Three things you like about yourself and why? I like my personality because I am fun to be around and confident. I like my adventurous nature because I am always willing to try something new and I am always determined to achieve it. I like that I am always humble, because I think that is important in becoming a better person. Your OMG moment I am a singer with Shurwayne Winchester’s band and I am also a teacher. My OMG moment happened when I entered this Miss Princess of the World Trinidad and Tobago Competition, won it and ended up in the Czech Republic and won the title of Talent Princess of The World in the very cold capital of Prague.

I’m a horrible
Even though my boyfriend has given me no reason to believe that he will ever cheat on me, I still check his phone, computer (Facebook) and other things to see what he’s up to. After a year of dating I just can’t believe that someone as perfect as him would be happy with someone as flawed and awkward as me.
No sex from wife, so… I’ve been having a long-term affair with a young woman who works for me. I know Reddit likes to crucify cheaters, but my wife cut me off sexually years ago with no regard for how hurt and rejected this has made me feel. And yes, I have tried everything to fix it. She refuses therapy. She sees nothing wrong with her having no libido and doesn’t understand why my hand doesn’t suffice. Hence I get my physical intimacy needs met elsewhere. And I refuse to divorce her because I want to see my children every day. With that out of the way...
and can’t drive I have driven before and started practicing when I was 21. I took little steps at first and one day I drove home from school with my then boyfriend in the passenger seat trying to teach me. I made it all the way to the corner of my home but turned the corner too fast. My boyfriend panicked and yelled and scared me so I ended up panicking and I hit a parked car. My son who was five at the time was in the car as well and he was scared and started crying after I hit the car. I now have a crippling fear of not only driving but learning how to drive. I’ve only been behind the wheel of a car a few times after that accident but I get so nervous and scared that I am going to hit something.
Hugger Lately, I’ve been hugging a pillow while I sleep so I don’t feel so alone at night. I’m a 23-year-old guy. I have had plenty of girls/ girlfriends. It’s not like it’s some sort of weird lack of intimacy in my life sort of thing. I guess I just feel lonely lately. It’s kind of comforting to do. Anyone else?
The Shameful truth I have spent the last few years over the Internet pretending to be someone I am not. I am genuinely ashamed of this and don’t know what to say. I know that if I come clean about it to the person then it would just hurt her… I guess the best that I can do is not ever do it again... I don’t know what else I can do…
33 years old
I love you more than I can even put into words. And because of that, I’m paranoid that you’re going to leave. Every single girl that talks to you makes me nervous. Even the ones that aren’t as pretty as me. I’m usually a strong, confident woman. And I have NEVER been like this before. What is happening to me
I cannot get it out of my head. A while back I had found out my long term boyfriend had been talking to another girl behind my back when the relationship was at a rocky point. I found out by being a snoopy type of girl and going through his Facebook messages after I had a really bad dream about him and this one girl he had become friends with over the summer. And when I looked at his messages I found them talking in a not-so-appropriate way. He would talk to her about things I didn’t even know about him. The number of women he had slept with and then it went into our own sex life which I wasn’t so happy about. The whole thing was basically sickening to read and when he talked about this “package” I went hell bent crazy.

