DON’T LET THE TOURISTS HAVE ALL THE FUN

Some things are better admired from afar. Waikiki happens to be one of those things. Did I mention that I now have cracks in the skin on the back of my heels. That’s how you know it was a great summer… you have been wearing nothing but slippers for 2 months straight. The dream is alive. Cheers – RM

REIKO’S MIRACLE

Sunday, August 10th, 2014

I don’t know about you but this has been one hell of a summer, ending in style with little Miss Reiko’s baby luau. You can always tell when people put love into what they do for their family and Uncle Luke and Auntie Alaana did not hold back any love when planning their youngest daughter’s 1st birthday. To start Alaana trained the young girls twice a week for months to get them in sync for the entertainment. The hard work was not in vain as all were impressed with the hula routine and the poi ball presentation, especially me since I brought Capri to many a practice and saw first hand what it takes to master the art of dance. Many chee hu’s were let loose during the show. Luke called in a few well earned favors with his boys at 5-0 and had all his guests cruising in outdoor comfort. The live entertainment on stage was complemented by the oh so ono samoan cuisine. Generations of family and friends showed up to enjoy the day in the park and the young fire dance champion of the world did not disappoint. Always nice to hang out with people that aren’t buried in their smart phones the entire time. The world moves pretty fast. If you don’t slow down and take a look at it once in a while you could miss it entirely. – RM

IS THIS REAL LIFE?

Well I guess I will share these pics since everyone has been asking me why I was a no show at our Helena’s dinner/video. As luck would have it that particular day just happened to be one of those rare east side days that leaves the sandbar so inviting that it becomes irresistible. I had to do it. My niece Domo was in town and had the pleasure of cruising the bay with her BFF for her trip, Capri. We made a few runs back to the pier to replenish cocktails and snacks before we realized the sun had gone down over the mountains and it was getting dark fast. Toasted to a crisp we headed home feeling very content. Did you really expect us to drive to town after a day like that? I think not. Besides Helena’s is always there (well almost always it’s only open Tues. – Fri.) and days like this at the sandbar are few and far between. Mahalo for your understanding I promise to be present for the next one. Aloha – RM
