Kaka`ako Kool – Keepin’ Kool in Kaka`ako

July 1, 2013

Now that we’re in the midst of summer, we’ve gotsta find ways of cooling off from that hot Hawaiian sun. One way, of course, is to slurp down a local fave known as “shave ice” – or “ice shave” if you’re from the Big Island πŸ˜‰ (See my article about other shave ice places here). The place I love to go to get my shave ice fix whenever I’m in town is Kaka`ako Kool on Queen Street, next to Fresh Cafe.

Opened in June 2010 by antique and collectible fan Keith Tanaka, Kaka`ako Kool is chock full of, well, antiques and collectibles. They sit right alongside the many other offerings Kaka`ako Kool serves like cold drinks, ice cream, chips, crack seed, and much more. It’s like a cool, urban mini mart that happens to sell ono shave ice.

Tanaka goes to the swap meet at least once a week and displays his finds throughout the store. People actually come to the store regularly specifically to see what new toys Tanaka has brought in.

For their shave ice offerings, there are about 25 different flavors to choose from with strawberry being the most popular. Store Manager Jana Park says that the tropical flavors like Pineapple, Mango, and Lychee also do quite well.

In addition, you can order locally made, premium haupia or vanilla ice cream, azuki beans, mochi balls, condensed milk, snowcap (condensed milk & evaporate milk), or lihing powder to go along with your shave ice.

So the next time you’re in need of a shave ice fix to beat that summer heat, stop by and say hi to Jana folks at Kaka`ako Kool. There’s lots of parking with 2 stalls right in front and about 15 or so in the garage to the left of the store.

For further info, here’s a profile video the Skinny Hawaiians did on Kaka`ako Kool.

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!

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?

[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?

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!

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

On Sunday, we had our very first photo shoot for the VH07V line and I’m supah excited to see how the photos came out! We shot wifey’s two cousins (brother and sister combo) in a very Hawaii-ish Shave Ice scene. Here’s a look behind the scenes. Looks legit right? πŸ˜‰

VH07V Photo Shoot at Kakaako Kool
VH07V Photo Shoot at Kakaako Kool

Special mahaloz to the following, in no particular order:

  • Jana and Kaka`ako Kool for allowing us to shoot on your property and for feeding us your bomb shave ice! (Give them a visit at: 831 Queen Street, Honolulu, HI 96813, Mon-Fri: 8am-6pm, Sat:11am-4pm)!
  • Marc Orbito of hungry eYe photography. Email him for your photographic needs: marc (at) orbito.net
  • C & K (probably shouldn’t name them πŸ˜› ) for being my cute models and their parents (our uncle and aunty) for being supportive of the new VH07V venture.
  • Todd W for letting us borrow your bench for the shave ice scene.
  • Wifey and bebe for hanging out and being patient during the shoot. 8)

Barring another delay, my new order of 200+ additional shirts is supposed to be pau today! Hopefully, I’ll be able to pick up what I’ve been waiting for a month for, so I can continue my grass roots efforts of sales and distribution out of the trunk of my car. πŸ˜› In anticipation of selling from my booth at the upcoming Hawaii Ocean Expo, I’ll probably be ordering another color combination or two, in addition to keiki sizes and a possible style for da wahine out dea. Exciting!

As mentioned above, I’ll have a booth at the 2012 Hawaii Ocean Expo, happening on April 21st (9am-7:30pm) & 22nd (9am-5pm) at the Blaisdell Exhibition Hall! Come on down and visit me and/or tell your friends and family too k? And remember, if I still didn’t get to you 6 remaining VH07V Free T-shirt Winners, I’ll have them for you at the booth. Just come on down! πŸ™‚


Have a happy VH07V Wednesday y’all! Shoooots!
