I was in the kitchen when Mr Y came back from work yesterday evening. As Mandarin is the “official” language in our apartment, I was a little surprise to hear Mr Y’s first words were in English: “oh, crap!” I rushed out of the kitchen to see what’s wrong and soon realized what he said was “oh, crab!” because he saw the crab I made during the day occupying the place for his laptop.
Obviously, the crab is still no in a good shape. I just tried to consume some left-over magazine strips. The strips I used were not long enough so that one of the claws is shorter than the other. In fact, both claws should be a little bigger. The other legs don’t look so right either. Anyhow, Mr Y can recognize it without any hints, so I consider this project not a failure. This model is one of the traditional ones for leaf weaving. I will certainly try some more with paper in the future. I am also thinking of some Chinese paintings, if I can find necessary materials
