  • I’ve always loved laughing. Since I can remember, I have had a very loud laugh. People know me as the one who laughs a lot.

    When I was 12, I used to laugh uncontrollably. I invented new ways to laugh, just so as to entertain my friends. My uncle used to call me “Favettuwa”, a Maltese nickname meaning female bean. It had nothing to do with my actual laughter but I used to remind him of this old neighbor’s laugh. It was her nickname - charming!

    As I grew older, I used laughter to break the ice – before auditions and piano exams, during TV shows or even on air (I present on TV and radio from time to time). My laughter has been the subject of many meetings with producers – too loud, contagious, not very ladylike, out of place, too frequent …

    I married a guy who laughs louder than me, loves my laugh, is jealous when someone else makes me laugh and writes comedy. I have a feeling that laughter rules my life.

    The other day I heard my 2 year old son laughing loudly at a bouncing ball. He was playing with my mum, and laughing at the ball when it didn’t bounce back. I was teaching piano and it was such a beautiful moment. It made my students laugh as well. That night he laughed in his sleep.

    I sigh after a good laugh. Laughter gives me such pleasure. I always remember a good, hearty laugh.
