Howzit Everyone, My name is Kainani Lehua. I am 1/4 French 1/4 Spanish 1/4 Hawaiian and 1/4 Portugeese. I am from Ewa Beach originally and have been in California for a long time now. I go back home as often as I can, like every year or every other year or when I can afford to go back. I was back home about 2 years ago cause my Hawaiian Tutu wen pass away and I went for her funeral. I miss her alot. She brang me up in Ewa. My parents gave me to my Tutu when I was only about 3 months old cause they couldn't afford to keep me. They both moved to the mainland when I was about 2 years old, then I moved with them when I was about 17. It was a trip because everything here was so different than Hawaii. The pace here was alot faster and stuff. I've been here ever since but have gone home every year after that to see my ohana. I love my home here too but, I find my heart longing to go back home again sometimes. I have three children and I want them to know Hawaii to. I have taken them to hawaii a few times but, I't not the same as them living there. I dream of taking them back one day to live but I not rich so, I no think I can afford to live in Hawaii. I need to win da Lottery,LOL. So until then I jus like talk story with you folks :) so I no feel so home sick for the Islands. I play my ukulele alot cause it's not only soothing to me but, It takes my heart back home. So any ways Does anyone have any good stuffs to talk story about, if so give me one Reply back. Mahalo's
Aloha, Kainani Lehua

Hui Kainani:
You one expatriate like me! Come insai here and get good fun wit da "electronic" ohana. Sometimes get beefs, most time get plenty dakine lolo stuff going on too, though, just like one real ohana.

Dis one good place to catch up on what's going on in da 'aina. Get plenty pilikia right now in da 'aina, but I'm sure somebody going say, "yeah, but everyplace get pilikia!" :)

For reals about plenty locals who wen move away from the 'aina really want to go back and help make things pono, but too expensive. So the best thing is to go visit the ohana as often as you can and then hang out in here.

Garans you going have a good time.

A hui hou,

How you say "Oregon" in Hawaiian? Washington is "Wakinikona".I'd guess... "Olekona"?

I'd guess... "Olekona"?
Mahalos. I wonder what the kanaka maoli did with the word "Massachusetts" when the first missionaries landed on Hawaii's shores? :eek:

"Makakukeke". :D
Amazing how they were able to create approximations of "English" words, with the limited number of vowels and consonants in the Hawaiian language!

Amazing how they were able to create approximations of "English" words, with the limited number of vowels and consonants in the Hawaiian language! :confused: Why wouldn't they be able to? It's always possible to transliterate words of any language into any other language. Whether the result sounds anything like the original is another story...

Howzit everybody,
It is sunday evening here in Kaliponi and I am board to death. I wish I was down Swanzy Beach Park futting around in da watah. You buggahs are lucky that still live in da Islands cause you get to enjoy dawarm watah dea. Ova hea da watah is so.....cold you no like even go inside cause you get da kine hypothermia. It is so rediculous. I miss being back home. I miss camping down da beach, I miss everything about Hawaii. They get Hawaiian restraunts hea but not like da kine back home. I stay in San Jose, Ca. Sometimes it's happening hea if you make BBQ and Party with all da local people but, adda dan dat it's boaring. At least back home wen we part..eh we party, yeh. Ova hea is alot of snobby kine people. Some are nice but, they're hard to find. I like jus Kanikapila and have a good time. I mean I take care business wit my Ohana first but , there comes a time I like have fun too afta da long day, yeh. What you folks do fo fun ova dea? Probably betah dan hea. At least you can go beach and enjoy da ocean (Kai) and stuff. Ova hea da Kai stay junk. It's not nice like ova dea.
Aloha, Nani :D

:) Hello & Aloha Everyone, Howzit?
How is everyone doing? I am fine. Does anyone out there watch the dog? Dog the bounty Hunter? I love that show. Someone needs to catch all da iceheads and stuff. We need more like him and his crew. I stay tired of all da kine druggy Peoples. We can all do without drugs and people on drugs. It's ashame,yeh!! God Bless all the People that are on drugs and their ohana's. This world is better off without all the drugs and stuffs. It's the Devil just trying for ruin lives. May God over throw him and all his evil ways. Amen!!! Aloha, Nani ;)

I was stationed at Barbers Point in the 80's. When was home I liked going to Mama's for cold beer and good mexican food. I always got a nacho platter with sourcream, salsa, and guacamole. Hard to eat it all. The bar had a baseball game on the wall. It costs a quarter to play. It was called Batter Up.
Other times I enjoyed going to Buddy's Bar. They had a fish in an aquarium that was so big that every 2 or 3 days they would pick up the fish and turn him around so that he wouldn't get too bored.
I really enjoyed the Pearl City Tavern. they had on display the largest lobster ever caught. It was BIG!
Probably my all-time favorite place to eat was The Sloop John Beam in Ewa Beach. World's greatest cheeseburgers and mugs of beer so cold they came with a thin cake of ice floating on top. That was the best! As close to heaven as a person can be here on earth. 25 years later and I still tell people about it. Some of my best memories ever. Thank you for that part of my life.

Welcome to HT, Bob:
Have you ever thought about going back and revisiting some of those places you used to haunt? I bet you will be surprised at many of the changes that have happened in Hawai'i since the 1980's. Honolulu especially is all grown up now, with all the pluses and minuses that being a big-league town bring with it.
