BUGIBBA

“Home is where you feel at home and are treated well.”– Dalai Lama






MY NEW HOME.


It’s been  9 months since I moved here, and dude, I am in love with this place. Couldn’t imagine me living anywhere in Malta than here tbh. Lol

From perfect sunset to kick-ass beach, name it, bugibba has it. A paradise on my own opinion. 




Bugibba witnessed a lot of transition in my life. From being an anxious man, in love, happy, fucked up, drunk as hell, crazy, broken-hearted to who am I today.


I’ve met a lot of people here, from being strangers to friends. 

Have a lot of memories here. Mainly with friends coming over for night fishing, having drinks and spending sleepless nights. 

Spent the whole winter freezing here. Sweating during summer. Falling in love at spring. Enjoyed the fall. 



I’ve written an article about Bugibba to show some of my shots during my photo walk sessions at the bay, such an aesthetic. Enjoy!

BLOOM

“The earth laughs in flowers.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

What if the world is full of blossoming flowers? Imagine the world full of colors… Happiness. Peace. Tranquility.


Imagine having a bad day, depressed, anxious, angry, broken, confused or so, then seeing a place full of flowers, such a wonderland. What would you feel? Calm. Serene. Carefree. Untroubled. 


Truly, they are the soul of the Earth. 


A sweet ecstasy. Such a natural Zen master. 



Uplifts your spirit. Just look at the flowers, the trees, the green grasses, close your eyes and listen deep within. It transcends normal happiness. 




Such a pity spring only comes some time in a year. Can we have a spring season all year long? Lol. That’s heaven. 




Now, spring is officially over, but the colors it brought to us will remain whole year long.

A SHORT FILM

“Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life.”      – Omar Khayyam


When we’re lost, we tend to wander. And by wandering, we tend to go places, meet new people and gain new experiences.

The best part of it was meeting new people. It doesn’t matter if he’ll stay or not. The fact that he made you happy when you’re down was simply amazing. 

It’s not a love at first sight, but I know he’s special.
“Nice to meet you!”



And he smiles that stuns like a laser. What a creature.

He has a cute accent. Like a lullaby in my ears. An Italian. 

He’s a tourist. He’ll leave soon. Three more days left in this island.

Who cares though.

We chill. Endless talks about our personal life. 

A twist in our story.



He was shook when I told I am a nurse. Can’t figure why. Then boom!

He’s a doctor. A fucking doctor.

And now I get it why there’s a connection since the first time I saw him.

A nurse and the doctor brought together by fate.

Then a realization hits on my circulation. He’s a tourist, leaving in three fucking days! Wow. Just wow.

We made the most of every second.


Too bad I have work the next day. Came to work, didn’t met him that day.

THE LAST MEET UP.

We started the night on his hotel room. We get drunk a bit. Talk and so.


Then went out on a dinner date. Quite romantic honestly. The usual talk.

“How’s your day?”

We tried not talking about him leaving the next day.

Two opposing feelings.

Happiness and sadness.

I’m glad we’re having a dinner night out of course but sad at the same time cos he’s leaving. 

Ambivalence.

We enjoyed the food. 

I had chicken burger, he had seafood paella.

Few more drinks.

Then we walked and enjoyed the beach. 

He’s so curious about Malta, he has plans in buying a house here for investment. That excites me, imagine him, going back here. But naa, don’t keep your hopes up Kurt. You’ll never see him again. 

We went back to his hotel room. To say goodbye. To make memories. Memories that we need to bury soon. Memories we cannot relive.

Nostalgia.

Then, goodbye. Will we ever gonna see each other again? Who knows?

I wish I can say, see you later doc! But that’s it. Like a blink of an eye. A short film has ended.

DINGLI CLIFFS

“Living at risk is jumping off the cliff and building your wings on the way down.”    – Ray Bradbury





DINGLI is a village in the Northern Region of Malta. 13 km away from Valletta. This village is one of the highest points of Malta, towering above 250 meters above sea level. One of the famous spots here is the Dingli Cliffs.





