[VIDEO] Where In the Hawaii is Edward Sugimoto? – May 30, 2012

May 30, 2012

I think last week’s video was a bit too difficult because, although we had a handful of Facebook shares via the blog, the comments/guesses were unusually low.

I had another food video queued up and ready to go for this week, but to avoid another slow comment week (hopefully), we’ll try something a lil’ different (yet again). If this doesn’t work, we may just have to go back to good ol’ fashioned photos again. LOL!

The quiz for the video is still the same (guessing Where In Hawaii this is), but you also get to enjoy a bit of “entertainment” while you’re at it. I use the term “entertainment” loosely because it’s yet to be determined if the video is actually entertaining to you. Ahahaha! LMK what you think (good or bad) in the comment area below k?

Weekly VH07V T-Shirt Update!

New VH07V Photo Shoot at Rainbow Drive-In!

Once again, Marc Orbito of Hungry eYe Photo continues to impress. Following up our last VH07V photo shoot at Kaka`ako Kool, I hired Marc to help shoot our next scene at the iconic Rainbow Drive-In. With the help of fellow blogger and friend Catherine Toth, I was able to get permission from owner Jimmy Gusukuma (Toth’s friend) to shoot some scenes there for VH07V. Wow, much mahalos Cat and Mr. Gusukuma! What an honor!

Below is a shot from Marc’s collection from that night! Unreal yeah? Can’t wait to see how the rest of the day’s shots turned out. To hire Marc for your photographic needs, be sure to contact him via his Facebook page here: Hungry eYe Photo!

VH07V Spotted!

This week’s “Spotted” shot for VH07V is of friend and supporter Jody Kamisato. He owns and operates the very popular ukulele school called Ukulele Hale. Jody is also a member of the Na Hoku Hanohano nominated band Heart & Soul, mentors keiki through his Ukes on the Loose program, and has a regular gig in Aulani’s Starlit Hui show every Monday and Thursday.

And finally… I’m officially a Guinness World Records™ Record Holder!

Well, I can’t take all the credit, but it’s pretty exciting nonetheless. 😉

We finally received notification back from the Guinness World Records™ folks that our record setting attempt for the “Largest SPAM Musubi” at last year’s Rice Fest was made official. Me, along with the other 20 or so volunteers/participants in the building of the musubi got our names in the record books. Cool right? 🙂

Never satisfied, we’ll be attempting to break our own record for the “Largest SPAM Musubi” at this year’s Rice Fest in September. More info to come when I get it…

Weekly VH07V T-Shirt Update!

This week’s “Spotted” shot for VH07V was taken at the final home game at Les Murakami Stadium when the University of Hawaii Rainbow Warrior baseball team took on the Nevada Wolf Pack. My brother-in-law had choice seats behind home plate and just so happen to be wearing his green VH07V shirt as OCSportsTV televised the entire game live! Pretty cool huh!?

Mahalos Ynaku!

And finally… I wanted to send a quick mahalos to bruddah Ynaku who so generously gave me this box of cookies from Big Island Candies when I met him for the first time IRL yesterday. On top of that he gave me a cute Dora the Explorer bag for my daughter and bought a VH07V shirt to boot! Wow, what a guy! It’s times like these that make me so happy to be able to share this blog space with you guys! Although we may not know each other personally, I honestly feel like we are part of one big family. Mahalos for always tuning in gang!
