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?

Marilyn Jansen is the creator and even though I’ve only met her twice, she is super nice and really personable. She paints and silk screens her own tshirts. She has written books, from coloring to cooking and even gardening! She is super creative! It’s awesome to have so many artsy people here!
Anyway so check out her website at www.amaryllisofhawaii.com and see for yourself!!

You know what is so much fun to do in Maui? Hike Iao Valley!
It’s historical, full of life, and really scenic…I’m not sure how many people know about it, my mom was saying that she didn’t think that Iao Valley got much exposure. Well, I am gonna make it widely known! haha.
Iao Valley is a state park and the state keeps it really gorgeous! Except the economy has made them have to charge for parking if you are not Kamaaina (resident). But the 5 dollars would be worth it to me! There is a Nature Center that was open but its closed right now, which is sad. 😦 But you can walk around the gardens and even eat at a Cafe that is right next to the Nature Center! Yum yum!
SO next time you are thinking of something to do on a crystal clear day, go up and experience Iao Valley!
Now I took way to many pictures so I’m only gonna post a couple here. I am posting the rest on FB…
For more info on Iao Valley visit:
These past couple of days have been so clear and nice! Very Christmasyy weather! Today we are getting a Christmas tree! I am so excited! Sorry I haven’t posted in a while, just my busy schedule as a full time daughter, on call sewer, and part time web designer.
Have a great day everyone!

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!

So I was at the beach yesterday and I came across this most familiar but unpleasant sight.
I don’t know that much about them, all I know is that their sting hurts really bad and they come when the wind blows onshore. Yeah, I got to teach my little brothers about them so they won’t get hurt when they see one again. Here are a couple websites that might be helpful if you want to learn more!
We saw 3 on the beach that day! If you ever see one, DONT pick it up! Even though the bubble is harmless, the clearish blue tentacles could be wrapped around it or close nearby!
