Friday ~ We arrive at Kahului Aiport around 7.30pm to find many tourists stranded and no where to go due to the fire as the highway and roads heading into and out of Lahaina have been closed. Before heading home, we stop by Cupies Drive-In to grab dinner; I ordered the Kalbi plate while R had the cheeseburger with fries. After dinner...we sit around in the living room to chit-chat and play with Tiger the cat.

Saturday ~ After a half-hour wait (good thing I made the reservations online) and finally getting our rental car from Alamo, we're drive away for our Day One picturesque crusade through Kihei, Wailuku and Kahului. Below are some of the places we stop by to see and take pictures...

MCGREGOR POINT LOOKOUT ~ This area is frequented by whales and it is one of the best locations for whale spotting during the months of December through May. Beautiful & gorgeous panaromic views of the ocean.

FIRE ON WEST MAUI MOUNTAIN ~ Driving towards McGregor Point, we were able see the Maui firefighters very busy at work trying to water down what's left burning on the slopes above Maalaea. We also watch how each helicopter fly towards to the ocean to collect water and then fly back to the burning hillside. The firefighters really had their work cut out for them!

THE SHOPS AT WAILEA ~ Strolling through "Hawaii's most beautiful shopping center"

ALEXANDER & BALDWIN SUGAR MUSEUM ~ It is housed in a 1902 former mill superintendent's residence, across the way from the factory which has been producing sugar since 1902. Did you know that Maui was born of the sugar industry? It's true...Maui was once almost entirely covered with cane fields. By 1932 Maui was kicking out over a million tons of sugar!

MAUI MALL ~ A must stop to the most popular shop ~ Tasaka Guri-Guri for a double scoop of mix strawberry and pineapple guri-guri (yum and so refreshing on a HOT day)! Guri-guri is a treat that's a hybrid, a cross between sherbert and ice cream. You'll also find Longs Drug, Fun Factory, Maui Mall 12 Megaplex, IHOP and more stores.
We ended the night with dinner at Tokyo Tei with Ryan's parents, and malasadas as desserts after dnner from Homemade Bakery. I ordered their Teishoku C which comes with miso fish, tonkatsu and sashimi while Ryan had Teishoku B that came with teriyaki steak, shrimp & vegetable tempura and sashimi. Yummy!

"So you want to know me? Romantic and logical ~ Loyal and always true ~ Funloving crazy and very quiet when needed ~ Sensible and down to earth...to sum it up, I guess I'm pretty much a "nice girl", hopefully in a good way, who's also a bit of a geek"

Here I am as perfect as I'm ever going to be. You'll see, love me for me. Stick around, I'm not the kind of girl you wanna leave. You'll see, love me for me.
