Happy Monday afternoon, peeps! I just got home and it looks like it’s about to storm … the skies are filled with dark clouds and the air is very still. I came home early because we’re starting to rehearse for our upcoming Japan tour at the end of next month. We’re also working on our ManoaDNA – Discover Aloha! radio show program too, so it’ll be a busy evening! I just had a tuna Subway sandwich so I’m good to go!
Last night we went to GS Karaoke in Waikiki for a farewell/birthday party for our friend Yutaka who returns to Japan on Wednesday. We (Carla and my sister, Pat) were joined by Bobby Modero (of the band, Maunalua) and his wife, Pua, along with Yutaka’s pals Misa, Mina, and Miwa. I’m sure a lot of you are familiar with the very refined, feminine side of Japanese women, but give them a karaoke mic and WATCH OUT! Hey guys .. if you want to find out the real personality of that girl you’ve been dating recently, take her to a karaoke bar – believe me, you will be amazed! Before my very eyes, these quiet, polite young ladies were transformed into these wild, dancing wahine that would put the even the best rock ‘n rollers to shame! And boy, can these girls sing!! Anyway, we all had a great time and I want to thank everyone for making it a very fun evening!
