Default Temsah not Tamseh !

Many people here say Tamseh, however it's Temsah (Alligator or Crocodile in Arabic). Anyways, anyone has contacts to the Temsah company/shop in Egypt? any stickers with phone numbers on them?

They used to have a big store in Alexandria (maybe they still do) I was there about 18 months back and had a great time. The narghile I bought was trashed by baggage handlers which was a really shame as the thing was a real piece of art.

In my native Californian language we pronounce it walalatammeshi. I kid, I'd trust your word for it TE, and Hajo, and photolinger. Regardless of how you spell it or pronounce it. It's a neat hookah!

hahaha.

Remember that Maltese is 40% Arabic and is by far the highest ranking language in resemblance to Arabic and the number of loanwords. And yes, it has the same meaning in Arabic !

Remember to wipe your alligator.

I have no opinion on this subject as I don't know either way.
