Consignment Center in Kahala, Sweet!

The old Tony Roma across from Kahala Mall was never the same after it left.  A few failed businesses and a lot of vacant months seemed a shame, for such a prime location.  Recently, a bright lighted sign would catch Aunty's eye every time she drove by on Waialae Avenue, "Consignment Center - Furniture, Art & Antiques", Ola! It was a gotta-check-out kind of place, and one day, Aunty drove into the very l ...

Ala Moana Hotel auction and update

Aunty was again at the Courthouse steps (actually it is the lanai fronting the courthouse) to try her hand at bidding for an Ala Moana Hotel room unit this Tuesday at noon.  The foreclosure notice was found in the classified section of the Honolulu Star-Advertiser - the bank was due $215,458 with arrears, late charges, etc. Aunty went to its Sunday open house about a month ago, met Jenny the commissioner in ...

Sugru, like Super Putty on steroids!

Aunty loves Sugru.  It can fix almost ANYthing.  It air hardens to a tough flexible rubber in a day.  It is like super glue, polymer clay, and Playdoh, all rolled into one little package.  It is a bit pricey and comes in little bitty blister packages to keep the air out.  It can attach to wood, metal, rocks, plastic, rubber, glass, paper, and almost everything, except air and water. Aunty will update in ano ...

Out, out, dang spots!

(Warning!  This product contains mercury.  Aunty did an update on this issue.) Ever since Aunty turned 50, brown spots started showing up on her face, arms, and legs.  These are sometimes called liver spots.  Whatever they are called, they are unwanted and unsightly, and they started getting bigger and darker on Aunty's cheeks and arm.  Very visually irritating, you know? Aunty tried all kinds of products, ...

Whatcha doing?

Nick Polizzi is the Director at The Sacred Science team.  Aunty forgets how she found them, but it began with watching a documentary that they did in the jungles of Peru, taking 8 very ill people to a healing camp.  No running water, no electricity, bugs and critters, strange rituals, and primitive smashed root and bark meals prepared by people that did not speak their language, at all.  One of the rituals ...

To Lotus, or not to Lotus

2 years ago, Aunty saw a lotus plant for sale at Koolau Farmers.  The flower was huge and simply gorgeous, rising above the water and leaves and smelling wonderful.  It was rather pricey at $75 and Aunty wasn't ready for it yet. Last year, Aunty was ready and went to a lotus repotting class at Mulkern Nursery in Waimanalo on a dreary wet Saturday in February with good friend, Bocho.  It was a great class ab ...

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 ...
