It was getting dark here as you can see from the pictures.
Hawaii map. Kau Kau means food or to eat in Hawaiian.
We were about to head down here so we can eat. I'll share more pictures soon at the restaurant.
For tourists, I think the Aloha Tower would be a good place to visit. A lot of vendors are selling souvenirs and the view is great. If you decide to do a lunch or dinner cruise, you will have to pass by the shopping sites too.

See's candies are great for party favors like birthdays, baby showers, weddings etc. I notice a lot of people give See’s during Christmas and Valentine’s season. If it is more convenient, you can also give gift cards. For people out of state, gift cards is what we usually give. See’s chocolates are also being used for fund-raising. See’s have sugar free chocolates if you are looking for a healthier alternative or you just don’t want to put on the weight.
You can search the See’s Candies website for the most convenient location close to you. You can also order and you can filter your search by price or by category. You can even customize the mixture of chocolates that will be placed in a box.

Who needs a menu when there's daily specials posted on the wall? I ordered the first one on the list, the jumbo shrimps with garlic butter and since I can't think of a good title for this blog post, I thought the name of this food will do.

Have a great weekend!
P.S. I will have more giveaways and reviews coming soon. Please continue to support my blog. Thanks again for being here.
It’s finally here. In 3 days I get to marry by best friend. Since she’s been busy with all of the wedding planning, I relegated myself to getting our house set up. No, I’m not talking about decorating or even picking our what side of the closet or dressers will be mine (I figured she would want to do all of that stuff). My job is getting the essential services set up at our new home. Since there is only one gas and electric provider in our area, setting up those services were a breeze. And since the county government controls the water where we live, that was pretty much set up for us too. The fun came when trying to find affordable internet, telephone and cable service. Thankfully, a coworker suggested I look at www.directstartv.com to get a good deal on cable. Now if there were only a cheap internet and phone provider in the area. I’ve heard that some companies will allow you to bundle services for a cheaper rate. Does anyone have any idea where I can go to find one of those?

I think these Lovable labels can be used with other things too like labeling items in your kitchen or if you are crafting and you can label your craft supplies. The labels are in booklets. It is easy to use and keep your items this way because it is more organized. All the bigger labels are together and then there are tabs that separate them from the smaller labels and the fun (ours is heart-shaped) stickers. Even the friendship labels (additional 40) will be in a booklet. You'll make another mommy and another kid happy.
Lovable Labels are microwave and dishwasher safe!
You can view more about the Lovable Labels Friendship pack HERE. 160 pieces of stickers for only $24.95.
For updates and promotions, you can like Lovable Labels in Facebook and follow them in Twitter- @MyLovableLabels.
Please stay tune for the Lovable Labels Giveaway here at my blog.
Disclaimer: I received free awesome labels from Lovable Labels. No other compensation was received.

I just started a green giveaway hop in my previous blog post and there are many interesting prizes that you can win. Some prizes are natural cleaning solutions, cloth diapers and even reusable pads for women. I haven’t tried those yet. I was going to host a giveaway for a software sponsor, however, my computer failed to download a huge file.
I think these are innovative products and they can help the environment but there are other ways to learn about being “green”. Other effective ways are geothermal energy using heat from hot springs beneath the ground, solar energy which you can use by installing solar panels, and even installing a windmill in your yard to produce electricity. There are a lot of houses here that are solar powered and I think the government is also giving tax incentives to those who install solar panels. In Texas, there are studies being made like for Austin geothermal energy solutions.
Here are some photos of nature I took.
Some people debate whether global warming is being caused by people and hydrocarbons, or if it’s just a natural climate cycle for the Earth. Whether it is manmade or not, I think it would be good to care and do something in any way instead of wasting resources.

This is how I made it. I just started with a fabric rope. I joined the ends by knotting them together and then continue to make more knots in between.

If you go to Walgreens to fill prescriptions under Express Script, it would be helpful to know that the contract between Walgreens and Express Script has ended on the last day of December 2011. Unfortunately, there are many people who will be affected by this change. Those who are covered by Express Script now have to look for another drug store or pharmacy to get their medicines. However, you can join the Walgreens Prescription Savings Club and you will be able to get discounts. The membership is only $5 for an individual person or $10 for the family.
Here are my reasons for shopping at Walgreens aside from their low prices:
It is open 24 hours. Other convenience stores have expensive prices but Walgreens is cheap and convenient.
It has lot of branches , you are most likely to find a near Walgreens at your area
It can be a one stop shop. They offer a lot of items.
You can provide continued support for Walgreens by visiting Walgreens on Facebook and liking their page. You can also be a follower of Walgreens on Twitter. They provide updates about the latest news and deals through these social media sites. At this time, Walgreens is donating $1 to every new like on Facebook to their Way to Well Fund Partners.
I think I am starting the year right with more quality time with RC. Last year, I felt that I was at the computer a lot especially by the end of the year after our vacation. This year, I want to be able to "homeschool" RC and do more activities with her whether just at home, going to the park or wherever we go.
This is one of her favorite activities at home, to have a picnic. Sometimes, we have real food but most of the time we use toys.

We celebrated RC's birthday at the Hawaii Children's Discovery Center. It was a simple celebration but it was fun. I was anxious about it a few days before the party. We rushed into ordering the cake just a day before. I had to beg the bakery to make it ready at a certain time. I finished doing grab bags also just a day before.
We had the choice of either an indoor or outdoor party but to be on the safer side, I chose the indoor just in case it rains. I only invited four families and one couple. Unfortunately, one family did not come so that was a waste because I paid for each person but overall, I'm glad to have a party for RC this year because last year, we just took her to the zoo.
