Looking forward to the redesign!

A little recommendation, I found these to be so delicious and useful in my kitchen:




We look forward to your updated blog AND your mystery blog!


Hey Reid!

I've really enjoyed your blog and its honesty. A blog is about the sharing a bit of yourself (whether it's ranting or raving) with the netverse, and it's sad that some haters take it as invitation to put up snarky comments. They are probably frustrated bloggers with no writing talent and no audience.

Don't let it get you down, and I hope your new blog is better than ever!


Can't wait to see the updated site, Reid! Now to search for that new blog of yours...


AHHHH I will search out the new blog high and low! glad you are doing fine. HUGZ and good wishes from Germany. :)


hi reid,

i'm a long time fan of your site. i grew up in hawaii, and i just love reading about local food. i also love your food posts when you are abroad as well! can you please email us and let us know your link for overseas visits?



Reid looking forward to your relaunch.
If you are going to be using wordpress as your new blog you can import all the goodies from here and set up your permalinks like you have them now. It shouldn't take you long to get your ranking back. Just do a 301 redirect on tyepad to your domain.
Google likes wordpress.


YES. Youngs in Aiea is AMAZING!!! Like you don't even know. The wife who runs the restaurant with her husband is a darling and loves to get to know the people who visit the restaurant because everybody becomes a regular there if they aren't. And even if you haven't been there in 6 months, she still remembers you. I've been going there for over 10 years. They used to be across the street at Aiea Shopping Center where Jamba Juice and L&L is. Once you try their meat jun you won't want anyone elses. There is no need for sauce with their meat jun. I also highly recommend their BBQ chicken and mandoo. Everytime my family has Korean its always 2 plates meat jun, 2 plates BBQ chicken and 1 plate mandoo. OH... and there kim chee is the best kim chee ever. Whenever my cousins from the Hilo come down its a must during their trip no matter if its half a day.... All to say.. Go Check It Out!!


THANK YOU for coming back!!!!!! You've been so missed. Always in gratitude!


your pictures are incredible - what kind of cameral do you use?

    Canon EOS 5D

    Most of the newer photos on this site are being taken by this camera. I'm still learning how to use it, but I think the photos it takes are amazing. Though the lens I use often varies, many of the photos on this site are taken with a Canon EF 35mm f2.0 lens.

  • Dscu40r
    Sony Cyber-shot® DSC-U40

    A majority of the photos on this site were shot using this little camera. It was compact and discreet -- excellent for taking photos under most conditions. Sadly, it has recently died.
