:p I regret most of the content/jokes here. 40% of which are cringe-worthy. This is not a blog that I'd want my nephews/nieces ...or anyone to read, actually. but it's still up here because of sentimental reasons. The blog took a lot of time to build & I just don't have the heart to delete it. If you do find the jokes funny - I'm happy to know that they're entertaining. Otherwise, here's a more "proper" one http://coffee-choc.blogspot.com ...prob not as funny, mainly about chocolates and coffee and food & music

University of Hawaii, Manoa (Honolulu)

UH (Manoa) is one of the must-visit places in Honolulu :-) It's one of the most beautiful uni campuses I've ever seen. To all backpackers - good news! There's free internet access in the "Hamilton Library" of UH (There are 3 libraries at the campus)
Here are some pics of the campus:-)

Hina O Na Lani Sculpture
On the Campus Road side (map) of Campus Center you find a very interesting sculpture. This sculpture is named "Hina O Na Lani", which means Mother of the Universe in Hawaiian. It was created by UH Art Department graduate Gregory Clurman.

"Hina O Na Lani" is a signifier of "fertility"

  1. I came across the sculpture of the three bronze figures on Dole Street by the School of Law with my college freshman at night. As we are from the east coast and were relishing Hawaii's great weather, I was not expecting something so seemingly out of place - these figures dressed for the cold and wet, and looking as if they'd just come through an argument. It's enough to make anyone jay walk!
