MY BEAUTIFUL LIFE!!!

MY INTRO

ALOHA AND WELCOME TO MY PERSONAL BLOG!!! I THOUGHT WHY NOT SHARE MY PERSONAL GAINS & STRUGGLES THAT LIFE PUTS OUT TO EACH AND ONE OF US. I FEEL THAT THROUGH THE GIFT OF "GIVING & SHARING", THERE IS NO WAY BETTER THAN START THIS BLOG WHICH IS ALL ABOUT ME, MY OHANA (FAMILY), HOALOHA (FRIENDS), AND EVEN ENEMIES WHICH ARE THE VERY ONES I NEED TO LOVE AND ACCEPT.


I'LL SAY THIS STRAIGHT UP, I DON'T HOLD BACK MY FEELINGS FOR ANYONE AND IT'LL COME OUT OF MY MOUTH ON HOW I FEEL ABOUT YOU AND OTHERS. I DON'T GO BEHIND ANYONE'S BACK AND START RUMOURS WITH HOPES THAT IT WILL CIRCLE AROUND AND FINALLY HIT ITS TARGET. WHY TAKE THE LONG ROUTE WHEN I CAN GO STRAIGHT TO THE POINT. PERSONALLY, I THINK THAT IS THE "REAL" WAY OF LIVING LIFE, "BE REAL" AT ALL TIMES EVEN WHEN THE WORLD IS WATCHING.


ON THE OTHER NOTE, "I AM" THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PERSON IN THE WHOLE UNIVERSE FROM THE WAY "I SEE IT". I AM NOT SPEAKING FROM OTHER PEOPLE'S FEEDBACK OR "CONCEITEDNESS". "THIS IS" WHAT I CHOOSE TO SEE MYSELF EVERYDAY WHEN I WAKE UP FROM MY BED AND THANK "AKUA" (GOD) FOR GIVING ME ONE MORE DAY TO LIVE, REGARDLESS OF REGRETS FROM THE "YESTERDAYS" TO THE FEARS OF "TOMMOROWS".


IN MY EYES, LIVING A "BEAUTIFUL LIFE" CAN ONLY BE ATTAINED BY "CHOICE" AND IT REQUIRES "INTEGRITY", "HONESTY", "UNCONDITIONAL ACCEPTANCE", "FORGIVENESS" AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, "LOVE".


AS MY BEAUTIFUL ANCESTORS HAVED ALWAYS BELIEVED:


'Ike aku, 'ike mai, kokua aku kokua mai; pela iho la ka nohana 'ohana.


WHICH MEANS, RECOGNIZE OTHERS, BE RECOGNIZED, HELP OTHERS, BE HELPED; SUCH IS A FAMILY RELATIONSHIP.


SO ONCE AGAIN, "WELCOME TO MY BEAUTIFUL LIFE!!!"

ANOTHER FUN WEEKEND IN ANCHORAGE AND BACK TO MY "ARENA ONE" GYM!!!

ALOHA EVERYONE!!!
 
I HEADED BACK TO ANCHORAGE, ALASKA FOR ANOTHER FUN WEEKEND WITH MY COUSIN KA'IWA AND MY NEPHEW KEKOA.
 
POOR KA'IWA & KEKOA WAS DELAYED IN JUNEAU, ALASKA FOR 6 HOURS DUE TO HIGH WINDS ADVISORY, BUT AT LEAST THEY MADE IT IN AND I COULD TELL THEY WERE TIRED AND THEY DEFINITELY CRASHED SO WE COULD GET UP THE NEXT DAY EARLY TO DO SOME "GUYS ONLY" FUN!!!
 
FIRST STOP...  "CABELA'S"
 
 


 
AS AN ALASKA AIRLINES EMPLOYEE, WE ALL RECEIVED A "PERFORMANCE BASED PAY - PBP" CHECK FOR EXCEEDING COMPANY WIDE GOALS IN THE FOLLOWING AREAS: 
 
SAFETY
CUSTOMER SATISFACTION
COST CONTROL
PROFIT
 
I WILL NOT DISCLOSE ON MY AMOUNT OF MY BONUS CHECK BUT I CAN TELL YOU WENT ON A SHOPPING SPREE LIKE A MADMAN!!!
 
I BOUGHT ME AN "HK VP40 HAND GUN WITH 250 ROUNDS
A DIAMOND ARCHERY PRISM BOW WITH ARROWS
A SKI-DOO MXZ X-RS IRON DOG SNOW MACHINE
 
NEXT STOP...
 
