Yes, probably...but not antiques. Wiki said the term "antique" is applicable to objects more than 100 years old. I don't have any antique stuff. I can't afford them, really. :P
But I do love old stuff.
While family & friends (and people in general) are into the newest and trendiest phones, cameras or other gadgets...I seem to be taking so many steps behind, and seem to really like old stuff. Actually, I've always liked old stuff.
When I just got married, I used my parents' old dining set for my house...wooden country-style table and chairs that my parents bought in 1984, when I was 12. A few years ago the wear and tear became worse and we had to discard the set *yes I am sort of kicking myself now apasal lah dulu malas nak perbetulkan dining set tu*
When I went to Kota Kinabalu for BIM2012, I loved the old brass items which were sold at the morning Sunday market. Tapi mahal sangat la pulak. Recently, I asked my grandmother if she still has her old brass iron..yang guna arang tu.
"Entah la mano Nenek simpan..dah pindah rumah ni..mano poei entah. Nenek raso ado anak-anak Nenek dah ambik dah tu."
Baru cucu nak mengecek :P
Anyway, baru-baru ni berjaya jumpa mangkuk tingkat yang dicari-cari! Yayy for the world wide web!
|I even asked my Aina my running buddy to go ask her nenek if she wants to sell me one! Buat masa ni, letak (sebagai hiasan) kat dapur.|
|Can you spot which one is the 'vintage item'? I got it online also. I know it doesn't suit well here..takpelah, nanti-nanti cari tempat lebih sesuai.|
|As seen before somewhere in this blog, the nearly-30-years-old brass candle stand. Sampai dah jarang nak kilatkan dah :P|
|The also nearly-30-years-old brass urn. My mom lost the cover, and 'corong tuang air' & handle dah tercabut. I think it's somewhere in my house still, bila nak bawak peteri, entahlah.|
|The fan is not an oldie, baru 3 tahun kot..design memang macam tu. Downside - tak boleh pusing kiri kanan. Buluh-buluh tu I beli kat kedai tahun ni, bukan ambik kat hutan mana-mana pun.|
|I think this is more than 30 years old. It's like a leather notebook cover. Keras, dalam ada lining.|
I have one more oldies/vintage item that I have my eyes on. Tapi budget takde so nanti je la...
