Short story. I missed the grand opening of the new Ross at Ala Moana. Downstairs by Old Navy, I got to the store at 7:30 hoping it would be open according to the posted store hours. But grand openings being grand openings, this event’s timeline superceded regular store hours. So although patrons were waiting for […]

Over the weekend, I saw vestiges of Kailua’s past. The last existence of Quiznos was being erased as the former sub sandwich shop’s sign was painted over. As the renovation of Macy’s is still underway, part of the renovation uncovered its older past when Macy’s was Liberty House.
Don’t exactly know when the new Pieology in Kailua opened for business but have no doubt that they are open. Here’s the photographic evidence. You can find Pieology Kailua at 151 Hekili St. across the street from Target.
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 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 […]
Kinda odd seeing a party bus headed towards you on a narrow residential street.
I think I was wrong. The “B” in B. Patisserie may not stand for “box” but rather “bucks” as in we spend big bucks whenever we pay a visit.
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 […]
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?
I never did learn the reason why several Hawaii Costco locations were without caffeineated varieties of their signature Seattle Mountain Coffee whole coffee beans. But rest assured the caffeine is back in stock.
Finally coming to Kailua is its own AT&T location. Previously, the closest location was in Kaneohe, but now Kailua residents can get serviced at the soon-to-open location near Times. 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 […]
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.
