On the Scene: A birthday at Waialae

    Carol Yap, seated left, celebrated her 95th birthday with a dinner party for several dozen friends and family members, including grandson Chris Wong, standing left; Danny Kaleikini; her daughter, Linda Wong; and Chris’ wife, Connie Wong — Thursday at Waialae Country Club. Yap usually celebrates with a luau at the family’s fishpond in Kahaluu, but Kaleikini’s “unplugged” singing with a trio of Hawaiian musicians gave this year’s birthday observance in town a similar “kanikapila make music” feeling.
