One day, I was in the laundry room and there was a guy who started chatting it up. He looked like a surfer. Long blond hair and a goatee. When we got into the elevator, he started speaking fluent Japanese to his roommate. I don't know why I found it amazing, considering that I was already aware everyone pretty much speaks Japanese, but I did. I asked him how he learned. He said he lived in Japan for several years. He's retired now but he was a translator for the Navy and was fluent in five languages. Incredible.
Found this awesome place at Ala Moana called Shirokiya. I felt like I was transported to Japan. So many different kinds of Japanese foods. The overhead speakers and everybody around me spoke in Japanese.
Takoyaki yay! My favourite. Octopus in battered balls.
Found a yummy frozen yogurt place inside where we could pour our own. This was honeydew and strawberry.
