APARTM3NT 2 Year Anniversary Annual Black on Black Party 07.30.11


TO my BEST FRIENDS. Aquariuses, Libra’s and other Gemini’s ( and a few fire signs )


What would we do without friends when we break up with our boyfriends, or lose our job, or get in a fight with our other friends?   When we have dumb hoe girlfriends who sleep with our exes? Or guys that end up being jerks and standing you up for the evening? Having good friends is what keeps me going.  I have all of them to thank for everything!

KELLY!  A Leo.  From the NS.  Out in Hollywood doing the actress/modeling thing. I  had to repost this blog because I forgot her! LOL! I MISS HER SO MUCH!

Jay

My Aquariuan friend, even from prison, you are still in my life every day, always listening to my problems, and give giving me sound advice. I hope I cheer up your day as well.  One of my closest friends in Hawaii (even though your on the E.C. right now) you knucklehead!

Ashley

My baby sis. My opposite Gemini.  She’s 24, going on 42. Living in Santa Monica.  A fellow Gemini like myself. How would I describe you in 3 words? Mysterious. Sarcastic. Free.

M Lo

My friends call him “Rocker Dude”. A Sagittarius to the max.  FIRE ! He lives in Hollywood.  He’s in a rock band, 9 Electric. Thanx for listening to me bitch about boy problems, even though I know sometimes you’re not listening anyways. LOL! He was raised Mormon, just like me. ;/ He doesn’t take any bullshit, and he’s a good friend that you can expect honesty from.  He’s a hopeless romantic ladies. Nobody know’s me better than Mike.

Noah

Punk ASS!  Another Aquarius, my former personal trainer.  Noah you helped me through some dark times.

Raquel

My Libra Bonita chica in 702.  We tear it up at XS!  I miss you!

Kent

the best roommate in the world!  He has a beautiful voice!  Loves to sing Karaoke.  A Pisces and hopeless romantic. ;D

Carol

Why are all my friends Libra’s and Aquariuses?  Another Aquarius.  My Chilean chica! ❤ u!

Grace

Another Libra. Another “Jack Mormon”. Another good friend. A wine and art connoisseur, also a realtor. She won the free breast implants @ my MIss-Candy.com website-release party at Skyline. And believe me, she needed them! ;D Always protective of me. Intelligent, beautiful, tasteful and always classy. But still has the “rugged Wailua girl” in her.

Na Ya

One of my rugged Waianae girls. But you would never know in this pic. 😉  Hottie!

Portia

I’ve known this girl since highschool, and she amazes me with her free flowing skills. I  know this girl is down and has my back! Crazy Leo.  I get along with fire signs too.  Back in the juvey hall lock down days and throwing up in the bushes at Rocky Point cuz we’re too fucked up.

Cory

ANOTHER AQUARIUS! One of my new friends.  SHe’s a cool ass chick! Sexy as hell!  Down to party!  Sexy pic mama. ;D

Erin Moore.

One of my new friends as well.  She is a crazy party girl like ME!   A Libra also. 😉

Denise

ANOTHER LIBRA.  One of my other new friends.  I met her at Morimoto’s Social Brunch 2 months ago, and she has proven to be a cool ass chick, with Samoan feet. ;D

Juan-Cho

CRAZY GEMINI!  My gym buddy, graphic designer, web guy, lover, friend, gym buddy,  baby sitter, dish washer… is there anything this Mexican (I mean Columbian) can’t do!?!?  JUST KIDDING!  I LOVE YOU JUAN CHO!  I took this picture at my pool in Vegas btw… Isn’t it fabulous? 😀

“Chili Tequila”

ANOTHER GEMINI. My fellow classmate at IADT, babysitter, and volleyball team mate, watch out for Phil, he’s gonna be a famous fashion designer, this kid got MAD SKILLS!!!!

