There's no need to wait for those random star sightings that brighten your day. Let them come to you as you're lazing in sunny Kailua, just mindin' your own business, sippin' on a smoothie at Lanikai Juice.
The cozy, casual juice bar was a hit with the "Lost" crowd well before the show became a hit. But "Lost" 's success doesn't mean its stars are hiding out. They are among us, haunting Hoku's, Jameson's by the Sea, Boots & Kimo's, and even Sports Authority. (Gotta work off that food somehow!)
Actors Dominic Monaghan, Evangeline Lilly and Matthew Fox continue to be regulars at Lanikai Juice, which may be on every tourist's "must see" list thanks to Fox's plug on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" last Wednesday, when he got behind the counter to whip up a smoothie. Now there's one counter dude you don't need to tip.

I admit, I'm one of many men smitten by the physical beauty of the Ahn sisters, but of more value is how the Ahn Trio continues to try to push the envelope of contemporary classical music to reach a wider audience. See Page 5 for more.

It's time to get ready for the Hawaii International Film Festival. Tickets are already on sale for the 200 films and there's something for everyone at this festival. I already have tickets to some of the foreign movies but I know there are more that I want to see. For those who only enjoy mainstream type of movies, "Prime" with Uma Thurman and Meryl Streep will be shown at the festival and so will "Brokeback Mountain" with Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal. See Page 3 on how to get tickets.
