Last weekend we went on a little family trip to Taiping. One of the stops was the historical Antong Coffee Mill. This is also where the historical figure of Dr Sun Yat Sen and his wife stayed when they were in Taiping. The little house had some antiques displayed. Some really old ones and some from the 70s and 80s. I recognised the little collapsible clock displayed as well as the frog on lily pad ashtray which Dad used to use back when I was little. Probably my primary school days. The clock was placed on the mantel of Mom and Dad's bed. Looks like we have been through quite a series of ashtrays during that period of time as I now think of them.
