So I finally got to visit the new UNIQLO Pop-Up store in Ala Moana, and as expected, it was crowded. For the most part, inventory was good except for this Doraemon shirt that was only available in medium. For a temporary space, this location is big-ish, but it is small for a UNIQLO. To keep […]

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 […]
Flight 23 by Footaction officially took flight on Friday, November 18, 2016 with its grand opening in the International Market Place. Technically, this storefront is not really a retail store. It’s an Air Jordan-focused addon to the adjacent Footaction. The workers roam between the two stores, and all purchases are made at Footaction. But still […]
This is the Ala Moana location that was once Tsukiji Fish Market and Restaurant.
With all the construction and renovation happening at Ala Moana, there are detours and alternate paths shoppers have to take. On one such path, I came across this, and it all made sense. Don’t understand what I’m alluding to? Have you been to Ala Moana in recent history? The holiday shopping season of 2012 was […]
Over the weekend, I had my first exposure to Ice Forest in Downtown. From what I understand, this place is related to Ice Garden in Aiea and has a similar style. Read my Yelp review for the details of my visit. But to summarize, I loved the flavors but not the hugeness of the creations. […]
The vaulted Nike Air Max 95 design is getting refreshed with the integration of engineered mesh. Dubbed the Nike Air Max 95 EM, the modernized EM silhouette has designs named after cities. Here’s the Honolulu version that releases tomorrow. I’m not exactly sure where the Honolulu design connection comes into play, but I’m partial to […]
Any guesses where this huge wooden knife is?
That didn’t long. Those participating in Occupy Honolulu were cleared out of Thomas Square on Friday. On Saturday, this is what I saw.
Did you know you can arrange a behind-the-scenes feeding of animals at the Honolulu Zoo? I don’t know how much it costs, but if you have a function at the zoo (like a child’s birthday party), it’s something to look into. You go in a back area away from the public and get to pet […]
I didn’t know Hawaii serves up gourmet hot dogs, but they’re there at Hank’s Haute Dogs in downtown Honolulu. Located on Coral Street, this little location has some great hot dogs that even the wiener connoisseur will enjoy. I had the Andouille, onion rings, and pineapple ice drink. Yums for the tums! If I go […]
Just a few pictures from the opening day of Iolani’s Family Fair 2007 themed Fiesta Fever. Not bad – stayed a few hours and only spent $20. Didn’t eat a meal there but ate malasadas, played games, and came home with fresh produce and kiddie trinkets.
