Survey Thursday: Favorite Zippy’s?

May 14, 2009

When the answer was revealed during one of our previous Where In Hawaii contests (which was Zippy’s), it was suggested by kuya.d to do a Survey Thursday around that particular topic… So… hurr we are…

We’ve all got our favorite Zippy’s. Our “home base” if you will. This be yo chance to sound off and represent. So without further ado… *clears throat*

Chicky chicky check if your school favorite Zippy’s is in effect – Represent! LOL!

Growing up in H.K. during those “hard core Zippy’s years”, Zippy’s Koko Marina was probably the one I identified with the most. It could’ve been the lunch-pick-up on the way to the beach, the dinner-pick-up on the way home from school/work, the midnight thang after chillin’ at the homey’s crib, or, even the 2AM-er after a long night of shooting 9-ball at Brian’s/Shark’s/Velvet’s (LOL!)… We’d be there. Some close seconds would be the McCully one (that’s usually where the “scenery” was at), and the Kahala one (new and on the way home).

Since Zippy’s is so much a part of all of our cultures, we shouldn’t just limit this survey to locations. What say we open thangs up and share our favorite Zippy’s story/stories as well as our favorite Zippy’s dish(es) while we’re at it? Bonus question: Which Zippy’s have you NOT been to (click here for help or here’s a list: Ala Moana, Dillingham, Ewa, Kahala, Kailua, Kaimuki, Kalihi, Kaneohe, Kaneohe (William Henry Road), Kapahulu, Kahului, Kapolei, Koko Marina, Makiki, Mc Cully, Mililani, Nimitz, Pearl City, Pearl Ridge, Vineyard, Waiau, Wahiawa, Waimalu, Waipahu, Waipio)? I’ll start:

Favorite Zippy’s: Koko Marina (for sentimental reasons)
Favorite Zippy’s Story: I actually applied for Zippy’s back in da high school days and got rejected! How you figgah? Well, I did get called in to their main office for an interview, but never received that final call back… so that is kinda like getting rejected right? So shame! Ah, das ok, I got a higher paying job where I got to eat poke all day (seafood department at Safeway) so it all worked out. 😛
Favorite Zippy’s Dish: Zip Min
Zippy’s Location(s) I’ve Never Been To: Ewa, Kalihi, Kaneohe (William Henry Road location), Kahului, Kapolei, Waipahu. Just 6 out of 25? Not bad at all… 8)

Go get um yo!

Happy Survey Thursday… Woo Hoo it’s almost TGI(F)F!

Oh yeah, for you old older peeps, here’s a blast from the past (70’s) that you might enjoy! No offense! 😉

For those more my age, hea’s a classic (starring Jade Moon). If you’ve never seen either of these two videos, zip it! 😛

My thoughts and prayers go out to hemajang and the Yoshida family during this difficult time… 😦

Fave Five Friday – Scary Movies

February 13, 2009

Since today is Friday the 13th, *insert scary music here* we’re gonna switch gears and take a slight break from our Desert Island FFFridays. This week’s Five? Scariest Movies. How apropos, eh? 🙂

As made obvious by my list, I don’t really get out much when it comes to watching scary movies. Haha! Help a brutha out by sending yours won’tcha?

  1. The Exorcist – the site of little Linda Blair’s spinning head is forever stuck in my memory. What makes it even more scary is the supposed “Exorcist curse” that hovers over everything related to the movie. *shudder*
  2. Jaws – there’s nothing scarier than touching on human emotions that people can relate to. I can’t relate too much to a spinning head, but living on an island surrounded by water, I can definitely relate to sharks. Yikes!
  3. The Silence of the Lambs – holy cr@p! Anthony Hopkins was scarrrry!
  4. Children of the Corn – I don’t really remember much about this movie. I do remember being scared watching it when a friend’s parent’s rented it. Thanks a lot bad babysitters! 😛
  5. Se7en – wasn’t quite sure what to put here, but it was either Seven or Beetle Juice. 😛 The head in the box was an interesting twist though.

Edumacate me by sending yours over mmmkay? Shooooots!

Happy Aloha Friday (and weekend) y’all!
