Style Book app

2 weeks ago, at Michael Mazzella's free Jam session on real estate flipping in Hawaii, Aunty saw Margaret, a fellow real estate investor friend.  We did a bit of girl talk chat after the session and Aunty mentioned Marie Kondo's book, "The Life Changing Magic of Tidying" and how it was truly changing Aunty's life.  (Post to come, one day soon.) Well, Margaret went home, downloaded the book and took to it li ...

How much internet speed do you need?

Aunty gets confused whenever computer/internet numbers are spouted for gigabytes of space, ram, speed, etc.  We currently have Oceanic Time Warner for our cable/internet connection and occasionally use our iPhone's internet connection when Oceanic's system acts up (quite often). Sometimes, Oceanic sends our flyers about getting more speed, for free, and even more, for a few dollars more each month.  Current ...

Buying a piece of Ala Moana Hotel

Aunty used to go to a lot of marketing events at the Ala Moana Hotel, parking at Ala Moana Center by Macy's, which was a no-no but everyone did it without any hassle.  From there, a short walk up a ramp took us into the ballroom section of the hotel. Rumours Night Club just off the lobby is a hoot!  Aunty is not into the nightclub scene but decided to join some friends years ago during the happy hour.  We h ...

Swap Meet up for Bloggers

A long awaited day arrived this morning at the Kam Swap Meet with  Art and Kay of Musings and Jalna & sisters of Photos by Jalna. This was an EARLY morning meeting, which Aunty is NOT good at, but, when the incentive is there, Aunty manages to crawl out of bed with the chiming of an alarm, down her cereal and coffee, gather what needs gathering, and out the door in many minutes flat.  Having tattooed ey ...

A perfect steak

Once in a while, Aunty loves a great steak.  One that is a little bit crusty outside yet soft and slightly juicy inside. Most of the time, we would cook them outside on a hibachi grill after salting and seasoning with Canadian Steak seasoning (from Costco).  It would almost always be great, but it was a bit of a hassle making the fire and getting the charcoals just right hot.  This also took quite a long ti ...

What is YOUR Calling?

Aunty went to a HiMa (Hawaii Internet Marketing) meeting this week.  Aunty joined a few months ago - not sure why since Aunty is a non-techie, non geekie, non-social media type - but the folks that run it are super nice and they always have pizza and water, and interesting subject matter. The recent meeting was about finding our life's purpose.  What a big topic - but, what the hey, if anything, there would ...

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 ...
