Delicate Blossom: Asahikawa...isn;t that the place with the famous zoo?
2 weeks, 3 days ago on Aloha Sapporo! Last day in Furano
MC: I wonder how many XL Bags of popcorn in this line up?
2 weeks, 3 days ago on HIFF 2014: The lineup
MC: I guess Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson didn't make it for you? I go as far back as Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruice. Although I thoroughly enjoyed Robert Downey's take on the role.
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Movies I Miss: Buddy cop films
Delicate Blossom: Could it be that Japanese farm products are not GMO?
2 weeks, 5 days ago on Aloha Sapporo! Visiting Furano, part 2
MC: Foie Gras!!!~do it now while you are young and your metabolism can take it. Trust me, animal organs are deadly for cholesterol as I now have to watch what I indulge in. BTW, the South Premium Mall is enclosed and air conditioned, so they are easier to walk through than the North side one, especially during the heat of the day.
3 weeks ago on Vegas Vacation: Restos and recs
@Myong @Annoddah_Dave MC: Yes, large bag of popcorn for this one. Saw it in Titan format. DW did a good job in creating his own version of Robert McCall. The only thing that was quirky was when he used the powder actuated nail gun without a safety...and one handed at that! Normally you can only fire these if you unlock the safety by pushing the barrel against a hard surface. Similar to Lethal Weapon sequel. Liked that he used public transportation rather than a Jaguar as in the TV series. Made his low key existence more believable. It will be tough to not think about this flick whenever using a wine corkscrew.

MC: Going there in a couple of weeks...thanks for the update on what's happening!
3 weeks, 4 days ago on Vegas Vacation: The hotel and shows
DS: Looks very nice and inviting. Wonder if the homeless will use it at night.
3 weeks, 5 days ago on Parklets unveiled in Our Kaka‘ako
MC: Edward Woodward played the role with little emotion...based upon his cold blooded profession. He was cool and collected and only got really pissed when facing those that do innocents wrong. I am a fan of the series but it got cancelled...but been waiting for the DW take of this role. Sounds like a large bag of popcorn!

@Melissa808 @Annoddah_Dave I vaguely recall that but for the life of me I can't remember where it was before they built that beautiful restaurant. Things I remember were the kimono clad waitresses, Canlis Special Salad, and a car valet that had an incredible memory to match you with your car (he did not give you a token and knew which car was yours)
4 weeks, 1 day ago on Party pics: Hawaii Restaurant Association’s Hall of Fame
@Melissa808 @Annoddah_Dave I understand that the "Broasted" label is copyrighted and a company sells the pressurized fryer for over $10K. Them's a lot of chix to amortize the cost of set up!

@Chuggy_Bear @Annoddah_Dave CB: I agree with K's but you gotta love rice cause there is plenty of it. I did eat at Sugoi's a couple of months ago and was completely turned off. They were better before becoming uber popular. Yup, the chicken was dry as an old nag!
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Our Top 5: Bento
CB: I don't know how Zippy's made the list or even Sugoi's. Get real bento from Kokoro Tei. Even some of the bento offered at Shirokiya is better than Zips and Sugoi.
Delicate Blossom: Fuud Reminds One Life Is Cool. Great pix and video. Wish I could afford all the HFWF events. Back to my instant ramen....

Delicate Blossom: Are they open at night (when it is not so warm)?
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Something New: VJ’s Waikiki Dogs & Burgers
Wine Gurl: Yes, do have the valet park your car. Went there when it was Zen and the parking is very tight. Do not recommend bringing your Escalade or Dodge Ram. I can't remember where we parked when Frank DeLima was packing them in at the Red Noodle???
2 months ago on Hidden gem: Il Buco
Delicate Blossom: Went there shortly after they opened. Fuud was guud but very few peeps for lunch. They don't advertise much and rely on word of mouth. It's kind of a hidden gem but for that neighborhood, prices may be a bit high. Not too many students can afford some of their stuff as it is near the UH. You're right, parking is pretty generous until your followers "slam" the place after reading this post! LOL
2 months ago on Good eats at Holoholo Bar & Grill
MC: Right on! Much of the social media stuff is about the individual. Dale Carnegie said that the 2 main drivers that humans have in doing anything is: 1. The need for sex; 2. The need to feel important. I guess the ice bucket is all about #2, because I know that a bucket of ice water dumped on you inhibits #1!

