HE HAWAI'I AU MAU A MAU.... E HANA PONO... MAI PONO HANA...
I AM HAWAIIAN... ALWAYS & FOREVER
MY BEAUTIFUL LIFE!!!
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.
I TOOK KAHEALANI TO "FUN FACTORY" IN HILO, HAWAI'I AS PART OF HER BIRTHDAY GIFT. WE WON A BUNCH OF PRIZES LIKE SEVERAL STUFFED ANIMALS, CANDIES, AND SCHOOL/ART SUPPLIES. WE ALSO ENJOYED PLAYING SEVERAL VIDOEGAMES.
EVERY MORNING BEFORE I TAKE KAHEALANI TO SCHOOL, SHE ALWAYS TAKES THE TIME TO PLAY WITH HER DOGS, "KAIDA", "TITA", & "KOKO" WHO ARE LOCATED IN THE FRONT OF THE HOUSE NEAR THE GARAGE. SHE ALSO HAS 7 MORE DOGS WHO ARE LOACTED BEHIND THE HOUSE!!!
KAHEALANI DOING BEGINNING "TAI CHI" AT COCONUT ISLAND.
KAHEALANI GETS AN "X-BOX 360 KINECT" FOR HER BIRTHDAY!!!
KAHEALANI'S BIRTHDAY WAS ON A MONDAY SO WE DIDN'T HAVE ANYTHING BIG BECAUSE IT WAS ON A WEEKDAY. SO INSTEAD, I TOOK HER OUT TO "LILIUOKALANI GARDENS & COCONUT ISLAND" FOR HER EXERCISES, THEN WE WENT TO GO PICK UP HER BIRTHDAY CAKE, WENT TO THE MALL, AND THEN BACK HOME. THEN SHE OPENED UP HERE PRESENTS AND THEN ORDERED PIZZAS FOR DINNER AND THEN HAD HER BLOW OUT HER CANDLES. THIS IS ONLY THE FIRST HALF OF HER BIRTHDAY PARTY. STAY TUNED FOR MORE VIDEOS & PICTURES IN THE NEAR FUTURE.
"PAPAYA" IS MY ALL TIME FAVORITE FRUIT TO EAT AT ANY TIME OF THE DAY. SINCE I MOVED TO BETHEL, ALASKA IN 1998, I HAVE ONLY BECOME MORE AGGRESSIVE WHEN I HAVE ANY CHANCE TO EAT A "PAPAYA". THE ONES AT THE STORES IN BETHEL IS NO WHERE CLOSE TO THE 'TASTE" I'VE ALWAYS LOVED. SO WHENEVER I GO HOME TO HAWAI'I, I EAT AT LEAST 1-2 PAPAYAS A DAY. IF YOU HAVEN'T TRIED IT YET, THEN I RECOMMEND THAT YOU DO.
KAHEALANI IS SHOWING ME HER HULA DANCE THAT HER & HER CLASSMATES WILL PERFORM ON "MAY DAY 2011" IN HAWAI'I.
In Hawai'i, May Day is also known as Lei Day, and is normally set aside as a day to celebrate island culture in general and native Hawaiian culture in particular. While it was invented by a poet and a local newspaper columnist in the 1920s, it has since been adopted by state and local government as well as by the residents, and has taken on a sense of general spring celebration there. The first Lei Day was proposed in 1927 in Honolulu. Leonard "Red" and Ruth Hawk composed "May Day is Lei Day in Hawai'i," the traditional holiday song. Originally it was a contemporary fox trot, later rearranged as the Hawaiian hula song performed today.
OUR 1ST TIME TOGETHER EXERCISING AT "COCONUT ISLAND" & "LILIUOKALANI GARDENS" IN BEAUTIFUL HIO, HAWAI'I. THE LAST TIME WE DID THIS WAS IN BETHEL, ALASKA LAST EARLY SUMMER. SO GOOD TO BE BACK WITH KAHEALANI. SHE HAS GROWN & MATURED FASTER THAN I EXPECTED. I'M ALREADY DREADING THE "TEEN YEARS..." ARGHHHHHHHHHHH!!!
ANOTHER FAVORITE PLACE OF MINES IS THE "HILO FARMER'S MARKET". THE Y CARRY THE FRESHEST FRUITS AND VEGETABLES AND MOST OF ALL, VERY INEXPENSIVE. IF YOU ARE EVER IN HILO, PLEASE GO CHECK IT OUT, I PROMISE YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.
