Aloha mai e Hila,
I know that you are curious, but I will not change my facebook picture. Instead I will post another photo in my album in the next days where you can find me, although I am already there in the group picture.
E Hila, It was just a casual conversation on the bus when you were going back from Lihu`e to Ketaha maybe a year ago and you told me about yourself and that you came from Ni`ihau. I just happen to have very good memory and I never knew anybody by the name Hila. When I was browsing among the pictures on Maoliworld I found your name and picture and recognized you. Just thought I would send you a hello message. Most people don't remember faces after such a long time, but I do. Live well Hila!
No, Hila. You don't know me. It was just a casual conversation on the bus. I just happened to remember your name and mentioned it to my kanaka maoli friends and those from Ni`ihau knew you. I am much older than you.
Never mind my comment. He mai‘a ua pa‘a i ke ko‘o.
E Hila, aloha no,
It is strange that we meet here. We met once in life on Kaua`i on The Bus. I am the haole-looking kanaka ē. Auntie Ku`upualeinani Ni`ihau told me about you.
Come to Salt Pond when you can. Meet me at the papa kaukau kanaka.
