Suga’s Breakdown:

Lovers Leap has a breezy, breathtaking view of Jamaica’s southern coast stretching from Rocky Point, Clarendon in the east to Treasure Beach, St. Elizabeth in the west. It is truly the best view in Jamaica for Suga. I didn’t want to leave.

The restaurant by Lovers Leap is definitely another local hotspot in St. Elizabeth. The menu pleases the local crowd with favourites such as Fish Tea and Fritters to start with, followed by choices of Oxtail, Curried Goat, Fish any way you like it, with sides of festival, bammy and/or rice and peas.

The food was being served by buffet that Easter Sunday. I’m not sure if it was because it was a holiday, but we had to tell the server when to stop! Food was in abundance and it was juicy and tender to the bone. Real Jamaican style.

The story behind Lovers Leap

If you don’t remember the Legend of Lovers Leap, here you go!

Yardley Chase Plantation owner, Richard Chardley was in love with his housekeeper, Mizzy, but she was in love with another enslaved African, Tunkey from a neighbouring Plantation. Chardley was aware of this and planned to sell Tunkey to have Mizzy all for himself.

Mizzy and Tunkey decided to try and escape, but were chased to this site by the sea cliffs. In a final embrace, the lovers leapt to their death.

Suga’s Breakdown:

Jack Sprat Bar and Restaurant is known as the neighbourhood hotspot. The locals hit the rum bar or play ludi and dominos with music playing in the background. There were sufficient seating areas and I sat on the deck overlooking the sea.

They had an efficient system for taking your order and then getting your food to you in record time, regardless of the amount of persons there. By observation, there wasn’t the usual wait for fresh, grilled Seafood. The sizes of those fishes were off the plate! I had the Pizza, which they are also known for. It wasn’t the best or Italy’s finest, but it still hit the spot.

If you want to top things off, there is ice cream. Great, rustic, local spot for family and friends to gather, eat and have a good time.

Out of cash? No excuses, because Jack Sprat has an ATM! Jack Sprat Bar and Restaurant is value for money and is #SugaEndorsed.

Who has moved on to the next round in the NBA Playoffs?!

20190423_063907

The NBA PLAYOFFS had a predictable start, but the 2nd round match ups should be entertaining.

On the EAST side, the BUCKS will face the CELTICS. The RAPTORS should face the PHILADELPHIA 76ers. Even though the BUCKS are the no. 1 seed in the East, Suga thinks it will be the CELTICS vs. RAPTORS in the Eastern Conference Finals.
On the WEST side, the team most capable of beating the WARRIORS, the ROCKETS, are likely to meet them to have that chance. The TRAIL BLAZERS are looking good and should meet the winner of the SPURS – NUGGETS series.

Tonight’s Schedule!

The NBA Playoffs are on and Poppin!

IMG_20190416_071749_074.jpg

The NBA PLAYOFFS is on and poppin! Who you got?!
On the EAST side, the BUCKS have been blazing, the CELTICS are a dark horse, usually a playoff team and the RAPTORS should reach conference finals, but tend to choke choke choke.
On the WEST side, WARRIORS are still strong but Cousins went down last night with what may seem like a quad injury. The CLIPPERS erased a 31-pt deficit to beat them! James Harden and the ROCKETS always play well during the season, but will they finally deliver?! The TRAIL BLAZERS have been consistent this year unlike a disjointed OKC and I expect the SPURS to upset the young NUGGETS.

Stay tuned! I LOVE THIS GAME!

Phenomenal Women United SOLD OUT their Artwork!

20190413_170542
Gabby a.k.a Suga with members of the Rotaract Club of New Kingston and the young ladies of Phenomenal Women United celebrating after all of the artwork were sold out at Craft Cart Jamaica’s Pop Up Village last Saturday, April 13, 2019.

20190412_124134

Over the past 6 weeks, the young ladies from The Women’s Centre and Young Women’s Christian Association that dubbed themselves, Phenomenal Women United, showed significant growth in their approach towards art, their appreciation for their talents and the understanding that their efforts are what will yield results. Of course, there were some who learned faster than others, but in addition to learning artistic techniques, tips on entrepreneurship and customer service skills, they learnt how to have a sound work ethic and an appreciation for time management. They should never forget Suga telling them, “Time is money”.

Suga is extremely happy to report that the ladies’ artwork sold out at Craft Cart Jamaica’s Pop Up Village last Saturday at Campion Auditorium. The young ladies were grateful and felt a great deal of accomplishment for their weeks of hard work and efforts. The project was definitely a success reaping in a bit over $50,000JMD, of which the young ladies kept all the proceeds.

Thanks to the Rotaract Club of Kingston for choosing me to help spearhead this impactful project via GW Art, which falls under my brand Suga Lifestyle.

Many thanks to all who assisted with training the young ladies, helped in the marketing and promotions of this project and to those who stayed glued to our social media accounts, kept it buzzing with compliments and to all who supported the project with your purchases. You have contributed to the financial empowerment and independence of six young women with a promising future.

What’s next for them? They will continue their studies and a few plan to continue exploring the field of art.

Keep up with the New Kingston Rotaract Club by following them on Instagram @nkrcjamaica and if you are between the ages of 18-30 see how you can join them!
