Choices of teak aplenty...filled to the brim
I though this “woody” business had ended after he sat for the finals of that paper at the end of the semester. Dah score dapat good grades tu habis lah kan. But tidak, that wasn’t the case. The attraction and fascination towards wood kept flaming in him even till present. When we first started looking for furniture before we moved into our house way back in the early 90s, most of the places we went to were the “woody” joints. And with that brief intro, we have now accumulated quite a number of wood pieces in the house.
My first piece was a wood display cabinet, bought just after we moved into our home. I remember rummaging through this antique furniture shop in Subang. After sometime of look see look see, I finally settled with a Merbau piece of orange-brown shade with simple floral carvings on the both sides. Unfortunately, the antique shop where I got it from closed sometime back, but I must say the piece still stands proud in our living room. Relatively not long after the Merbau cabinet, we got a dining set which was made from rosewood. Similarly, this set has become one of my favourite purchases. Even after having had it for more than 15 years, it looks very much like how we first brought it home. The six seater may have become somewhat small for our growing family. We ought to consider getting a bigger set but I simply don’t want to part with it just yet.
What's your fancy? Wall mirror??
And today, we went “wood” hunting again. A couple of weeks back, we stumbled upon this shop which sells teak furniture somewhere in Sunway. The shop, well more like a warehouse I should say, had like so many pieces of teak, mahogany, acacia wood furniture. Most of the furniture are simple in its design, nothing too gaudy nor too complicated and so very much to my liking. How lah to resist???
Bayar time... Gesek (swipe) aja Pak...encouraged the shop owner
So what was the outcome (damage pun iyer jugak) from the hunt?? Heh..heh…a mature coloured teak console cabinet. Its price was pretty reasonable and the shop will deliver tomorrow evening. In the meantime, I’d do some clearing up of the space where the cabinet is to be positioned. Hai…bercabinet baru lah pulak saya Raya ni nampak nyer ;-)
