Have you ever imagined a small Totoro living in your room? I have, and I usually buy more and more plush toys to bring back to my room. However, I now have a live-one!! Well actually, it's a moss ball.
你是否曾想像,自己的房間能有小豆豆龍呢?我有,還因此買了一堆絨毛玩具放著。然而,現在我有"活著"的一隻!好吧,其實是苔蘚球。

In the beginning, we met the former pro-wrestler. He was the teacher who repeated again and again, "softly and gently."
一開始,我們與前相撲選手見面,他是苔蘚球製作的講者,不斷重複著:"要輕輕地、柔柔地。"

After putting on his fighting-gear -  oh no, his lovely work beanie! - he taught us how to make a moss ball, step by step. The funnies thing was that he managed to catch the camera each time with his brilliant prepared facial expression and poses. (LOL)
穿上戰鬥裝...呃,是工作帽後,老師開始一步一步地教我們;而且有趣的是,只要鏡頭一對到老師,他馬上就會擺好凶狠表情。(大笑)

Firstly, we picked a plant which we wanted to make the centre of our moss ball. Then, we softly and gently made the ball around it, twice. Finally, the moss Totoro was finished! Take another look... aren't they cute!
首先,先挑選苔蘚球的植物;然後,輕柔地揉捏成球狀;最後,苔癬豆豆龍就大功告成啦。
超    級    可    愛    的    啦!

Unfortunately, I won't be allowed for to bring it back to Taiwan. So, I will cherish the rest of our time. (HUG)
不幸地,因為海關規定,苔蘚球帶不回台灣;所以,我會好好把握和我苔蘚球的相處時光!(抱)

In addition to the moss ball, there is one more DIY activity: the gourd lamp. Due to the time limit, I didn't make it, but I really want to try it next time!
除了苔蘚球,還有葫蘆燈可以製作;因為時間沒辦法做,希望下次去的時候能帶一個回來!
