Lunch


Lunch at Nico's at Pier 38 (1133 N. Nimitz Hwy.). Jen had the furikake pan
seared ahi (rare) with ginger garlic cilantro dip, and I had the chef's
daily special (don't recall what it was, but it was delicious!).

Toro Nagashi


Toro Nagashi, or lantern offerings, is a traditional Buddhist ceremony.
Usually held during Obon season in the fall, here in Hawaii, the event is
blended with Hawaiian and American traditions and held on the beach at
Magic Island on Memorial Day. Candles are set in paper and wood lanterns
bearing the names of the dead, and they are set afloat on the ocean. This
year, Jen and I honored my late grandmothers, Hanako Ozawa and Irene
Caitano Henderson.

Apple Store MySpace Mayhem


Taking a class near Ala Moana affords me the luxury/agony of visiting the
Apple Store every day. One phenomenon that's been impossible to miss has
been the unending stream of teens coming in to use the new Macs' built-in
iSight cameras and Apple's nifty Photo Booth effects software. MySpace is
the primary destination of the resulting images. A saleswoman confirmed
that their store is now a genuine teen destination and meeting place, as
they get dolled up, sashay in, and mug for the camera over and over. She
says spring break was a madhouse, and that summer will probably bring a
whole new flood of kids. We now chat regularly about particularly elaborate
poses or outfits.

The other top hobby? Checking out school fights on YouTube.com.

Backyard


Alex helps keep grandma's new backyard tidy. It doesn't look like much, but
you should've seen it a month ago. The whole yard looked like the Amazon,
overgrown with thick weeds (that had basically evolved into trees), broken
pots, rotting lumber and tons of mosquitos, a legacy of my late grandmother
and her late intemperate dogs. A helpful neighbor and his friend helped us
clear it out over a couple of busy weeks (in addition to other odd jobs).
It was a Mother's Day project, but the kids are the real beneficiaries,
having a backyard to play in for the first time since moving into Mililani.

Construction


The view from my computer training classroom in the Ala Moana Pacific
Center (on Kapiolani Blvd.). This huge lot, mauka of Ala Moana Center, will
soon be home to a full Nordstrom store, among other shops and restaurants.

Liberty House and later Macy's fought tooth and nail to keep Nordstrom out
of Ala Moana Center, as written in their lease agreement. The solution for
landlord General Growth? Build it next to the mall, and connect it. It's
not "in" the mall, then, now is it?

Lost


Score! A hike at Makapuu Point on the southeast shore of O'ahu nets
incredible access to an elaborate "LOST" set. Don't worry, I was able to
take many more photos with my main camera too. The security guard was
remarkably polite... Can't wait for the season finale!
