I am from Hawaii, so most of the slang words that I use are pidgin. Choke means that you have a lot or a bunch of something, like I have choke Christmas presents to wrap. Bombai means that you will do something later on, like a way of procrastinating. Puka means that something has a hole in it. So if you wanted to say something in pidgin, you could say, “That sweater has choke puka,” or “I have choke dishes to wash but I will do it bombai.”
