A letter to daddy who left us two weeks ago, as we're adjusting our lives to learn how to live without him. Nothing can fill the empitness in our hearts right now. Daddy, Where do I begin? I’m not meant to be writing this... not for another 20 to 30 years at least. Words usually... Continue Reading →
Curtain up in 5!!
Hi there! Wow. I can’t believe I’m actually doing this. If I’d written a post every time I thought about starting a blog, I think I could have written a trilogy novel by now. But I guess it’s never too late!
Finding art in sports
What Olympic sports do you enjoy watching the most? I was never really a sporty person. It was always about the arts with me. Of course, you can still be incredibly physically active, even if you’re not sporty. I used to dedicate as many hours to dance as an athlete would to their training programme.... Continue Reading →
The Ballerina in me
When you were five, what did you want to be when you grew up? The dream was always to be a dancer. I’ve always loved to dance and at age four, my parents sent me to my first Ballet class. I fell in love with the art form, from my very first lesson and dreamed... Continue Reading →

A history of the family holiday A country I’d... Continue Reading →
2 years later… another letter to daddy
2 years later, it hasn’t gotten an easier. I still struggle to accept the fact that I can’t pick up the phone and hear his voice whenever I need a little advice. I’m not sure if it will ever get easier. I still haven’t learnt how to live without my king. So here’s one more letter with all that I wish I could tell daddy right now.
Another year, another birthday… What has it had to offer?
Another year, another birthday - a time for reflection on achievements, hardships, even things we'd like to forget. The experiences we go through however, help us become the people we are. It is up to us to relish that or let it break us. I’m still of the opinion that the past two years have... Continue Reading →
Sisterly bonds in unexpected places
This one's for the girls Sometimes we meet people in life who leave permanent marks on our hearts, and we can meet them in the least expected moments and places. It is then so much harder to say goodbye when it’s time for them to move on to embark on a new adventure. This might... Continue Reading →
On-stage memoirs of a true klutz
On most days, performers are praised for their grace on stage. But I assure you that with a klutz such as myself, that grace can be lost within a blink of an eye. Having just celebrated International dance day, I took a trip down memory lane of my clumsiest theatre moments.
Two years from the week that changed our lives
This week two years ago was the happiest and scariest week of my life. We had the first performance of 'The Addams Family', but we also received news of dad's aneurysm and Malta's first COVID-19 case. The past two years have literally been life altering, but I believe that I've really grown from these experiences.
A short getaway – natural therapy
Life has become too fast and hectic. We all reach points where we need to wind down. What better way to do this than with a short break in nature?
