Trinidad felt the effects of an earthquake today at around 3:00pm.
7.5 yuh know...they say it was the strongest in the region since God was a boy.
So of course now everybody saying it's the end of days...
I felt it while sitting in some traffic on Tragarete Road and was wondering who the heck was shaking my car.
So far, from making some calls to my friends, it seems the earthquake was felt as far west as St. James and as far east as Arima.
Read some more about the earthquake here, and tell me where you were when you felt it.

Unlike previous years, the launch was held at the mas camp and I received a call from the band leader herself, Vanessa Forde to attend.
This year the band has a total of six sections, and is portraying "Stamps of Paradise: a Caribbean Collection" which shows various items that can be found in the Caribbean, from Birds of Paradise to the Rain Forest.
While there were no costumes modelled by young masqueraders, there were costume pictures on display. Costumes are designed by Randal Halfhide and prices range from $595 to $950.

As Vanessa explained while most of the drawings were female, yet indicate that it was a unisex section, the boys will be playing in a sailor type pants as seen in the prototype below for Rain Forest.
The costumes will be outfitted with lightweight backpacks for the children to carry. I particularly like the section Faces of The Future and the Underworld.
The kids were treated to the customary soft drinks and party bags which they enjoyed.
