Shave Ice Cravings  
It might've been the hot, humid weather today or the fact that I haven't been drinking the amount of water that I normally drink, but today I was SO thirsty. No matter what I drank, I couldn't seem to quench my thirst. :P For some odd reason, I was craving "shave ice" - which is the Hawaii version of a snow cone... There used to be a great place Mark & I used to go to in Waikele called Crispies where they'd make a Passion Orange shaved ice with a wet li hing mui on the bottom. :) (Okay, so it may not be really appetizing to many of you, but my Hawaii friends understand) ;) It was the most delicious thing ever. Unfortunately, they closed a few years ago and so Mark and I had to go and look for a comparable shave ice place today.

We ended up at Baldwin's - which wasn't too far from our house. Mark ordered a small Pina Colada shave ice and I ordered a large Passion Fruit - which I finished so quickly that it didn't even have a chance to melt on me! And I was STILL so thirsty after that - I ended up going to Zippys and buying another drink there. :P Wonder why I was so dehydrated today?

Even as I'm typing this... I just came from downstairs where I just downed an entire Snapricot Orange Snapple. :O And I think I'm going to have to go back downstairs in a bit and down some water as well... :P What's going on? :P

The fitting for the dress for Susan's wedding went rather well on Thursday. :) The lady who alters the dresses was so concerned because she had to cut SO much off the bottom of my dress that she wanted me to come back to try on again in a week or so. I think she's cutting nearly five inches off the bottom! :O Yes, being short does have its disavantages. :P

Other than that this weekend has been all about studying for my 24. :P Funny how the book is so much smaller than the 7 - the information seems to be a lot less than the 7, yet I'm having such a hard time getting through the material. :P I'm hoping to take my exam on the 10th of this month - so I'd better start getting a little more serious about it. :P

I'm off to study and raid the refridgerator for something else to drink. :P I can't, for the life of me, figure out why I'm so thirsty today! :P

funny I was dreaming about shave ice the other day. I like the redbean shave ice you can get at the chinese places in Chinatown. Yum.... it's called ice kachang here in Malaysia (kachang = beans).

Should try it sometime... the place we went to was called Oriental Cafe. On Nuuanu Ave (if I remember correctly)

You know, I never tried red bean in shave ice before! I know it's an option though because I've seen it at Crispies before they closed. I'll have to check out that place on Nuuanu Ave. :) Sounds delicious! :)

it's a South East Asian favorite. That's the way they eat it here. I love it with the beans, condensed milk and crushed ice... yummmy! I think that restaurant is on Nuuanu or the other main one that intersects (two blocks) Fort St/Beretania/King.. oh my I am starting to forget names already...And it was the street I lived on! he he
