Good Friday, WIH Photos, Poke and More!

April 2, 2010

(Sorry I’ve been MIA gang. Deadlines have been killin’!)

Now I know many of you are probably pullin’ a little MIA action yourselves today due to Good Friday, but for those of you still around, or for those of you Mad Maxes checking in from beyond workdome, here are some random tidbits to help pass your time…

WIH Photo

On WIH Wednesday, I cropped the photo just a weeeeee bit too tight. It proved to be too much for y’all, so I brought it back a lil’. Shortly thereafter, rayboyjr quipped, “… hahahaha … you made it so easy now!!! … you sure this not one April Fool’s joke!!! …

D’OH!

Oh well, at least we got a winner out of it! Ha!

For those of you curious bees out there, here’s the full shot:

Poke Paradise - Experiencing the Best Poke Around Hawaii - Part IV
Tama Maru Boat In Tamashiro Market

Recogmatize um now? Yep, it’s Tamashiro Market. Just one of many stops on my endless pursuit for the state’s best poke. Speaking of poke…

Poke

Part IV of my Poke Paradise series went live yesterday. In it, I have interviews with Rachel Haili of Haili’s Hawaiian Foods and Guy Tamashiro of Tamashiro Market (above), and I also pay a visit to Hilo’s own, Poke to Your Taste. Click on the image below to ch… ch… check it out…

Talk to me!
* Ever been to Haili’s Hawaiian Foods in Kapahulu? How about their Backyard Luau lunch wagon in Ward? Like um? Prefer one over the other?
* How often do you go to Tamashiro Market? Do you go there for the seafood, various goods, poke, or all of the above? Preferred poke from Tamashiro?
* I would ask where your favorite poke locations are state-wide, but I’ve already done that one before: Fave Five Friday – Poke Locations. LOL! But feel free to share more if ya like. I can always take one for the team and force myself to eat new poke for my Poke Paradise series. 8)

I guess that’s a good a place as any to end things…

Have a Happy Good Good Friday and weekend and I’ll see ya on the flip side. Shoots! 🙂

Where In Hawaii is Edward Sugimoto? – April 29, 2009

April 29, 2009

Supah big mahalos to all of you for your kind words on yesterday’s bloggy blog and for telling me that WIH was one of your favorite blogs. To show my appreciation, I will special post your favorite Where In Hawaii blog on this non-Wednesday. Oh, it’s Wednesday? Oops. At least the thought was there right? 😉

Last weekgetITon got the place correct, but the dish incorrect. But since this is WHERE in Hawaii (and not WHAT in Hawaii like NeedaHobby suggested) (let’s)getITon is da big winnah! Congrats yo!!

If any of you know anything about me, this one will probably be pretty easy, as I go here often. That’s all I’m-a-gonna say. Ack, I said too much. Go!

MMA Dish (some of you mentioned an interest in MMA so I’m putting a feeler out there. 😛 )
* Anyone heard of this Fedor vs. Shinya Aoki matchup? Can’t find it anywhere on TV. Not even HDNet. Are they airing it? I know it’s interesting for the fans, but isn’t this just a lose-lose situation for Fedor?
* Anderson Silva vs. Forrest Griffin has been booked for the UFC 101 card. Picks? Thoughts on Silva’s last performance?
* Thoughts on Michael Bisping’s cocky attitude on this season of TUF?

Kage‘s peepers were the sharpest last week with the very specific “Corner of Kapiolani and McCully. Its that small park across the 7-11” guess! Please help me congratulate Kags.

Even though this week’s photo is on super-duper zoom, I got no words (again) for you. 8) You and I both know it’s gonna be another easy one right? 😛

NeedaHobby took her first one home after correctly guessing “airport” in last week’s contest! Not bad for something that looked like “chocolate chip cheesecake” (according to snow)! 😛 Please help me congratulate sistah Hobbz!

A-ight, I’m gonna make this a lil’ easier for all y’all this week. The shot is wider and shows a lot more, but I’ll also guess that for this one, you’ll recognize the area, but won’t be able to come up with the words to describe it. Muhahaha. Nah, knowing you smaht buggahs, you probably will anyway. I think I’m less tricky than I thank.

Ready, set, GUESS!

Last week, miLL-viLLe stayed up late and correctly guessed Spaghetti Factory! Guess the Parmesan cheese and weird light fixtures gave it away eh?

So this week’s one won’t be so easy gang… at least I think. It’s another zoomed in, cropped out shot that could be anywhere in the world Hawaii yo!

Nuff talk? Fine! Go getum cuz!

Today we’re gonna let our emotions go while sharing our deepest, darkest secrets with one another around the virtual camp fire…

You’ve gots ta be kiddin’… Wednesdays = Where In Hawaii Wednesdays and I sure as heck can’t let all 10 of you down, naw-mean!? 😛

Last week, sistah snow got back to her winning ways by correctly guessing Zippy’s. She even scooped on the bonus points by guessing Zip Min too. Sheez, “Next Stop” expert eh snow? 😉

I’m pretty sure this week is another easy one, but I guess we’ll just have to wait and see right? Go getum!

Either Takeshi (kun) had really quick eyes last week, or he already knew the answer to our WIH contest: Little Seoul Korean Restaurant. Please help me congratulate Takeshi-kun. Omedetou!

Funny side note: I recently drove by Little Seoul on the way to Wal-Mart, only to find out that the sign doesn’t even look like that anymore. Oh well. At least you gotum! 😛

A-ight, no more animated GIF hints for you this week, as it’s pretty much a gimme. I even tried to crop the photo to make it a little more difficult, but it’s still pretty dang obvious. LOL! Pretty much the first person to check this after 12:00AM midnight will be the winnah. Bonus points for da one(s) who can name what “dish” this is and which location dis stay. 🙂

As suspected, last week’s WIH game was pretty duck soup as Bruddah jack correctly guessed Mai Tai early on. This week won’t be as easy gang, but to help you out a bit, I’ve animated the restaurant’s sign for a split second into the picture. LOL! For those of you who drive by this area, you may recognize it.

I’m giggling just picturing some of you staring intently into your computer screens, trying to catch the wording on the sign! 😛 Sooooo worth possibly giving the answer away. Hehe! Anyway, hurr it is. Enjoy this week’s one y’all!

Like Sistah skycastles last week, Bruddah frankie earned his first WIH victory by correctly guessing Coffee or Tea last week. And, even though he went to Kalani, we’ll put his name on the list of winnahs anyway. I keed of course. 8)

This week’s photo is pretty easy I think. Pay close attention to the photo surroundings. Oops, I said too much-go! 😉

Sistah skycastles got her name on the board for the first time (surprisingly) by correctly guessing California Pizza Kitchen last week. Shucks (but props) to zzzzzz for mentioning it in general conversation. 😛

This week’s photo is another one of dem “I hope they’re still there” shots. *blush* Haven’t been there in a while, but I think they’re still popular with the young folk. Post your guesses below yo!

And oh-by-the-way, the Top Chef reunion show is tonight! Thanks for the reminder tita leerz! Even if you haven’t been watching (like me), check it out, cause the WWE readers seem to be crazies of the show. There’ll be talk about it tomorrow fo’ sho. Top Chef (“Andy Cohen hosts a candid gathering of season five’s chefs and judges”) – Wednesday, March 4th from 7PM-8PM on BRAVO (Oceanic Digital Channel 0560).
