For the first time, my eldest daughter, Angelika Jane, went on a trip alone. Not very far away, though, just Denmark. Although, she was going to my husband’s family, I could not help but be worried. Even if she is 15 years old, in my eyes, she is still my baby. I guess, all parents never really get pass the point where kids grow up. Or is it just me?
The right photo is Oslo Gardermoen Airport’s ATC tower. It is considered one of the most advanced in the world. I call the left photo – the star of Gardermoen. Hehe. If you happen to see this star as you drive by E6, you are about 2 minutes away by car to my home.
Let me tell you one thing about norwegians, they are renovation maniacs! LOL. Norwegians spend so much money on their homes. And I think I got this disease. Instead of doing something during the easter break, I decided to paint the bedroom, for now. We are intending to do something more later on.
The room is about around 23 square meters with a wall making 2 separate small rooms inside the bedroom. I painted 10 walls. You can just imagine why I do not want to see another paint brush for awhile. It used to be yellow and I painted it Cafe Late (between brown and creme) this time. For those who know me, it would probably be a surprise since I usually choose lively colors. Maybe, I’d change my mind later.
On Easter Sunday, my daughter, Tatyana, and I went to St. Magnus Catholic Church in Lillestrøm. I like this church very much. The size of it gives me a feeling of belonging to the community. It is a small church. The simple and modern architecture and interior design of the church gives me the feeling of serenity.
After the mass, we went to Shiela’s home, a fellow filipino, for Easter Dinner. We were served Pancit, Reindeer Steak, Embotido among others.

BY THE WAY, KIRBY ANN BASKEN WON THE MS. NORWAY TITLE. BELATED HAPPY EASTER TO ALL!!
