Hi, Shalei! Thanks for talking to us again!
What is your favorite Hawaiian Tradition or Holiday? How do you and your Ohana celebrate?
My favorite holiday might be Lā Ho’omaika’i (Thanksgiving). We prepare a traditional meal together – We harvest Taro, cooking and cleaning it then pounding it to make Pa’i ‘Ai. We prepare Kalua pig in the Imu (underground oven). Along with Lomi Salmon, we catch and prepare I’a (fish) ‘A’ama (black crab) Opihi and ‘Opae. Then we spend time together, go to church and share food with the needy.
We have a few more questions in our Lightning Round, are you ready?!
Snorkeling or Zipline?
Mac Salad or Potato Salad?
Mac Salad of course.
Pineapple or Mango?
Best Hawaiian dessert? Where can you find it?
Kulolo! But it has to be homemade.
Best Beach in Maui?
For Families I would say Kama’ole III, but if you’re looking for something off the beaten path then I’d suggest Waiehu Beaches.
Best Hiking Spot in Maui?
Waihe’e Ridge Trail
Thank you for sharing all your traditions and things to check out during the Holidays on Maui, Shalei! Happy Holidays!
