Disappointed with the New Nordstrom eBar

Oh eBar, you were my coffee oasis when queues were long at Starbucks. With two locations, a caffeinated drink was readily available after a short walk. But with your new single location in the Ewa Wing, I am saddened. Sure, the new eBar location looks great. The interior is bright and modern and the outside […]

Starbucks Rewards Is Economical

I gotta admit that Starbucks has done a good job of finetuning its Starbucks Rewards program to its advantage. Of course, we all should have expected it over the years. As more and more of the public got caffeine-addicted, Starbucks gradually tightened their loyalty program. Now the siren has your credit card number stored (probably […]

Game of Thrones Thought: Dragonglass

Just more random thoughts about the Game of Thrones. Now-Maester Samwell Tarly figures out how to produce Dragonglass in quantities.

Krispy Kreme Kicks

Gotta love Nike’s latest kicks collaboration with Krispy Kreme for Cavs guard Kyrie Irving. While I’m not a fan of the actual look of the Ky-Rispy Kreme, the overall idea is crazy good, especially the donut truck driving across America selling the special makeup.

Learning How to Brew a Wii

I had never come across this before and only recently inherited an used Nintendo Wii, but it looks like the Wii still has some tricks left. Released in 2006 and discontinued in 2013, the Wii hardware supports other uses like running emulators of other gaming consoles. By modding the Wii with the Homebrew Channel, users […]
