Its been 1 year, 2 months, 3 weeks and 1 day since my last blog..... kinda sounds like a "meeting" yeah?
Boy has it been a helluva long time but guess what?
Wassup Wit Dat! is back baby!
As a former Honolulu Advertiser employee in the Finance department and staff blogger, I guess you could say that it was fate that originally brought me into the blogosphere world and fate to bring me back once again.
In all honesty, I feel "rusty" and really nervous about starting up again. For those who know me - or gotten to know me - know that I'm far from both but I'll try my best to keep you entertained as I've done in the past.
So what's Wassup Wit Dat! (WWD!) all about you ask?
It's anything and EVERYTHING from an old school local boy point of view. It's about life and episodes inside and out of Hawai'i. There will be stories (mo'olelo's) that shock, inspire or reach out to you while we share our thoughts/opinions (mana'o) - good and/or bad. I get ripped sometimes but it's au' good as long as it's said nicely cause trust and believe, I bite back. I'm loud, straight-forward and shoot from the hip (which gets me into trouble sometimes) keeping it as real as I can but no one can question my love for da 808.
But it's that same Aloha that I passionately have that I blog about moments that make you say....
Wassup Wit Dat!
WWD! is unique in the sense that the blog's "voice" is mainly in Pidgin and while the mo'olelo may have a mixture of grammer, my responses are usually in my native tongue cause that's how I talk fo' real. For those who are not used to Pidgin may find it hard to understand at times but you'll be able to piece it together... hopefully.
You'll learn pretty quickly that I observe things most people don't and experience more than a fair share of "hard-luck" incidents that I'm more than happy to share so that you may smile, laugh or tease at my expense. I only ask that you post a comment or at the very least, return to read again and leave with a grin, smirk or chuckle.
There were a bunch of things I wanted to do on the blog when it was at The Honolulu Advertiser but I never got a chance to. Now with a fresh start, stay tuned for a whole bunch of new segments to be added on cause for those who read regularly, you know that WWD! is not your ordinary blog but has au' kine stuff. No worries, still going get Pidgin Word of Da Day (PWODD), Shout Outs, Feel Good Fridays, Shakanack Reviews and I sincerely hope WWD! will be a regular read for you.
So E Komo Mai back all you Kwonics, Lanceformers and Lurkahs (stay tuned to find out wat da heck those are) cause it only gets pupule from here!
SHOUT OUT: Mahalos to CW for allowing me to blog at The Honolulu Star-Advertiser!
