Today I saw a beautiful sunset while on my walk at Ala Moana Beach Park.
Yesterday was my 9th birthday. We are celebrating today at Dave and Busters with Hello Kitty red velvet cupcakes with pink cream cheese frosting.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MICH’LAE!!!
I wanted to create an iPad stand that was cheap or close to being free. So I used Lego pieces from a kit that I purchased recently and created this. I am very excited to put it to good use. Thanks LEGO!
It is was a treat to see the sun setting on three days this week.
Hawaii is a beautiful place with great sunsets. I was reminded this week to appreciate the beauty around me…

Last week, I had a nice dinner with some new friends from Emerald Isle, North Carolina. We went to a local restaurant called Ono Hawaiian Foods. First time in Hawaii and first time trying Hawaiian food.
Here are some things that they tried:
Photo 1 – Combination Plate at Ono Hawaiian Foods
Photo 2 – Laulau (pork shoulder wrapped in luau leaves and ti leaves cooked in an imu or pressure steamed)
Photo 3 – Poi (made from the taro root) and White Rice
Photo 4 – Squid Luau (cooked octopus legs with young taro leaves and coconut milk)
Photo 5 – Lomi lomi Salmon (Diced tomatoes, diced onions, salted cooked salmon and garnished with green onions)
Also in the combination plate: pipikaula (dried pork meat), haupia (a coconut dessert), and kalua pig (underground oven pork).
A great website with detailed information about Hawaiian food can be found here.
