Its Tuesday again and I am sharing more treasures from my visit to Ho Yan Hor museum. These snapshots were taken in the kitchen. To read about my previous post, click here.
These are granite grinders.
From left to right. A granite pounder and 2 herbal clay pots. The centre one on a charcoal stove and the one on the right on a wood burning stove.
Old biscuits tins. Only the Jacob & Co biscuit tin on the right is familiar to me.
All these containers are not familiar to me.
One item I recognize! The Cadbury chocolate tin.
I recognized the Nestum tin in the centre and the Farley's baby food tin.
An enamel kettle on a hanger. A herbal clay pot and a kuali with cover on wood burning stove.
I remembered we were using a similar stove during my younger days.
More treasure kept here.
We had similar "meat safe" those days. Even without the refrigerator, food those days do not go bad so fast.
An antique weighing machine on top of the meat safe.
Those days, all our doors are quite similar to the one above. Some have 1 wooden latch, some have 2 or more wooden latches.

The following photos are for joining & Flower Wednesday.
Though these are just yellow Croton leaves, they can be as beautiful and colourful as some flowers.
Took a snapshot of a multi layered hibiscus flower next to a shop. I snapped this photo under the glaring midday sun.
This one looks like a rose.
The hibiscus flower belonged to this hibiscus bush.
Beware of false teachers who come disguised as harmless
sheep, but are wolves and will tear you apart.
You can detect them by the way they act,
just as you can identify a tree by its fruit. You need never
confuse grapevines with thorn bushes of figs with thistles.
(Matthew 7:15-16, The Living Bible-TLB)
