Rebooting A Maui Blog – Maui Local Likes To Talk Story Once Again

Best Maui Beach

Have you noticed it’s been almost a month since my last post. And that was not even a valid post because I just posted a poster about Maui  to make myself better about posting a new content and let you know I am still alive :) . In reality it’s been a couple of months since I am MIA (missing in action).

So today, let’s reboot this blog! Enough of me trying to come up with a post worthy of being published on a reputable travel magazine. That wasn’t really the intent of this blog. Now back to talking story, the way it should be.

Time for me to just post about the everyday happenings in my life. For example, our walks at Keawakapu with the best Italian Dog on Maui, our @SonnyIggy.

Another example is our trip to the Ululani Shave Ice place in Kihei as a family. That was fun and so local. The shave ice were so ono, truly the best shave ice on Maui!

And the other day, I went gaga taking photos of this Pink Hibiscus plant in front of NAPA auto parts store in Kihei. The plant was blooming with vivacious pretty pink flowers, it got me so excited! By the way, I should mention here that they buy at NAPA store was super helpful to me. I bought an automatic transmission fluid for my squeaky Maui Cruizer and the guy even helped me pour it in the place where it should be poured. He didn’t have to buy he went to help me anyway! That’s Maui local style :)

Oh I am so excited I got this post done. Ready, set, post! Looking forward to your comments and I am planning on replying too. Let’s get re-connected shall we? :)

A Day In A Life Of A Maui Local known as @amauiblog

Maui Sunset by Mike Neal

This post idea started with this photo by Mike Neal.  He is my kindred spirit when it comes to loving Maui Sunrise and Maui Sunset.  Almost everyday he posts a photo on his Facebook profile and I enthusiastically share it on A Maui Blog page.  This Friday, he shared the photo above and for me that photo is a great reminder of why I am love living on Maui.  That is the Maui I love.

I know a new blog post is needed. My original goal was to post 2 to 3 times a week but I am failing.  But no need to fret. I think I’d post whenever I can and that is ok. No pressure.

Last night I thought, “why not blog about my day“?  Nothing spectacular, just an ordinary day of a Maui Local who happens to be a blogger.  Not sensational, but a glimpse of what it is like to live on this island we love (as a blogger I should add as other Maui Local will have a different typical day)

So where do I begin? In the morning I suppose.  When I woke up I found out that the internet router in our house is broken.  That’s enough to for me to experience some “internet withdrawal” symptoms because I could not use my Mac computer to tweet and post on Facebook.  But it only lasted a few minutes as I slapped myself and told myself that I live on Maui, why the heck am I so bothered by a broken router.  When hubby woke up, he told me we, as a family, will go to Costco to buy a new router for me.  My family knows how to please me :)

Everyone in the family went to do our Saturday morning chores. I managed to tweet what I was doing through my IPhone Instagram.  While cleaning and de-cluttering I was having this conversation in my mind, with myself, about the #SeeMaui Tweetup that  was supposed to happen at 2pm that day.  Should I go?  I really really wanted to.  It will be so much fun and I would be so stoked to personally meet some of the famous travels bloggers I had been following on Twitter.  On the other hand, Saturday is supposed to be our “family day”.  My husband’s truck is in the shop and so we only have only car to use in the family. I guess I could just car pool with Erik Blair, the Accidental Consultant, who lives on Kihei and also going to the tweetup.  When I mentioned to my hubby about the tweetup, he asked “what about our plans to go to Costco?” Oh yeah, we are gonna go to Costco as a family. I guess I could have justified my going by saying it is “work” and represent Aloha Luxury Properties while I was there.  But I wanted to be sensitive to Maui Visitors Bureau and I wasn’t sure if promoting our vacation rental on that setting is appropriate because they have their own vacation rental companies sponsoring #SeeMaui. Maybe it was ok but I opted not to do it since I didn’t ask.

And just to let you know, going to Costco as a family is really one of our family’s “bonding time”. I am not kidding.  Funny and weird but true.  It’s a time for us to ride in the car together, not only to talk about what we need to buy at Costco and what we want to buy but can’t afford right now but to talk about a lot of things going on in our life.  When we get old and kids have their own kids, they will tell them stories of how we used to drive to Costco together – he he he.

We did go to the beach later in the afternoon to walk Sonny, the famous Italian greyhound, and to watch the Maui Sunset.  It was a very windy day at Keawakapu yesterday but there were still many people at the beach.  Aside from a usual picture taking I even took a video to share with you how windy it was:

Despite the wind, it was a good day at the beach.  We saw our good friends Erik and Emmi and their kids.  It’s always fun chatting with them. Sonny had a good run. I got some great photos of Maui Sunset and at night we had our dinner. Guess what we have for dinner? If you guessed Costco pizza you are right!  :)
