Aloha Aloha! Day Seven

Tuesday, October 25th

With only 2 hours to return the car and head to the airport, there wasn’t enough time to try the popular Eggs n’ Things on Kalakaua Avenue. We had driven by many times to see hordes of people blocking the door away. I was bummed that I didn’t get to try it. Instead I resorted to McDonald’s local breakfast plate. A Styrofoam plate with 2 slices of Spam, 4 slices of Portuguese Sausage, scrambled eggs and rice. This was actually very tasty. I really wish McDonald’s supplied you with Furikake packets. Does anyone know where I can get Portuguese Sausage?

As I sat on the plane for that 5 hours, images of Hawaii flashed by me. Images of…

Waikiki Beach
Ezogiku Ramen
ABC Stores
Macadamia Nuts at the ABC Store
Foie Gras
Shrimp Truck
Hanauma Bay’s Turtles
A really hot girl I saw at the beach
The ABC Store by Rai Rai ramen
Shaved ice

Shaved ice
Portuguese sausage
The Poki Pines at Alan Wong’s
The ramen menu at Ezogiku
A turtle waving at me
$100 bill
Macadamia Nuts
Our shitty car rental
The ABC Stores at the airport

And as I saw the familiar lights of Los Angeles, I became depressed knowing that in a few hours, I would be stuck in traffic, smelling the smoggy air of Los Angeles, sitting
in front of the computer hammering away at ads, emails and instant messenger. I absolutely dread coming back to the workplace and reading through the armada of emails.

But I’m delighted to provide you with this detailed article on my wonderful trip to Oahu. I will definitely be back soon. Thanks for reading.

That breakfast was from McDonalds??? DAMN! When can they serve that here in the contiguous states? Probably never. Too bad, I'd go to Mickey D's for that dish.

Dylan - Portuguese Sausage can be bought from Marukai - my favorite brand is Purity (hot), but many prefer Redondo's

Reid did a post about McDonald's:

REPS (rice, egg's, and port sausage) are a way of life....

Elmo, the breakfast was damn good. one of these days, i'm going to have to prepare myself a hawaiian style breakfast like that.

Kirk, thanks for the info. the closest Marukai to me is in Lil' Tokyo, and i'll definitely try out both kinds of PS.

i wonder if McD's in Hawaii will ever make a Spam McMuffin. Mmmmmm....

Hi Dylan,

I'm glad you had a nice time in Hawaii. We'll be very happy if you do come back again sometime soon! Good luck with your future and we hope to see your name up in lights...

Spam McMuffin. That sounds intersting. I think I'm going to make that at home sometime. Thanks for the idea!

I love that every McDonalds around the world has different menu offerings. In Germany, McDonalds offers bratwurst and beer; in Taiwan, you can order a toasted rice burger. Looks like Hawaii's breakfast menu is pretty tasty.

I also looked at your NRM posting, and dang! That looks good!

Man, it looks like you had a blast in Hawaii even though it got off to a SLLLLOOOOW start with that Ramen. I've never been either, probably b/c I'm just not a beach person.

Love the fact that you took a cooler full of bear to the restaurant...thats a classic move. Lastly, I noticed you said you have a Go UCI Football bag. I went to UCI and dont even recall us having a team. Maybe I should have paid closer attention tothe field and less to the girls?! haha. Great write ups

Meal, i left that comment on Pam's page. she was talking about ucla or something, and i said that we had a better football team. haha. no such thing. the only football team we have is the intramural guys who are playing in between their biology midterms.