The cliffs provides a spectacular sight! You’ll definitely enjoy the view of Mediterranean Sea. It’s fascinating tho, it’s not just a tourist spot, cos from what I’ve learned, throughout history, the cliffs serve as a natural defender from pirates and invaders! (Coooooool!)




It’s worth a visit guys, trust me. Don’t forget your camera cos it’s a picturesque masterpiece. Although there’s not much to do here, just enjoy the view, have a picnic, bring a wine (but stay away from the edge of the cliff!), have a cliff walk from Dingli to the Blue Grotto, dine at the restaurant here or if you’re lucky, you’ll find the food van of Pucci Pucci Gelato! Wooh! I tried the Gelato Sandwich and it’s fucking good! 👌🏼

A MOTHER’S LOVE

“I think in a lot of ways unconditional love is a myth. My mom’s the only reason I know it’s a real thing.”       – Conor Oberst


Unconditional.

Authentic.

True.

Infinite.

Unlimited.

That’s just some words to describe a mother’s love.

Imagine carrying us for 9 months in their wombs? Imagine risking their life giving birth to us? Imagine pampering us when we’re newborns? Singing lullabies for us to sleep, for us to feel at ease and for us to feel safe. Feeding us. Carrying us all the time! Those sleepless nights just to look after us. That’s called sacrifice.

A mother’s love has no limitations! That’s what my mamy showed unto us. That’s what all of our mothers showed unto us.

She loves us more than she loves herself. She gave everything for us. Prepared our breakfast. Drives us to school. Iron our clothes. Every fucking thing!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there!

Happy Mother’s Day to my Mamy! You taught us how to be strong! You taught us how to show kindness to everyone no matter what. Thank you for always lighting our path! I love you so much. I’m a proud mama’s boy!

NOTE TO SELF

“Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.”

–  Lucille Ball

I’ll bring you home now. I want you to be safe. You’ve been wandering for a long time now just to find your self. You’re still lost. That’s why I’m bringing you home. Don’t worry, you’ll find your self eventually. 

You’re weak. You’re vulnerable. It’s time to take care of yourself now. You’re good at it remember? Taking care of others.

You don’t need someone. You just need your own self. 

Stop worrying about things. Remember what your friend told you, live day by day, stop worrying about tomorrow. 

Trust your self. Believe in your self. I know you’re capable of doing everything you can imagine. 

Don’t rush things. If it’ll happen, it will happen. 

Always remember this, you’ve been through shits. Life fucked you up big time, but look, you’re still standing. You’re still bringing smile to everyone. 

You’re hurting. I know. But—you need to learn how to let go. Be free. 

Hakuna Matata bruh.

MDINA DITCH

“I am a glutton for tranquility.”
– Wole Soyinka

Mdina Ditch was inaugurated last March 6, 2013. From being an open space with almost 300 trees, mainly Citrus, Olive & Cypress Trees to being a tourist destinations garden.


The bastions were restored as well.


If you’re wondering what happened to the trees, they were uprooted and carted away. 

History: 

First created in the 15th Century

Rebuilt by the Knights of St. John’s military architect Charles Francois De Mondion.


Another place to visit when you’re vacationing in Malta. A soothing spot to spend an afternoon. Take a selfie, watch the kids play, sit on the bench, read a book, and enjoy the spot!

CONCLUSION

Have you ever felt that you’re in a Nicholas Sparks’ movie?

Setting: Ghajn Tuffieha Bay

Perfect weather. The moon. Stars shining bright. The beach. The sand. The waves. Him. Us.

Such a perfect moment for a final fun night. A conclusion. The ending for an exciting chapter.

Why?

‘Cos some rules were broken. It was to be just for fun. Screw attachments! Screw feelings! But that’s impossible. It has to end now. But before closing this part, it deserves a final night. One last time. One last fun.

The usual.

Late night. Picked me up. Road trip. Enjoying the view. City lights. The wind. The music. Him. Us.

Routinely, we will find a secluded place. Then fun. Not tonight, there’s a surprise. An unexpected one honestly.

It was special. 

Him.

The beach.

The moon reflecting light.

Fun.

Us.

It’s kinda thrilling when you know it’s the last fun for the both of you.

Waves.

Stars.

Adrenaline.

Him.

Us.

Curtains closed.
