This podcast marks the 378th episode on the Hawaii Vacation Connection. Today Bruce and Yaling will talk about Hawaii vacation news, a recent iPad experience, some events happening in Hawaii, podcast listener questions and Hawaii package reviews. This podcast is brought to you by hawaii-aloha.com.
Over the weekend, Bruce and Yaling tested out the very first iPad to hit stores, but didn’t plan to purchase one because they’re not ‘first geners’ meaning they are not first generation buyers of brand new electronic gadgets. They enjoyed strolling though Ala Moana however, an international mall that is touted for its variety of shops and boutiques… and yes, ended up purchasing their very first iPad and joining the ‘first gener’ group.
Hear about the ‘What Chefs Eat’ app launch party that Bruce and Yaling recently went to, and learn about which hole-in-the-wall restaurants are good eats in Hawaii. This podcast focuses on restaurants so if you’re a foodie and looking to book a vacation to the islands, this is a great podcast to tune in to! There are also plenty of news topics in this show, from visitor spending to recent airline updates to the Merrie Monarch festival.
