Clients visit Menehune Mac Chocolate Factory

Clients at Kilohana Senior Enrichment Center took a trip to the Menehune Mac Chocolate Factory, one of the largest hand-dipped chocolate factories in the nation! We got a private tour of the factory, learned the history of Menehune Mac, tasted samples galore and even got to make our very own take home box of chocolates. Thank you to Menehune Mac for such a SWEET, SWEET day!

Clients enjoy a visit to Waikiki’s International Marketplace

Kilohana Senior Enrichment Center took a trip to check out the new International Marketplace in Waikiki. Our first stop was at a local boutique, Eden in Love, where clients browsed the racks and were given their very own ALOHA Waikiki pen. We took to the market and window-shopped the morning away and finished by dining at the Eating House 1849 restaurant by Roy Yamaguchi. It was a refreshing and delicious lunch, and a fun-filled day indeed! MAAAHHHAAAALLLLO Waikiki!

Kilohana Visits Waikiki Aquarium

Kilohana Senior Enrichment Center clients took a field trip to the Waikiki Aquarium! The Waikiki Aquarium showcases dozens of coral species and fish, crustaceans, sea horses, sea dragons, pipefish, predators, and ocean life from the Northwestern Hawaiian islands you just can’t see on the main islands. Clients enjoyed the variety of sea life and everything the aquarium had to offer including an outdoor exhibit complete with a Hawaiian monk seal.

Adult Day Cares Jingle and Mingle Bash

Last week, Central Union Church Adult Day Care & Day Health Center and Kilohana Senior Enrichment Center got together to celebrate Christmas – all under one roof in CUC’s Parish Hall!

Clients delighted in wonderful entertainment from Arcadia’s hula halau and ukulele class, enjoyed a delicious turkey and stuffing lunch, and indulged in decadent cupcakes for dessert. Raffle prizes were given out throughout the program, and two special visitors came all the way from the North Pole – Santa Claus and his Chief Elf!

Mahalo to all the hands who played a role in making this Christmas celebration one to remember for years to come!

Kilohana Visits East-West Center at UH Manoa

Kilohana clients visited the East-West Center Gallery located on UH Manoa’s campus. The gallery focuses on exhibitions by the finest artists and performers in the Asia Pacific region. The current exhibit we visited focused on The Art of Indian Dyes and Design. Clients got an up-close look at some of the tools used, the different methods of creation, and the beautiful one-of-a-kind products reflecting Indian culture.

Thank you again to the East-West gallery for such an eye-opening learning experience. We’ve all decided we will never look at scarves the same way again!

Foodie Field Trip to Max’s of Manila

Our Kilohana seniors are learning all about the Philippines this month, and what better way to really get immersed than by trying out some Filipino cuisine!

We traveled across the island to eat at Max’s of Manila Restaurant on Dillingham. Our seniors tasted an array of treats: Fried Chicken, Pancit Bihon, Filipino Bistek and Lumpiang Shanghai to name a few.
