October 19, 2012 - Leonard's Bakery

Since my cousin and I were still getting used to the time change, we, once again, woke up super early.  So, we decided to take a trip into Honolulu to go to Leonard's Bakery.  Leonard's is a MUST if you're ever in Honolulu.  It's a bakery that specializes in Portuguese malasadas and pao doce and they are the most delicious baked goods!

I come here every time I'm in Honolulu and I love it.  Actually, it reminds me of a funny story.  Well, it's funny now because I'm alive.  But, if you think about it, it was probably a stupid thing to do at the time.  Anyway, with that preface, I was walking, one time, to a meeting in Waikiki.  A guy was coming out of a garage and, while I was passing by, he rolled down his window and asked me if I wanted a couple of malasadas that he wasn't going to eat from Leonard's.  He didn't want them to go to waste.  At that time, I had not been to Leonard's before, but had heard about it.  So, I was super excited for the offer.  I took the malasadas and ate them.  Then, later, I thought how dumb was that.  Thank goodness the guy wasn't some kind of psycho who poisoned the malasadas.  Thankfully, the spirit of aloha is alive and well in Hawaii!  LOL!
