Barack Obama jetted off to Hawaii this weekend for a much-needed holiday break and kicked off his two-week vacation by teeing off on the Olomana Golf Links in Waimanalo.
With less than a month to go before his historical and much-hyped inauguration, Obama seemed in good spirits as he played 18 holes of golf with political aide Eugene Kang and some friends.
Dressed in a white polo shirt, tan cargo shorts and some cool shades, Obama made a food run midway through the course, stopping at a snack bar to purchase the following: two passion-orange sodas, one Powerade, and one Coke, two hot dogs, two Spam musubi (a sushi-like Hawaiian delicacy consisting of Spam and fried egg on a slab of rice held together with a dried seaweed wrap) -all totaling $17.75.
The President-elect even offered to pick up the beer tab for the reporters, suggesting they take a break from photographing him by visiting the clubhouse, CNN reports.
