My favorite things!
++Movies, actors/actresses: Anything with Eddie Murphy, Adam Sandler, Sandra Bullock, Kate Hudson. I love any type of comedy because I love to laugh.
++Books/authors: When I read, I fall asleep.
++Magazines: Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, Consumer Reports
++Websites: Too many to mention.
++Albums, bands/artists: I still like "fore" from Huey Lewis and the News -- the very 1st CD I ever purchased. And when I'm kickin back with friends and family or taking my daily walk, I love listening to a lot of Hawaiian (local) music and some reggae.
++Sports, teams: Not into any except for maybe the NFL playoffs and the Super Bowl.
++Places to shop, spend money: Tamura's in Kaimuki...I love their wine selection and awesome poke
The trend I still don't get is: On guys -- the baggy pants draggin on the ground and hanging below the waist to show the brief or boxer band. On women -- the 'super duper tight' as low as possible jeans/pants.
Even while I live in paradise, I dream about visiting: My homeland of Portugal "viva la Portugal"
One of the things I really appreciate about living in Hawaii is: Its people and those that have adopted the "Spirit of Aloha." After all, we are all in this life together, so let's make the most of our one shot at this awesome life. :)
