Nice to meet you in here, is it toppy your name, I do not suppose 1997 is your birth year? And if so, then you must be a child of only thirteen year of age not even in high school yet. Anyhow pleasure to know you.
Where am I in Hawaii? I am living on the West side of the Big island of Hawaii in a town called Kona (Kailua-Kona) for almost twenty years, not to mention those times on the mainland.
Yes, Hawaii time is seventeen hours behind Thai time. The matter of fact the time is not slower than elsewhere on earth, only we are on the very far west so the time is behind everybody else.
Welcome to guru google, hope you enjoy yourself along with new friends in here.
See you around and may God bless.
PS. I have never visited Maui before but plan to do that in the future (actually I am a very contented person not so thrill to leave my home to go anywhere else). From what I heard it's not much different than any other islands but unique.
