Aunty

Aunty is a new senior citizen and loving this phase of her life. Less responsibilities, less fear of being weird, able to do more of the things that I want to do! Older, yes, slower, yes, but life is even more wonderful in my golden years and I look forward to even goldener ones.

Be Be Cream = mercury bummers

Aunty was all excited to share her age spot busting discovery (thanks to Pal Cookie/Lee) in the inexpensive pink plastic Be Be Cream from Cambodia.  Truly, it worked!  Aunty's age spots faded to the point of wonderful - and people who got up close and touchy (face massage, hair dresser, etc.) would tell Aunty that she had beautiful skin, woo hoo! HOWEVER, a comment from reader Yuko on a recent post about mo ...

Your magic number for retirement

Michael Ford of the Palm Beach Letter (highly recommended) recently covered figuring out your magic number for retirement.  Aunty likes to live comfortably - but it doesn't just happen.  Most people fall into 2 categories when it comes to figuring out their retirement needs:  1) procrastinators - those that put off or don't really want to face what will be, and 2) pluckers - those that just pluck numbers ou ...

5 morning stretches – so easy, and they work!

One of the better health newsletters that Aunty subscribes to is Live in the Now.  The articles that arrive in my inbox are daily, and quite interesting.  The sales copy of its Stop Aging Now product line which correspond to health issues are compelling.  The "deals" are enticing.  More times than not, Aunty takes the bait and orders from them. The latest is a topical skin treatment with vitamin C that soun ...

And da winnah for Aunty’s SUV is……

This is the first time that Aunty took so much time and effort in finding her perfect next vehicle.  Usually, it is a one stop deal for a car that catches Aunty's fancy, and then surprising Uncle and kids with it in the driveway. This time Aunty wanted a compact SUV that had a power lift gate, looked good, smelled good, drove well, and was quiet.  Also, it had to have a lane change assist feature that would ...

Your personal & family info website, much too visible

Short note:  Aunty will be making her compact SUV decision on Sunday.  So exciting!  Meanwhile, here is some info on preventing prying eyes: Pal Fay and #2 daughter both sent messages on the same day about FamilyTreeNow.com.  This is a website that gathers info from who-knows-what sources and then lists your date of birth, family members, known associates, places you used to and currently live in or own.  A ...

Compact SUV reviews- part 3

2017 Buick Encore Lithia (who dat? don't know) owns the Honolulu Buick, GMC, and Cadillac dealership on Nimitz Highway near the airport.  Another cute young salesman greeted Aunty with a shy smile and respectful handshake.  Gordon Rivera was his name, and instantly Aunty liked him because he was not going to b.s. Aunty into buying a vehicle from him, but he was there to show Aunty what she wanted to see. We ...

Compact SUV reviews- part 2

2016 Mazda CX-5 (2017 not available yet) Mazda of Honolulu is located on Ala Moana Boulevard where the go carts used to be for a short time.  A friendly young man waved as Aunty drove in to test drive a CX-5.  This was the instantly likeable Leo Kim, who was more than happy to let Aunty check out their vehicles and ask a lot of questions.  The first question was, "Does it have a power lift gate?"  Answer, " ...

Aunty’s compact SUV reviews, part 1

Aunty has bought cars.  A lot of them, because for some reason or another, Aunty's current vehicle becomes outdated or lacking, and then the search is on for another vehicle. 2 years ago, Aunty bought a Subaru XV Crosstrek from Jace Sadowski at Kaimuki Subaru.  It was just the right size, super cute and cool looking.  Also, it was a Subaru - known for its reliability and high resale value.  It was a smart d ...

Aunty met Kini Zamora!

Because Aunty doesn't have tv service, she hasn't watched Project Runway, even though her friends have raved about it and insisted that she get with it. Meanwhile, the Hawaii Stitchery and Fibre Arts Guild that Aunty used to belong to (it was our once a month opportunity to dress up) had Kini Zamora as the guest speaker/artist on January 4, 2017.  That was last night, and Aunty and friends went to a packed ...

Looking forward to 2017

Lani Kwon, a life coach that Aunty had the pleasure of listening to, sent Aunty an email with a link to an insightful article, entitled "Let go or be dragged into 2017". Based on numerology, the numbers 2, 0, 1, 6 add up to 9 - which is a very fiery, emotional, intense number that also signifies the end of cycles with sudden shocks, dramatic endings, and tying up loose ends. Which will lead us into 2017. Th ...
