Congratulations Chad Owens!

November 26th, 2012
By



Please help me send a HUUUUUGE congratulations and Aloha to Bruddah Chad Owens for his AMAZING 2012 CFL season with the Toronto Argonauts! First, with individual honors, breaking the all-time, single season all-purpose yards record (previously held by "Pinball" Clemons), becoming the first player in professional football to record back to back to BACK seasons with 3,000+ combined all-purpose yards, and then, winning the league's Most Outstanding Player award! Then, he scored the opening touchdown en route to his team's 35-22 home win over the Calgary Stampeders in the 100th Grey Cup championship game... All with a broken thumb!!! Bruddah is UNREAL and deserves all the best! Here's his post-game interview.

Chad contacted me (VH07V) through Instagram complimenting the brand. We chatted a bit through email and I eventually asked for his address so that I could send him some apparel as a Mahalo! He was nothing but nice with CHOKE aloha so it makes me soooooo happy that all this success is coming to him. I wish I could take credit for his success this season (like the "power of VH07V" gave him good luck or something... LOL!), but it was all him! Hard work pays off!

Here he is supporting VH07V during a press conference earlier this season.

Brisbane Australia, Here we come!

As mentioned last week, I have been invited (as a "social media influencer") on board Hawaiian Airlines' inaugural flight to Brisbane Australia departing this week. Like some of Hawaiian's previous inaugural flights (Tokyo, Osaka, Fukuoka, Seoul, New York City and Sapporo), there will be a fair amount of hoopla surrounding this flight and I'm pretty excited.

Catherine Toth, Melissa Chang and Edward Sugimoto (Photo Courtesy: Brandon Suyeoka) I'll likely miss posting this Wednesday's "Where in Hawaii" blog, but there will still be posts galore being made during the two night trip to Queensland. If you're interested, you can follow along with all the Brisbane merriment through the following links. Rumor has it that Melissa Chang and Catherine Toth will be going on this trip as well! Awesomeness!

BIG NEWS!

As part of the "local media", I have been invited on board Hawaiian Airlines' inaugural flight to Brisbane Australia departing in a couple of weeks on the 27th. It will be the only nonstop flight there from Hawaii and the second to Australia (Sydney being the other city) through Hawaiian. My social media friends and counterparts got to enjoy some of the previous inaugural flights Hawaiian took (Tokyo, Osaka, Fukuoka, Seoul, New York City and Sapporo), and I could only live vicariously through them, so getting the opportunity myself is pretty dang exciting and quite humbling. Look for some Australian pics & posts from me along the way mate. And if you have any suggestions on what to do or eat, let a brutha know!


My AroundHawaii Article for November

In the past, I've done ramen, poke, pho, shave ice, acai and more, but I've been asked to do this one on numerous occasions so I thought I'd finally put it together... Saimin Adventures - The Search for Hawaii's Best Saimin - Part I. Check it out when you have some time and let me know if you have any suggestions for additional saimin joints to hit up!

VH07V SPOTTED!

This week's "Spotted" shot for VH07V features a super talented, local photographer and friend Marc Orbito. Marc, who is the man behind Hungry eYe Photo, took this shot of himself with the Blue/Green colorway because he kinda blended in with the Apple Store Geniuses. Funny with the timing as we just wrapped up a family photo sesh with Marc, and if the one photo he sent over is any indication (he also did my VH07V photo shoots at Kaka`ako Kool & Rainbow Drive In), I know the rest of the photos are gonna be off the hook... as expected! Contact Marc/Hungry eYe Photo for your photographic needs k?

How 'bout that ELECTION!? I'm acting, cause I'm actually writing this before the results came in so I have no idea how it all went down, but I'm sure there were many surprises. Were you happy overall? Who were you unhappy with?

On a side note, how wuz your guys' Halloween last week? I actually went trick-or-treating for the first time in years. Took da bebe around the neighborhood with some of our neighbors and their kids. Good fun! You?

And, ahahaha! Looks like a lot of you got a kick out of dat old school Halloween pic I posted last week. I should do those more often. Den again, I no like get lickins from my sistah too. :P

This week, we'll continue with the easy ones since those seem to be the ones that get the most comment action. Apologies if some of these are repeats. It's all a blur after all these years. LOL!

VH07V SPOTTED!

This week's "Spotted" shot for VH07V features a mix of A) being a timely event, B) a VH07V spotting and C) eye candy. 8) On Saturday (Nov 3) the popular Color Run came to town and Sandra Kim of SkimAloha was there to conquer it. Here's the aftermath of her outfit, including our VH07V Navy/White trucker... at least it used to be Navy/White! ;)
