First of all, allow me to greet you a warm Aloha and Mahalo ... two of the most widely used words of the Hawaiian language. You hear these words everyday and almost everywhere in Hawaii. All residents of our beautiful islands - the young and the old, the rich or the poor, Hawaiian or not ... they all know these two words by heart.
Aloha means many different things. It can be used to say hello, goodbye, welcome, love, good wishes, and also to express compassion and caring affection. It is a word which easily rolls off one's tongue like the soft breezes and gentle waves that come to the shores of our beautiful islands. Mahalo simply means thank you. Just as in any other language, it is used to express gratitude or appreciation ... as for a gift, a favor, and the kindness or generosity of others.
Kumusta po kayo? Buti naman at nagkaroon din kayo nang pagkakataon na dumalaw (How are you? It is good that you found the time to visit). My name is Juny P. La Putt and among my friends in cyberspace they also know me as "The Hawaiian WebMaster." Listed below are some of the Websites which I designed and constructed. Working on Websites started as a hobby for me way back in 1996 and somehow up to this time I continue to enjoy it. I would like to invite you now to come and visit these Websites and I hope you will enjoy whatever you decide to see.
