VH07V is featured in this week’s Midweek!

* The other week, I was interviewed by Midweek columnist Alana Folen for a column she writes called “Entrepreneurs”. What an exciting honor! I had no idea when it was supposed to come out until some friends recently started telling me “Congratulations!” I didn’t get my copy in the mail yet, but hopefully soon! Mahaloz Alana! For now, here’s a link to the article online: “New Clothing Line Promotes Aloha” and below is a photo of the article that our very own carokun took and sent to me.

VH07V SPOTTED!

How’s this for a cool “Spotted” shot!? Big Island blogger extraordinaire Damon Tucker wore his VH07V shirt while going skydiving with the folks at Skydive Hawaii. Here’s his blog on the experience, and below is his video. He said he purposely asked them to flip him over – MID-AIR! – to show off the VH07V upside-down! Now that’s a true loyalist! πŸ˜‰


Taking VH07V to new heights! Damon Tucker does his 4th dive with Skydive Hawaii with his VH07V shirt on! Sick!

Weekly VH07V T-Shirt Updates!

* My “fill-in” order to replenish low quantities of existing VH07V stock is IN! I’ve been so crazy busy with everything else though that it’s just been sitting in the boxes at storage for the last week or so. 😦

* Speaking of storage, things have been picking up so much that I’ve had to upgrade the size of my unit at Hawaii Self Storage. Mahalos to the friendly staff there for helping to make the transition an easy one! Photos of the move to come!

* Speaking of things picking up, here’s a fun little thing we recently did through social media. My super talented, yet very unassuming designer friend mocked up four sample designs for VH07V and we put them to a vote. The idea was that if one of them got super good kine response, that would be the next design to be released. It turned out that all designs got about the same amount of positive feedback.

Whatchu guys tink? Maybe you can be the tie-breaker? Which design do you like best? #1, #2, #3 or #4?

So wot? Which one you like? Let me know in the comment section below!

Where/When you can find VH07V in the coming weeks:

WAR SAGE!

This Saturday (Friday Hawaii time), Hawaii’s own Sage Yoshida will be representing us at the “Deep – Tokyo Impact 2012” (alternate link) event at Differ Ariake Arena in Tokyo Japan, as he takes on MMA legend Akihiro Gono in a shoot boxing (rules) match. (Story 1) (Story 2)

I used to train with Sage at HMC Academy where his father Kevin (the co-founder of the school) would coach. Sage was the most humble and kindhearted guy you would ever meet, but when it came down to train and spar, bruddah was a beast! You could just see that fire in his eyes!

Here’s a picture of Sage and his dad Kevin on the flight to Japan and his caption from Instagram. Best of luck bruddah Sage. We are all pulling for you and know you will do us proud! WWE `ohana, please help me send some good vibes to him and his dad during this exciting time in their lives.

“On our way to Japan! Thank you so much to everyone who has supported me, loved me, and pushed me through this throughout my lifetime. I feel so humbled by what everyone had done for me to help me accomplish one of the aspirations and goals I have dreamed about since I was a kid! I’ll be home soon too baby @mmhx3, just gotta do my best to hopefully get that win first πŸ™‚ Love all you guys, God bless ! @kickboxerx5 #ThankYouJesus #Japan #ShootBoxing #DefendHawaii #WorkHardToWin #Humbled”

Weekly VH07V T-Shirt Update!

It’s official. VH07V will be participating in one of the BIGGEST expos of the year: the 48th Annual Food & New Products Show, this October 19-21, 2012 at the Blaisdell! There are 16,000-18,000 people who are supposed to come through that event so it’ll be another good opportunity to get out there and be seen. Seems like it’ll be good timing for those who are looking to get some early Christmas shopping done too. Slowly but surely trying to get out there… Yay! πŸ™‚

This week’s “Spotted” shot for VH07V is of a couple of friends/co-workers sporting some VH07V during the Ford Island 10k Bridge Run.

And finally… here’s a silly clip of fellow WWE’er kuya.d and I (and our friend Pat) jamming some Ka`au Crater Boys when kuya came down to visit the other weekend. Shmall kine winging it (obviously), but we had fun. πŸ˜› It’ll take you down memory lane or give you a good laugh. One or the other. πŸ˜‰

This week’s “Spotted” shot for VH07V is from Saturday night, our busiest night at the expo.

Have a happy VH07V Wednesday y’all! Shoooots!

[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?

Weekly VH07V T-Shirt Update!

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!

And finally… I’m officially a Guinness World Recordsβ„’ Record Holder!

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

We finally received notification back from the Guinness World Recordsβ„’ folks that our record setting attempt for the “Largest SPAM Musubi” at last year’s Rice Fest was made official. Me, along with the other 20 or so volunteers/participants in the building of the musubi got our names in the record books. Cool right? πŸ™‚
