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!!!"

MEETING UP WITH ALICE IN LONDON-LAND!!!


ALOHA EVERYONE!!!

AFTER A GOOD NIGHT'S SLEEP, KAHEALANI AND I ADJUSTED OUR CLOCKS AND HEADED OUT FOR A NICE MORNING WALK TO A NEARBY MALL.



ITS A BEAUTIFUL MONDAY MORNING IN LONDON!!!  OUR WALK WAS SIMPLE AND EASY TO FIND THE MALL WHILE USING MY GOOGLE MAP APP ON MY IPHONE.

AND WE FINALLY ARRIVED AT THE MALL TO CATCH A MOVIE.



WE CHOSE TO SEE "JURASSIC WORLD - FALLEN KINGDOM".  WE WERE ALSO IN FOR A SPECIAL TREAT.  SO I'VE BEEN TOLD ABOUT THESE "4DX THEATERS":

4DX allows a motion picture presentation to be augmented with environmental effects such as seat motion, wind, rain, fog, lights, and scents along with the standard video and audio. As such, theaters must be specially designed for and equipped with 4DX technology.


WITH THAT BEING SAID, WE COULDN'T WAIT TO EXPERIENCE OUR FIRST 4DX MOVIE!!!

AND ALL WE CAN SAY IS...  "WOW!!!" 

KAHEALANI AND I ENJOYED EVERY SINGLE MOMENT OF THE EXPERIENCE.  WE GOT ROCKED, JOLTED, SPLASHED IN THE FACE WITH WATER, WE FELT THE WIND BLOWING IN OUR FACES, THE STROBE LIGHTS MIMICKING THE THUNDER AND LIGHTNING, AND YOU CAN EVEN SMELL...  NO JOKES!!!  THIS WAS AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE!!!  I HOPE ALASKA GETS A 4DX THEATER SOON, IT IS TOTALLY WORTH THE MONEY.

AND ONE MORE THING...  USE THE BATHROOM BEFORE THE FILM STARTS, EXPECT YOUR DRINKS AND POPCORN TO SPILL ON YOU TOO!!!

AFTER THE FILM WE WALKED AROUND THE MALL FOR A BIT AND THEN WE HEADED OUT TO MEET OUR DEAR FRIEND, ALICE.

SO WHO IS ALICE???

WELL LET ME GIVE A SHORT SYNOPSIS...

I MET ALICE IN A SOCIAL MEDIA GROUP, VAMPIREFREAKS.  I CAME ACROSS HER PROFILE AND WAS ATTRACTED TO HER MASK.
 

I LOVED HOW SHE ARRANGED THE ROSES, CARDS, AND SPIDERS IN SUCH A COOL WAY...  IT IS A WORK OF ART FROM A MASTER OF CREATIVITY AND ORIGINALITY.

I INBOX HER AND BEFORE YOU KNOW IT, SHE SOLD IT TO ME AND I BECAME THE PROUD OWNER OF THIS AMAZING HOMEMADE CREATIVE, BEAUTIFUL, ONE OF A KIND MASK.


AND HERE IT IS!!!  IN MY POSSESSION AND VERY HAPPY TO HAVE THIS IN MY COLLECTION!!!

WE CONTINUED TO KEEP IN TOUCH AND 18 MONTHS LATER I AM FINALLY GOING MEET HER RIGHT HERE IN LONDON!!!

I ALSO MUST ADD, ALICE ALSO MADE MY TRIP TO MOSCOW, RUSSIA A REALITY BACK IN FEBRUARY 2018 WHEN I WAS HAVING DIFFICULTIES GETTING TO RUSSIA DUE TO VISA COMPLICATIONS.  SHE MADE A WAY FOR ME TO GO AND ENJOY MOSCOW AND THE DEPECHE MODE CONCERT!!!

SO ALICE MESSAGED ME TO MEET HER AT THE "EMBANKMENT" TUBE STATION AKA "SUBWAY".

I WAS SO EXCITED AND NERVOUS AT THE SAME TIME.  I WAS REMINISCING ON HOW WE FIRST CHATTED ONLINE AND BECAME CLOSER EVERY TIME WE CONTACTED EACH OTHER VIA SOCIAL MEDIA AND EMAIL.

KAHEALANI AND I ARE WAITING AT THE LOCATION SHE TOLD US TO MEET HER AND WE SEE SO MANY PEOPLE CROSSING AND PASSING BEFORE OUR EYES, EVERYTHING WAS A BLUR AND THEN SHE APPEARED OUT OF NOWHERE.

