My Christmas Lantern

Philippines (Made in December 2010)

During Christmas, I always make one kind of Christmas lantern or parol. I learned the design from carpenter-relative  who made the house of my uncle and aunt in Olongapo City.

Australia (Made in July 2010)

It is a challenge to make the frame but more so to wrap it. It is easier to make the frame in the Philippines because bamboo sticks are abundant. But in Australia, I need to tie in two BBQ sticks to get the desired length.
