For my 25th birthday week (a.k.a #halfwayto50), we decided to stay in Hawaii for 9 days before heading out to East Asia.

We spent two days at Turtle Bay Resort in North Shore.

Although I’ve been to Hawaii many times, it was actually my first time at North Shore.

It was beautiful, but the Turtle Bay Resort itself is a total waste of money.

Their food sucks, no bottled water inside of resort, nothing much to do around the area and everything is so outdated.

 I paid nearly $600/night and It was seriously a total waste of money.

Water activities at their private beach was fun though.

Food at the resort.. I’m not even going to say anything.

Staffs at this resort aren’t even friendly.

Seriously hands down the worst resort I’ve ever been to in Oahu.

NEVER AGAIN.

Since there was absolutely nowhere to eat by the Turtle Bay Resort, I was so glad to move to Waikiki and enjoy walking around everywhere without having to worry about finding food.

Finally reunited with some decent Japanese food in Waikiki.

I laugh when girls take pictures with makeup and hashtag #allnatural #nomakeup #nofilter

Cause I know for a fact this is how you are supposed to look like when you don’t even have anything on your face..

I’m easy so all it really takes to make me smile is a cup of shaved ice.

My kind of breakfast!

I think I found my favorite Japanese restaurant in Hawaii.

Xoxo,
