Little Village Noodle House in Chinatown, Honolulu

Few people know that it was the Chinese who brought the original sugar mill to Hawaii in 1800. The first official Chinese citizens to arrive in Honolulu were crew members aboard four ships in 1788. A Chinese resident and trader set up shop around the Honolulu harbor area in 1823, and by 1840, there was about 30 Chinese in the district that eventually became known as Chinatown. Many more Chinese were imported as contract workers for the sugar fields, some eventually staying, gravitating towards Chinatown and starting small businesses.

Aloha or universal love are the primary words that sum up our affection and passionate affair for anything Hawaiian. Blessed with plumeria-scented trade winds, colorful kaleidoscope sunsets, brilliant tropical flowers, warm seawater, perfect waves and a rich diversity of cultures, you easily discover the reason we call these islands paradise.

Sunsets and rainbows, green forest and restive blue seas, all naturally colored things are my siblings. We have played together on the floor of the world since the first stone looked up at the stars. ~ Maya Angelou

Sometimes it is better to keep some secrets to yourself, but at other times the truth simply needs to be told. Thus, now that I’m getting more mature and can make rational decisions on my own, I’d like to share this revealing story with other believers or non-believers.

Against The Highest Peaks

Post image for Against The Highest Peaks

by Viktoria Vidali on September 14, 2012

in Poetry,Quotations

Nevertheless, all falsehood set aside,
let all that you have seen be manifest,
and let them scratch wherever it may itch.
For if, at the first taste, your words molest,
they will, when they have been digested, end
as living nourishment. As does the wind,
so shall your outcry do – the wind that sends
its roughest blows against the highest peaks;
that is no little cause for claiming honor. 

~ Il Paradiso, Dante Alighieri

The popularity of the Polynesian Festival at the wharf last weekend – complete with outrigger canoe races, hula dancing, luau specialties, shave ice, lomi lomi (massage), Locals (flip flops), traditional arts and crafts, lilting slack-key music, and crowds dressed in their best Hawaiian florals – proves how far-reaching the Spirit of Aloha extends. Around our town, like on the islands, bumper stickers read “Live Aloha” nearly as often as those that say, “Keep Santa Cruz Weird.”
