New dishes, anyone?

Wife to husband: "Honey, I invited some friends home for supper."
"Are you crazy? All the dishes are dirty!"
"I know that."
"Then why did you invite friends for supper?"
"Because the poor gals are thinking about getting married."

I walked past a closing down sale in Wanchai yesterday. Does anybody need new dishes?

Me first! I spotted the fish in this photo. I'll let Lisi say where it is though. Loved the joke Lisi.

Funny :)

I have a question, why is the colour blue so much used for that kind of things?

Hi lisi,

I do but don't know if they are cheap or expensive.

Hi Eric, did you know there's a blue one somewhere? :-)

Amande, I think when they started making this hundreds of years ago, they had materials which made this shade of blue and then it got very famous so it became a standard.

Bob, they are very cheap, I'm thinking of going back to get the fish dish, HK$6 is Euro0.70

What a sense of humor. :)

I was going to say was that these dish patterns remind me of a few tea sets I was looking at last time I was in San Francisco's Chinatown. I really like Asian dishes. If ever I go out your way, I definitely want to look around in that shop.

I'm glad I came across your site, Lisi. Have you up in my links.
