This is the start to a series I will be writing. A post will be coming soon with more background information about my blog.
Nonstophonolulu.com launched today with Livefyre as their comment system. As I browsed through the posts I saw a picture of some Saimin noodles from a place on Maui. This immediately reminded me of a similar dish I ate at a small shop in Kauai. I commented on the post to share my memory and went back to work.
A few minutes later I got an e-mail notifying me that the author, Cat, replied to my comment: “@jennalanger Are you talking about Hamura’s? I haven’t been there in years. Actually, maybe that’s my next food adventure… After a diet!”
I did a quick Google Image search for “Hamura’s” and she was right! I would have never remembered the name of the place. But one quick interaction with a local and the memory was back, this time with full color and even details of the creme pie we indulged in.
Thank you Internet for making the world a smaller place and helping me remember the minor details that make life so lovely.
What memories have you “re-remembered” because of the Internet?
