Food Truck Bazaar

Hey Guys!! 

A food truck bazaar was being held in my community today, and I was extremely excited to attend. First of all, this would have been the very first community event that I would have attended since my move here in Orlando, and of course, I was going to get some jerk chicken. Bear in mind, it has proven difficult to find what I consider to be authentic jerk. So I got jerk chicken with sweet guava bbq sauce and Jason had jerk pork with the same sauce, a serving of callaloo, and rice & peas. Despite my disappointment, that there was more sauce then jerk, the event in itself was pretty good. It was evident that a lot of thought went into the overall planning, and it was very organized. Hats off to the coordinators of the event!

F8 Developers Conference 2011

So the intro to the keynote speech given at the F8 Developers Conference, started out with SNL Andy Samberg imitating Mark Zuckerburg. It was absolutely horrible, I never found it funny in the least bit, and was just a big waste of time in my opinion. I believe the aim was to have us all be fascinated by this new timeline feature that they’re about to implement, but I am not. I’m more on the fence, and my constant question is, “what the hell is Facebook coming to?” If I were to be asked the question on whether or not I believe there was ever a moment in life where we could all overshare, my ultimate response would be, “that moment is now”. From what I gather, Facebook, going forward, will have the ability to record your whole life in chronological order through use of one’s pictures and God only knows what else. It is fast becoming a really scary nightmare where people who claim they are your friends know way too much about you. I highlight this fact with the perfect example below. 

Caitriona: “Hey T, I’ve come to realize that you really like that new Katy Perry song” 

TianShanae: *raised eyebrows* “And just how do you know this?” *bbm confused smiley* 

Caitriona: “Oh I saw it on Facebook” 

TianShanae: “hhmmmm” 

Anytime you listen to a song, watch a TV show/movie, cook, jog, hike, or even walk the dog, just the trivial aspects of your life that most people don’t give two rats ass about, it will be updated via Facebook. This will all be made possible through frictionless update Apps. So when you play games or sign up for services such as Netflix or Spotify, it will ask upon initial use, “Do you want to SHARE?” Should you select yes as an option, that’s it! All services you’ve subscribed for, will automatically update your Facebook user page. In this instance, you no longer have to worry about updating it on your own. As it is now, I may choose to update my twitter and Facebook account to share with my “friends” what I’m doing currently but it’s not automatic. 

Next on the list of changes is Real-time Serendipity. This is where I can listen to a song my friend is listening at the same time. OMG, a stalkers heaven, yaay!!! To be quite frank, I don’t mind sharing stuff, but I am most definitely not a fan of all this auto sharing. Now you’re telling me that everyone knows what I’m listening to, and when, what I’m watching, where I ran, just how fast I ran, and my movie selections/preferences on Netflix. Are you serious? Soon enough, it will start picking up the GPS system on my vehicle, and providing updates on my location and how long it took for me to get there. Better yet, an entire tracking system on my person telling the whole world what I’m doing from what I’m not doing. This is ridiculous! I’m sorry FB, but I’d rather provide all these wonderful details of my life, to my audience, all on my own. 

All in all, Facebook is going to become an even more powerful website than it was before and like Kanye West said, “No one man should have all that power”. As I’ve mentioned in previous discussions with my friends, once an alternate social medium becomes available that seems worthwhile, I’ll surely be deleting my account, and jumping ship. On second thought, one may already have. Are you guys aware that Google + have now opened their platform for all users? You are now able to subscribe and make use of the service without being offered an invite! Do I sense a competition here? Guess I’ll just have to wait and see, but don’t take my word for it, think about it and have me know your views. Please don't forget to comment and/or click that like button.

Little Floral Dress

Hey Guys!!

This week has been a really busy one for me thus far, and I feel so bad that I'm running behind on my blog posts. As such, I've decided to take the time out to drop in and give you guys an update. So I went on the road yesterday, and I can't even begin to describe the mood I was in. I just don't know where it all came from. With me being in such a chipper mood, I just felt like being all cute and girly. In fact, I may have went overboard and gotten all dolled up. But hey ... I loved it!!

Below are images of what I threw on. What do you guys think?

Labour Day

For those of you who didn’t know, last Monday (05/09) was Labour Day here in the US. To celebrate, Jason and I decided to host a barbeque just for fun. PJ and Amelia invited their friends Rob and Becky, who came with their new-born daughter Gia (she is the cutest thing ever). We had prepared a ton of food and by the end of the night, I was stuffed. On the menu, we had both regular and jalapeño frozen burger patties, Italian sausages, and a six layer dip made by Amelia, which we had with Tostitos Chips. The drink menu comprised of Smirnoff Ice (flavours include: mango, pineapple and cherry lime), Red Stripe Beer, Heineken and assorted fruit juices. We ate, talked, laughed, watched Sucker Punch and played Phase 10 Card Game. Overall it was a great day. It turned out to be a very entertaining one to say the least.

I’ll now share with you, the recipe for Amelia’s infamous dip. Please see below the order in which the ingredients were layered: 

  • Refried Beans
  • Taco Seasoning 
  • Cream Cheese
  • Green Chiles 
  • Salsa 
  • Kraft Mexican Three Cheeses 

Fill me in guys, I’m eager to know! What did your Labour Day entail? Please don’t forget to comment and/or click that like button. Until next time guys thx for reading!
