24 Jan 2018 – Chinese New Year is upcoming and I am looking forward for a rest week and lots of fun time with family and loved ones. I was also excited to conduct a basic chinese new year ang bao lantern making workshop to a group of staff from National University Hospital in creating two basic lanterns that I hope may inspire them to learn how to make more difficult and challenging designs! The workshop was for two hours but we stayed for another hour to try to finish as much as we can. The participants still found it hard to make and I do agree the craft work would require time and patience to complete a better outcome. Here are some of lanterns made by the participants I had managed to take.
