Meanwhile, return the same sauté pan to the stove over medium heat.  In a small mixing bowl, crack your two eggs and add the 2 tbsp of milk . Season with a little and black pepper and using a small fork, beat eggs until frothy and fluffy, about 30 seconds. Add the egg mixture to the hot sauté pan. Reduce heat to medium and gently swirl the pan around to coat the circumference  of the pan with the egg mixture. Let cook for 1 minute then add the sauté bacon and mushrooms on the eggs followed by the cheese and chives. Gently fold over the egg into half as to encase the fillings.

Lightly press the omelet to close it. Cook for an additional 30 seconds and remove from the pan. Serve and enjoy with toast.

Before you place waffles into cook, fold egg whites in. Scoop portions of the mixture into the prepared waffle iron, and cook until golden brown.

Place a Sauté over medium heat, add the other 1 tsp of Vegetable Oil to the pan and crack three eggs in. Scramble eggs over medium heat by stirring with a whisk. After 30 seconds of cooking,  add the chopped spinach and season with salt and black pepper. Cook for one minute again and remove from pan.

To assemble waffle sandwich, place one side of a waffle on a plate, sprinkle the grated cheese on the waffle to allow it to melt, then gently spoon scrambled eggs on, followed by shingling the 4 slices of turkey on top. Place the other side of the waffle on top and press down slightly. Drizzle a bit of syrup on top and cut in halves and serve.

I poured drain cleaner in my eyes to blind myself

October 1, 2015

I wanted to share this story with you, I was unaware that such a disease existed – Body Integrity Identity Disorder (BIID)

For most people, going blind is their worst nightmare, but for this North Carolina woman it was a dream come true. Jewel Shuping, 30, was so desperate to be blind that she poured draining cleaner on her baby blues to wipe out her eyesight – and she couldn’t be happier. She suffers from an illness called Body Integrity Identity Disorder (BIID) – a disease that causes able-bodied people to strongly desire a disability. “I really feel this is the way I was supposed to be born, that I should have been blind from birth,” Shuping told Barcroft Media. The afflicted woman knew she wanted to be blind from a young age and would attempt to harm her eyesight by staring at the sun while ‘blind-simming,’ or pretending to be blind. By the time Shuping turned 21 the idea of being blind was “a non-stop alarm that was going off” and she sought the help of a sympathetic psychologist to help her carry out her ultimate desire in 2006. The psychologist gave her eye numbing drops before sprinkling a few droplets of draining cleaner onto each pupil. “It hurt, let me tell you. My eyes were screaming and I had some drain cleaner going down my cheek burning my skin,” she said. “But all I could think was ‘I am going blind, it is going to be okay.” Dr. Michael First, professor of clinical psychiatry at Columbia University says that people who suffer from BIID can’t control their need to be disabled. “These people are aware that this feeling of theirs is unusual – they know it is coming from within them. They can’t explain it,” he said. Shuping is now studying for a degree in education and is hoping to help other blind people live an independent life. She hopes that by sharing her story it will encourage other sufferers of BIID to seek professional help.

Meeting “The Boss” himself Machel Montano

September 22, 2015


A few weeks ago I had the esteemed pleasure of meeting a living icon; Machel Montano. It was always a dream of mine to be in his presence and share some words with this multitalented and grounded entertainer. His holistic demeanor is one that epitomizes strength, hard work, perfection, resilience as he strives to be an individual who would only whole-heartedly give his best when he performs and entertains his fans.I love that. He has proven to be a pioneer in marketing and innovation, how he reinvents himself and evolves his brand is remarkable and brilliant. It seems any composition he creates and renders becomes an infections and unbridled attraction towards his fans. With successful hits  such as  “like ah boss”, “pop ah bottle” as well as his vast musical repertoire  for 2015, his song with Angela Hunt entitled “Party Done”, just seemed to creep up and dominate the musical scene throughout the Soca world . We have seen his Band transition from the “Panasonic Express” to “Xtatic” and presently to “Machel Montano HD”.  With his outlook in life to dwell on self improvement and raising his standard of performance delivery and elevating Soca music to levels unsurpassed, Machel has adopted the philosophy towards what he has donned, “The Movement Of New Knowledge”.  Such a mantra embodies the thinking process and imaginative conditions that one can only bring forth in life after experiencing changes in our musical climate and working expeditiously to improve our culture and musical delivery. Ah’ mean; come on! The phrase “Party Done” just disseminated into a pop culture saying. That shows a significant amount of power and influence that one can bestow onto a social system itself..


It was after his performance I followed him outside of the back exit, hoping to finally get a chance to meet him. Singer Sean Paul was beside him and you know that meant a sea of people hurdling to get pictures, drops, handshakes and more. I patiently waited, and my opportunity came as he was walking towards his ride. I approached him, he stopped and while shaking his hands I told him “how proud I was of him”, he asked “where you from”, and I responded “Trinidad”. The Lord alone knows how ecstatic I was during our conversation. I’m glad that his manager Che asked if I wanted to take a picture with Machel. When we were done capturing this moment I hugged him. It was a time I will never forget and surely cherish. People such as Machel Montano exist to inspire others in whatever we may do daily and to kindle flames of hope, determination and to bring forth whatever art form or skill we may harness as he embodies hope, hard work, and persistence in world.
