Bong, I believe you are mistaken. A number of scholars with even more arcane interests than ours have done research on the history of the Cheongsan. It appears that it is derived from the robes worn during the Manchu Dynasty.



Sorry AT,

But a recent Rand Corporation study conducted last week, definatively concluded that whatever Bong says is the absolute truth even if it is factually in error. So there!

Re: cheongsams

My father grew up in Tienstin,China (Army brat in the '30's) and to this day waxes nostalgic for his first pangs of adolescence (aka horniness) at the sight of slender Chinese women in cheongsams, the dress hugging their curves, revealing only the arms (no cleavage) and that mysterious, enticing peek of leg through the slit of the skirt.

It's a wonder I'm not half Chinese. But Dad ultimately went for pure white bread.

He loves the cheongsams I've bought, however!

And no, not in a creepy way, so shut up!

Now that TRT2 is completely done, I hope to begin posting here more often again... at least until the assembly of my Hukilau presentation begins to suck up all of my available Tiki-time!

Well... here's a pic I dug up that will appear in Tiki Road Trip 2 in black and white - thought you all might enjoy the technicolor version.

Same girl (Elithe Aguiar)?, and you all know this Tiki she's posed next to...

OK, I can't believe I didn't see this post when it began. I've met Elithe Aguilar this past year. I'm on the organizing committee of the Miss Hawaii U.S.A. Pageant here, the state preliminary to Miss U.S.A. and Miss Universe. We organized a reunion of some past titleholders and were able to locate Elithe.
She was Miss Kauai in 1964, and 1st runner up to Miss Hawaii for the Miss America system. The next year, she competed and won the title of Miss Hawaii U.S.A. 1965. She then went on to place in the top 15 at the Miss U.S.A. Pageant in Miami Beach.
She has recently written a book about "Ha", the Hawaiian practice of healing using one's breath control. If I knew how to post pictures, I actually have her, myself, and several of the past Miss Hawaii U.S.A.s in a photo.
She's a lovely lady, very gracious, who doesn't take herself or her modeling/pageant past seriously at all and had a wonderful time of it.
I should add if any of you have the "101 Strings in a Hawaiian Paradise" lp from Alshire, I believe that is Elithe on the cover of that as well.

For those interested seeing Elithe "in action", I just finished watching the Brady Bunch episodes where they are in Hawaii (The famous "bad luck tiki" incident) and there are some great shots of Elithe as the hula instructor to the Brady ladies when they are getting lessons by the ocean in front of the Royal Hawaiian Hotel.

Cool! Yet, whenever this or one of the other posts where the above Trader Vic Tiki is mentiond come up again I am full of hope that someone may have found out who carved them.

Here's another picture of Elithe from an Inter-Island Resorts brochure:



Kaiwaza - now that you know how to post photos to TC, would you be able to find and post those pics of you and Elithe from a few years ago?

Nice Sabu,

I am 99.9% sure this is another Miss Kauai postcard. She is hiding behind the frosty-chilly, but that has to be her.

Aloha,

That's from the Trader Vic's in the International Market Place. It's my uncle Mike's photograph circa 1968. From his notes I have, there is no more information.

I agree that DC's photo sure looks like Elithe Aguiar. Trav's... I'm not so sure - but I like it. Unless she's credited inside the brochure. After she was crowned Miss Kauai, her name was often credited on her photos.

Here's the 101 Strings lp photo that Kaiwaza mentioned:


And here's a photo from the cover of "This Week" In Hawaii, from 1967, promoting her hula dancing in the Royal Hawaiian Hotel:
