Hello 2016! January 03, 2016 11:44

Can't believe 2015 has ended and we're now in 2016!  We thank you all the Maori Man Fans who supported us last year.

Being that winter time is usually a slow season for us, we visited a escape room in Dallas, TX and it was sure fun!  What is a escape room you ask?  A escape room is basically a room where you and your friends solve find clues, solve puzzles and get out of the room before the time ends.   Room Escape Wizards located at 9850 Plano Rd #110, Dallas, TX 75238 has 2 themed rooms.  If you're ever in Dallas, be sure to check them out!

Why we should care about our oceans July 26, 2015 08:15

Seas and oceans are an important part of our ecosystem and they have always managed to bring us amazing experiences during our travels. But there’s more to them than just leisure opportunities, in fact they manage to provide us a good balance between CO2 and oxygen, not to mention the fact that they host marine life, which is critical for our diets as well as Earth’s ecosystem balance as a whole.

The marine life is a sanctuary, filled with an astounding number of species that create one of the most diverse and impressive ecosystems in the world. Aside from being our favorite sea food, all of these animals are playing their part in regulating the life cycle of our oceans and seas, so they are a crucial part of our world. This is why we need to work hard in order to protect them and make sure that we nurture them the right way, otherwise the results might not be as we expect.

The interesting thing about marine life is despite knowing it’s in danger, mankind doesn’t really manage to do anything about it, instead we are continually destroying them and the ecosystem as a whole via oil leaks and a wide range of other problems. However, we need to act now if we want to protect our marine life, and here you can find the best ways to do that!

How to protect marine life?

First, we need to avoid eating so much fish. Finding other alternatives is a good idea if we want to protect the environment and marine life as well. If you do want fish or seafood, make sure that you find some from sustainable resources, as this brings in a much better set of results, and you will definitely appreciate every moment.

Don’t throw plastic or anything harmful into the oceans, because this will directly impact the marine life. The marine debris will just stay afloat and it won’t discompose, which means that it will be a toxic threat to the whole marine life. You need to find and use only reusable bags and limit the plastic use the best way you can, otherwise the wonderful animals will have to suffer due to us.

Of course, we need to lessen the carbon footprint. If we do that, we will be able to encourage the marine life to stay healthy and at the same time we will reduce global warming and other similar issues that mankind does seem to suffer from. Moreover, energy efficiency should also be our main concern, due to the same reason you can find here.

We need to act together and clean up the environment while also lowering the fish and seafood consumption. Think about the marine life responsibly and admire these one of a kind creatures, as they help our planet exist. If we don’t do this, we will simply doom our planet, and that’s something we want to avoid at all times!


The Meaning of Hawaiian Symbols June 15, 2015 09:21

Having Hawaiian jewelry can bring you an astounding experience, but alongside its looks, this also brings you numerous symbols and meanings which have been passed from one generation to another. Not only that, but each symbol does provide its own sense of energy as well, so you have to try and understand each one before actually wearing it.

Makau – Fish Hook Pendant

This symbol is a synonym of a connection between us and the ocean. The Makau on its own is very distinct, appealing pendant that symbolizes energy and it allows you to maintain the tradition of the Aloha spirit alive. Also, this piece also signifies prosperity, strength and it’s also known to bring in good luck. The pendant on its own can be created out of jade, bone or wood.

Rainbow

A symbol with multiple meanings in this culture, the rainbow is a representative of transformation and it represents a sense of connectivity with the spirits as well as the upper world. As meaning, it brings a sense of abundance and better belief, while also providing the people who wear it with a way to reach the heavens.

Hawaiian Flowers

These flowers are a sign of beauty and it’s a type of jewelry usually worn by women. There are multiple exotic flowers depicted in this regard, with the Bird of Paradise being one of the prime examples. The Hawaiian term for flowers means magnificence and joy, exactly what you get with the Hawaiian jewelry. Not only that, but here you can also find the orchids, which are a symbol of beauty and refinement!

Green Sea Turtle

Turtle jewelry is a symbol of endurance, luck as well as long life. In the Hawaiian culture this also brings in the presence of a guardian spirit known as Aumakua. They can provide you with guidance and luck, so having such a piece can bring you a lot of benefits, which is really good to say the least.

The Guardian Spirits
These particular spirits come in a natural as well as animal form. Natives of this region usually tattoo these spirit symbols on their body for protection, with the most popular ones being the owl, shark and gecko. When you wear such a jewelry piece you think about protection and wisdom, but usually the meaning differs based on the spirit you choose.

Circles

These circles can appear in many situations, but they are very significant to the local culture because they signify a durable and long life. They are interconnecting planets and stars, but at the same time they bring a sense of purity and a new life as a whole.

As you can see, the Hawaiian jewelry is mostly based on symbols and most models are connected with the spirit world, which imbues them with a lot of energy and appeal. If you want some astounding jewelry that not only looks great but which has a lot of interesting meanings, then this is definitely what you are looking for!
