Easter 2017 Onboard Ardea

Hej och glad påsk allihopa!!! Today we are celebrating “Påskafton” or the evening before Easter Sunday here in Falkenberg, Sweden.
It has been over a week now since we arrive here at Falk Varv. Our home, M.T. Ardea is doing it 5th-year major drydock.

Aside from Easter, I will remember this day as my 1st day off since I started working at sea. I can’t thank enough our Superintendent, Sarah, for giving me this chance to have a break.
I think companies should consider hiring more female Superintendent, they prepare a good plan, handle multi-tasking pretty well and last but not least, they have a motherly instinct in taking care of their crew.

A few days ago, Sarah informs me of her plan for “Påskafton”- Saturday’s dinner. So I prepare just enough meal for lunch for Sarah is bringing a dinner buffet. Lucky me, I was free to go ashore and stroll the centrum of Falkenberg.
I was video calling with my family back in the Philippines for them to join my stroll. It was an experience but the weather is a bit lousy, cold and wet.

I bought a pair of leather winter gloves, a bunch of new working socks and some make-up set for my eldest daughter. Then I head back home to Ardea, which only took me 14 minutes from ICA Kvantum, Falkenberg.

I arrive just a few seconds before 16:30. Just in time to prepare the foods that Sarah had brought us for dinner. She ordered for 30pax, which is more than enough for us 20 persons.

I can’t say the names of all the foods but all of them are really good taste, and that what really matters.
