Oahu trip day 5

More spam, eggs and rice for breakfast.

Sunday morning we headed to Waikiki and returned our mopeds. Then we hit the swap meet.

After the swap meet we headed to North Shore for some garlic shrimp.

Robyn's cousin told us about Puffies at Paalaa Kai Bakery. Which is located near the shrimp trucks. So we stopped by to get some on our way to Giovanni's Shrimp Truck.

Puffies are a flaky pastry filled with custard and topped with chocolate and powdered sugar. I dislike custard and there was a lot of it crammed in the Puffies. I ate mostly around it, but if you like custard they're pretty amazing. Everyone else like it, I liked everything about it except for the custard.

This was the line for Giovanni's Shrimp Truck. There are a few other trucks located nearby selling other types of food.

Had the plantation tea. It was okay.

Slowly getting closer.

It took us about 30 minutes just to be able to place our order and about another 30 minutes before we finally got out food. We were starving by the time we got the food.

Still buttery and garlicky goodness.

Also got the garlic hotlink, which was disappointing. Couldn't really taste the sauce that much.

After we headed to Dole Pineapple Plantation, since it was Diane's and Tammy's first visit to Hawaii.

Dole whip.

Diane doesn't even like pineapple, but she still wanted to try it... the face of regret.

If you ever wondered how pineapples are grown.

Rainbow eucalyptus

After our short visit to the plantation, John and Robyn stayed at North Shore to visit Robyn's cousin. The rest of us headed back to the house.

We had to fend for ourselves for dinner, so we ate a bunch of left overs.

and Jack made fried rice with all of the left over pork, chicken, and short rib from Side Street Inn.

Pretty much drank and hung out at the house the remainder of the night.

We had so much left overs in the fridge. I wanted dessert and rummaged through the fridge to find out that I bought a strawberry shortcake the other day.

That ends night 5. It's starting to set in that this vacation is going to end soon.
