I think I've finally figured out the difference between "Ku-wai-e"(sounds like Hawaii) and "Ko-wai" (please excuse the misspellings) The first means cute, atleast I hope it does because a few Japanese boys said I was "Kuwaiee" tonight. They were drunk. The second means "scary"..I believe I accidently told a student that her shoes were scary yesterday. Kate-sensei when will you ever get it right? Tomorrow I go to Tokyo! Yea birthday fun!
