The Lights in the Wilson Tunnel Are Agitating

I guess there are new lights in the Wilson Tunnel while driving the Likelike. These LED lights are bright compared to the old lights, but the spacing or position of the lights creates a nasty flickering as you drive by. Very, very agitating. Update 3/6/17. Now with agitating video.

Nordstrom Rack Waikiki Did Not Disappoint

Oh I forgot, but there was one tiny disappointment on my first visit to the Nordstrom Rack in Waikiki, but more on that later. Unbeknownst to me, this location was open from late 2016! Anyways, a smart marketing ploy of two $5 store credits got me in the store in early 2017, and there was a […]

Mr. Tea Ala Moana Now Open

Mr. Tea is open for business, and although the store interior does look a little Spartan, customers are exiting with drinks in hand. I don’t know about Mr. Tea or if there are other locations, but with a […]

Signs of Hawaii: Beach

Recently in Kailua, I’ve seen a few of these kinds of signs posted on street posts. Obviously, they are there to help out the tourists from Japan, but I don’t know who made and put them up. Nice job with the signs and demonstrating the Aloha spirit!

No Nespresso Recycling Service for Hawaii

Aw boo. Nespresso is advertising their recycling program for used Nespresso capsules. But this program is not available in Hawaii (or Alaska and U.S. territories). Though made from aluminum, you may not have associated these small capsules as typical recyclable items. Nespresso is trying to rectify this oversight by providing customers with free recycling bags […]

There’s a Shake Shack in Hawaii?!?

Wait, no… that’s not a Shake Shack. It’s just the rebranded Teddy’s Bigger Burger in Aiea. But that green trim and logo look awfully familiar. On the other hand, I wouldn’t have known any better if I hadn’t recently visited a Shake Shack while in Washington DC and New York City. Not sure what was […]
