Ice Sculpting

We don't know how to sculpt nothing. Never learned it in school, nor  in our life thus far. But today we're visiting the ice gallery and a quick practical lesson in ice sculpting is upon us.

First, a demo by the expert.

Everyone tried to follow her closely. But she was very quick and it just looked very easy. Just a few quick hacks, she shaped a square block into a mug, another few shaves produced a handle, and then she hacked it all and changed it into a wine glass, and then finally reshaped into a soup bowl.  She was done in 5 minutes. Errr.

 When she said, 'start', everyone just feverishly hacking away as if we had a clue.

I have no idea what I am doing. The outer plastic glove is slipping, my fingers getting numb and I am not getting any decent shape. I have mug in mind, then I broke the handle, and then.. I don't know.. I distorted it the further I finished  as a cross between a bowl and a jar.

My brother in-law di sebelah, dengan tekun dan bersungguh-sungguhnya membuat cup yang cantik. Tau-tau yang menang bukan dia, tapi anak dia. 

The winners - 1st brother in-law, 2nd mother in-law (caya la!), 3rd niece.

After the hard work, we were brought into a small chamber of Ice World.

Cantiknya...di dalam ini. Berapa lama la dorang mensculpting semua ini.

It's a city.
