13-year-old to swim from Gozo to Malta to raise awareness on bullying

13-year-old to swim from Gozo to Malta to raise awareness on bullying
Oct 11 2021 Share

Kai Naudi will be braving the waters between Gozo and Malta as part of the Brave the Wave challenge. The 13-year-old aims to undertake the feat for charity and to raise awareness about victims of bullying. He seeks to show how bullying can be overcome and that things will eventually turn out for the better after he managed to do so himself. “Bullying made me feel excluded, tired, hurt, and rejected. I reached a point when I didn’t want to go to school. But I had to fight it and so I decided to challenge myself to show that I can be who I want to be. The challenge is till you take the plunge. Then, it just flows….” – Kai Naudi said on his Brave the Wave Facebook page. 

The charity will raise money for NGOs Inspire and bBrave. Kai’s coach, Jeffrey Galea, revealed that the youth has been training for over a year to undertake the challenge. Kai picked bBrave as one of the NGOs as it combats bullying, something Kai had to overcome. Training six days a week for two hours each day, Kai hopes to be an inspiration for all. And it already seems to be shaping out that way. We wish him all the best for this challenge! Those wishing to donate can message 50618926 (for €6.99) or 50619215 (for €11.65).

Today’s budget will focus on the future of Malta’s children
Oct 11 2021 Share

The day of the Budget 2022 unveiling is here, and Prime Minister Robert Abela is building up anticipation by stating that this will be a realistic budget which focuses on what we want for our children. Tweeting out, Abela said that the theme of the budget will focus on the upcoming generation – what we want their future to look like and how we can arrive there. ‘Our vision [is] to build a more dynamic, sustainable and fairer Malta.’

He revealed that the vision is based on the ‘feedback of an unprecedented consultation process which has revealed what nation we aspire to leave as a legacy to our children.’ Also speaking on a One Radio interview yesterday, Abela emphasised that it will be one of the most consulted budgets of all time. Apart from revealing the budget’s continued focus on the welfare of elderly, opportunity maximisation and more education, the PM criticised the Nationalist Party for its lack of unity. He said that the country cannot trust a party which isn’t united. The budget will be presented today, 11th October, at 18:30.

This traditional Maltese bakery is giving Nanna’s food a run for its money

This traditional Maltese bakery is giving Nanna's food a run for its money
Oct 11 2021 Share

If you are a lover of Maltese food and haven’t heard of Nenu the Artisan Baker, then do we have the spot for you. Inspired by the legendary craft of Qormi-based baker Carmel Debono, known as Nenu to his family, Nenu the Artisan Baker is a restaurant which celebrates everything that is Maltese.

The restaurant offers an extensive menu of timeless Maltese dishes ranging from Maltese ftira to stuffed squid, traditional Maltese rabbit and so much more. Basically, it’s like a Sunday lunch at Nanna’s… but better (sorry nanna). Local produce and iconic Maltese dishes with not a single foreign ingredient in site; pair that with a tempting twist of ‘Xarbiet Twal’ (long drinks) and you’re in for an unforgettable meal which will leave you wanting more every time.

‘It-Tinsila’

The list of ‘Xarbiet Twal’ includes ‘It-Tinsila’, a mix of Apéritif liqueur & Girgentina Frizzante Brut and ‘It-Tambur’ which is made from a gin liqueuer, ‘Il-Bitter’ liqueur, Red Vermouth and Kinnie, amongst others.

As you can see, the mouth-watering selection of traditional Maltese menu items is bold and plentiful and if like us, you draw a-blank at the sight of the menu, worry not because each and every dish has its own unique and delicious selling point which will definitely reel you in. Our personal favourites have to be the ‘Karmni s-Sultana’ ftira which is Maltese bread dough topped with thin sliced potatoes, roast beef, tomatoes, garlic, fresh parsley and sesame seeds as well as the iconic Imqaret dessert, served with the popular Maltese Ta’ Nenu ice cream.

So whether you’re entertaining foreigners visiting Malta or going for a night out with the squad to celebrate your culture with an unmistakable Maltese feast, Nenu the Artisan Baker is a definite must-visit. To top it all of, with the holiday season coming up, it is the ideal location to organise private functions such as staff parties or birthday celebrations. So great food, gorgeous decor, welcoming atmosphere and Maltese culture, what’s not to like?

…but don’t take our word for it, visit their website and take a look for yourself.

Send this to someone who loves Maltese food.
