I perceive "lupa" as "empty" (and "hollow"), too. "full" would be "lupa ala" then. "jo e ala" might work, too.
If lupa = "empty", then lupa ala = "not empty", though that would not necessarily mean that it is "full" (it is just not empty).
Just as if pini = "full", then pini ala = "not full", though that would not necessarily mean that it is "empty" (it is just not full).
poki li lupa — cup is empty
poki li lupa ala — cup is not empty (though may not be full either)
poki li pini — cup is full
poki li pini ala — cup is not full (though may not be empty either)
