Kung Hee Fat Choi — Chinese (and Vietnamese) New Year is Friday, and Greg Askew of Ono Pops said Candice Boxer (what is in store for this Earth Dog in the Year of the Brown Earth Dog?) is making a special chocolate Chinese five-spice pop to celebrate. It’s a limited edition. Candice only makes it for Chinese New Year, and once it’s gone, you gotta wait until next year.
Kudos to John McClure (yep, the real Amber was home for the event) on coordinating the very popular (no parking all the way up to the Daniel K. Inouye Technology Center!) chocolate demo (congratulations to Miguel Ghrisman on his first harvest!) ahead of Valentine’s Day, which is Wednesday.
Who’s dis guy Zavier Cummings (and where was Kawehi Louis Diamond’s mom?) who was packing in the crowd (the Tamra Martin home shirt was sold out already!) at Kukui Grove Center’s Deja Vu Surf Hawaii (did you get your Eat Dessert First tickets yet?) where Jim Jung joined Steve Soltysik in helping all those keiki create sailing canoe replicas?
