PLANEWONDER AND HER HAWAIIAN BABYMOON

I’mma do a mad throwback since it’s Thursday!


I scored 2 x free return tickets from Jetstar | #JetstarHappiness to fly to any destination they operated to before I found out I was pregnant last year. Our plan was to travel to Tokyo in March as Francis’ birthday treat, eat our way to the other parts of Japan and more importantly to witness the cherry blossoms in full bloom. Sadly, that plan had to be canned because baby decided to arrive in March!

We did think of still going to Japan for my babymoon, but I couldn’t imagine myself waddling across the Shibuya Crossing and to top it off I was already getting tired pretty quickly at this point albeit being only 5 months pregnant. Oh, and the bigger issue – I wouldn’t be able to eat all the sushi and sashimi that I have always dreamed of having over there.

So.. We decided on… Hawaii.

It was the perfect destination getaway (for a whale) although we were there the previous year for a wedding. We stayed at the Moana Surfrider, A Westin Resort & Spa, Waikiki Beach where we had direct access to the beach but spent most of our time poolside because it was pretty impossible for me to get into a comfortable position. I totally get what beached whales feel like the poor things.

We didn’t realise until we got there that we were flying out on Black Friday. We thought we were going to be losing out but there were tons of sales leading up to it so it still did some decent damage to our bank account. Most of the stuff we got was for baby anyway (which she would grow out of within the next minute – not even exaggerating) so it was all good! It was a good thing we hadn’t started shopping before then for her because we managed to get everything on crazy discounts. My massive suitcase was filled with her stuff as I came with barely nothing thinking I would be shopping for myself. Boy was I wrong. Ala Moana Shopping Centre never disappoints – even if I had to miss out on shopping for myself!

Cafe Iyasume is a must when you’re in Waikiki. We practically had to have Spam Musubi every single day! It would be a sin not to have it when you’re there.

Okay. That is all. Wishing we were back in Hawaii right now!

PLANEWONDER VISITS HAWAII, USA

Never had I ever imagined that I would be visiting Hawaii one day. But that day came 2 weeks ago. Say what?

Well I had a purpose to visit to say the least. It was the destination wedding of an amazing couple who had invited us to attend. Of course, we couldn’t say no!

Enjoy a few snapshots of the places visited while on ground.

WAIKIKI BEACH

I was even lucky enough to catch a couple of waves in Waikiki the day before the wedding!

TO SURF, ONE MUST BE PATIENT

SURF’S UP IN WAIKIKI

Cruisin’ down Kalakaua Avenue. Plenty of shopping that was done over there!

Check out Buho Cantina if you’re ever in Waikiki. Their tacos are ah-may-zing!

LANIKAI PILLBOX TRAIL VIEW

We did the Lanikai Pillbox Trail. Google mentioned the first 5 minutes of the track was the hardest. Thought to ourselves, “Yeah, right. As if”. It turned out to be true. Derp. We had to pull ourselves up using tree branches and whatever we could get our hands on because the 5 minute incline was just a muddy stretch. Our shoes got mad soiled, so a tip would be to not put on your best shoes for this hike. The rest of the hike was la-dee-dah! And once you’re up there.. The view is money.

We also visited Giovanni’s Shrimp Truck and Matsumoto’s Shaved Ice. Yeah. I don’t have any photos because I was busy stuffing my face!

Watched our last sunset beachfront at the Westin Moana Surfrider Resort & Spa with different live bands playing. Truly an unforgettable evening and trip.

LAST SUNSET IN HAWAII
