“The 22 Immutable Laws of Marketing” by Al Ries & Jack Trout


I finished reading “The 22 Immutable Laws of Marketing” by Al Ries & Jack Trout late this morning of November 18, 2017 at Starbucks in Pearl City, Hawaii. I learned about this book through Tim Ferriss who is an entrepreneur, author, podcast host, and investor. Super good! Very applicable! My mind is churning up stuff that I’m putting into words with my MacBook Pro.

Bad dream, but on the right path now


I just woke up from a bad dream where I was with one of the two former business partners who stole money from my other business partner and I. I woke up with my heart racing. I began thinking of my other bad experiences in my career, where certain judges and politicians punished me harder because of the high positions I held in government at a young age, to make an example of me before others and sometimes the public. Power and money play a role in making people do mean things against others. My good friend Brandon Mitsuda texted me this beautiful picture of Capri, Italy. I want to vacation there when things settle down. I feel much better. I know I’m on a better path now. I’m seeking peace within me. May peace be with all of you as well.

Always Forgive


My friend and mentor, Hawaii Speaker Emeritus Calvin K.Y. Say and I back in 2010, speaking to a Chinese organization in Honolulu, Hawaii.  “Always forgive,” is what he told me in my early years as a politician when I was being attacked by opposition and negative people. This advice has stayed with me. Keep moving forward with peace!

Flashback to 2007 -Presiding the floor session of the Hawaii House of Representatives


Here’s a picture of me in 2007 when I was presiding over the floor session of the Hawaii State House of Representatives when I served as Vice Speaker of the Hawaii House under the leadership of my friend and mentor Hawaii House Speaker Calvin K.Y. Say. I served as a State Representative of Waikele, Royal Kunia, Village Park, and Waipahu from 2002 to 2010. This is the background picture for my Facebook page until I achieve a moment that is just as exciting or better. 😉

Make A Law Alive Through The Arts


IMG_20170511_011847_931

When you pass a law as a politician, people will say you did it for votes.

When you argue the law as a lawyer, they will say you did it to win.

But when you make a law alive through the arts, people will see it is from your heart.
