Japanese Day Event

Last 2 weeks back there was this event in a friend's Church. It's about getting to know the culture of the Japanese and some of its little ceremonies that they have over there. This event is held in New Life Center... Quite a nice building if I'd say so myself.

It's quite a nice place, Not very hard to find. No doubt yes I've made a few wrong turns here and there but it ain't so hard! Used to be some sort of industrial building as the insides are pretty huge. Not to mention there's loads of industrial buildings surrounding it.

OK First lesson is to learn how to do some origami. Nothing fancy, We just ended up folding up balls. And guess what, We had those balls we made look like this. Sorry though for the prop arrangement. LOL It looked so wrong....

Next lesson is a demonstration of how to make Sushi! Yumm Yumm... His skills look good but then again I'd still prefer Genki for now. LOL His skills though may look good but still an amateur. Sorry mate didn't mean to diss you but it's a good attempt my friend.

The Whole group plus the Tapir in Green. I know I know, you guys would probably think that I'm rude giving people names and so on. But just so you know, They called themselves that. Don't ask my why, It just happens...and they called me a dog and roach too... *sweat*

Later on was dinner time! each of us had a bento box served with delicious Japanese food. We have Teriyaki Chicken, Potato Salad, Egg, Salmon Sashimi and a Ham roll thingie!

Over all the whole event was a good one. Learned some Japanese culture. Well enough to be a half Japanese guy! Half only People! half only! Later we went home feeling pretty much satisfied yet tired. Well it's a good sunday well spent :P
