Morning Troops!


Here's what's going on in Bermuda over the next couple of weeks:


  • Nothing to Chew in Bermuda: Asian Feast is on THIS Sunday and last time I checked, there was only 1 spot left for the 6.30pm sitting and 2 left for the 7.30pm sitting, so if you're bringing a larger group, come along at 8.30pm (while tickets last).  Just to clarify, you do NOT have to leave before the next sitting arrives – the times are staggered just to make things a little easier on the kitchen!  Quite frankly, if you manage to polish off all this food within an hour, I will be very impressed! Anyway, today is the LAST day tickets will be on sale – get them from before it's too late!


  • Get your Legs 11 over to Vasco da Gama Club, Reid Street on Saturday, November 19th for a Charity Bingo Night from 8.30pm.  A cash bar will be available and prizes include a $500 jackpot prize, gift certificates and more.  Proceeds go to the Women's Resource Centre – here's the flyer!


  • Mixing a little learning to the most important meal of the day, the Business & Professional Women’s Association of Bermuda presents The Organised Business Person on Saturday, November 19th.  This event starts at 8.30am in Harley's Restaurant at the Fairmont Hamilton Princess and the speaker is professional trainer Ghislaine Lemay.  The cost is $35, which includes a breakfast buffet.  Space is limited so you are asked to RSVP to or 333-5496 by noon on Thursday, November 17th - here's the flyer!

  • Looking for a little more clarity in your life as we move into 2012?   Karen Simons PhD., MhD from Sankofa: The Wellness Center on Chancery Lane is offering a Chakra Workshop on Sunday, November 27th from 9.30am until 5pm.  The fee is $250, which includes a light lunch/snacks, and is due by Friday, November 23rd but there is an early bird special of $200 for NTDIB readers who sign up before Saturday, November 19th!

There will be mulled wine, Christmas carols, performances from The Crazy Wednesdays and African dance troupe Bermuda Donquili, happy hour drinks prices, Nepalese and African food, raffle prizes, and you can shop for Christmas gifts at Nepalese and Ugandan arts, crafts and jewellery market stalls, or at the live auction hosted by Bruce Barritt. 100% of every single dollar spent at the event will go directly and undiluted to ISIS Foundation projects. This will go from 5.30pm until “late”, there is a $10 cover charge and tickets are available now on There will also be tickets available on the door that night (cash only).

  • Who is looking to trim off some of that excess fat before the party season?  Hmm…it might be easier to ask, who isn't! Jiketsu Martial Arts, Fitness & Natural Healing Centre are offering a Core Conditioning Class that guarantees a 6 to 8lbs loss by Christmas!  Classes are on Monday and Thursday from 12 noon until 1pm, at a cost of $225 per month, or on Thursday only from 7pm until 8pm at a cost of $125 per month.  They are also offering a Self-Defense Course which has been approved by the U.S. Department of Defense.  This focuses on quick and easy techniques which work in real life situations, rather than requiring that your attacker gives you time to get into a fighting stance before they come at you at a certain angle.  This is on Thursdays from 6pm until 7pm beginning November 10th and costs $350, a saving of $150 – here's the flyer!


  • Good news if you have a techie to buy for this year – Gateway Systems, through their G-Wiz Technology store, have a few Christmas specials going on -  here's the flyer or you can check out their website at!
