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 […]
Today I am defeated although it started last night with the surprise release of the SNES Classic Edition. So if you recall, I had one of these pre-ordered through Walmart but this “accidental” release was cancelled. Last night Best Buy released their pre-orders, accidentally or not. I didn’t see the release in time so missed […]
The next hotspot for viral Instagram pics has to be Mauna Kea Mist inside of the Shirokiya Village Walk, Ala Moana. What’s all the fuss about? It starts with the frozen colorful balls that’s like cereal, not ice. Then you pop one in your mouth and watch the mists of Mauna Kea arise. The fun […]
Seems easy enough to make one from a cereal box. Looking at an eclipse incorrectly will cause permaent damage.
My caution to you is to stay away from Starbuck’s new Salted Caramel Mocha bottled drink. Found at grocery stores, this limited edition drink sounds wonderful but falls short on the promise. Not caramel-y enough, not mocha-y enough, and (thankfully) not salty enough, this drink isn’t worth its cost of +$3.
Looks like this “faithful niner” has lost his faith. Beaten down and broken down, this abandoned truck has been collecting parking tickets for sometime. It’s missing one window, the car battery is under the vehicle, and it’s sitting on three wheels. Yeah, I’d say faith has been lost.
