Play stops Work in Malta


NOTHING worse than going on holiday for a relaxing time only to hear construction noise, well head to #Malta because they have it sorted.

Tourism areas will be spared the noise and disruption caused by demolition and excavation works over the summer months, in accordance with a legal notice banning such work between June 15 and September 30.

The ban is being spearheaded by the Planning Authority, the Building Regulation Office and the Malta Tourism Authority (MTA).

It is aimed at alleviating the intrusion that construction sites have on both the tourism industry and the number of Maltese families who move to their summer residence.

Popular Vegas Chinatown restaurant Chubby Cattle relaunches

CHUBBY Cattle upgrades include open view display kitchens and hand-cutting bar; where certified A5 Miyazaki Wagyu from Japan and their own breed of Dorper lamb are hand sliced per order.  The sheep are raised organically on their own open pasture. This provides their restaurants with the best 100% grass fed lamb. 

To provide the most authentic hotpot experience in the #USA, Chubby Cattle owner Hai Bin Yang went back to his native Inner Mongolia in China and had DNA tests done to match the sheep that are native to Inner Mongolia. Sourcing the best lamb for Chubby Cattle has been one of his biggest concerns since the planning stages. After several tests, the South African Dorper Sheep was found to be the closest, perfect match.

Black head Dorper lamb have been specifically bred to produce superior quality meat, not wool. This depletes the lanolin in the fat which gives the meat a milder, less gamey flavor.

Under the Radar Florida Beach Destination

NEW Smyrna Beach, a relatively under-the radar beach destination on the USA’s Atlantic coast, possesses an old town charm rarely found in holiday hot-spot, #Florida. For visitors who haven’t ventured this way before, 2017 is the year to discover #NewSmyrna, as the beach beauty beckons with exciting openings and new experiences to entice travellers. 

Located north of Cocoa Beach and just south of Daytona Beach, New Smyrna Beach offers a different experience to the Florida that Brits are most familiar with. The beach town offers miles of white sand and beach activities, fascinating historical sites, a year-round calendar of cultural events and eclectic shopping and dining experiences.

There are many arts, foodie, sport and beach events and festivals hosted throughout the year in New Smyrna Beach but, new for 2017, will be a “Restaurant Week”, taking place in Autumn 2017 and set to further build on the fantastic reputation the beach town’s dining scene enjoys amongst locals and holidaymakers alike.
