Cook'N Sew Workshop in Tokyo! {Photos}

Hello friends,

I am finally able to share with you the photos of the first workshop held in Tokyo! Ruth Tan of The Little Happy Shop was my guest instructor and she conducted a brilliant workshop last Thursday at my home. Participants were introduced to the Peranakan culture, they learnt how to cook babi pongteh - a traditional nyonya dish, and decorated a tote bag with batik fabrics. As time went by the entire room started to smell heavenly and it got more difficult to concentrate on the hand-sewing... At last we shared a delicious lunch, tasting for the first time the flavorful babi pongteh dish!

Each participant came up with her own color/ fabric combination, it was beautiful!

I hope everyone enjoyed the experience, it was certainly memorable to have a guest instructor from Singapore share part of her cultural background with all of us.

Thank you so much Ruth, it's always a pleasure to work with you!

PS: Registration will soon be open for the next workshop. This time we will play with beads and felt... Stay tuned and save the date: February 26, 2013.

PPS: If you are based in Singapore, Ruth is organizing many workshops so please go check out this page {here} if you are interested in participating.
