In brief...

I'm a Nature-lover, aspiring conservationist, and wannabe traveller in search of outdoor adventure.
My interests vary from conservation to education to heritage to Nature (biodiversity & wildlife) to outdoor activities to life in general.
They occupy most of my waking moment.

Happy Easter - for He is risen!

I somehow always felt Christmas was a more celebrated occasion than Easter, perhaps because of all the additional hype from present-giving. Here of course, there is all the chocolate egg and bunny sales going on throughout the period of Lent, which makes it difficult to think of the penitential season (Advent is a penitential season too I know). To be honest, this was probably my least Lenten Lent in a while, I've been finding it difficult to keep my faith without the support of a community like Fisher House. Nonetheless, it's Easter.

He died for our sins though He is without sin, and is risen now. And that is why we are Christians, and why we believe.

At the last minute, I decided to attend Easter Vigil at the Brompton Oratory last night, and I'm glad I did. It was in Latin, and though the first time I attended Latin mass it was somewhat of a shock, I quite enjoy it now. Makes the order of the mass somehow more beautiful. The lighting up of the altar was also really nice. And I am reminded, perhaps at just the right time, to be a light in this world, and bring light to others' lives, and not despair.
