JY's fascination with Orang Asli craft prompted me to go for this. This year we have been doing a lot of activities related to Orang Asli.
There were a few stalls selling handicraft items. JY went from stall to stall looking at rings and bracelets but she decided against getting any.
Han went"So smooth!" as he felt the wood carving.
The programme for the next few weeks. Got this from Gerai OA's Facebook posting -too bad Gerai OA wasn't around, I have never got the chance to visit their stall and their collection of beads.
Walking into the exhibition hall, we noticed a man sitting in a shack. We gathered around him as he carved out a letter opener. After a while, he asked if the kids wanted to try it out. For sure!
JY using a mallet and chisel on the soon to be 'tornado' sculpture.
Fai using the mallet as the very patient woodcarver held on to the chisel.
Fai holding on to the tree trunk as JY chiselled away.
JY trying her hands at weaving. She said it was very complicated. Nipah leaves was used.
We all had a go at this. The boys were told to blow HARD. They couldn't and their darts bounced off the target board.
I got 10 points.
