In Papiamentu, the good things in life are “Dushi”, pronounced “Douchey” (Nope, the irony isn’t lost on us!) Dushi as in ‘Sweetheart’: “Hey dushi, you’re looking great today!” or “I love you, my dushi!” Dushi as in ‘Delicious’: “This pastechi tastes dushi!” Dushi as in ‘Great’: “I’m feeling dushi today!” or “Life is just dushi!” Bottomline: there’s no better way to describe our Dushi Kòrsou! Go ahead… Call your Dushi, Douchey”… He/She won’t mind at all!
