Soak uncooked rice in water to cover for 4 hours. Drain and rinse.
In a medium saucepan, bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Add the soaked rice and stir. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes until the rice is cooked.
Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in rice vinegar. Set the rice aside to cool.
In a medium bowl, stir together sugar, soy sauce, and oyster sauce until the sugar is completely dissolved. Slice the luncheon meat lengthwise into 10 slices and marinate them in the sauce for 5 minutes.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the marinated luncheon meat slices until lightly browned, about 2 minutes per side.
Cut the nori sheets in half and lay them on a flat work surface. Place a rice press in the center of each sheet and press the cooked rice tightly inside. Top with a slice of the cooked luncheon meat, then remove the rice press.
Wrap the nori around the rice and meat, sealing the edges with a small amount of water. Alternatively, you can shape the rice by hand into the shape of the meat slices, about 1-inch thick.
Serve the musubi warm or chilled for a delightful taste of Hawaii.
