Two days ago I haul my kitchen cabinet to organize things. If you love cooking I know you will agree that it is inspiring when you have cute or pretty accessories to match with it. I have this fond of buying kitchen accessories and I make sure that all of them are properly put into place where I can use them more. I have cabinet shortage too so some of my kitchen stuff are still in the box, waiting to have a proper storage. While sorting and cleaning I saw this airpot / thermos of ours that I can't remember when was the last time I ever use. For now I currently using a microwave and electric kettle. To help lower the electric cost, I decided to dust it off and started using again.
|Funny scenario about this is that the morning my two sons tried using this, they ask me how. OMG what do I do that they did'nt know how to use old fashion thermos. So I think I will use them more now for them to educate.|
To tell you honestly I have this awkward feeling of buying second hand stuff or what you call vintage pieces. Maybe due to culture that I am adopt into. Added that my parents is not also fond of vintage most especially my father who is a half chinese.But I have this side of me who wants old pieces and as what you called old soul. I remember myself seeing my mother using a charcoal heated iron and enjoying doing so until I am on my teenage years.For me it is classic and a part of my childhood.
|I can say I am an expert using it and really enjoy doing so. I think that's the magic when you are raise in a rural area. You know more about old fashion things- I mean hands on.|
Another is using cast iron casserole. My father is a good cook and I remember our memories mostly in the kitchen part of the house. I am his kitchen helper and his marketer too and for that I know he is a great influence for me to love cooking and to enjoy going to the market.
|I remember cooking our rice in this kind. Now my kids only know using rice cooker :(|
These two are my great childhood memories. I think a part of my life. The problem is they are found nowhere in our house now. I know I can purchase cast iron casserole in the market nowadays. But for the charcoal iron, lucky me in this part. I know I can only have them when I purchase them on a vintage shop. The iron is not for daily usage though..duhh hahaha! I think I will make it as an artwork. If I have the chance to go back to the Province I ask some relative if they have this kind still but if not I think I will break my awkwardness and embrace buying on a vintage shop. What do you think?
