Fighting Eel

On Thursday, July 23 my class went to Fighting Eel, along with Lanikila Pacific, Iolani Sportswear, and La Muse.  After visiting Lanikila Pacific, we walked to China Town.  We had lunch in a shopping center.  After finishing lunch we walked to La Muse were we saw some really cool wooden robots.  My spirits were lifted as we saw a "man couch" (which is called that because men go there and sit down while there girlfriends or wives shop) in Fighting Eel.  All of the boys ran to the couch and shoved each other for room on the couch.  There were alot of things there. We especially liked the Illuminati necklace.  The manager was very kind and went out of her way to make us feel welcome and to answer our questions.  I learned that their materials are sourced from the USA, I also learned that all their clothes are sewn and packed in a two mile radius of the store.  After we finished looking around the store and asking questions, we went to the design studio.  We saw Rona Bennet there.  She told us that "No one is to big to do a job" and "Never make decisions on an empty stomach."  The design room was surprisingly casual.  After that, my class went to the sewing and storage rooms.  In the sewing room, we saw four people working on dresses.  It was really crowded with boxes, chairs, and tables.  In the storage room, there was a lot of racks and boxes.  In the middle of the room, there were three guys labeling, stacking, and counting boxes.  I asked when we could aply for a job in the storage room, they said they didn't know.  The jobs of the people in the storage room are to make sure the whole order is there.  After we left the storage room we walked back to the Fighting Eel store, on the way I saw donner kebabs, which smelled really good.  After getting into the store all the boys ran for the man couch after about ten minutes of cramp comfort on the couch, the bus came.
