Bankay’s Alana Williams-created
birthday cake was a nod to his
preferred drink — a bottle of
Singleton Trinity Single Malt

Debonair charmer. Business mogul. Party-hearty promoter. Man about town. Many labels can be ascribed to Kamal Bankay, but last Thursday, the one most fitting was 'birthday celebrant' as the Dream Entertainment director-cum-DJ celebrated his 35th year of life with a rollicking do at Ribbiz Lounge, where he is one-third of a business partnership with Brian 'Ribbi' Chung and Don Creary. SO gives you party access. (PHOTOS: LIONEL ROOKWOOD) Read More

My Kingston - Jeremy Whittaker

Jeremy Whittaker

Congratulations on the release of your debut feature film Destiny. When did the idea for the movie originate? I knew I always wanted to make movies. I spent a long time investing in attaining the abilities and skills to make a movie. From 2006 I decided I wanted to make a Jamaican movie. The actual idea of Destiny was born in 2011. Was film-making always a professional end game for you? Yes. That is exactly where I saw myself. I think it's my gift to tell stories and to see things others don' ... Read More

Sher Bridgeman

A broken ankle is not about to put the kibosh on Sher Bridgeman sliding on a pair of fab golden stilettos. Meeting us for Friday afternoon cocktails at the lounge at the Spanish Court Hotel, the assistant vice-president of business development at Guardian General Insurance Jamaica Limited doffs the sandals in favour of heels for her close-up moment with our lens. Style clearly matters. So, too, does maintaining solid customer-service ties with the brokers she serves. Bridgeman is fresh from me ... Read More

Australians cheer Flanagan's Booker Prize win

Sunday, October 19, 2014    

LONDON (AP) — Australian literature-lovers cheered last Wednesday after Richard Flanagan won the prestigious Booker Prize with a visceral story of wartime brutality and its aftermath - a novel the head of the judging team said was as powerful as a kick in the stomach. The country's government may be less pleased. Flanagan in a post-awards interview that Prime Minister Tony Abbott's environmental policies made him "ashamed to be Australian". Flanagan drew on his father's experiences as a ... Read More

Love doesn't ask why It speaks from the heart And never explains Don't you know that Love doesn't think twice It can come all at once Or whisper from a distance - Love Doesn't Ask Why by Céline Dion. Tiffani Samms and Daniel Sharpe grew up knowing each other as mere acquaintances, oblivious to the future they would share one day as husband and wife. Like any great love story, everything happened spontaneously and unfolded in due time, and now the lovebirds can happily declare they ... Read More

Look out for these Badia
products and more on
your next grocery trip.

The less-than-auspicious start of Badia Spices in a non-descript store in Miami, by Cuban immigrants who mixed their herbs and spices by hand, has made way 30 years later to Badia Spices, an internationally acclaimed brand whose products are used by professional chefs and cooks worldwide. The announcement Monday evening at the acclaimed 689 (restaurant) by Brian Lumley that the brand has made its way back to the Caribbean to be exclusively distributed in Jamaica by World Brands Services Ltd, a ...

The House Wins

As good as ice cream gets at Kingston landmark Devon House, the historic property is far more than home to dairy-divine licks. Think beyond scoops of Bordeaux cherry, butter almond, Devon Stout or strawberry swirl, and the trip to the Waterloo Road address affords one a six-fold culinary exercise worth taking. There's the wine bar with fab side-order accompaniments at Bin 26, treats of chocolate decadence from Chocolate Dreams, Mediterranean fare at Kebab Café, pastry delights at Devon H ... Read More
