Chocolate cream pie from Sunnyside Bakery:  Pie is one of my  favorite things in life and this Wahiawa bakery creates my all-time favorite.

Zoku Quick Pop Maker:  Got this cool contraption for Christmas. I’m fascinated by how it can make popsicles in 7 minutes.

Garmin GPS wristwatch:  I use it for running. I started with the basic model, the Forerunner 110, but have upgraded to the Forerunner 405 (shown at right).

Baldwin’s Sweet Shop: I wonder if the long lines at some shave ice stands make the icy treat seem tastier than it actually is. I’ve never been disappointed at Baldwin’s in Waimalu, and never had to wait either.

Vietnam Café Pho Saigon: There’s something calming about a bowl of noodles and my current favorite is the pho nam at Saigon. I always mean to order something different, but never do.

Honolulu Zoo: The best deal in town, the zoo’s chimpanzee-level membership gets you unlimited annual admission for two adults and up to four children, and discounts to purchases inside, all for $55. Two words: spider monkeys.

Waimanalo Beach Park: The white-sand beach also known as Sherwood Forest is my favorite because there’s plenty of parking and the waves never get big enough to kill me.

Kale: Sure, it’s a bit bitter and tough, but it’s also a superfood and can be substituted in any recipe that calls for a leafy green. And, like most other things, it tastes great fried.

Hawaii State Public Library System: Keeping a lot of books and other media around the apartment is a dust-filled pain, so why not use the library? Membership is free and I always find something interesting (including this magazine).

Netflix: No commercials and the chance to OD on all the TV series you’ve missed over the years.

Discus Fish: “King of the aquarium,” the discus is an acquired taste. Regal, and usually slow moving, a discus is boring until you realize it is watching you.

My Weber Grill: Ribs, steak, fish. Mmmm. Yes, I know, it’s not a “Green Egg.” Yet.
