Illy coffee and cake for €3 at Le Meridien

Sunday, March 22nd, 2009

Sitting in the kudéta lounge next to the hotel lobby in St. Julian‘s Le Meridien working on some usability fixes on the site. When walking in there’s a big sign promoting: Your choice of Illy coffee plus a cake from our collection of home made pastries. I’m trying a cappuccino with a custard cake, pretty good value for money.

The down side is that they only offer limited speed access to the internet if you don’t want to pay for it. What if I walk up to the desk and say “Hi, I’m just blogging and promoting your place – will you support me by giving me a free voucher?”. I’m not confident that this place is yet mature to understand the power of user generated content so I’ll leave the question un answered.

What’s hot in the pot? Gordy writes the healthy foodblog Pimpthatfood.com

“Make it a daily challenge to find ways to move your body. Climb stairs if given a choice between that and escalators or elevators. Walk your dog; chase your kids; toss balls with friends, mow the lawn.”

Saturday, March 7th, 2009

Claimed to be Malta’s strongest long island iced tea and we couldn’t agree more. Maybe it has something to do with Mr. Borg and his successful wrestling career?