@Melissa808 @Annoddah_Dave Delicate Blossom...thanks, I don't recall that post. I must have been too spiked at the time!

Delicate Blossom: Neat stuff and looks like it is filling...I wonder what a "Middle Tea" service would be like? Perhaps "spiked" hot tea or ice tea.
Delicate Blossom: as advertised...went during an off hour so it was not crowded. Can imagine if this place gets really busy. Attentive staff.

2 months, 1 week ago on New chefs, new flavors at the Top of Waikiki
MC: It takes talent to write and act to make a film successful. It seems a lot of US films are so formulaic just to punch out some dough for the company. Even the actors are really no more than merely prostituting themselves...slam bam thank you ma'am! They need the dough just like the rest of us and lower their standards and price accordingly just to make it through the day.
2 months, 1 week ago on ‘Let’s Be Cops’ gets points for trying
Delicate Blossom: You are usually quite good at including prices of dishes...is there a reason for not including them here? Maybe the LASIK wasn't good enough to see the small print of a price on the menu. LOL. I'm with turkfontaine, some things are better deconstructed in our stomachs than before we put it in our mouths.
@Melissa808 @Annoddah_Dave Delicate Blossom: I guess even with LASIK the 2:00AM hour makes the eyes bleary!
2 months, 1 week ago on Hy’s Steak House new happy hour menu
Delicate Blossom: I think pix #15 should be captioned as "rack of lamb" vice "lamb chops" which is a different cut. The next pix is really not how true rack lovers would want it done. Agree that it should have more pink...but fuud does luuk guud. Fuud Reminds One Life Is Cool.
MC: Spot on! It seems like many of the comic geniuses have such huge chains...some are self inflicted others of a more mental nature. Lenny Bruce, Richard Pryor, Chris Farley, John Belushi, Rap Reiplinger, Flip Wilson, Jonathan Winters, etc. all were on the edge of a more bedeviled world it seems. But I do disagree on including Sandler, Carrey, and Ferrell in such august company, these guys are not even in the same league as Williams!

Chef Ed: Sorry, I did not realize how debilitating your injury was, as I wondered why you were in the photo profession. There is a saying that "Those who can, do, and those who can't, teach". You your case it seems like you "can't" due to physical limitation more than anything but your passion and desire is still there. I know you do work for Highway Inn trying to get back in the groove. In more ways than one I guess, you still "knead the dough", so I say go for it. I think with your experience, you will attract more than enough interns who can do the physical stuff for you and actualize your creativity. Let us know what is happening and will come out to support you!

MC: Whoa! a political diatribe from our film critic...I don't know about getting rid of the World's oldest profession. However, your point is well taken as I too try to focus on the road. But it is like an accident on the side of the road, everyone has to rubber neck and thus slow traffic. Can you imagine sign waving at the rail stations!? Wait! maybe everyone will be using rail and there will be no car traffic and our roads will be empty, ergo, no need for sign waving. Nah, only in the movies, some guys will attach their signs to helium filled balloons and raise them next to the elevated rail routes.

2 months, 3 weeks ago on Sharing ‘Family Ingredients’ with Ed Kenney
Delicate Blossom: This marketing and PR gig is one of the "toughest" sales jobs around. There are so many intangibles and many do not affect the bottom line of organizations. The metrics are what one would call "squisshy" at best. This is like selling air...one never really knows how much is enough. Maybe that's why the award is an Anvil, cause you get so beat up trying and your head gets hard!
