The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. According to site statistics, the Tasty Island was viewed about 1,100,000 times in 2015. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 47 days for that many people to see it. And if Pomai got paid $1 for each one of those visits, he could contribute generously to help those in need, put in for early retirement, pay off his mortgage, take a boat cruise around Europe, and buy that “midlife crisis” convertible Ferrari he’s had his eyes on. lol

Pomai’s 2015 Picks
Above are all hard statistical facts. On a personal note, some of my favorite posts this year were the following (in no particular order), mainly because I really enjoyed the process that went into creating them, it has special meaning to me, and/or, the food and/or event was simply OUTSTANDING!:
- Hawaiian Airlines New First Class Featured Chef Series
- Kailua First Byte: Boots & Kimo’s
- Aloha ‘Oe Tsu Ling
- 2015 Hawaii Prince Oktoberfest
- 2015 Honolulu Intertribal Powwow
Finally, I lost major weight again in 2015, thanks to a SWEAT LOAD of hiking my favorite East Oahu trails, swimming a lot at the beach, and walking a lot, with otherwise no special diet, except for of course eating a sensible, well-balanced meal (for the most part). I’m currently back down to 170 lbs., give or take 3 or 4 pounds. Here I am today (kinda’ dorky, yet very real photo, literally taken this morning, 12/31/15 before starting work), clocking in at 169 lbs (5’9″ height)…
That all said, to You and Yours, Hau’oli Makahiki Hou! Happy New Year 2016! Kanpai!