How to cook a romantic dinner and get sexy results
Prepare a sensual meal chock-full of aphrodisiacs—and prepare for a night to remember. STEP 1 - Put out salami and cheese
Start with a platter of salami and cheese as nibbles. Both contain phenylethylamine, the euphoria-inducing chemical your body produces when you fall in love.
TIP - Brie cheese contains a fatty acid that makes women secrete a scent that triggers a powerful sexual response in both men and women. STEP 2 - Start with oysters
Serve oysters as the first course. They’re loaded with zinc, which may increase testosterone levels and promote vaginal lubrication.
STEP 3 - Serve fish
Prepare salmon, tuna, catfish, flounder, grouper, cod, or snapper as the entree. All are high in L-arginine, an amino acid that may boost sexual function. Sprinkle on some crushed pecans to add a dose of zinc.
STEP 4 - Serve sensual sides
Serve sensual side dishes that you can eat with your fingers, visually stimulating your partner. Try asparagus dressed with butter, almond-stuffed figs, or a whole artichoke. Go easy on the booze. Alcohol may put you in the mood, but too much will make the follow-through more difficult.
STEP 5 - Choose the right dessert
End the meal with pumpkin pie or doughnuts if your guest is male. If you’re entertaining a female, serve a dessert that smells like licorice, such as anise cake. Studies have indicated these aromas increase blood flow south in the respective sexes.
TIP - If you’re expecting your dinner date to spend the night, have cinnamon buns on hand for breakfast: A study found that some men found women more attractive when they smelled cinnamon in the air. STEP 6 - Pour tea
Serve ginseng tea with dessert instead of coffee. Some Asian cultures traditionally prescribe ginseng as a sexdrive enhancer.
STEP 7 - Offer some chocolate
Open a box of chocolates. Besides containing the love chemical PEA, chocolate has a small amount of cannabinoids, the same chemical compounds that give marijuana its relaxing properties. Is there a tastier way to put you both in the mood?
How to let your guard down After you’ve been in a destructive relationship, it can be hard to open up your heart and love again, but it is important to get over the pain and let your guard down. STEP 1 - Forgive
Forgive your ex for hurting you. Not only that, but forgive them compassionately by sending them loving thoughts. Hope that they learn to stop hurting the ones they love.
STEP 2 - Let go of your anger
TIP - Seek the help of a counselor who can help you deal with your feelings of distrust and aid you in modifying your behavior.
Anger can be unhealthy for your body and mind, and it can even cause addictions. Anger can emit an anti-charisma that others can sense, and it will make them want to avoid you.
Just because you are letting your guard down, it doesn’t mean you have to be taken advantage of. You can be a strong, independent person and still be in a relationship.
STEP 3 - Want to trust
STEP 5 - Find a better relationship
Develop the desire to trust the person in your new relationship. In order to let your guard down, you have to want to let your guard down. Don’t let past experiences distort your judgment.
STEP 4 - Know you don’t have to be taken advantage of
Be a part of a better relationship than your previous one. Be with a person who will care for you and stay committed to you -- do the same for them by letting your guard down.

How to de-stress
like a celebrity
How to stay awake at work
Sometimes monotonous work can bore you, and sometimes you just don’t get enough sleep. Learn to stay alert if you don’t want to get caught dozing at your desk. STEP 1- Use light
STEP 5 - Chew gum
Expose yourself to bright light, preferably natural daylight, to remind your mind and body that you should be awake.
Chew eucalyptus gum. A strong smell can wake you right up.
STEP 2 - Drink water
Massage your neck and the backs of your hands to improve circulation.
Stay hydrated. Dehydration causes fatigue. Caffeine can keep you awake, but large doses often come with a crash.
STEP 3 - Move
Get up from your desk every 30 minutes to walk, jump, or otherwise move around.
STEP 4 - Keep cool
Stay cool by walking in cold weather, turning on the air-conditioning, or splashing cold water on your face.
STEP 6 - Use acupressure STEP 7 - Listen to music
Listen to up-tempo music. Nothing soothing or relaxing but something that really gets you going.
Don’t let the day-to-day pressures and hassles of life get to you. Unwind celebrity style. STEP 1 - Get outdoors
STEP 6 - Soak in the tub
Escape to the great outdoors. Whenever she feels stressed, Sandra Bullock heads to her ranch in Texas and enjoys the sights and sounds of nature.
Take a long hot bath – with lots of bubbles – or soak in a hot tub. That’s what Kristin Chenoweth does to recharge.
STEP 2 - Hit the spa
STEP 7 - Enjoy family time
Spend the day at a spa, a tried-andtrue relaxation technique for stars from Martha Stewart to George Clooney.
STEP 3 - Exercise
Jessica Biel works out her stress and builds self-confidence by exercising regularly. Go for walks or hit the gym.
STEP 4 - Meditate and practice yoga
That’s what Madonna and Sting do. Try a simple meditation technique where you focus on your breathing. Sit in a comfortable position with your back straight, and close your eyes.
STEP 5 - Cook and eat comfort food
Try cooking, like Ghost Whisperer’s Jennifer Love Hewitt does. Or eating comfort foods – hers are cupcakes.
Spend time with your family – a favourite for Glenn Close, Kyra Sedgwick, and Angie Harmon.