Johnny Lopez

One of my oldest friends, a Cancer, loves to surf, a sioux chef @ Nicks Ficks Market in Maui.Best friend you could ever ask for.  He’ll yell at you when you’re wrong.  He’ll stand up for you and yell at his friends when they are wrong.  Positive vibes whenever we hang out.  If I gotta get away, going to Maui for some R&R is always nice.  I love you Johnny!  And I love your cooking too. ;D

Munch @ Apartm3nt


Some friends and myself had dinner at Aparm3nt last Thursday for the once a month tasting menu, “Munch.”  It was so oishi, I can’t wait to see the menu for the next “Munch!”
Oxtail mandoo, with leeks and long rice, accompanied by house made Kimchee.
Fresh mandoo is one of my favorites, and filled with a tender oxtail, it was different and original.
Spiced!
TY KU Soju <> Kim Chee <> Sriracha <> Clamato <> Fresh Ginger <> Martini

“Spiced!” reminded me of a soju bloody mary.  The fresh ginger is charred and then strained through the drink, giving it a light ginger flavor.  He brought around extra Ty Ku for the drinkers that wanted a little more kick with their drinks. ;D

2nd – Japan, Shochu
Steamed Seabass with enringi mushrooms, red bell peppers over brussell sprouts sauteed in a sweet sake soy sauce and rice.
The Seabass was a very large portion.  Tender and flavored delicately.  I have never liked mushrooms up until recentl, and am now discovering all the different flavors.  The enringi mushrooms definitely have a delicately complimenting flavor as well.  As for the brussell sprouts, they are usually bitter, and these have a slight sweetness to them. Delicious!
Tiger’s Claw
Komasa Migaki Shochu <> Yuzu <> Palm Sugar <> Hibiscus <> Tiger’s Claw Tincture

In the picture you miss the light pink color, almost like pink lemonade.  The sugar rimmed glass and sweet cocktail was perfect prior to the sea bass.   I started stealing my friend, Jim’s drink, because it was so good!

Intermesso: Shitake miso soup & house made pickles
I wanted to maintain tradition. this is usually a dish served at the end of a Japanese meal but it is almost universal in asian cuisine.

A traditional “Intermesso.”  Pickles and miso soup.  A light miso, not too salty, not too hearty, but a perfect dish after the main dish.

3rd – China, Shaoju
Lai Yut – “Beautiful Moon” tarts. These will be both sweet and savory, one style contaning lychee and the other containing nuts
.
They only brought out one, with lychee, garnished with lime.  It was a light, sweet desert for the palate after the other 2 dishes.
Orient Express

Han Soju <> Espresso <> Vanilla <> Roasted Chili Peppers

The final drink was a sweet coffee with a vanilla and slight chili pepper flavor.  It was my favorite desert drink that I have ever had!  I especially loved the light chili pepper after taste.  However I think that the two paired together was a poor choice.  The sweetness of the tart killed the sweetness in the drink making it bitter.  But it is definitely a drink I’d enjoy over and over gain.

I think it’s important that they emphasize that the event starts at 6:30 pm prompt.  I know it’s always hard to get a group of people together at a certain time.  I was confused that there was presentation.  I was under the impression that it was just dinner, so I was half an hour a late, and so was every body else.  It was entertaining for the chef and mixologist to come out and explain their dishes and drinks.

Way worth the $45!  It’s like $8 a dish, and $7 a drink.

* * * * 4 Stars * * * *

Next month’s drink theme: Whiskey

Hope to see you there next month.

Kristie Manning: Thought I’d interview myself. LOL! The best/worst photographers in Hawaii


How did I get started modeling?

Well actually I always was told I was beautiful and should model, and I always wanted to do it, but I think I just procrastinated.  I was always very skinnny, (not anymore ;p) and could eat whatever I wanted and not worry about my weight.  When I was 17 I was approached by a tourist in Waikiki by Larry Silva (Ohio), an amateur photographer.  Being my first time ever shooting I had a few bikinis and we went to a great spot in Diamond Head, a little topless beach I like to tan at that isn’t very crowded.  Only a few surfers paddle out there.  I wish I could find the pictures from the shoot.  In my favorite pictures, I wore an aqua Brazilian bikini that flattered my body type well.  The pictures were very amateur, but they were beautiful.  I was so happy with them.  My natural talent showed through, and by many photographers I have been complimented  on the expression I show through my eyes.  Especially in these first sets of photos could you see my dramatic expression.

My next shoot was with Paul Kusaba.  We became really good friend and I got a lot of my practice on him.  Our first shoot was some fashion shots at Temple Valley in Kaneohe.  It was a fun shoot.  I was getting comfortable with posing and expression.

