    Hawaii Vacay Day 4: Day Before the Wedding

    Day 4 of our Hawaii trip was probably the most relaxing day. we woke up, had breakfast and as the bride’s request, we drove her around to the wedding venue to ease her from her anxieties.  Jamba Juicing while waiting for the bride to be ready. We originally thought we would be driving her right after breakfast but it turns out that we had to wait several hours before she was ready to go. Which honestly wasn’t a problem because both arthur and I were pretty tired by day 4 and needed some rest. We watched a couple episodes of Arrow on the hotel TV before deciding to go…

    Hawaii Vacay Day 3: Hiking Diamond Head and Ala Moana Mall

    We started off day three with a hike on Diamond Head Monument with Arthur, his sister, 4ii’s husband and me.

Again, I was feeling a little bit bitter about my car rental decision because it was a good thing that we walked because we got to see the scenery and also, there wasn’t much space to park at the aquarium. The entrance fee was $12…

    Hawaii Vacay Day 1: The flight and Arriving.

    I didn’t get much sleep before my flight to Hawaii, it’s a good thing that the flight is later in the afternoon. In fact our flight is actually at 6 PM but we decide to leave early because we want to arrive by the time Arthur’s sister arrives at SeaTac airport. Arthur’s sister is flying in from Santa Anna. Apparently she got a connection flight in Seattle because it was the cheapest. And because she’s flying in to Seattle, we decided to book the same flight she’s in from SEA – HNL. By the time we arrive at SEA there were no lines at the security check so breezed right through…
