Hawaii Notes and Pictures

Going to MLA Annual Conferences has been part of my professional activities since 2004. This year like previous years, MLA sparkled lots of excitement and ideas. Most important of all, I gave a presentation entitled "Infusing Information Literacy Skills by Researching 'Never Events' at the conference. Without the financial support from the LISTEN project, I might not have been in the conference.

As you know, I always have lots of pictures from the Conference and pictures about Hawaii.

The best and the outstanding among us

The very exciting thing to do in Hawaii was to go snorkeling at Hanauma Bay.

Swimming with fishes

The most touching event was to watch the Lantern Floating Hawaii on the Memorial Day at the AlA Moana Beach Park.

My first time inside a submarine and saw up-close magic of Hawaii's undersea world.

Hawaii features in ABC Stores that are more than churches.

The Big Island Tour took us to the Black Sand Beach.

Monkey pod trees are everywhere in Hawaii. I've never seen so magnificent banyan trees there.

Walking and swimming along Waikiki Beach felt like in paradise.

I really enjoyed shooting sunset pictures along the beaches.

This is a place worth visiting again! I know I will have a waterproof camera case when I revisit Hawaii some day.
