fries. So while trying to diet… I must have it at least every other week. (I lie at least once a week.)

12.   I am left handed but this was forced because the nanny who was taking care of me and my sister were both forced to write with our left hand.

13.   My favorite singers are Bruno Mars, Adele and One Republic.

14.   I believe in spirits and the power of prayer.

15.   I love to play carnival and I get to indulge in it by the grace of my family who keeps the kids and lets me feel free again. There is nothing that can describe wearing a little 2 piece costume and dancing all day in the street. It is liberating… it is fun and it is our culture.

  3. Very interesting tidbits! I didn't much get into the Twilight books but liked the movies. I like scary and supernatural movies and books. So excited for the new season of True Blood to start next week.
    I'm left handed as well. Thankfully, I wasn't forced to be.

  6. I agree, blogging is fun! I never imagined before I started that I would actually become comfortable sharing my thoughts with anyone who would read them. It's the writer's mindset, I suppose.

My Version of Fall.

I have been seeing on other blogs beautiful pictures of the ever changing and eye stimulating Fall season. Honestly living in Trinidad limits your experiences of the changing seasons and seeing how spring turns to summer to fall and then winter. All I have is endless summer greenery. All I have is the constant warm weather and lush green rain forests.

So I have been living vicariously through other blog admiring the Fall pictures and sometimes questioning if it is really true. Then I had a beautiful sunny day yesterday and got to spend the day just lying on a beach and soaking in the sun. So I decided to give you all my version of Fall. And see what we get during the Fall Season.

Enjoy.


 I visited a beach house in Blanchisseuse Beach and it was attached to 3 different bays. It was fun just splashing in the waves, and fun exploring each bay in the warming sun.


This was a bird's eye view of the bay that had clear green water and little watery caves to hide under. My son really liked…

Hate is a strong word.

When you live on a small island like I do in Trinidad, you really do not want to be too outspoken about terrible things happening to someone you know, because it is almost as if you are talking about it happening in your own backyard. But the fact is, terrible things do happen and unfortunately it sometimes happen to people you know or people who you cannot ignore.

In the last month there was a unforgettable incident of a little girl being attacked and physically taken advantage of ... and this rocked out entire community. Mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts, granddaughters and friends were really disturbed about the attack... because you do feel as if it has happened in your back yard! For a few weeks no one felt safe in their own homes and everyone was whispering about the ever changing rumors of the whereabouts of a man, who manage to physically hurt 1 and mentally hurt 100s.

In my heart I do feel sorry for the young girl and pray that through God, family and friends she can be a su…
