For the tourists who like to come to Hawaii..and wanna blend in, three things you can instantly do to be more "local"
1) Aknowledge people around you with a smile and say HI AUNTIE or HI UNCLE....to older people..they will instantly think you are realated or know them somehow.
2) Order a Strawberry Slushie from Byron's Drive Inn or any food place where there are slushies and ALWAYS have them put vanilla ice cream in it.
3) NEVER EVER call Slippers FLIP FLOPS that is an INSTANT give away..that SCREAMS TOURIST or MILITARY ALWAYS ALWAYS call them SLIPPERS...in fact drop the "ER" sound and just say Slippah ( SLIHPAH)
there you are instantly kamaaina...
