Now Queen Destra was supposed to perform ... but we still waiting ...
After a long long long pause ... so long we had time to eat food, drink shots, stand up and ol' talk in the back, make new friends, wine up on old friends ... on stage came the Soca Monarch champion ... Machel HD ... yes all heavens and high hell, angels and beelzebubs alike ... advantage champion ... well here we have it ... Normally one of the best performances Machel ever gives every season is at girl power ... this one however was more about him and winning the soca monarch ...
We will admit as usual he sings all the way until the sun arises ... and so he did ... What was amazing though ... even when they stopped playing music ... Machel HD and the ENTIRE family I swear ... were on the stage singing and stamping accapella to "Advantage" ... it was remarkable at the pure sheer euphoria of winning a competition that has eluded him so much ... take win Boy-Boy!
Oh and lets have a round of applause for madame female prime minister ... whats her name ... For bringing the cheque onto the stage to present it to Machel for winning! Kudos ...
FOOD & DRINKS:
With all sorts of food and drinks available depending on the section of the party that your ticket allowed you in ... the Ultra inclusive side of the fete did not let me down one bit ... courteously lining up for my Accra and my Bake And Shark and lets not forget the Gourmet Doubles at 7:00am ... Yes thats correct ... doubles with Goat or Beef ... JAH!!!! Belly Lashers!!! Bang Bang!!
Well ... ticket in hand you know what that means? Entry By The Door ... Was it easy to get drinks ... I am not sure on that one ... Drinks were just ending up in my hand ...Although I did partake in the Carib Stall ... and well Drinks WERE FLOWING ... Food line was not long either but when it was long it was definitely flowing and moving ... However, drawing near to the end of the night ... I noticed some Bar issues ... but hey its the end of the fete ... GO HOME!
Honestly ... and I say this from the bottom of my black scornful heart ... whatever the price you paid for the "Ultra Inclusive" ... you would have definitely got your money's worth ... Furthermore, you would have gotten MORE than your money's worth if you were GREEDY!!!
Possibly ... the strangest Girl Power we have ever been too ... Even the after party in the road was strange ... lol ... Cars were not allowed to pass ... Man was wining on the hood of trucks ... even cricket stars of the world were wining low on the road ... That being said ... STILL ... Hope 2012 is Better!
