Vacation Recap & Questions

Hi foodie readers!

As you probably know I’m back from vacay. I was wondering if you guys would be open to me adding a travel section or maybe just making another blog about travelling? I don’t travel too often, so this would not be updated a lot but I take tons of pictures and I can give detailed tips on what to do or see. I really need some feedback to motivate me, so hope to hear some comments soon!

Now for my recent vacation, I went to Hawaii for 2 weeks and here are some pictures I took.

  1. Hanauma Bay was definitely a highlight in my trip. I loved snorkelling and seeing all the fishes.
  2. I know the hibiscus is the state flower of Hawaii but I wanted to add one of Plumeria (aka Frangipani) since it’s one of my favourite flowers.
  3. As for the third picture, yes that is me trying to make fire from wooden sticks! Haha
  4. Ala Moana Beach Park, its right across the street from the Ala Moana Shopping Center
  5. Ala Moana Shopping Center – Central mall in Hawaii, almost 300 stores and restaurants.
  6. Lanikai Beach
