I am a proud Jamaican! I love being an islander and I love that my island is such a big melting pot rich in culture. This love of country has been the boost I needed to get to know it even better. Like any good relationship…you can never know too much about your partner (hahahahaha).
So last weekend I found myself in the Western End of my fair isle. I drove clear across Jamaica to simply spend time with my friend & fellow blogger Shani (sunipink.wordpress.com) & support the Rotaract Club of Hanover’s Uniform Party in Lucea, Hanover! This was my first time in Lucea! *happy dance*
I took the bus from Downtown Kingston ($650 ride to my thing yo!) around 4:30 p.m. (I don’t know why I love night travels). I sat beside a Spanish man who spoke no English! Talk about communication challenges! Any how, the journey was quite easy except the Mount Rosser leg!. Lately, I’ve noticed that the trip up that winding road is becoming a task and a half….Thank Jesus I don’t drive. I got to Mobay by 8:15 P.M. and the driver & conductor were so so so so nice! Everybody who knows me, knows I HATE the bus system…with a PASSION! So it was very refreshing to experience such politeness on such a long journey.
Instead of heading to Shani’s house, I headed to the Town Centre to meet a dear friend. We had dinner at the restaurant Nyam & Jam near Baywest Shopping centre (I only know Barnett Street so I can’t mention the street name). It’s a restaurant I always passed on previous visits but I never thought to eat there, I usually stick to the usual fast food options like BK & KFC. After that Fried Chicken I had there I will definitely be eating there again.
Day 2 a.k.a PARTAY DAYYYYY started pretty mild. A friend did some errands in Town. We stopped by Whitter Village (I really love that place) for a little while before heading to my favourite food spot…WENDY’S! *throws confetti* After lunch (at 5 PM!), we headed to Dead End on Gloucester Avenue (Bottom Road) to catch the sunset. One word…..BREATHTAKING! Here are a few pictures from the day:
The night’s main escapade was the Rotaract Club of Hanover’s Uniform Party in Lucea, Hanover. I am a character sometimes…lol…so I decided to wear my little brother’s Preparatory (elementary) school uniform and add my feminine touches. This was my first visit to Lucea, Hanover & I guess it wasn’t much of a visit really because we got there after Midnight. The town was fairly busy as that time. Pantucky was fresh in the air and people were just lyming.
Sunday was a very exciting day because we ventured to the Loreal Makeover Tour at Fontana Pharmacy. We started the day with breakfast at Wendy’s (I am so in LOVE!!!!). The Wendy’s experience was a trip because of a very interesting Vybz Kartel & Gaza Slim music video which was daring enough to consider Scamming a form of Reparation *blank stare*. Anyhow…. the whole Loreal Experience was amazingly documented by Shani so check out her blog for that fabulous review & video!

It was a fun & somewhat larger than life Sunday afternoon experience.The party wasn’t really my style but I made the best of it. Luckily, Miss Shani was all the entertainment I needed for the night! Nonstop vibes!
Unfortunately, I had to return to my fast -paced Kingston life. My trip to Mobay was yet again a wonderful experience greatly due to my dear friends Shani, Amani, Zaheer & Alwyn! Until we meet again Mobay…ONE LOVE.
