This Week: outfits I wore, water line flush, & husband’s birthday

It was such an exhausting week. After the three day weekend, my routine was completely thrown off. I had to let go of my entire routine when the Interagency Water System Team came into our neighborhood to flush our water line.

A couple months ago, we were told our water line was tainted with fuel. It was terrifying to hear at first because we weren’t sure what was actually going on with our water.

However, my family and pets didn’t experience any symptoms. We were told it was okay to use the water. So far, so good.. let’s hope nothing else happens along the way.

Besides that, we celebrated my husband’s birthday. We had reservations at 53 By The Sea. It was a beautiful dining experience. We didn’t see much of the view at night time but the ambiance inside made up for it.

Sliced hamachi with soy, lime & sesame sauce, red onions, jalapenos, crispy shallots, cilantro
Crispy fried tiger shrimp with macadamia nut honey glaze
Lobster meat , milk foam, crostini
3oz Ahi steak, stir fried vegetables, watercress relish, “truffle-yaki” sauce
4oz Filet mignon, asparagus, Maui onions, eryngi mushrooms, mashed potatoes, veal jus
Lilikoi coulis, crème fraiche, blood orange guimauve

We ordered the six course tasting without the wine pairing. The course started out good however it ended with a slight disappointment. The pan toasted filet wasn’t medium rare like how we wanted it to be. The souffle cheesecake sounded delicious but it was too tangy for our taste buds.

I would definitely recommend going to 53 By The Sea if you want more of an intimate dinner with your loved ones. We had reserved in the dining room and the tables were spaced out enough that it felt cozy and relaxing to enjoy our dinner.

I hope you all enjoyed your weekend 🙂


Happy New Year! Happy January!

Happy New Year! Happy January!

I hope everyone had a great New Year and got to celebrate it with family and friends. We stayed home most of the day to catch up on sleep and tidy up the house. We went out to eat to Boiling Crab in SALT at Kaka’ako. We normally order the crawfish combo with half pound of shrimp, clams, mussels; and it comes with corn, potatoes, sausage and rice. It was so delicious, and they always have great service.

After the New Year weekend, I had to recoup myself to work at my 9-5 and get back into my routine. The weather in Hawaii hasn’t been great especially with all of the rain and wind. I hope it gets better in a few weeks so I can enjoy the warm sun again.

I didn’t have much new year resolutions in mind for 2022, because I’ve been so preoccupied with unlearning old habits and incorporating new routines that I’m living in the moment and letting things flow.

Here are a few things I started to work:

  • Reading 1-2 chapter(s) each day to finish a book
  • Going on a small walk with my dogs to get fresh air
  • Logging on Instagram 3x per week to post content and consume for about an hour
  • Waking up early to get ready and workout my body

I learned that being more specific on what I wanted will become a natural habit. Some things are starting to stick but some are a work in progress. I will update in a few weeks how things are going.

Hope you have an amazing weekend 🙂
