  • Culture?

    I live in hawaii, and contrary towhat most people think, It looks nothing like the post cards!Also "hawaiian" culture now really isn't hawaiian its a mix. For example people in hawaii don't really speak hawaiian, unless its just a few words like "Mahalo" which meas thank you "aloha" which means, hi, goodbye, love a lot of things. Then theirs pidgin. Its a "slang" i guess. In pidgin ( which everybody in hawaii usually speaks) u hear Things like "Bra" which means friend i guess but you have to allready be talking to the person when you say it.

    Here is one of my favorite pidgin phrases' "eh bra, u dakine?". Now i know alot of people are probably like what th heck? But let me explain the word Dakine. Dakine could mean pretty mucha any thing. for example if i think your stupid, i could say."eh u dakine" and it will be the same as if i called you smart, sexy or anything else. Oh and its pronounced (DA kind without the d).

    Another one of my favorite phrases is "Rah jah dat". This meas I got it.

    Anybody else want to post some of their cultures, "things" or find out more about "pidgin"?

                              well actually it looks to me that people just can't spell 'roger that' properly
