What once started out as a summer resort for Valletta’s wealthier residents has now arguable become one of the (if not the) cultural centres of Malta! Sliema meaning ‘Peace’ or ‘Comfort’ in Maltese has now developed into a multicultural town with arts and cultural activities to be proud of!
With constant development and beautification of public places and spaces Sliema remains one of the most sought after places to live on the island and will probably remain so for the foreseeable future.
This Wednesday night was the night of the official opening of the new Hugo’s terrace. However the place was “unofficially” open since last Friday, so I had enough time to spend few days and hours at the bar, to be impressed enough and to fell in love with the atmosphere to write this review about it.
I have decided to continue with spreading love; after all we are just recovering from last week Valentine’s. Hopefully all the couples in love continue loving each other the same way as they did it on the 14th. What I will write about today is the loveliest, sweetest and nicest spot in Malta, definitely my No.1 favorite: the LOVE sign.
Unfortunately I don’t have many facts to say about it. The LOVE sign is a statue on Spinola Bay, in the middle of Saint Julians, which was built by the local artist, architect: Richard England.
The time is literally flying and end of March is soon here. Why can we look forward to this, except receiving salaries to our bank account?
I tell you why! The community of Electro Swing Malta after the big success of the Paris Swing Thing in December has just announced their new event: The Electro Swing Revolution.
While for us, foreigners, this weekend was just a casual one, for the Maltese people it was a very important day in the calendar.
Last Saturday was a day of change in the Maltese politics – the Maltese 2013 General Elections were happening on the 9th March 2013. It was a dominant and determining day in the Maltese history as well.
