A week ago I celebrated my mom's birthday.
Got her a present during my stay over Xmas in Singapore from Takashimaya.
Last year I got her a bouquet of CASH.
Yes cash. As in roses made of money.
Two years ago, it was flowers made of RM1 notes.
Then last, I decided to upgrade my present, pooling money with my brother, to RM10 notes flower.
So this year I decided to give her something different.
My mom is a lover for Bone China.
Despite its name, bone china is British made porcelain crockeries.
But the thing is she doesn't own any. Her reasons for it was that when she was younger, she couldn't afford them. And now I think she prefers to save the money than to spend on unnecessary items.
Old Country Rose from Royal Albert
So when I went to Singapore, I decided to scout these cups out.
Two of the more well known Bone China brands are Royal Doulton (owned by the father) and Royal Albert (then the son).
However, when Old Country Roses design was launched 1962, it became one of the biggest hit and till date most popular English bone china design.
And seeing that my mom loves big red roses. I decided to get some of these. In the end, I brought home two sets of cups and saucers, and a mini milk jug. :D
Why all the way to Singapore? Because it's bloody expensive to buy it in Malaysia. One cup and saucer set can easily cost more than RM300, whereas you can get half that price in Singapore. A teapot can cost between RM2~300 after conversion in Singapore.
Just imagine, how would would this table cost?
But even with just a normal set of saucer and plates, sipping afternoon tea with some of these exclusive bone china. Fuu wa... Damn posh feel.
I got my experience sipping afternoon tea in some of these 22k gold rimmed teacups one day at Angelic, which was how I got to know about this particular bone china.
The setting of this cafe was SO nice I could just die! I was already wishing my future living room to be set up something like this.
Don't I look damn comfy?
Did a bit of camwhore while I was there.
Love the gold santa! was there during xmas
I wanna go back to Angelic.
