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.

Good looking and cool =!

For years, we parked in our driveway with power, telephone, and cable lines overhead across the entire length of the driveway from utility post to a garage that was not usable as a garage.  Being parked in the sun was not great, but it was okay, since we had retractable windshield covers that helped to keep cars cooler during the day. However, it was the dang birds' poop that was not ok ...

Aunty is prezzed!

Awhile back, Aunty spocked President Obama in a motorcade and this sparked a letter to him, which Aunty sent out to the White House. It was sent to Washington, DC earlier in the year, and then forgotten.  Since then, a lot has happened and the political coocooness, stock market roller coaster moves, and life changes continue on. Then, just the other day, a very nondescript pale green envelope came in the ma ...

Eat to starve cancer and obesity

When Aunty was young, which seems eons ago, hardly anyone had cancer.  Now, it seems commonplace, heart breakingly commonplace, and too often - harsh and fatal.  We live in a different time, with different environmental factors as well as different lifestyles, and we need to take charge of our choices before it is too late. This TED Ed talk by Dr. William Li of the Angiogenesis Foundation explains why and h ...

Kahai Street Kitchen = Yum!!!

Remember the old Guri Guri place on the corner of King and Coolidge, then it was HK Drive Inn, then a couple of other places that didn't make it?  It is located just past First Hawaiian Bank and across the Moiliili softball park. Well, it is now the Kahai Street Kitchen, and the food is DA BOMB!  Prices are a little higher than regular plate lunches but it is like eating the top chef local food on styrofoam ...

Take you back

There is a song called the Molokai Slide with the lyrics, "Take me back, (take me back), back to da kine....." that the following film reminded me of.  Nostalgia for those days gone by when Hawaii was more for real than now. This was put together by a talented George Mihal (dunno who that is) and is actually color footage from 1959-1960, which is unusual for that time era since we didn't even have color tv ...

Please visit Honolulu Aunty at the Collectible Show!

It's that time of year, and Aunty will have a booth again at the 26th annual Hawaii All-Collectors Show this coming Sunday, July 17, from 10:30 - 5:30. Last year, KITV interviewed Aunty in her booth.  It was probably because of the hat and outfit - very vintage, very old school, very fun. Aunty has to figure out how to fix this old cut silk velvet cheongsam (holes and tears) and glue some orange chicken fea ...

Why the Hydro Flask

EVERYbody seems to have a Hydro Flask bottle.  Big ones, little ones, fat ones, skinny ones.  Aunty couldn't understand what the hype was about and figured that it was just a fad.  Plus, they were rather pricey - $23 for the small ones and $30+ for the bigger ones! Instead of a Hydro Flask, Aunty had a cute slim aluminum thermos looking bottle with a screw on lid and screw on cup.  This was taken to seminar ...

Cute funny

Just for laughs Teacher: "If I gave you 2 cats and another 2 cats and another 2, how many would you have?" Johnny: "Seven." Teacher: "No, listen carefully ... If I gave you two cats, and another two cats and another two, how many would you have?" Johnny: "Seven." Teacher: "Let me put it to you differently. If I gave you two apples, and another two apples and another two, how many would you have?" Johnny: "S ...

Aunty’s computer posture – fix!

Aunty's posture has been deteriorating - maybe because of entering the older lady phase of life, but maybe not. TaiChi is helping with balance.  Still, poor posture from sitting hours at the computer watching Korean dramas, blogging, inputting into Quickbooks, google searching, checking emails, etc. etc. etc. was taking its toll.  Playing Kuku-Kube (thanks or No thanks to Jalna, lol) has really made Aunty s ...

Make you KuKu

One of Aunty's favorite daily escapes is going over to Jalna's blog and seeing wassup.  (see? Aunty can do hip talk too!) Jalna's latest is about her score on a game that Aunty got hooked on for the last hour or so, as evidenced by an overworked right hand and mouse and for some odd reason, a very exhausted and sore left arm. It is called kuku kube - a game of color - lasting exactly 1 minute long, though i ...
