October 28, 2015 Why don't you... Try traditional Maltese food such as freshly baked cheesecakes (pastizzi), Maltese cheeselets (ġbejniet) made from goat milk, and the local savoury snack, Twistees. Soak up the sun on one of the many benches in Spinola Bay, whilst enjoying a refreshing local soft drink (Kinnie) made out of zesty oranges and spices. Take a walk around the medieval streets of Mdina at night. Warning – it can be spooky! Shop till you drop in boutique shops and retail outlets at the Baystreet Shopping Complex just 10 minutes away from school. When ready, finish off the day with a visit to Hard Rock Café or the bowling alley and cinemas near by. Eat a traditional Maltese meal (fenkata) at one of the village restaurants in St Julian’s and Sliema. Chances are you will also get to try snails (bebbux) and Maltese sausage. Enjoy a bottle of Maltese wine on our school terrace, or, on a hot summer’s night pour a pint of cold, local, beer – the iconic CISK lager. Practice your English with the locals. Visit some of the 360 churches in Malta and admire the beautiful artwork and the many marble sculptures. Go to Dingli cliffs and enjoy the wonderful panoramic views. Dance the night away in one (or all) of the nightclubs in Paceville. There is definitely something for everyone. Jog or walk along the Sliema promenade at dawn and watch the beautiful sunrise. Buy a mouth-watering traditional Maltese bread (hobza or ftira) from a local bakery and stuff it with tomatoes, tuna fish, basil and olive oil. Learn some basic Maltese phrases and practice them with the locals. You can start with: Kif inti? (How are you?) Tajba (F) / Tajjeb (M), grazzi. (I’m fine, thank you). Dress to kill and enjoy a posh night out at Level 22 in the Portomaso business tower (just 5 minutes away from school) and enjoy astounding views from the highest skyscraper in Malta.
