The Copper Pots....


These are the a copper pots that I inherited from my father. He had numbers of it in various sizes for cooking at the restaurant or at Kenduri. At that time, it was difficult to get such pots in Malaya so he got his friends from Kerala to bring a few and this is the smallest in size. When the restaurant was closed my younger brother, who managed the restaurant after the demised of our father took it to his house and kept it in his store. I went to have a look and it was all blacked with soothes after many years of uses for cooking. I told my brother to let me have two of the smallest and he agreed.  I then took it to my house in Kuala Lumpur. Both were used for decoration. When the kids got their own house, I decided to give both to them, sort of passing down of an inheritance that is priceless. Once belong to their grandfather. A part of our family history. 


Have a nice day.

Salam Pak Idrus. Apa khabar?

That's a nice copper pot and it's worth preserving.

My mother, who used to do catering for family weddings many years ago, also have a few periuk and other cooking utensils which are now gathering dust in the store. But nothing nice enough for me to put on display, heheh...

Take care, sir..

Oldstock,

Thanks for the visit and sharing your thoughts on the subject of this posting. Well, I love the work of art so I decided to keep it in the family. Thus, I now give it to my kids and it's been displayed in their home. Surely in the many of your mom's pots and pan there are some that worth cleaning up and display. Nice Sir is subjective, so do go and have a look and take out, shine it and put it on display. Who knows, it may glow in a new environment.

Have a nice day.
