Despite the rainy season, the weather was sunny ever since arrived in Honolulu. Today, walked along the beach to Waikiki. On the way, found a nice cafe, Koa Oasis.
Steak Shack and Banan located in front of the Outrigger Reef Waikiki Hotel. Banan here was a newly opened store focusing on shave ice.
Banan was founded in 2014 by four young people with the concept of "Farm to Table. They offered healthy ice cream without any dairy products or sugar. They used fruits grown on Oahu, local honey, chocolate, and nuts for local production for local consumption. The original Monsarrat Avenue location, operated by a food truck, closed in August 2019, and the remaining locations were in Waikiki (beach access next to the Cheesecake Factory) and Kailua.
The beach seen from the lobby of Royal Hawaiian Hotel. The beach here was always shining.
The beginning of February would be Chinese New Year. Chinese New Year decorations are now seen at the Royal Hawaiian Center, but they were smaller and more subdued than before Covid.
The decorations for Chinese New Year here were also small. There used to be a sign that welcomed Chinese tourists with open arms.
The Chinese New Year in the central plaza of Ala Moana Center, which visited the other day, was also modest. Perhaps because it was the source of Covid, Chinese New Year was small scale everywhere.
The beach at the Hilton, formally Duke Kahanamoku Beach. It was named after the legendary Hawaiian swimmer and surfer.
In the evening, had salmon meuniere and sauteed potatoes with fennel.
