A Royal Divorce

So the Brits have a Royal Wedding on the 28th April. Practically a month later, to the day, on the 29th May, we’re voting for divorce in Malta. I suppose we could let William & Kate know that if things don’t work out on their honeymoon, they could swing by the little rock on their … Continue reading


Heeding a cry for help…

Recently I was talking to a friend who seemed a bit out of sorts. I asked if he was OK, and suddenly a barrage of family problems was hurled at me. It was shocking and totally unexpected. Definitely not your run-of-the-mill family problems either. Obviously in the situation that this person was in, it never … Continue reading

Good Design. Good Business.

Wandering around Paris on a recent weekend getaway, the wife and I came across posters promoting a graphic design exhibition called ‘Good Design. Good Business’ at Le Lieu du Design. It was a definite ‘can’t miss’ for us. Even though we don’t know Paris very well, we hopped on the Metro and made our way … Continue reading

Stop the world turning I want to get off

At times we go through life busily rushing around, sorting out this and that. ‘When will I get a break?‘. I sometimes find myself caught up in this spiral. A lot of the time it’s not our fault. Our lives  have a knack of taking over our lives. One gets so caught up in everything … Continue reading

Ira & the Ka Individual

Take three exciting new Ford Kas and Malta’s hottest songstress and a team of professionals. Mash them together with alter egos and a chameleon-like celeb, and you have what promises to be an exciting advertising campaign.

The life/bank account balance

I’m still amazed at how my mother kept a house going, brought up 5 kids… four boys and a girl and looked after my father. Granted that times were different. My mother stopped working once she was pregnant with my eldest brother and never went back to work after that. Mainly due to the fact … Continue reading


The posts have slowed over the past couple of weeks, but so has the pace of everything on our little island. The heat is really beating down on us as it rises daily! I promise to get more stuff up here once I manage to peel myself away from the AC! Not a good thing … Continue reading

Watermelon Gazpacho

This is one of my all-time favourite summer soups, since I was a kid. I always liked its tangy, yet refreshing, flavour. My mum used to make this every summer, and from what I can remember it involved tomatoes, green peppers and onions, and many other ingredients, I’m sure. Since it was a favourite, I … Continue reading

Cucumber & Avocado Salad

This is probably one of my favourite salads for the summer, it’s light, easy to prepare (bar quite a bit of chopping!) and totally refreshing. I’ve made this salad twice, and both times it went down a treat. Unfortunately I prepared it the night before, and this was a mistake on two counts… the pictures … Continue reading

Dad and Daughter Day

We got a phone call, first thing yesterday morning… both grandparents were unwell and wouldn’t be able to take care of our daughter for the day. So the wife and I did a quick assessment of the situation, and since the wife had two meetings that day it was decided that I would spend the day with my daughter.
