Lucid Moments – Image

2014_01_03_IMG_9999_216-2

Those passing, fleeting moments….

Staggered memories congeal into rancid aromas of past deviancy

bloated expectations from delusional practitioners dancing madly

in single expressions of a lucid moment in my becoming still.

Sometimes, we just want to give up

throw in the towel, walk away

become a ghost.

Sometimes, we go out of our minds.

Mini Adventure–The East Coast Trip

IMG_20140101_002401

Yes, it’s that time of year again, the beginning of a new year, few days into it and nothing to do other than relax and spend Smile So, I thought I’d go on a little mini-trip to the east coast of NZ. I was last there over 10 years ago, and have wanted to get back for a while…..

My actual plan for the trip was to start at Gisborne,

and then end the trip at Opotiki,

which basically is basically the east peninsula area (below)

And so I started to prep for the trip, and in doing so I thought I’d advertise in the local to see if anyone wanted a ride from Auckland to Gisborne or part there of, and as luck would have it i connected with two gals who were in Rotorua and wanting to get to Gisborne, so that was kool.

 

So, here we go.. instead of posting countless images and making this blog silly-big.. here’s a trip video instead. Smile

This video is best viewed in HD, full screen Smile

…..later in the afternoon….

Well had me a rest and cleanup and got the car and went random.

Didn’t actually have a destination in mind but ended up at the Temple Village.. of which there were a few temples and a small village..

image

Ok so mostly it was a Japanese temple…

So then I carried on.down whatever random road I was on and saw this old ruin..
image

It was old and ruined.
image

Any hoo I carried on with a peckish feeling in my tummy.. and I found this place…
image

And oh my god… I had a garlic shrimp with salad on rice.. it was Devine. …..

Had a chat with Sham, the owner.. very chill dude… was kool to know he has relations living in NZ. Small world eh. :)

If you’re ever in Hawaii on Oahu .. go to that place… The address is:
56-565 Kamehameha Kahuku.

So that about ended the photos.. it was dark by the time I was ready to hit the road.. so I ended up driving to the North Shore and then cut back through the middle of the island back to Honolulu.

Freshened up and now I’m going to go for a night walk though to waikiki and the strip and see what’s buzzing.
