We had a successful Fun Fur Day event last weekend with a total of 12 attendees!
|L-R: Andrey. Anna, Wayne, Chio, Eileen, Esther, Evelyn, Paula, Winnie, Su Ling, Ivy and Philip|
This time, we have special guests - Anna Filatova and Andrey Blokhin from Russia! To our surprise, their new born son Peter who is just 7 months old joined our gathering!
We were all excited to meet them again as the last time we met was more than 2 years ago! The dinner was held in Keisuke Tokyo, a ramen restaurant. We were grateful to have a private room for our gathering!
We were all surprised and excited when we saw Peter. He has a pair of beautiful eyes and everyone couldn't stop looking at him. Very soon, Peter was passed around for everyone to have a closer look. Peter was well behaved and comfortable being with strangers as he was giggling the whole time.

Esther also introduced her relative, Eileen Tan, to the group. Eileen specialises in crochet and knitting, showing us some of her beautiful bears and wearable art.

We were also pleased to welcome Evelyn back to our gathering as she was overseas for over 6 months!
Anna told us that our group's skill in Bear making has improved since the last time we met. Although she wasn't in Singapore with us, she has been following us closely and saw improvements of our works through social media. We were also delighted that she agreed to be the judge for our Christmas Bear Competition in 2017.

After dinner, we decided to have coffee at Cedele Bakery, which is around the vicinity. We sat down to have coffee and cakes, mingling and catching up with each other.
Su Ling and Ivy, who are Anna's collectors, brought some of Anna's bears to take a group photo together with Anna. We posed for pictures and at then the end of it all, took a group photo.

At 10pm, we bid goodbye our dear friends and we hope to meet Anna and Andrey in Singapore again. Who knows, perhaps we might visit them in Russia instead!
