October 06, 2016

Leading up to the Oct. 16 Hawaiian Springs Hawaiian Classics: Kamaka Ukulele 100th Anniversary Celebration at the Hawaii Theatre, we'll be featuring our favorite songs from performers that will be playing.

Here's Ho'okena with He Wahine U'i:

Literally translated as The Beautiful Wahine, He Wahine U'i is a kolohe song about the love of many different flowers, or sweethearts.

ʻAuhea, ʻauhea wale ʻoe
E ka pua, e ka pua lokelani
A he nani, a he nani no ʻoe
He wahine uʻi

ʻAuhea, ʻauhea wale ʻoe
E ka pua, e ka pua mokihana
Hana aʻe, hana aʻe no wau
Lei hoʻohie

ʻAuhea, ʻauhea wale ʻoe
E ka pua, e ka pua kukui
Kui aʻe, kui aʻe no wau
A lawa kou lei e ka ipo

ʻAuhea, ʻauhea wale ʻoe
E ka pua, e ka pua violeta
Leka mai, leka mai ʻoe iʻau
Auwē ka auwē ʻako

ʻAuhea, ʻauhea wale ʻoe
E ka pua, e ka pua ka `ilima
ʻElima, ʻelima oʻu po
Hoʻi nele aʻe
For you, this is for you
The flower, the roselani flower
Beautiful, you are so beautiful
The beautiful lady

For you, this is for you
The flower, the mokihana flower
I'll make, I'll make a lei
A lei so attractive

For you, this is for you
The flower, the kukui flower
I'll string, I'll string a lei
Until your lei is complete, sweetheart

For you, this is for you
The flower, the violet flower
Stay, you and I must stay together
To pluck (flowers)

For you, this is for you
The flower, the` ilima flower
Five, I had five nights
And left with nothing

A Prince for the People – Remembering Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalaniana'ole

Just like Hawaii itself, there is something very special about the last prince of Hawaii, Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalaniana'ole. The irresistible charm of his as a person is seen in every picture of him and felt in the hearts of many through the written records as if he is actually talking to you. It was his signature smile which gave him his famous nickname “Prince Cupid” throughout his entire life. Combined with his impeccable academic and athletic prowess as well as his charismatic presence and influence of being the only royalty and first native Hawaiian in the U.S. congress, he left a stellar impression everywhere he went. What he is remembered for most is his unparalleled compassion and support throughout his life for his people to regain their pride and strength as Hawaiian. People called the Prince as “Ke Ali`i Maka`ainana” (the Prince of the People). He didn’t become a king after all, but he was the true Ali‘i (chief) who never stopped fighting the battles for the rights of the Hawaiian people.

On the Sunday morning of March 18th, 1866, a powerful fast steamer, the Ajax docked into Honolulu Harbor safely after a 10-day sea voyage from San Francisco. Receiving a cheerful welcome of gliding albatross from up above and a crowd of flying-fish in front of their decks, passengers watched the green valleys and swaying palm trees gradually coming into their views. Church bells tolled in the distance.

Lookout for New Life - Watch Whales from the Makapu‘u Point Lighthouse!

March 06, 2017

Every year, on the first Saturday of January, February and March, those who are allured by the giant humpback whales, gather together on their outposts throughout the islands. Their serious gazes are glued on the glaring sea spanning out its full panoramic view in front of them. Their binoculars move slowly and quietly like an experienced hunter who would never disturb the animal until “the moment” comes. When the moment arrives, a white whiff arises miles away; a pack of humpbacks are here, breaching. Instead of mustering its crews with ropes and tools for attack, they muster their notebooks and pens. They are ‘hunting’ for whales with their eyes only, just counting.
