Aloha Friday: Hawaiian Scentsations

Happy Aloha Friday everyone! This week’s edition of Aloha Friday here at A Maui Blog is all about scents….


My question for this week is What is your favorite scent? ” I know it’s hard to pick one so you can put as many as you want.

This question was triggered by my impromptu visit at the Soap and Candle factory of Hawaiian Scentsation. So, while you are deciding on what scent you really like, let me show you some more photos and pics from there.



So, have you decided what scent (or scents) you like the most? Then please leave a comment below by clicking this.

To read what others are talking story about on Aloha Friday, visit An Island Life, here.

And last but not the least, if you would like to know more about Hawaii Scentsations, go to their website, here.

Aloha Friday: Hawaiian Ice Cream

It’s Aloha Friday time and my question for today is “What is your favorite Ice Cream?” Share about the brand or the flavor.

My favorite is Lapperts Ice Cream here on Hawaii. Below are some photos I took the other day when I brought my kids to the Hawaiian Ice Cream Store (at Kamaole Shopping Center) for a treat:

Po La’i e (Silent Night )

Po la`i e, po kamaha`o,
Maluhia, malamalama
Ka makuahine aloha e
Me ke keiki hemolele e
Moe me ka maluhia lani
Moe me ka maluhia lani
Po la`i e, po kamaha`o,
Oni na kahu hipa e
I ko ka lani nani no
Mele na `anela haleluia.
Hanau `ia Kristo ka haku.
Hanau `ia Kristo ka haku.

Po la`i e, po kamaha`o,
Keiki hiwahiwa aloha e,
Ka lama la`i mai luna mai
Me ka lokomaika`i makamae.
Iesu i kou hanau `ana.
Iesu i kou hanau `ana.
