A Day Tour Through Waipio Valley, Hawaii

TOURING DAY AT HILO...  or did I mistaken the name for another.... 

Started our day trip at around 10am and stopped at a flea market to walk around and ended up buying two Hawaiian papayas for $5.  Small, short and rounded...  that was how they looked like.... and we saw some rambutans being sold too.  We asked the seller and he couldn't tell us the name of the fruit... LOL.. and we told him that they are rambutans and we were from Malaysia, that was how we know.  He was amazed and he told us that his friend gave him some seeds to grow in Hawaii... this friend must be a Malaysian... LOL... 

Walking around the market.... nothing much really except for the local food and fruits.... 
Then we drove further to another part of the town... 
Kamehameha The Great, the first ruler in the kingdom of Hawaii...
Walked a few minutes down the slope ...
Where the tourists are.... 
To catch some scenic pictures...
Beautiful scenery from where we stood....
And we could go down to the beach if we wanted...
That would be another half hour walk..
But no, we did not walk down.... 
Too hot and too far to walk...
We had another place to cover anyway..... 
So let's just take a picture to mark my presence!

  1. There are endless scenic spots with panoramic view that would take months to explore all. My friend who studied there pointed out that he could not cover much after being there for years. Enjoy your trip!

  2. Very sunny! Too hot? In New Zealand or other countries overseas, even though it is so sunny, it is nice and cool...not like here, so hot and humid!!!

    A lot of people. All tourists. Glad to see that they were all wearing masks.

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL...
