Well this is interesting....let me give it a try. XD


FILIPINO:

WHITE
PURRAW (pu-rao) - Usually a term used to refer to Caucasian people. XD

(This is all I know for sure right now, maybe KaoKao and Zymes will add in but I may add in more later. XD)

HAWAIIAN:

(There is a song I learned a long while back in elementary school all about Hawaiian colors but I've since forgotten that now... >>; )

Red
Ula Ula

Pink
Akala

Orange
Alani

Yellow
Melemele

Purple
Poni

Blue
Polu

Green
Oma'oma'o

Gray
Hinahina

Brown
Maku'e

White
'Kea

Black
'Ele'Ele

(The ' refers to an accentuated "break" in the word. So...Brown = Maku'e, so mahku.-eh )

Since English became my 2nd language, Tagalog has been demoted to my 3rd. Since I rarely use it only to speak tagalog-speaking Filipinos. And I had to ask my dad, who's home language is tagalog, which is weird because we (rest of the family) speak to him in our home language, Bisaya (a dialect, which is my first tongue >.>).

Edit : After posting this, I heard Kooh in my mind asking me the filipino word for Rainbow ... @_@
