Even more bamboos

OK, this is the last one on bamboos...... for the time being ;-)
This is a display at an exhibition and I just want to show you some Chinese bamboo furniture. It is not really popular in HK and is probably a thing of the older days; but the game you see here, ie, Mahjong, is eternal to most Chinese. I like the game though I don't play often (the last time was a year ago in San Diego)!
PS. Thanks to those who had asked, the typhoon brought no major damage to HK!

I love to learn. Wasn't there a book (and a movie)about it?
Lisi, for some reason the loading of your page takes a loooong time and i can only see today's picture. That's really a shame coz i have been away for some weeks and wanted to catch up on Hong Kong :)

No, I was too hasty.
When i scroll all the way down i can see the other pictures. There is a huge gap between today and the days before.
Thought you'd wanted to know.

I have set my screen resolution to 1024 x 768 and maximized the window size: lisi's blog shows perfectly.

lisi, thank you for sizing your portrait photographs so they are displayed properly with the above resolution. By properly, I mean that I do not have to scroll to see the full portrait picture. In some other DP sites, I have to scroll or open the photograph is a new window to see the full picture. I hope this comment helps!

Thanks for your great blog - Brian.

Hi Lisi:

That furniture ie really nice, but I understand wants something "modern" in their living room or dinning room. I think natural stuff never lose style.

Mahjong looks like domino :)

Brian, thanks!

Ed, will you also think of me when you see lotus? ;-)

About twenty years ago.

Bamboo is such a versatile strong natural material. Yes I too loved Mah jong as a child. I must soon learn again and teach my own kids.

Furnitures from bamboo are strong and interesting style. Mahjong looks like domino. I used to play domino with my dad, long long time ago.

great capture.

 

Blogger Lisi said ... (August 07, 2006 7:10 PM) : 

mmm...it's exciting to know that Mark plays Mahjong, wouldn't it be nice to play Mahjong in South of France when I travel there? And John as well...one more potential player ;-)

Thanks everyone for dropping by. If you have problem with loading the photos like Dutchi did, please let me.

;-)
