So I’m a little late with this post as Easter Sunday was already a week ago today, but we had such an amazing time last Monday at the Yummy Mummies play date. This is the first time I have celebrated Easter in Jakarta in the six years I have been here, and this year I saw only one small Lindt easter egg in the supermarket for a whopping Rp 200,000! At such ridiculous prices and so little on offer there’s never a chance to recreate the Easters celebrated back home, where we all ended up in chocolate induced comas before the day was out.
The gorgeous Jacintha hosted the catch up in the gardens of her apartment at Veranda in Cipete and what a stunning oasis this place is! Lush green lawns and trees, beautiful swimming pools and turtles, a playground and so much space for the kids to run around. I never knew such a precious gem existed in this city and it’s easy to forget where you are as it’s so peaceful and charming inside the compound gates.
There was a huge spread of Easter themed delicious food and the kids had fun decorating hard boiled eggs and Easter shaped cookies, before the highlight of the day which was an Easter Egg hunt in the gorgeous gardens. This was a chocolate free Easter catch up and was so much fun for the kids, as they collected beautifully decorated hard boiled and also plastic eggs in their sweet little baskets.
A huge thank you to Jacintha for hosting and to all the mummies for the delicious spread of food and fun catch up, and for bringing the Easter spirit to Jakarta for the kids… I’m still having to hide Samudra’s plastic eggs around the house for him to find!
