サンホセ村のどこからでも見ることができるベルタワーはまさに村のシンボル。戦争や長い時間の経過の傷みや傾きを住民が修理して今もオリジナルのままに大切に保存され、17世紀末のスペイン統治時代の面影を今に残しています。

1 of the many sets for the 500m Sprints today. Key points are working on blending and being on the same power band. Working on technique and striving to be better everyday. Let's get it.

Sundays are for Sisters!👭👭👭
.
Except us . . .
.
Sundays (for the guys) are golf days⛳ so our Sundays are for sleeping! 🤪
Glad to have spent this past Sunday w/ my SILs, so can I really quickly share this photo to show them off?! 🤗
.
We are all different beings from different walks of life but lookie here:
✔ our hairs are parted in the same direction 👱‍♀️👩👩
✔ our eyes are in perfect condition 👓🤭
✔ & fun fact: our height order is equivalent to that of our partners (Neng - shortest, me - just right 😂 kidding middle, Imma - tallest).
.
.
P.S. Not in photo but definitely missed are our other SIL Rose Marie & Izumy!👭
.
These babes are my WCW! 😘

Rarely a field-day goes by without watching an åga perform some impressive feat. It's possible I am just easily impressed, but I think it is much more likely that these are genuinely impressive birds. Here, one of the captive-reared birds that was released last fall hammers at and breaks into a dead branch, exposing an ant nest. Ant larvae are one of the most common food items we see young åga eat. Sometimes, in order to break open the wood, birds will have to hang upside down or in other odd positions to access the branch. Sometimes they will use their bodyweight to fly or jump onto a perch, breaking it apart upon impact (although this could happen accidentally as well).⁣⠀
.⁣⠀
Older åga eat mostly adult insects and geckos, which can also be difficult to find or catch; however, Perhaps most impressive of all is the fact that åga will find and eat terrestrial hermit crabs that are living inside shells that once belonged to an introduced land snail. The åga know that they can--with some effort--use their bills to break apart the snail shell to expose the hermit crab's abdomen (hermit crabs living in a native sea snail shell, on the other hand, are too difficult to open). It requires a lot of practice, and we think the åga's long developmental period facilitates the acquisition of this skill. Young birds just simply aren't very good at it and it's a risky process: when it comes to eating anything with a big claw, toes and bills may be at risk!

Common purslane (Portulaca oleracea). A very edible plant found throughout the world. It is eaten in various countries and cam be used in salads, cooked like spinach, and because of its slight viscosity it can be cooked in soups and stews. The plant is high in omega 3 fatty acids and a good source of vitamins.

As we approach National Infant Immunization Week, we at the Immunization Program, encourage you to watch the "How Vaccines Work" series created by the CDC. This series may answer some questions and alleviate any concern that you may have about your child and vaccines. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
It is very important to understand that staying on track with your child's vaccines plays a crucial part in developing their immune system, which recognizes and fights off vaccine-preventable communicable diseases. If your child so happens to fall off track, our clinic has implemented a "Catch Up" schedule that will bring your child up to date with their vaccinations⁣⁣
⁣
Watch the series here:⁣

There are key people behind the scenes critical for many different processes that make an organization work. When everybody is working together towards a common goal synergy is developed and solutions are implemented.

Last night's dinner. Grilled ribs, asparagus and deviled eggs. 
I seasoned the ribs with a glaze made from golden monk fruit sweetener (that I packed in my luggage), garlic salt, pep and paprika and avocado oil. I'm waiting for my new skillet top grill to arrive and our new house does not have an oven. So my cooking method options include a small grill and a two burner propane stove top! I'm just embracing it and working with what I've got! And what I've got is deliciousness!

Oleander (Nerium oleander) is a widely grown garden plant known for its bright flowers and it's superficial resemblance to an olive plant. They are so widely spread that the origin of the plant is unknown but it is suspected to be either from South East Asia. The whole plant is poisonous and is known to be one of the most toxic of all garden plants. It is currently the only species within the genus Nerium.

F o r e v e r K i n d a T h i n g
.
Honestly felt all sorts of cuteness on Easter - even though I was suffering from the evening before 😅 I felt faaab in this dress❣
.
And let me just say that we don't compliment ourselves enough.
.
When someone compliments the dress / shoes / purse / being - the reaction is immediately something like "it's old / I borrowed it / I need to lose weight..." blah blah blah!
.
That's gotta end. 
We were born to thrive!! 🌴🌺🌿
.
Like, being egocentric or conceited is one thing - that is not what I'm saying we should be. What I'm saying is to accept the compliments that come your way and do things that can allow you to truly blossom into your full and fabulous self! Stop self sabotaging, stop hiding in the background and get to the front, woman!
.
You are worth it! 💗
.
I'm definitely going to put in some sweat today because ya girl is definitely loving where she's at. Like seriously, this could be a forever kinda thing! 😉
.
Join me for today's sweat sesh! It's Day 5 😖 Which means its CARDIO! Which is also HARDIO!

