The Egg-Related Thought Process Every Expat in Singapore goes through in the run up to Easter. Every. Single. Year.

It’s Good Friday! Time to pour yourself a…. Oh wait. Maybe not, all things considered. And even if you’re not religiously inclined, best to keep a clear head, as you’re going to need all your wits about you if you plan on securing some Easter Eggs tomorrow….

Here’s our Friday List (of sorts):

THE EGG-RELATED THOUGHT PROCESS EVERY EXPAT IN SINGAPORE GOES THROUGH IN THE RUN UP TO EASTER. EVERY. SINGLE. YEAR.

Step 1 (A month before Easter): Oooh! Easter eggs! I must buy some. When is Easter again? Oh, ages away. I’ll buy some next week.

Step 2 (Three weeks before Easter): Ooh! There are those eggs again. Where are the Smarties ones? Huh. All gone. Still – loads of others. And loads of time. I’ll get them next week.

Step 3 (Two weeks before Easter): Golly – where have all the Easter eggs gone? Oh, PHEW, *there* they are. Wait – those are all pretty expensive. $25 for a chocolate shell? I don’t like my children *that* much, thank you very much. Still, loads of time to find the cheaper ones.

Step 4 (Easter Monday): FORTY FIVE DOLLARS FOR ONE MEASLEY EGG???? I’ll take my custom elsewhere, thank you very much.

Step 5 (Good Friday): “Good morning lovely RSEW Ladies! Has anyone seen ANY Easter Eggs anywhere on the island? Any at all. Will pay ANY PRICE.”

Happy Easter Weekend, y’all! And remember – a hard boiled egg served with a Kit Kat and a smile is all anyone needs this Sunday…
