After finishing her performance at G7 Fridays, as part of Isle of MTV, Ella Eyre filled her suitcase with Twistees and Kinnie to distribute amongst friends and family, who also love the iconic Maltese snack and drink.

In a hilarious TikTok video, which sees Eyre at the supermarket, the chart-topping pop star is seen stocking up on ‘the goods’, as she refers to them, and filling her luggage to the brim. In a previous interview with Malta Daily, Ella Eyre had stated that this is common practice whenever she comes to Malta, and we really can’t blame her.

Do you do this in other countries?

Two local artists have been praised for their work on a staircase mural in Mellieha which brightens up the village whilst celebrating local culture.

Mellieha councillor Annabelle Brincat Stellini took to Facebook to share the progress of an art piece on a Mellieha staircase created by Lewis Zammit and Pierre Zammit.  The steps are located between the Commando Restaurant and The Villager and feature a typical Maltese luzzu surrounded by a recreation of the island’s iconic waters, sea creatures and all!

The art piece is part of the ‘Iljieli Melleħin 2022’ event organised by the Mellieha local council. The series of cultural events in the North of Malta will kick off on Sunday 31st July.

Labour MP Ray Abela also took to Facebook to praise the council and the artists, inviting the 3rd district local councils of Zejtuna, Marsaskala, Marsaxlokk and Ghaxaq to participate in such initiatives to promote local culture.

“Our goal is to provide high quality service to our customers and best earning opportunities to our couriers,” the spokesperson said.

Early on Friday, over 300 food couriers went on strike over a reported decrease in earnings and dispute with the employer. The couriers will reportedly remain offline for the remainder of the day.

The Malta Police Union has shed light on the ‘disgraceful’ conditions of local police stations in recent months, calling for immediate correction of the situation.

“Beyond a ‘decent’ facade, there is a disgrace of a workplace fit for no one, let alone for a Police Officer who spends a 12 hour shift. This is without mentioning the unwelcoming environment the citizen find upon entering the station.”

The Malta Police Union Page highlighted that while some works in other stations have been done, they will continue to follow up to ensure that such actions are not cosmetic quick reactions.

Throughout the summer months, the Malta Police Union had also shed light on the inadequate state of multiple police stations.

“Two years down the line and the so called Malta Police Transformation Strategy is not catering for these issues, which are of utmost importance to our demotivated district officers,” the post concluded.
