My Yelp Review Banned

There’s a first for everything, and today I got my first banned review on Yelp. The email I received said that my review “fell outside our Content Guidelines as it did not appear to describe a customer experience.” Yelp’s Content Guidelines are available here. So I do admit that I was hangry when writing 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 […]

“East Side” Girl Scout Smores Cookies

Alright, a Girl Scout troop in Hawaii needs to find a way to bring in the other Smores cookies. Sourced from two different bakeries, there are differences in Girl Scout cookies throughout America as described by the L.A. Times. Personally, I think these chocolate-covered graham cracker cookies are way better than the sandwich version sold by Hawaii-based Girl […]

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.

Neighboring AT&T is the once-again relocated GNC. GNC was right across the street next to Starbucks and Jamba Juice then moved by UPS. And now its latest […]

Signs of Hawaii: Community Sink

I don’t know what kind of places @abaggy frequents, but he does find signs that are doozies. I mean what kind of workplace needs to post this kind of sign in the first floor breakroom? I guess you need to rinse your mouth and spit in the communal bathroom sink. THIS IS A COMMUNITY SINK.

Hawaii Ocean Expo 2017 Poke Eating Contest

A new year, a new event, a new food, but the results are well… watch and see. This was the first ever poke eating contest at the Hawaii Ocean Expo. Need more gut-busting amazement? Check out his first win at the Farm Fair in 2009 followed by a victory in 2014. Now add spicy ahi […]

Where’s the Caffeine, Costco?!?

Is this an epidemic or just bad timing? I’ve been to two different Costco locations in the past two weeks, and on both occasions, I haven’t been able to find their signature Seattle Mountain Coffee in anything other than decaf. What’s up with that? There are other caffeinated coffee brands available like Starbucks, Kauai Coffee, […]
