Suga’s thoughts on The Dress –

Disappointing – since no-one will say it and fashionistas on e! went speechless, but maybe not in a good way. I would have loved to see some lace, maybe even some pearls and intricate beading. However, the dress fitted Meghan’s personality. It was simple, but elegant with a gorgeous neckline and a stunning 16 foot veil.

Let’s not forget the accessory that stood out, her tiara! She got to handpick Queen Mary’s Diamond bandeau tiara from the Royal collection.

Prince Harry, Here comes your Girl!

Tearful Fact:

Harry handpicked Lady Diana’s Forget-Me-Not flowers for Meghan’s bouquet as a tribute to his Mother

20180519_102131

Quite a romantic union reflecting the mixed cultures well, many fairytale moments and we witnessed the love Harry and Meghan obviously share.

Congratulations to Prince Harry and Meghan, the Newlyweds and now the Duke and Duchess of Sussex!

They are currently attending the Reception. Now let’s eat some Wedding cake! It sure is ready!

Parents of the Groom: Prince Charles Philip Arthur George, Prince of Wales and Lady Diana Frances Spencer

*Best Man: Prince William Arthur Philip Louis, Duke of Cambridge

Maid of Honour: None
***Meghan did not want to choose any of her close friends over the other. She will just have 10 child Bridesmaids and Pageboys including Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

How they Met
A blind date set up by a mutual friend!

Breaking Traditions
*Royal Weddings usually take place during the week
*Royal Weddings do not normally involve a Best Man. Prince William broke tradition and so is Prince Harry
*Bridal party members are supposed to be single
*The Bride usually travels with her Father before he gives her away. Meghan chose her Mother.

Who will the Bride be wearing?!
A £100,000 (~$135000 USD) beaded creation by London-based Australian designers Ralph & Russo.

Pre-Wedding Drama
Meghan’s Father got involved in paparazzi drama recently with pictures he allegedly staged of himself looking at images of Prince Harry and Meghan as well as images of London. However, this has nothing to do with the announcement recently made. Just days before the wedding, Thomas Sr. got sick. Meghan has confirmed that sadly, he will not attend the Wedding. Thomas Sr. is recovering in Mexico from heart surgery and Meghan stated that she hopes he will have space to focus on his health.

Who will Walk Meghan down the Aisle?
According to Kensington Palace, it was important to the Bride that both her parents have roles in the wedding. Meghan’s mother, Doria will travel with her in the car to Windsor castle.
Doria will depart the Bride’s car at St. George’s Chapel and the Bridesmaids and Pageboys will climb in. Bride, Meghan Markle will then be driven to the West door where her father, Thomas Sr. was supposed to await her to walk her down the aisle. Prince Harry’s Father, Prince Charles will take Thomas Sr.’s place on Meghan’s Big day and walk her down the aisle but will not give her away.

Suga crowns new Restaurant for Best Lamb Chops in Jamaica!

20180509_093732.jpg
Randy Burgess and wife, Gabrielle a.k.a Suga from Suga Lifestyle by the Waterwheel at the front of the Sugar Mill Restaurant last Friday, May 4. The Waterwheel is the only surviving structure of the Running Gut Estate that was established in 1676.

Comments: The Sugar Mill Restaurant lived up to its reputation for a high standard of service and food quality surrounded by the perfect ambience in an authentic, rustic garden setting. Seating at this fine-dining restaurant was spacious and sufficient, giving diners multiple options, including by the actual Waterwheel.

20180509_094616.jpg

The menu is diverse, offering international cuisine with a Jamaican flair. Dishes arrived in a timely manner. The meats were cooked to perfection, well seasoned and complemented by other items for added, unique flavours. Well mixed drinks from the bar accompanied our dinner. Sugar Mill Restaurant is the perfect place to impress a date or to enjoy with family. #SugaEndorsed

Sugar Mill Restaurant has quite an assortment of breads with dips to tease the appetite, such as Cho cho with saltfish, a Blue Cheese dip and an Escoveitch dip. If you’re not careful, you will be left with very little space for your main or dessert.

My husband and I received a taste of Tuna with spicy aioli to start us off, compliments of the Chef.

Have a look at our other divine dishes!

20180509_085832
Smoked Marlin ($19USD) – Filled with Crab meat and Shrimp, radish, roasted beets and pickled white onions
20180509_094044
Crayfish Bisque ($15USD) with Breadfruit and Papaya seed crackers
20180509_085815
Rack of Lamb – 14oz/400g ($52USD) with Tangelo Fruit Chutney and a side of Yam Risotto ($8.50USD)

How did their Lamb Chops surpass that of Terra Nova’s for Suga?

The satisfying serving size was similar, but slightly larger than Terra Nova’s Lamb chops. Both are well seasoned, tender cuts that are cooked how I like it, medium rare, but Sugar Mill gets the edge with its flavour and the crust that developed on top as it was cooked for the right amount of time, which made it perfection.

Terra Nova’s signature Mint and Pomegranate Au Jus that accompanies the Lamb Chops is savoury, but I didn’t mind the change with Sugar Mill’s tasty and juicy Tangelo Fruit Chutney. Sugar Mill gets the marginal win!

20180509_085749
Veal Chop – 14oz/400g ($65USD) with jerk-herb butter and a side of sautéed Callaloo with garlic ($8.50USD)

My husband enjoyed this change in comparison to his usual cut of Beef Tenderloin. It was well seasoned and cooked to medium rare perfection. Since the veal is younger, it was a lighter, more tender meat that he appreciated.

We were too full for Dessert, so either the Chef felt like being generous to us or he knew Suga was in the house! We were given Sweet treats compliments of the Chef. Delish!

20180509_093810.jpg

Dinner for two at the established, fine-dining Sugar Mill Restaurant can run a couple a bit over $200USD, but it is usually totally worth it. Prices quoted attracted an additional 10% G.C.T and 15% Service charge, however locals get 20% off the bill.

Kudos to the Chef and staff for an exquisite dinner and to our courteous waiter, Dexter Lloyd who provided exceptional service.
