What a special gift, Louis & Jasmine. I am touched. The last time I had chocolate Easter eggs was when we were in New Zealand. I still have a picture of my daughter standing next to a 10 foot tall chocolate Easter bunny taken in a choc factory. Choc Easter eggs aren't found in any supermarkets in KK although Christians are predominant here. It is rather strange while today is a holiday here, the rest of Malaysia (except for Sarawak and Penang?) are working. Same country, different holidays.
Louis & Jas were in Melbourne last month for a photo shoot and they met up with my daughter who is back there for her masters degree. It is so kind of them to get these chocs for me, hand- carry them home and keep them to give to me today, Good Friday. Did you know they were going to do this, Yi? But what's so special about these eggs, other than that they are from Australia's (Melbourne, to be precise) own chocolatier (the other Wonka, Max Brenner, is actually from Israel)? No clue?
Koko's 12-piece Quail Egg Carton
This carton is special because it features the winning artwork by my daughter last year! Out of 20 pieces of short-listed artwork that were hung at all Koko's branches for passersby to vote on, Yi's piece came out top.
If Jesus died on Good Friday, why do Christians say "Happy Easter"? It's because He rose again 3 days later, Easter Monday. He died as a sacrifice for our sins that we may be forgiven. Have a meaningful Easter everyone.
