My Current Fascination – Streetlight Cadence

My dad’s television was on and tuned into HI*Sessions, showcasing local musical talent. I wasn’t really paying attention until I saw this interesting looking group. Is that guy strumming a violin? Is that other dude playing the cello standing up? Wait, is that an accordion? And the guitarist has a snazzy hat! So I asked […]

BTS x McD Collab Meal Is Out of Stock

How I underestimated the power of the Army. I mean really it’s Chicken McNuggets, fries, a drink, and two new dipping sauces. But it’s not. It is the BTS meal at McDonalds… and this meal features a special paper bag… and possibly a $1 price tag… and the Army of BTS. The meal appeared on […]

These Are the New Nike Hawaii Dunks

Releasing on Friday, April 23, 2021, are these Nike SB Dunk High Pro themed after Hawaii. This island-inspired SB Dunk High features a traditional floral print to capture Hawaiian vibes—but that’s not all. The first layer of material tears away over time, revealing surprises that further contribute to the shoe’s oceanside motif, including shaggy green […]

Mountain Dew Major Melon Tastes Like a Slurpee

That was my impression of my first taste of the new Mtn Dew Major Melon, charged with Watermelon. Reminded me of a 7-Eleven slurpee – no specific flavor but the general taste/sweetness and the “bite.” Overall, this drink is good, so good that half of the 20 oz bottle is now gone while writing these […]

More COVID Closures

In these Rona times, the closures due to COVID continue to climb. While walking around Ala Moana, I noticed a few more shuttered storefronts. Banana Republic, amazingly, has been closed for some time. Abercrombie for Kids closed its doors. Forever 21 didn’t make it in 2021. Foot traffic at the mall does seem to be […]

Bed, Bath, and Beyond Still Here?

Wait… Bed, Bath, and Beyond is still in Hawaii? I had thought they closed all their locations, but they have a Black Friday ad in the Star Advertiser. And yes, the Pearlridge/Aiea location formerly known as Circuit City is still home to the last Bed, Bath, and Beyond in the 808 state.

Close But Not Quite…

Walking around Ala Moana, I spied these Crocs that looked suspiciously like the recently released Crocs collab with the Grateful Dead, Bad Bunny, and Justin Bieber. Here are the legitimate Crocs clogs. Here’s what I saw at Famous Footwear and Nordstrom. Tie-dye, yellow, and a white Crocs sans jibbitz were in store, but really, the […]

Temporary COVID Closures at Ala Moana

With Hawaii’s Stay at Home, Work from Home emergency order in place, only businesses categorized as Essential Activies remain open. So when visiting Ala Moana, it’s eerily empty with only food vendors and restaurants allowed to operate. Even then, many chose to stay closed. The escalators were also shut down, assumedly to save on operations, […]

Rona Memories: Nitrogenie Ala Moana

Going through Amazon Photos with unlimited storage for Prime members, I came across this picture of Nitrogenie opening at Ala Moana. This photo is dated November, 15, 2015 (and taken with an iPhone 6). Don’t recall how long they lasted, but lines were long for some time.

Rona Shopping at Ala Moana

While shops continue to reopen at Ala Moana, many still remain closed. So when shopping at Ala Moana, it doesn’t have the same feel to it. Returning shoes at Footlocker, you are greeted by these signs and maybe a line if there are more than 15 customers inside. The inside of the Starbucks Reserve is […]
