This week, Te Hamūa Nikora shares a word for those darker moments. Who likes that all-too-familiar feeling you get when you’re trying really, really hard to get something done and it just will not happen? The car won’t start, it’s dark out, raining, cold and your phone just went flat. THAT’S HŌHĀ. Or you just really needed a steak and cheese pie from your favourite bakery in Gisborne, but you now live in Brisbane! Yep, you got it…THAT IS HŌHĀ! I think you may have figured out the meaning of the kupu, aye? Yep, I see you have by that twitchy eyebrow you got going on! HŌHĀ = FRUSTRATED, FRUSTRATING, NUISANCE ETC Sorry…
