Why oh why do we Maltese have to copy others?! I am posting this blog post since I am totally baffled by the way Maltese TV totally copies foreign TV programmes. Earlier today I was watching Malta’s Top Model. Rings a bell? No?! Let me remind you. America’s Next Top Model? Britain’s Next Top Model? Yes? Right! Maybe the title is a bit similar but the content must surely not be the same. Well, yes the content is the same. The set is the same. The judges are the same. There is even a gay who looks like a lady as part of the judgement team. The top model judge even calls out the names of the winners by giving the ‘models’ photos. The differences between America’s Next Top Model and Malta’s Top Model are these, the judge is not really a top model like Tyra Banks or a fashion idol like Twiggy! The gay judges are wanna-be gays who want to be so like Miss J. or better, ‘sooooo like Miss J.!” (in a flutter-of-eyelashes way). Can’t Maltese be original? I would have preferred a fashion programme. And no, not a Maltese fashion programme where we get to see different fashion outlets where the owner became a fashion specialist overnight and is an expert in fashion they bring from Afghanistan or some weird country. We want to know what’s the fashion in London, Paris, Rome and how we can imitate their dress sense without having to empty our pockets. Also, why not use beautiful Maltese women who are not skinny but a common size 12-14? Ah well, thank God I’m not some producer or that sort of thing!
Anyways, next month Ady will be arriving from France, la belle France! I loved France and the mussels they cook are just heaven on earth. Here’s a picture of them. These ones were with their traditional sausages..YUM!
I will definitely go to Bretagne again to have another taste of them; their taste is still on my tastebuds and I can feel their smooth texture and the taste of the sea! MMMMM! They also have really good desserts , creme brulee being one of my favourite. So Ady is coming next month and am planning our itinerary in Malta, although he will be spending most of his time with his family since I will be seeing him a week after he leaves..in London. I am already planning MY itinerary in London since I received a voucher from Selfridges to which I haven’t been to since I was 15, that is 9 years ago. Gosh, I’m going to be 25 next month! Well, I feel age is not important right now since I’m enjoying what I have to the full. My grandma tells me to remain young but I guess it’s what one feels inside and not how many wrinkles you have. Having said that, mature people also should try out modelling and model for clothes for people their own age. Why not? Which brings me to another TV show idea….. This will never stop will it? I’ll stick to my job for the time being and focus on what I know doing. I’ll leave TV productions for others.
Bye for now. Bisous.
