This morning, 6:54 a.m., swipe left. I like how the petals look like feathers. The sole bloom on my next door neighbor's night-blooming cereus aglow (and heavily filtered here) #nightbloomingcereus #cactusflower #onenightonly #stillprettyinthemorning

Stumbled across this yesterday and planned on going back today to try! (swipe left) For just under $12 I got 2 scoops (1/2 hamachi + 1/2 salmon for 1st scoop, 1/2 ahi + 1/2 tako for 2nd scoop), multigrain rice, 3 sides: crab salad, ocean salad, gari (ginger) yuzu wasabi sauce, topped it off with sesame seeds, and then got to use 3 dressings on the side counter: Sesame, peanut butter, dynamite. Thanks @pokeway808 #mywayatpokeway

Woke up really early on a Sunday morning to have the breakfast buffet at La Hiki at the Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina. What a treat! 
Swipe left:  1) the lovely floral arrangement in the lobby 2) hungry koi at the entrance to the hotel lobby 3) beautiful, sunny weather, not too hot 4) congee with many condiments 5) just a fraction of the myriad of options available on the La Hiki Buffet line 6) smart idea, wish more restaurants would do this - a box of many sets of utensils at our table for two (didn't have to worry about waiting to get new utensils each time our empty plates were cleared!) Huge breakfast selection. I loved the variety and can't wait to try the brunch buffet (includes Prime Rib) that just started today. #lahiki #fsoahu

Aloha Ice's strawberry  hibiscus  shave ice at #thestreethi is really good! Love how it has strawberry chunks, mochi ice cream, tapioca pudding and mint and it's just the right sweet/tartness. #alohaice #michellekarrueoka
