Peranakan tea treats

As a volunteer with a local theatre group, I had to put up a Nyonya spread of Kim Choo goodies before every show of Emily the Musical. Just a few days before the event, I had to uncover all the plates, crockery and Peranakan ware that I have stashed under all the beds in my house, high up in the kitchen cabinets and more. I used to have an intense passion to collect kitchen and serving ware over the years but this has since cooled down when I ran out of space. Getting reacquainted with my old "treasures" and realizing that they have a functional purpose after all made me feel good.  Love the experience of styling the food and the table for a visual treat, not to mention that the goodies on the serving ware were delectably tasty.
