I came back from Hawaii a month ago and I’m still keeping my Aloha spirit in me. I was on Maui and Oahu for 6 days! My main plan was to only relax doing yoga retreat at Lumeria with my favorite instructor Lisa Danylchuk.
She also worked with me on one of the cancer survivor photo shoots with Erica Yee.
The yoga retreat center, Lumeria was gorgeous! I loved the vibe and the architecture design. People are super duper x5 nice and sweet! I was like in the dream being in the nature, practicing yoga, dipping in jaccouzi, swimming in the pool and eating organic delicious food everyday. I was also working on my underwater images and it was my dream office to work at!
I brought my camera gear to capture Lisa’s amazing yoga poses and the cool yogoni gang we spent 5days with! They all loved the experience and I was happy to work with them.
While I was in Maui, I made a decision to meet at least one Hawaiian cancer survivor for an underwater healer photo shoot. I contacted my friend Kimi Werner and she introduced me to Amber Noilani who survived from thyroid cancer when she was 20 years old. I made a spontaneous decision to go to there for 6 hrs to meet them. Due to the Friday traffic, we got to the pool late and we had only 30-40 min. in the water. But I’ve got to capture Amber’s beautiful images and the moment of Amber and Kimi together! They have the true Hawaiian warm hearted and spirits! I was so happy to meet both of them!!
I left Oahu and came back to Maui.
Saturday was our last day for yoga retreat 🙁 We said good bye to each other and my Maui friend, Nina came by to hang out at the pool for while 🙂
We went back to her and her hubby, Stephan’s sweet home for a little bit and we took off for their friend’s BBQ!
Fish was amazing!
I had the Sunday free so Nina and I were at the big beach for hours catching up.
Last minute vitamin D overdose and uv attack for sure. So nice to catch up with my gal who inspired me to have my own business!
My last night was full of laughter with delicious food and some sexy drinks! I like iichoko, shochu!
I LOVE their kitty, Olive! She acts like a puppy…
and doesn’t like to play like a cat
Monday before we left for the airport. I begged to go to Foodland, my dream home.
I had to get these snacks!
I already miss my aloha friends, ocean and poke!! Hawaii, come get me!!
Mahalo Nui! 🙂
