Kamesan at Watanabe Bakery in Honolulu, Hawaii


Aaaaaagh, the pleasure of a Japanese pastry called Kamesan, a turtle made of a sweet bun with azuki inside, and a cup of coffee at Watanabe Bakery in Honolulu as I wait for my remote control to be fixed for my 2000 Nissan Frontier truck at my friend’s auto shop, Masaki Auto. After so many years, I finally decided to fix my remote control. I was opening my truck the old school way, use the key. Lol!!!

2017 Halloween


On Halloween evening, October 31, 2017, I had fun giving candies to children at my friend Mike Noguchi’s house in Pearl City, Hawaii. For the first group of kids, I was so happy to see my friends Scott and Michelle Miyasato’s 2 youngest daughters and Mike and Rachael Lee Oshiro’s daughter with their friends!!! That highlighted my day!!! Later that evening we ate pasta, and I helped Ashley Kirito with her business plan to expand her business servicing horses. Pictured here is a Jade plant for good luck from my friend Mike Noguchi. I have so much gratitude for those moments!!

Yuntaku on 7/13/2017 @ Artistry


With my parents at Yuntaku, a fundraiser for the organization, a member of the Hawaii United Okinawan Association at Artistry at Kaka’ako, Honolulu, Hawaii on July 13, 2017. My sister Lara (3rd from the left) was one of the organizers, helping out her friends.They did a dance together onstage. I’m very proud of my sister’s leadership in the community and engineering sector.

You should know baby that you’re the best.


I just need to get it off my chest. Yeah more than you know, yeah more than you know. You should know that baby you’re the best. Yeah more than you know, yeah more than you know.

Sorry, these lyrics by Axwell Ingrosso’s song “More Than You Know” are playing in my head, but I just need to get it off my chest.

Music is one of the things that brings me joy!  It’s a tool that I apply to maintain my happiness.  There’s studies that show the positive effects music has on our lives.  That’s why I enjoy producing music concerts.  I’m so lucky to have partnered on some music events with my friend G who I became friends with from my days at the University of Hawaii at Manoa.  He got me to appreciate electronic dance music (EDM).  Though, I enjoy all types of music such as but not limited to classical, orchestra music, piano music, reggae, Hawaiian, all decades of pop, love songs, ballads, rock, alternative, hip hop, mellow electronic music, and electronic dance music.

Exercise and Ocean Therapy Reduces Stress and Anxiety


Here’s a picture from my short 2.77 mile run along the coast of Ko’olina on 5/15/2017. After my run, I swam the length of Lagoon 4 six times. Exercise and being in and near the ocean is helpful in alleviating stress and anxiety. I’m grateful to live in Hawaii.
