Jordin Sparks Lights up the Stage!

I had an amazing time at the Jordin Sparks concert at Club Nokia tonight! It was quite exciting to be in a room packed with her screaming fans. Jordin came on stage at 9pm and brought so much energy to the crowd, it was hard not to sing and jump along! I kept the jumping to a minimum though since I didn’t want to drop my camera. ;) She sang every song from her latest album, and through in a few new ones. She also added “No...

Hawaii Prince Hotel Waikiki

I’m staying at the Hawaii Prince Hotel Waikiki and I love the view here. Every morning, I wake up and see this from my window. Lovely huh? And that was taken with an iPhone! I did edited it using PS Mobile, a bit to give it more interest. :) It looks like a miniature paradise...

Kauai 2009: Day 7 – I’m Flying!

Flying in a small plane over Kauai has to be one the most adventurous things I’ve ever done, not to mention my favorite activity (so far) in Kauai! The view from above was amazingly breath-taking! My husband and I did a drive around the island yesterday, and hiked up to a few parts of Kauai… but seeing it from above puts it in a whole new perspective! I can’t say it enough.. it’s simply amazing! It rained a lot...

Oahu 2009: Day 2 – Zenshu

After mochi-making, Ed dropped us off at the car rental place, and we went around, exploring what the island has to offer. Dinner at Zenshu sounded really good! We ordered Sushi platter, which had 6 of the freshest sushi of the day, and the Halloween Roll, which was perfect because it was Halloween! For dessert, we had green tea ice cream. Yum. I give this place 5 out of 5 stars! Great service, delicious food, and great...

Oahu 2009: Day 2 – Happy Hearts Mochi

I got a special treat today. Actually, I MADE a special treat today! Happy Hearts Mochi was kind enough to teach Nerd’s Eye View, Albert, Ed, and I, how to make mochi from scratch! That’s not something I’ve done in Hawaii before! It was so much fun and somewhat messy at the same time. We made the peanut butter and beans mochi. And got to taste the pumpkin, strawberry, and haupia (coconut) ones. The strawberry ones...

Oahu 2009: Day 2 – Hulaween Tweetup

One thing I love to do when traveling is organize Tweetups so I can meet my twitter friends! And going to Hawaii is no different. We had a “Hulaween” Lunch Tweetup on Saturday, Oct. 31st. It’s a good thing that it was on a Saturday because all the kids were able to attend. We had lunch at Nico’s at Pier 38, which is a favorite place of ours ever since @hawaii introduced it to us last year! Anything with the...
