Adventures in good design, good eats, and everything else.

Hotel, motel, holiday inn

For my birthday festivities, my friends and I rented a hotel suite at the Ilikai Hotel for the weekend!

The suite had a living room, dining area, full kitchen, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and two balconies with views of both the city and the ocean. There were only a handful of close friends who partied and slept over. We had happy hour drinks and pupus at Chart House (not related the Chart House Restaurant chain, I believe) that was just around the corner from the hotel. The live band sang to me and gave me dessert—a happy surprise! Afterward, we went back to the room and the typical hotel party activities ensued, which, for me, meant a lot of Chambourd and Crystal Head Vodka .

It was everything I wanted a hotel party to be! More photos after the jump.

That night shot was the last one I took for the night as I probably forgot I had a camera at all. The next morning, coincidentally, was the 64th Annual Aloha Festivals Floral Parade. It began a little more than a block before our hotel so we were among the first to see the procession. The rest of our stay involved a lot of bed rolling, to say the least!

So, with that, lots of other things happened over the past week, coupled with my laziness, that prevented me from making any sort of update and they are as follows:

School has been hectic as always and my habit of skipping classes is not helping at all. My birthday and subsequent dinner was on Wednesday. Kim has been babysitting for this really wealthy family and I helped out on Thursday at their amazing house. I’ve finally got around to buying an external hard-drive and I have spent hours transferring data to it. Lastly, my Panasonic LX3 finally arrived (!!!) and I have been messing around with it non-stop. The learning curve seems pretty sharp but I’m determined to know everything about this little camera. I’ll post about it soon!
