To Honolulu
Guess what? I lost my luggage at the Hawaiian Airlines' baggage claim. Kainis! Siguro, nadelay dahil I wasn't able to tip the porter.

Aloha Tower Lunch
Lunch at Aloha Tower was "onolicious." Spending time with my colleagues from Marc overlooking Pearl Harbor. Aloha Tower during its heyday used to welcome dozens of cruise liners in the early 20th century. A Norwegian Cruise Lines (NCL) cruise ship was docked to allow her passengers check out the city's shopping disctrict. I had a shrimp curry for lunch. There's so much food variery here in Oahu compared to Maui.

Annual Blossom
This is the moment that we've been waiting for. We are oceans apart and through thick and thin we have conquered our place in the sun. We are blessed to have each other. I love you. To destiny.

Aloha Kimo
My brother picked me up from the airport from my Honolulu trip. And this evening, they are flying home to Virginia. Having a family reunion has been one of the best highlights of 2005. Our father would be as well so happy to see us together. I believe in family. Let us make a family.

The Hardest Work
"Writing is the hardest work in the world. I have been a bricklayer and a truck driver, and I tell you -- as if you haven't been told a million times already -- that writing is harder. Lonelier. And nobler and more enriching." – Harlan Ellison
