I’m back!

Just got back into town yesterday afternoon and I have to say that it feels really good to be home. Loved going on vacation, but there’s only so long you can be away from home.

We started the trip off with a cruise around the Caribbean then drove up to Orlando and checked out Universal Studios. My personal high-light of the trip had to be Orlando. Universal was awesome and the shopping wasn’t bad either. Cruise was good too, but it was a little too long for my liking…there’s only so long you can stay on a boat (despite the unlimited food options).

Happy Holidays!

Woot wootttt, freeeee of school for a whole 2 weeks! It’s been a good day… Had my last exam this morning @ 8am, headed home, jumped for joy, then finished packing. lol

Won’t be in town for Christmas this year, instead, I’ll be spending Xmas in Florida with the fams (minus C… Boo). We’ll be cruising around the Caribbean then stopping off in Orlando before heading home. This is the first time in about 10 years, where the whole fams is going on vacation together. It’s going be a fun trip – I just know it. Plus I’m the designated photographer, so there will be many random candid shots. lol

Aside from the candid paparazzi shots that I plan to pull on the fams, I’m hoping to get a bunch of foodie pictures in too. Never been on a cruise before, but according to the parents, food is everywhere, all the time.

Well, thats all for now folks, wishing you all a happy holiday and awesome new year! See ya later!

Hawaii : Food Adventure

As promised, here’s a tidbit of our Hawaiian food adventure. The first day on the island was a food tour – they took us around honolulu and let us try about 15 different types of food in total… yes, it was a food marathon and food marathons are always fun times. I was planning to take pictures of all the foods we tried, but it was nearly impossible b/c at one point, we were standing in the middle of Hawaii’s Chinatown, while sampling close to 10 different types of food, one after the other… but I did manage to capture some food from the places we sat down at.

Hawaii: Poke

Hey, how’s it going? Just kind of dawned on me that there’s only a week left of summer and school starts next week already… Lame. My summer was pretty much all summer school till last week, so it went by really fast.

I mentioned in the last post that C and I were in Hawaii. We spent a week there (it was awesome) and just got back a couple of days ago! And as promised, we (mostly me) took tons of food pictures of all the different foods that we tried.

Going to start off by sharing a food that we both loved: poke. Have you ever heard of poke? It’s basically sashimi that’s cut into cubes then seasoned with different ingredients, such as seaweed, Hawaiian rock salt, etc. Really good, for those who like sashimi! Before we left for Hawaii, we researched a few places that we wanted to try. According to Guy Fieri (Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives Host), fresh poke is a local favorite and a must-try in Hawaii… So from the moment we settled in, we started on our hunt for poke… Ended up eating poke at least once a day!… So good. Seemed like there were endless seasoning combinations to the different types of fish available too.
