Overview

"What, Where, and How Much" were the key concerns of the author's life for the seventeen exciting years that he lived in the Far East. This epic journey started with him working for our Uncle Sam, sailing Chinese junks in the South China Sea. After leaving Uncle Sam, he started "smuggling" heavy boxes and people; money was hand-over-fist and a small fortune was banked.

Honk Kong nightlife, with "Long Dress Dancers" and "Sing Sing Girls" was the tease of plenty of men, and every seaport town had its own specialty, offering "Silk and Lace" to the big spenders. You'll be able to read and feel the night breeze of Singapore and see the steam coming off the food carts of Buogy Street, as people watch the "Playgirls on Parade."

Returning to Hawaii, where he had grown up in poverty on a sugarcane plantation, the author became a successful real estate developer, developing many projects, several of which changed the skyline of Honolulu. Romances along the way led to heartaches, the pain of which led him to his next pursuit: poetry...the Sun "Peeking" stole the night..."My Little Hummingbird" sat on air...and happiness was a new pair of shoes and a "Love Mate" I didn't want to lose.
