My old employer, PBEC, calls me back into service Friday night to
photograph a special PBEC/PAAC dinner featuring former Philippine President
Fidel Ramos. Ramos spoke on changes in Japan, the rise of China, and
"America's determination not to be overtaken by any other superpower, or
combination of powers, bar none."

troopers, playing the whole evening through.

Zzz...


The whole family has been flattened by a nasty bug. Alex is so exhaused, he
basically falls asleep anywhere. Here he sleeps soundly after deciding to
try and climb off the couch. As you can see, he didn't get very far.

Vote!


Primary Election Day in Hawaii. While the wife voted absentee at the mall
last week, I always like to hit the polls. It's raining, UH has a game this
afternoon, and primaries in a non-U.S. presidential election years are
always slow... We'll see how much the Akaka/Case and 2nd Congressional
District races do for turnout.

Waikiki Aquarium


A spontaneous Sunday morning stop at the Waikiki Aquarium (after the kids
and I were unsuccessful in talking the peacock-phobic Jen into visiting the
zoo). Even though it's small, I love our little gem of an aquarium.
Energized by a shrimp breakfast, the usually shy octopus ventures out...
and even stalks a toy! Never seen anything like it.

Pinnacle


Construction steams ahead on The Pinnacle Honolulu (pinnaclehonolulu.com),
a narrow, 36-story condo tower squeezed onto a narrow lot at the top of
Bishop Street. At most two units will be squeezed onto each floor,
1,500-square feet selling for $800,000 (lower levels) to $2,895,500
(two-story, mauka facing penthouse). Of course, coming up right across the
street is Capitol Place (capitolplace.com), a gargantuan 39-story monster
that'll blot out the Pinnacle's much touted mountain views.

Haleiwa


Sometimes you just want to hop in your car and drive. After hitting the end
of the road past Mokuleia and turning back, I wound up in Haleiwa. This
beautiful, carved wooden sign marks the way off the new bypass to the east
entry into historic Haleiwa town. Sadly, its counterpart on the west end
was stolen years ago.

Jen's mom and aunt are visiting from Florida. We had dinner at Molly's
Smokehouse in Wahiawa, a rare outpost for the southern palate. The menu was
much reduced (with "DISCONTINUED" scrawled over several items), but what
they did have was still good.
