My Japan Education: Nike ACG 07 KMTR

Just look at this new Nike creation, born from Nike Labs under the All Conditions Gear (ACG) label. The NikeLab ACG 07 KMTR is built for the urban commuter. Featuring no laces but instead a draw string to tighten the upper and a forefoot strap secured by magnets, the KMTR is meant to be easily […]

My Japan Education: Samurai Gourmet

To get a sense of the Japanese cuisine, its preparation, its underlying meaning, and its flavor, you must watch the Netflix series, Samurai Gourmet. While some of the storylines are hokey, you can’t deny the attention to detail and focus placed on the featured food dishes. The closeups and the sounds of cooking fill the […]

Two Pics from the Iolani Fair

Two pictures I wanted to share from the 2017 Iolani Fair. While walking by the swing ride at night, I spontaneously  took a picture of it illuminating the area. After looking at the picture more carefully, I noticed the dude standing cross armed aligned with the center of the ride. He almost looks purposefully posed for […]

My Japan Education: Tokyo vs Osaka Banana

Apparently, banana snacks are a thing in Japan. I was introduced to the Tokyo Banana but then was told that the Osaka Banana was better. After wrapping my head around the concept of these banana-based concoctions, I was fortunate enough to sample both. They weren’t the freshest samples but well within the alloted expiration date. […]

Target Kailua Now With More Self Service

I guess after a one-year learning session with these self checkout counters at Target Kailua, the time to expand was right. Now the self checkout counters have about doubled with the installation of another row. Amazingly, the traditional checkout counters manned by employees still have long queues. I guess business must be good?

Looking for Trip Itinerary Planning

Can anyone recommend a good trip itinerary planning service or app? Ideally, I’d want both – a web site that has a mobile app to access its services on the go. This service would keep track of a trip itinerary, showing what’s planned for each day. Gotta be able to add places, attractions, events, lodging, […]

Adidas NMD_ Is Nomadic

I’m guessing that the NMD line for Adidas is a shortform of “nomadic.” Because after getting this pair of NMD_R1, they’re already on the move, headed back to Adidas. That glitch colorway is fun but subtle. It’s that PrimeKnit upper that is of issue. Because it’s a single piece construction without a separate shoe tongue, […]

Good Bye Easy Mint

(Not) so easy come, but easy goes goes this Easy Mint colorway of the Adidas Ultraboost. Adidas’ inconsistent sizing strikes again where this women’s size 7 was bigger than a women’s size 7. Oh well. I still love the color, but if it don’t fit right, there’s not much choice…

The Next Fashion Crush at Target

The next fashion crush at Target will happen this Sunday on April 9, 2017. My only source of this information is this poster announcing the launch of Victoria Beckham’s clothing line collaboration with Target.  If this is like other collaborations in Target’s past, the store will be stormed and inventory wiped out essentially that day.
