HiAce — Gone

Posted in General on Wednesday, August 1, 2007 by Yatta

After living at this house for over 14 years.. we had our first major break-in. The same Sunday I went on vacation  that night the shadow ‘owners’ of my father’s Toyota Hiace retrieved thier so-called property.  I guess it was just a matter of time. Alot of people in this area have been robbed…. but we were one of the lucky few the bandits just skipped over. Maybe they thought we felt left out… like we never felt like we were a part of the group….. mi rass!!! We were one of the very first few people to move into this area.. i think there may have been like 4 other families, it wasn;t much though. Now I don’t even know 1/4 of the people up here. Moving on.

Whoever took the van knew exactly what they were coming for…. they cut all the wire to the gate opener and also took out some studs for the said opener. When my sister called my 5:30am Monday morning I had a few choiced words for her (5:30 and I”m not home!!!) she was lucky though… the first thing she said was .. “dem tief da van” Obviously that got my attention. Long story real short.. seems like they cam efor the van in the early morning….

I think I may be really lucky I wasn’t home that  morning though, if I was I probably would have came outside to see what all the commotion was about; especially with Midnight barking like a mad mad.  I’ll just count that as a blessing. I just hope my father hurry up an fix the gate…. I’m tired of pushing and pulling that damn gate every morning and evening 😦

A Proper Vacation… I think?!?!

Posted in General, Personal on Wednesday, August 1, 2007 by Yatta

After working approximately 1 year @ Flow, I decided to take a vacation. I’m not really a vacation type of guy, I’m not into sight seeing, shopping, etc.. most of the stuff that are associated with vacations. Just give me some food and a place to chill and I’m fine.

I ended up going to Club Ambiance in Runaway Bay, yep my girlfriend an I stayed 3 nights and 4 days there. It wasn’t too bad actually, nice quite an relaxing place to stay. I ate an drank to my hearts content.. granted the food part was so-so they catered to the Americans (foreigners) ALOT in respect to the Jamaicans. I ate bacon till mi FOOL!!!!! yea yea yea…. we all know bout the joys of fried bacon.. but dammit man… it was just calling out to me. Wednesday morning was a breakfast for me though.. ackee & saltfish with fried dumplin… the dumplin dem did nice a soft. pssss… the ‘ol dawg in me had a plastic container that was filled with ackee by the time i finished eating breakfast. Don’t worry I was leaving the same day so the ackee neva spoil ( I had a cooler in the car). The alcohol wasn’t too bad… Bob MarleyBob Marley Drink and Flaming Bob MarleyFlaming Bob Marley nice drinks!!! You nouticed the name Flaming Bob Marley!!! granted you can’t see it from this pic (or any other pic that was taken of this drink…. the drink was on FIRE!!!!)

P.S. I’ve been writing this damn ting for about 3 days on/off.. I’ll post now and just update some pics later on.
