    I have been to 2 woody spaces now with my husband and my father. What a wonderful bonding time for us three fully grown adults of various decades in our age, 40s, 50s and close to 70. We were so proud of our joint creations. The first one where I went with my hubby, we fashioned a wonderful table top by modifying a pallet. And what a God-send it is, in our cramped one bed room to have a dining table we can place on our bed since our cramped room has no furniture. It gives us romantic picnic type meals 😀 right on our bed.

    The other object we created was a keyholder along with a delightful time with some seniors for the “happy go lucky” mediacorp filming. Woodworking teacher Kam Poi helped us all learn to create this fun and customizable keyholder where we could select our own drawings for each of the four panels for the keys. It was so much fun and allowed each of my family members to select an image which we thought represented us. Since hubby and I work in the arts, it included an image with singing, conducting, a guitar for my father and a theatrical mask duo for my designer sister 😀

    It was truly a well-used 2 sessions of family bonding and cooperation for all 3 of us. Next time I hope to bring my sister along too. Thank you for your fantastic instruction Mr Kam Poi for the keyholder project. Wonderful idea for a project and simple enough to complete in 4 hours 😀 All of us enjoyed it that day. Oh and the wonderful rural kampung surroundings of GUI is just a cure for all that ails this tired jaded Singaporean soul 😛 who is bored of most shopping centers and endless eating 😀
