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!!!"

MAKING "20 ROLLS OF SPAM MUSUBI!!!"




SPAM MUSUBI IS A VERY POPULAR SNACK AND LUNCH FOOD IN HAWAI’I. IT IS MADE IN THE TRADITION OF JAPANESE “ONIGIRI” ALSO KNOWN AS “OMUSUBI”. “SPAM MUSUBI” IS COMPOSED OF A BLOCK OF RICE WITH A SLICE OF GRILLED “SPAM” ON TOP AND “NORI” (SEAWEED) WRAPPING TO HOLD IT TOGETHER.

I CAME TO BETHEL, ALASKA IN 1998 AND WHEN I STARTED SHARING THIS SNACKS TO MY FRIENDS, IT BECAME A BIG HIT TO THE PEOPLE OF BETHEL. WHEN I GOT INVITED TO POTLUCKS, IT WAS EXPECTED ALREADY FOR ME TO BRING “SPAM MUSUBI”.

SO NOW I WILL SAY THAT I MADE 19 ROLLS OF SPAM MUSUBI WHICH MEANS: 4 CANS OF “SPAM”, 20 CUPS OF RICE, MY SECRET MARINADE FOR THE “SPAM”, ANOTHER SECRET MARINADE FOR THE RICE, AND 20 FULL SQUARE SHEETS OF “NORI” SEAWEED. THIS WAS REQUESTED BY MY GOOD FRIEND SARAH WHO IS LIKE A SISTER TO ME AND IT IS FOR HER “ENGAGEMENT PARTY”.

HAPPY ENGAGEMENT, SARAH & ISAIAH!!! YOU HAVE MY BLESSINGS!!!
