Pan Pacific Ballroom Dance Society Christmas Ball Showcase

Got to the Ala Wai Palladium a little after 7 o'clock PM. My sweety and I were invited as guests of Ed and Matilda Felix. The Diamond Head side of the ballroom was jumping with a lot of dancers to the sweet music of Dee Jay Ed Felix. Checked in at the Reception Table with the three lovelies (Louise, Matilda, and Mitzi).  Those sharp eye gals noticed that my Lani wasn't with me and Matilda inquired." Yeah! I'm flying solo tonight".
 The Program started a little before 8 o'clock  The EmCee Roxanne Kaino took to the podium and introduced Pan Pacific President Gene Inoshita who gave a welcome message.

Social dancing continued till the Dance Showcase started about 8:15 o'clock  Roxanne was back at the podium to introduce each of the performers in the showcase. Did a good job, too. And so did Ed playing the music.

First to perform were students of Jacky Lei dancing the Cha Cha/Jive Medley.

Followed by performances by Haleen & Atlas dancing the International Tango, Charlotte & Ed dancing the International Cha Cha, and Jacky & Spring dancing the Quickstep/Viennese Waltz Medley.

You can view the videos of the dance showcase at Facebook Dancers.

A big mahalo to Ed and Matilda Felix for inviting Lani and me as their guests to the Christmas Ball, and also to Roxanne Kaino for sharing her notes of the dance showcase performance with me.

Aloha & Happy Dancing!

Sweet Treats by Kris Grand Opening at Pearlridge Shopping Center

(Left click to zoom in)
Kris not only sells products that she bakes herself (bread pudding, banana cake, butter mochi, etc.) ... she also sells products from other small local bakers.  But, she only carries their best products.  People come from all over the island to buy the products she sells.  Her success and popularity has motivated her to open her very first store location in the uptown section of Pearlridge Shopping Center.  Her grand opening is set for this Saturday, November 2nd.  She has lined up entertainment at the center stage from 10:00A - 4:00P. (Nick Sierra will be entertaining the audience from 10:00A - 12:00P).  

Her store is on street level in the old Jeans Warehouse clothing store.  It's located between the stage area and TJ Maxx.  There will be giveaways all day long.  She will have a table set up next to the stage to sell some of her products, but the public is invited to check out her new store where she'll have her entire selection of products available to buy.
