Fun at Ala Moana Center

David and I spent a few hours at Ala Moana Center in Honolulu today, strolling through the Ewa Wing, which was recently built.

This is a new ice cream store, called Nitrogenie.  The ice cream is made with liquid nitrogen, which freezes the ice cream quickly, making it creamier than other ice creams.  I ordered a delicious caramel sundae:

Bloomingdale’s is a new addition to Ala Moana Center:

    Very posh. It looks like a fun place to spend window shopping time.

    And they say nobody goes to the mall anymore. It sounds like fun. We’ve scheduled our trip to the big mall for next Friday. It’ll get us into the holiday spirit.

    The popovers with strawberry jam are very Upper West Side. And Bloomingdales! That’s amazing. You could be in Manhattan, except that in Manhattan most everyone would be rail thin and dressed in black!

    Oh, Bloomingdales and Neiman Marcus. I am so jealous. We have nothing like this in Fresno. Nothing!

    A lovely shopping mall Gigi. I haven’t been in a Neiman and Marcus for years.

    Going to a shopping mall not to buy anythingbis the best type of outing because you have more freedom and no pressure.