AKA TUNJI MONTANA “Ola” is ready. He walked into his OMG photo shoot and he had the air of a star, not an arrogant and pompous attitude, but he was alert and mindful of his craft as an entertainer, especially the way he dressed and got into character. Right now, he is about Tunji Montana, a character influenced by the 1983 hit film Scarface and the lead character, Tony Montana, played by Al Pacino. Olatunji Yearwood is the son of two distinguished Trinidadians – Edwin Yearwood, who was instrumental in the formation of Trinbago Unified Calypsonians Organisation (TUCO) as well as playing a vital role in Pan Trinbago, and Mairoon Ali, actress and comedienne, who was also a History teacher at Holy Name Convent for about 34 years. Both his mother and father passed away not too long ago and they are very much at the top of his thoughts all the time. I knew Ola as a boy and knew how close he was to his parents, so it has been a deep loss for him. Ola, right now your song “Bam Bam” is heating up after the Carnival season. Tell us about that? Well, the riddim or the Soca Salsa Riddim, was produced by StarBlu and David Millbeatz, better known as “Milbeat” and it was brought to my attention by StarBlu. He sent me the Project5 Riddim and The Soca Salsa Riddum. I did not like the Project5 Riddim at first but look what happened with that. It spawned many hits for this Carnival season. Anyway, I was feeling the Soca Salsa Riddim and I told him I would work on the Salsa, even though they wanted me on the Project5. But I took the Salsa Riddum because I like the lavway vibes and the calypso feel of it. The good thing is that now that Carnival is done, “Bam Bam” is on the airways, everywhere. Who wrote the “Bam Bam” song? Olatunji wrote the song, I’m glad to say. I write most of my songs. I have been doing that since I was a youngster, thanks to my father for that belief and encouragement and telling me I have to start writing my own songs since I was at a junior level. I thank him and God bless his soul.
Olatunji - Having A Time
Well, all I hear in that song Ola, is “Badder that the Taliban”. Where the hell that line jump out from? (He laughs) Well that concept, to tell you the truth, it was a concept I picked up when I was in London. I was studying Performing Arts at West Thames College – I have a two-year diploma. In London, however, there is something called “Spitting Bars”. It’s something like rhyming or rapping and I was the hook man. I used to sing the chorus. But yuh have to have bad-man lyrics and gyal lyrics, certain kinda lyrics if yuh want to be rhyming on the streets. My concept was “badda than the Taliban” and it was used plenty in my lyrical warfare and I am back in Trinidad writing for Carnival and that turned into “Gyal Bam Bam, badda than the Taliban”. How have the years growing in this business been for you? It has been interesting, fun and a consistent learning experience as well. From since coming into the junior levels when I was about 15, entering the NJAC Emancipation Competition, placing second to Brian London. I lost by a point. The same year I entered the Junior Calypso Monarch and lost to Patrice Roberts by a point again. I had a song called “Mickey Mouse” written by Edward Dougens and the melody by my father. The next year I won the Junior Calypso Monarch with a song called “Donkey Power” and from there things took off. I placed third also in the Junior Soca Monarch and even hosted the Junior Soca Monarch. I placed third in Scouting For Talent – many learning experiences. Went to London, came back started with the Shurwayne Winchester band, then Roy Cape for four years. I learned a lot from them about music and life. Right now I am with the Soca Unit Band. Big up Vincent Rivers, known as the best and ultimate backing band in Trinidad and Tobago. Because they were the band for the Soca Monarch, WASA fete, Army fete, but now we are known as the Soca Unit because Olatunji is in the front line with Abbe and Kerlz. So you are going to have stuff coming from this camp now and this year we started and it was just wonderful. Who is Olatunji today? A lot of people think things happen overnight. I started when I was 15 and now I am 27. To be in this business you have to be willing to work hard and long for your recognition. There are always a lot of obstacles, a lot of preparation, hard work and a lot of getting up after being knocked down. The loss of my parents was a serious loss to me. One thing I learn from my mom and dad is that the show must always go on because they were both show people. My mom, Mairoon Ali, was on radio and stage my father, Edwin Yearwood, was a singer, MC, panman and calypsonian, and I was very close to both of them as you know Stephen. I was ridiculously close to them. My peers could not understand how close I was to them, like the kind of conversations we would have. It was like real close,

they were my best friends. So that loss was a serious loss, but luckily I realised I must be a strong person, do what I have to do and continue that legacy of being in the art form and loving what I do, entertaining people, making them laugh, singing, everything in one. I know my angels have been watching over me this entire season. Everything has been working so well for me. Writing the song for Blaxx – “Leh Go” – which placed third in Groovy Monarch and third in the Road March. I know my mummy and daddy looking at me and taking care of me so I just going and make them proud. What people may not know about you? I real love football. I like Barcelona from ever since, not because of the whole Messi thing now, I have always been backing Barcelona since the Rivaldo days. I like sports, I like basketball, cricket, I like a lot of sports. What people who know you say about you? They say Tunji is a clown, he like to make people laugh. They would say he is a good fella, nice to be around. Like plenty old talk. What is Olatunji’s OMG moment? Yuh know this happened just the other day at the Yorke fete in Tobago. To me it’s something real big, because Brian Charles Lara came to the airport and picked me up personally to take me to the Yorke fete. He did not send a driver, he came personally. I in Lara car and we rolling like we is best friends. He real cool with me, we making jokes and hanging. This man have me feeling like I is this big superstar. I am at the bar laughing and rubbing shoulders with Lara. That was a big, big, incredible OMG moment in my life. Ola and the great Lara hanging out like brethrens.

