Good Friday is upon us, and that means Easter is, too. The three-day weekend has long been associated with brunches and egg hunting. But why does the date change every year? Easter can fall easily anytime from March to May. That’s because it has been deemed a “moveable feast”, and is set for the Sunday following the first full moon of Spring.

In any case, we’re just glad for the respite after working hard for a quarter of a year. Yes, we are already three months into 2018. Unfortunately for the rest of this year, we won’t be able to Uber our way around town anymore. The recent acquisition of the ride-sharing company’s Southeast Asian arm by local rival Grab has been the talk of the town this whole week. At least we’ll still get to use the app until 8 April.

That’s not all the news that took place. Keep scrolling for some of this week’s best stories from the Lifestyle Asia team.
