(Left)Old Fashion Medicine Brewer . (Right)Old Fashion Stove & Kitchen ChopBoard.



Had no problems with this week's PhotoHunt theme, since there are so many old fashion items hanging around my house.

That old fashion car belongs to someone's grandpa in DD's school. The sounds of the engine - imagine Ferari with a broken exhaust pipe! *shudders*

The weighing scale goes back to my grandparents time. We have that in our living room as display now. Should I consider that as Family Heirloom?

The medicine brewer is still used currently for brewing smelly chinese herbal medicine. No joke! It's really stinko!

The chop board is still around for chopping meat. The Man uses it,saying the plastic ones I got from Ikea are too "light" in weight. *Roll.My.Eyes*

The old stove brings memories to my late nanny. She use to boil really good chinese soups with it. Now it's an white elephant hiding in a corner of our kitchen.

Theodwyn said...

Nice pictures! That old car... sounds dreadful! should refurbish it and keep it as an antique, it'll fetch a good price later. That choping board makes me smile. There're several in my house which we still use.

Larawannabe said...

i like the classic look on the old-fashion car, but not the sound of its engine please ;) i've seen the old-fashion weighing scale at this sensei shop near where i live. i think all sensei shops have one. the old-fashion medicine brewer was last seen used by my late granny to brew jamu for my mom and aunt during confinement. and she brew it over that old fashion stove you have. lol.

thanks for visiting mine :D

the teach said...

Love seeing these really old-fashioned items, nap! Thanks for sharing!

JesieBlogJourney said...

Maybe the old fashioned car is worth a lot. I have used the stove, chopping board and brewing pot. I don't remember the weighing scale. Things that are old fashioned become collectibles and may be worth a lot of money in the U.S. In M'sia, I threw anything less efficient away and go for the fast speed appliances instead. I wish I have kept them.

Thanks for visiting mine. I have replied to your question on the price too.

Happy photo hunting.

Mark said...
