After being Paroimia-ed

Watched Paroimia 3 times these 2 days. Simply awesome. Something new for me, who came from a small town. Good job to all the crews and performers. And a thousand applause for the director, Darren Ong.

Other than the superb performance, we have Ps Dorai (one of my favourites) to explain the play and to further more relate the story to each one of us. I'm really glad that many responded to the message, and I believe, more seeds were planted.

So, if you have missed the 5 previous shows, make sure you don't miss the last one today at 6pm. Just walk in even if you didn't book.

And please support the DVD and the soundtrack... Most importantly, don't borrow and burn another copy. Lol.

P/s: And I LOOOOVE the jazz band before the Saturday 8pm show started. AWESOME-ness!!! The 3 of them can hold a concert in church and collect donation for charity. Hahahaha... jk.

the last day is coming

Tomorrow will be the last official schooling day for this semester. History assignment "sudah beres" finally. But the next submission for working drawing is still pending. Studio is pending as well. Aiks, that's the worst of all. I think I really need guidance to move on. Too noob to come out with my own idea. Squeeze!!

This semester is indeed another crazy semester. Not in the sense of assignment load, but the stuff that I did. Haha... Well, not going to share them here tho. Will definitely miss those who are graduating in June, especially the 0701 batch.

Now I shall just keep my fingers crossed and hope for the best for the few remaining exam + assignment weeks.

Lord I need You to pour Your strength and blessings on me! And please, please knock my head and give me a few crazy tips for my dear Lat center!

King of all

Yes, I'm a king. Nobody wakes me up except the one above... Shudder~~~

I wonder why these few days there are a lot of 'kamikaze' in my place. Just now I was hunting for one of them. And guess what, I broke its body. And miraculously it's still alive, without the body. It jumped around and flapped before I asked my brother to execute it. Aww...poor thing (evil grin ^^).

ZZZzzz

I'm a king when I sleep. Nobody can wake me up. Not my handphone, my alarm watch, my alarm laptop, or even my brother(s). Nope...useless.

Only I can wake myself up. When I feel like it. Naturally.

So won't you think I'm a king?

This only happens recently. It's getting more and more difficult to stay up to complete my assignments. Haiz...

Egg-xtra?

When I saw this after I updated my antivirus, I felt it funny when I notice the eggs and the hare, or rather rabbit. I was thinking of its meaning. I knew about the egg, which symbolises "rebirth". But what about the rabbit? What does it have to do with Easter? Again... google.

Please refer to the original article at About.com.

Origin of the Easter Rabbit: A Tradition of Fertility

Some of the confusion is dispelled by looking at the origin of the very word, "Easter." For all the pagan traditions associated with it, "Christmas" is at least easily recognizable as a Christian holiday, from its name alone. But Easter is named after Eastre, a pagan Saxon goddess!

Eastre (earlier, Eostre, derived from the Saxons' Germanic heritage) was the Anglo-Saxon name of a Teutonic goddess of dawn, spring and fertility. Our word, "east" is related to this deity's name. Her male consort was the Sun god, and the sun does rise, after all, at dawn and in the east. Rites of spring were celebrated in her honor at the vernal equinox (first day of spring). The first Sunday after the first full moon succeeding the vernal equinox was also sacred to her, and this pagan holiday was given her name -- Eastre. The full moon represented the "pregnant" phase of Eastre -- she was passing into the fertile season and giving birth to the Sun's offspring.

Eastre's symbols were the hare and the egg. Both represent fertility and, consequently, rebirth. Since rabbits are more common in most lands than hares, over time the rabbit has been substituted -- not without merit, since rabbits are notorious for their fertility. Thus was born the "Easter Rabbit" tradition.

Dyed eggs were already being used as part of pagan rituals at the dawn of history in the Near Eastern civilizations. These were the first "Easter eggs." As the traditions of the Easter Rabbit and Easter eggs evolved, they were lumped together -- somewhat incongruously. Thus in our modern Easter lore, although the Easter Rabbit is sometimes thought of as laying the Easter eggs so eagerly sought by children, the Easter Rabbit is nonetheless often regarded as male. Since rabbits don't lay eggs anyhow, I suppose quibbling over gender wouldn't make much sense.

Later, the new Christian religion, with its emphasis on rebirth (through the Resurrection), found it expedient to continue celebrating Eastre's holiday. The focus simply switched to Christ -- and the spelling, eventually, to "Easter."

___________________________________

Yup, a pagan festival, turning into a Christian holiday. Reminds me of the story of the origin of Christmas too. Oh well, I suppose the western countries (especially the US) shouldn't use the rabbit and the eggs to promote Easter. It is just so wrong. Couldn't those people with their creative minds come out with something original yet better as the symbol for the holiday?

Come on, break the tradition.
