If it is "5 o'clock somewhere," does that mean it can be 5 o'clock anywhere and all the time?

Smile The INS AND OUTS OF HULA PIE....

FROM A GOOGLE SEARCH:




Let me introduce you to a new pie that your taste buds will love! Meet the hula pie.

What’s a hula pie, you ask? It’s a very generous serving of macadamia nut ice cream on top of a chocolate cookie crust. Then this decadence is topped with chocolate fudge sauce, whipped cream and more macadamia nuts. Sound good? Did I just hear your stomach growl? Or was that mine?

We took this photo of a hula pie that we shared at Duke’s Kauai Restaurant. If I remember correctly, the plate was about nine or ten inches in diameter, so maybe that will give you an idea of how big this dessert actually is. It is definitely very sharable for two or more people.

Hula pie is so famous that the TS Restaurants even have a web page devoted to the pie with suggestions for how to eat it. You can navigate to that page from this link.

When you’re on Maui, Kauai, or Oahu, I’d recommend you try one of the TS Restaurants where they serve the hula pie. They all have an open-air, casual, island atmosphere. They serve fresh island fish as well as beef and chicken dishes. All of the restaurants in the collection have great ocean views. I’ve personally enjoyed dining at

Duke’s Kauai – Located on the East side of Kauai in the Kauai Marriott
Duke’s Waikiki – Located on Oahu at the Outrigger Waikiki Hotel
Kimo’s – Located on Maui in Lahaina
Hula Grill Kaanapali – Located at Whalers Village shopping center on Maui’s Kaanapali Beach. (At this location, there are tables that are literally on the beach and it’s fun to kick your shoes off and let your toes play in the sand.) 2011 Update: looks like Hula Grill has pulled Hula Pie off their menu.
Leilani’s on Kaanapali Beach at Whalers Village
To see the entire collection of TS Hawaii Restaurants, click here. If you plan to go to one of these restaurants for dinner, I’d suggest you book a reservation as these restaurants are pretty popular.

If you are looking for other Kauai Restaurants, you’ll find loads of helpful information in this comprehensive Kauai restaurant and review guide

Best place to stay-if you qualify-the Hale Koa ( warriors house) Armed forces recreation center on ft DeRussy ( its actually on Waikiki right next to the hilton hawaiian village) or Bellows Air Force Recreation Center on Windward Oahu.
Best food-Keniki's plate lunch in Wiamanalo-looks like a hole i the wall-great local food and not expensive. the North shore shrimp shacks, Malasada's at Leonards bakery in Honolulu, mac nut pancakes at Kimo and Boots in Kialua.Chocolate pie at teds bakery on the northshore.
Best entertainment-the night show at the Polyniesian Cultural Center.
Best souvenier-generally hawaiian jewelery or aloha wear-personally a black washable silk dress that i got at hilo hattie for next to nothing-it goes in all kinds of situations and travels great.
Best site to see-outside of Pearl Harbor-which along with ground 0 everyone should see once in their life-the view at the Pali Lookout,the winter surf on the Northshore and the Whales in the spring ( also since you will be there over Halloween-downtown Honolulu on Halloween night. Just dont take youngsters cause its anything but G rated)

I have finally found the time to take a step back and really study everyone's suggestions about food and from what I can see, it looks like the North Shore is where I need to be for food as seafood is what i like.

On the Maui side ? I am still reading and am dont mind fielding suggestions.


Nontheless, a huge thank you to all on this and this is really really helpful for me in understanding what i want and where, etc. Also helps me to cut down on getting to my destination and THEN asking ?'s.........

That way I can hit the places that I want , meet people and have fun conversing while living life the way its meant to be lived:


HAVING FUN -
and in the process have a few Rita's and other assorted what nots in the evening while decompressing.



So YES to all, this is very helpful to me - A HUGE

And yes, your suggestion about the bakeries I have cut and pasted in my hotmail acct; will promise to post a few bakery pics.



BEST SOUVINEER? I have finally decided on your suggestion and another person's as well:

jewelry and stained glass.



ANYWHO -









on each adventure I enbark on, I choose to put together a collection of I-pod music that helps me to decompress during my daily life; esp during rush hour traffic.
I put them together in order of the tempo/pace of my vacation - thus setting the mood for me to be in a state of relaxation while driving. And we ALL know too well how much fun rush hour traffic can be.


So w/o any further adieu, here is what I am currently llistening to on my I-pod:



1) "Hawaii 5-0" Tv theme.
2) "Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride" by Mark Keali
3) "Surf Paina" by Sean Na Auro
4) 'Rhythm of the Ocean" by Hawaiian Style Band
5) "Tiny Bubbles" by Don Ho
(hey...ya jjuusttt gotta have Don Ho on your I-pod shuffle)

6) "He Mele no Lilo" by Mark Keali
7) "Tropical Love" by Doc Powell
8) "It's 5 O'clock Somewhere" by Alan Jackson
9) Come to the Carnival" by New Islanders
10) "Superstition" by Raven-Symone
11) "Thriller" by Michael Jackson
12) "Monster Mash" by Borris Picket
13) 'The Munsters' Tv show theme
14) "Surfing on the East Side" by Troy Fernandez
15) "Katchi Katchi music Makawao" by Willie K
16) "Pi'L Mai Kai Nala" by Rob Kahahalau
17) "Volcano" by Jimmy Buffett
18) "Margaritaville" by Jimmy Buffett
19) "Songbird" by Kenny G
(for all those sunsets)

20) "No Shirt, No shoes, No Problem" by Kenny Chesney
21) "Back to the Island" by Jimmy Buffett


and......

