Halloween in O’ahu

Screen Shot 2016-10-31 at 9.35.34 AM

 

The spookiest night of the year is nearly here, when your neighbors are more ghoulish than usual and you let your freak flag fly. Dressing up for the season is just half the fun, the best part of Halloween is getting lost in corn mazes, ghost tours, and picking the perfect pumpkin at the patch. Fortunately, you can enjoy all of those activities here on O‘ahu!

We’ll start out listing the events with the spookiest of the bunch, the Haunted Plantation. The plantation village is open for 10 nights of fright in Waipai. If you really want to know how freaky the village is, watch this trailer for the 2015 scare season. You can find another night of scare at the Nightmares Live. With thirty years of screams under their belt, you’ll find a worthwhile fright here. Last, but not least, is Scare Hawaii. This year their theme is deranged souls, and with that, you can count us in!

Who knew that O’ahu was loaded with haunted sites? Well, we did. But it’s all thanks to the O’ahu Ghost Tour we took last year. If you want to know how to scare visiting friends and family on the island, a ghost tour is a must-do.

As for pumpkin picking, you can find that at Aloun Farms and Waimanalo Country Farms. There, you, like Charlie Brown, can find your own great pumpkin.

5 Tips for Maintaining a ‘New Car Smell’

When the office and the beach are just a couple miles apart, as they are in Honolulu, your car is likely to feel the consequences. Taking the punches from swim trunks full of sand and to-go meals between point A and B, your car is bound to build up some stink! Odors from leftover food and humid air can leave you wishing the Hawaii heat away, but before you do, take a look at some of our simple tips that will help your car smell fresh and keep it that way.

 

Keep it clean!Screen Shot 2016-10-11 at 12.08.08 PM

We all eat in our car. There is no shame, but when you do, throw your trash away immediately! It’s scary how  stinky little crumbs and treats can leave your car  after just a few days.

 

Shake out your floormats!

Screen Shot 2016-10-11 at 12.08.51 PM

A quick shake here and there can prevent stench buildup from crumbs and sand. If you do not already have floormats, they are a great way to protect your car’s floor from food and dirt.

 

Never leave beach gear in your car!

The heat, plus the leftover saltwater on your towels, is a recipe for mildew disaster. Be sure to remove all beach gear before the night is through to ensure a satisfactory smell during your morning commute the next day.

 

Vacuum!

Next time you go to a car wash, find one that offers vacuums. Sucking up the bits of  grit and grime before they start releasing their stink can save you and your backseat drivers  some agony.

 

Select an odor neutralizer!

Screen Shot 2016-10-11 at 12.09.44 PM

Although pina colada and strawberries ’n’ cream air fresheners may jibe with your vibe, you may want to select an odor neutralizing scent in order to prevent nasty smells from building up.

Driving in Honolulu

What may be normal to us in Honolulu is strange to people on the mainland. Don’t believe us? We can begin by telling you that referring to citizens in the 48 states sandwiched between Canada and Mexico as mainlanders is unique to us Hawaiians. Hawaii’s uniqueness becomes more apparent as you take this theory to the streets.

image00

Driving in Hawaii is a learning experience for tourists and others new to the island. When receiving directions to Leonard’s Bakery, you may expect to hear the words “makai” and “makau”, or even North of [a popular landmark]. To us that’s completely normal, but in the rest of the states, you’ll expect to receive directions like “take a right here and a left on the next street”. Tourists may want to stick to a GPS for directions.

Rather than stating the amount of time a drive will take, mainlanders tend to reference distance from point A to B in miles. The two are quite interchangeable, but the amount of time it takes one person to make a drive compared to another can vary a lot. After all, we all have that friend that drives 95 mph on the H-1.

image01

Speaking of the H-1, we ll know that you must plan your day around rush hour or else… After all, Honolulu has some of the worst traffic in the country. And although many come here to vacay, we are here to stay, and so is rush hour traffic.
