A Visit to Germaine's Luau(参加杰曼的夏威夷宴会)

By Freelance Chinese Translator Li – English to Chinese translation services - based in China.
No trip to Hawaii would be complete without a Mai Tai, a hula
lesson, a plate full of delicious Kalua pork(烤猪排) and a magnificent sunset on the beach.

Thanks to Germaine’s Luau(杰曼的夏威夷宴会), an Oahu attraction that has delighted visitors for more than three
decades, you can enjoy all of these experiences in a single, unforgettable

This venerable(令人尊重的) luau takes place in Kapolei near Barber’s Point on the southwestern tip of Oahu, about
27 miles from Waikiki. If you’re driving, you’ll want to leave your hotel early to beat rush-hour traffic, or even
spend the day on the North Shore before heading for Kapolei. Germaine’s gates open at 5:15 p.m., so you can claim
the best seats in an outdoor theatre area filled with long picnic tables and
low luau tables surrounded by tatami mats(榻榻米席垫)—perfect for kids!

If you’d rather not drive—or if you’re looking for the full
Germaine’s experience—ask about the free shuttle(飞机) when you make your luau reservations(预订). Germaine’s provides door-to-door service to and from Waikiki
hotels. Traffic and the buses’ meandering routes(蜿蜒曲折的路线) can expand the ride to Kapolei into a two-hour odyssey(探险) (the nighttime ride back is much shorter).
But it’s a comfy(舒适的) trip, and you’ll be surrounded by like-minded luau-goers and
amused by the patter of the tour guide(导游的顺口溜).

Upon arrival, a Germaine’s shutterbug(摄影爱好者) will photograph your group against a lovely natural backdrop of
dusky sky(以昏暗的天空,海滩和大海为自然背景), beach and sea. (Photos may be purchased for $20 at the end of the
evening.) Belly up to the outdoor bar and redeem(买) one of your three complimentary adult beverage tickets for a
Mai-Tai, rum punch, Blue Hawaii, or domestic beer; unlimited soft drinks,
coffee and tea are also available.

As the sun begins to set, an emcee(主持人) introduces the “Royal Court” while a five-piece band plays island standards. Dancers clad in
regal crimson(华丽的深红色) and yellow
take the stage in a ceremony(典礼) that provides a brief introduction to ancient Hawaiian protocol(礼仪). Several good-humored volunteers from the
audience are invited to show off their best hula moves in a riotous “contest.”(欢腾的竞赛) Then, it’s time for the feast!

Germaine’s claims to be one of the few
commercial luaus in Hawaii that cooks a pig each day in its traditional imu pit(浅灶坑), located just behind its outdoor bar. At
about 6:15 each evening, as the crowd watches hungrily, two men clad in bright
lava-lavas are charged with opening and unwrapping the imu and retrieving the
Kalua pork. Tender, smoky, and succulent(味美), the shredded pork is simply delectable.

The buffet tables are laden with standard
luau fare like lomi-lomi salmon(鲑鱼), chicken long rice, fried mahi, and poi(山芋). Don’t be afraid of the poi! Try it as a
condiment with the salmon or Kalua pork. Fried chicken, teriyaki(红烧的) beef, steamed rice, dinner rolls, and a
quartet of salads (green, macaroni(意大利通心粉), coleslaw(卷心菜沙拉), and three-bean) are also available, and the dessert tables feature
treats like fresh pineapple(凤梨), haupia (coconut pudding), and chocolate cake.

At about 7, the stage show recommences(重新开始). Dancers representing(代表) Hawaii, New Zealand, Samoa(萨摩亚群岛) and Tahiti(塔希提) provide spectacular and colorful
entertainment, often accompanied by ipu and uli uli (gourd drums and rattles).
Highlights include a dramatic Samoan fire-knife dance, a sensual Tahitian
couples’ hula, and a Maori dance with glowing “poi balls,” as well as several
opportunities for audience participation (and a door prize drawing, too!)
