Just look at the spicy shrimps... by the way, they removed all the heads, so it is not so bad... si?
There are pieces of fried chicken strips, deep fried shrimps, tortillas, shrimp cocktail and a cheese salad.

There’s a little church down Kihei way,
‘Cross the road from Ma’alaea bay,
Close to God, the people pray, at Keolahou.
This little church by the ocean spray,
Comes to life on the Sabbath Day,
Flowers and songs the Island way at Keolahou
Though it’s old, it’s still inviting and seems to say,
“Komo mai,a e pule” – Come in and pray
So, if home is near or far away,
Come to church on the Holy Day
With new friends of Hawaii nei, at Keolahou
The little church down Kihei way,
Has grown with love in every way
Serving folks both night and day, at Keolahou.
This little church by the ocean spray
Spreads its arms to those who pray.
Sharing love along the way, at Keolahou
Inside the Bounty Music shop where I bought the Xaphoon for about USD53, cheaper than what was advertised in the internet
Trying out the Ukulele with Jordan Lee and Hollis Lee after the Sunday service in Keolahou church in Kihei, established in the early 1900's

I am with Dr Hani from Oman, a medical doctor who teaches family relationships. A very animated speaker who speaks from the heart.
This is Emoto, a Japanese Hawaiian who works in the background most of the time, making sure that all the audio visual equipment are working all the time.

This is the place where we place our plates,cups, bowls and cutlery after we have finished our meals and the volunteers will wash them. Thank God for these 20 over volunteers serving us.
This is the main buffet line where we will get at least four different dishes besides, bread and a salad bar.
This gym equipment is to tighten the abs muscles, Can't wait to see if I can come back with a six-pack! So just wait and see if that happens?

Woke up this morning at about 6.30AM, I didn't sleep very well. Breakfast was at 7.00 AM and since the session will only start tomorrow, I went out to the town to check out the place. There are a couple of small shopping malls where I bought some key chains and two others, Roman and Hosea walked with me to the beach.
The accommodations and facilities at this Haggai Institute is fantastic, I will blog about them later on. As for my room, I have a double bed all to myself, but I also have a room-mate. Earlier, I slept for a hour or so and then went down for dinner at 7 PM where the rest of the delegates were already there. It was a simple buffet with white rice, corn, macaroni cooked with fish, red beans with black beans, a simple salad bar, apple crumble, jelly, tea, coffee. mmm.. yummy! I must find the gym fast!!!
Aloha! I finally arrived at Honolulu International Airport. but nobody greeted me with a 'lei' (a flower garland given as a sign of welcome) sigh! I see that it has not been renovated for quite a while. I did not encounter any immigration officers that gave me trouble, just the normal unloading of all your personal belongings, mobile phone, notebook into the tray for security inspection. I had to take off my shoes though, but thankfully I did not have to take off my belt! After another short flight on the Hawaiian airline, all three of us from Malaysia finally met up at the Kahulu airport but we had to wait for the 'Speedi-shuttle' which took half an hour to arrive to send us to Haggai Institute. Not that speedy at all! The mountains looked so beautiful with the top shrouded in the clouds, I hope I can find time to check them out!
As I was not too particularly hungry and wanted to be thrifty, I bought myself a ham sandwich and a sushi roll all for a price of 2,000 Won washed down with a bottle of water. A simple meal at McDonalds would have cost me 5,000 Won. Gotta save some money for the return trip in April where I will have to stay overnight
