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 TRIP TO MOSCOW RUSSIA - PART 01

ALOHA EVERYONE!!!


SO MY JOURNEY BEGINS...




AFTER WORKING 3 WEEKS STRAIGHT AT BOTH JOBS, I WAS SO READY FOR A VACATION!!!








NEXT STOP...




THIS IS MY FIRST TIME ARRIVING AT THE PORTLAND OREGON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, AND I FOUND IT TO BE VERY NICE AND SIMPLY ACCOMMODATING SINCE I HAVE A 6 HOURS LAY-OVER!!!














TIME ACTUALLY FLEW FASTER THAN I EXPECTED, I ATE A LIGHT BREAKFAST AND PRETTY MUCH CHILLED AT THE GATE UNTIL I WAS CALLED TO GET MY BOARDING PASS...






I GOT UPGRADED TO "DELTA COMFORT" SEATING WHICH WAS REALLY NICE!!!

THANK YOU DELTA AIRLINES!!!


AMSTERDAM HERE I COME!!!




WHILE FLYING IN THE AIR FOR 9.5 HOURS, THE SERVICE WAS OKAY AND THE FOOD WAS AVERAGE.  BUT THE MOVIES SELECTION WAS VERY NICE AND MANY FILMS TO CHOOSE FROM ASIAN TO AMERICAN FILMS.  THE CHAIR WAS VERY COMFORTABLE TOO.


THE PLANE RIDE APPEARED TO GO FASTER AND IT DIDN'T FEEL LIKE I WAS IN THE AIR FOR 9.5 HOURS BUT THAT'S JUST ME AND WE LANDED IN AMSTERDAM!!!


















AMSTERDAM SCHIPHOL IS THE 3RD BUSIEST AIRPORT IN EUROPE AND I BELIEVE IT!!!  PEOPLE DON'T JUST TAKE THEIR SWEET AS TIME GETTING TO PLACES WITHIN THE AIRPORT, I'VE NEVER SEEN PEOPLE WALK SO DAMN FAST, ALMOST EQUIVALENT PACE TO MY JOGGING...  LOL!!! 





BUT THEY ARE SERIOUS TRAVELERS.  AND THE NUMEROUS SECURITY CHECK POINTS AND TRANSFERS ARE ALSO ANOTHER THING THAT WAS NEW TO ME, SO HAVE YOUR PASSPORT AND VISA READY TO SPEED YOUR PROCESS TO GET CLEARANCE TO THE NEXT TERMINALS.

AS FOR THEIR SERVICES AND LEISURE, THE AIRPORT HAS A BUILT IN HOTEL, NUMEROUS RESTAURANTS, SPA TREATMENT CENTERS, DESIGNATED SMOKE ROOMS WITHIN THE TERMINALS VERSUS GOING OUTSIDE OF THE AIRPORT.  THEY ALSO HAVE SOME SERIOUS SHOPPING OUTLETS TOO.




 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

AND I SETTLED FOR A SIMPLE SANDWICH...



THIS ONE WAS MY FAVORITE... THE TESLA CAR...

 
 
 

MY LAYOVER WAS 12 HOURS BUT I DIDN'T SEEM THAT LONG EITHER SINCE THERE WAS SO MUCH TO SEE AND DO AND JUST WALK AROUND AND EXPLORE THIS HUGE AIRPORT.

AND FINALLY IT WAS TIME FOR ME TO FLY OUT AGAIN!!!

 
 
 



GOT MY TICKET AND HEADED OVER TO MY JET WITH "AIR BALTIC"...  AS SOON AS I SAT ON MY SEAT, I WAS PRETTY IMPRESSED WITH AIR BALTIC CONCEPT AND DESIGN!!!





I ESPECIALLY LIKE THE MINI MONITORS THAT DOES EVERYTHING FROM SAFETY DEBRIEFINGS, GATE CONNECTION INFO UPON LANDING AND THE COOL REAL-TIME GPS TRACKING AIR TRAVEL!!!


AND RIGA, LATVIA HERE I COME!!!


UPON ARRIVING IN RIGA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, IT IS ALOT SMALLER AND SOMEWHAT MORE STRUCTURED AND ORGANIZED.  MAYBE BECAUSE SECURITY IS MORE TIGHT THAN OTHER AIRPORT.




WELL I FINALLY GOT MY LAST TICKET TO MY FINAL DESTINATION!!!

MOSCOW HERE I COME!!!


SAME AIRLINE AND ITS -20 IN RIGA, LATVIA!!!


WHICH MEANS DE-ICING IS REQUIRED BEFORE TAKE-OFF...  AND MOSCOW HERE I COME!!!




ONE MORE SECURITY CHECK-POINT TO GO AND I'M OFFICIALLY IN MOSCOW, RUSSIA!!!



BUT TO SEE THIS AFTER SECURITY...  REALLY???  JULIA ROBERTS???  I MEAN NO DISRESPECT BUT RUSSIAN LADIES ARE SUPER ATTRACTIVE PLUS THEIR ACCENT IS SMOOTH AND SENSUAL LIKE SILK!!!

AFTER TRAVELING 17 HOURS AND 5522 MILES IN THE AIR AND 30 HOURS TOTAL LAY-OVER...

THIS WAS A BEAUTIFUL SIGHT TO SEE AS I LEFT THE AIRPORT EVEN THOUGH IT WAS 2:00AM!!!
 

THE DRIVER GAVE ME A NICE CITY AT NIGHT TOUR OF MOSCOW AS IT WAS PART OF THE WAY TO MY HOTEL.  THE TEMPERATURE WAS -8 AND IT WAS VERY NICE OF HIM FOR HIS KIND SERVICE.  I WAS VERY TIRED AND AFTER I ARRIVED AT MY HOTEL, I CHECKED IN AND GOT THE TOP FLOOR WITH A JACUZZI TUB AND A NICE VIEW OF THE CITY AND THEN I TURNED ON THE TELEVISION AND SEE THIS...


LIFE IN MOSCOW IS GONNA BE SUPER AWESOME AND IT IS JUST THE BEGINNING!!!

TO BE CONTINUED... 

AWWWRITE!!!