Developed by Lee Sang-Soo in 1983, MacKan art is a relatively new interpretation of traditional straw craft. Deriving its name from the humble barley stalk, MacKan is an intricate multi-step process that produces beautiful, lustrous mosaic images that are monotone, but not exactly.

Award winning artist Lee Eun-Ji, or @lezcivil as she goes by here, has been creating her works of art for five years now. She was taught by the inventor himself, and has been residing in Saipan temporarily making and selling her art before returning to Korea. We sat down at her fathers home in Papago for a tutorial, and even some hands on experience!

To begin, dried stalks of barley approximately 5” long are slowly carefully split open with a pointed wooden dowel not unlike a knitting needle. The split must be perfectly straight or the stalk is ruined. It is then rubbed lengthwise and on a slight angle to flatten it somewhat into a strip.

Next, the strips are placed side by side with the iridescent side up on a sheet of adhesive paper. There must be no space between the strips, not even the thickness of a hair, or it will ruin the illusion of a seamless shiny surface. The uneven ends are cut off, and a heavy rolling pin is used to remove any air bubbles between the barley strips and the paper.

A template of numbered shapes is applied to the back of the sheet, and pieces are cut out using a razor- taking care to align the grain of the barley stalk attractively between all the pieces. Often, the grain is aligned in such a way as to compliment the original subject as it would appear in nature; for a leaf, or the hair of an animal for example.

Finally, tracing paper is used to map out the design on the backing board. The waxpaper is removed from the back of the pieces and they are carefully placed with tweezers into their correct position. Once completed, varnish or wax may be applied to the finished product.

MacKan can be scaled up or down in complexity. Smaller pieces can be made into something as simple as a cell phone decoration, while larger pieces can take weeks or months to complete and be several feet wide.

1500M Outrigger V6 Practice on a 250M Course. I Dont think we measured the distance right for practice today. Times were almost 45-55 second differences of last practice. As you can see we are doing lots of turns lol.

I'm still never leaving Saipan.

I'd be lying if I said I haven't teared up looking at these pictures and videos. It's like a bad case of deja vu. I can't stop looking at them and feeling helpless. Nearly everything is gone. But I'm still not leaving. 
People ask me all of the time when I will move back to the mainland. We may not have much left here but, even now when I'm asked that question all I can do is laugh and say "never." I can't even give them a full answer with a long list of reasons, I just laugh.

I don't need to live somewhere with the fastest wifi. I don't need to have my meal ready within 5-7 minutes every time I go out to eat. I don't need big shopping malls, or 5-minute oil changes or drive-thru pharmacies or any of the other conveniences of the USA mainland. Those things are great and I miss them on occasion but, I don't NEED them.

I need Saipan. I need this island. I need these people. Saipan has made me a more patient, understanding and all-around better person. It's made me a father and, soon, a husband. And I would rather die here than give up on this place because I know this island and these people would never give up on me. 
So, for the second time in three years, we'll start over.

Because I'm still never leaving Saipan. 🇲🇵❤ #saipan #hafaadai #islandlife #islandspirit #supertyphoonyutu #supertyphoon #typhoonyutu #yutu #marianas #cnmi #recovery

Words can't describe the beauty of Saipan. Not pictured: hordes of Chinese and Korean tourists. Nbd though bc they all stay in the designated areas, so all you gotta do is walk a few minutes for seclusion. 🏝🇲🇵🇺🇸💚👙 #Saipan #managahaisland #usa #CNMI #unemployedlife #birthdayweek #afk #solotraveller

By now, you've probably seen us use the phrase "Guam/FSM/CNMI (etc.) --> Worldwide". What does that even mean? For us, it represents our undying love for travel and excitement, the burning need to see the world and explore. It represents the adventurous and unbreakable Islander spirit that is embedded in us all, no matter where we go or what we  do. Its something we all have in common. We scroll down our feed  and see so many of you out and about, traveling, swimming, snorkeling, hiking, filming, skydiving, opening new businesses, grinding, seeing new things, trying new things. We see you living out adventures, capitalizing on every single second. That's what that phrase represents. An appreciation for the undying "adventure culture" that lives inside us all.

The "Protect the Culture" Backpack series was made specifically for...you. It was made so that wherever you go, from home -> worldwide, you can carry all your gear while still representing and protecting the unbreakable Pacific Islander culture. Enjoy your adventures ahead, fam. (Releases 12.1.18 online)
