Happy Easter!

Happy Easter to all of you out there!

Easter is one of those holidays who are not really a holiday. I mean, if Christmas falls on a Sunday, we get Monday off. But not Easter. Easter is not a holiday. We don't get the Monday after off.

But Easter is a holy day. Probably the holiest of them all, in my opinion. I mean, everyone gets born. Everyone gets to die. But not everyone resurrects. In fact, it is so impossible, that we would run screaming in the other direction if anyone we know resurrects. (That, or we'll ask to see other doctor since our doctor is apparently incompetent).

That's what happened on Easter thousands of years ago. The Pharisees and Romans were clearly trying to prove that the resurrection was fake. They had the means and the motives to prove their case. But they failed, because it was true. Jesus rose again! Here we are 2000+ years later celebrating this fact, and yet, we sometimes overlook the significance of this important event. Yearly celebration should be a reminder for us of what happened. Not an excuse to go out and drink-til-you-drop, or to have the Monday off.

With that being said, allow me to brag for a minute or two (or five). =)

Yesterday, we had our Easter Celebration, which involved the story of 3 wise person who got lost and wondered around the earth for 2034 years, 6 months, and 21 days earth time. Irwan, Simon, and Yuli become the wise person from Jakarta, Surabaya, and China. They acted wonderfully funny.

The choir, which always give me a heart attack, were behaving. Hehehe... they usually are. Well, at least they memorized the songs and the movements. They even made the same mistake (all of them) on the same spot, so that nobody knows that they have made a mistake (hopefully).

Adit was ready for his solo. He had grown a lot during these last couple months as a singer. He could totally forget what's going on out there and focus on his role. That was good. Mega was also well-suited with her role. Well, she always has this "vulnerable but strong" expression on her face. It's imprinted, I guess. It would be fun to see her in other roles, though. Jessica was great too. She knows how to act well. Her cries cut through the air and stab at your heart. She knows where to move, what gestures to make. I want to see her act more.

One thing I am still amazed about is sound system. We practiced with the soundtrack, like, 3 hours before the start time. And yet, Daniel executed it nicely. Also, we forgot about microphone most of the time. Well, I remembered, but by then, it's too late to do anything about it, so I only asked the choir to sing out more. God knows we have been struggling with voice power. Yet, the audience said that they could hear clearly what was being said. I am grateful for that.

Amigurumi: Mario Bros Mushroom

I found out that I had a stash of acrylic yarns left (in the storage), and so I was looking around for patterns/stuff I can use them for. I ended up finding Amigurumi , and of course the pattern I wanted uses the colors of yarns I did not already have. I ended up buying another stash of acrylic yarns in different colors. Thankfully, Zellers had it on sale. In any case, my first Amigurumi project was the Mario Bros Mushroom. I found out (too late), that I was doing the red part wrong. I crocheted from the back loop only, instead of from both loop. Hence, the "head" is taller than it's supposed to be. But since I didn't realize it until after the head was completed, I decided to leave it as it was. Mushy I gave this one to Chris, just because he wanted one. This became another addition to his "work buddies", as you can see below. Chris's "Work Buddies" But bad Chris! He made Mushy to be the bad guy (I think). Chris called this scene "
