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.

Instead of shoes…

Sometimes Aunty has to brush the dirt off her shoulder, so this will be the beginning of "Auntyisms". Aunty cannot understand shoeaholics since her 2 pairs of Crocs are her go-to foot wear.  Crocs have the advantage of comfort, style, and long lasting durability.  The 3 year old black pair and 1 year old cheetah print pair will last forever and keep Aunty in style, iao (in Aunty's opinion). Joe (name change ...

When Aunty gets sick…

It has been years, maybe even decades, since Aunty got sick.  This week, Aunty got sick and felt like she was a 100 year old near dead dog. However, there are actually some good things about getting sick.  One of them is having empathy (the ability to feel what others feel) when other people are sick.  It feels like the pits.  Sore throat, sore body, weak, depressed, listless, headachey, junk. Another is be ...

Tattooed, POSHd, and pooped

Today was a totally full day.  Pal Wandaful picked up Aunty and off we went to Ji's Skincare over in Aiea for our tattooed eyeliner touch ups (will post about that another time), then over to Aiea Bowl for their delicious oxtail soup with amazing homemade ponzu sauce. We visited Wanda's handsome sons for some kalamunggay branches (will post about the wonders of the kalamunggay another time), and then headed ...

Spam Kim Chee for dinner

Almost 40 years ago (man, Aunty is old), we used to do craft fairs at our homes with friends.  Ann Kondo Corum was a librarian at Kawananakoa School and had just published Hawaii's Spam Cookbook.  She is a super fantastic artist and each page has her delightful cartoon drawings related to each dish.  Since she was selling her cookbooks as well as doing original art cards to order, Aunty made her Korean Styl ...

Tap tap tap to feel good

Decades ago, Aunty took tap dance lessons from Jack Cione with pal Cookie and Gayln.  It was fun making feet noise in time with other feet in the room, but it wasn't a life passion for any of us. During a tidying session (still to come: Aunty's review of Marie Kondo's Life Changing Magic of Tidying), Aunty found 2 thick print outs of Jack Cione's dance steps and songs.  These did bring a sense of joy becaus ...

May be Magic Socks

Aunty went to Shirokiyas to buy a finger massager to give to her favorite masseuse, Dick Murakami of Hikari Shiatsu.  These are available in a tucked away spot behind the massage chairs and next to eyewear. A really cute and friendly salesclerk cheerfully helped Aunty.  She looked like Ha Ji Won of Korean drama fame - starring in Secret Garden, The Time that I Loved You 7000 Days, and many others.  She shar ...

No get huhu

You know the feeling - getting huhu is when you get all mad and ticked off.  One of Aunty's jobs is answering the phone, like a dispatcher or receptionist.  Most people are nice - especially sales people until you inform them that you aren't interested in claiming your millions of dollars from the Reader's Digest sweepstakes. Some people are quite rude because they only want to speak with the boss instead o ...

Wanna Roomba?

Aunty Mimi got a Roomba from Costco.  Pal Cookie also got a Roomba from Costco around Christmas time with a $50 off coupon special. Big deal - how good can it be, right? Well, according to them, it is wonderful.  Their floors are always clean.  The little feeler whisker spinners clean  around table legs and furniture.  It is cute and goes back to its "dock" when it needs to recharge.  It just keeps on worki ...

Answer the question, please.

There was drama of the highest OOPS! factor during the 2015 Miss Universe pageant with Miss Columbia being first tapped, then untapped as the winner, and Steve Harvey becoming the biggest blunder man on the planet. Aunty used to watch these pageants in the past, but stopped watching decades ago.  It happened after an episode in which each contestant was asked the same question.  Each of them took a breath, ...
