As I child I flew a lot and fortunately, most often on Singapore Airlines. While that airline still seems like the best, I discovered a pretty cool airline flying from LA to Honolulu...can you guess which one??
Hawaiian Air!! Where everything is purple!
I saved these purple utensils and put them on my mantel and gaze over at them and cry with joy every few days:
You kill me!
With such pretty pay phones it's no wonder you'd be a meth dealer conducting business from these phones and contributing to the horrific meth (aka ice) problem in Hawaii.
This was the beach, Waikiki Beach, that we couldn't go in because it was contaminated from a recent sewage spill:
Me and my bro, he's tanning, I'm hiding:
There are a lot of old limos that are used as cabs in Hawaii.
First in the series of limo as background is me and the OG (my ojichan-godfather that Jonah nicknamed the OG as in Original Gangster):
Me and my dear obachan-godmother, the classiest, most lovely lady I've ever known:
Me and Syuri, my older godbrother Hiromi's extremely precocious and charming four year old daughter:
Series: Syuri modeling hats in limo:
You have a lot of series in this post, you say?
One of two in the series of her shoving stuff up her nose. She was after my heart:
I only used this earplug once after she did this. And then I threw them out!
The tall building behind the Louis Vuitton store was my favorite.
This is what Syuri thinks of that building and my commentary on it:
This is a Monkey Pod tree. It's the OG of trees.
First in the series of 'When you ask a random person to take a photo for you they'll often suck at it'. What's that space to the right??
My signature shot:
Ed and Syuri had a swingin' time!
Swinging makes Syuri dizzy:
Pineapples come from the ground and not from trees, people!
Brave demonstration for size:
On the biggest tourist trap of an attraction, the Dole Pineapple Plantation Train Tour, I saw the thinnest farmer and horse I've ever seen:
Syuri checking out Ed's panties:
She wouldn't let go:
They made up quickly as everyone should after getting sexually harassed:
And rolled around in bed. Let's hope this is the most rolling around in bed with a boy that Syuri does for a loooong time:
On a road trip to the North Shore...you gotta install the Japanese speaking navigation system!
Americans in the back:
Rainbow front and center!
Tards at Kaihlua Beach:
My younger (of my two godbrothers) godbrother Yasushi, his very tanned skin and two bright floaty things:
Me, my bro and Yasushi's fiance Keiko whom we met for the first time on this trip. Don't worry, we liked her otherwise we would have drowned her.
White smiling girl and Dark smiling guy:
Why do I look pale?
Keiko and Yasushi, very cute and very near:
Keiko and Yasushi, very far:
Garlic Shrimp on the North Shore!!
Truly delicious, shell and all:
Second in the 'When you ask a random person to take a photo for you they'll often suck at it' series.
Here's the OG on the Beach series.
As eyes can tell, the beach is his element:
Look! It's like we're in Japan!
And more ramen! There can never be enough!
Japanese porno. $60 a pop. It's expensive for the good stuff!
Scratch & Sniff it:
Here we are, looking like it's me, my husband and daughter!
Sometimes you forget to zoom back out:
Fancy diner and dinner:
My brother got so spoiled on this trip that he refused to ride with us and rented his own limo to "stretch out his arms and legs". I quickly took a picture before I went back to the other limo:
I fought to have him share his limo to the airport with me:
My godmother and Syuri had folded cranes and instead of throwing them out, my godmother wrote a very elegant note thanking the hotel staff and asking them to please enjoy the cranes - you can't make up this classiness and kindness.
So let me piggyback off that and say thanks for enduring this neverending post!
