It was raining cats and dogs today due to the typhoon. The government had announced the off day for all the classes and activities held in the afternoon. I am a foreigner who was really looking forward for the typhoon. How weird I am. However, after raining and strong wind blowing for few days, the ceiling in our room started to get wet and dripping water. I feel regret of my wish, "Mr Typhoon! Please go away!"
Even it was in bad weather, we still carried on our plan to make some art craft.
The wood we used were the leftover wood collected from the beach. These woods can be recycled and they were given a brand new life. According to the elderlies, the best time to collect the woods is after the typhoon bad weather. There is a lot of people take it for granted to grab the best wood like Cypress.
This is the initial material we had-wood, hammer and nails.
This were the art craft from our teacher! They are experts!
After some explanation and demonstration, we had to start doing it by ourselves. I feel so lost when I found that I can't even hold a hammer properly. I am so clumsy. ><
After DIY-ing by myself and with the help of the experts, I had successfully made a wood model. I had been forcing myself to come out with some creative idea. But I found that what we think and what we do is totally a different story. The hippopotamus that I made was initially a horse and the cute elf were a "Pikachu" in my thought.
The art craft produced in the typhoon are up for grab!
I drew all this!
The colour on this little hippo is blue, yellow, red and white. It is exactly the colours of the Malaysia flag.
Then followed by this little elf with the name of "Four Seasons Elf". It looked like an elf after I finish its wooden model so I decided to give him a colourful clothing.
I failed on the autumn part and it looked like forest fire instead of autumn. So I drew a maple leaf as replacement.
Hey! Boys and girls from Hsinchu Forest Office, this is the gift from us, Luodong Forest Office! Is it special?
