Stories about St. Vincent & the Grenadines from July, 2007
Attending her godmother's birthday celebration makes Abeni realise that the older generation lived lives of service: “Is it that their generation were imbued with a community and national spirit while we are more individualistic?”
Abeni congratulates Grenada's Kirani James on his recent achievement of winning his country's first medal at the World Youth Games in the Czech Republic.
Abeni finds out that there is “yet another snag” in regional carrier LIAT's proposed buyout of Caribbean Star – and is not ashamed to admit she's happy about it.
“You might think that the position is so blighted that no one wants it, or you may think it just odd that only one name apiece was tossed into the circle for the posts of president and vice-president of the West Indies Cricket Board.” Vaneisa Baksh at CaribbeanCricket.com weighs in...
Abeni confesses to being a “party animal” and posts some photos taken at St. Vincent's J'ouvert celebrations.
After a performer uses obscenities on stage, Abeni is “wondering why an island with 19 homicides thus far in 2007 is getting bent out of shape because of an expletive or two.”
Abeni is hoping to get into the spirit of “Vincy Mas” – the island's annual Carnival celebrations.
