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!!!"

MY FIRST TRIP TO SEWARD, ALASKA!!!

ALOHA EVERYONE!!!

ITS BEEN 9 DAYS SINCE MY SURGERY AND I WAS INVITED TO TAG ALONG WITH SHAUN AND HIS OHANA TO GO TO SEWARD, ALASKA.  WE ARE PLANNING TO STAY AT MIKE & MAYA'S PLACE FOR THE NIGHT SO HERE I GO.

WE LEFT EARLY SATURDAY MORNING AND WE STOPPED AT THE "SUNRISE INN" IN COPPER LANDING - https://www.sunriseinncooperlandingalaska.com/ TO MEET UP WITH MY MOM AND KAHEALANI WHO WERE RETURNING FROM STERLING, ALASKA WHERE THEY HAD BIBLE CAMP.  FINALLY I GOT TO HAVE MOM MEET SHAUN & HIS OHANA INCLUDING CHRIS TOO.  WE ATE BREAKFAST AND THEN MOM WENT BACK TO ANCHORAGE WHILE KAHEALANI STAYED BACK AND JOIN US TO GO TO SEWARD!!!

THE DRIVE WAS BEAUTIFUL AND AMAZING.  AND WE FINALLY ARRIVED AT MIKE & MAYA'S PLACE.

AND LET ME TELL YOU, THEY HAVE A BEAUTIFUL AND HUGE HOUSE!!!  BEAUTIFUL YARD WITH A FIRE PIT AND AN AMAZING KITCHEN THAT I COULD DIE FOR!!!  IT DEFINITELY GAVE ME IDEAS ON HOW I WANT MY KITCHEN BUILT IN THE NEAR FUTURE!!!

WE WERE GREETED BY THEIR SON, JONATHAN WHO SHOWED US TO OUR ROOMS AND THEN WE HEADED DOWN TO SEWARD DOWNTOWN AND WENT TO HARBOR AND CHECKED OUT SOME FOOD TENTS THAT WAS OPEN.  I HAD SO MUCH FUN GIMPING AROUND THE TOWN AND ENJOYED THE VIEWS OF RESURRECTION BAY.





AFTER OUR FUN TOUR AROUND THE DOWNTOWN AREA, IT WAS TIME TO HEAD BACK TO THE HOUSE FOR SOME DINNER AND BBQ YUMMIES!!!

AND I FINALLY GOT TO SEE MAYA COOKING AWAY AND REARING UP HER BEAUTIFUL KITCHEN, AND I'D DO THE SAME THING TOO IF I WAS IN HER SHOES!!!

SHE DOESN'T MESS AROUND AND WHILE US MEN ARE OUTSIDE BBQ STEAKS, HALIBUTS, CHICKENS, AND PORK... AND I FINALLY MET MIKE AND TERRY TOO!!!

SHE'S GOT EDAMAME, SALADS, KALUA PORK, LUMPIA, NOODLES, FRUITS...  ETC.

SHE DON'T MESS AROUND!!!

JUST SEE FOR YOURSELF!!!


 
AFTER THAT AMAZING DINNER, WE HEADED OUTSIDE TO GO PLAY IN THEIR BEAUTIFUL YARD!!!  KIDS WERE RUNNING LIKE CRAZY AND HAVING A BLAST PLAYING FOOTBALL, RIDING BIKES, STARTED THE FIRE PIT UNTIL THE SUNSET.



AFTER IT GOT DARK AND QUIET, WE GOT TO PLAY MUSIC WITH OUR UKULELES AND GUITAR AND SANG SONGS UNTIL WE WERE TIRED AND WE ENDED OUR NIGHT.


WE WOKE UP THE NEXT MORNING AND ATE BREAKFAST, BRENDA MADE THIS AWESOME FRIED RICE WITH SAUSAGES.  AND BEFORE YOU KNOW IT...  IT WAS TIME FOR ME TO HEAD BACK TO ANCHORAGE.  I WANTED TO STAY LONGER BUT I'M SCHEDULED  FOR MY FIRST PHYSICAL THERAPY APPOINTMENT THE NEXT DAY.

I WANT TO EXPRESS A MAHALO NUI LOA TO MIKE & MAYA FOR HAVING US OVER FOR THE WEEKEND.  YOUR HOSPITALITY IS FULL OF ALOHA AND I'M SO GRATEFUL TO HAVE MADE NEW FRIENDS WITH YOUR BEAUTIFUL OHANA TOO.

I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT FIRST WEEKEND AND KAHEALANI LOVED YOU FOLKS TOO.

AND THANK YOU JONATHAN FOR LETTING US STAY IN YOUR ROOM WITH FREE WIFI...  LOL!!!

ALSO ANOTHER MAHALO FOR THE PACARRO OHANA, BRADDA CHRIS, AND KA'IWA FOR SHARING THE ALOHA TOO!!!

LOVE & ALOHA FROM THE WAIPA OHANA
