I booked it on over into town to meet up with some high school classmates of mine to meet up, talk story and eat, and we did it all in the outdoor garden area at my friend's apartment. (It's something we do once in a great while.) It was pretty awesome.
It was a potluck shindig so I went to grab some fried noodles from good old Zippy's. It was quite the adventure, before hitting up Zippy's I drove from place to place trying to find something to take for the potluck. For one reason or another nothing was working for me, either there was too many people waiting in line, restaurants that I thought were open were out of business or what they had to offer didn't sound appealing, so Zippy's it was. Today was hella hot so I just had to hook myself up with an Icee, Pepsi and strawberry mix, yeaaah baby.
So I made it to my friend's place, and it was pretty cool. We chilled in the garden area and looked at photos from our (much slimmer) high school days. I also got to see my friend's crib, which he fixed up, pretty nice place I must say. So when we booked it back down to the garden area, we met up with the gang. I got to talk briefly with them and then I had to book it on out. I wish I could've stayed longer, but that's what you get when you're Mr. Busybody. It's all good, there will be more opportunities. But ya, I got this killer shot in the garden area of my friend's place.
So after the shindig at my friend's place I drove over to grab my other friend and then we headed on over to the windward side. Today there was a "I Heart Japan" fundraiser that took place, which was a Zumba, slash Kickboxing, slash Hip Hop two and a half booty workin' event, all for $10. All of the proceeds went towards Japan and their very unfortunate situation that took place there.
At the "I Heart Japan" fundraiser, there was a (non-mandatory) dress code of wearing the colors red and/or white to kinda go with the theme of the event. So I busted out my red Dickie's (oh yea baby) and threw on my "Aloha for Japan" shirt, so I was good to go.
So yup, there we were again, the "fly dancers" dancin' backup for my friend Mara. (If many of you remember, we all did a very similar fundraiser a couple of weeks back. http://haynmade.blogspot.com/2011/03/zumba-dunny-and-haynmade-what-combo.html) The only difference was, the stages were more stable and I didn't have that fear of falling between the stages "tectonic plates" cracks. But ya, all in all we did a pretty good set in front of 150+ peopz.
After the workout, my friend and I booked it on over to get some grub, cuz we were hella starving, lol. So we headed on over to Kailua Town Pub & Grill. I ordered me my French onion soup and a club sandwich, my friend got her a pastrami melt sandwich. Man, that was some good stuff.
And what's a meal without dessert? Haha. (I know we burned calories for nothing, lol.) So we headed on over to Coldstone to have some icecream. I had me my typical order of coffee icecream with malted powder and Kit Kat, in a waffle bowl oh yea baby. My friend jus' had her some coffee icecream. I was one happy dude.
Upon leaving I snapped a couple more pics...
And then there's pic at a fountain nearby...
