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

Hello people of the world! Lol. I am writing today because yesterday I did not have the time to write anything because I finished my internship pretty late traveled back home from Amsterdam with transportation. Then my roommate had Norwegian family friends visiting the house to who I spoke to for quite some time before they left and later ate some food. By the time I’m done I had totally forgot to write a post. Sorry, Gomen de (ごめんで)… Continue reading

I am a DC Pearls Nominee!

Hello everyone! Although, it is no longer Friday, I would like to share some news with you, my blog followers and readers. I have been nominated for the Dutch Caribbean Pearls an event organised for Dutch Caribbean students or professionals who have achieved something while living in the Netherlands after leaving our homes in the Caribbean.

There are 7 Categories and they are: 1. Student, 2. Literature and Arts, 3. Music and Entertainment, 4. Science, 5. Sports, 6. Entrepreneurship, and 7. Socially. I was nominated in the category of Literature and Arts because I published my first mini- (poetry) book, I’m Only Human, earlier this year and that is seen as an achievement as a young adult coming from the Dutch islands.
