I've read that daylight was more-or-less divided into four-hour blocks: 6 a.m. - 10 a.m. kakahiaka, when it is cool enough to work outside. 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. awakea, when it's too hot to work outside except in the shade or work indoors. 2 p.m. - 6 p.m. 'auinalā, when the sun is lower and work outside can resume. 6 p.m. -10 p.m. ahiahi, evening followed by aumoe after 10 p.m. But these are approximate times and DL sometimes extends a block by an hour or so.
Awakea is approximately 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. so in theory, you can have both a.m. and p.m. during awakea, but 11:30 awakea would clearly be a.m. (BTW, am and pm are grammatically incorrect)
further to the comments already on this thread - I said "11:30 in the morning" (although knowing it said awakea instead kakahiaka) to differentiate from "...at night" and was marked wrong - so realize that (maybe?) the best way to treat awakea in English is AM and PM (and midday or noon) as noted. Mahalo!
