Soka in Moka... dissapointing
For the past few days i have only been able to recognize a plethora of disappointing reviews for Soka in Moka. This annual all- inclusive struck gold in the bad books of Trinidadians and feters. However, there was one semi negative/ positive report when the Trinidad Guardian Pulse Writer cast his views on the fete in today's Guardian
If Sunday's Soka in Moka is an indication of what can be expected in coming all- inclusive fetes for C2K8, by Carnival Weekend "who ain't dead, go be badly wounded."
Judging from the reaction of the people to the music and ambiance, seems that Trinis, especially or beautiful women, have been starving for some hot and spicy party action.
celebrating Trinity College's 50Th anniversary, principal LLewelyn Mc Intosh and VP Janice Richards pulled out all stops to ensure that patrons making the trek up to the scenic hills of Maraval were fully satisfied.
The food by Grannie's and bar services provided by B.A.R.S. were spot on, as were the peripheral delicacies, including a confectionery stall with toolum, sugar cake and fudge and Carol's shark 'n' bake.
An impressive fireworks display also marked the occasion.
In the music department, DJ Hurricane George helped save the day as the live acts sounded as though they were still under the influence of the festive season and not yet in full stride for C2K8.
The first all-inclusive of the season it was attended by President Max Richards and his wife Dr. Jean Ramjohn Richards; attorney general Bridgette Annisette- George; National Security Minister Martin Joseph; and Minister of State in the Ministry of Culture Donna Cox. Also seen in the mix were Liz Montano (Machel's mom); and visiting Hollywood actress Lorraine Toussant, a daughter of the soil who's starred on the silver screen and television' s Saving Grace and Ugly Betty, and CeCe Vandeveer (real name Nancy Snyder), who stars in Law & Order and The Shield.
Actually the madness of the fete scene has only begun and next up is tonight's St. Francois all- inclusive at St. John's ambulance Hall on Fitzblackman drive in Woodbrook, followed by QRC Foundation's Outta de Blue tomorrow.
In related News, the organisers of Hilarians' all- inclusive have shifted the venue from their January 12 event, from the Stadium to QRC grounds.
Its a long story.
