In December we had a little pre-Christmas party at my place. We taught Kurumi to bake finnish Christmas pastries. We put plum and apple jams to the pastries. That was the first time Kurumi made christmas pastries and I think she was very good at it!
A month before this meeting Kurumi taught us to make Japanese food. That means both of these meetings were very similar to each other. Only difference was that a month before this meeting I was learning and now I was teaching. The most challenging thing in teaching was English and especially vocabulary. Luckily Eetu helped me if I didn’t know some words in English!
Of course we had gingerbreads and glogg, too!
When we were finished eating we started to study colors (both in Japanese and Finnish). Before this meeting only color I knew in Japanese was shiro (which means white). During this meeting I learnt eleven more!
On December 4, Mari and Joonas and I participated in pre-Christmas party held in tamko office. We intended to gather in the tamko office around 17:00, and I left the house. But I got on the No.25 bus for some reason, and arrived at Prizma when I noticed it. Yes, I got on wrong bus when I changed a bus. I was what stupid! I could choice that I did shopping, but I came back to the main street hastily and got on an regular bus, because I passed the meeting time.
Anyway, I got at tamko office around 18:30, and Mari and Joonas have already arrived there. Then, Germany and Japanese friends gather, too. So firstly, we played cards in all the member.
I was very happy that I could eat some snack or juice during we played cards.
The game that we played first is called ‘murder game’. I was taught it from Joonas, recently, it’s a popular among me. This game’s rule is that first the using cards is K, Q, J and other number cards (1,2,3,and so on), and also means that “K = police, Q = spy, J = murder, and other number cards = citizen”. A person who is a narrator distributes one card to all the members. And finally if several some people could find out ‘’murder”, the entire member except the murder are winner. But if they couldn’t find out the murder or police is killed by murder, murder is winner. It is very strategic game because they don’t know who has which cards each other and can tell a lie. So that’s so interesting!!!
The most of that day, we played cards. I enjoyed the pre-Christmas party because we could have chat not only usual partners but other partners.
P.S. The Hungarian traditional liquor was very strong. But it was so delicious!!
