Yo!

Saying Goodbye to a Hawaiian, 1st Lt. Nainoa Hoe, who served in Iraq

* In this article these two images show the effect of war on a Hawaiian who served in Iraq. In this article, he is described as a warrior. However, that's already understood or obvious to many Hawaiians considering that most if not all Hawaiians are related to a chief or cheifs in some way. For those who are interested in Hawaiian history, every Hawaiian is related to a chief so technically they are of royal lineage. More importantly, many Hawaiians are warriors and in some cases... Kamehameha Warriors. (Hoe graduated from Kamehameha Schools as in "Kamehameha Warriors.") Anyway interesting pictures and article:

Kung Hee Fat Choy to other Chinese out there especially if you're Cantonese (like me LOL)



Tomorrow is the start of Chinese New Year aka Lunar New Year. So much luck to other Chinese (and non-Chinese people) out there!

Kung Hee Fat Choy!

That's how we Chinese in Hawai'i spell it in English because most of the Chinese in Hawai'i immigrated from Canton thus the Cantonese dialect *LOL*

Anyway much luck to everyone this year! By the way it's about 4703! LOL
