berbicara dengan orang putih ini, terutamanya dengan minah yang berasal daripada Scotland memerlukan tumpuan dan ketekunan yang tinggi. bayangkan bila setiap kali dia bercakap, saya kena tenung dalam-dalam mukanya, dan lebih tajam pada mulutnya. entah apa yang Amanda fikirkan bila setiap kali saya bercakap dengannya.