VERIZON STORE TO PICK UP A "DATA WIFI MODEM FOR MY HOUSE AND NOW I HAVE INTERNET FOR MY VIDEOGAME CONSOLES, COMPUTER DESKTOP, ALEXA (WHICH WILL BE REPLACED BY THE NEW "GOOGLE HOME" DEVICE), AND ANYTIME I HAVE FRIENDS COME OVER TO VISIT, THEY CAN NOW HOOK THEIR DEVICES TO MY INTERNET...  AND WHY WOULD I DO THIS???  BECAUSE VERIZON JUST ANNOUNCED AND STARTED THEIR "UNLIMITED DATA PLANS!!!"
 
WHICH MEANS ALL MY DEVICES:  IPHONE, IPAD, DATA WIFI MODEM WILL ALL RUN OFF OF MY NEW "UNLIMITED DATA" PLAN!!!
 
NOW MY DAUGHTER KAHEALANI WILL BE SO MUCH HAPPIER THIS SUMMER TO WATCH HER NETFLIX...  LOL!!!
 
AND FINALLY MY LAST STOP WAS AT THE APPLE STORE TO GET AN "APPLE TV" SINCE I NOW HAVE UNLIMITED INTERNET!!!
 
LIFE IS GOOD!!!
 
AND WE ALL ENDED THE EVENING...
 

WATCHING "JOHN WICK:  CHAPTER 2"...  TWO WORDS FOR YOU...  "FUCKING EPIC"
 
AND BEFORE YOU KNOW IT...  ITS TIME FOR ALL OF US TO SEPARATE AND RETURN BACK TO OUR RESIDENCE.
 
 
KA'IWA BACK TO JUNEAU, ALASKA
KEKOA BACK TO SITKA, ALASKA
AND ME...  BACK TO BETHEL, ALASKA
 
video
 
INDEED AND VERY FUN WEEKEND FOR ALL OF US!!!
 
UNTIL NEXT TIME, I'LL PROBABLY WON'T SEE THEM UNTIL LATE MAY SINCE I'LL BE SUPER BUSY WITH UPCOMING 3 SPARTAN RACES!!!
 
 

SO I'LL BE HITTING THE GYM HARD...  STARTING NOW!!!
 
NOW THAT MY "ARENA ONE" IS FINALLY READY TO BE ABUSED!!!

SPARTAN WARRIOR BEASTMODE!!!
 
BENCH PRESS
DUMBBELL FLY
PUSH UPS
PLANKS
 
AND HEAVY ROPES JUST FOR FUN!!!
 
(I FUCKING LOVE MY "ARENA ONE")
 
 
 
AFTER A NICE TRAINING SESSION, IT WAS TIME FOR A LITTLE RELAXATION WATCHING "RISE OF THE SUFFERFEST" ON MY PLAYSTATION 4.
 
YES MY TOENAILS ARE TIFFANY BLUE PER KAHEALANI'S PICK BECAUSE EVERY TIME I GO IN FOR A PEDICURE, I ALWAYS LET KAHEALANI CHOOSE THE COLOR.
 
YUP...  I'M A PROUD DADDY TO MY KAHEALANI AND SHE'LL ALWAYS BE MY BABY!!!
 
AND THAT PRETTY MUCH CONCLUDES MY WEEKEND!!!
 
UNTIL THEN, STAY TUNED FOR MORE BLOGGING!!!
 
AWWWRITE!!!

MY WORKOUT ROOM IS FINISHED!!!

ALOHA EVERYONE!!!
 
I'M STILL IN JUNEAU "LA LA LAND"...  BECAUSE I HAD SO MUCH FUN THAT I CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK!!!
 
MY NEXT STOP IS IN NOME, ALASKA IN A FEW WEEKS!!!
 
BUT FOR THIS WEEK, I AM SUPER STOKED TO HAVE MY WORKOUT ROOM REDESIGNED AND CUSTOM REBUILT TO MY SPECIFICATIONS!!!
 
BEFORE:
 
 
FOR 6 YEARS I PRETTY MUCH HAD A BOWFLEX ONLY...
 
AND THEN OVER THE YEARS I ADDED DUMBBELLS AND METAL PLATES AND BARS, ETC...
 
 
AND BEFORE YOU KNOW IT, IT WAS GETTING WAY TO CROWDED, I ALSO HAD MY DESKTOP COMPUTER AND SEVERAL STORAGE SHELVES.
 
AND THEN I KNEW IT WAS TIME FOR A WHOLE REMODELING AND REDESIGNING OF THE NOW CALLED, "ARENA ONE".
 
I HIRED A GOOD FRIEND WHO IS AN AMAZING VISIONARY AND CONTRACTOR.  I GAVE HIM MY IDEAS AND WHAT I WANTED TO ADD AND THIS IS WHAT HE HAS CREATED...
 
