Aloha everyone! It’s Thursday and it’s still raining in Manoa … and imagine my surprise when I saw us on the front page of this morning’s Star-Advertiser! Nadine Kam, the newpaper’s fashion writer, wrote a great article on our IOLANI story. A huge MAHALO! to Nadine and the Star-Advertiser, and to my buddy Susan Sunderland, for being so supportive of us!!
Won’t be playing golf today because we have to prepare for a private reception at our new IOLANI store. It’s probably a good thing, though, since my wrist is still very sore. And although the store won’t be open for another week, we’ve already had visitors dropping by to take a peek. We were supposed to open on July 1st, but we ran into some last-minute construction delays that pushed our opening back a couple of weeks – sorry!
My sister and I went to GS Karaoke in Waikiki last night for a farewell party for our dear friend, Misako, who is moving back to Japan this month.:-(( We really had a nice time and want to thank Mina, Miwa, and Misa for providing such great food and entertainment! You guys gotta here these girls sing … they’re GOOD!
