Man, I knew it was hot here, but c'mon, it is already September...
I guess the typhoon that is supposedly coming this way (or maybe it already passed?) is partly to blame.
Humidity is evil...you know it is hot when you turn on the cold water and only get warm water...
Trip home was long...main meal was so-so, I was surprised we had a choice, on my flight from JPN to HNL there was no choice.
Ted's Bakery does the dessert (would've loved chocolate haupia pie...their chocolate cake with passion fruit frosting...at least the cake was moist, frosting was meh!)
And they actually served us baked manapua (char siu bao) for our snack WITH ice cream! NOTE to JAL: warmed baked manapua would be much more appreciated than ice rock cold one.
Actually didn't sleep much on the flight and watched "Sex and the City 2", "The A-Team" and a Japanese film, "Railways"...all very entertaining.
Baggage took awhile to come out, and I "squeezed" my way out of customs...the guy started asking me in Japanese if I spoke Japanese, so I stuck out my fingers and motioned "a little", he then proceeded in broken English, "do you live here?", I replied then let me pass.
I think if I spoke to him in Japanese he would've asked me to open my bag, so I'm glad I didn't say much.
With the heat as bad as it is, we slept for most of the night with the a/c AND fan on...until the timers turned everything off and we had to wake up to turn them back on.
All the stuff I brought back was okay, well, except for 1 can of Vienna sausage, it was a little dented, no biggie.
Other than that, it is nice to be back. Did I mention that humidity was evil?
