Love in Pearl Harbour

December 7, 1941. It was a Sunday morning........

This was description for the one of my favourite and yet meaningful old movie- Pearl Harbour! I love this movie especially the how is the love which develop in that movie. And how to choose between your love one and best buddy. For those of you who never watch, I strongly recommend it and I watched it for 2 or 3 times ^^.

If you watched Pearl Harbour before, certainly you will know Arizona. This picture is Arizona memorial where lots of the U.S. army was sacrificed during the assault of the Japanese in Pearl Harbour. Until today the ship which is under the Arizona Memorial still leaking its oil from the sunken ship at the bottom and they named it "the tears of Arizona".

As the lover of that movie, I certainly won't miss my lifetime opportunity to visit to Pearl Harbour when I was in Honolulu. I still remember that previous night I went to Pearl Harbour, I party hard with my Fijians friends and only manage to sleep for 2 hours back in Hale Manoa (dormitory name) and get my ass of the bed and take the cab to Pearl Harbour.

Pearl Harbour is the strength of the military in Hawaii and it is the history moment of World War II. I can only describe Pearl Harbour in one word which is awesome. I visited some of the ship such Missouri, Bowfin and the Arizona memorial site.

On board of the Bowfin vessel. I don't really recall the ticket, I think is USD 50 for 4 vessel visit.

Not to forget great friends of mine from Fiji Island, Singapore and Malaysia on the board of Missouri where the surrender letter of Japan emperor to the U.S. was signed.

Finally, Popeye the Sailorman! Obviously I am definitely lack of spinach and do listen to your mum to eat spinach next time ya?

Love in Waikiki beach

I fall in love with Waikiki beach in Honolulu back in few months ago when i travel to Hawaii. Honolulu is the main city of Hawaii and it's located in the island of Oahu. The first place that must go is the Waikiki beach. Waikiki beach is one of famous tourist destination and I have been hanging around with some of friends when I was in Oahu.Well, Waikiki is pretty much a tourist area with lots of expensive stuff but indeed they do have a lovely beach and absolutely a great place for surfing.

It's definitely a lovely place to go. Sorry for the picture cos I took it with my 5megapixel phone camera & it's not quite clear though.

And also with lots of hot chicks with bikini. ^^

A picture of Christina & me and she is going to come to Malaysia in this year^^

Surfing! You mut try this when you go to Waikiki beach and it costs around USD 40 for a beginner lesson and you'll get an instructor. And seriously do practice hard to swim before you learn to surf cos you need to be a good swimmer.

Look at how big is the surfboard actually are! I have been seen a lot of people in the airport carrying around their surfboard and I am so envy that they can have their own surfboard and surf around the world. Perhaps one day I need to have one of those. And it is not cheap, it costs around USD 500+ and it costs more for those fancy one.

Having great time when we get ourselves into the water in Hawaii and some of my friends claim to saw Humunukuku Apua'a (Hawaiian legendary fish). Seriously, I had been try hard to pronounce it when I pronounce it at first. And the water is so bliss and it's so clear crystal. You will definitely wanna jump into the water when you are near the beach.

A picture of a surfboard at Hawaii beach. I think it match the bush at the back and I just can't describe it. Perhaps it tells a story of a traveller behind it.
