About Peter Kay

I’ve lived Hawaii since the mid ‘80s when I moved here at the age of 21. I arrived site-unseen in Honolulu with zero contacts and about $5k in savings. I worked from nearly zero and today Hawaii has given me the greatest gifts in the world in all aspects: spiritually, financially, romantically (married since early ‘90s w/ 2 children), and most important, peace. My goal with this site is to share the magic of this Land of Aloha and help others who are on a similar quest.

Make your first meal in Hawaii a plate lunch

I remember discovering plate lunches after I first moved here in the 80s and immediately started gaining weight after partaking.  These plate lunches seemed to be designed for big construction workers that needed thousands of calories to do their job, not a computer deskworker like me.  But regardless, if you really want a true taste

What makes Hawaii’s people so awesome

If you had to boil down what really makes Hawaii so amazing, it has to be its people.  Sure the weather is great but there are (arguably) other places with great weather too.  But our people and our values is what really stands out. Our local girl Aina wrote up a piece on what makes
