odds and ends

Some random photos...this one was in-between of moonset and sunrise.

One morning while walking there was this huge rainbow, of course I was walking in a drizzle.

A flock of chickens in our neighborhood. I stopped to take their picture and they were running towards me (which is why the photo is so blurry, I panicked!)

Ikura don from Don Quijote...only US$3.99 + tax. It had tobiko (flying fish roe) and maguro (tuna) plus the ikura (salmon roe)...pretty good for the price.

How huge is this baked manapua (char siu bao/pork bun)? Got this from Chun Wah Kam in Kapolei. Their selection isn't as good as when we buy from Waimalu and this bao was mostly bread.

Also from Chun Wah Kam, their Bolo Bao. A sweet bread filled with custard topped with a crunchy cookie topping. This thing is meant to be shared!

We got 2 of these pineapples for free from Foodland with our Maikai Rewards (a point card system for the store). They were super sweet and delicious.

The full moon in July.

A Hummer decorated with maile and ilima.

The old Farmer's Market on Ward still has their old signs.

Saw this while waiting at an intersection. Pau Hana means "after work" or "after work drink"...Happy Friday!

Thanks for sharing more "feel good stuff" from home. I can just smell the tropical breeze from looking at those sky images. That perfume always hits me like a ton of bricks when I step off the plane after flying half way round the world!

Great pictures--love the chickens, they would have fun with the ducks in my neighborhood. ;-)

... and that's all said...

Splendid pictures! Just awesome!

Thanks Jude!

I like where you are TK!

Hope I'm not making you homesick Rowena!

Chicken and ducks together would be something Debinhawaii.

Thanks ATA!

Take care everyone.
