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 06

ALOHA EVERYONE!!!

AFTER AN AMAZING AND EPIC CONCERT, I WAS VERY EXHAUSTED AND I WENT STRAIGHT TO MY HOTEL AND SLEPT THE NIGHT AWAY!!!

I WOKE UP THE NEXT DAY AND ATE BREAKFAST DOWNSTAIRS AND PRACTICALLY CHILLED THE REST OF THE DAY AS IT WAS MY LAST DAY AND I WAS NOT TOO EXCITED TO LEAVE MOSCOW SO SOON.

BUT THAT TIME HAS COME AND I PACKED UP ALL MY THINGS AND I EVEN MADE MY BED AND EMPTIED MY TRASH CAN.  I TOOK ONE LAST LOOK OUT THE WINDOW AND ENJOYED THE BEAUTIFUL CITY LIGHTS OF MOSCOW, MY EYES BEGAN TO WATERED UP BECAUSE I WAS ALREADY MISSING ALL MY NEW FRIENDS, ESPECIALLY ALEKS.

I HEADED DOWNSTAIRS TO THE LOBBY AND CHECKED OUT, THE STAFF ARE VERY NICE AND INVITING AND HOPED TO SEE ME RETURN SOON.

I ARRANGED AN UBER PICK UP AND HE SHOWED UP PRETTY FAST.

I LOADED UP THE TRUNK AND SAT IN THE FRONT PASSENGER SEAT, THE DRIVER SURPRISINGLY SPOKE ENGLISH PRETTY WELL AND ASKED ME IF I WAS OK.  NOT EVEN REALIZING BOTH MY EYES WERE TEARING AND RUNNING DOWN MY CHEEKS.  I SAID TO HIM THAT I'M SAD TO LEAVE SO SOON BECAUSE I TRULY ENJOYED MY TIME IN MOSCOW.  HE THEN ASKED WHAT TIME MY FLIGHT LEAVES AND I TOLD HIM MY FLIGHT LEAVES IN 5 HOURS AND I WANT TO GO EARLY IN CASE CUSTOMS AND SECURITY TAKES A LONG TIME.  HE SAID THAT I HAVE TIME AND THAT HE'D LOVE TO GIVE A FAREWELL TOUR OF MOSCOW CITY AT NIGHT.  I GRACEFULLY ACCEPTED AND WE PASSED BY ALOT OF OLD BUILDINGS AND STATUES.  MOSCOW IS INDEED A VERY BEAUTIFUL CITY, I CAN IMAGINE WHAT SUMMER MUST LOOKS LIKE.

AS WE WERE CLOSE TO ENDING OUR TOUR, WE STOPPED AT ONE MORE PLACE...



HE NEEDED TO FILL UP HIS CAR WITH GAS, AND GUESS WHAT I DID, I PAID FOR HIS FILL UP...  YOU SHOULD HAVE SEEN THE LOOK ON HIS FACE...  IT WAS PRICELESS AND I FELT GOOD ABOUT IT.

AND TO THE AIRPORT I GO.  WE ARRIVED AT THE AIRPORT AND WE UNLOADED MY BAGS AND HE WANTED TO TAKE PICTURE OF US AND I DID THE SAME THING.



I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER THE GENEROSITY FROM THE PEOPLE OF MOSCOW FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE.  I DIDN'T KNOW "ALOHA" EXISTED IN RUSSIA.








ALOHA A HUI HOU E MOSCOW!!!  I WILL RETURN!!!

I FLEW BACK TO RIGA, LATVIA AND THEN TO AMSTERDAM AND THEN TO MINNEAPOLIS.

U.S. CUSTOM WAS PRETTY SIMPLE AND FAST.  AFTER PASSING THRU, I WAS GREETED BY MY FAVORITE DOG...



SNOOPY!!!



I ALSO PICKED A GREEN TEA FRAP...  YUMMY!!!

FROM MINNEAPOLIS I FLEW TO SEATTLE AND THEN TO ANCHORAGE AND FINALLY BACK TO BETHEL, ALASKA.

IT WAS DEFINITELY ONE OF MY BEST TRIP I EVER MADE SINCE CHINA 1995.

I'D LIKE TO PERSONALLY THANK A DEAR FRIEND WHO LIVES IN LONDON WHO MADE MY TRIP TO MOSCOW A DREAM COME TRUE BY ASKING HER FATHER TO SPONSOR ME.  I WILL NEVER EVER FORGET THIS MOMENT IN MY LIFE.  ALEKS, YOU ARE FOREVER IN MY HEART AND THOUGHTS AND I LOOK FORWARD TO MANY MORE MEETINGS IN THE VERY NEAR FUTURE.  AND I ALSO WILL NOT FORGET MY NEW FRIENDS I MADE AT "SPIELBEERG BAR" TOO!!!

FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART, THANK YOU VERY MUCH AND I AM FOREVER BLESSED AND GRATEFUL!!!

I ALSO LIKE TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE AMAZING AIRLINES...

ALASKA, DELTA, AND AIR BALTIC FOR GETTING ME TO MOSCOW AND BACK SAFELY!!!

THE WONDERFUL HOTEL STAFFS AND THE HEARTWARMING UBER GENTLEMAN AND THE ANOTHER MAN WHO BOTH GAVE ME FREE TOURS OF MOSCOW BY CAR.
