Here it is; just before Christmas Eve, and Mele Apana is getting ready. She said on-air this morning, "Brother, I am so excited, I can't wait to go shopping!" Billy V responded, "What do you mean shopping? You haven't done it yet?" Apparently it is a tradition of hers to wait until Christmas Eve then attack the malls. We have received word from her camp that she will only do her shopping within a 6 block radius of her home, which is within walking distance of Walmart, Sam's Club, Ala Moana Center and Don Quijote.
Her final word was that she does wear earphones and listen to Christmas music while she shops; so if you call her name and she doesn't answer...or she's moving to the sounds of Kaumakaiwa Kanaka'ole...she is in full shopping mode.
