Brah, no can! Dat’ buggah stay way mo’ hod (hard) ‘den “Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers.” Talk about majah tongue twistah! I can barely say it once! LOL!!!
BTW, if you can read Japanese, I’m curious what it says above the fish. Please translate, onegaishimasu.
I was at the always exciting KCC Farmers Market this morning for my ritual Saturday morning veggie hunt, where I noticed these neat local kine grindz dish towels for sale at the Hawaii Farm Bureau General Store tent, located at the entrance to the market. While I didn’t ask, they appear new to this market, as I would have noticed them before, otherwise. They’re produced by Hilo native, artist Grant Kagimoto under his company Cane Haul Road, costing $8 each.

Speaking of going home to cook rice, I’m in the market for a new Zojirushi rice cooker, the made in Japan model, of course. I’ve been scouring eBay for deals, but it looks like Amazon got the best deal so far because of free shipping. I’m still debating whether to fork out the extra kala (money) for the induction heat model. The only thing I don’t like about the Zojirushi IH model is the pot design. Looks hard to clean.
For you non-islander folks not in the know, “kaukau” or “kau kau” means “eat” in pidgin English, where it sounds like native Hawaiian, however its derivative is actually Cantonese, dating back to Hawaii’s plantation era, loosely coming from “chow chow”.
Portuguese Sausage, Eggs & Rice is one of the most popular breakfast dishes in Hawaii. So popular, McDonald’s of Hawaii serves it as a featured regular breakfast menu item.
For you graphic artists out there, notice Grant uses the Cooper Bold font, which is the same font used for the Hormel SPAM logo.
My dad used to say “duck soup” as a slang for something that’s simple to do. E.G, “Wow dad, you fixed the refrigerator really quick!”, which he’d reply “Ah, duck soup.”
Brah, no fugu with me, you fugu-er. lol
I just bought Daikon at the farmers market this morning. Was just $1 for a massive one. Maybe I’ll make Okinawan Pig’s Feet Soup with it. Sounds good!
Shame to admit it, but I NEVER EVER tried Ulu (Samoan Breadfruit) in my life. Time to hit Tammy’s Polynesian Market and give it a try!
While I was there taking these photos, I ran into my cousin Rex and his lovely new wife Cam. As you know they just got married this past May, where you can check out their beautiful wedding here.
Until next time, toodles! ;-)
