Suga Lifestyle and fellow Alumnae Donate to the I.C.H.S F/N Lab Reconstruction!

20180910_130953
Gabrielle Burgess a.k.a Suga of Suga Lifestyle handed over a $100,000JMD Donation to President Keisha-Ann Down and other members of the I.C.H.S Alumnae on behalf of herself and fellow alumnae towards the reconstruction of the Food and Nutrition Lab (Date: Sunday, September 9, 2018)
Gabby a.k.a Suga’s alma mater, Immaculate Conception High School, began reconstruction of its Food and Nutrition Lab on Monday, July 2, 2018 and fundraising has been ongoing. However, they are were short by about $750,000JMD at the beginning of the summer.
When I heard about this, as past Deputy Head Girl (2002-2003), founder and owner of the website,
http://www.suglifestyle.com, I had to help. I thought instead of giving a donation personally, I could make more of an impact by approaching fellow alumnae. It’s a good thing I did, because so many did not know about the reconstruction of the F/N Lab.
Suga Lifestyle is a brand encompassed on the blog, sugalifestyle.com, and is intended to inspire, educate and entertain via various types of posts categorized by; GW Art, Restaurant Reviews and Ratings, Brand Jamaica, Charities, Health and Fitness, Sports and more.
Since I do Restaurant reviews for my website, it would not only be towards supporting our alma mater, but the future of our Culinary Industry.
Many top Caterers and Bakers currently in the Culinary industry are I.C.H.S Alumnae. To name a few of them and their businesses, Observer Table Talk Food Awards Caterer of the Year, Celeste Gordon of Whip It Up, Pastry Passions, Charissa Henry of Pink Apron Ja, Kuk Up Kreations, Suga Buzz, Levy’s Goodies, Cake Couture Ja and I.C.H.S’s Hall of Famer, Thalia Lyn of Island Grill! Whether or not the idea of fulfilling their dream began at Immaculate, High School is where it all began for many and after all, serves as our very strong foundation.
I attended the I.C.H.S Alumnae’s Monthly Planning session last Sunday to handover the cheque from Suga Lifestyle on behalf of myself and fellow ‘Mac Girl Sisters’, and to become more involved as well. I am extremely happy we were able to help to support our bright future and our alma mater.
The F/N Lab looks fantastic for the opening of the new school year with a few finishing touches to be made. For instance the addition of blenders and other items.
Take a look!

Novak is back!

The favourite won the US Open for the Men!

Novak Djokovic won the US Open Men’s Final yesterday, beating Juan del Potro in fine style and straight sets, 6-3, 7-6 (7-4), 6-3 to equal American great, Pete Sampras’ haul of 14 major titles.

Djokovic was in top form and so was del Potro. But even though del Potro played well, he was not on the same level as Djokovic.

Djoko’s rivals, Roger Federer with 20 and Rafael Nadal with 17, are the only ones still ahead and dominating Men’s tennis along with him. Djokovic won Wimbledon this year as well, making it his first back-to-back Grand Slam titles since June 2016. While Nadal won the French and Federer won the Australian Open this year.

Djokovic, will now climb to 4th in the world after his great comeback from an elbow injury and back-to-back Grand Slam victories.

Congrats Novak!

There are many easy ways to sneak ‘good carbs’ and extra fiber into your daily diet. Here is one of them:

US Open Update and Play of the Tournament so far!

Women

20180903_005740.jpg
Venus Williams (L) and her sister, Serena Williams (R) embrace after their 3rd round match last Friday night at the Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Serena Williams played her best tennis since her return from having a baby, routing her sister, Venus Williams 6-1, 6-2. Probably because she knows her best?

Serena moved on to send home Kaia Kanepi who eliminated the world no. 1, Simona Halep in the 1st round. Everyone thought the match would be over quickly after Serena destroyed her 6-0 in the first set in 18 minutes, but she recovered and came back to take the 2nd set 6-4. Serena took on the challenge to win the 3rd set and match, 6-3.

Serena plays Karolina Pliskova next, tomorrow at 9am ET.

Dominika Cibulkova upset Angelique Kerber, 3-6, 6-3, 6-3.

Maria Sharapova eliminated young, Jelena Ostapenko in straight sets.

Madison Keys is through to the Round of 16.

Sloane Stephens, the last of the top seeds left in the tournament and Defending Champ, defeated Elise Mertens last night in straight sets and looks like she is in winning shape.

Young Naomi Osaka, is also still in it to win it.

Men

Things are coming down to a crunch with the Men as well. Will there be a Djokovic-Federer Semifinal?

Novak Djokovic eliminated Richard Gasquet easily in straight sets.

Dominic Thiem who eliminated Stan Wawrinka early, also eliminated marathon-setter, Kyle Anderson in straight sets, which is never easy to do.

American, John Isner eliminated the Canadian, Milos Raonic in an epic 5-setter.

Juan del Potro sailed through his match to reach the Quarterfinals. He plays John Isner tomorrow!

Roger Federer schooled the young Aussie, Nick Kyrgios in straight sets to advance to the round of 16.

Watch “US Open Hot Shot: Roger Federer Goes AROUND The Net” on YouTube here and the shot is legal! 

Young, Kei Nishikori is still in it to win it, as well as 2014 US Open Champ, Marin Cilic.

World no. 1, Rafael Nadal was forced to rise to the occasion to eliminate hard-hitter, Nikoloz Basilashvili in 4 sets. That was quite a quality match! He plays Dominic Thiem tomorrow!

Stay tuned!
