It’s around mid-morning now and I’m sitting in my office at Iolani Sportswear.  It was much cooler today than the past few days so I hope we’ll finally get some relief from the hot weather.  Alex is starting to work on material for our 3rd CD which we plan to debut in early 2010.  I have a feeling that this one will reflect MDNA’s growth since NO PLACE LIKE HOME debuted 2 years ago.

We’re taking our good friend, Gregg, out for some drinks tonight to celebrate his birthday which was last week … we’ll probably go to Tsukuneya, a Japanese restaurant located near the University of Hawaii.  They have great food and good nihonshu or sake.  Plus … it’s close to our home!

Aloha,

      Hey Reiko,
      We were going to go to Tsukuneya this past Tuesday night, but they were closed (?) so we went to Tokkuritei instead.

      Aloha Reiko!

      I’ll ask the boys but I’m sure we can perform a live acoustic version of “Only In Hawaii” for your listeners down at Studio Rim. We should be finalizing our schedule for our July trip to Japan shortly, so I’ll let you know as soon as it’s available.

      Ja ne,

    Aloha Kawakami-san,

    It sounds magnificent to show “Only In Hawaii” Studio Rim acoustic special edition to listeners.
    And could you change the time of public recording from 11:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.?
    I apologize for your inconvenience.

    Jaaa neee,
