Vince Leong I don't have to tell you but she is a fellow McKinley grad, so you better treat her right!

@Melissa808 @Myong I would but I keep missing the show when it's on.
8 months, 2 weeks ago on Fed up with foodies!
So you're back to movie reviews and questionable reviews on #H50?
@melissa808 Thanks once again for the gratuitous hand shot!

Don't forget folks, despite the Punahou Carnival apologies to @anotherplate808 but we got First Friday and Night in Chinatown starting tonight at a little after 5:00 p.m. please plan accordingly! There will be road closures in town!

Kung Xi Fa Tsai to you and your family @jlieu ! Good health, Much prosperity, and most importantly good eats!
@hicds does it again! Dim-sum style!
Oh and great props to Tripler Army Medical Center! I swear I could name a bunch of those doctors in those few seconds of fame!
2 years, 8 months ago on ‘Hawaii Five-O’ Recap: ‘Ua Hala’
Since when was going north from Pali onto School Street anywhere near Kakaako? I was looking outside to see if I saw a police chase going on.
@Melissa808 Honolulu Hale is on that list at like 12:30 p.m. in the event you're in the area...@anotherplate808 that means you too!
3 years ago on Eight things for Chinese New Year
@harrycovair@Melissa808 I opted for that new place in Aiea. I won't give the name because I don't want it to be 3 doors deep next year! :ep
@Melissa808 Town Center of Mililani on Saturday, Waipahu Festival Marketplace on Sunday, a cultural festival in Waikiki on Sunday afternoon and then a few dozen schools and businesses on Monday.
You're so right on @Melissa808 !!!! Kung Hee Fat Choi to each and every one of you! Come out to Mililani Town Center this Saturday for Chinese New Year celebrations and if you can't make it on Saturday, come out on Sunday to Waipahu Festival Marketplace in the morning for more Chinese New Year celebrations!
@Melissa808@DianeSeo Or you could just come back on down to Chinatown this upcoming weekend and get it cheaper!
@Annoddah_Dave@Melissa808 At that rate you might as well ask @KITV to re-air the Titus Chan episode where he's cooking the jai with...dare I say it....chicken broth.
Nice coverage Dallas!

Never knew anyone who would put ginko nuts in their jai except my Mom....do they put oyster?
3 years ago on Hawaii: In Real Life ~ Chinese New Year at Panya
@Melissa808@Annoddah_Dave Better yet just say "hong bao"
More M&M face offs @Melissa808 !!!! You and Mari should have a rematch with @andy bumatai, it was hilarious! Thanks @diane seo for being so patient with the @HICDS we hope in the Year of the Dragon we will venture further!
3 years, 1 month ago on Hawaii: In Real Life ~ a Nonstop year in review
@Annoddah_Dave A Hawaii Chinese Dinner Society event on the neighbor island? That's not a bad idea...@melissa808 is right, the pricing for a neighbor island tour is a bit pricy and logistically challenging.
@turkfontaine You come, good fun!
3 years, 1 month ago on Merry Christmas from the secret Chinese Dinner Society
@Melissa808 @nonstopmari Best one I could think of was at Fook Yuen. I think that was established at the other Fook Yuen write-up if I'm not mistakened.
A great job once again @Melissa808!!! Many many more mis-adventures next year with the new Chairman, @anotherplate808!!!!
@Melissa808 It's all good.
3 years, 3 months ago on Dinner at Dew Drop Inn
@Melissa808@M Surely there can be a compromise!
@lihinggirl Fear not, I remembered your little bro's birthday too. I didn't call him I texted him.
Far be it a very eclectic group for our October gathering. Hopefully next month we'll have the same eclectic group at the table once again.
@Melissa808 I'm the kind of chinee who takes the holiday because he getting time and a half. And I normally don't like to take off from work unless it's necessary like Chinese New Year.
3 years, 3 months ago on Hawaii: In Real Life ~ The Chang behind P.F. Chang’s
@Melissa808@rkhewesq Yup I know about that one. I know exactly which one Mr. Chiang is referring to. As I said, it all depends on the quality of the char siu. I have made it myself a few times using a random char siu house as a pilot, they actually have close to the concept, just no scrambled egg, but that you can do yourself. This random char siu house I went to allowed you to purchase freshly cooked jasmine rice under your choice of meat either char siu, roast pork, shoyu chicken, ginger sauce chicken, kind of like a plate lunch just without the salad, I'll show it to you sometime.
Oh and btw, awesome video. I always told people milk was the secret to my height and of course all of the years being yanked around by my siblings. :e)
Well since you WOKE me up ON MY HOLIDAY! Here is your answer @Melissa808 , Char siu, Rice, and Scrambled Eggs is a actually not a Hawai`i thing but a Hong Kong thing. I am told that shoyu or the fried rice we Hawai`i people are so accustomed to is more of an infusion idea. You remember that crystal fried rice we had at Fook Yuen? That's what Fried Rice is actually supposed to be, no shoyu.
@jlieu Believe you me the `ohana is just itching to see you too! Well more like the Godfather is. :e)
3 years, 4 months ago on Chinee like me: Dinner at Asia Manoa
@Melissa808@snow I only go one place for Honey Walnut Shrimp and I think we've addressed it before in a previous Chinee like me episode.
Do not forget now, this was our 1 year anniversary. We'll have bigger and more "unusual" initiations to come!
@Melissa808@HawaiiYogini It's called testing before you buy it! Don't you do that with the lychee?
@lihinggirl the Pooh and Tigger and of course Piglet cake came from a place I cannot name on here for annonymity purposes. It was a vanilla cake.
@Nanigurl You're more than welcome to join us at some future outing. Feel free to add me on facebook and I will run your application with a steam roller just to make sure there are no dollar bills attached to it. :e)
That would have been the kau yuk with taro. Short story about kau yuk, it's a common Hawaii chinese banquet dish....more traditionally ordered with pickled cabbage but for healthier minds, you can go with the taro instead.
@Melissa808 @M Specifically which one? The one with black bean or the one that looks like an albino touched?
3 years, 5 months ago on Chinee like me: Dim sum at Royal Garden
@Annoddah_Dave Actually there was at one time we forgot to take pictures prior to eating...I think it was at the Canton restaurant one we did a few months back.
Zho Ni Sheng Ri Kwai Lo Ms. @Chant808!
@DianeSeo I am flattered but I am just a small pawn in the trillions of hits Nonstop Honolulu receives.
