For a good number of years I have been searching for 2 things which had disappeared from store shelves altogether. They are regular stuff I assumed will be around forever but vanished just when I wanted to buy them! I’m talking about a 4-peg square laundry hanger (I think it could be discontinued), and an inexpensive Chinese chess game made of paper and wood, the kind that my dad used to teach my brother when we were kids. A majority of chess games on sale now are plastic made — plastic game sheet and wood-like plastic game pieces.
Last weekend I finally found the set I’ve been looking for in Popular, a local bookstore. I’d browsed in this bookstore on numerous occasions but had never seen it before. It must be a new arrival! It’s sold for slightly more than a dollar so some of the finishing touches are not quite perfect, but that’s expected. You know my reason for wanting to own this chess is so as to use the military as props in my blog photos. You shall be seeing them mobilised in one way or an other :)
Spring is my favourite time of the year to get out of our little furnace (island, actually) to experience cool springtime weather and enjoy long daytime elsewhere. However I won’t be able to head out for an escapade, but have to stay put to work and work until…time and budget permits.
Still I’m content just imagining myself hugging cool air, touching and inhaling spring flowers here at my desk. All thanks to this lovely picture of cherry blossoms by Elizabeth Thomas.
An image speaks a thousand words and to all my five senses.
