I try to do something different/special on my birthdays to mark the start of a new year. Even though my birthday was on the 8th, this year I decided to do something I've never done before. Luckily for me, my friend Tasha decided to join me. Lol i guess I should send a thanks to her (new) husband Ed Morita, for not putting the kaibosh on the whole idea, though he did miss out on the fun. Thumbs up  if you want me to do more of these adventures, leave a comment down for suggestions on what to do next. I hear parasailing has kamaaina rates too.

Here's the link to North Shore Shark adventures, and I should have said in the video prices are subject to change.

This just makes me giggle, amid all the controversy and stuff. TMT is a canon http://www.maunakeaandtmt.org/the-tmt-project-utilizing-canons-world-leading-optics-technologies/

Happy #internationalwomensday. I thought about making a post highlighting the (specific) women around me who I find inspirational, but I find that distasteful. Simply because the list would go on endlessly and I know i'd forget someone. Also creating a list of women just seems so Romneyesque. I'm not going to claim that I am a full gender equalicist, but I have tried to always treat women equally. Esp after a trip back to Hong Kong a few years ago, when I was chatting with a female friend who said "I can't do that, I'm a woman." It shocked me, that this person who I thought was a "kickass, take names" type person would say that.

Since that time, I've met a single mom who has had more startups than I have fingers. Who hustles the cross border hustle, that every time she posts something I'm in awe. Plus want to eat my computer screen with the food pics she posts. #hainanesechickenrice

I've also met another woman, who because of a double mastectomy, I think made one of the hardest decisions when it comes to her femininity to preserve her health. She now has a beautiful daughter, had a startup and is also hustling the hustle.

During my days in the Abercrombie administration, I worked for one of the most intelligent women, I've ever met. Saw so many women who didn't just talk about wanting change, they actually went out and made the changes they want happen, happen.

At some point, I met a young woman, who by her mid 20s had achieved more than I had dreams in my head at her age. Yet she's humble, and everytime I meet her for that random cup of coffee, I keep thinking: "omg you're not even 30 yet, this woman will be huge one day." Then realizing she already is, you don't know how insane that is.

Now I work for another strong woman, who yes when I first met scared me. Lol. Like I said, I didn't want to write a post that would go on forever, and this is just the summary of the women I find professionally inspirational.

This doesn't include the LGBT couples who taught me what fighting for what you believe in means. Or that my mentor in high school was/is a woman, that introduced me into the world of social activism. Nor my former college roommate who I think is actually Carmen Sandiego, because everytime I see her facebook/instagrams she's somewhere else in the world, doing something that can only be summarised as "whoa."

Anyway, I guess because I surround myself with strong women, I forget that gender equality is an issue. Until they post about it or I see something that reminds me, that the boys clubs are actually assholes. So on this #internationalwomen's day, I want to pay honor to all the women in my life and that I've met thru the years. bows
