Happy Saba Day!

Hello tomodachi’s

How is everyone doing? If you can tell by the title of this post today is Saba Day and it is one of the few reasons to celebrate today. And my way of celebrating my island’s day is doing what I do best and that is, of course, writing poetry.

WhatisAngieuptoMondays: I had quite a productive weekend.

Hello, new readers and readers who have stuck around with me for some time until now, good evening and welcome. How was your weekend? Was your weekend as productive as mine? Honestly, my weekend has been quite productive if I do say so myself. More  productive than it has ever been in a long time. Not to mention, I am now working as an au pair (YAY!) and after that job I had to travel by train to attend volleyball practice on late Friday afternoon in preparation for the sports day occurring the next day.

Today is Saba Day!

Hello everyone! TGIF. I hope you are having a great Friday wherever part of the world you may be. Today is going to be a little short and brief. I just wanted to say that today is my island’s national holiday although the day is almost over on this side of the world.

Every first Friday of December we Sabans celebrate Saba Day. It is our holiday and we have the day off, although I didn’t because I am living in the Netherlands and also was at my internship at Spotzer Media today. 😥

Not to mention in the past on Saba Day, other Sabans also living in the Netherlands would come and celebrate it together, but not this year. It was a little sad, but well, at least I went to a Japanese restaurant (went to Wagamama again 🙂 ) and ate some delicious food to commemorate the occasion.  Continue reading

A big thank you to those of you who voted for me for the DC Pearls event!

Hello all. I just wanted to inform everyone that unfortunately I did not win the nominations for the DC Pearls event, but nonetheless it was a good night. I went along with my very good friend Kelley, and we enjoyed ourselves. So all was not lost, lol. 😛

I was little disappointed, though, that I did not get the chance to promote my work due to certain unexpected events that occurred and that was the whole reason why I was so enthusiastic about the event. I was thinking that I would finally get  a chance to promote my work in an official setting but it was for naught. However, things happen and it is not the end of the world. Another chance will most likely come around where I will be able to promote myself and my work properly. Continue reading

Just One More Day Left Before the Dutch Caribbean Pearls Event!

Hello all! Just as the title suggests tomorrow evening is the big night! It will be the announcement of the Dutch Caribbean Pearls winners! It’s so exciting! 😀 It’s practically just a couple of hours away! Not even a full day away.

Anyway, just yesterday my short promo video was published on YouTube (The other nominees videos have also been published). Please take a look at the video below and also check out the other nominees videos if you have the chance. They are all very inspiring people if I’m allowed to say so! Continue reading
