With no running water and available restrooms. Yikes!
hey topitambu: how are you? Hope you and the family are all well. Hey, yes I agree that T&T is a great place to live, I will always love my island and, believe it or not still promote it and it's culture very highly. I do admit that I am so disappointed with the type of crime and the extent at which the criminals are daring to take. Look at last week where a young man was killed on Sunday when they shot one brother and let another run. What is happening? Why can't the police put a handle on the crime, is it that they are too corrupted? Why can't citizens come together and report what they have witnessed, is it because that they are too scared to say anything? I don't know Topi, I am just so tired of the crime, and there is a lot we are not hearing about. I had stopped blogging because of the disgust, I had even stopped reading the papers. Anyway Topi you keep good and safe, take care. God Bless.
I have not blogged for years but this one brought me out. I am so disgusted that the way my sweet T&T has become, that I would not want my dog to be living there.
After reading of the accomplishments of these fine young men who I can tell contributed positive, good things to society, I can only now hang my head in shame and disbelief for my once sweet island. Jerome and Dale, I read where you all were very dedicated church going guys, May the Blessed Mother and Jesus hold you dearly in their arms, and I pray for your parents,sisters, brothers, cousins and family that God gives them the strength to bear this burden. Rest in Paradise now Dale & Jerome.
lol, doh make meh laugh dis earrrrrrly Saturday morning nah!!!!
I thought it was just us here that noticed that. Every time, they say it we crack up. It sounds so " chupid !!!!" lol
lol, ah love it. I have American friends who want to speak with my accent. You know what, I teach them a lot of my slangs and they absolutely love it. Read my blogs up there, I also mentioned about Salandy. I think he wants to be Al Roker, the weather man from NBC. lol
Darby, lol, you are cracking me up this time of the morning. Talking about the southern accent, how about some grits and biscuit, corn bread, fried chicken and collard greens all cooked by Paula Deen . lol.
Patrick you are so correct, I love Sprangalang. Have you ever heard Salandy on CCN TV6 say "Trinidad and Tobago". You would absolutely crack up! I have no idea where he got his accent. Also, can't remember her name, she is the news anchor on that same channel. The news anchors crack me up, they are never consistent with their accents. lol.
I love my Trini accent. I have lived abroad for over 25 years and will never give up my accent. Most people who hear me speak, absolutely love my accent. I will say though, when I listen to some of those news reporters on Trini TV or radio, I often wonder what part of the world they are from; everyone of them have a foreign accent, I do laugh most of the time because they sometimes forget, switch back and forth and, mispronounce the words. (CCN TV6, Power 102 FM etc). I have also noticed that a lot of Trinis are trying to speak with a Jamaican accent. So sad when you have something so unique and sexy that you give it up, and end up sounding so false and comical. You can speak properly without changing your accent.
exactly, the law stinks, the judges stinks. Ah just hoping it is not one of those judges my grandfather use to feed while he was growing up. My grandfather who was a farmer would plant his garden and give away to all of those parents who could not feed their families. A number of those children turned out to be lawyers, doctors etc. I hope they remembered kindness.
