  • In sickness and in health – reinforcing of wedding vows

    In beautiful Hawaii – on my honeymoon, I have a nasty throat infection. I started having the chills on our first night, slept till 2pm the next day cos I was just too sick, masked my symptoms with tylenol. This morning, I decided enough is enough – I needed antibiotics. So I went to the doctors, cost me USD136 just for consultation (confirmed diagnosis – an infection of the throat, with pus on my tonsils) , then the husband drove me to the pharmacy, and my antibiotics costs USD70.

    I think in some countries – that amount I paid, is enough for surgery…..

    Anyways, the husband is taking good care of me and being quite patient with me for being ill, and putting up with me being absolutely horrible company.

    All in beautiful Hawaii…


  • Where I ended up instead of the Maui Ocean Center…

    Still in Kihei, after lunch…

    Ptoo-ey baloney, cos the Ocean Center is for kids???!!!

    This is where my husband takes me when I said I wanted to go to the Ocean Center.
    The Kihei Kalama Village – been there, done that – completed the browsing in 7.8 minutes.


  • Hawaiian Plate Lunches – another meal in Kihei

    @ Da Kitchen Express, 2439 South Kihei Road.

    Tasty and huge indeed! Since our friend always speaks fondly of Hawaiian plate lunches – we just had to try it! A bit on the salty side for me, but a nice first experience at a typical Hawaiian diner.

  • 1st Dinner in Maui, Hawaii – Sansei Seafood Restaurant and Sushi Bar

    Service is excellent and fast – food comes within 10 minutes of ordering.

    Voted Best Sushi and Best Late Night Dining – menu consists of specialty sushi rolls, hubby had the sashimi, and he said it’s really fresh.

    We kinda lost our way on the way there cos the GPS ‘lady’ took us the long way – what should have been a 3 mile ride, ended up being 10 miles I think. The roads are generally quite dark at night too – so that’s kinda scary (doesn’t help that I don’t see to well in the dark).


    This place was busy even on a week night!

    Sansei – Kihei Town Centre, at corner of South Kihei Road near Foodland, across from Kalana Beach Park (808 879 0004)

  • Honeymoon in Hawaii…

    After many many hours on the plane – with transit in Tokyo…

    And this is our rented ride – a mustang convertible… couldn’t get one in pink though!
