Comings and Goings at Ala Moana

While at Ala Moana today, I saw some changes happening. There’s a new coffee place, Island Brew, where Gloria Jeans was. Not so sure about this choice since um, Gloria Jeans went out of business seemingly not too long after opening. While we wish Island Brew good luck, we also need to say farewell to […]

Super Bowl Sunday at International Marketplace

Before the big game, we headed to the International Marketplace in Waikiki for some shopping. This was my first time back since that almost perfect night. But since then, the parking rates have been adjusted. Two things I had not known before today. Crazy Shirts at the Marketplace has its own design for the shopping […]

A Fun Black Friday

Albeit I didn’t do a whole lot of shopping on Black Friday 2016, but I did brave Ala Moana for a few hours. This was in the late afternoon when I figured the crowds would have dissapated and even the heartiest of shoppers would have hit the wall. I was sorta right. Parking was available […]

Well Done, International Market Place

A promise made, and a promise kept is deserving of praise, and yes, that’s for the International Market Place for addressing their parking rates. After near perfection, the management promised to make amends, and they have with their new parking rate structure in place for the Black Friday shopping weekend. Unfortunately, I don’t have a […]

International Market Place Striving for Perfection

Hold up. Let’s reconsider the essence of perfection. It’s not one static state but rather a continued journey upon which the International Market Place is on. You remember my almost perfect night at the Market Place, only marred by an exorbitant parking fee? Well, that has since been rectified and soon enough fixed for the […]

Almost a Perfect Night at International Market Place

Update 11/21/2016: Wow, that was fast. Read how the International Market Place is striving for perfection. Almost. So close to the pinnacle of perfection was our first night at the renovated International Market Place in Waikiki. In the end, this ruined perfection. Yes, yes, we should have known better. This is Waikiki afterall, and the rates […]

Asked to Leave… Again

It’s been a few years since I was asked to leave a store, but it finally happened again. Well, to be clear, I wasn’t directly asked to leave the store, but I could not have my drink in the store, so I took it as an indirect request to leave the store. And I did, […]

Roaming Ala Moana

Roamed around Ala Moana recently, and here’s what I saw (no worries, no busted escalators in this post). This is the first time I’ve been in Zara which I understand to be an upscale H&M. I would agree with that assessment. The most interesting aspect of that two-story location is its (working) escalator. It has […]

Shirokiya Opens on the Morrow

After much anticipation, the new Shirokiya opens tomorrow, Saturday, June 25, 2016. It’s going to be a madhouse, and I’m going to stay away for a long time. Sure, it’s not the Shirokiya of old where you could find an assortment of all things from Japanese culture. Instead, food and experience takes the forefront at […]
