the dog wanted to get a share of what was happening in the house hence his snout had found a good resting place. he got super excited with uncle kam around and would climb all over him. and the dog barked when we put him on the chain....it only happened when uncle kam came. i think the dog was looking for uncle's attention. well, uncle is going to leave tomorrow. so beanie, you better say proper goodbye to him tomorrow.
so is this machine here an antique in malaysia???
i found the serial number and also a website that gives the age of the machine according to the serial number. so according to the website, grandma's sewing machine was built in 1956. do your calculation and the age of the machine would be around 55 years old now. you really can't fault a well-manufactured product eh? as i said previously, this machine is still functional if the belt is replaced. dad said he would ask a restaurant owner who keeps antiques here in tm if he is interested. i hope he is interested and this machine will not go to waste.
so the mission today- get rid of unwanted stuff and tidy the big kitchen cabinet in the picture shown here. this is how it looked before.....or after i had started a while. it was such a headache. i threw away 3 bags of plastic, 2 bags of metal, and one big box of things which could not be recycled. that is the big brown box on the left of the picture. dad had sent it to the big bin 2 blocks away. phew!
this is the result after one whole afternoon of slogging. hahaha, the bright light really made the effect so much better in the picture. kakaa....
i also have to keep the plastic table there for the elderly to hold when they walk around in the kitchen. it is their support before taking the last few steps into the bathroom.
