KAWS x Sesame Street x UNIQLO @ Ala Moana

Did you cop your KAWS collaboration with Sesame Street and UNIQLO? If not, I highly suggest you do so soon. Launched Thursday night online, physical stores started selling these graphic tees on Friday, including the Pop-Up location at Ala Moana. While stock remained strong, there definitely was a steady stream of customers, all exiting with […]

What did you buy?

Stopped by UNIQLO Ala Moana

So I finally got to visit the new UNIQLO Pop-Up store in Ala Moana, and as expected, it was crowded. For the most part, inventory was good except for this Doraemon shirt that was only available in medium. For a temporary space, this location is big-ish, but it is small for a UNIQLO. To keep […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Vince Is the Real VIP of VIP Towing

It’s never a great way to start the day with your normally dependable ride to and from work (and everything in between) stuttering and eventually stalling roadside. Really, it’s a crappy way to start the day. A call for roadside assistance was sent to VIP Towing, and after a 90-minute wait, a VIP tow truck […]
