Things to Do on Maui in December

Things to Do on Maui in December

Christmas on Maui may sound preposterous to some — from the outside looking in, the Valley Isle doesn’t exactly call to mind wintry holiday vibes — but December in Maui happens to be one of the most splendid times on the island. While the rest of the world may be experiencing some of the coldest days of the year, Maui sees remarkably beautiful weather (with just the right amount of bite and breeze), Humpback whales have returned to its shores,…

Forgetting Sarah Marshall Filming Locations (2008)

Forgetting Sarah Marshall Filming Locations (2008)

There have been a number of romantic comedies filmed in Hawaii, from 2004’s 50 First Dates to 2011’s Just Go With It (Adam Sandler can’t get enough of Hawaii – and who can blame him). However, writer and star of 2008’s Forgetting Sarah Marshall Jason Siegel (who’s best known for the hit TV show How I Met Your Mother) describes the film as a “romantic disaster movie”. While that might be fair to say of the plot, it couldn’t be…

Christmas on Maui – Things To Do

Christmas on Maui – Things To Do

It may not snow on the islands, but we can assure you that Christmas on Maui is just as festive. You’d be surprised at the possibilities of trading in a White Christmas for a sandy one. A Christmas in Hawaii will be a lot warmer, that’s for sure. Where else would you get the luxury of a day at the beach this time of year? Maui is full of the holiday spirit, sporting local events, festivities, and entertainment to fulfill…

‘The Songs of C&K’ – Good Time with Henry Kapono and Friends

‘The Songs of C&K’ – Good Time with Henry Kapono and Friends

It’s not easy becoming a household name in the islands, but Henry Kapono sure made it look that way. With a Grammy-nomination and countless Na Hoku Awards courtesy of the passion and diligence poured across 15 albums, it’s any wonder as to what Kapono can’t accomplish. These days the legendary artist has set his sights on something beyond him – the next generation of Hawaiian music stars. Kapono recently established the Henry Kapono Foundation, an organization dedicated to supporting Hawaiian…

Forever Florals Hawaiian Perfume – a Perfect Gift

Forever Florals Hawaiian Perfume – a Perfect Gift

Some of the most beautiful and fragrant flowers grow in Hawaii. About 90% of native Hawaiian flowering plants don’t grow anywhere else in the world. At any time of the year the air is filled with fragrance of some native flower in bloom, and this evokes more memories as we think about our sun-filled days spent in the state of Aloha. Many companies develop floral Hawaiian perfume products that are easy to take home. Today, I feature a line of products…

Wild West Pahoa Town

Wild West Pahoa Town

Header photo credit Scott Hess; original photo cut and enlarged. Deep in the forests of the Big Island lies Pahoa Town – a sleepy little cowboy town, its sidewalks made of hundred-year-old planks of wood left over from a bygone time. A few old hippies wander around the streets, also left over from a bygone era. Pahoa Town’s rustic colorful buildings look like fake storefronts for a western movie, but they are real and still used as homes and businesses….

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle Filming Locations (2017)

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle Filming Locations (2017)

Like any Hollywood actor, Hawaii has played many different characters onscreen. We’ve seen it play a prehistoric world in Kong: Skull Island (2017), alien jungle planets in Avatar (2009) and Predators (2010), and even itself in The Descendants (2011). And in 2017, it was chosen to play the world of “Jumanji”. In Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, the titular fictional jungle – which isn’t even seen in the original 1995 film – is finally realized, so now there are many…

Ooklah the Moc’s Every Posse – a Vibrant Roots Reggae Jam

Ooklah the Moc’s Every Posse – a Vibrant Roots Reggae Jam

Few bands command attention. Even fewer command respect. Oahu’s reggae supergroup Ooklah The Moc grabs both in a way that makes them bona fide legends in the local music scene, their name a key marker for Hawaii’s roots reggae obsession. Ooklah The Moc revitalized the reggae subgenre with dynamic albums doubled down by commanding live performances across the Pacific. Their authoritative lyrics and bumping island rhythms spoke to the underdogs, the downtrodden, and the benevolent believer. Ooklah The Moc’s latest…
