Happy Thanksgiving!

November 27, 2013

Yeah, I’m a day early, but since many of you are probably out of the office and “unplugged” for the week, I’m not sure how many people will actually be reading these blogs today. For those of you who are still here though, here’s a little something (something) hilarious for you that I saw on Buzzfeed to help you get ready for Thanksgiving. Ahahahaha!

(Where In Hawaii pics will be back next week.)

2013 Pro Bowl Weekend with Victor Cruz

January 30, 2013

You’ve probably already heard about Time Warner Cable’s #ProBowlCatch campaign which encouraged fans to vote for Victor Cruz to get onto the 2013 Pro Bowl roster. The campaign was a huge, viral sensation garnering over 1.33 million views through three videos.

Earlier this week, prior to the game, Hawaii’s Oceanic Team had the honor of catching up with Victor in an exclusive interview as he relaxed at the JW Marriott Ihilani Resort with his family on Friday.

The following day, Oceanic Time Warner Cable, along with the NFL Network, sponsored the Pro Bowl VIP Party at Wolfgang’s Steakhouse at the Royal Hawaiian Center, which was all part of the Pro Bowl All-Star Block Party held in Waikiki that evening. Here are some scenes from the night.

On Sunday it was game time, where Victor showed off his hands, catching 10 receptions for 96 yards and a touchdown en route to a lopsided 62-35 NFC win over his AFC rivals. What a fun Pro Bowl weekend here in Hawaii. Victor Cruz and Time Warner Cable… helping all of us Enjoy Football Better.

BIG NEWS!

As mentioned last week, I have been invited (as a “social media influencer”) on board Hawaiian Airlines’ inaugural flight to Brisbane Australia departing next week. Like some of Hawaiian’s previous inaugural flights (Tokyo, Osaka, Fukuoka, Seoul, New York City and Sapporo), there will be a fair amount of hoopla surrounding this flight and I’m pretty excited.

Catherine Toth, Melissa Chang and Edward Sugimoto (Photo Courtesy: Brandon Suyeoka) I’ll likely miss posting next Wednesday’s “Where in Hawaii” blog, but there will still be posts galore being made during the two night trip to Queensland. If you’re interested, you can follow along with all the Brisbane merriment through the following links. Rumor has it that Melissa Chang and Catherine Toth are gonna be on this flight too! Awesomeness!

This week’s “Spotted” shot for VH07V features a nicely edited video from the fellas at 130 Plus 0.

You’ll see VH07V sprinkled throughout since we were the official clothing sponsor of the event.

BIG NEWS!

As part of the “local media”, I have been invited on board Hawaiian Airlines’ inaugural flight to Brisbane Australia departing in a couple of weeks on the 27th. It will be the only nonstop flight there from Hawaii and the second to Australia (Sydney being the other city) through Hawaiian. My social media friends and counterparts got to enjoy some of the previous inaugural flights Hawaiian took (Tokyo, Osaka, Fukuoka, Seoul, New York City and Sapporo), and I could only live vicariously through them, so getting the opportunity myself is pretty dang exciting and quite humbling. Look for some Australian pics & posts from me along the way mate. And if you have any suggestions on what to do or eat, let a brutha know!


My AroundHawaii Article for November

In the past, I’ve done ramen, poke, pho, shave ice, acai and more, but I’ve been asked to do this one on numerous occasions so I thought I’d finally put it together… Saimin Adventures – The Search for Hawaii’s Best Saimin – Part I. Check it out when you have some time and let me know if you have any suggestions for additional saimin joints to hit up!

VH07V SPOTTED!

This week’s “Spotted” shot for VH07V features a super talented, local photographer and friend Marc Orbito. Marc, who is the man behind Hungry eYe Photo, took this shot of himself with the Blue/Green colorway because he kinda blended in with the Apple Store Geniuses. Funny with the timing as we just wrapped up a family photo sesh with Marc, and if the one photo he sent over is any indication (he also did my VH07V photo shoots at Kaka`ako Kool & Rainbow Drive In), I know the rest of the photos are gonna be off the hook… as expected! Contact Marc/Hungry eYe Photo for your photographic needs k?

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

As you can tell by the above, I’m a bit excited. This may actually be the first time that a WIH post landed on Halloween. You guys got big plans?

No Halloween parties for me these days. Getting old already. LOL! For the first time in my life, I will actually be going Trick or Treating around the neighborhood… as a parent! Crazy right? A bunch of us neighborhood friends (all new parents) will be taking the keiki around the ‘hood for some treats. Mellow kine, but should be fun seeing the expression on the kids’ faces.

Speaking of kid expressions, here an old school pic I dug up. The sister will probably not appreciate this, but here you go anyway. 😛 I figgah it’s a good opportunity for captioning. Have fun!

VH07V SPOTTED!

This week’s “Spotted” shot for VH07V features a video from Canadian Youtuber Jason Johnston, who has a unique (and inspiring) story himself. Jay and his wife visited Hawaii years ago and completely fell in love with the islands. At the age of 35, after hitting rock bottom (in debt, overweight, injured & unemployed), he embarked on a 5 year plan of attempting to change his life and move to Hawaii for a period of 1 year (watch his intro video). His plan, appropriately named Hawaii Four-0 (for when he turns 40 years old), has gained a steady following on Youtube and is a great inspiration for many of us to aspire to.

Jay first reached out to me via the VH07V Facebook page inquiring about ordering some stuff. I guess, because of his love for Hawaii, it just spoke to him. Since then, we’ve been messaging each other back and forth, even planning on a night with some beers once he gets here. He’s a really nice guy and you can’t help but root for him and his goal. The video below is his latest, where he talks about the gear I sent him and about being featured on fellow social medialite “@AlohaBruce” Fisher’s web site: Hawaii-Aloha.com.

Weekly VH07V Updates!

* My friend’s mini craft fair at Koko Head Elementary last Sunday actually went a lot better than I had anticipated. I only brought one item per color/option and within the first hour was out of many things. Sorry to those who wanted things I was missing. I’ll catch ya later.

* Still undecided on whether or not I should get a booth at the Islandwide Crafts & Food Expo taking place on the Black Friday weekend from Nov 23-25. I might want to concentrate more on the Christmas rush and finally setting up that online shopping cart.

* Speaking of which, I’ve been able to make a little progress on setting up the online shopping site for VH07V. Will hopefully have more to report soon!

* VH07V is quickly approaching 1,000 Fans on Facebook. If you want a chance to win a $100 Shopping Spree, be sure you’re one of our first 1,000 Likers. 🙂
