This time we decided to go to the pre-Christmas event organized by Tamko, where we could bake the traditional Finnish pastries called Joulutorttu! (I’m not sure whether the spelling is right or not.) We met at Tamko and started our baking! Firstly, we shaped the materials into square and did them into windmill. Then we added the delicious jam, but for me it’s a little bit sour.
While waiting for baking, we talked a lot about the Christmas food in different countries. In China, we usually do not celebrate Christmas, so we don’t have traditional food. Because Christmas is not an official festival for us, and the Spring Festival is the most important one. And we also talked about karaoke, because we noticed that in Finland we didn’t see it. But we do like karaoke in festivals’ time. If we have chance, I really want to go there together with them!
Then we learned about how to say months in both Chinese and German. It was an interesting time with friends!
