The thing about having an ethnic community is the awesome chance of seeing everybody (old and new), speaking our own language (even though I am pretty terrible at it), and having some much-missed cuisine from the motherland.
Case in point: our Easter Mass and celebration this past Sunday.
Twice a year, during Easter and Christmas, the UKI is brimming with Indonesian Catholics from all over the Greater Toronto Area. This past Sunday, as per the usual custom, I made the rare pilgrimage to go down to St. Anselm’s Church at Leaside to celebrate Easter with my Indonesian homies. Afterwards, I saw Inez who asked me if I could recommend places to see in New York City.
Amazing! I LOVE giving travel suggestions and telling people about places I’ve visited.
