Cornmeal porridge-regular breakfast item in Jamaica though the meal can be had at any time of the day. It’s also used as “soft-food” for babies. It’s made with cornmeal, spices (nutmeg, cinnamon), coconut milk or milk of choice, sugar, a bit of salt, vanilla and almond essence to taste.

Hi fellow hivers and ReggaeJahmmers. How are you?
This week is Golden Week in Japan. It’s a week of three (3) consecutive holidays which extend or can be extended to the weekends that fall before and or after the three days. At this time of year, many people usually go traveling or at least plan something exciting or relaxing.

My family had two (2) main plans. We had planned to go to a Reggae, Folk and Gospel concert in Osaka. This event was held in celebration of Jamaica’s 60th year of Independence. We know quite a few of the singers. We were very excited about that as we hadn’t been to a concert in a long time. This too was a Jamaican event. We were ready to do some skanking and expose our kids to a good Jamaican vibe.
We had also planned to visit @missaj who was also one of the performers at the concert. We were planning to have some good chats, food and playtime for our kids. Well, all those plans fell through as my family was hit with a sick bug. The bug seemed to have done a baton pass or relay, moving from member to member. This isn’t how we intended on spending the holidays but we’re grateful we have this time to re-fuel, “relax” and recover. We are on the mend. We’ve fought through sore throats, headaches and fevers.

Re-hydration fluid and fruits.
This week, I’m dashing out some of what we’ve been eating and or taking for recovery. We’ve been taking lots of fluids and soft foods but almost everyone is now back to regular foods. The bug hit me last. I’m feeling much better than yesterday but will see what my appetite is up for today.
We’ve been having cornmeal porridge, soup, yogurt, fruits, tea, lemonade, rehydration fluid, throat candies and we’ve been using vicks.

Throat candies-a mix of mint,ginger and orange.

We’re giving thanks. Things could have been worse. While our week isn’t exactly golden, we’re happy to get a silver or bronze medal or happy to just be in the race.

That porridge looks flavorful. Do share the recipe sometime 😁.

Oh how unfortunate you all were hit with the sick bug. I can imagine looking forward to that concert, as we've also had to do without any live performances the last couple of years.

Hope you all are well and hope that there will be another event coming up soon, that you all can enjoy.

😃Hope to share the recipe some time. You understand how much we didn’t want to miss it. It would have been a nice, cool vibe.
Thanks, we’re on the mend. We hope there’ll be another event soon as well. And let me just say, if you and @rarej are planning a live event, please give us ample notice, we wouldn’t want to miss your performances. 😜

Hahahaha, there's a common joke here, that it'll rain if someone sings out of key/tune and if we (mostly I 😂) sing it'll pour down right away 🤣🤣🤣.

🤣🤣Let me be the witness of that. So far we have very clear skies here. Let it rain or shine. 🤣🤣

I don't know what kind of rain shenanigans @tanjakolader is talking about. I'm definitely the best karaoke singer around. 😂 !LOL !LUV

Oooohhh we shoukd definitely do karaoke whenever we're in the same location as @fruityfruitz... 😁

@rarej is definitely the better singer, but I have the "strongest" (read: loudest) voice 🤣🤣🤣.

That would be fun! My role would be to check to make sure the sound system and the big singers like you,@rarej and @bearmol are okay. 🤣😂
“Anyone needs a drink?” I’ll get it for you.

We need strong , loud voices at karaoke. I knew you were good! 😃😂

That would really be a fun date!

My girlfriend broke up with me because I quote Linkin Park too much.
But in the end, it doesn’t even matter.

Why was the river rich?
Because it had two banks.
