Have you been to the Starbucks location in the Park Shore Hotel in Waikiki? It’s on the corner of Kalakaua and Kapahulu, right across the Honolulu Zoo and features an awesome interior. The focal design point of this store has to be this picture of a wave break. Once you get past the imagery of […]

I’m not sure exactly why, but one of my favorite looking Starbucks in Hawaii is the one capping the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center. I think it’s the large exterior facade that is strikingly different from most other Starbucks locations. Maybe it’s the repeated box pattern that makes up the overall square shape of the store. […]
Doesn’t get any better than this!
The main stairway leading to the Hale Koa hotel in Waikiki has got to be one of the most confusing ever. If you ever walked up these steps, you know what I mean. Each step is so long, you need to take an intermediary step just to reach the next step level. So instead of […]
A short staycation at the Sheraton Waikiki hotel with its Helumoa Playground was simply not enough. I said we’d be coming back, and so there we were, playing in the kid friendly pools and reheating in the hot tubs and eating well. Check out some pictures. Some of my favorites.

Took a quick visit to the latest Apple Store in Hawaii located in the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center. It is big and surprisingly empty. Not overrun with kids like the Ala Moana store and no local celebrities like the Kahala location. I wonder how the tourist traffic is faring? The exterior lava rock facade looks […]

You pig out at Sunday brunch at Orchids in Halekulani!! All hotel brunches are expensive, and this brunch is probably the costliest around, BUT the food is so good! The […]
