Fun, Fun, Fun

Well, we finally made to Ala Moana center. Its huge! Apparently its the largest open air mall in the world. Yes, when you are inside the mall, you are still outside! You can see the sky and potentially get rained on. Each store has its own set of, if it rains, they are protected. This mall has super high-end stores. I don't feel worthy of window shopping at some of them. Versace, Ferragamo, Betsey Johnson, Gucci, Coach, Chanel, Armani, etc. I stick to what I know...Macy's, Nordstrom, and Sears...heheh! No, I haven't actually shopped much...just wondered around. The Sears has a whole Hawaiian attire would be equivalent to all of the UK clothes sections in stores back home. Its awesome!

We also made it to the movies. Consolidated Theaters...entertaining Hawaii since 1917. There is a 16 cinema in walking distance from our condo. The cool part is that they sell toasted nuts and fresh fruit in addition to all of the normal movie snacks. When was the last time you went to the movies and ordered warm cinnamon sugar macadamia nuts or a chocolate dipped frozed banana?? OH YUM! Of course, they do have just plain old apples and oranges, but I had to splurge a little on the chocolate banana.

Not far from the movies is a Dave & Busters. For those of you who don't know, its an adult version of Chuck E Cheese.This place is huge...three stories! Hawaii has no legalized gambling, so this is the closest you can get...playing ski ball for a stuffed animal. Did I mention that Hawaiians love to gamble? They consider Las Vegas the 9th Island. We see and hear about this constantly on TV. Its the top travel destination for Hawaiians...Especially a place called The California Hotel. Who knew?