SHE WAS WAY TALLER THAN SHE APPEARED IN HER PICS.  SHE WAS ALREADY BEAUTIFUL IN HER PICS TOO, BUT IN PERSON...  OMG, I'M SPEECHLESS!!!

I WENT TOWARDS HER AND HUGGED HER RIGHT AWAY AND I DON'T REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENED AFTERWARD...  LOL!!!  SERIOUSLY...  ALL OF A SUDDEN EVERYTHING WENT SO FAST AND BEFORE YOU KNOW IT...  WE'RE CHATTING UP A STORM LIKE WE'VE BEEN FRIENDS SINCE THE BEGINNING OF TIME!!!

I FINALLY INTRODUCED KAHEALANI TO ALICE...  LOL!!!


ALICE HAD IT ALL PLANNED OUT FOR US, SHE TOOK US ON A BEAUTIFUL WALK AROUND SOME OF LONDON'S BEAUTIFUL LANDMARKS.






WE WALKED A GOOD 5 MILES, WE VISITED AND PASSED THROUGH TRAFALGAR SQUARE, BUCKINGHAM PALACE, ST. JAMES PARK, WESTMINSTER ABBEY, BIG BEN, CROSSED THAMES RIVER OVER THE WESTMINSTER BRIDGE, PASSED BY THE LONDON EYE, AND THE SHAKESPEARE GLOBE THEATER WHILE LOOKING ACROSS THAMES RIVER VIEWING THE WALKIE TALKIE BUILDING, BRITISH SECRET SERVICE BUILDING, AND THE MILLENNIUM BRIDGE.

I REGRET FOR NOT TAKING PICS BECAUSE MY IPHONE WAS ABOUT TO DIE AND I WANTED TO RESERVE THE LAST OF THE BATTERY LIFE FOR EMERGENCY CALLS.

WE FINALLY ARRIVED AT OUR FINAL DESTINATION, AN ANATOLIAN RESTAURANT, TAS PIDE.

ALICE RECOMMENDED THIS PLACE AS ONE OF HER FAVORITE PLACES TO EAT.

AS SOON AS WE WALKED IN, THE MUSIC WAS NICE AND THE SETTING WAS WARM AND INVITING.  NICE LIVE INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC TOO.








HONESTLY I DON'T EXACTLY REMEMBER WHAT I ORDERED BUT ALL I KNOW WAS IT WAS NOTHING BUT DELICIOUS.  FROM SOUPS TO THE MAIN DISH TO DESSERTS!!!

OUR CONVERSATIONS WAS SIMPLY NICE AND WARM AND FUN.  WE LAUGHED, WE CRIED, WE SMILED, WE DEFINITELY ENJOYED OUR FIRST MEETING AS WELL AS KAHEALANI DID.

EVERYTHING WAS WAIPALICIOUS, I MEAN DELICIOUS...  LOL!!!

SERIOUSLY IT WAS SO GOOD AND SO WORTH IT.

BEFORE YOU KNOW IT, IT WAS ALMOST 10:00PM!!!  WE HEADED OUT TO THE NEAREST TUBE STATION CROSSING THROUGH DARK ALLEYS AND PUBS FILLED WITH NUMEROUS PEOPLE SINGING AND CELEBRATING NEW ENGLAND'S VICTORY OVER TUNISIA IN THE FIFA WORLD CUP.  IT WAS PRETTY COOL TO SEE THE STREETS FILLED WITH HAPPY PEOPLE DRINKING AND SINGING.

AND THEN WE FINALLY MADE IT TO OUR STATION AND ALICE GAVE US SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO USE THE TUBE TICKET ATM AND HOW TO GET BACK TO OUR HOTEL.  WE PARTED WAYS AND SHE WENT TO HER TRAIN AND WE WENT TO OUR TRAIN.


AS SOON AS WE REACHED OUR FINAL STATION, IT WAS LITERALLY A BLOCK AWAY FROM OUR HOTEL ENTRANCE, SO EASY AND CONVENIENT.



AS SOON AS WE GOT BACK TO OUR ROOMS, WE LET ALICE KNOW THAT WE MADE IT BACK SAFE.  KAHEALANI AND I HIT THE SHOWERS AND RELAXED THE NIGHT AWAY AS I FELL ASLEEP FAST AND KAHEALANI WAS ON THE INTERNET...  LOL!!!

TO BE CONTINUED...

AWWWRITE!!!
