OUT AND ABOUT: On the scene with Kamila McDonald + Daryl Vaz + the Jamaica Youth Theatre + Ribbie Chung + Usain Bolt

SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY: Dec. 14, Argentina. Ever seeking out fresh new opportunities to connect with his global fanbase and put on an entertaining show, The World's Fastest Man, Jamaica's own Usain Bolt, headed to South America recently to take part in a special event (a 100-m exhibition) that saw him racing against the Number 59 bus on the 9 de Julio in Buenos Aires before an enthusiastic home crowd. Taking a breather after the big race, the affable sprint king shares a photo-op here with Mauricio Macri, one of the town officials on hand for the day's fun running activities. (Photo: The Independent)

THE DAZZLER: Dec. 11, Kingston. Consistently a delightful sight for tired eyes, the gorgeous Kamila McDonald was among the folks who stepped out the other day for the Monte Carlo Gaming Lounge's 10th anniversary celebrations in the capital. Last time we spoke, the fab TV hostess and mom confided that she was putting together a fitness video series set to debut online in the coming year. (Photo: Skkan Media)

ON THE HOUSE: Dec. 11, St. Andrew. Barbican's Acropolis was all abuzz last Tuesday evening as the official opening of Ribbiz drew a lively and assorted mix of socialites, party-hoppers and foodies to the hip hot-spot.

THE MORE THE MERRIER: Dec. 14, Barbados. Jamaica's in-it-to-win-it delegation pulled off a clean sweep at last week's Caribbean Schools' Drama Festival in the Bajan capital of Christchurch, snagging trophies (11 in total) in such categories as Best Acting Ensemble, Actress, Director and Best Overall Performance, among others. The group's winning entry was titled "Wi Love Wi Self," a vibrant piece I hope can be fleshed out into a full-length production for 2014. (Photo: Jamaica Youth Theatre)
