A night where my inner foodie shined

October 8, 2015

I was thrilled to attend the 2nd annual Tourism awards put on by The Trinidad Hotel, Restaurants & Tourism Association (THRTA). The evening was beautiful and I must say it was quite the gala. I give it up to the ladies who were dressed to the nines, the gents who looked very dapper and the décor that seem to fit perfectly. The evening started with a champagne cocktail hour, which was divine, however the highlight of the evening, especially for…

My three favorite shopping stops in Trinidad

September 23, 2015

One thing of the first things I noticed about Trinidad is how fashionable the people are. In Winnipeg, when I stepped out of my house to head to Walmart or the movies I’d be in sweats, runners and generally have messy hair. This is not a phenomena you will see here, which might be a good thing, people of Trinidad have an amazing sense of style when it comes to all facets of their life, here is a few of…

Tamnak Thai on a Wednesday

August 11, 2015

Now, Let me start by saying, I have been eying this restaurant for almost a year now. As some of you know, I adore Thai food. Since traveling to Thailand in 2008, I have an appreciation for the exquisite taste that Thai cuisine offers and I must say Tamnak Thai arose to the occasion. Within minutes of our arrival, we were greeted with a warm welcome from a waiter, and seated  promptly (we did not have a reservation). The restaurant…

Cheers to long weekends in Mayaro

April 11, 2015

    When I think of Mayaro I think of two words Relaxation, and Beach. According to the locals Mayaro is all about community, family, a good cold beer and island life at its finest. If driving down to Mayaro from the north side of Trinidad, you are in for a treat. You will have the pleasure of driving through Manzanilla, which boosts, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful drives in the country. Thousands of Palm trees line…
