In the bottom row of men’s shoes at Nordstrom Rack was this nondescript box. Peaking over the edge of the box, I noticed something out of place, the Adidas AlphaBounce running shoes. Amazingly this relatively new runner found its way to the discounted shelves. Must be flawed I thought while pulling them from the […]
My latest Starbucks obsession is the Nitro Freddo. This drink starts with nitro cold brew on tap. Then it’s topped off with a dark caramel foam and a sprinkle of what looks like Starbucks instant VIA coffee. Alone, the Nitro Cold Brew is a potent drink – highly caffeinated and all coffee flavor. The Freddo […]
This picture pretty much says it all about why I love getting gas from Sam’s Club Gas in Pearl City. Yes, it’s open and that one other truck just pulled in right before I did.
During my last AT&T billing cycle, I exceeded my shared data plan limit and got this warning. Luckily, my plan has no overage costs (like before), but mobility at 128kbps (G2-speeds) would be unbearable right? Well, it wasn’t that bad. It was sufferable but tolerable. Of course, jumping onto available wifi was the first priority […]
Well, I surely hadn’t planned this and really, didn’t want this. But I spent a few days doing an unplanned comparison of wifi bridges. Now, these devices are reaching legacy status since many devices now have wireless networking built-in. But for those devices that only have wired Ethernet, they need a bridge to change from […]
Anyone else experience a “very sleepy” iPhone after installing iOS 11? I’ve encountered at least three times that my iPhone 7 doesn’t want to wake up right away. It’s usually after I put my phone to sleep then try to wake it immediately. The screen stays black. I know the iPhone is still on since […]
Still got a working Apple AirPort Express and want to configure it using a newer macOS such as 10.12 aka Sierra? Follow these helpful instructions. The biggest gotcha is joining the correct wifi network name. For me, my reset AirPort Express was advertising a network of “Apple Network”. But if you follow steps 6 and […]
With a new Samsung refrigerator, I need to buy new water (and air?) filters.
Liking my new Yeti 20 oz tumbler that I picked up from Costco. This cup keeps hot things hot and cold drinks cold. The one thing that I’m missing is a sealable lid. It doesn’t have to be completely leakproof but being able to seal it enough so liquids don’t leak out while being schlossed […]
It simply don’t matter. From watermelon to poke, the results are the same – winner. Let’s set the stage. Ricefest 2017. Third annual poke bowl eating contest sponsored by Paina Cafe. Two bowls. One bottle POG. No palu allowed. Three minutes. Ten contestants. The most poke eaten determines the winner. Utensils optional. From what I […]
Preoccupied with all kinds of stuff and in my spare time, blogging has fallen in priority. Instead I’m still playing Hearthstone and getting into the Marvel series on Netflix. Thanks to the Defenders, I started watching Daredevil. I had watched the first episode when it first aired but didn’t get hooked. But after learning of […]
The new Starbucks location in Nuuanu (in the former Hungry Lion spot) is open for business and is the second third store on Oahu to serve Starbucks’ Nitro Cold Brew. Cold brewed for hours, infused with nitrogen, and served from a tap, this is an interesting drink. Because there’s no ice, the drink isn’t super […]
