Of course. Of course, it was too good to be true. I happened to be at the ready when Walmart announced its pre-order of the Nintendo SNES Classic Edition, and I managed to get my pre-order processed. But today, I got notified (and so did everyone else) that this SNES pre-order was a technical glitch […]
Fingers crossed. It looks like I successfully pre-ordered a Nintendo SNES Classic Edition. When Nintendo announced this minature retro gaming console, pre-order links at Amazon, Walmart, and Best Buy soon followed. I had signed up for inventory notifications at these sites, and I got an alert yesterday afternoon from Walmart. Following the link, I quickly […]
Over the weekend, I saw vestiges of Kailua’s past. The last existence of Quiznos was being erased as the former sub sandwich shop’s sign was painted over. As the renovation of Macy’s is still underway, part of the renovation uncovered its older past when Macy’s was Liberty House.
On my last day in Japan, I saw a vending machine that sold Mountain Dew. This was the first appearance of Dew that I came across after two weeks traveling the cities of Nippon. This was surely a sign of what was to come. Back in Hawaii while stopping by a Walmart, I went a […]
So it looks like my “new” MacBook Pro 2016 with TouchBar and Radeon Pro 460 with 4 MB does not support DisplayPort Multi-Stream Transport (MST). MST allows the daisy chaining of supported monitors. I got a USB-C to DisplayPort cable from Amazon and connected it to my first Dell UltraSharp U2515H. The display finally mirrored […]

All good things must come to an end, and Day 16 marks the end of this memorable, caffeinated voyage to Japan. My canned coffee drink was sadly dumped at Haneda Airport when we had to go through security for a second time. Having gone through security at Hiroshima, I figured it was safe to buy […]
What coffee does a day in Hiroshima bring? A Beans & Roasters Caffe Latte for the Nozomi ride.
Driving from Kyoto to Osaka led to a rest stop where a Wonda Black kept me company. Again, I didn’t want a drink that could go bad during the day so bitter black it was.
Don’t exactly know when the new Pieology in Kailua opened for business but have no doubt that they are open. Here’s the photographic evidence. You can find Pieology Kailua at 151 Hekili St. across the street from Target.
With a new sticker affixed and majority of the labeling in Japanese, I tried this drink and thought the Wonda did live up to its slogan of “Wonderful Coffee.” This drink has the right balance of coffee and sweetness. Enough coffee flavor with some expected bitterness but with just the right amount of sweetness. The […]
A hot day in Kyoto warranted two drinks in order to keep cool. After walking from the Saga Arashiyama station to the Togetsukyo Bridge, I got an European black coffee via the Georgia brand. Nothing special, but because the day was just beginning, I didn’t want anything with cream that might spoil in the heat […]
