    Apparti l-fatt li ahjar titghallem tlissen bil-Malti qabel ma tiktbu, m’hemmx li nibqghu sejrin hekk – inthom tiehdu pjacir li tohorgu bl-unuri u ahna nirbhu t-tazzi minn fuqkhom :) . Kont nahseb li tal-Hamrun kienu jaraw kbir, pero’ issa l-palju ta’ baqar spicca ghandkhom.

    Nerga nghidlek, ahjar tuza dizzjunarju biex forsi nibdew nifhmuk meta tikteb bil-Malti. Minn tlieta u ghaxrin kelma kellek ghaxar zbalji. Min jaf Dun Karm x’jitqalleb fil-qabar minhabba fik.
    Iva nghidlek ghat-tieni darba BAQAR. Xieraq jergghu jghaddu xi 17 il-sena ohra biex taraw bikkjerin. U bilhaqq Roy Rogers fejn kien bil-kappell tal-cowboys u s-sigarru l-bierah ?????????
