    Happy to be so beautiful...

    If the person who is writing to you is from Argentina or Uruguay it is understandable...otherwise, some one is putting you on..

    Besha could be a way of spelling "bella" or beautiful. It sounds as if the person who wrote it was Spanish (from Spain) and wrote it out as it is pronounced.


    As for "Alamte" could be an improper (misspelled) way of the word "alante." In the context of the phrase it means "I'm too in front," or "Too Good"

    Dominicans do use besha for beautiful. So it would seem the initial phrase means "Happy to be so beautiful"

    in Portuguese "besha" = gay person. If your friend is from brazil this could change the translation dramatically ;-)

    Feliz de ser tan besha = Happy to be so beatiful.

    Besha is a fancy way to pronounce "bella" which means beatiful.

    Dominicans pronounce "bella" as "besha" because it sounds cute and endearing, much like the song "Cocha Pechocha" by Los Melódicos.

    (cosa preciosa)

    "... Nena, me cuchurro que cocha pechocha, tu eres mi corazón... tu eres mi dulce amor... Paren, paren, cocha pechocha..."

    That is the sound of the double l in Argentina.
