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!

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?

How ’bout that ELECTION!? I’m acting, cause I’m actually writing this before the results came in so I have no idea how it all went down, but I’m sure there were many surprises. Were you happy overall? Who were you unhappy with?

On a side note, how wuz your guys’ Halloween last week? I actually went trick-or-treating for the first time in years. Took da bebe around the neighborhood with some of our neighbors and their kids. Good fun! You?

And, ahahaha! Looks like a lot of you got a kick out of dat old school Halloween pic I posted last week. I should do those more often. Den again, I no like get lickins from my sistah too. 😛

This week, we’ll continue with the easy ones since those seem to be the ones that get the most comment action. Apologies if some of these are repeats. It’s all a blur after all these years. LOL!

VH07V SPOTTED!

This week’s “Spotted” shot for VH07V features a mix of A) being a timely event, B) a VH07V spotting and C) eye candy. 8) On Saturday (Nov 3) the popular Color Run came to town and Sandra Kim of SkimAloha was there to conquer it. Here’s the aftermath of her outfit, including our VH07V Navy/White trucker… at least it used to be Navy/White! 😉

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. 🙂

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.

* 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!

Weekly VH07V Updates!

* Getting physically (and mentally 🙂 ) prepared for my final (I think) BIG show of the year: The 48th Annual Food & New Products Show this Friday (5pm-10pm), Saturday (10am-9pm) and Sunday (10am-5pm) at the Blaisdell Center. Come visit the VH07V booth for an exclusive show special!

* My friend Shari is still jammin’ with the donations for with her Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure team: Team VH07V! If you’d like to donate to her team, please visit the Team VH07V page. If you’d like to join her team for the walk (THIS Sunday, October 21st), you can still register in person at Ward Warehouse in Kewalo Conference Room, 2nd Floor (Wed-Fri @ 3pm-7pm & Saturday @ 9am-12pm) or at Kapiolani Park on race day from 5am-6am.

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.
