Random conversation heard going up the Koko Head trail on the weekend…
Mainlanders’ vocab guide:
Hapa = half haole, half Asian or Polynesian. The term “half” can be used loosely
Haole = Caucasian
A group of college students:
Filipino Male: What do you call a Filipino who has 10 black dogs?
Hapa local female: Full?
Filipino Male: He’s GOT the dogs.
Hapa female: I don’t know.
Filipino male: Vegetarian.
Hapa female: Oh, that’s bad.
Haole female: I don’t get it.
Filipino Male: The dogs are alive, so he didn’t eat them.
Haole female: I still don’t get it.

Poi dog = mixed breed mutt
Okole = ass /butt
Trow blows = fist fight
