the Aussie way

Olive twigs, not young coconut leaves.
Palm Sunday 2010 at St. Vincent de Paul
Port Wakefield, South Australia




Cadbury's chocolates in colourful foil wrappers.
...in preparation for the Easter Sunday 2010
Port Wakefield, South Australia



Did you know that Australians would start greeting each other a 'Happy Easter!' as early as Holy Monday? I have, actually, received four Happy Easter greetings and have eaten five egg-shaped chocolates since the start of the Holy Week.

Kaunti lang po ang nagsisimba sa Roman Catholic Church sa Australia compared sa Philippines. Sabi ng Wikipedia, noong 2006 census, 26% ng mga Australians ang Roman Catholic, 19% ang Anglican, at 19% ang nagsabing wala silang religion. Ang remaining % ay ibang religions na.

Hahaha! Iba ang nasa isip ko sa nabasa kong hahanapin niyo ang itlog niyong nawawala. U

Hi, RJ... Happy Easter! [sakto ang pag-online ko :)]

Happy Easter, RJ. To you and your loved ones!

Ganun din dito sa Saudi. Medyo warped ang Lenten celebration. Last Friday, I attended an Easter mass. We sang joyful Easter songs pero at the back of my mind, Holy Friday pa rin ang mode ko. Hehe.

(We finally launched the journal, RJ. Please visit and share me your thoughts).

the festivities here in UK is far from the solemn Easters we have in Pinas. In here they exhaust more in easter eggs and bunnies chocolates.

Pareho din pala ang celebration ng easter ng Australia and US. Marami rin egg chocolates at mga eggs na toys
