Several joyful events occurred today. First our friends Connie and William from Ohio called to wish us a happy anniversary. We met this lovely couple on our last cruise to the Caribbean. We share the same anniversary date except it is a year apart.
Our breakfasts in Hawaii are extra special due to the wonderful "Sunrise" papaya from Kauai. Their meat is firmer and taste superior than the more common yellow variety.
The two of us took a city Bus to Ala Moana Center, the largest shopping mall in Hawaii. This mall is also the 7th largest shopping mall in the United States and it is the largest open-air shopping center in the world. We had lunch at the Shirokiya Food Court.
J.J. had a bowl of Tantan mein, a spicy noodle dish while I had healthy boiled vegetables.
Josué and Justin replaced the battery of my old iPhone. With a new battery, the phone should last for another 2 years.
The highlight of this day was having dinner with our dear friends, Keoki and Alethea. Assagios Restaurant in Kahala was a perfect choice. Over an excellent meal, we had a chance to catch up with our lives since our last visit to the islands.
Our appetizer of fried calamari and my garlic sautéed opakapaka were excellent. Keoki ordered very rich desserts, but I was able to restrain myself :-)
Aloha -- Cathi