What was my favorite shoot?
I’d have to say my girlfriend Cher, also my talented makeup artist, started a clothing line called “Phragile.”  It was mostly cut up tank tops.  She wanted me to model for her line.  It was super fun.  And Marlowe Holt shot it.  We went to that same beach where I had my very first photo shoot, on Diamond Head.  Marlowe was super talented, and the shoot wasn’t too long.  He made me look like a super model in almost all of the photos.  I love collaborating and working with friends.  I also did a lingerie show for Look Magazine as a favor.  It was a really small show, and Reggie Miller was there.  But the girl’s were cool, and it was really fun getting ready for it.  I like to be sexy. ;D

What was my first nude shoot?

I shot with Clay Valverde when I was 18 after we had done a few bikini shoots.  I started to feel more comfortable with him.  I really didn’t know the scene yet, and he offered to pay me for a topless shoot, so I did it. I still brought my boyfriend along to feel comfortable.  Sometimes you can just tell when a photographer is perving out.  He seemed to always be licking his lips and staring at the wrong places.  He always was trying to get me to do nudes.  I’m comfortable with it, but it should be professional.  I regretted shooting in that apartment with horrible lighting because it looked like amateur porn.  I shot with him 5 years later in a bikini shoot with my girlfriend.  His photography did improve greatly.  But I don’t think I’d shoot with him again.

I’ve done implied nudity shoots with JT Gray from Northshoresurfphotos.com, Marlowe Holt, and talented Vince Cavataio as well.  When I was 19 I had the opportunity to shoot with Mr Bob Coello from the Northshore, owner of artofwomen.com.  He is so talented and uses mostly natural light to shoot.  I shot some bikini pictures with another girl.  He insisted that I do some cheesy coconut shell top pictures so I did.  Regardless of talent, Bob Coello is the biggest fucking pervert I have worked with.  He’s openly a pervert.  I guess he knows he can get away with it.  However, I am super pleased with my private collection of nudes that he did for me the second time we shot.  They are beautiful.  And he didn’t use  a touch of photoshop on them.

Bob Coello

Have you been published?

I had a 3 page spread in Easy Rider’s Magazine.  That was a fun shoot.  We shot on a dope chopper from Kustom Fab.  I had to do my own hair and makeup, and help with wardrobe because the guys were clueless.  They asked me to help last minute and I did it for a friend as a favor, but they paid me well. ;D

I got a full page in Ryan Kerns’ spread in Look Magazine after I shot with him.  After our first shoot at Toni’s house, I still was having fun shooting so I suggested that we (him, Kai and me) continue shooting at the Pali Lookout.   He got some great candids of me and Kai.  And a sepia picture of  me showing my back in a $500 yellow Catherine Malendrino dress was published.  It was nice to see a full page. ;D  Too bad I didn’t get any credit as the model.  It was actually funny because Ryan had been trying to get me to shoot with him for years.  I had always declined.  But I noticed his portfolio improving, so I decided it would be beneficial to shoot with him.  Ryan has grown to be a very talented photographer.  I thoroughly enjoy shooting with him.

I shot with Vince Cavataio on the North Shore.  He is a super mellow surfer dude from North shore, and practically is the King of bikini beach shots, Hawaiian Tropics style shoots.  I’m pretty sure he invented it.  We did some sexy bikini pics and implied nudity pics.  He’s very professional and a talented photographer.  There were many great photos in the set.  He had some photoshopped pictures where he made my hips curvier and boobs bigger as well.  They were pretty good too.  If he didn’t live so far I’d shoot with him every week, if he’d let me.  We shot a second time and attempted an underwater shoot at Rocky Point.  I’m a water baby, but it was super hard.  The current is super strong there.  I couldn’t hold my breath very long.  And relaxing my face while trying not to block my face with bubbles was difficult and working on my pose.  2 years later they published one of the pictures, (not the greatest) in the Women of Hawaii 2009 calendar.

I did a Coolio music video in Higschool. LOL.  And a music video for my boy Ikena Dupont and Big Tease.  I’ve also been on a lot of local fliers and posters and local businesses such as clubs and bars.

I’ve been in a lot of films at import shows and random stuff, I can’t remember now.

Vince Cavataio

Are they real?

Real expensive!  I got my D’s from Dr. Gregory Herbich in Honolulu.  He is a talented dr. and I haven’t hesitated to recommend any of my friends to him.  The 1st month I got them, I called my boy, Paul Kusaba.  Thanks to him, I got most of my amateur practice on him.  LOL!  I told him we have to shoot my new babies, and we went back to my favorite spot, Diamond Head.

“My new babies. 1 mo. old.” Photo by Paul Kusaba

What’s up with my tattoos?

