Chinese New Year CRAFTnival (25th Jan)

This weekend, i didn't attend church as last Sun of every month, there's a free Zumba at Jurong Green Community Centre from 7.45am to 8.45am and i wanted to attend it.  But heard that next month, there won't be any due to Chinese New Year and from Mar onwards, it will be on every 3th Sun of the month.

After the Zumba class, i went to have my breakfast at the coffeeshop opposite the Community Centre and there's a poster on the wall promoting about this Chinese New Year CRAFTnival, so thought of going to take a look.


Not sure where is the venue, but it's quite near the coffeeshop where i had my breakfast as within short walking distance, i saw the tentage.


The event is from 9.30am to 11.30am


They have angbao lantern making, i also went to learn how to make it.  Ask the lady if they do conduct class for it, but the lady mention that as CNY is approaching, they come up with this event to teach it.


The nicely made angbao lantern that has been pre-made by the committees. 


There's also CNY Greetings Calligraphy


They also teaches CNY Greetings Card


Some may wish to write CNY greeting on a piece of card that is provided and then it's hang in the space provided.
