O'ahu - Did I tell you I LOVE Hawaii?

After spending a few days in Kona, we flew to O'ahu!

Unlike Kona, Honolulu is very crowded, a lot of people everywhere, but we don't really care....

strolling along Waikiki everyday, or go deep into the neighborhood scouting on zillow for prices of the apartments few blocks away from the beach

take a few steps from our hotel to Royal Hawaiian Center for nightly Hawaiian music...

taking Ukulele lesson...

eating Sushi everyday, I mean good Sushi... and I am not the Sushi Connoisseur here, the non-Asian guy is, I am the opposite, I love SPAM!!!!!

so we had to find myself the best Musubi cafe in Honolulu. Spam Musubi is definitely the marriage of American and Japanese..... I love it!

Life was perfect until Saturday morning....

Ok, I got up from bed and get dressed, grabbed my backpack, which I know I have my wallet and passport in there, and then I throw the car keys and house keys into the bag, put on my shoes and off we go, out of the hotel room to the lobby, it was a mess, some people were crying, probably cannot find their loved one, most people followed the hotel staff and went to the basement, DH insisted to stay outdoor, he thought it would be safer, I remember texting my girls back and forth, and then 20 something minutes later......

Seriously? Someone push the wrong button that morning?
I need more "clicks" to change the password for my email account then to sent a missile threat alert to the whole state of Hawaii!!!!! seriously????

after that, I asked DH what did he grab when we first got the alert, guess what? Not his wallet, not his passport, it was his diet mountain dew!!!! LOL!!! : 0
Well, his explanation was, if we get into the shelter, it could be hours, he needs a sip of soda of course, or he would be thirsty! LOL!

Despite the missile scare, we had the nicest vacation ever. Every minute of it was amazing! I loved it!


Before I go, just another card I made a while ago for CCCB that requires Mushrooms, I wasn't happy with this one so I made another one to post for that challenge instead, so tell me what you think about  this one!

Bye for now, have a great weekends everyone.
Stay warm, stay safe wherever you are!

City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 395 ~ At the Tearoom

I am back from Hawaii, and I already miss those beautiful islands......

the only bonus back here is that I am with my sweet Papi....

we finally found a good pet sitter, my friend Kim's daughter Adalynn. She loves Papi and come to our house everyday to play with him. I also set up 4 indoor cameras on top of my pet cube, so I can see Papi in every corner, you won't know how much your dog misses you when you are gone until you monitor, it kind of break my heart when I saw him looking at my empty chair and then cried, sometime he even howled, I never really heard Papi howl before, guess he was looking for his pack. Poor boy! : (


The theme is "At the Tearoom", check out challenge details HERE!

I love tea, and having tea time with girlfriend is the best!

Come on and check out our challenge this week at City Crafter Challenge Blog
