Easter Sunday was the first holiday I’ve really ‘celebrated’ properly in a long time. Even Christmas has a tendency to turn into a party or a long weekend more than it is about family, food and gifts these days. I’ve lived abroad for so many years now (it will be 10 years this year in June!), I have sort of set my own way of celebrating. Personally, my favorite/most celebrated holidays are Swedish Midsummer, Diwali, Eid and Christmas. I guess, except Swedish Midsummer, all three of the latter are sort of about the same thing… Family. Swedish Midsummer is all about the food, flowers and alcohol. Haha!

For this Sunday, I had made an Easter brunch plan with Saif and four of our friends. I even boiled eggs and bought watercolours to decorate an egg for each of us, which we then would use for traditional Swedish Easter games. I love egg tapping! But, by the time I came home from my podcast recording, there was no time left to finish the eggs. I guess its okay to not always have things turn out the way you planned them?

Brunch was at O Pedro in BKC – they had a special Easter menu in place, with groovy music and fancy, fresh cocktails. I love the place – it’s really the best example of how much the staff matters. You end up wanting to be friends with everyone who works there! After stuffing our faces for a couple of hours, we drove back to Zahan’s house to end the day with puppies and pool time.

A better Sunday, to say the least. Hope you guys had a lovely Easter, too!
