Last time I was listening to DanuSan breakfast show on Radju Malta (jifqawin bid dahk mnAlla jkunu huma filghodu) and one of the guys from the Aquarium said that a hammiema tal-bahar (sorry forgot the name in Eng) had like 6 - 8 hatched babies which is not so common in other aquariums.
:lol: liked the comment about the fact that by the time I'd go some of the fish will be a bit bigger.

I don't mean to turn this into an architectural thread but do you mind confirming the date that church dates back to? From the naves on the sides it looks like 1400 to 1500 but the shapes of the doorsills and columns threw me off as more modern.

It is not very old, because there is a story about it ... in the 19th century a certain Karmni Grima had a vision and decided to build a shrine...
And from that it became a big nice church were a lot of Catholics go to pray our Lady which is miraculous. I'll try to find some more accurate info,

construction of a magnificent church in Romanesque Style began in 1920. In 1932 the new Church was blessed and opened to the public and in 1935, Pope Pius XI raised it to the dignity of Minor Basilica. In the same year the miraculous image of Our Lady was crowned by Cardinal Alessio Lepicier, by decree signed by the Secretary of State Cardinal Eugene Pacelli later Pope Pius XII.
In May 1990, Pope John Paul II came to Ta' Pinu Shrine and after praying in the Chapel he celebrated mass in the forecourt and decorated the image of Our Lady with five golden stars, as testimony of our people's love to the blessed Virgin Mary.
While on 18 April 2010 Pope Benedict XVI, on his first visit of Malta, presented a golden roses. While addressing the crowd gathered at Floriana, before he recited the Regina Caeli Pope Benedict expressed his pleasure: "I am aware of the particular devotion of the Maltese people to the Mother of God, expressed with great fervour to Our Lady of Ta' Pinu and so I am pleased to have the opportunity to pray before her image, brought here specially from Gozo for this occasion. I am also delighted to present a Golden Rose to her, as a sign of our shared filial affection for the Mother of God. I ask you in particular to pray to her under the title Queen of the Family..." [source]

Fomm ir-Rih Bay, Malta. In my opinion one of the most beautiful places in my country. I hadn't visited it for quite a few years.

The countryside and scenery is great. Most inhabited areas don't look good though in my honest opinion, although there are a few gems.

Same here in Pakistan. The urban areas are so polluted and congested that you just want to run away from the cities. There are some historical buildings from the Mugha era (1520s until the british invasion in 1857) in the older cities but other than that, its all traffic and dirt and smoke.
The northern areas are amazing; lush greens valleys among snow capped mountains. I plan on going to these places in the next 10 months or so. I'll be sure to post some pictures here if I do go :D
