There’s a Shake Shack in Hawaii?!?

Wait, no… that’s not a Shake Shack. It’s just the rebranded Teddy’s Bigger Burger in Aiea. But that green trim and logo look awfully familiar. On the other hand, I wouldn’t have known any better if I hadn’t recently visited a Shake Shack while in Washington DC and New York City. Not sure what was […]

Starbucks Cascara Latte Is Nuanced

A little late, but I tried the new Starbucks Cascara Latte which contains the fruit of the coffee cherry. Umm, yeah, it’s okay but only slightly, in a subtle, nuanced way.

My New MacBook Pro

At work, I was fortunate enough to order the new MacBook Pro with Touch Bar and accessories in November. After a prolonged ordering process, my (third party) order finally went through. After not hearing any more after a few days, I contacted the company that replied with a tracking number. Albeit a slow delivery of […]
