Plates of Joy II

One of the earliest pieces I wrote when I first started blogging three years ago was "Plates of Joy" (here), about my hobby of plate collecting - decorative plates, that is. Recently the ex and wife went on an Iberian holiday and thoughtfully brought home a ceramic plate of Madrid (pix above) for yours truly. Muchas gracias, Senor Ex!



This one from Peru is a real stunner; it's made of wood and painted with motif depicting the Aztec culture. It's a gift from Irene, a fellow Royal Lake Club member, who went on a two-week jaunt of Latin America last year. A small wooden vase of similar design accompanied the plate. Much appreciated, Irene!


This is a gift from journalist Fuzz (colleague of my two kids in the Press), who went traipsing around Eastern Europe last year. Fuzz actually presented me with two; one from Croatia and the other from Warsaw. Both are equally beautiful. Dzienkuje, Fuzz! (Pronounced 'jenn-koo-yeh', that's "thank you" in Polish).

Nice hobby...and senang kami nak belikan cendera hati ...tak yah fikir...hehehe.

My ex boss di Texas Instruments dulu, seorang american lady di Texas USA, collect Miniature frogs...but to make it to her show case, kena frog yang cantik2 dan unik2...i contributed one-pair of mating frogs, and she proudly included mine in the center shelf.
