We’re five days away from the start of the second quarter of the year. Ho da fast! Did you guys have Kuhio day off yesterday? How about Good Friday this Friday? If so, this week is shmall kine cruise for you. Woo hoo! LOL!

Work has been pretty crazy lately. Not sure if I’m allowed to talk about it just yet, but let’s just say Oceanic is doing some exciting things in the wireless space this year! Will post more info as soon as I get clearance to talk about it.

Post Your Interview Questions for Chad Owens!

March 19, 2013

OK gang. It’s time to get interactive again and post your questions for another local celebrity… CFL juggernaut Chad Owens! Much like we did for:

I’m trying to work out an interview with pro football sensation Chad Owens in the coming days/weeks (depending on our schedules) and would love to include your questions. So in the comment area below, post the questions you’d like me to ask him.

As a recap, Chad Owens – a former Roosevelt Rough Rider and University of Hawaii Warrior standout – is coming off of an AMAZING 2012 CFL season with the Toronto Argonauts! First, with individual honors, breaking the all-time, single season all-purpose yards record (previously held by “Pinball” Clemons), becoming the first player in professional football to record back to back to BACK seasons with 3,000+ combined all-purpose yards, and then, winning the league’s Most Outstanding Player award! Then, he scored the opening touchdown en route to his team’s 35-22 home win over the Calgary Stampeders in the 100th Grey Cup championship game… All with a broken thumb!!! Here’s his post-game interview. As if that weren’t enough, he is also hard at work, training for his first MMA fight on the April 6th Destiny “Na Koa III” card. Click here for more details on that.

Chad is also a supporter of my Hawaii Lifestyle brand: VH07V. Here he is in his Red/White colorway during a press conference earlier this season.

Where In (the) Hawaii is Edward Sugimoto? – March 6, 2013

March 6, 2013

Sorry for not posting last week Wednesday y’all. In addition to getting owned at work with all kine corp visitors coming in and out, I went out of commission with a stomach flu. 😦 And even though I’m coughing with shmall kine congestion now, my fingers can still move so this post will not be denied! Haha!

Is everybody’s March going a-ok so far? I hope so! I got one month left in my body fat loss competition with friends. This sickness probably didn’t help (I haven’t been able to work out for more than a week now), but hopefully, I can get back to it soon. Anyway, here are this week’s pics! Hopefully, none are repeats. LOL! Good luck!

SCOOPS!

Out of thousands of entries, two of Hawaii’s brightest developers (Ryan Kanno and Austen Ito) were selected to be a part of this year’s StartupBus tour. Their mission? To develop a cool new startup during their bus ride that will debuted at SxSW in Austin Texas! Now that they’ve arrived and are in waiting mode before their projects (readin.gs & jobber.io) are judged, they’re looking to make the biggest social media impact while there. If you could help me support them by going to this link: http://americas.startupbus.com/2013/hawaii-represented-at-startupbus-look-out-for-readingsftw-and-jobberio/ and leaving a comment, they may have a chance to win that award too!

On a side note, both Ryan and Austen will be calling in to Burt Lum and Ryan Ozawa‘s Bytemarks Cafe Radio Show later today to update Hawaii of what they’ve been up to. Tune in to Hawaii Public Radio (web), KIPO 89.3FM (radio) or on Oceanic Time Warner Cable channel 865 (TV) from 5pm-6pm if you have some time! Gooooo Ryan and Austen!