‘music+service+decore= vibe’ Story by Ian Royer
It takes a great deal of confidence to attempt an all-inclusive ultra premium fete with no performers and let me tell you that confidence was well placed with the Beach House Crew! Basically when you do an event like that you need the right formula of “music+service+decor=vibe” and it has to be balanced like a CXC Chemistry equation. The delivered; you arrived to a venue that was well thought out with a crisp and modern décor with on-point yet unobtrusive security ushering you in. Once you passed the gate the food court smells just drew you over and after your belly was filled the music took hold and you started exploring the bars! By mid-afternoon the crowd was moving to their favourite Carnival music and you were quite uninterested in anything else but having a great time! Our OMG Moment: the Moet Bar…wait, actually it was the gentleman who while “Wukking up a Larki” to Drupatee accidentally ripped open his pants! We encourage you to start planning now to head to Beach House 2014, it was amazing. Photography | Richard SooChin Carnival Scene

takes over T&T For starters, the Harlem Shake is a song released in 2012 by an American DJ Baauer. The Video Sensation is a completely random meme developed by some chaps out in Australia early in February of 2013. Essentially the video is 30 seconds long and typically features one random
dancing person in a costume or a helmet attempting the “Harlem Shake” in a setting where people are going about their business. 15 seconds into the song a bass beat drops and all hell breaks loose in the video! So far the Harlem Shake has infected the world of Youtube much like the Korean pop phenomenon Psy. The video ranges from very creative to “Whoa what kind of
drugs are you on?” and the craze seems to have swept Trinidad and Tobago as well! And our OMG Harlem Shake that seems to be ripping up the Internet with over 45k views - we think it’s the surprise ending. Shakes are popping up everywhere. We would like to know what your favourite OMG Harlem Shake video is - shoot it over on Facebook to us!

Kwasi Emmanuel 16, Tacarigua
Kwasi is a Form Four Queen’s Royal College student. He says he was turned on to becoming a hockey goalkeeper after going to see a game and seeing the national men’s team play. He started playing hockey and goalkeeping at the age of 12 when he entered Form One at QRC. He went also to meet with the senior national team’s coach and was successful in getting him to train him. He said from there his skills increased. Last year he was called up to train with the National Under-21 team and he says with hard work and determination and putting God first he was able to make the team as their number one goalkeeper. The team went to Mexico and participated in the Pan American Games. After that he has been training with the senior team, which left this week for the World Hockey League competition in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Kwasi did not make it to go to that tournament but is working hard to be selected for other important matches. This is also his fourth year playing with Malvern. In 2012 he was voted best goalkeeper in the Magnolia National Indoor Hockey Tournament. He also won the most disciplined award at the Malvern and was on the QRC team which won the last Under-21 and Under-15 titles in the secondary schools tournaments. Most of Kwasi’s time is occupied with training and school work. On mornings and afternoons he does extra training on his own so he can make the Under-21 team. His future plans (not mere dreams!) are to study law and go to England and follow in the footsteps of Kwan Browne, a Trinidadian who plays hockey there and is considered one of the best in the world. Kwasi says his motto is, in order to be successful in life, set your goals, push hard, work for it, do your extra training and you will be successful. Kwasi’s OMG moment is when he was called to play with the national senior team and performed well throughout the match. He says it was with the grace of God that he was able to pull off many seemingly impossible saves. It was one of Kwasi’s most memorable games.

Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani first look:
Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone
in a full-on masti mode! Have you seen Deepika Padukone and Saif Ali Khan star in Love Aaj Kal? For those who are oblivious to what actually happened, here’s what – in the movie, a couple breaks up and has more fun after the separation. Looks like Dippy’s personal life is somewhat tracing the journey portrayed in the first half of the movie. Ranbir Kapoor and DP seem to be having ample giggles in their life after their famous break-up. Hai na? Well, we don’t say it just for the heck of it. Just take a look at these two first-look posters of their upcoming
film Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and you’ll know what we mean, really. One poster is bathed in the colours of holi (how romantic!) as Ranbir takes the stance of his dafliwala father Rishi Kapoor. The other one is a tad classy and shows the two onscreen love birds having a blast at…ummm…a cocktail party, perhaps. All this coupled with the reports about the two having parties etc in Manali makes us believe that the two have really moved on and are in a happy space.
Gangnam star Psy to play Prabhu Deva’s
role in Any Body Can Dance remake!
It seems a South Korean production house has been mulling over the idea of getting Gangnam superstar Psy to essay Prabhu Deva’s character in ABCD‘s remake While some are raving about Prabhu Deva’s thespian skills in Any Body Can Dance (ABCD), there are also critics who have been hugely disappointed with the star’s performance in the film. But that doesn’t really matter much because a bunch of South Korean filmmakers are smitten with Prabhu’s charm. And not just that; they are supremely impressed with the way ABCD is made. So now that they are hell-bent on buying the rights to the film, while the honchos of UTV Motion Pictures are tak-
ing their own sweet time to consider this offer (lucrative or not, we don’t know that yet). But the question still remains – will Psy deliver a better performance than Prabhu in the remake? Well, we obviously have been in the loop when it comes to Psy’s grooving skills – he has that amazing energy and enthusiasm which can instigate even non-dancers to jump out of their seats and do a step or two. But come on, it’s tough to match Prabhu’s snake-like professional moves and his passion – which is so evident in the way he does everything – from those pelvic thrusts to those locking and popping steps. Let’s see if the deal gets finalised. If yes, Psy has some serious work to do – that is match up to Prabhu’s amazingly cool dancing steps!

On Michael Jordan’s Birthday, A Look At What He’s Been Up To Since Retirement While most of us only hope to be fortunate enough to retire once, on his 50th birthday, basketball legend Michael Jordan is already amid his third retirement. Jordan first retired from his extraordinarily successful career as a basketball player in 1993 to give baseball a try. He returned to the NBA in 1995, helping to lead the Chicago Bulls to champi-
onships in 1996, 1997, and 1998. Although he retired again in 1998, he returned to the league in 2001, playing for two more years before announcing his final retirement from basketball in 2003. Just like for many baby boomers, retirement does not mean that Jordan isn’t busy pursuing other passions. Since retiring, he has immersed himself in various business projects and philanthropies.

First bionic eye about to be approved by the FDA After years of research, prototypes, and clinical trials. The FDA is about to give its blessing to the first bionic eye to treat blindness. The Argus II Retinal Prosthesis System has already been approved in Europe, and is being implanted in patients right now. Researchers have performed the procedure on over 60 patients with varying, but positive results. The Argus II is designed to counteract the effects of retinitis pigmentosa, a genetic condition that causes the photoreceptors in the eye to stop functioning, leading to blindness. Retinitis pigmentosa affects about 100,000 people in the US, so this device is clearly not a silver bullet to cure all forms of blindness. However, this is the first time science has managed to
take people who were completely blind, and give them back some vision. The system consists of a small array of electrodes implanted in the retina, and a pair of glasses with a small camera. The camera feeds images into the electrodes, which replace the function of the degraded photoreceptor cells. Outcomes have been mixed, but all patients saw some benefit. Some went from seeing nothing to being able to make out shadows, but others ended up with sharp enough vision to read newspaper headlines. A few even regained some color vision, though most could only see black and white. The Argus II is currently selling in Europe for €73,000, or just shy of $100,000. That’s quite a lot, but it might be even more expensive stateside when it is approved. Spendy, but it’s a big step forward for medical science.
Kia And DC Entertainment’s Superman Themed Optima Remember when Kia and DC Entertainment got together to customize a car for each member of the Justice League? Well here’s the Optima Hybrid Superman one. It, uh, it’s really something. I’m just having a hard time believing Superman would drive a Kia. “Of course he would.” Yeah but you’re just saying that because YOU drive a Kia. With all the resources Superman has at his disposal I can’t help but feel he’d drive something a little more, how should I put this -- 2001 Ford Explorer. “Isn’t that what you drive?” We’re both super in our own ways! No but seriously Superman would never drive anyways because why drive WHEN YOU CAN FLY? Back me up, Aquaman. “Very funny, GW.” Haha, is it true you and King Neptune had a fling?
“I don’t see how you can hate from outside of the club You can’t even get in,” in Chris Brown voice.
However, Drake was not permitted to enter the club because bouncers wanted to avoid any possible brawl between the two parties. According to sources, Brown was inside the club celebrating an anniversary party for some clothing brand called Popular Demand. The bouncers were aware Chris was inside when Drake showed up around midnight … and they knew Rihanna would be joining him later on … so they asked Drake to party somewhere else that night. Drake reportedly left the club with his boys after the rejection. Rihanna was also parting at Playhouse on the same night.
