Sorry for not updating my blog on a rather regular basis. Looking through my posts, it seems I only update and post on the weekends. I guess there's nothing really exciting to share during the week that you have not heard from me when I vent about school or work. Neither has changed so I shall not bore you with details.

How is everyone's weekend so far? As for me, it was yet another sorta busy weekend! I tell you, March has been a really bad month for moi because it will not let me stay home during the weekend where I should be studying and completing my assignments instead of procrastinating and waiting until the day before it's due to start stressing. Yeah, I've made myself sit in the corner and stare at the blank white walls as punishment! *grins* Anyway, coming back to this weekend...there was a couple intteresting things going on in Honolulu. Thursday through Sunday, the Hawaii Conventional Center played host to the First Hawaiian International Auto Show. Here you get your first look into all the new vehicle models as well as some exotics! Although the two of us are car freaks, we did not go. I just was not in the mood to deal with the crowds and the thought of trying to find parking closeby! If I remember correctly, the first and last time I actually went to the auto show was back in 2000.

Again, another parade in Waikiki along Kalakaua Avenue on Saturday to commemorate Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalanianaole Day, where Monday is a state holiday honoring the prince (I, on the other hand, do not get this holiday). A little info: Prince Kuhio is best remembered for his successful effort to get Congress to pass the 1920 Hawaiian Homes Commission Act, which provides homesteads for native Hawaiians. It was his dream to save the rapidly declining Hawaiian race from extinction. His plan was to return tenement dwellers to the land and encourage them to be self-sufficient farmers, ranchers and homesteaders on leased parcels of reserved land. I was planning to go see it with R, however we didn't make back into town in time from Waialua before they officially closed and blocked the streets to where I was planning to go look for a parking stall. So instead of circling the block and wasting gas, we drove off to Tantalus instead. I'd forgetten how to go up there so we got lost for abit before finally heading up the right direction. We couldn't go all the way because the roads are still closed so we had to detour and drive back from where we first came. Below are some pictures taken during the drive.

Today, R and I slept in before waking up a little past 10am to get ready for some outdoor adventure. We'd planned to go on a short (not at all short for me) hike up Diamond Head Crater; a 1.2 km wide volcanic tuff ring. I should have been more prepared. Diamond Head is still military property, but is open for drives and short hikes to the edge of the crater's rim, from which point both the city of Waikīkī and the Pacific Ocean can be seen in breathtaking detail. Paths for the hike are well defined. There are steps and dark tunnels through old war bunkers. You will then climb approximately 100 stairs. The stairs are real stairs as opposed to dirt or lava and really steep too. You will then pass through a second tunnel. After a few more stairs, you are at the lower level of the top of Diamond Head. There are a few levels to climb to very top. You will see a spectacular 365-degree view of Oahu. This is a great place to have binoculars and, of course, a camera. It was not a really clear day, nevertheless, the views was great just not all picture perfect! Depending on your pace, the trek will take one hour uphill and 45 minutes back down. Overall, let's just say it was more fun coming back down than going up! Those steps were a killa! Must remember to bring water the next time because I was literally dying before I got to the top but I'm proud to say I survived it!
