easter potpourri

Today, the Christian world commemorates the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. Easter as it is popularly called, is one of the most important Christian festivals. As a Catholic, I went to church this morning to take part in the celebration and to ask Him for forgiveness and salvation.

Before the first reading, something funny happened. The lector said: "A reading from the Acts of the Apostles." Suddenly a kid's voice echoed in the hall, "Mummy, did you fart?"

There was a faint chuckle from the crowd. I looked up and saw that even the priest let out a smile.


After the mass, I went to the Brenchley Gardens at the centre of town. The sun is out and the sky is clear, so I figured it'll be great to take some pictures. I've been living in Maidstone for almost a year now but it was only today that I went to this town's first public park. Spring has just started and so most of the plants and trees are not in bloom yet. Nevertheless, I was still mesmerised by the park's simple charm. I will definitely come back in the summer to check it out.

Here are some of my captures. To view the whole album, click here.


Weather forecasts say that we are going to have more sun for the rest of the week. I hope this holds true because I'm going to Wales! Unfortunately, the trip is not entirely for pleasure. I will be with my manager and fellow supervisors for our team building. We are also checking out our hotel chain's newly opened property.

Me excited!!!


Happy easter y'all!
