To keep mum...??

Simpan emak?Nooooo! To keep mum means to keep quiet over something, keep quiet.

The children kept mum when their father asked who spilled the drink.
Anak-anak itu semua senyap apa bila bapa mereka tanya siapa yang tumpahkan minuman itu.

Teringat cerita Mr.Bean, keeping mum.

yang ini lebih kepada british. makna movie tu 'keep mum' is simply to keep quiet/keep a secret.
The story is about a pastor who is preoccupied with writing the perfect sermon, failing to realize that his wife is having an affair and his children are up to no good.Cerita black comedy.

*an actor (perkataan yang pakai vowels aeiou kebanyakkannya guna an)
*this movie (those movie - plural for that)

nanti i tulis pasal bila nak guna a /an dan bila guna this and that.

* the actor...sebab you refer specifically to Mr.Bean. Kalau sesiapa sahaja boleh guna an actor.

Contohnya:
Who is that lady? I think she's an actor. (tak specific sangat)

Is he the actor in Wanted? Yes, he is the actor. (specific)
