Japanese Language Festival (Day 2: #1 ふろしきFuroshiki)

JFest's day 2 is exciting as we have chosen 3 workshops to learn some new cultural crafts of Japan :D And the best part is the sensei are Japanese, so it's time to communicate in simple Japanese language.

#1 ふろしきFuroshiki (Japanese handkerchief wrapping)
If you're a fans of Japanese movies, you'll see a lot of furoshiki craft. They like to wrap their bottles, lunch boxes, presents, etc with colourful and pretty cloths. 

In the furoshiki class, sensei taught us to use the おおきい(big) or ちいさい(small) to wrap bottles, box and ball respectively. 
Sensei is teaching us to tie knots, it's quite easy, just like what we learnt from scout haha
Wrapped lunch box (more accurately, tissue box lol) 
 Our かわいsensei is teaching us to wrap 2 bottles together :)
Learning.. so concentrate.. am a good student haha. 
Ta-da! Cute right??? 
This one is single bottle, and hand-carry one :D 
I personally love this very much.. you can put a round object inside and carry it! I wanna put in watermelon :D very convenient leh.. can take to picnic ma haha.
Group photo with sensei :) She is really polite and cute! しんせつです。そして、かわいせんせいです。(dunno correct or not lol)
