I tagged along with my friend Dudley who went there for a work conference/retreat. He was in chill mode so I did alot of swimming, shopping and drinking!!! Would love to go back & do some more touristy stuff. I didn’t wanna venture too far out by myself and end up missing like the tourist in Aruba.
We stayed at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Beach Resort, a beautiful & humongous complex that was in the perfect location. The beach was right in front of us, Ala Moana Shopping center to the left (an endless shopping adventure) and Kalakaua Ave to the right. Kalakaua Ave can best be described as much more fun version of Rodeo Drive.
We went to an evening luau and it was just as cool as it looks on TV. Complete with fire dancers, they even had adorable Polynesian girls handing out the leis. As much as I love flowers, I was in flower heaven in Hawaii. *CLICK the video & take a peak of the fire dancers*

While Dudley was maxin & relaxin, I took a shuttle to the Waikele Premium Outlets & did what I do best… shopped & goofed off! I was having way too much fun with the kids working in the Skateboard shop & came pretty close to missing the shuttle for the airport.
