Hello friends!! How was your weekend? I went window shopping:) Actually since we moved into our apartment here in HongKong , we have been checking out furniture and decor shops almost every weekend.. I find HongKong to be a interior designers delight!! I am thinking of doing a post later on the fantastic decor shops here..

Kept some silverware, a rattan holder for remotes/pens/notepads.. Used my maroon and golden canvas paintings as coasters..
This rose flower scented candle is in a handmade jar..and that's a satay fan.. According to Wikipedia it is a "Fan being used to fire-up the coal in a grill used to make satay." I use it to fan myself when it is hot outside like a coal grill:)
This black leather cube was always in our foyer room/entry area in all our previous homes but here it has found a new role..
