Akaw! is Baler’s favorite word when expressing surprise, wonder, disgust, or objection. With nothing much to do today, I tried to find out if the domain name akaw.com is still available for registration. unfortunately, it is already taken. So i tried to dig some more to see if the word means something on the internets. Here’s what i learned:

  1. There is an I.T. company in California, USA named Akaw Corp that offers services in graphic design and IT Systems Analysis and implementation.
  2. In Ghana, Akaw is the name given to a special kind of cocoyam. these are small in size and very tasty. Oftentime they are boiled without peeling. when you suspect they are cooked enough, you remove the covering and enjoy. Akaw is best taken with “Kam Kordaa” a special kind of stew.
  3. There is this Akaw blog in Spanish that features a picture of a surfer in the header.
  4. There is a town in Burma (Myanmar) named Akaw.