 
AFTER
 
THE NEW AND BAD ASS...
 
"ARENA ONE"  
 
 
video
 


 
 
I LOVE THIS PICTURE...  I GOT THIS FOR MY 44TH BIRTHDAY...  THANK YOU SIS!!!
 
 
 
THE BOWFLEX IS NO LONGER NEEDED AND HAS BEEN REPLACED WITH A:
 
 SQUAT/BENCH PRESS COMBO RACK,
 
AN ENTIRE DUMBBELLS SET STARTING FROM 10LBS - 65LBS
 
A PAIR OF BOWFLEX SELECT TECH DUMBBELLS,
 
A PULL-UP BAR,
 
A TRX HOME SUSPENSION TRAINER SYSTEM,
 
HEAVY ROPES WALL SUSPENSION,
 
AND COMING SOON...  A FULL SIZE PUNCHING BAG!!!
 
IT HAS A NEW PAINT JOB, A SURROUND SOUND AUDIO SYSTEM WITH SUBWOOFER, ESSENTIAL AROMA OIL DIFFUSER, YOGA BALL, PUNCHING GLOVES WITH FOCUSED MITTS, AND L.E.D. LIGHTING PLUS BLACK LIGHTING.
 
AND THIS IS ONLY THE BEGINNING...
 
 
NEXT UP...  A WHOLE NEW BATHROOM WITH AN INDOOR SAUNA...  THAT'S RIGHT, AN INDOOR SAUNA FOR 3-4 PEOPLE CAPACITY!!!
 
HERE'S THE VISIONARY PLAN OF THE NEW BATHROOM:
 

 
AND HERE'S A ROUGH DRAFT OF THE FLOORPLAN:
 
 
 
THE BATHROOM IS ON THE LEFT SIDE FROM "ARENA ONE" AND AS YOU CAN SEE ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE BATHROOM, WILL BE THE "INDOOR SAUNA" ROOM WHICH USE TO BE MY DAUGHTER'S ROOM.
 
AFTER EVERY HARD DAY OF TRAINING/WORKOUTS, NOTHING IS MORE THERAPEUTIC AND RELAXING THAN A HOT SAUNA TO RELAX, HEAL, AND RECOVER, AND THEN FINISH OFF WITH AN OASIS SHOWER WITH A RAIN FOREST SHOWER HEAD WITH PEBBLE TILED SHOWER FLOORING.
 
I WILL NAME THIS THE "RECOVERY" ROOM.
 
IT WILL HAVE MOOD LIGHTING, BUILT IN AUDIO SPEAKERS FOR MUSIC, ESSENTIAL AROMA OIL DIFFUSER, WITH AN OVERALL BAMBOO TONE TO COMPLETE THE ROOM ACCENT.
 
SO THINGS ARE LOOKING UP AND MOVING REAL FAST AND ITS ONLY GOING TO GET BETTER!!!
 
 
MEANWHILE AT ALASKA AIRLINES IN BETHEL, ALASKA...
 

 
ETHAN WRITING DOWN THE GAME PLAN!!!
 

 
SENIOR AND BEAST RAMPER...  LEGENDARY PAUL!!!

"THEY DON'T TALK BACK" A STORY WRITTEN BY MY FRIEND, FRANK KATASSE!!!
 

By Frank Henry Kaash Katasse
 Directed by Randy Reinholz 
Three generations of Tlingit men face the challenges of a summer of change.
 When 17 year-old Nick takes a floatplane from Juneau to his grandparents’ village, his arrival means changes for his fisherman grandfather, his cousin Edward–who hasn’t spent much time away from home–and his Desert Storm-veteran father. Just as these Tlingit men are adjusting to their new lives together, the boys’ grandmother delivers shocking news. A world premiere portrait of a 1990s Alaska family. A World Premiere produced in Association with Native Voices at the Autry and La Jolla Playhouse.


 
MY AMAZING AND LOVING COUSIN, KA'IWA.
 


THIS STORY HAD ME IN TEARS SEVERAL TIMES, I COULD RELATE TO THIS STORY TO MY OWN UPBRINGING WHEN GROWING UP IN HAWAI'I.
 
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PLAY TO BE SEEN IF IT EVER TOURS IN YOUR TOWN.  IN MARCH THEY'LL BE PLAYING IN ANCHORAGE, ALASKA!!!
 
AND THE NEXT DAY...  IT WAS TIME FOR SUPER BOWL SUNDAY!!!
 
BUT MORE PICS OF BEAUTIFUL JUNEAU...