Its a long story.  Kind of stupid.  A reminder that I was in love once and never again.  My ex and I did our swallows together.  I have 2 on my pelvis, done by Q at House of Ink.  He’s great, has a steady hand, and works fast.  Ny ex has two on his lats.  I wanted to go small for my first tattoo.  It didn’t really hurt too bad.  It stung a bit on the hip bone but the rest was ok.  THen he dropped me off at the airport to Vegas, and he left for deployment the next day and I remember bleeding all over him, hugging and crying at the airport.

After we broke up that same summer, I did it.  I had a Sinful t shirt with rhinestones on it with roses and swallows and a banner.  I bought it at Metro Park.  The same day I went to my tattoo guy, Andrew, an apprentice at House of Ink in Kailua and asked him to draw a rendition of that, in his own style.  I liked Andrew’s style, he is a talented artist.  I wanted my swallows to be different from the traditional jerry sailor swallows, like the one on my pelvis.  Then he showed me his gray ones on his chest plate.  It was perfect.  But of course, different.  I think subconsciously, out of hurt and heart break I tattood my back.   I kind of regret doing it.  But it’s always a symbol of love (and hurt) to me.  It’s still a beautiful tattoo, and I wish I could finish it but my homey Andrew moved to SF.  But hey!  I’m moving to SF next year, so maybe I will finish it then!

I think getting a tattoo has hurt my chances at becoming a successful model.  But I don’t really care.  I’ve never been the type to conform.  I like being myself and doing what I want to do without any restrictions.  I think tattoo’s are getting more common everyday.  Besides, I model because I enjoy it, not because I want to be some amphetamine girl role model for little girls and women everywhere.  I think it’s a joke when girl’s who are no where near star quality actually think they have a chance in the model industry, and as they get older, eventually get manipulated into lower standard modeling, even playboy, or soft porn.  Being in Play Boy in my opinion isn’t an accomplishment.  Don’t get me wrong.  Every girl in Play Boy is beautiful, but I think if you are a real model, you’d be doing runway shows at fashion weeks, in print ads in Gucci and Dolce & Gabanna, and getting paid $20k for gigs to keep your clothes on.  Sometimes I do wish that I never shot nudes.  A lot of people told me I’d regret it when I was younger, but I didn’t listen.  But who does?

Who are my favorite photographers?

JT Gray Northshoresufrphotos.com, Marlowe Holt marloweholt.com, Ryan Kerns, Oh there’s so many, I can’t name them all.

Who are my favorite Stylists?
I never really worked with many.  I’ve done most of my own concepts.  Ryan Kerns always has innovative ideas.  And Caleb Shinobi has great innovative ideas.  I only got to shoot with him once, unfortunately, but it was so fun and creative. (and naked ;D)

Favorite hair stylist?

I have a secret weapon… shhh… you can’t tell everyone.  Sunny Salon.  And old Korean lady who has a shop upstairs from Like Like Drive Inn on Keeaumoku.  She’s the only person that would do my hair perfect everytime.   She’s amazing and fast!  Everytime I’d come back to her after someone screwed my hair up begging her to fix it.  I always leave there looking like a movie star. LOL!

Favorite MUA?

Cheryl Definitely CHER!

What inspires you as a model?

When I model I think about how I would look at my boyfriend.  I want to look sexy.  SO I guess I have a bit of a sexy deviance in my eyes.

PHOTOGRAPHERS TO WATCH OUT FOR!!!!

I use to work out at Power House and was approached by Emery Lucas.  Watch out for him.  he promises $200k print ads, and a $200k bonus for getting implants D and bigger.  I told him I was already a D and he insisted they were C’s and I go bigger.  He wanted an $800 deposit. Total SCAM. He also wanted to take pics of my boobs.

Kent Tran.  His photography looks bad.  He ran into me on the street and tried to flag me down and get me to join him for a drink at a hostess bar.  He frequents hostess bars and tries to hook up with girls at hostess bars.  A hostess once told me that he asked her to join him for a drink, then made her pay for it. Then when they shot, he demanded she be his girlfriend.

Bob Coello.  He’s super talented, but he’s a total perv with no professionalism.

Clay Valverde. I  never was comfortable with him.  You just know.

Ty Ferguson.  I met him at a MMA fight I ring girled for once.  I hate to be a mean critic, he was a nice guy but his photos weren’t that great.
