Meiko updated fans on her blog at MySpace (@meiko) on Sunday (January 25), enjoying a second visit to Hawaii in consecutive months before gearing up to tour with Joshua Radin. The singer songwriter tells readers:
I must confess… I’m in Hawaii again! I loved it much last month when I was here, that I used my sky miles to come back again… and this time, I brought my sister, the super awesome Kelly Nishimoto.
She works way too much so I told her, “We’re gonna sit our asses on the beach and not do jack sh**balls for a week” and… here we are…
I’m getting ready to go on tour with Joshua Radin so – this is a good way to spend some family time before I tour all year (hopefully).

Thank You Hustler for including me in this months issue.
I just went to buy a few copies…. and my friend told the guy at the counter, “She’s in here!” …I almost died.

Meiko updated fans on her blog at MySpace (@meiko) on Wednesday (January 14), talking about how she recovered from a flu bug and opening for Katy Perry at her Hotel Cafe show on Monday night despite the illness. The singer songwriter tells readers:
I picked up some nasty flu bug while I was in Europe, and it kicked my arse for a little bit… I have to start remembering to travel with all my vitamins and the weird hippie shizzle I like to take when I’m under the weather… Lesson learned.
I got back home… went to Trader Joe’s, made a smoothie, took my Colloidal Silver throat spray and my Ultra Zinc Lozenges and now I’m cool as a mule in school.
The bummer/ awesomeness that happened… was… the day I got back… I got asked to open up for Katy Perry at The Hotel Cafe… I was like, “Uhhh-should I do it??? I feel like balls!?” But… I did it… I had to… Not only because it was an already sold-out show… but, because Katy is my friend and she asked me to.
Did y’all know she started off at the Hotel Cafe? I used to serve beers while she would be on stage, by herself with her acoustic guitar… Haha! Those were the days….
Anyway… She ended up having the flu too. Here is a pic of us smiling… but totally sick.
Meiko checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@meiko) on Sunday (January 4) from the latest stop on her European vacation. The singer songwriter tells readers:
I’m in Florence, Italy! This place is re-donkey-lips….
I love it here! I scored a pimp-ass hotel room for $53 on Kayak.com… and it ended up being one of the nicest hotels I’ve seen lately… Go Hilton!)
Of course – I woke up early for the free breakfast… and it was this huge buffet with all these Italian meats and cheeses and super dark coffee and fresh squeezed orange juice and fresh croissants! Holy lord…
Its really cool – that u can just drive everywhere in Europe and see all these different cultures and hear all these different languages and taste all the different fooooooods! MMMMmmmmmmm….
Meiko updated fans on her blog at MySpace (@meiko) on Thursday (January 1) while in Spain. The singer songwriter tells readers:
I’m in Figueras, SPAIN right now… staying at a cute little hotel in the middle of the city… I specifically woke up for the free breakfast and went downstairs to inquire about it… and the dude down there was like uh… its 7 am… and breakfast starts at 8… My fricken clock was 2 hrs early!!! AHHHH!) I seriously just woke up at 5:30 am… What the hell??? I rarely have the problem of waking up too early…
Today I’m gonna visit Salvador Dali’s museum, since this is where he’s from… I can’t wait! It’s gonna be bad-arse… This little town is so proud of him… There is Dali stuff everywhere… the Xmas lights are big ants crawling up all the trees!) How fricken cute!)
After the museum – I’m heading to a place in France called Nice… I’ve never been to France before – but Nice sounds like a good place to start…

So – Sorry I haven’t written so much lately.. I’ve been traveling my ass off and having the best time… Hawaii was amazing!

Special thanks to Phil, Matty, Aubry, 101.9, and Pipeline for having me and giving me an amazing vacation!!!
I left Honolulu and went to Macon, Ga. for my 2nd annual Xmas show…. I got to see sooo many people from back in the day… Even some elementary school teachers showed up, which was awesome!! I got to share the stage with 2 acts that I love and personally picked to do the show with… Sonia Leigh and Red Fish Blu Fish… It was the sh**.
Meiko updated fans on her blog at MySpace (@meiko) on Thursday (December 18), spending time in a warm place ahead of Christmas. The singer songwriter tells readers:
I’m officially in Honolulu… It’s beautiful… (Well – what I’ve seen so far!) I got here kinda late yesterday… So – I just woke up and I’m about to go explore… I figured I walk down to the beach and walk forever…
From what I’ve experienced, here in Waikiki, everyone’s soooo nice and helpful and smiley…
The guy who picked me up from the airport, told me all the best sushi and BBQ spots… It is on!
Last night I went to Sansei for sushi… The chefs there were sooo cool! And can you believe they actually heard my songs… I was like… uhhhh… Are you sure!? haha!
Meiko updated fans on her blog at MySpace (@meiko) on Tuesday (December 16), pitching her sister’s Cute Booty Christmas themed lounge pants, which are available at a discount. Meiko even models the item. The singer songwriter tells readers:
For those of u that don’t know… My sister, Kelly Nishimoto, is a clothing designer… We moved out to LA together (with only 2 fist fights) and we’ve been here ever since…
She is my BFF and our dad couldn’t be prouder of us… and happy that we have each other to lean on in this nutty ass city.
Anyways – My sister invented these pants called “Cute Booty’s”… They are loungy pants that have these scrunched up pockets that make your booty look good… Small asses and big asses.. all look good in these things…
I had an idea to make Christmas ones cause I love them so much – and my sister actually went for it… We only have a few left, but I thought I would tell you about them if you wanna get some for presents or… for yourself… I even made her put jingle bells on the ties!
I’m giving them to all the ladies in my family… so I’ll put up some X-mas pics of the whole family in Christmas Booty…Dirty Georgia Style…
She normally sells her pants for $120… but because I love you…they will only be $50 for my friends…
Once you put them in your shopping cart… use coupon code MEIKO and it will discount your order $70…
She can also ship them anywhere in the US for the holidays…
