She had been lying on that bed forever but no-one had ever seen her awake! Then, one day, the thirteenth son of the strongest giant in the land, Butlettax, thought it would be a good idea to paint the big, sleeping lady a different colour. He crept up slowly, bucket of paint in hand, but as soon as his brush touched her nose something that he never expected happened… something that got the whole island moving! Life would never be the same. A hundred years later, the elderly people of this land still spoke of that day, saying it was the most unforgettable day of their entire life! Join us to find out more about the day the sleeping lady woke.

Kienet ilha mixħuta fuq is-sodda minn dejjem ta’ dejjem, imma ħadd ma kien qatt raha imqajma! Imbagħad, f’ġurnata waħda, it-tlettax-il tifel tal-aktar ġgant b’ saħħtu fl-art kollha, Buttletax, ħaseb li kienet tkun idea tajba li jiżbogħ lill-mara l-kbira li kienet rieqda kulur differenti. Mexa nkiss inkiss b’bott taż-żebgħa f’idejh, imma hekk kif il-pinzell tiegħu missilha mneħerha, seħħet xi ħaġa li qatt ma stenna …xi ħaġa li ġiegħlet lill-gżira kollha tiċċaqlaq! Il-ħajja qatt ma kienet ser terġa’ tkun l-istess. Mitt sena wara, ix-xjuħ ta’ din l-art xorta baqgħu jitkellmu fuq dik il-ġurnata, li kienet l-aktar ġurnata memorabbli ta’ ħajjithom kollha! Ingħaqad magħna biex tiskopri aktar dwar meta stenbeħet il-mara rieqda!
