its Easter and Good Friday once again..Stan came over to have lunch/dinner with me below my place. (i can no longer differentiate lunch and dinner. cuz i only haf 1 meal or 1/2 a meal a day nowadays)
after which we went to pick Eugene and his bro up and we went to Expo to attend Easter Service at City Harvest Church. The service was really good especially the Play. Really very touching and i was really moved! the pastors were pretty good as well and the people were all really friendly, nice and happening! haha! And i'm glad i made a few new friends there. Felt like a total lost sheep or rather a backslider. i havent actually been to a church for a long time except for the last time that we went to The Hiding Place cuz his bro-in-law was preeching.
Anyway just to share a little about Easter and Good Friday!
Easter (Greek: Πάσχα) is the most important annual religious feast in the Christian liturgical year. According to Christian scripture, Jesus was resurrected from the dead three days after his crucifixion. Christians celebrate this resurrection on Easter Day or Easter Sunday (also Resurrection Day or Resurrection Sunday), two days after Good Friday and three days after Maundy Thursday. The chronology of his death and resurrection is variously interpreted to be between A.D. 26 and 36. Easter also refers to the season of the church year called Eastertide or the Easter Season. Traditionally the Easter Season lasted for the forty days from Easter Day until Ascension Day but now officially lasts for the fifty days until Pentecost. The first week of the Easter Season is known as Easter Week or the Octave of Easter. Easter also marks the end of Lent, a season of fasting, prayer, and penance.
Easter is a moveable feast, meaning it is not fixed in relation to the civil calendar. Easter falls at some point between late March and late April each year (early April to early May in Eastern Christianity), following the cycle of the Moon. After several centuries of disagreement, all churches accepted the computation of the Alexandrian Church (now the Coptic Church) that Easter is the first Sunday after the Paschal Full Moon, which is the first moon whose 14th day (the ecclesiastic "full moon") is on or after March 21 (the ecclesiastic "vernal equinox").
Easter is linked to the Jewish Passover not only for much of its symbolism but also for its position in the calendar.
Cultural elements, such as the Easter Bunny and Easter egg hunts, have become part of the holiday's modern celebrations, and those aspects are often celebrated by many Christians and non-Christians alike. There are also some Christian denominations who do not celebrate Easter.
After the service, we left and head down to East Coast Park, SunsetBay. Was suppose to meet Sylvia there. But last min she didnt come down. Thus just the both of us, we had some drinks and had Potato Wedges and chatted before heading home to rest for the night. And i seriously think the basket of Potato Wedges is quite plentiful! very worth the money. (hmmm or isit just cuz i dont eat much recently...i not sure. but u can go try for urself to decide.) The place looks quite good, except for the table cloth which looks pretty boring. I like the little bird on the table tt can light up too! Aside from that, the ambience and service were not bad. But they're not exactly very attentive though very friendly. And the other thing that i didnt like about the place is that it is very infected with creepy crawlers!! Its a outdoor concept place thus it cant be help as its part of nature. But im just vey afriad of insects!!
the place, our drinks, the potato wedges (left with only 4pcs. forgotten to snap a pict before eating!) and the cute lil bird on the tables.
