I can write about Msida all day long, however sometimes it’s better to just admire pictures of how beautiful our hometown is. Here are some photos that were shared on this Facebook group throughout the last few weeks. Most of these photos are decades old and some of them are actually over a hundred years old!
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.
