Where In the Hawaii is Edward Sugimoto? – August 29, 2012

August 29, 2012

Ho, August 29th already… Exactly one month away from this year’s Rice Fest. So fast yeah?

Anyway, sorry (again!), was slammed at work all day yesterday and had one late softball game last night so I could only muster up the energy for one photo this week. I’ll try to respond to last week’s comments soon too!

If you’ve been to this week’s photo location, this one is duck soup. How you like the stealth shot with my arm inside? LOL! Good luck y’all!

Weekly VH07V Updates!

* Here’s a mockup of a couple new colorways I’ve been cooking up. The one on the top will hopefully be ready just in time for football season 8) , while the one on the bottom is a colorway I thought might work well for my friend who is involved with the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure walk. While they can use it as a fundraiser for their team, for any sales I personally make, I could also donate part of the proceeds back to the foundation. All for a good cause. What do you guys think of either of them?

Two new colorways dropping soon!

VH07V SPOTTED!

For this week’s “Spotted“, we got a couple of fans/supporters sending their VH07V all the way from San Francisco’s picturesque Golden Gate Bridge! They are sporting the Blue/White Logo T colorway and the Black/White Logo T colorway.

Weekly VH07V Updates!

* Put in a new order for a new colorway I’ve been cooking up, and also put in yet another “fill-in” order! Things are almost getting to that point where I need to outsource fulfillment services. Luckily, I have friends who do that so if ever I need to, it will hopefully make sense to go with them!

* Another reminder that VH07V will be sponsoring this year’s Rice Fest (duh!) and will produce the office Rice Fest shirt (for sale at the event) and will be the official T-shirt provider for all volunteers.

VH07V SPOTTED!

For this week’s “Spotted“, we got another video sighting of VH07V. Real estate extraordinaire, island entertainer, and all around nice guy Jon Yamasato recently wore his Blue/White Logo VH07V shirt on his popular HI*Sessions Youtube show. Check that entire Youtube channel out! Awesome resource for local Hawaiian music!

Weekly VH07V Updates!

* Ever since columnist Alana Folen covered VH07V in last week’s MidWeek, (new) business has been picking up some steam. Big mahalos to Alana and the rest of the team at MidWeek!

* Moved into my much cozier/spacious/convenient storage space at Hawaii Self Storage. Got a lot more elbow room now to fill up with additional inventory, fold clothes and fulfill orders l’dat! Mahalos to the friendly staff at HSS!

* VH07V will be sponsoring this year’s Rice Fest (duh!), but the even more exciting part is that in addition to having a booth there to sell VH07V merch galore, I will printing up the official Rice Fest shirts for this year which will be worn by all volunteers. Another version of the shirt will also be sold at the VH07V booth with part of the proceeds going back to our main beneficiary: Lanakila Meals on Wheels!

* May have another potential “giving back” type of project in the works, but I don’t really want to talk about that yet in case it doesn’t happen. More on that to come.

* Got some exciting things cooking lately including new designs/styles for shirts/tops, new hats, and more! Speaking of which, here’s another unofficial survey for y’all! What do you guys think of the following hat samples? Will probably go forward with the more popular one(s).

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˜‰

* 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?

Design #1
VH07V Design #1

Design #2

Design #3

Design #4

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

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™‚

VH07V SPOTTED!

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.

Jam-time!

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˜‰

Weekly VH07V T-Shirt Update!

Had a great time at the Big Boys Toys & MMA Hawaii Expo this past weekend. I got to interact with a lot of new fans/customers of the growing VH07V brand, hang out and have a few laughs with friends who helped me at my booth (mahaloz Traci, Reid, Kelvin, Noelle, Lee, Leanne, Dave, Dawn, Evan, Lori, big sis and Kase!), and meet/see a lot of super awesome fellow vendors as well: Mark Pang of The Fighter’s Corner (and his wife Samantha and sister Lisa), Davis Kagawa of Rep Them All, Greg Yamamoto and Arnold from Ev’ryting Taste Betta Wit, Kalani Heatherly (and his loving `ohana) from Kentajes, Aaron Ching from Bikewerkx, Jason Antonio and Jesse Ebersole from P4P Sports, Damien Kahihikolo from Bangah’z Union, uncle and aunty from Green Tea Hawaii (sorry, I didn’t catch their names), and of course, the gang at the Oceanic Time Warner Cable booth! πŸ™‚

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

[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?

Video #1

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!

VH07V Spotted!

This week’s “Spotted” shot for VH07V is of friend and supporter Jody Kamisato. He owns and operates the very popular ukulele school called Ukulele Hale. Jody is also a member of the Na Hoku Hanohano nominated band Heart & Soul, mentors keiki through his Ukes on the Loose program, and has a regular gig in Aulani’s Starlit Hui show every Monday and Thursday.

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™‚

Never satisfied, we’ll be attempting to break our own record for the “Largest SPAM Musubi” at this year’s Rice Fest in September. More info to come when I get it…

Weekly VH07V T-Shirt Update!

This week’s “Spotted” shot for VH07V was taken at the final home game at Les Murakami Stadium when the University of Hawaii Rainbow Warrior baseball team took on the Nevada Wolf Pack. My brother-in-law had choice seats behind home plate and just so happen to be wearing his green VH07V shirt as OCSportsTV televised the entire game live! Pretty cool huh!?

Mahalos Ynaku!

And finally… I wanted to send a quick mahalos to bruddah Ynaku who so generously gave me this box of cookies from Big Island Candies when I met him for the first time IRL yesterday. On top of that he gave me a cute Dora the Explorer bag for my daughter and bought a VH07V shirt to boot! Wow, what a guy! It’s times like these that make me so happy to be able to share this blog space with you guys! Although we may not know each other personally, I honestly feel like we are part of one big family. Mahalos for always tuning in gang!
