There have been a few questions regarding some of my latest posts so I thought I’d take this opportunity to answer them.
What is Hurricane Popcorn? Hurricane Popcorn originated in Hawaii and consists of buttered popcorn with arare (rice crackers) & furikaki (seaweed). Yes, I realize it may not sound appetizing but once you try it, you’ll love it!
What are the current gas prices in Hawaii? On Oahu it’s $3.73 & $4.21 on Maui. Yikes! And yes, since we live on an island, you may be wondering just how far we can really drive. I think it’s more the issue of sitting in traffic rather than the distance of the commute. For example, when I take Girlie Girl to piano class, I spend a total of 2 hours in traffic for a 30 minute class. *sigh*
In regards to First Class Baby, how did the crew feel about the situation? A majority of the flight attendants, including myself, felt that babies should be allowed to sit anywhere on the plane. They have the same rights as anyone else and just because you pay more for your ticket, it doesn’t give you the right to dictate who sits near you.
To Quit or Not to Quit: We decided to let Girlie Girl stop taking her Hip Hop class even though she was the one who begged us to let her join in the first place. Money is not an issue since tuition is paid monthly, however, the next time she decides to participate in an activity it’s with the understanding that it comes with a 1-year commitment.
Thank you for all your advice and opinions!
