Easter with the Giddy T’s

This year, Easter is celebrated much earlier (March 23rd) than other years. In fact, the next time this would happen would be in the year 2228 (220 years from now) . Good Friday saw me fasting and praying for the first time in at least three years. Since I am neither pregnant nor breastfeeding this year, it was the perfect time for me to fast, pray and dedicate my thoughts solely to the day Jesus gave His life on the cross for me. Hubbs and I had planned on going to church for the service at noon, but due to unforeseen circumstances, we didn’t…and we are kicking ourselves for that because had we gone, I might have been able to post a picture of the Giddy Tigress with the newly appointed Chief Minister of Penang, Lim Guan Eng. Not that we are stalking him or anything like that, though…but if I do bump into him, I would love to extend a warm hello and welcome as a friendly *neighbour*.

On Saturday, we made a day trip to Ipoh to celebrate my nephew Collin’s full moon. It was again another excuse to stuff our tummies with food. Hehe… no regrets there. In fact, we were so full after the lunch that all plans of tar-powing the famous Canning Garden chee cheong fun vanished into thin air (although the stall was only a stone’s throw away). Ah well. There’s always next time.

Then came Easter Sunday. As usual, the church was packed full to the brim with parishioners (methinks some of them were hoping that the CM would make another appearance). We had to make do with sitting on plastic chairs placed by the pews, because we were ummm….a few minutes late. Actually, it was rather a blessing in disguise because we had a full view of the altar and was able to concentrate 100% on the sermon being delivered. Well…maybe 90% because of intermittent distractions from Ethan.

It was also Race Day (Sepang Formula 1 Grand Prix) and Super Sunday (Barclays Premiers League) that day, and hubbs hinted VERY loudly that he would prefer homecooked food for dinner that night. So I bought a few items from Jusco for cooking dinner. I was only able to start cooking at 5:55p.m. though, that’s when Ethan finally fell asleep. One hour later, I managed to whip up a piping hot dinner, one which hubby gave the thumbs up to, much to my delight. *grin*

Although Race Day ended with Kimi getting what he deserved (yay!!!), I shall choose not to say anything about the Super Sunday score, which I don’t think was super at all. Bleagghhh….

    LOL, then there will be another pair of eyes to see if the CM knows the Hail Mary. Another blogger WMD told me she saw his mouth moves during Our Father and not Hail Mary and Glory. We were all so patphor to guess his religion. Hahaha. I was on duty jaga the 240 slides on that day (due to stations of the cross etc) so I really have no time to ‘khap’ too much. But he did kneel, stand x 15 times of the stations of the cross though.

    The Giddy Tigress says: What are you guys doing counting how many times he stood and knelt? Hehehe…..

    The Giddy Tigress says: Ah…you Man U supporters all love to rub it in! Sheesh! I thought you like Kimi…looks like supporting the constructor is more important to you eh?

    Glad it was a good Easter for you! And what’s that fungus, kei chi thing on the top right picture? Looks delish!

    The Giddy Tigress says: Oh, that dish is steamed cod fish. Made it specially for Ethan. I added the fungus (cleanses blood) and kei chi (good eyesight) because I discovered I still had some of it in the fridge! So easy to make too!

  5. Cheesey Poo says:

    Wow.. you’re a really good cook, GT! I’ve yet to figure out how to fry a fish.

    And yes, I agree with you… the results were so NOT super. *sniff, sniff*

    The Giddy Tigress says: Well, I guess there were a few burnt fishes before it came out crisp and golden. The most important thing is to ensure the oil is piping hot. And I’m not gonna talk about the non-super results. Boo! 🙁

    Hey a bigger chief is always there for you to meet in church… 😛

    Blessed Easter to the Giddy T’s! This year was the second time in my life that I missed church on Easter Sunday… *sad*

    The Giddy Tigress says: Blessed Easter to you too Rinnah! Well, as long as you keep the message of Easter in your heart, you are celebrating it already!

    Chee cheong fun at Canning Garden better, or the one at Old Town? 😀

    The Giddy Tigress says: Never tried the Old Town one…are you referring to the authentic Ipoh Old Town coffee shop or the Old Town franchise?

  9. Allan says:

    Ahhh…grand slam sunday and F1 Race day results were SUPER for me!…tee hee hee….*heartless bro..*

    The Giddy Tigress says: Not saying anything….*bah*

  10. ehon says:

    The Giddy Tigress says: Home cooked food is always the best, doncha agree? Even though it is simple…

    Well, even though I was there too, I didn’t know that the CM went as well until I read the papers. I didn’t expect it to be that crowded at such hour. And my, what nice dishes. 2 types of fish? So healthy 🙂 Btw, I didn’t know there’re prawns in Jusco.

    The Giddy Tigress says: Yes, I find the fish in Jusco very fresh, and the prawns are mighty succulent too, I’d add.
