Have you missed the ordering deadlines for Mother’s Day from Suga Endorsed establishments or Chefs such as Jabba’s Peppa Swims, Simo’s Bread and Catering, Chive Jamaica, The Haven at Hillcrest, Kuk Up Kreations, Sweet Obsession Ja or Chef Alex D-Great with CPJ Ltd.?

Fret not. There is still time to plan. Did you see Executive Chef, Mark Cole from The Jamaica Pegasus cooking up a storm yesterday on Smile Jamaica, TvJ? Well his dishes are usually a treat!

Thoughtful, Handcrafted Cards for Brighter Days Ahead


When someone special to you receives a card from Roseberry Paper Company, they are not only surprised at how appealing and unique the card is, but it instantly comes to their mind that this card is a keeper. A card they can have on display for quite some time, or put in a special place so they can look back at it from time to time.

These unique, handcrafted, handmade cards are by Nakeeta Nembhard, owner of Roseberry Paper Company.

Would you like to show someone your appreciation in a less extravagant way, which still matters and shows the person you value them?


Perfect! Perhaps even let someone know you are thinking of them with the hope of brighter days.


Also, just a little reminder amidst the current crisis that Mother’s Day is less than a month away and I am sure if we can’t treat Mom to a Spa Day or a special Dinner at a restaurant, the thought definitely counts and what better way than ordering a card from Roseberry Paper Company. If it’s too early, that’s ok. Save the contact and browse Roseberry Paper Company’s page anyway!

Check out Roseberry Paper Company today!

In these times, our small businesses are facing hard times, but are still empathetic and finding the safest ways to offer us deals and things we need. Follow Suga Lifestyle, as our local talented artisans, savvy local business owners and ongoing deals are continuously highlighted.

Fathers who Cook for Mother’s Day!


Yesterday was the 3rd staging of Fathers who Cook by Lodge Portmore at Ham Stables in Portmore from 12 noon to 4pm. The cost was $4000JMD for Adults.

The event was a Charity event in aid of Clifton Basic School, George Lee Foundatiom and other Masonic Charities including the Green Frog Gray Elephant Foundation. The Green Frog Gray Elephant Foundation raises Autism Awareness.

The ticket entitled you to 3 Meats, Staple (side orders) and a Drink. However food such as Burgers, Soup, Dessert and Snowcones came with your band as well. Drinks including Premium liquor were on sale.

Suga reached early before noon. I sipped on drinks and chatted with family and friends until food was ready at about 1pm. Service was quick and easy and there were hardly any lines. It is best to come to these types of events early. I was told that it was more organized this year so even for persons that arrived at about 2:30/3pm, shuttle service was provided by distant parking, entry to the venue was smooth and a second line was created for collecting staple, plates etc. All ladies, whether Mothers or not were given a rose upon entry and they did not run out. There was an endless supply of buckets with fresh roses. That was a nice touch.

Some advertised cooks were a no show this year but there was more than enough food for everyone and quite a variety. Highlights for Suga were the Roast Fish from Ellis and the Lion Fish from Huntley Watson. They were spicy, meaty and tasty!

Paul Robertson’s Lamb that is a hit every year sustained its high standard but was in high demand so finished quickly. So did the Pork Hock and Beans. Since I missed out on the Pork Hock when I was circling the tents again, I had Pork Belly, which was tender and had a delicious sauce.

Andre’s Shrimp Kebabs stayed a bit too long on the grill but had a nice flavour.

I was stuffed so missed out on Evon Lyn Cook’s Curried Goat, but next time.

The Dessert Station had assorted Cakes, Ice cream, Sorbet, Hershey’s Kisses and Ferrero Rocher. I am happy I caught the Cappuccino ice cream, whicj was delicious before that crazy rainbow one came out.

Ice cream with a View

Cal’s syrup definitely had  a presence with their Snowcones. What a blast from the past for Suga. I enjoyed my Strawberry Snowcone.

There were no horse or pony rides but a Magician and Singers provided good entertainment as well as music from Stokey Love.

Sponsors were Jamaica Broilers Group, Caribbean Broilers Ltd., Fidelity Motors Ltd., IGL Ltd., Smart Mobile Solutions, Genus Pharmacy, Rights Bakery, Wata, Coca-Cola, Tru-Juice and JAA.

Jamaica Automobile Association signed up persons for a Free 6-month Membership for 24/7 Emergency Roadside and Accident Assistance including All-island coverage and Security but not Towing services.

Well done Lodge Portmore. Would Suga attend again? Maybe not consecutively but will make a trip out there another year.
