Had a fun time hanging out with some old & new friends last night. You may even reconotice _____ Chang and _____ Toth above from the ol' blogging days on the Honolulu Advertiser. Awwww, the memories...

Fellow Ramen fanatic _____Suyeoka (middle) rounded up a bunch of us foodie types to experience ______ Ramen one more time before it closes. Can you guess where it is?

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?
