Around Hawaii :: Go-Kart, Gelato, Mushroom Ravioli

“Cottonmouth” after her embarrassing crash

Last weekend, Hubzilla and I celebrated our oneness rather differently. When he suggested that we try go-karting, I said why not? I conquered ATV many times with all might and power so I thought it’s going to be easy peasy…..NOT! 

So after creating our respective profiles at Groove Hawaii, me as Cottonmouth and him as Black Mamba (the same race name we use when we go ATV-ing), we were escorted to the track and given dummy-proof instructions: red pedal for break, green for gas. The steering wheel is powered by gas, the faster you drive the easier it is to maneuver, the slower the more difficult it is to turn. Long story short, I crashed three times I had to quit even before the 8-minute race is over. Bummer I know!!!! But it was a fun experience, yeah right…mostly laughing at my own stupidity!

Black Mamba in his rare blog appearance, hahaha!

After my failed Formula One attempt, we headed to Neiman Marcus because I wanted to check the newly-launched Gucci Beauty in person. I was disappointed to learn that it has not reached our Hawaiian shores yet, at least that’s what the counter lady told me. C’mon, my day can’t be that bad right? Quick solution? Sephora haul no less! 

With growling tummies, we headed to Romano’s Macaroni Grill. I had mushroom ravioli while hubs had steak (he was teasing me how he can never be a vegetarian and that I’m missing all the good stuff). I purposely omitted dessert because I saw a new gelato place on our way to this restaurant.

Feeling quite full, I had to satisfy my sweet tooth. It’s the weekend peeps, I can indulge!

I went with my instinct and loved it to gut! Sea-salt caramel for moi and mango for hub.

Proof of life: Sephora and Gelato!

Finally we went to Verizon to upgrade my iPhone 5. Despite the bad “bending” rumors, I went ahead with iPhone 6 Plus (for delivery end October). Trick or treat, woot!

’til our next “Around Hawaii” post zillas,

    My husband is a Kill Bill fanatic!! What a fun day out!

    I spy pineapple gelato in your photo- that's my pick! The more I read about the Gucci Beauty line the less enthusiastic I become. Maybe I just expect too much…
    And I probably would have crashed MORE than three times, if that makes you feel any better. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      you and I will probably vie for the "most crashed" medal, haha! I reviewed (and will review) Gucci makeups, stay tuned!

    Wow, what a day! So much fun ๐Ÿ™‚ I have another 8 months on my iPhone 5 contract. I'll be curious to find out how you like the 6 Plus. I was wondering if it my be a substitute for the iPad mini that i've been wanting to replace my old iPad?

      can't wait for my phone to arrive. I chose it over Samsung note 4 (w/c my husband got) because I'm more familiar w/ iphone/Apple. I'll probably do a comparison when it gets here…

  6. October 6, 2014 / 6:41 pm

    What a fun time! I wanna hang in Hawaii now! Not that I didn't before.. but now I have more things on my list to do ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • October 8, 2014 / 6:12 am

      awesome! there are so many things to do here that aren't so touristy!!!

  7. October 6, 2014 / 7:57 pm

    What an amazing day out! I have to upgrade my seriosuly old Samsung S2, but I havenยดt decided yet if I should go with iPhone 6 or Samsung s5.

    • October 8, 2014 / 6:14 am

      I went w/ iPhone 6 plus coz I'm more familiar w/ iPhone/apple ; hub went for samsung note 4 because he's more comfy w/ samsung… so maybe go w/ your comfort level?

    It's the best when hubby and I get different flavors and I can try his. Lol. Perks of marriage!

  9. October 7, 2014 / 5:43 am

    Mmmm mango gelato. I'm with your hubby, mango beats all other flavors!

  10. October 7, 2014 / 6:51 am
