Hawaii Veteran’s Day Celebration 2011

Once again Veteran’s Day is upon us and at our Waikiki Tattoo Shop, 434 Tattoo, and we are offering 25% off a tattoo to all military personnel.  That’s one huge tattoo discount in Hawaii. We have this promotion going all month long in honor of those who protect and service our nation and protect out ohana!

Speaking of crazy promotions, we are also offering 50% off to Federal, foreign, agents and head honchos here on the island for APEC 2011.  We just want to say thanks for choosing our home to help plan the future.  What better way to get the gears turning than coming on out for a custom tattoo?  Come one down Mr. President, maybe we can give you an idea or two for stimulating the economy like opening a tattoo shop.  Manny Pacquiao is doing it and he’s a boxer turned politician.

With APEC going down, Waikiki is kind of on lockdown.  It’s a good thing 434 Tattoo is conveniently located off the strip, accessible from every direction, and can be reached on foot.  We are right down the street from the famous Wailana Coffee Shop and close to the Military Hale Koa Hotel.

So check us out seven days a week, rain or shine (we’d be open if there was snow too).  We’re home to the free consultation and the tattoo train, chugga chugga… Chee huu!  We specialize in custom tattooing and are skilled in a variety of styles including Hawaiian and Polynesian Tattoos, Asian Tattoo Designs, Americana, and more.

The Long Road to Samar

Road to Samar

Airport

Once Landing in Tacloban , the smell of debris gets stronger, The Taxi drivers bombard you , all wanting to be your guide . (TIP, wear head phones and ignore them ..works great !)

As the people stare at you while walking down the stairs of the airplane onto the run way , guarded by airport security , you enter a room where you can pick up your luggage . (similar to landing in Hana , Maui ) but much more populated than Maui ..Keep the Country ,Country !

Into a Caravan and into town, where reading the news of the most recent Political Murder in town , the Mayor executed in the way of power .

Tacloban

After being harassed by the Hotel Counter person who wanted to charge us extra , we check in to our room , that looked more like a jail cell.  Note , the Hotel has better rooms , but this time we stayed in a much smaller room .The holding cell room .

This is the last stop to pick up what ever you are going to need , the rest of the way will have no stores, hotels , gas stations or pit stops .

Stocking up on 2 weeks worth of food and water , and shopping for any of those hard to beat deals , we hire a driver , Arnold who always drives us , to take the crew to the jungle .

Road to Samar

The trip should take about a hour or two  , depending on traffic . Its not long before your into deep jungle , and then over the San Juanico bridge , Guarded with the biggest guns of them all . M16s and Army Soldiers  heavily arm this San Francisco looking bridge in the middle Samar  .

After crossing the bridge more jungle and smell of smoke in the air .Then finally after over a hour we make a left , at first a smooth road then no more concrete , bumpy off road action  for about 30 minutes . Check out the video footage for yourself .

When we get to the village , after the hard rain , you hear cheering , walk out the front door and about 30 yards away is a chicken fighting ring and all the guys holding there chickens waiting to enter inside .

It is a Rain Forest with smoke always in the air . From the village to go any further down the road , you must ride a taxi bike , 4-5 people and children  on a bike is very normal , check the pictures .

Taking the off road motor bike to the end of the road you will find the Mayors town , a major school and small police station and a small post office , a few small basic food stores , very small only the bare essentials for survival  . The first gas station is being built on the road to town .The Mayor owns a nice little cozy bar and restaurant on the Ocean Waterfront on a walking pier . Offering Karaoke as well .

The Culture

The people here are very hard working Farmers and Fisherman , as tried to capture in many photographs , a festival is held every year to celebrate to hard work of there Community . Each Village has a captain with a few people under him in charge of maintaining peace with in . You will not find a police officer around unless you go to the Mayors town .

Things to Remember
Chicken Fighting is a very important part of  Culture ,with drinking and singing Karaoke . The smell of fire burning is thick and can be found in any part of the Philippines . Riding in the boats to get to other islands is a great memory . The Tobacco Leafs grown here are as strong as  Cuba’s , from the mountains and grown 100% organic with out needing any additives .

Being farmers of Rice , they have some of the best tasting Rice ever had a chance to eat . Not being a rice lover , it is a guarantee , and you would admit , this locally grown rice is the best flavor ever tried .. And they have many excellent strains , from brown, black and red rice all so good .
