Here’s detail interview with Amy Falzo!

NT – Namaste Amy!

Amy – Namaste! 🙂

NT- What is your full name, current education, DOB?

Amy – My full name is Amy Louise Fallan. The name Amy Falzo came from my friends in high school who used to shorten my last name to Falzo and it just kind of stuck. I study full time at Western Sydney University. I’m undertaking a bachelors in communications, majoring in Media Arts & Productions which is basically filmmaking and editing. I’m 5.08 feet, and I was born on the 19th of May 1998, so I recently turned 20.

NT – Where are you originally from and where are you living now?

Amy – I was born in Sydney, Australia and still currently reside here.

NT – When did you come to Nepal for the first time?

Amy – The first and only time (so far) I have been to Nepal was last year during Dashain and Tihar. I was there from the end of September to the beginning of November. It was an incredible experience. I had never tion id=”attachment_2814″ align=”aligncenter” width=”566″]Amy Falzo putting Nepali Tika Amy putting Tika during Tihar Festival[/caption]

NT –  What is your favorite Nepali food?

Amy – Mo:mo!!! 100% chicken mo:mo is my absolute favorite Nepali food by far! They’re just so tasty and quick to eat. I wish I had easier access to them here in Australia. I love also the chicken curry that is served as part of Thakali but thankfully I have learned how to make it very well at home using Nepali recipe and ingredients. Other than that I adore jalebi for breakfast… all Nepali foods are so tasty.

NT – Which was your favorite Nepali musical.ly video so far?

Amy -My favorite Nepali musical.ly I couldn’t pick, I’d have to give a few special mentions. Of my own so far, I really like the Purba Paschim Rail mainly because of the outfit I’m wearing. I absolutely love seeing people duet with me and copy the dance moves, I love to watch them all. Especially when little Chora Chori do the danp-content/uploads/2018/06/Amy-Falzo-putting-Nepali-Tika.jpg” alt=”Amy Falzo putting Nepali Tika” width=”566″ height=”318″ /> Amy putting Tika during Tihar Festival[/caption]

I absolutely love seeing people duet with me and copy the dance moves, I love to watch them all. Especially when little Chora Chori do the dance moves!  Of course, my original Kutu Ma Kutu was a classic and was the one that shot me to fame. Of other peoples musical.ly’s I love any musical.ly where they are wearing a Nepali traditional dress. Some of my favorite Nepali musers are ruu.musical.ly, sanjeevmaharjan, munakanchi and munaghising10. They are so brilliant and lipsync well. Each of them inspired me to start my account. I try to credit them in my videos if I use a song they’ve already done or copied some dance moves they’ve come up with. It’s fair that way.

NT – What is your next plan for Nepal trip?

Amy – I’m not sure at the moment when I will be heading back to Nepal. I’d love to go back soon as I miss the country so much and all the people I know over there. I miss my aunty from Nepal so, so much and wish to see her soon. I have always wanted to go during the time the Miss Nepal crowning is on so I could go to the finale show and watch it. However, I’d love to advocate for Nepal and work with the country to promote tourism and expose it more within Australia to visit. Who knows, I may be back soon than we think.



NT – 2 Good and 2 Bad things about Nepal?

Amy – There are so many great things about Nepal but to put it into two points, I would say…
GOOD THINGS
1. Culture and cultural dress: Australia doesn’t have much if any culture. Nepal is so incredibly rich in culture and has so many festivals, I think especially for foreigners this is one of the best parts of experiencing Nepal. I was especially lucky to live in a Nepali home with my friends, aunty, and uncle so I got a good understanding of Nepali life. I love the traditional dresses of each caste and even just general Nepali clothing, the saree’s and jewellery are so beautiful and intricate.
2. People and food are both amazing: Generally, most Nepali people are so happy, nice and love to meet you. Everyone I met enjoyed my singing of Nepali songs. The food is funny because as a westerner you wouldn’t really think Nepal screams great food… but that’s where we are proved wrong! Nepal has some of the tastiest meals and even the Thakali is so delicious. I miss the food so much.
BAD THINGS
1. Traffic Jam: The traffic system is a major problem that can be improved on if the government comes together. Paving the roads properly to be smooth, line marking, working traffic lights, and a direct road with suitable sized two-way lanes between Kathmandu to Pokhara are all a way to ease transport around (at a minimum) the two main cities and relieve congestions on the road. I know there are a lot of steps to take to get to this stage and Nepal has many other problems it needs to tackle as well but I always believe this is a good start.
2. Language barrier and water: For me, living in a Nepali household for 6 weeks and not knowing the Nepali language that well it became incredibly isolating and lonely at times as I couldn’t communicate with the family I was staying with. Generally, most of the younger generation I met could speak English so that was great, but the older generation of aunties and uncle find it more difficult to communicate. This isn’t really a bad thing about Nepal as Nepali is the national language and I never expected everyone to be able to speak English. However, for me, it was definitely something I struggled with when I couldn’t understand the conversations.
I think people traveling with English speaking friends don’t experience this as much as they can talk amongst each other, but my travel partner was Nepali and would usually switch between Nepali and English. The other minor thing was having to be aware of water. Obviously, not all water is drinkable in Nepal and you have to be careful what you consume. It would be great to see even a long-term plan from the government to try and filter water supplies in Kathmandu to have water running from taps to be drinkable. The good news is Nepal is slowly tackling other problems such as child marriage and declaring chhaupadi System as an outdated practice.

NT – Which is your Fav Nepali celebrity?

Amy – My favorite Nepali celebrity has to be Namrata Shrestha. I’ve watched many of her films and have followed her work for a long time. On the other hand, I have a huge amount of respect for all the Miss Nepal’s both new and older, such as Asmi Shrestha, Malvika Subba, Payal Shakya, Nagma Shrestha, Subeksha Khadka… etc. I follow them all and love to follow their respective journeys and see their future lives unfold. Even look at newly crowned Shrinkhala Khatiwada, she is working to build some medical centers in Nepal – it’s great to follow.

NT – Finally, Are you in a relationship?

Amy – No, I’m not in a relationship. This is a question I get ten times a day at least. I think many people believed I was married as I sometimes like to wear the pote beads and I wear them in my musical.lys occasionally. Realistically, I only wear them because my aunty in Nepal gave them to me as a gift and they hold value to me in that way, not because I’m married.
