LAHAINA LUAU!


We finally had our Holiday party for work. We went to the Lahaina Luau! It was a beautiful day. We were all allowed to bring one person as our date. I had my friend's daughter as a date since my friend was bringing her boyfriend and didn't want to pay for her daughter. Two of my friends also got to go as someone else's dates.
We arrived there all dressed up in our beautiful dresses. We were greeted by our boss and were given a ticket and a picture ticket. We walked on where we were again greetted by a boy only wearing a wrap around his waist, who also gave us a Mai Tai. Later another half naked boy gave us a lei and walked us to our table. We had a open bar, so I got another Lava Flow and a Little Tita (lets just say I know why I don't drink). After a time of mingling around and taking pictures it was time to sit down and wait for the next part of the Luau, FOOD!
Poke, crab salad, taro rolls, mahi mahi, fruit, fried rice, Kalua pig, lau lau, and many more delicious things!
Desserts too! Haupia, brownie, etc.
Of course ... next..... the ..... DANCING!
Tahitian, Kahiko, drumming, story telling, Uli'uli, Pu'ili....
Let's just say I never knew hips could move that fast...
It was a good show and 3 and a half hours later we were stuffed and ready for a nap.

Well, tomorrow it's another week of work. Have a great week everyone.

JEALOUS! We love the Luau. We were just talking about going back to Hawaii today now you've made us miss it more. Sounds like you had a good time. Miss you, talk to you soon (someday).

Hi :) We're leaving Egypt today and I'm glad...I'm ready to begin our new adventures. It'll be nice to put pictures up soon and show you where we've been. We had a good time, but it's been kind of depressing as well...I just didn't realize how much poverty there was here. Anways, we're off to go pack. Our flight is at 3:20 am! We have to be at the airport 4 hours before our flight! Yikes! Only a one hour flight. Then we go to our new home right away. Hopefully we won't have any trouble at the airport. Hope all is well with you! Miss ya!

Love,

Nicole
