"This time I will teach foreign friends to model a giant panda that is unique to China." Tan Xianhua showed foreign students the way to prepared the dough, the way to make the panda's body, eyes, feet, and bamboo leaves, in the meantime corrected their poses. In about 20 minutes, under the guidance of Tan Xianhua, foreign students made a cute and lovely panda enjoying a bamboo.
