My Favorite Kind of Science Experiment

My Favorite Kind of Science Experiment

As most of you already know, I am a huge sucker for ice cream. You never have to twist my arm to venture to a new (or any, for that matter) creamery. So after a recent dinner, my family wanted to try Lucy’s Lab Creamery in Kakaako. Although they have been around for a few years, for whatever reason, I hadn’t visited yet so of course, why put it off any longer? The sign that beckons you to ice cream…

Go West, Young Man!

Go West, Young Man!

As I alluded to in my last post, July is a busy month for us with Slugger’s birthday and my wedding anniversary, but really, July kicks off a busy season for us.  After July, we celebrate a birthday every month.  Mine is in August, followed by Sunny’s in September, Keao‘s in October, my brother and mother in November and then, of course, Christmas is in December.  The second half of the year is truly a time to celebrate. To celebrate…

Regrets, I’ve Had A Few

Regrets, I’ve Had A Few

When I was a senior in high school, I tried out for the varsity baseball team. Despite not having played any kind of organized baseball since Little League, I figured I was a good enough athlete to make a go at it. When the day of the tryout arrived, I stared nervously at the other students that were trying out as well.  Many of them had played baseball for a while and looking around, clearly I was at a disadvantage. …

Try It, You’ll Like It

Try It, You’ll Like It

Having worked in Waikiki for many years and having gone to many luaus, the one food we tell every tourist to try is poi.  For those of you not familiar with poi, it’s the mashed up root of the taro plant.  It kind of has the consistency of wallpaper paste, and some will even tell you that it tastes like it too. Personally, I like poi, but I don’t love it.  I’m the guy that sneaks in a little sugar…

Airline Food

Airline Food

Living on a small island like Oahu has many benefits. For one, nothing is really more than half an hour away. Of course, when you have to sit in a car for more than an hour, it can seem like an eternity. One drawback to living on an island is travel. In order to go anywhere significant you have to get on a plane (or boat I suppose) and that means going to the airport, making your way through security…

Big D, part 2

Big D, part 2

After keeping you in suspense for several months, I decided to finish telling you all about my trip to Texas. Actually this post is mostly about the food I ate since I figured that you probably wouldn’t be too interested in the database conference I attended. So if you haven’t eaten lunch yet, this post may be a little dangerous. You’ve been warned. So when you go to Texas I guess what you’re expected to do is eat meat. Lots…

Big D, Part 1

Big D, Part 1

It’s been a busy last couple of months for me filled with some time off the island. I went to a conference in Plano, Texas and then Keao and I took a short trip to the Big Island to introduce Slugger to her cousin and her aunties and uncles for the first time. But that’s for another post (I’m trying really hard to catch up), this one is about my time in Dallas. A few of us were sent to…

Restaurant Review: The New Hard Rock Cafe in Waikiki

Restaurant Review: The New Hard Rock Cafe in Waikiki

A few weeks ago some of our really good friends from church blessed me and Keao with a nice dinner at the new Hard Rock Cafe in Waikiki. For many years the Hard Rock Cafe stood on the corner of Kalakaua Ave. and Kapiolani Blvd. Although it was right across from the Hawaii Convention Center it was just inconvenient enough from Waikiki that i would imagine unless you really were a fan it would be easy to pass up. Luckily…

Food, Glorious Food

Food, Glorious Food

For the last few months, I have been blessed enough with the opportunity to travel to the continent two different times. In May, I went to a conference in Texas and then I went to Pennsylvania to celebrate my sister’s graduation from Carnegie Mellon University. Whenever I go on trips people invariably will ask me what I ate. Luckily for them, I love taking pictures of food so for the next few posts I will show you guys what i…
