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.
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 […]
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, […]
If you have to return your Nike purchase via UPS soon, do so before the weekend when the UPS location in Kailua will be closing its doors. But this is only temporary as some kind of short term renovation is done over from April 7 to 10.
