Out of all the ideas I have for our hometown Msida, I strongly believe that this one is my favourite. We live in a locality that is surrounded by concrete. Wherever you look at you see buildings. Many of the houses are being demolished and replaced by apartments.
Connectivity is key. Nowadays we all know how important it is to be connected and how imperative it is for a locality to be connected to the huge, worldwide internet grid. Back in the day we used to dream of having Wi-FI everywhere we go. I still remember the first time I went to Milan back in 2007 and they had free Wi-FI almost allover the city. I couldn’t believe that we’re slowly getting closer to to a time where WI-Fi is accessible from everywhere. Fast forward 10 years and the technology advanced so much that nowadays it’s physically and technologically possible for any city to have Wi-FI.
We can’t deny that unfortunately we’re constantly living in a construction zone. I believe that the work needs to be done in order for progress to keep moving forward, however at the same time we need to look at the bigger picture, we need to to cater first and foremost for the residents that live in Msida as they deserve to live in a peaceful and clean locality.
As I’ve said in yesterday’s post, today I’m going to share with you my first proposal for a better Msida. I’ve said this for a long time and I will continue working on this dream of mine until I see it fulfilled. I believe in partnership between entities. The private sector, the public sector and NGO’s alike.
Nestled on the east of the country, at the inner most part of the Marsamxett Harbour, Msida is a gem. A gem on its own merit which connects our capital city, Valletta, to the booming touristic area of Sliema. For many people in Malta, Msida is either a city from where they pass through regularly or else since it’s also home to the University, Junior College and the Mater Dei Hospital, they go to it to either study or for health reasons; yet for us who live in this beautiful city, Msida is home.
