Affordable Housing On Maui

Apr. 3, 2008 (4451 views)

Affordable Homes. It has become a controversial term these days. People from all walks of life have different interpretations and attitudes on it. One only has to mention “affordable homes” in a conversation and you’ll hear a tremendous amount of opinions and point of views, some are very emphatic, and some are apathetic. I am quite familiar with the issues of Affordable Homes on Maui because I work with a developer/builder who is dedicated to building affordable homes for the...

Mar. 1, 2008 (5465 views)

I was looking for the Komoda T Store and Bakery listing to give a review, and it's not listed on  So I decided to dedicate this blog posting to the wonders of this upcountry bakery.First I have to say I miss Dunkin Donuts.  I mean I really, really miss Dunkin Donuts.  If there's anyone on the mainland reading this, and you're close to a Dunkin Donuts, send me an e-mail - I may be willing to do a trade if you can overnight me a few cinnamon cake donuts.My only...

Living in Paradise

Feb. 27, 2008 (4134 views)

A friend on the mainland thinks that I spend all day on the beach, sitting under a palm tree drinking coconut juice.  But the reality of living on Maui is much more challenging, from the high cost of living (gas is already $4.00 a gallon here), to education, to navigating the cultural barriers and fluctuating job market.But just when I think about moving back to the Bay Area, I remember the Safeway that I used to go to.  There were always several people outside the sliding glass...

Saturday February 9, some co-worker and friends (Ron, Ben, Byron and Shannon) and I, participated in the Run For The Whales Fun Run. We did the 5K run and it was fun! It was a last minute decision for me. And knowing that we would be staying up late the previous night because of The Music Man, I was afraid I would...

Dating on the island

Jan. 29, 2008 (4961 views)

For us locals, it can be tough finding other NEW locals to hang out with.  It's been a frustration of mine.  Probably the best thing to do is hang out where the tourists do, but that can also be a pain since people on vacation tend to live it up while they're here without any intension of keeping in touch.  I've tried going out to clubs and the bar scene, but it's hit or miss.  I've done every activitiy you can do on the Island.  Zip lining, biking, helicopter tours,...
