Ba-Le Kailua Closed

Not sure when this happened but Ba-Le, a mainstay in Kailua for decades, is now closed. The storefront now looks like this. From its days in Don Quijote then moving down to Hekili Street, this franchise provided affordable and tasty Vietnamese sandwiches and other dishes. I loved their iced coffee ratcheted up caffeine levels. Sadly, the […]

eBay Tip: Running vs Golf Shirts

When it comes to shirts, golf doesn’t but running does… sell that is. Although golf shirts look sharp and can be worn in non-sporting situations, they simply don’t sell. I think there’s just too many of them out there, and although the prices are deeply discounted, they just don’t move. Running shirts, on the other […]

Ross Kaneohe Remodeling

I’m not quite sure how extensive it’ll be, but the only Ross in Kaneohe (for now) is being remodeled. The store is still open for business but the interior is changing around. Sections have moved and are crammed together while other areas have been cleared out. My shopping flow has been thrown off by all […]

Nike Wishlist

If you were able to get (current) Nike shoes at a significant discount from their normal retail price, which pairs would you pick up? Here’s what I’m eyeing. Air Vapormax Yeah, I wouldn’t pay $190 for Nike’s latest Vapormax 2, but at half price, I’d do it. Actually, I’d strongly consider the funky Utility variant. […]

Vince Is the Real VIP of VIP Towing

It’s never a great way to start the day with your normally dependable ride to and from work (and everything in between) stuttering and eventually stalling roadside. Really, it’s a crappy way to start the day. A call for roadside assistance was sent to VIP Towing, and after a 90-minute wait, a VIP tow truck […]

IKEA Blue Bag!

Yay! I’m now a member of the IKEA blue bag club since I now have a Frakta large bag. This $1 bag is a popular choice for hauling boxes and packages to the post office after making a bunch of eBay sales. Granted I haven’t yet made enough sales to actually fill the bag, but […]

Google Starbucks WiFi, Since When?

I’ve loved the speed of the free Google Starbucks Wi-Fi service available at most Starbucks locations, but this “feature” looks new. Since when did the Google Starbucks Wi-Fi service start this authentication system? I’m used to selecting the Wi-Fi network then surfing the Internet. I’m not really sure how this works as well. At a […]

Kicks Analysis 2018 #8: The Champ

Can you tell I’ve bee preoccupied this March Madness? Instead of watching all the upsets and craziness that is the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, I’ve been curating the Pulpconnection store on eBay. So instead of doing the full series of Kicks Analysis for 2018, I begin and end with the championship that belongs to Villanova. […]

“For Safety”

It’s been awhile, but I just got denied entrance to yet another store while walking in with a drink. For this instance, the store was Ross at Ala Moana, and I was enjoying my half done Starbucks iced caramel macchiato. The greeter pointed out the no food or beverage sign on the door. I asked […]

Apple HomePod Showing Up at Target

It was a matter of time, but Apple’s HomePod music and smart home system is now showing up at Target. It’s still priced at $349 but using the Target REDcard 5% discount is as good as it gets on Apple devices. If you’re thinking of picking one up in store, I would call the location […]
