I'm an island gal. Born and raised in Sri Lanka, another beautiful island like Hawaii. I came to Hawaii to pursue my graduate studies and never left. I live in Kailua with my husband and two sons. I've worked in education most of my life; first, as an instructor in Journalism at HPU and Chaminade, then as a director of an RCUH/DOE nonprofit focused on science education, and most recently as an editor/photographer at Punahou School. I'm currently a full-time mom and photographer.
There is no place like it. Smiling people, the cultures, the biodiversity, trade winds, the ocean, the mountains ... the list is endless.
Photography, kayaking, boating, painting, travel.
For the past couple of years, my friends have played secret santa and purchased one gift instead of several. We were able to cut down on wrapping paper, cards and gifts. This year, we will take it a step further and send online cards, use recycled gift bags and purchase an eco-friendly Secret Santa...
Today, we ate the first tomatoes and arugula from our garden. They tasted so good! My son has put a lot of corn seeds in the ground and I'm afraid that my yard will turn into a cornfield with all the rain that we've been having!
