Ho, August 29th already... Exactly one month away from this year's Rice Fest. So fast yeah?

Anyway, sorry (again!), was slammed at work all day yesterday and had one late softball game last night so I could only muster up the energy for one photo this week. I'll try to respond to last week's comments soon too!

If you've been to this week's photo location, this one is duck soup. How you like the stealth shot with my arm inside? LOL! Good luck y'all!

Weekly VH07V Updates!

* Here's a mockup of a couple new colorways I've been cooking up. The one on the top will hopefully be ready just in time for football season 8) , while the one on the bottom is a colorway I thought might work well for my friend who is involved with the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure walk. While they can use it as a fundraiser for their team, for any sales I personally make, I could also donate part of the proceeds back to the foundation. All for a good cause. What do you guys think of either of them?

Two new colorways dropping soon!

* Another reminder that VH07V will be sponsoring this year's Rice Fest (duh!) and will produce the office Rice Fest shirt (for sale at the event) and will be the official T-shirt provider for all volunteers. If you're interested in volunteering on September 29th from 11am-7pm, holla atcho boy! :)

VH07V SPOTTED!

For this week's "Spotted", we got a couple of fans/supporters sending their VH07V all the way from San Francisco's picturesque Golden Gate Bridge! They are sporting the Blue/White Logo T colorway and the Black/White Logo T colorway.

Weekly VH07V Updates!

* Put in a new order for a new colorway I've been cooking up, and also put in yet another "fill-in" order! Things are almost getting to that point where I need to outsource fulfillment services. Luckily, I have friends who do that so if ever I need to, it will hopefully make sense to go with them!

* Another reminder that VH07V will be sponsoring this year's Rice Fest (duh!) and will produce the office Rice Fest shirt (for sale at the event) and will be the official T-shirt provider for all volunteers. If you're interested in volunteering on September 29th from 11am-7pm, holla atcho boy! :)

VH07V SPOTTED!

For this week's "Spotted", we got another video sighting of VH07V. Real estate extraordinaire, island entertainer, and all around nice guy Jon Yamasato recently wore his Blue/White Logo VH07V shirt on his popular HI*Sessions Youtube show. Check that entire Youtube channel out! Awesome resource for local Hawaiian music!

Weekly VH07V Updates!

* Ever since columnist Alana Folen covered VH07V in last week's MidWeek, (new) business has been picking up some steam. Big mahalos to Alana and the rest of the team at MidWeek!

* Moved into my much cozier/spacious/convenient storage space at Hawaii Self Storage. Got a lot more elbow room now to fill up with additional inventory, fold clothes and fulfill orders l'dat! Mahalos to the friendly staff at HSS!

* VH07V will be sponsoring this year's Rice Fest (duh!), but the even more exciting part is that in addition to having a booth there to sell VH07V merch galore, I will printing up the official Rice Fest shirts for this year which will be worn by all volunteers. Another version of the shirt will also be sold at the VH07V booth with part of the proceeds going back to our main beneficiary: Lanakila Meals on Wheels!

* May have another potential "giving back" type of project in the works, but I don't really want to talk about that yet in case it doesn't happen. More on that to come.

* Got some exciting things cooking lately including new designs/styles for shirts/tops, new hats, and more! Speaking of which, here's another unofficial survey for y'all! What do you guys think of the following hat samples? Will probably go forward with the more popular one(s).

Sample VH07V Hat Design #1

VH07V is featured in this week's Midweek!

* The other week, I was interviewed by Midweek columnist Alana Folen for a column she writes called "Entrepreneurs". What an exciting honor! I had no idea when it was supposed to come out until some friends recently started telling me "Congratulations!" I didn't get my copy in the mail yet, but hopefully soon! Mahaloz Alana! For now, here's a link to the article online: "New Clothing Line Promotes Aloha" and below is a photo of the article that our very own carokun took and sent to me.

VH07V SPOTTED!

How's this for a cool "Spotted" shot!? Big Island blogger extraordinaire Damon Tucker wore his VH07V shirt while going skydiving with the folks at Skydive Hawaii. Here's his blog on the experience, and below is his video. He said he purposely asked them to flip him over - MID-AIR! - to show off the VH07V upside-down! Now that's a true loyalist! ;)

Weekly VH07V T-Shirt Updates!

* My "fill-in" order to replenish low quantities of existing VH07V stock is IN! I've been so crazy busy with everything else though that it's just been sitting in the boxes at storage for the last week or so. :(

* Speaking of storage, things have been picking up so much that I've had to upgrade the size of my unit at Hawaii Self Storage. Mahalos to the friendly staff there for helping to make the transition an easy one! Photos of the move to come!

* Speaking of things picking up, here's a fun little thing we recently did through social media. My super talented, yet very unassuming designer friend mocked up four sample designs for VH07V and we put them to a vote. The idea was that if one of them got super good kine response, that would be the next design to be released. It turned out that all designs got about the same amount of positive feedback.

Whatchu guys tink? Maybe you can be the tie-breaker? Which design do you like best? #1, #2, #3 or #4?

August 1st, 2012
By



Sorry peeps, it's been another one of those crazy days weeks months YEARS! :P

Spent most of my week on mayjah kine concalls at work in addition to trying to finish up my August article for AroundHawaii, so I nevah had time fo put togeddah this week's Where In Hawaii game. Gomen yeah?

Anyways, here's a little snippet from that article that went live earlier today at midnight. In the comment area below, share with us who your favorite lunch wagon is!

Yajima-Ya Lunch Wagon Revisited

The last time I covered the Yajima-Ya Lunch Wagon (located off of Sheridan Street near Keeaumoku), the majority of their menu items consisted of the noodle (soba or udon) and don (rice bowls) variety. Since then, they've expanded their menu to include well received plate lunch style items like teriyaki or mushroom chicken, steak, and a Japanese style beef stew called Hayashi Rice. I figgah now's a good time as any to pay chef Tomoki Ito a (re)visit to see what's new... with a little food p0rn/eye candy of course!

One of my favorite (and incidentally one of their most popular) dishes here is the mushroom chicken. Made with egg and tempura flour, the breaded crispiness of the chicken is offset nicely with the rich "graviness" of the rue. With a side of spinach and Japanese style mac salad, this one is fo' real kine brok' da mout'!

Prepared in a similar way sans the gravy, is their Teriyaki Chicken plate. Love the touch with the Furikake over the rice!

Another favorite of mine is the Hayashi Rice Plate (the Japanese style beef stew). Here's a shot of that gem.

Wifey likes their Buta Shougayaki (Pork Ginger) plate, which is strange because she's not a fan of ginger. In fact, neither am I, but we both can sure whack this buggah like that. Here's a shot of Yajima-Ya's combination plate with Pork Ginger and Wafu style New York Steak w/ponzu...
