Hawaiian Airlines Premier Club Lounge and Ululani’s Shave Ice Grand Opening in Maui Lani

Hawaiian Airlines and Ululani Shave Ice

And just as I thought I will be slowing down on posting here at A Maui Blog, things start happening that made me want to post. Funny how that happens :)

Yesterday I attended the Blessing and Re-opening of the Hawaiian Airlines Kahului Premier Club Lounge. I had a wonderful time.  I will blog more about it on Wailea Realty’s Maui Blog and will link it up here later.  For now I wanted to give you a link to the Premier Club information. Visit http://at.hwnair.com/IfjHM to learn how you can join Hawaiian Airlines Premier Club and relax before your next flight out of OGG.

Today I am going to the Blessing and  Grand Opening of the Ululani’s Hawaiian Shave Ice’s Maui Lani location! And Maui Manapua will open there too! The opening celebration with the public is today, Saturday, January 31, 2015 from 10:30am to 3:30pm. Go there and have the best Shave Ice and Tasty Manapuas on Maui!

Still A Maui Blogger

Plumeria

In case you are wondering if ever I am going to blog again here on A Maui Blog … the answer is yes. How often? The answer is I am not sure. The good news is that I really didn’t stop blogging, nor have  my love for blogging waned.  I guess it’s just that my life is changing, my purpose and my passion is shifting a bit.

If you didn’t already know, I am now the Interactive Media Director at Wailea Realty.  I started with them in May of 2014. I am happy to say that I am still enjoying my work there.  And that’s where I am blogging! The fun thing is I get to blog about Maui as part of my work! The name of our company blog is Maui Blog.  It’s doing well. We started this Candid Answers series about Maui and I think you’d have fun reading it.

So you see, I still am a blogger, just not so much here on A Maui Blog.

Does this mean I will now close down my blog? No! On the contrary I am inspired to continue, in a slightly different direction.  I am hoping for more community collaboration….

This week I will have a guest blogger and I am very excited about it. She’ll be talking about gift suggestions for Valentines Day on Maui and beyond …

… ’till next time … a hui hou!

Thinking of where to eat for a special dinner? Have you heard about the “Wailea Restaurant Week?”

This week  Wailea Restaurants are joining together to help end hunger on Maui by supporting the Maui Food Bank with an event called Wailea Restaurant Week. This community supported event showcases all the amazing cuisine that Wailea chefs have to offer at extremely reasonable prices. Prix fixe 3 or more course dinners are set at $29, $39 and $49 options. 

Some of the agents in our Wailea Realty office frequent Duo and Spago located at the Four Seasons and rave about the food so they are definitely on my list to experience. I know I better make early reservations for these heavy weights.

Recently I had the pleasurable opportunity to eat twice at the New Matteo’s located at the Wailea Town Center and was delighted with their Fish Sandwich,their tasteful and  inventively seasoned pasta dishes with a side of mixed green salad , we all know their pizza is undeniably delicious.

Longhi’s has been a long time favorite of mine with their amazing lobster salad priced at just $19 and they are on the list for this special event.

Also next door is Tommy Bahamas  which we all frequent, in our office, for their great value  happy hour that goes from 2-5pm. Not only convenient but great food and drink specials delivered with a smile from their friendly waitstaff.

This first time event on Maui begins next week May 12th – 16th out at Makena Golf Resort in Kihei, Maui. This special business educational and networking opportunity has been planned Maui Business Brainstormers who have been filling an unmet need in Maui County with NO COST business education and networking opportunities since 2012.

Two Workshops or Seminars are scheduled each day throughout the week. With this format, anyone interested in a topic can fit at least one session into their schedule. These guys are Brilliant! (#MBB)

Never before have they put together an event like the Maui Small Business Week. Our business community is so fortunate to reap the rewards from this training and camaraderie. MBB cares about event quality and have invited an impressive list of high quality guest speakers.

The momentum of planning and preparation continues to build, attracting attendees to collaborate with private organization and local government. It seems like everyone wants to play a part in this historic event!

This is Maui County’s opportunity to network, grow small businesses, create 21st century jobs and increase Hawaii’s global competitiveness.We want to use education to strengthen Maui’s economy and future employment opportunities and also bring some spark and energy into our hearts and minds. We want YOU to play a part this week as well!
