    k, favorite local kine snack is the dried clams, dried pineapples, spam musubi, red dog musubi, ahi poke, taco poke, pipikaula ribs.
    Plate lunch: dis a hard one...chilidog plate from Rainbow but I like the beef stew from Kaka'ako Kitchen too.
    Favorite hotel is da Prince Waikiki. All da staff there have real aloha spirit.
    Fo da omiyage, dis from da perspective from across da ocean on da mainland...going, I get requests for cookies and granola bars from Trader Joe's; coming back to LA, I bring back poi donuts from Kam Bakery (usually gone by da time I board da plane), Manapua from Libby's (usually same fate as poi donuts), 100% Kona coffee, shortbread cookies, and more dried clams.
    Slippahs, I get Quicksilver right now (I got dem at da Windward Mall). I want Olukai but a bit pricey yeah?
    Kapu...yup, no take lava rocks, no disrupt da heiau, no talk stink about da ancient warriors wen visiting any kine sacred sites, and of course no cut fingernails at night or open wet umbrellas inside da house.

  11. sally:

    Omiyage Did-You-Know:

    You can take malasadas for omiyage. Order them without sugar, take 'um home and freeze. Yah, you gotta make special means of packing 'um but anyway...

    When your recipient is ready to grind malasada, pop it in a toaster oven to reheat then roll in your own sugar.
