Fave Friday - Hawaiian Treat (Desert Island Edition)

April 23rd, 2010
By

It's been a while, but let's take a stroll back on memory lane and buss' another Desert Island game/survey. Y'all know how it works so I won't get into too much detail explaining it, but fast kine, these are things that you just can't live without if stuck on a desert island, like, for-EVA.

Today's Desert Island item: "Hawaiian Treat".

You can interpret "treat" howevah you like cause it could be anything from food to a foine female (or handsome hunk), but the rule is that it's gotsta be "Hawaiian".

* Poke would be the easy/expected answer from me, but after 5 straight months of non-stop poke-ing, as well as yesterday's news about salmonella poisoning, I'm gonna mix things up and not be so predictable (for once). :P

Hmmm... I really like Haupia and Kulolo, but I think I'd get large (and in charge) eating that errry day. I LOOOOVE Lau Lau, but I wonder if I'd get tired of it after a while... I guess then, I'd choose:

* Chicken Long Rice.

It could pass as a soup dish, a noodle dish, AND a chicken dish... enough to keep me interested at least for a little while I think. Oh yeah, and

* Primo Beer and
* an ukulele

Those count as "Hawaiian" right?

Holla!
* What are the "Hawaiian Treats" you'd bring to our Desert Island? If you say a "Hawaiian" genie in a bottle with three more wishes, I'm gonna die. :P
* Thoughts on yesterday's NFL Draft? How did your team do? Thoughts on Tyson Alualu at #10? Am I the only one who thinks Tim Tebow will prove his doubters wrong?
* Thoughts on the NBA playoffs? Isn't Kevin Durant just a beast!? Feel sorry for Portland? (First Jordan, now this?)
* Thoughts on Roy Halladay's even-better-than-expected, awesome start for the Phills?
* Thoughts on Jeremy Lay leaving the UH Men's Basketball program and all of the other activity coach Gib Arnold is up to?
* Gonna order WEC's first PPV event: Aldo vs. Faber? Who you pickin'? I say Aldo still. Also, not sure if they're gonna air it, but don't forget to root for local boy Brandon Visher on the undercard.
* Any exciting plans for the weekend?
* Did you see Brian Kownacki and his Fordham Flip?


I think we're gonna be helping wifey's friend with wedding stuff as well as possible house hunting/browsing this Sunday. If you own or know of anyone who owns a reasonably-priced crib in town (Oahu), holla! WWE special discount? 8)

Happy VHO7V Friday! Have a good weekend y'all!

    Um, Ice Shave (FBI Style) Is it still Hawaiian if get azuki beans?

    Limu poke

    Kalua pig

    lomi salmon

    and that girl in the Kim Taylor Reece pictures!


  2. Coconut Willy:

    Tim Tebow? Dunno, I don't think he will be a superstar. He'll probably float around the league for a long time though.

    NBA. Durant did well for me in fantasy last year. Pro ball doesn't interest me much though. Orlando if anybody would be my team of choice.

    I like what Gib Arnold is doing with the Rainbows though. It looks promising for the program.

    MMA. Nah, not my bag.

    Just gonna chill this weekend, starting tomorrow. Just finished working 10 out of the last 11 days.


  3. matt:

    I think, if i was stuck on a desert island and could have anything from hawaii, I'd take the Hokulea w/full crew.

    if gotta be stuck there, then maybe a bunch of pigs and a bunch of mehana.


  4. bB:

    i could live off.........

    kalua pig
    lomi salmon
    chicken long rice
    poi
    poke
    primo
    ocean vodka


  5. bB:

    for the house, i know someone who can help you help you out. let me know if you need info.

    aldo is awesome, but i'm pulling for faber.

    of course i want visher to win. he was pretty impressive in his last fight.

    not going to order this one, cause still gotta recover from the bj penn fight bill. i wish the ufc or oceanic would make some kind of package for mma fights. make it more affordable.


  6. frankie:

    Tim Tebow for the win!


  7. kuya.d:

    Hmmmm?

    1) Helena's pipikaula
    2) Menehune water (you said desert island)
    3) Ted's Bakery Chocolate Haupia pie
    4) my uke (so Ed can teach me fo play)
    5) Raeceen Woolford (what!? so we can play vball)
    5a) Yasmin Dar (to do the "traffic" report ... Haha!)


  8. che:

    Pipikaula

    What happened to the Vikings first round pick? What did they get for trading it away.

    Durant is good but who is this Westbrook? He's a beast as well.

    Halladay has been doing this in Toranto the past 4 or 5 years but no one noticed. He was always my number 1 pick in fantasy baseball.

    Lay wasn't as good as advertised. I hope the new players can turn the team around.

    Good luck with the house hunting.


  9. kuya.d:

    - Tyson Alualu, Cal Bears represent! Top 10 money!

    - Durantula ... The new Kobe antidote?

    - Halladay ... any doubts?

    - MMA, bleh =p (lose money those ppv events, sorry)


  10. kuya.d:

    @che - Russel Westbrook played at UCLA, he's just this lil ball of energy always ready to move. OKC got him in the first round the year after they got Durant.

    - don't sleep on Jeff Green, James Harden, and Serge Ibaka either ... all young, hard-workers.


  11. Scott:

    ed, you guys looking for a house or condo, or open to both options? either way, hope your budget is around half a mil, or there ain't squat in Honolulu. Good luck!


