Easter Celebrations

The lenten season ended when I attended the Easter Vigil at the Powerplant Chapel!  The venue was overflowing. It was a little hot because of the number of people. Midway through the celebration, I stepped out and stood on the corridor near the escalators. 

I could not understand the priest quite well plus I was distracted by the smell of the pizza coming from Cibo.

The only thing I heard, or maybe chose to hear was the priest saying, Happy Easter!

I could not contain my smile! I probably looked so crazy because I had this secret smile on my face!

Happy Easter?!? The priest said, Happy Easter?!?!?

My lenten sacrifice was not to eat ice for whole season of Lent.  I made a deal with God that I will not eat ice cream so I will not get sick when I go on vacation.

Back to the Happy Easter...... The only thing that came to my mind was.....


I could eat  the Klondike I bought which I hid in the freezer so nobody could see!

Since I attended the vigil, the breaking of my ice cream lenten sacrifice would be the night before easter!

My very first ice cream in 40 days!

After the vigil, PD and I had a snack at Solstice, 8 Rockwell.

Then I went to Ortigas to visit Pinky at Astoria Plaza where she is billeted for a few days of R&R.  We had dinner at Tim Ho Wan, Megamall.

Indeed a Happy Easter!

It was my first time to do a Lenten sacrifice and I loved the feeling of getting excited over the breaking of the fast.

I did not do it solely for the deal with God but to offer the sacrifice to him, as well.
