In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So Kalani of An Island Life thought that on Fridays she would take it easy on posting, too. On her blog she’ll ask a simple question for us to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response. Then if we would like to participate, we can do the same.
I am participating this week and my question is: What is your favorite holiday or celebration?
I know some friends who are into Halloween, I know another who loves Thanksgiving, but for me I LOVE CHRISTMAS! How about you?
Don’t forget to go to An Island Life and visit other participants this Aloha Friday
I googled to find the official website for the Day of Hope and was quite disappointed that there is very little information in there (basically just the registration). (Note 11/10: I take this back – they promoted it well. There was a brochure that I can download on their website, I just didn’t see it)
I know they did a mail out through Maui Weekly (more info there), but I thought they would have done more on the website. I wish I had thought about posting about it sooner to create more buzz on the net but it’s a little bit late now. The event is this Saturday. Anyway, I posting now and will blog again about it on Saturday as I am participating on the 5K run.
Speaking of participating on the 5K run, I am afraid I would be the last one to finish as I had not really been exercising that much. I walked on the treadmill the other day for 30 minutes and that’s about it for my training for this run. I have not run in 2 months! Oh well, if I was able to do it on the Run For The Whales and the Wahine Run 2007 and 2008, I can do it again this Saturday for the Day of Hope.
They will also have the Locks of Love at the event and I am contemplating on donating my hair. We shall see…
To give you an idea of how fun this event is, visit last’s year’s coverage on this blog of Live Maui Webcast and Videos. Go there and see the 2007 photos. That’s where I got the photo here of my friend T and his son J from last year’s Day Of Hope Go here to see 2006 photos. See you on Saturday!
I am what they call a “Kama’aina”. I have been living on Maui since 1994 and consider Maui as my â€œhomeâ€. I am 40ish. I am married to a wonderful man we will call Haole Hubby. We have two tweens who we will call Hapa Boy (11 yr old) and Hapa Girl (10 yr old). I will talk more about them later, but for now this section is about me.
I started blogging in 2006 at Lizaâ€™s Eyeview. I enjoy it tremendously â€“ I am actually addicted to it. I see as lot of wonderful benefits of blogging both serious and fun. Itâ€™s like talking story online!
I do not have a journalism degree. English is my second language. If you are looking for an eloquent writer, you are in the wrong blog. But if you want to read the ramblings of a Kama’aina (and local kine mom) talking story online, you’re on the right blog. To Maui visitors checking out this blog, it’s good to get the inside scoop, yah?
I still post at Lizaâ€™s Eyeview but I decided to start this blog for a reason. The reason? You will just have to find out when upload my “About The Blog” post
