The week that was

This week was full of silly antics and news stories - from the Maltese elite being embarrassed by Malta’s potatoes, to Jason Micallef being given the power to single handedly ridicule (sic) the country....their words not mine. Between these two...

Chiara’s Zarbun

I love Chiara, but I’m not quite sure I want anything to do with her Zarbun. Truth is, this artist is the epitome of natural talent, sheer determination and guts, and to top it all off she’s got a burning personality that makes it hard not to like...

Work Will Set You Free

I just came back from a super holiday in Berlin, but as much as I’m tempted to sit here and write about how amazing this city is, I won’t because I don’t think that my descriptive writing skills will ever do it justice. So I’ll just say one thing...

Behind a Great Woman...

Just like the Mintoff years I don’t remember much of the Thatcher years either. All I know about the two is what I’ve heard and read; ultimately second, third and fourth hand information. But as unreliable as such information can be, one thing is...

Life Lessons

For the past few weeks I’ve been working on an online arts auction in aid of charity. The aim is to fundraise enough money to send 15 under privileged boys on holiday during their summer holidays. The boys are aged between eight and 18 and are...

Men do it differently

The dead of winter seems to be over, and with it the pits of small island politics. I don’t know which one of these I’m happiest about but, the combination of the two is making me break into dances of joy wherever I am. Of course the political...

It’s a girl!

Just in case you hadn’t noticed, we’re now well into 2013, the electoral mayhem is finally over and, lo and behold, the sun is still rising from the East. But our ceasefire was short lived because as soon as the ballot sheets were put aside, we...

Before I shut up

Election fever makes people say and do all sorts of things. Yesterday, an old friend of mine publically ‘accused’ me of being selfish. She told me that my support for Alternattiva Demokratika is based solely on my wanting gay marriage to be...

Questioning Madness

Last week, a relative of mine was worried sick that for the first time in her life, she might have landed herself a traffic ticket. I too was kind of shocked to hear this news because the person in question never goes over 20km/hr, keeps her car...
