Aloha! Welcome to ShisoFI!
She so FI. Shiso FI. Whatever works for you. I've got explanations for both. In Hawaii, things often have more than one meaning, or kaona.
Shiso FI: Shiso nods to the local flavors and tastes of Hawaii. Shiso is a Japanese word that describes a tasty little leaf that pops up from time to time on a plate of sushi, around mochi, or if you are really lucky, muddled in the bottom of a shaker by one of Hawaii's awesome bartenders at places like Town or The Tchin Tchin Bar.
She so FI: Three words. Phrase. Sounds like..."She's so fine." (Just me or does this song play immediately in your head, too?) I liked this for two reasons.
First, there seem to be a lot more guys in the FI and FIRE (Financially Independent, Retiring Early) space, that I wanted to share a woman's perspective and experience. (Note: there are some couples, so maybe I should say a single woman's perspective.)
Lastly, I've come to the conclusion that being FI is the sexiest. FI is fine.
I'm a thirty-something wahine living in Honolulu hoping to reach financial independence (FI) by July 4th in the grand ol' year of 2021. You can read about my discovery of the New American Dream on my first blog post.
