Da Kine, originally uploaded by Andy Beal Photography.

I’ve just uploaded this photo, but I don’t remember the name of the hotel. My wife would, she’s the Hawaii expert, but she’s not around to ask.

So, instead, I’ll use it as a chance to teach you a Hawaiian pidgin expression: da kine.

It’s the equivalent of "thingy" or "whatchamacallit." Use it when you want to refer to something that you can quite remember the name of. 😉