22) "I will be There (We are Ohana)" by the Hawaiian Style band

Now if I cud just find the Hawaiian Punch tv commercial audio.



Q: Did I miss any?? Feel free to chime in w/your suggestions.



Ok - a fairly good selection bbuutttt "Goofy Question" time for all you who have been over to Honolulu and the Maui areas:

For a top 40, current hits kinda of a radio station.....what do I have for a choice?? I wud like to listen to some good music while I am out in the am jogging.


vacationing's fun but I gotta remove SoMe of those pesky pounds that I gain back during these days of fun.








Crazy thing I discovered the other day for dieting:

USE SMALLER PLATES.

I know!

Strange but I am finding out that it is helping me reduce the intake of dem pesky calories.


TOPIC CHANGE!!

hey.....wud I need to pack an umbrella or take one with me whereever I go??

Ireland just popped into my mind and I am wondering if this is the same for Hawaii.


Okey dokey........it's getting time for pro football season here in the DFW area so that means more occupancy for us where I work at so this vacation cudnt come at a better time.


Last year??


remember when the Texas Rangers were in the World Series??

Well.........

Where was I??


WALT DISNEY WORLD (see below blog)


PST......we were SOLD OUT 2 weeks prior and two weeks after -




COMING UP NEXT:


The receiving of the travel documents, being thankful for a direct flight & final preperations for an adventure of a lifetime:

** MY VERY FIRST VACATION TO HAWAII **



Stay Tuned

Talking mmm sunshine

My recommendations:


For food: yogurland, tryed it for brunch last time I was in honolulu and it was AMAZING!!! There is also a great cuban place in chinatown(of all places) called soul de cuba that has a really nice ambiance and the food is to die for.

For fun: there are all kinds of things to do in hawaii, most of my trips have been to Oahu, and the beach still remains my favorite. Lanikai beach is, in my opinion, the best setting. There is a company called Hawaii Beach Time that delivers everything you could ever want to have at the beach right to you. Last time we were there we rented their "for 2" package at Lanikai, which is a 2 person kayak, 2 really nice beach chairs, 2 snorkel sets, a cooler filled with ice, and an umbrella for $119 a day. SOOOOOO worth it. They deliver to any beach on the island so definitely look them up

Hotel: the edition in waikiki. Its a very nice new upscale hotel that owned by marriot. We loved it.

I'm with you and we already have the shrimp truck mapped out for our trip there there in a couple of weeks. This will be our third time eating there. And the Shave Ice is very good! Thanks for that reminder, I had forgotten that.

Which Hyatt on MAui, Kris? Pods & I stayed at the Hyatt on Kaanapali Beach on our honeymoon 25 years ago- it was blissful!

We are hoping to go next summer- a few nights in Kaui and a week at Aulani. I love all the suggestions you have been getting for your trip- I'm going to use them for our trip as well. Thanks, everyone!

So I'd figure if ya google "Son'z Maui at Swan Court", it should bring you to the hotel address of the Hyatt.


FYI: I was told a few days ago that there is some just wonderful snorkeling very close by near the Hyatt so I have packed my snorkeling gear.




Ok......I figure one more update (this Sat) b 4 it's ALOHA TIME.

The Swan Court is at the Hyatt we honeymooned at- it's very nice, we had a lovely meal there. ALso loved Longhi's in Lahaina.

And there are a ton of creatures right off the beach at the Hyatt. We actually scuba dove there- walked into the ocean, no boat necessary. It was the highlight of our trip.

Makes me wish we were going back there this next trip in August, but we want to try Kauai and Aulani.

Have a great time!

If it is "5 o'clock somewhere," does that mean it can be 5 o'clock anywhere and all the time?

Aulani looks like a very nice destination hotel and have plans on taking a tour of it and seeing what one of their standard rooms looks like.

And the layout of their grounds is just FAB.





ANYWHO --

Just finished getting my OnE suitcase all packed and ready to go; but it just wouldnt be complete without me packing my (Disney related) Halloween costume.

Check -

My "Maui Downhill" layered clothing?

packed.

Check -

AND -

last but not least


my portable dvd player and other various stuff for the long plane ride over.


Got LOTS of stuff planned -

And

gonna feel like seeing Cinderella's castle for the very first time
once I touch down over in the Aloha State.






UP NEXT:


WITH EVERY STORY, THERE IS A BEGINNING.
