Mind, Stomach, and Butt Blown

All I have to say is Mtn Dew Flamin’ Hot and now you understand the title of this post. Can you imagine the sweeteness of Dew combined with the heat of Flamin’ Hot? I can’t and that’s why I need to try this new drink for myself. Image source Really, this drink combination sounds like […]

BTS x McD Collab Meal Is Out of Stock

How I underestimated the power of the Army. I mean really it’s Chicken McNuggets, fries, a drink, and two new dipping sauces. But it’s not. It is the BTS meal at McDonalds… and this meal features a special paper bag… and possibly a $1 price tag… and the Army of BTS. The meal appeared on […]

Temporary COVID Closures at Ala Moana

With Hawaii’s Stay at Home, Work from Home emergency order in place, only businesses categorized as Essential Activies remain open. So when visiting Ala Moana, it’s eerily empty with only food vendors and restaurants allowed to operate. Even then, many chose to stay closed. The escalators were also shut down, assumedly to save on operations, […]

Banana Kit Kat

A banana-flavored Kit Kat? Tokyo, that’s why. Unfortunately, this pairing isn’t one of my favorites. Bananas aren’t my thing, and the banana flavor is too artificial tasting. The crunch is good though.

Lychee Monitoring at Target

First off, who knew Target stores in Hawaii sold lychee? Must be quite a few people knew since Target is now monitoring lychee sales upon checkout. Yes, Target cashiers watch how much lychee you’re buying. And don’t think you can outsmart the system by going to self check-out. The POS systems are programmed to halt […]

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 […]

“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 […]

All In with the Seaweed Crunch

Who else out there is all in with the Seaweed Crunch snack available at Hawaii Costco locations? Who knew almonds and nori pairs nicely? And 36 pieces in one serving size! That’ll definitely fill you up. Since you never know if Costco will continue to carry this (or any) product, you might as well stock […]

Mauna Kea Mist, the Newest Instagram Hotspot

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 […]

Must Eat at Ramen Bario

$7 for parking in the Waikiki Shopping Plaza. I don’t care. Cash only. I don’t care. All the other eateries in Waikiki Yokocho. I don’t care (well not yet anyways). Our server mixed up one of our dishes. I don’t care. Kinda pricey. I don’t care. All I care about is that ramen broth, specifically […]
