Shopping at Sam's Club with Gilbert our Tour Guide

  During our first arrival to Hawaii sometimes you need to replenish food in what you plan to consume during your vacation. Gilbert brought us to Sam's Club that is linked with Walmart Stores.  There are a lot of snacks that are popular in Hawaii often people purchase for own consumption or to give away for giveaways when you've arrived. Mom Violy wanted to purchase Hawaiian Chocolates for herself and her friends. Carmina wanted to try something new with her favorite cashew nut. The best part in  Sam's Club you can just pay online by downloading their application and don't need to fall in line to pay for the items you've purchased. While leaving the store someone will check your cart to check if your items has already been paid off online. Carmina's goal is tried and bring back snacks coming from Hawaii to take back to her family and friends in the Philippines. NOTE: Carmina is not selling or advertsing products sold from Sam's Club.

Nico's Pier 38

  First stop is at Nico's Pier 38 arriving from Hawaii Airport where you get to experience eating fresh fish from the sea. Menu: Carmina had a best friend who has requested to try the popular Pico that is raw tuna fish ready to eat. Without me knowing Gilbert had ordered some for Carmina to try choosing between regular or spicy to see how much they cost if you decide to try it too. Mom Violy doesn't eat raw fish, so she was able to try something else. While eating at Nico's Pier 38 you can enjoy the scenery. Carmina has no problem eating raw fish something we sometimes eat back home in the Philippines the only difference it is fresh and being made the Hawaiian way. In case you want to eat fresh fish and have a nice view come and check out  Nico's Pier 38   it is best going there in the morning where you won't reach the lunch and dinner rush.
