PIDGINMOJI was started by Ka'ohele (on da left) and inspired by Kamalu (on da right), two brothers who grew up in Waialua (when it was still a plantation town) on da North Shore of O'ahu. Ka'ohele (Ka'o for short) wen grad Waialua High School in '94 and Kamalu (Malu for short... Kamaluonapi'olani for long) wen grad Waialua High School in '99. He also wen go Kamehameha.

Ka'o created da original PIDGINMOJI app fo' send local kine emoji talking Pidgin to Malu. Den all their friends wanted da Pidgin emoji so Ka'o released da PIDGINMOJI mobile apps on iOS and Android. Den he turned PIDGINMOJI into one lifestyle brand selling swimwear, face masks, t-shirts, slippahs, beach towels, stickahs and more with any kine Pidgin on top!

Most recently, he released da PIDGINMOJI Fortune Cookies (all da fortunes stay in Pidgin)!

Da numbah one question he gets asked is:

Yes - he is local and he probably knows that guy you stay wondering if he know from da North Shore.

Ka'o is also part Hawaiian so he stay sensitive to da island culture and believe in da importance of keeping da local business local.

T'anks eh fo' yo' support of one local boy making one business out of his love fo' Pidgin - da language dat connects all of us!

One t'ing fo' know - customer service is da numbah one priority for Ka'o. Below is some of da feedback.



Da Pidgin language originated in Hawai‘i’s 19th century communities as one way fo' connect people dat came to da islands from all around da world to work in da sugarcane plantations. What emerged was one beautiful blend of words and phrases from da Philippines, Japan, Portugal, China, Korea and more. These terms were intermixed with English and Hawaiian fo' create da Pidgin language dat enabled everyone fo' communicate with each other.

Ka'o and Malu grew up in da plantation town of Waialua on da North Shore of 'Oahu, literally surrounded by sugarcane. The Waialua Sugar Mill was the last sugarcane plantation on da island of 'Oahu to close in 1996.

Pidgin was made an official dialect of Hawai‘i in 2015 by da U.S. Census Bureau.

PIDGINMOJI connects people from all cultures by infusing Pidgin - da beloved dialect of Hawai‘i - into their products.

PIDGINMOJI was started by Ka‘ohele Carlos who was inspired by his brother, Kamalu Alameida, in 2017.  Mr. Carlos, who graduated from the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, currently works at Amazon as a Senior Design Leader for the Prime Video streaming service.  Before being recruited by Amazon, he was at CBS where he created the direct-to-consumer streaming subscription app, CBS All Access, and grew the service to over $1 billion in annual revenue.  Prior to his tenure with CBS, he was instrumental in launching the startup Fandango before it was acquired by Comcast, where he helped grow the service to 36 million monthly moviegoers.  When Steve Jobs unveiled the very first iPhone to the world on stage, he demonstrated the Fandango experience that Mr. Carlos created. This wealth of experience in the technology space has come full circle and back to the islands with the PIDGINMOJI lifestyle brand.
