My SmartThings Experiment Is Done

I was an early adopter of SmartThings from its Kickstarter days, but my forray into SmartThings is done. My Gen 1 base unit still works but pretty much every accessory I own has stopped behaving. One motion sensor stopped responding a long time ago and the second sensor had been working then stopped. My on-off […]

eBay Tip: Pink > Roger Federer

Usually Roger Federer-logoed items sell. If you see that RF logo, odds are it’ll move on eBay. There’s one glaring exception that I’ve observed though. The color pink is greater than the great tennis player. I had found a Nike polo shirt infused with Nike tech and endorsed by Federer. But it did not sell. […]

Missed the UNIQLO Preview Event

Yeah, I’m a little disappointed that I missed out on the UNIQLO Pop-up Preview event at Ala Moana this afternoon, but… kids finishing the school year and spending the day with them was the right call. The day would have been even better if JR Smith at least hoisted up a shot after his rebound, […]

My Odd #rossfinds – Nike Gyakusou Socks

You never know what you’ll find at Ross, and although not a big find, I did have to look twice when I saw these socks cast to the side. The Nike label didn’t look typical, and it isn’t. These socks are from the NikeLab, and the style code of SX7234-524 say these are Nike Gyakusou NikeGrip Unisex […]

I Gotta Flip this SPAM on eBay!

Update: So while the EST199N label is a match, the canning date is out of range of the recalled products. So Hormel Foods sent out a recall of it SPAM Classic due to metal found inside. Supposedly, Hawaii is unaffected by the recall of 228,600 pounds of SPAM since supposedly none of the cans were […]

Double Air Jordan Loser!!

Not once but twice in the same day I became an Air Jordan loser. First, I totally missed the sneaky launch of the Off-White Air Jordan 1 collaboration in the UNC colorway. I learned of the drop one hour later, so it’s no surprise I took that loss.   A few hours later, I get […]

Uniqlo Pop-Up Coming to Ala Moana

In just under one week, Uniqlo is opening a pop-up location at Ala Moana. Before it’s permanent location is opened, the pop-up gives shoppers a taste of what’s to come. To find the pop-up location, head to the Center Stage and take the escalators to the third floor. The pop-up will be right there. You […]

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 […]
