Aloha 'Oe..... For Realz
It is with great sadness dat dis will be da final blog of Wassup Wit Dat!. I've just been notified tonight dat da blogs on Honolulu Star-Advertiser has been discontinued with no indication of a return and while da blogs are only in 'digital' print, it wasn't able to survive da current changes at HSA. WWD! will still be around in archive form but das just about it.
Personally I'm even surprised dat WWD! has 'survived' almost a decade - yeah, almost a DECADE!
Wassup Wit Dat!
How does a career accounting grunt dat deals with numbahs all day able to dabble in an industry filled with... words? Having a bunch of pupule readers, das how! lol Maybe cause Pidgin (albeit da "readable" Pidgin kine) is a common denominator dat we don't want to see disappear in a forevah changing Hawai'i society? Maybe cause you enjoy reading about da 'observation skills' of a soft spoken Korean 😆 wondering how da heck can one person have so many 'fun' WWD! moments.
'Words' can't express my gratitude to The Honolulu Star-Advertiser for da continued opportunity in keeping WWD! alive for as long as it could but da true Mahalos goes out to Da WWD! Hui because without you, WWD! would have vanished before you finished saying "pupu platter". It was a joy to have read every single comment - good and bad - exchanging banter and carrying "conversations" - meeting some of you in real life wasn't scary either. 😀
With a fondest Aloha, Mahalo nui loa for all your time and support. I have been personally blessed with dis tremendous ride and I loved every bit of it - I certainly hope you have too.