  12. uncle jimmy:

    Haupia, Haupia cake from King's, like kuya, Ted's Haupia/Choc Pie..

    ack-chally taro isn't bad, but, if you fix it like they do for da keikis..

    wut else, hmmm, wut will i ack-chally eat at a luau? oooh, not much dat's not obligatory, excep' mebbe chicken long rice..

    at las' count, we have five ack-chul Hawaiians in da family..

    descendents of Irmgard them.. Mihana is my fave in-law..


  13. uncle jimmy:

    hmmm, yeah, fun to watch Da T'undah take down da Lake Show.. ken we see it one mo' time please?

    da phlyers take down da devils, nice (but hockey is aftah my Pilly time)..

    Silly Pills starting pitching is looking very solid with Ole Man, Da Kyd, an' Col' Ham all shutting out..

    Back end still weak.. can't wait for JC an' Mole to get back.. but if it wasn't hard, it wouldn't be Pilly baseball, no?

    so kuya, wut choo figgah, many Fils root for Phils because of da name? :lol:


  14. NeedaHobby:

    Five things are not enough. Lau lau, kalua pig, lomi salmon, poi, squid luau, haupia, kulolo ... and Shawn Ching ... ;)


  15. World Wide Ed:

    * 1.Coconut Willy:

    * 2.Coconut Willy:

    * 3.matt:

    LOL! Smaht strategy matty!

    * 5.bB:
    for the house, i know someone who can help you help you out. let me know if you need info.

    Shoots, I'll email you aftah dis.

    not going to order this one, cause still gotta recover from the bj penn fight bill. i wish the ufc or oceanic would make some kind of package for mma fights. make it more affordable.

    LOL! I thought you meant recover emotionally. The package thing is a good idea, but I don't think it's up to Oceanic (UFC calls the shots on that one I think). I'll go check anyway though. I would probably buy that too das why! Haha!

    * 6.frankie:
    Tim Tebow for the win!

    Yeah? Sounds like you and I are the only ones on the Tebow train frankie. :P

    * 7.kuya.d:
    4) my uke (so Ed can teach me fo play)

    Pshhh, I wish. LOL!

    5) Raeceen Woolford (what!? so we can play vball)

    Ahahahaha! Speaking of her, saw her on Hawaiian Grown Kitchen one time and she was a natural. Real comfortable in front of the camera.

    * 8.che:
    Lay wasn't as good as advertised. I hope the new players can turn the team around.

    Bet! *crosses fingers*

    * 9.kuya.d:
    - Halladay ... any doubts?

    Nope, but amazing how he's made the AL-NL transition so easily. Then again, it's the NL. Haha, nah!

    * 10.kuya.d:
    - don't sleep on Jeff Green, James Harden, and Serge Ibaka either ... all young, hard-workers.

    Had Green for a little while on my team, but dumped him when making a push in the playoffs. Took champs with this lineup. Whatchu think?

    Nash
    Terrence Williams
    Brandon Roy
    Pierce
    Granger
    Dirk
    David Lee
    Zach Randolph
    Gooden
    Aldridge
    Bargnani
    Taj Gibson
    Yi Jianlian

    Main categories I aimed for were 3PTM, PTS, REB and AST. Woo hoo!

    * 11.Scott:
    ed, you guys looking for a house or condo, or open to both options? either way, hope your budget is around half a mil, or there ain't squat in Honolulu. Good luck!

    Hahaha, I hear ya Scotty2Hotty! Prices are insane in the membrane. What makes things worse/harder is that ideally, I'd like to be able to hang on to the crib we have now, but I know it's probably impossible. :(

    * 13.uncle jimmy:
    hmmm, yeah, fun to watch Da T'undah take down da Lake Show.. ken we see it one mo' time please?

    LOL! I'm witcha ooj, but we're in Hawaii (Lakertown), so we bettah watch our backs! :P

    i know he from kalihi...i guess he does count.


  28. kuya.d:

    @che - whatever you smoking, share with Ed!

    Nah! But Pierce?! ... He's past his prime. Liked him back in the day when was him and Antoine Walker.


  29. kuya.d:

    @tit - RRRROTFL!!!


  30. kuya.d:

    @Ed - brah! Isaiah Thomas couldn't lose with that team. One word ... STACKED! What elementary kids you was playing with? Nah-nah!

    I got lucky because on my Fantasy bball teams I got Tyreke / Curry / Jennings on most of my teams this past season. Nobody paid attention to the rooks.

    Keep an eye on Terrence Williams / Jrue Holliday / Darren Collison / Ersan Ilyasova / Jonas Jerebko. All on the upswing next year.


  31. kuya.d:

    @bB - what about Malia Jones / Alana Blanchard / Nani Cockett / Jenn Boneza?


  32. kuya.d:

    @Tit - my coworker at my campus job was dating Shawn Ching when he was Shawn Alivado back at manoa.


  33. che:

    kuya.d., I'm a die hard Celtics fan. Pierce is better than Kobe or LeBron the same way Bird was better than Jordan or Magic. :D


  34. kuya.d:

    @che - my brother is a C's fan like you. I love Rondo's game, he helped one of my fantasy teams.


  35. uncle jimmy:

    heck, even da Celtics team name is mispronounced.. :lol:

    so, hopin' for anuddah Thunder-dog victory tonight..

    nice to see B-Roy back for the Blazers.. kick da Suns a couple times mebbe..

    if you're not rooting for da underdog, what fun is there in sports anywayz???
