Day Old Poi

DayOldPoi(Sorry I haven’t posted in a while. 🙂 I have been really busy with the holidays and all that jazz. )

Okay so I took this picture because of Day Old Poi by Bu Lai’a. I might be the only one who knows about this song…but it is so hilarious. 🙂

Apparently poi is an acquired taste, and I haven’t acquired it yet. Haha. Its made from the root of taro and its usually a purple color. The consistency is like smooth wallpaper paste. When it’s first made it the sweetest it will ever be because every day after that it gets a bit sour. But it is not sweet, it is pretty bland, even from the beginning.

My family eats more East Coast style since my mother is from Virginia so I wasn’t brought up on the Hawaiian diet. That’s probably why I don’t like poi. 🙂

Do you like poi? What do you like about it?

Maui’s Most Festive Holiday Event! Saturday, Dec. 4 2010

12/01/2010 § 3 Comments

Wondering what to do this weekend? Well, I am happy to tell you all about this awesome event that has happened every year now for 25 years! The Haleakala Waldorf School’s Holiday Faire! Looking for unique gifts for this holiday season? Look no further!

There will be crafts for sale, crafts to do, delicious food, and fun for the whole family!

I like it because you get to see a lot of the crafters of Maui. We have some amazing creative people here.

Also, I love to hear the local bagpipe band play! I used to play the tenor drum in the Isle of Maui Pipe Band and they are going to be playing this year also! I’m not sure when but usually it’s in the morning right when it begins.

It opens its gates at 9am and is finished by 4pm. And all you early birds out there will be happy to know that the general admission is free from 9am-11am!

For more information visit www.waldorfmaui.org!

Hope to see you there!

I Love the Aloha Spirit

11/15/2010 § 2 Comments

The minute I stepped off the plane after being gone for 6 months, I felt something I hadn’t felt in that whole 6 months. The aloha spirit.  Just like true love is a decision, the spirit of aloha is a decision that we all make everyday, to be kind and easy going, to help a brother or sister out and respect the ‘aina (eye-nuh) or land.

Aloha Spirit in the sand

Aloha Spirit - "The spirit of love"

Now, there are some people who live here that don’t display this Aloha Spirit, and it’s okay. Sometimes we’re having a bad day or our life is to complicated. But I believe that deep down in everyone that lives here, there is the Aloha Spirit.

Another way you can feel the aloha is through our music…here is one song I love:

So my hope for you today is that, wherever you are, someone will share a little aloha with you and you will pass it along!

Aloha Nui Loa!
