A Day of Working to Work

Sadly, today was a day of working in order to get work done. Instead of doing productive work, I had to do work that would eventually enable productive work. I completed a few mandatory online training sessions, and I filled out several justifications why I needed “non-standard” apps. Why do I need Pixelmator instead of […]

Stopped by UNIQLO Ala Moana

So I finally got to visit the new UNIQLO Pop-Up store in Ala Moana, and as expected, it was crowded. For the most part, inventory was good except for this Doraemon shirt that was only available in medium. For a temporary space, this location is big-ish, but it is small for a UNIQLO. To keep […]

Banana Kit Kat

A banana-flavored Kit Kat? Tokyo, that’s why. Unfortunately, this pairing isn’t one of my favorites. Bananas aren’t my thing, and the banana flavor is too artificial tasting. The crunch is good though.

Nordstrom Redemption and Air Jordan Color-blindness

Nordstrom has redeemed itself, partially at least. Last you remember, Nordstrom cancelled my discounted order for a pair of Air Jordan 1 mid, in a shadow-like colorway (I’ve since learned that these are not THE premium Shadow AJ1 highs). They just couldn’t fulfill the order. But seeing the here-now-gone-tomorrow nature of these shoes, I persisted, […]

Deleting Bulk Email from Gmail

With thousands of unread email in Gmail, it was time to clean house. But just how do you select more than one screen worth of email at a time in Gmail? As a product from Google, I should have known better – you use search. Yup, in the Gmail search bar, you do something like […]

eBay Tip: Too New Isn’t Good

By now you know you can find completely random items at Ross. Most items are from last season or even older. But once in awhile, you find some newer items. In fact, some items are still being sold by retailers. Take these Air Jordan Trainer 2 Flyknits for example. While this model is still available […]

eBay Tip: Pass on the Nike Theas

Personally, I think the Nike Thea line for women look great, especially the Ultra Flyknit versions. I love the silhouette and the interwoven colors of the Flyknit add another dimension. But this doesn’t translate to sales on eBay. And at around $55 at Ross, the Air Max Thea Ultra Flyknit costs more than average. Not […]

Lychee Monitoring at Target

First off, who knew Target stores in Hawaii sold lychee? Must be quite a few people knew since Target is now monitoring lychee sales upon checkout. Yes, Target cashiers watch how much lychee you’re buying. And don’t think you can outsmart the system by going to self check-out. The POS systems are programmed to halt […]

Historical Heat

Although it may not seem like it, I’ve only been going to Ross regularly since the beginning of 2018. Sure, I had been going in the past but not as frequently. Looking back at some of the pics I have, I had come across some heat back in the day. Check it out starting with […]

Trying Out Orbi’s Mesh Network

Walking the lanes of Costco, I noticed a new pack of Netgear’s Orbi wireless networking devices. Instead of the three-unit pack I had seen previously, Costco carries a two pack (one base and one satellite), and the cost is good, right under $200. While a single Wifi router has been working in my household, speeds […]
