Moiliili Mochi & Candies, Liliha Street Now a thing of the past: a tray of intricately designed cookies from Moiliili Mochi and Candies. After 17 years at its Liliha location, owners Jared and Eva Ikeda closed the shop in July 2008 due to an increase in rent.
Henry Ho Building, Palama Street Sisters Beverlyn Ho (left, now deceased) and Jocelyn Ho (right) grew up on the second floor of their father’s self-named building. Their mother, a teacher, helped the architect design the structure. Today, the Liliha Town Center is located on the building’s ground floor. And, to the neighborhood’s delight—or dismay?—the property is still as pink as the Royal Hawaiian.
Hawaii First Samoan Assembly of God, Palama Street “Samoan people are very religious,” explains Etuati Lafaele, pastor of Hawaii First Samoan Assembly of God, a Christian church with roughly 200 regular members. “The culture in Samoa is every evening every family gets together in their own home and has a meeting where they sing and pray.”
