We started Christmas Eve by taking our guests on a sightseeing tour. When we left Swieqi we saw two Volvo cars. I don’t think I have seen more than 5 Volvo’s here on Malta, so I had to document the moment.
What a day!
I decided to do some christmas shopping today. And so did the rest of Malta I think! I took the bus to Valletta and stayed there for several hours looking for christmas decorations and christmas gifts.
In the afternoon I went to Sliema to buy some clothes and more gifts. when I was done I had 3 big shopping bags in each hand. After spending 20 min waiting for the bus I gave up and found and started looking for a taxi that could take me to St Julians. By then I was really tired.
10 min and €12 later – candy heaven!
I just couldn’t resist! I try not to eat candy, but when I left the store I had bought at almost 1 kilo of Malaco smågodis (pick n mix), OLW chips and ostbågar. Yammy!
Findus vegetables are found in the freezer counter in most stores on the island.
We bought Swedish bread today! Wasa Original from Filipstad in Sweden.
Is crispbread Swedish?
Crispbread has been baked in Sweden by Wasabröd since 1919, and is now sold in over 40 countries around the world.
Where does the name Wasabröd come from?
Wasabröd is a combination of the two words Wasa and bröd. Bröd is the Swedish word for bread and Wasa is associated from the name of the Swedish king Gustav Vasa and was picked to create an easy recognizable brand for all Swedes.
Swedish matches are popular here in Malta. The match boxes in the photo are from Pavi but I’ve also seen them at Greens and other stores.
This is another contribution to the Sweden abroad category. Well, the brand is not Swedish I think, but the text on the bag is in Swedish anyway. Lättsaltade chips are also available. …but I still haven’t found any dillchips.
I just read on En plats i solen that there is a new store in St. Julians that sells SWEDISH candy! It’s called Candynavia. I miss Ostbågar and Dillchips! But as it looks now I could be eating ostbågar next weekend! Happy!
I’m definitely going there later this week!
Have any of you swedes checked if Halland is still to be found i Sweden? Because I found Halland here in Malta…
…and for you who doesn’t understand the joke; Halland is a province in Sweden.
I’ve found Findus “Klassiska & goda” meat balls in one of the stores nearby. I knew they had Findus frozen vegetables, but I’ve never seen meat balls here before.
