If you're looking for nail biting, edge of your seat, culturally rich excitement you'll find it at Polynesian Cultural Center's famous evening show, Ha: Breath of Life.

Dine Around Oahu: Marukame Udon
August 10, 2011

Having just opened a few months ago, Marukame Udon has quickly become one of Waikiki's most popular dining spots. Regardless of the time of day (but especially in the evening), expect a long line of hungry tourists, locals and Japanese nationals (so you know it's good!) patiently waiting to get their noodle fix from the first Hawaii outpost of this beloved Japanese chain.

July 12, 2011

Maybe it’s because I’m a Pisces, but whenever I go to the beach, I need to be in the water, whether to float lazily around or surf Oahu’s legendary breaks.

Triple D Does Oahu
March 5, 2010

Sundays are my lazy days - the days I use to catch up on my guilty pleasures – trashy reality shows and fun Food Network shows that make my mouth water. Somewhere between “Keeping Up with The Kardashians” and watching “The Real Housewives” duke it out, I always make time for my favorite Food Network show, “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.”
