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!!!"

AND LET'S CONTINUE TO WHERE I LAST LEFT OFF FROM... LOL!!!

ALOHA EVERYONE!!!

AFTER AN AMAZING BIRTHDAY, IT WAS KAHEALANI'S DAY TO GO AND SEE A LIVE MUSICAL PERFORMANCE.

SHE CHOSE, "MATILDA".  I WAS SUPER IMPRESSED WITH ALL THE TALENTED CHILDREN ACTING AND SINGING.  I DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS SHOW.  I THINK THERE IS A MOVIE TOO.








KAHEALANI AND I WAS SO EXHAUSTED FROM THE BUSY CROWDS AND WE WALKED SEVERAL BLOCKS TO ENJOY THE EVENING AWAY.

THE NEXT DAY, KAHEALANI DECIDED TO SLEEP IN AND DO NETFLIX WHILE I WAS UP EARLY, I HOPED ON THE TRAIN AND TUBE TO HEAD OVER TO THE VICTORIA AND ALBERT MUSEUM, ITS FREE AND TOTALLY WORTH IT!!! 


























THERE IS SO MUCH TO SEE AND IT WOULD PROBABLY TAKE SEVERAL DAYS TO SEE EVERYTHING, THEY HAVE A COFFEE SHOP AND A RESTAURANT AND FREE WIFI!!!

SADLY I HAD TO CUT MY MUSEUM VISIT SHORT BECAUSE I WAS GIVEN A CUTE MAP OF PLACES TO VISIT BY ALICE.  SO MY NEXT STOP WAS HARRODS FOOD HALL TO GET A LIGHT BITE AND DRINK.  THIS PLACE IS ACTUALLY AN HIGH END STORE FOR CLOTHINGS AND COSMETICS.  BUT THEY ALSO HAVE AN AMAZING FOOD HALL TOO.


ORIGINALLY I WAS SUPPOSE TO GO THERE AND DRINK THEIR FAMOUS TEAS BUT INSTEAD I GOT THIS...


I WAS CRAVING A VODKA MARTINI BUT I GOT AN ESPRESSO VODKA MARTINI AND IT WAS ONE OF THE BEST CHOICE I'VE MADE ALONG WITH A BOWL OF FRESH OATS PARFAIT.



SITTING NEXT TO ME, A BEAUTIFUL COUPLE FROM GERMANY.



I COULD JUST EAT EVERYTHING HERE!!!

SO MY NEXT STOP WAS "COVENT GARDEN"



THIS PLACE IS LOADED WITH CAFE SHIPS, RESTAURANTS, STREET ENTERTAINMENTS, THE LEGO STORE, THE M&M STORE, SEVERAL MOVIE THEATERS, AND MUSICAL THEATERS.










AND MY FINAL STOP...  CHINTATOWN!!!  YES THERE IS A CHINATOWN IN LONDON!!!


THIS WAS WELL PLANNED AND ORGANIZED BY ALICE, SHE KNEW I WAS CRAVING CHINESE ROAST DUCK!!!  IT WAS DIM SUM TIME FOR ME!!!  I ORDERED ROAST DUCK, CHICKEN FEET, ZONGZI, AND SHRIMP DUMPLINGS.  I KNOW I OVER ORDERED BUT I WANTED TO TASTE A LITTLE BIT OF EVERYTHING.  I ALSO HAD AN EMPTY SEAT OPEN AT MY TABLE AND INVITED A CHINESE ELDERLY WOMAN TO JOIN ME.  SHE ORDERED SOUP AND WE STARTED TO CHAT UP A STORM, SHE IS ORIGINALLY FROM HONG KONG AND MOVED TO LONDON 40 YEARS AGO!!!  SHE SPOKE ENGLISH VERY WELL AND SHARED ME SOME HEARTFELT STORIES OF HER LIFE'S JOURNEY SINCE SHE MOVED TO LONDON.  A WONDERFUL COMPANY TO HAVE AND BEFORE YOU KNOW IT, IT WAS TIME FOR ME TO HEAD BACK TO THE HOTEL.  SO I HAD MY LEFTOVERS PACKED UP AND SAID MY GOODBYES TO THE LOVELY CHINESE WOMAN AND PAID FOR HER MEAL WITHOUT SAYING ANYTHING.

I THEN HEADED BACK TO THE TUBE AND AT THE ENTRANCE I SAW A HOMELESS MAN AND HIS DOG SITTING AT CORNER AND DECIDED TO GIVE MY CHINESE LEFTOVERS TO HIM, THE SMILE ON HIS FACE IS PRICELESS AND BROUGHT ME DOWN TO TEARS.  YOU SHOULD TRY IT SOMETIMES, ITS SO WORTH IT.















I GOT BACK TO MY HOTEL AND KAHEALANI WAS NETFLIXING.  I THEN GOT READY FOR MY NEXT OUTING!!!  UNFORTUNATELY KAHEALANI COULD NOT COME WITH ME BECAUSE ITS AN 18 YEARS AND OLDER EVENT.  KAHEALANI KNEW ALL ALONG, BECAUSE ALICE ASKED FOR HER PERMISSION SEVERAL DAYS AGO IF SHE CAN TAKE HER DAD OUT.  I THOUGHT IT WAS VERY CUTE OF ALICE TO POLITELY ASK MY DAUGHTER FOR PERMISSION...  LOL!!!


SO I HOPPED BACK ON THE TUBE AND HEADED OVER TO THE PHOENIX ARTS CLUB TO MEET UP WITH ALICE.







IT WAS "OPEN MIC" NIGHT AND I WAS NOT EXPECTING PROFESSIONAL SINGING AT ITS FINEST!!!  I MEAN THESE PEOPLE CAN SING!!!  THEY ALL SOUND LIKE THEY SHOULD BE COMPETING ON "THE VOICE".  ALICE IS AN AMAZING SINGER TOO AND THERE WAS THIS ONE LADY WHO SANG THE SONG, "BURN" FROM THE MUSICAL, "HAMILTON", SHE HAD ME IN TEARS.  I MADE ALOT OF NEW FRIENDS AND I GOT PRETTY DRUNK AFTERWARD AND THANK GOD I DIDN'T SING, LOL!!!

I HAD AN AMAZING TIME!!!

THANK YOU ALICE FOR THE WELL PLANNED OUT AGENDA FOR ME!!!

AWWWRITE!!!
