Hi, Angel! How long have you been a member of the Poly Ad Ohana?
Going on 7 months now!
That’s great! So Angel, what is your favorite thing about Hawaii?
My favorite thing about hawaii, is the ALOHA SPIRIT. Hawaii makes you feel welcomed, makes you feel like you belong, makes you feel like you are part of the family- even if you are just visiting. You will not find this kind of feeling anywhere else, you can’t explain it but it’s almost as if Hawaii is inviting you into it’s home to stay as long as you want. You feel an automatic connection, no matter what part of the world you are from, or how different you are, Hawaii will make you feel like you belong.
What is your favorite Hawaiian movie?
Lilo and Stitch, even if it is just a cartoon made by Disney. But for me it really represented the meaning of Ohana 100% in my opinion, “Ohana means family, family means nobody gets left behind.” That one phrase exemplifies how the people of Hawaii truly take care of their own. Once you are a part of the family, you will always be taken care of, no matter what. When you come to Hawaii, locals will make you a part of their growing Ohana, you will build lasting relationships with someone you just met and become Ohana.
What is your favorite local food? Where is the best place to eat it or to buy it?
So many choices to choose from, I would probably say some of the BEST places to eat would be:
Alicia’s Market– They have some of the best poke on the island, and they are not shy with their portions!
21 Mart is one of the BEST places to get a poke bowl. Maui Mikes makes the best roast chicken sandwich! Oh, and Kam Bakery because of their Poi Donuts.
