The mystery (un)folds

Considering my admiration for the Japanese in general, this week's video shows a quick and amazing method of folding a T-shirt. Though the voiceover is in Japanese, you don't really need any explanation. Just observe closely. When I first saw it, I refused to believe it was possible. Kinda looked like a magic trick to me. But I tried it, and it's totally totally amazing!

Man, you're SO like Viv in that sense! He's the official folding guy in our household! :)

Shabash! :D

#Garam Bheja Fry,
Arre t-shirt ke saath kushti thode na karna hai! :P

Try a few times, it's not as hard as it looks.

Thisisme said...

yeayyyy..i did it..damn simple :)

Iday said...

We are the new age men - we "really" believe in load sharing. You wash, we fold :)

And we conveniently forget the fact that a certain something called washing machine simplifies your job to a great extent and also the fact that folding is still done by hand, like it has been done over the centuries :)

Sakshi said...

I wanna do that. To me a spin in the dryer gets all wrinkles out is the next best thing since slcied bread. Now if I learn to do that, I might actually be able to buy more clothes ;)
