PLANNING YOUR SOUTH PACIFIC- THEMED AFFAIR?
The focal point for any South Pacific- themed events especially those that are staged here in Bohol would have to be the tiki bar, an exotic- themed drinking station or bar that serves mostly rhum- based cocktails or mixed drinks such as the rhum coke which if added with a twist of lemon becomes Cuba Libre!
Other popular choices are the mai tai, the pina colada and other tutti- frutti mixed drinks. The tiki bars are decorated with art that is representative of the South Pacific & tropical island culture
Until now, I still remember the legendary Kontiki Floating Bar in Boracay. Anchored some meters from the shoreline, going to Kontiki for a couple of drinks and to enjoy the sunset was quite a challenge. Going back to shore after getting a little tipsy and making sure not to step on those wayward sea urchins was even more challenging.
And to make sure that your South Pacific- themed party would be talked- about for days, do include a show- stopping Tahitian dance and a fire dance performance. Aside from regaling the guests not only with their scintillating and breath-taking performances but also with their colourful & eye- catching costumes and props, these are the elements that give the event its ambience and flair.
For Engr. Oua’s golden birthday bash, among the most talked- about highlights were the dance performances that include a fire dance, an upbeat Tahitian dance and a romantic Hawaiian dance. The solo fire dancer’s performance revolved with the poi, a pair of roughly arm-length chains with handles attached to one end, and bundle of wicking material on the other.
