Where In the Hawaii is Edward Sugimoto? – October 31, 2012

October 31, 2012

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 SPOTTED!

This week’s “Spotted” shot for VH07V features a group shot taken at this past weekend’s Food & New Products Show. VH07V had an amazing weekend and did better here than any other show previously. I’m sure it had something to do with the large attendance that came through there, but I’d also like to think/wish that perhaps it is partially due to the amount of people starting to recognize the VH07V brand more and more. 🙂 Click here to see all photos from the 48th Annual Food & New Products Show.

Weekly VH07V Updates!

* On Sunday, my friend Shari Lau Yoshinaga and her “Team VH07V” team participated in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure at Kapiolani Park. Along with VH07V’s humble donation, she was able to raise $1,353.10 for the foundation, placing #14 out of 299 teams! Amazing job Shari! What a hero! Below are a few pics from that day. Click here to see all photos from the 2012 Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.

* Pretty much set for the mini craft fair this Sunday at Koko Head Elementary School’s Cafeteria. My friends Kari and Julie are setting it up so we’ll have an area there for a few hours if you want to stop by and pick up some VH07V merch.

* A bunch of people were asking if I’ll be participating in the Islandwide Crafts & Food Expo taking place on the Black Friday weekend from Nov 23-25. Part of me wants to, but part of me is pretty burnt out from this past expo. Out of curiosity, I inquired with event producer Caroline Infante so she will be sending me pricing and info for the show. Depending on the cost and how much I have forgotten about how much work it takes for one of these shows (LOL!), I may or may not do it.

* Setting up the online shopping site for VH07V is still TBA. Will hopefully be able to get to that soon!

We at VH07V did our part to support the Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Friend and supporter Shari Lau Yoshinaga raised over $900 in donations for her team. Rounding up, we cut this 10%+ check to take them over the $1,000 mark, hitting their original goal! Look for “Team VH07V” – decked out in Blue/Pink (pictured below) as well as many of the other VH07V colorways – this Sunday at Kapiolani Park.

VH07V SPOTTED!

On Monday morning, Rice Fest received huge, national coverage from the Today Show when they covered both our Guinness World Record breaking attempt for the world’s Largest SPAM Musubi and our SPAM Musubi eating contest. In the piece, our back-to-back defending champion “Uncle Rodney” wore his Red/Gold VH07V tee and got SPOTTED! in the national story. Kinda cool yeah?

Speaking of Rice Fest, I just gotsta take the time to briefly send a big shoutout to my friends who supported me and not only performed at Rice Fest, but also, to my surprise, wore their VH07V shirts. It really warms the heart of a brutha to get such support.

The Good Table Fundraiser

For the last three years, I have participated in a program called “The Good Table”, an island-wide dining event in which tables are purchased at various restaurants across Oahu by groups or individuals who are then treated to a unique and custom dining experience. Proceeds from the sales of these tables go to Lanakila Meals on Wheels, Hawaii’s largest and only island-wide meal service for seniors.

Although it is too late to purchase tables for this year, here’s a little video that I encourage you to watch to perhaps inspire you to consider purchasing a table for next year.


New Article

Here’s a link to my new article called “Kona Kai Sushi – The Izakaya for Locals“. If you read Lawai`a Magazine (a fishing magazine I write for), it may look familiar, as it ran in the last edition.

Weekly VH07V Updates!

* Here’s a mockup of a couple new colorways I’ve been cooking up. The one on the top will hopefully be ready just in time for football season 8) , while the one on the bottom is a colorway I thought might work well for my friend who is involved with the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure walk. While they can use it as a fundraiser for their team, for any sales I personally make, I could also donate part of the proceeds back to the foundation. All for a good cause. What do you guys think of either of them?

VH07V SPOTTED!

For this week’s “Spotted“, we got a couple of fans/supporters sending their VH07V all the way from San Francisco’s picturesque Golden Gate Bridge! They are sporting the Blue/White Logo T colorway and the Black/White Logo T colorway.

Weekly VH07V Updates!

* Put in a new order for a new colorway I’ve been cooking up, and also put in yet another “fill-in” order! Things are almost getting to that point where I need to outsource fulfillment services. Luckily, I have friends who do that so if ever I need to, it will hopefully make sense to go with them!

VH07V SPOTTED!

For this week’s “Spotted“, we got another video sighting of VH07V. Real estate extraordinaire, island entertainer, and all around nice guy Jon Yamasato recently wore his Blue/White Logo VH07V shirt on his popular HI*Sessions Youtube show. Check that entire Youtube channel out! Awesome resource for local Hawaiian music!

Weekly VH07V Updates!

* Ever since columnist Alana Folen covered VH07V in last week’s MidWeek, (new) business has been picking up some steam. Big mahalos to Alana and the rest of the team at MidWeek!

* Moved into my much cozier/spacious/convenient storage space at Hawaii Self Storage. Got a lot more elbow room now to fill up with additional inventory, fold clothes and fulfill orders l’dat! Mahalos to the friendly staff at HSS!

* VH07V will be sponsoring this year’s Rice Fest (duh!), but the even more exciting part is that in addition to having a booth there to sell VH07V merch galore, I will printing up the official Rice Fest shirts for this year which will be worn by all volunteers. Another version of the shirt will also be sold at the VH07V booth with part of the proceeds going back to our main beneficiary: Lanakila Meals on Wheels!

* May have another potential “giving back” type of project in the works, but I don’t really want to talk about that yet in case it doesn’t happen. More on that to come.

* Got some exciting things cooking lately including new designs/styles for shirts/tops, new hats, and more! Speaking of which, here’s another unofficial survey for y’all! What do you guys think of the following hat samples? Will probably go forward with the more popular one(s).

Sample VH07V Hat Design #1
