Weekend Getaway at the Hilton Waikoloa: HUJI Cam Edition

A few weekends back, my family and I spontaneously booked a stay at the Hilton Waikoloa. We went for the first ever Ube Festival that was held in the hotel’s ballroom. If you’re wondering about this, maybe I’ll do a separate post? Anyways, I had just downloaded the film camera app, “HUJI Cam,” and decided I’d have some fun with it while wandering around for the weekend. I don’t have a film camera (yet..?), but this is really making me itch for one!

Please enjoy some of my favorite captures:

Right after I settled into bed for the night!
I hid beneath the building, admiring the Hilton lagoon from afar
We ventured out into town for some gifts and some snacks!
Loved the way the street looked from inside~

May I introduce you to the newest cafe to my list of loves: Da Kine Coffee. Run by a sweet family just on the side of the road, Da Kine Coffee serves up a number of drinks and some refreshing açai bowls! I want the Papaya Bowl simply because it looks stunning! I settled for two drinks here instead.. Oops! Want something a bit salty? They have that too! Try a sandwich, or even better– a panini?

I was so in love with my Li Hing Mui POG Drink.. I completely forgot to get a shot of it!

I ended up getting the Brown Cow.. And later added on an order of the Li Hing Mui POG drink~ Here’s a tip: Ask them to add some ice cream to it and blend it up! You won’t regret it. Trust me.

You can’t see them, but there are a few more groups of people on either sides of me. I’m a trendsetter, I guess?

Unfortunately, we only got to enjoy one sunset during our stay. However, I made sure to soak up every single ounce of it. I sat on the grass in a big open area, and before I knew it, others walking by followed my lead. This adorable couple next to me was in awe of the view the entire time. I don’t blame them! I couldn’t help but to snap a picture of them before walking away. I love seeing people enjoy such simple things in life.

Like I said, the trip was short and we didn’t have too much time to chill. That said, I did the best I could. I watched the dolphins, I walked along the pool, I laid in my bed.. And I even swung on this hammock for a bit! I remember being 5 years old and absolutely LOVING the hammocks here. And honestly..? Nothing’s changed. Can’t wait to make my way back here, hopefully sooner rather than later. Thanks, Hilton!

xo, Kris
