hawaii celebrates

celebrate (1) Hawaii's graduation season is in full force. One of my cousins just graduated so I was lucky to be able to celebrate with her, some of her family and friends.

Sitting on the edge of Kaneohe Bay is the yacht club, it was my first time here and it is a beautiful place.

For pupus (appetizers) we had poke (po-kay) tuna seasoned with ogo (a type of seaweed), onions, shoyu, sesame oil and chili...delish.

celebrate (2) And then there was the buffet line...so many things to eat, not enough space on the plate!

You should have seen the roast beef that they were carving from...HUGE!

celebrate And rounding out the event, a beautiful sunset...Congratulations A!

Looks so good Kat. It has made me hungry for sushi however I'll settle for the lamb stirfry I have planned for lunch happy with the knowledge that I have a sushi fest planned with my Japanofile neighbor for later in my stay:)

I really miss vacationing with my folks in Hawaii, when I was a young child, they soon got their first 48 footer (mini yacht) and named it Makai (too the see) that was on their 10th wedding anniversary I think. Such fun memories I have.

I miss Ube though, a lot. I remember being able to buy it really easily, I really want to go surfing with my dad but I doubt I could stand up for more than a minute.

I hope you get a chance to visit soon, MyFudo!

It had been ages since I'd gone to one Rowena!

Take care you two.
