 Waikiki Honolulu
 Diamond Head
 Hawaiikai & Koko head
Olomana 3 peak & Windward

I know I will love this trail, it's fairly easy and short that will take you 2-3 hrs in and out. This trail is pretty straight forward with not much up and down, mostly going up and not much falls summits. This is a good trail for Solo hikers and also a family hike.
This trail is up Waialae iki, just get a pass at the guard station and you are good to go. Just be careful on rainy or drizzling days because it can be slippery coming back down.

I went hiking solo today st Kuliouou ridge trail because my buddies are working and I cannot wait for the next hike with them. I choose Kuliouou ridge because I know the terrain and been here many times, another reason is I know it is a very safe place to hike solo since I always encounter people going solo on this trail before. You will always encounter people along the way so I consider this as a safe trail.
All I can say when you are hiking solo please be responsible. Always hike on a state trail where there is a check in station where you can log your name and time in just in case you get lost or accident happen also don't forget to log out. Inform your friends and love ones where you plan to hike and call or text them when you started to hike and always keep your phone with you.
This turned out to be a successful solo hike for me and this will be the beginning of more solo hikes that I might do in the future.

My husband is a contractor, when he finish a job he usually drive me by the project site and show me the finish product which he is proud that he did a good job. I love Japanese style garden because of its simplicity and ZEN. I just saw a house yesterday with garden water fountains; it was so adorable and looks so calm that it matches to the location of their house which is a semi wet area surrounded by lush mountains. That's a dream house on a perfect location for me.

Halo Halo is a Philippine favorite dessert especially during summer time when it's humid and warm. This refreshing dessert consist of shaved ice, scope of ice cream, sweetened fruits like (banana, red beans, white beans, jackfruit) purple yum, custard, tapioca, sugar palm, nata de coco, jelly and condense milk and evaporated milk. This is a perfect dessert for summer time.
I just had one yesterday and now I am craving for another one. I should have one tomorrow before I go to work.

Prepaid Cards

I agree that parents should get prepaid card for teenagers. This will help the teenagers be responsible on their spending and so convenient for their online purchased. Parents and family can easily load on their teenager's prepaid card. This is a very good idea especially when their teenagers are going school on other state which is so convenient for the parents to load their prepaid cards at home. It's also good idea when you do online shopping especially when you don't want to use your major cards and put your personal information online so prepaid credit card is a good option. 

Hawaiian POKE is made of raw tuna flavored with spices, some make it with cooked Tako (octopus), shrimp, raw crab and muscles. The flavors range from simple shoyu (soy sauce base), spicy kimchee, Hawaiian style and more. I'll always go for the simple authentic flavor which is Hawaiian style and shoyu, I don't really care for mayonnaise and too spicy which ruins the beautiful fish meat.
Thank you hubby for treating me lunch earlier at ONO Seafood located by Kapahulu, by far the best in town. I will definitely go back to this place and enjoy their Poke.

Army Gear

My husband and my brother-in-law love army gear. To make them both happy, I decided to give them both a gift card so they can get the items that they want from Ranger Up store online. They also have MMA gears. I was looking on woman's Army gear and wanted to get some shirt for my girl-friends, I'm sure they will love it. We could always wear the same shirt when we go hiking or does an "Army theme" hike.

Mojito to finish off the week.
Mojito Recipe: (my own)
6 oz light rum
1 can sierra mist (or Club soda)
2 sprigs mint
2 oz frozen juice of your choice  (passion fruit & apple... is our favorite)
half lime cut in circles
1 tray ice cubes

Me and my buddies are doing our running twice a week, after work during sunset. It is very good workout especially if we complete our 6miles running. Sometimes, on Friday night after we do our running when everybody are off the following day, we usually stay over my place and have a few mojito and jello shots to relax and calm our nerves.
