I was just thinking, Yuko Yamaguchi-san is the second cute designer I've met with Patrick in Hawaii! Last year in August, we also met Tabuchi, the owner of SPANK. I think that blog post was lost, so I'll recap!
We met up at Waiola Shave Ice in Honolulu, a tasty place to grab some refreshment. I like it because they offer local flavor options, like my favorite, azuki bean. There's an attached gift shop where you can buy the usual snack fare and tee shirts from Waiola Shave ice.
Just don't make this mistake: Patrick and I thought it would be a short walk from Ala Moana Mall, but boy were we wrong! We hiked through (hot and sunny) residential areas in full lolita, which is not the best way to stay fresh. When we finally found the street, Waiola was easy to find. Parking was scarce though!
We did so much with Tabuchi- searching for a Goodwill that didn't exist, visiting the Pirates of the Caribbean Black Pearl in Kaneohe, listening to The Blue Hearts. We wrapped up the day with Purikura at Fun Pix, just when it started to drizzle.
It just goes to show you, you never really know what can happen from day to day! Whenever Patrick and I go out together in loli, something exciting happens. ♪♪
