eh sista Laney, we gon have som pupu's? I gon try bring some Filipino grindz. No promises....my momz lazy somtimes. If someone(pop) could bring some rice.....HO dat would be sweet!! I can't eat and not eat rice....sorry, you know localz gotta have rice. we eat dat stuff 3 times a day. "AND YOU KNOW THIS MANNNNN!!"(chris tucker)....you know, da cigaweed braddah.



Laney, one way we serve peopo on da islands during get togeddaz is we wen serve da food on banana leafs or tea leafs....but no mo tea leaves mainland so use banana. You can put dem on your table top as da table cloth. Just go to your neigbors hale or friends, and cut about 4 banana leafz off der plant and rince wit watta and go place dem on da table, den you gon put all da food right on da leaves, no need fo tapawer(u know da kine plastic bowls). looks mo traditional. cut some leaves into square pieces and peopo can put da pupus right onto there own leafs instead of paper plates ya. save you some money plus looks mo betta.

if you eva BBQ some fish in da near future, try fo rap'em in banana leaf and trow'em straight on da grill...steams great or leave'em untill da leaf is burnt and you eat parts of da crumbled burnt leaf with da meat...dats ONO. You have to use milk fish though and dat get choke bones....so neva mind.

k see ya peeps in a week.

Gecko,

You can still get ti leaves here at the downtown flower market in downtown Los Angeles. I always go at 6:00am on the morning I'm having a big cocktail party and get plenty of ti leaves to serve pupus on. There are big warehouses full of flower sellers and I go first to the tropical flower area and buy ginger flowers, birds of paradise, and asian lillies to decorate the house with, orchids to put on the drinks, and stacks of ti leaves to serve food on. Prices are cheap too.

I'm still not sure if Tikibelle and I will be able to make the party at Laney's, but if we do, I'll pick up some ti leaves and orchids for you.

We'll see you for sure at Tiki Ti's on the 18th.

Sabu

eh tanks Sabu for clearin dat up. I neva knew ti leaves (Ti pernounced tea) were on da mainland. I put "tea leaf" so if someone seen it posted they could go to da store and ask fo "tea leaves" and not "tie leaves". Good you know your plants to Sabu.

I'll see ya on da 18th if not at Laneys braddah.

aloha

Gecko, I don't have anything in particular in mind but I must have something you have made. A tiki would be good......or your shirt.

SCD,
how'd ya know cuz! Yes dat tiki is da one dat might be at "da show".
That all depends on tonight though..... Da wahine dat i decorate her shows "Tiki Lounge five-o" called me a couple of days ago to go over to da KING of exotica Mr Martin Dennys condo tonight. He want's to purchase one of my tiki's....so I will be bringing dat one to his house tonight among a few others. If he takes dat one den I gon make anudda to bring wit me to da mainland.

If he dosen't take dat one I gon take da tiki to Waikiki Saturday morning and take some pics of it in front of Diamond Head jus to show dis tiki is an original gecko coconut trunk tiki. Dat will be da so called signed certificate of authenticity. What betta den to have a pic of your tiki in front of diamond head to show dis bugga is from da islands. If Mr Denny dosen't buy it tonight I gon take a pic of da tiki beside Mr Denny and I'll sign it and give a copy to da new owner. I just want someone to be very happy with there new Gecko tiki plus get da bonus pic on da side...kinda like da cherry on da cake. Dat pic will make more collectible in da future.
To tell you now, dis tiki will be for sell at da show if Martin Denny passes it up tonight. $500 will be da firm price for dis. It's going to be a very special tiki for a long long time. Especially if da new owner keeps da picture of Martin Denny beside da tiki with da tiki. So I can't wait to meet da new owner at da show.....IFFFF Mr Denny dosen't buy it tonight.

Da rest of da tikis I carve while I'm there will have "callifornia" carved in da back.

I tink dat gon make my Hawaii carvings mo collectible in da future because you will have to pay for shipping and those will be da harder to get ones because peopo don't like to fork out da shipping charges.

mahalo

Just a quick update for anyone heading over here Sat. Time 5-6ish (some may be later)We will be BBQing your basic burgers/dogs etc. Summer BBQ, hopefully summer weather. I am asking people to bring drinks/booze. If you would like to bring kids, that's fine. My son (Nick,8) will be here as well as video games. If they become a problem, we can always feed them to my dogs!
I hope I have places for you all to sit! My son and I have had a long week (end of school parties/awards, etc.)and I work Fri night/Sat morning so I'm not sure if We'll be up for Da Show
Besides, I've been doing my best to clean up around here and realized I have way too much crap and too many lamps! (did I just say that?) I'm looking forward to relaxing, drinking, meeting some new TCers and seeing all the regulars. See ya Sat, Laney

Thank you Laney for sharing your fabulously decorated home with us and feeding us as well.

I was great seeing all you TC folk again and some of you for the first time. Looking forward to our next gathering whenever it might be.

Thanks everyone for coming. The pool was too cold for swimming (Al and Shelley rock), I was ready for a dip earlier in the day so next time we do this it'll have to be a day thing. There's nothing better than drinking in the afternoon sun floatin' around the pool.
Thanks for the sweet lamp Al and Shelley. I will hang it tomorrow and post some pics.
Bongofury, were you the one who brought the chicken sauce? I'm eating the left over chicken now, I guess people went with burgers/dogs. That sauce is great! I don't like spicy stuff but this has just the perfect bit of kick. Cory loved it too and wants to know where to get it. Cory, if you read this (he lurks) a million thanks for all your help!
Thanks again everyone I had a blast! I hope there aren't too many pics of no make-up strait flat haired, Laney. Oh well I can use them as a before on the vintage hair thread in beyond tiki.

Thanks for the great hospitality Laney. If it is the Caravelle Sweet Chili Sauce we brought that was us. My mom bought a bunch at an Asian foods market somewhere out by Upland. It's kinda spicy but sweet (like you). Great for dippin won tons an stuff. Your house ROCKS! Great tropical yard, tons of cool lamps, and all that Witco. It was great to meet everyone. Mrs. Fury (1 r Baxdog) and I had a great time and hope to see everyone again but we have a crazy schedule this summer. Thanks for the BBQ Corey......Gecko's video of Martin Denny was a treat....Hope you liked the cd Chikitiki...............Aloha

Laney, your place was soo cool. The lamps provide just the right amount of colorful mood-glow. Simply dreamy. Your numerous desirable tiki furnishings and glassware made me envious, not to mention the just-right pool ambiance. Lots of palms and mystery. Thanks for hosting this party! P.S. I liked the fern embellished lamp over the dining table.
