The 10 Year Anniversary Dinner at Stage Restaurant that was the same menu presented at the James Beard House in New York a few weeks ago was so good, I enjoyed it two nights in a row❗️My favorite course both nights was this Big Island 3 oz. Kona Lobster Tail (with Scallion Hollandaise, Cauliflower-Lemon Purée, Hamakua Springs Aliʻi Mushrooms, Buttered Corn and Longanisa) One of the best preparations of Lobster I've ever had. #stagerestaurant #konalobster #chefrondeguzman #JamesBeardHouseDinner

Part of the blossoms from this Cannonball tree look like a sea anemone to me. This was seen on the Thornton Wilder tree on the campus at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. This tree is protected by a City Ordinance and was planted in 1933 by the 3x Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright and novelist #nofilter #ihavethisthingwithtrees #cannonballtree #ThorntonWilderTree #ThorntonWilder #UHatManoa #couroupitaguianensis

Designed by internationally renown architect I.M.Pei, Jefferson Hall was completed in late 1963 as part of the multi-building complex of the East-West Center at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. The lion statue's plaque reads "Presented by the Republic of China to the East-West Center October 31, 1971 at the request of the Chinese students" #whpgeometry #impei #architecturalwalkingtour #aiahonolulu #eastwestcenter #UHatManoa #WHPgeometric

"This traditional sala (pavilion) is a gift to the East-West Center from His Majesty, King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand and bears the Royal Seal . It replaces an earlier sala dedicated by His Majesty onJune 6, 1967. Its proper name, Pratinang Patiharn Tasanai, means "Throne of the Miracle Vision." The sala is a rich cultural symbol of Thailand, commonly used as shelter from rain and heat, for quiet conversation, for study and contemplation. The structure was designed by National Artist Dr. Pinyo Suwankiri, crafted in Thailand, and reassembled on this site by Thai artisans. On behalf of His Majesty, Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn dedicated this new sala on March 1, 2008."

This baobab tree is the oldest tree on the campus of the University of Hawaii at Manoa. When they built the Art Building (completed in early 1976) they were not allowed to disturb this tree and had to build around it. #isthatafaceiseeinthetree #ihavethisthingwithtrees #baobab #aiahonolulu #architecturalwalkingtour #UHatManoa
