Lucky We Live Hawaii? Let Us Count the Ways…

October 16, 2009

With every bad, there are ten times as many good. The median home prices here in Hawaii are insane with salaries often not where they should be, but we’ve got the ono kine grindz and wonderful weather, with the thousands and thousands of warm-hearted kama`aina to share it with (to name a few).

I often get asked why I stay here in Hawaii and I ask those very people why I would ever want to leave? We live in paradise. A place that most others can only dream about. Sure, there are certain trade offs, but I would rather live a longer and healthier life with the people I love the most, than be miserable looking for something that was home in the islands all along. It’s something you can’t put a price tag on and I wouldn’t trade that for anything else in the world… Period.

Do ya share my sentiment? Use the comment area below and holla atcho boy. Post some of the personal reasons why you feel lucky to live Hawaii…

I’ll start:

Besides the obvious “weather” answer, I’ll go with:

* Diverse cultures. Diverse cultures = diverse people (personalities, traditions, etc.) and diverse foods.

Where else can you go to a party and enjoy sashimi, beef broccoli, pancit, meat jhun, etc., with your Japanese, Chinese, Filipino, Korean, etc. friends from small kid time? Gotta love it! Lucky I Live Hawaii!

Your turn…

Heart Attacks and Drinking Warm Water

June 22, 2009

I know it’s supposed to be “Fun Day Monday” today, but I got this forwarded email recently and thought that it would be a good idea to share it with my peeps… YOU! 🙂 It’s verrrry edumacational and interesting so check um out go check um out goooo…

Heart Attacks and Drinking Warm Water

This is a very good article. Not only about warm water after your meal, but about Heart Attacks.

The Chinese and Japanese drink hot tea with their meals, not cold water, maybe it is time we adopt their drinking habit.

Heart Attacks and Drinking Warm Water

For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you. It’s nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal.
 
However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion. Once this ‘sludge’ reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer. It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.

Common Symptoms Of Heart Attack
A serious note about heart attacks – You should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting. Be aware of intense pain in the jawline. You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack.

Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms. 60% of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up.. Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Let’s be careful and be aware. The more we know, the better chance we can survive.
 
A cardiologist says if everyone who reads this message sends it to 10 people, you can be sure that we’ll save at least one life.  Be a true friend and send this article  to all your friends you care about.

I  JUST  DID!

Awwww. Happy (and SAFE!) Monday y’all! Have a great week and since I care about each and errry last one of you, drink some tea a-ight!? 😉
