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!
