Evangeline Lily And Dominic Monaghan have seemingly adjusted to life in Hawaii quite well. One thing that has been a tad hard to adjust to is the Hawaiian language and slang.
The British actor was recently taken aback in a restaurant, when he feared he had horribly misunderstood the wait staff.
He explains, “There are a couple (of slang terms) that don’t work for me. One, specifically, that doesn’t work for me is they refer to appetizers in restaurants as ‘pu pu’.
“The combination of what you do in the toilet and what you do in a restaurant – it doesn’t go that well.
“When I was first there (in Hawaii), I sat down in a restaurant and they said, ‘Would you like a drink?’ and I said, ‘Yeah.’
“Then they said, ‘Would you like any pu pus?’ I was like ‘What type of restaurant have I walked into?’
The couple is looking as if they’ve come directly off of the Lost set in these photos. Just a tad pew pew.
