Rubbah Slippahs or just “Slippahs” is how we say slippers. Don’t get this confused! You people on the mainland,etc call them “Flip Flops”. Again, don’t get em confused. They’re SLIPPAHS over here. Nothing you or anyone can say or do will change that. Flip Flops? No. Slippahs? Yes.

You can use Flip Flops if you want to sound like a Kook.

Aloha Friday – Talking Halloween

Share the Aloha -- Share on Facebook0Tweet about this on Twitter0Pin on Pinterest0Share on Google+0Buffer this pageShare on LinkedIn0

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So Kalani 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 (or your kid’s) costume going to be for Halloween? (I think this was asked before, but I still would like to get more ideas :)

I like reviewing my sitemeter. It’s interesting to see what people are searching for that landed on my blog. Tonight someone was searching for “Maui Food Blog”. I followed the search and found out that there isn’t exactly one called Maui Food Blog. However, following the google search led me to a blog of a famous chef on Maui! Bev Gannon blogs! Yahoo! For those of you in the mainland (or around the world) who are not familiar with her, I decided to embed video of her for you to get to know her:

The following is an excerpt from a Maui Weekly article. I thought I would post it here because it is something that many are interested and wants to know. Below is the link to read the rest of the article:

Local economists share their predictions for the global, national and local economies at business outlook forum. “This too will pass” we will get through this.”

Despite the warm rays of sunshine outside, those seated within the Elleair Ballroom of the Maui Beach Hotel on Friday, Oct. 17, shivered at the chilling reality of an uncertain economic future. More than 100 residents spent the lunch hour at the 34th Annual Maui County Business Outlook Forum hosted by First Hawaiian Bank and the Maui Chamber of Commerce, seeking answers to the questions, “How bad is it?” and “How long will it last?” Despite the savory aroma of the Maui Beach Hotel’s famous butterfly shrimp, there were some who nervously anticipated the sting of a painful economic forecast in the wake of a turbulent housing crisis and the controversial billion-dollar Wall Street bailout. Hawai’i Pacific University Professor of Finance and Economics Leroy Laney and University of Hawai’i Professor of Business Economics Jack Suyderhoud each presented a summary of the 2008 economic slowdown, outlining the events leading up to it and potential outcomes. As he took the stage, Dr. Suyderhoud addressed the audience with an apologetic tone, admitting he wished he could have attended the luncheon under more sunny circumstances. However, he managed to brighten the mood by interjecting some humor into his presentation, effectively taking sour lemons and squeezing them into lemonade. We may be in a slump, he said, but it is important that we keep our chins up and focus on the positive. CONTINUE READING ON MAUI WEEKLYHERE.
