    1/8 I Guess

    My dad is Chinese and 1/4 hawaiian. So I guess that makes me 1/8! I have the family tree on our side(and my mom's side as well). There are last names a mile long on there! I lived with my dad on Oahu for four years. I was a great sinner and saint there.

    Its Hard Being Hapa

    Being of mixed race is never dull, it's even less dull when your also part hawaiian. Take for example when  you try to tell everyone your name. My name is very unique, I have only met one other person with my name. Its a phase of the moon in hawaiian. And sometimes I think...

    I am almost a quarter Hawaiian.  :D  I am definitely proud of my heritage because it's like no other, literally.  A lot of times, when I go to the mainland, people think I'm like, Mexican, or some kind of "exotic" nationality.  Haha, it's actually...

    Love And Honesty

    I am listening to my favorite song from Hawaii. I will always call Hawaii home since I am from there. Love And Honesty by Hawaiian Style Band is in English and Hawaiian. I have loved it since I was a teenager. I don't know if it is because it is a bilingual song, but the genre...

    Hapa And Proud

    I draw a few different ethnicities, but I believe my diversity is what makes me the unique individual that I am today.  I must admit though I relate more with my Polynesian inheritance.

    I'm about 1/4 Hawaiian, but my skin is super dark. Everyone always asks me if I'm Mexican. Espically because my dad looks it lol. And supposedly, we're great descendants of one of the last kings of Hawaii.

    I was recently asked what is my favorite scenic

    spot in my hometown and why. I love Mount Tantalus on Oahu, Hawaii. It is so beautiful, so peaceful. I can see a lot of Oahu from up there. I wish the whole world was that peaceful.

    I like how friendly people in my native

    hometown Hawaii are. Unless the laws have changed there recently, there are no laws against adults being with sixteen year olds. Unfortunately up here on the mainland pedos make it so people are wary of people being friends with their kids, even if it is just friends. I am...
