A bastardised version of a common English saying. Often mistaken as "words from a Tongan woman's mouth", but actually "words from a Samoan woman's mouth". Often used in Chemistry and shows signs of delayed responses, shortened vowel sounds and "aeh?" to make sure people understand what you are saying, which they never do regardless of you saying "aeh?"
Originated in Mt Roskill Grammar School, named after the Samoan chemistry teacher Mrs Afele.

Longer Afeleism in use:

Student: Uh, potassium iodide Miss?
Afele: Ah NAH'AU!!! Oh wait, oh maybe...
(30 second pause)
Afele: Oh tru!!!
