For holiday partiers with a Portie itch, sweet relief came last Easter Sunday with the return of the all-inclusive beach bash Marbana at Frenchman’s Cove. The much-anticipated calendar staple — celebrating its fourth year — was a success with streams of sun-loving pleasure seekers pouring into the Sheldon Codner-styled oceanfront venue. Theirs was a call to order to relish the party favours of multiple CPJ watering holes inclusive of the Grey Goose, Dewars Scotch, Trapiche Win ... Read More

Sunday, April 23, 2017    


Customs manager and figure athlete Racquel Neath — wearing an ASOS bikini — breaks from the party to spend a little time with us at Marbana’s latest staging on the sands of Frenchman’s Cove in Portie. What drink makes you feel your most engaged? J Wray & Nephew White Overproof Rum & coconut water. Who or what should take credit for helping to shape your idea of body image? I have always been active. However, my friend Dania Beckford suggested that I enter the ... Read More

My Kingston Farwell - Andrey Dryakin

Sunday, April 23, 2017    

Kingston Farewell
Andrey Dryakin, outgoing head of consular section/press attache, Russian Embassy in Jamaica (JOL)

What surprised you most about Jamaica, in terms of expectations? I believe that the potential and “depth” of Jamaica as an island and Jamaicans as a nation in Eurasia is strongly underestimated. The perception that most of my friends and I used to have before visiting “mi yard” was inevitably connected to drugs and criminal activities, because those are the things that for some reason mostly come up when Googling. After living here for almost five years, I would like to ... Read More

An iridescent purple glow vividly contrasted against the white Kohler-branded building on Constant Spring Road last Thursday evening, drawing immediate attention from motorists in the slow-moving traffic on the busy city thoroughfare. The night-time display signalled the preview opening of the Kohler showroom in St Andrew for an intimate grouping of architects, realtors, hardware owners, project developers, and others. The showroom is housed adjacent to Tile City and Home Centre, owned by the ... Read More

Vanda orchids

Dear Orchid Doc: My mother has an abundance of orchids. Alas, she’s a busy woman and has little time to take care of them. I am a lover of orchids and as such would like to care of them. First things first - how do I know when to repot orchids? Cidnie Marie Dear Cidnie Marie: Some orchids love a tight pot, but remember they need good air circulation, which they get via the roots. Having said that, please be guided by the roots. They will indicate when they have outgrown the pots. Ano ... Read More

Headlined by vodka brand Absolut, the I Love Soca cooler fête series officially expanded into a festival on Wednesday, days ahead of Kingston’s Carnival climax. As bring-your-own-bottle-toting socaphiles mangled, in-demand genre disc jocks and recording artistes ably maintained an air of the familiar. Saturday Social shines the spotlight on partygoers at the downtown Kingston waterfront venue. Read More

Simma Soupery & Bakery is the brainchild of Dean Kirkland. As a lover of good hearty Jamaican soups and a maker of same, he realised that the overall ability to get a variety of soups was lacking on the Kingston food scene. The regular choice was always red peas and chicken, and a few others by chance. Simma hoped to provide a wide selection on a daily basis by serving seven freshly prepared soups, in order to give the consumer choices. Simma Soupery & Bakery opened its doors in August ...
