Easter weekend

Easter break is over! Back to work! In the UK, Easter weekend is a 4 days break cause we celebrate Good Friday and Easter Monday. There are 8 public holidays in UK compared to approximately 13 in Malaysia (state dependant). In the UK kids get Easter eggs (made with Chocolate) on Easter.

Why do we eat easter eggs at Easter?
For Christians, Easter eggs symbolise new life. They believe that, through his resurrection, Jesus defeated death and sin and offers people the promise of eternal life if they follow his teachings. This is why there is a tradition for Christians to be baptised at Easter, which celebrates new life in God.
However, the festival of Easter stretches back to pre-Christian times, too. It gets its name and some symbols, including the Easter Bunny, from the Pagan Spring Equinox festival, which is a celebration of Spring and also of new life.

Weather wise, it was horrible. I think it rained 3 out of the 4 days. So we were indoor most of the time. SO what do you do when you are indoor? COOK of course. Below are some of the dishes we had (some for the first time) over the long weekend. Steph is probably a lot heavier now compared to last Thursday. Well, somebody has to help me finish all my yummilicious dishes.
