Tealight bases instead of kerosene-soaked wicks. =)
I really love the lamp on the left with floral motives. <3
Saw these pretty little things at Perut Rumah Nonya Cuisine, Jalan Kelawai last night while celebrating a farewell and fell instantly in lamp love with them. Asked the staff if they were on sale and the lady speaking to us said, "No. We don't sell." Then she scoffed and added, "And you cannot find here wan. We buy from Bangkok." T_T Sigh. Talk about rubbing salt into a wound, man. If I had no conscience, I'd totally have just whisked one home. :-/
ANYWAY... will someone out there please tell me the lady is wrong and that I can find them around and about town? (Town = Semenanjung Malaysia, specifically Penang, KL, Ipoh or Malacca.) I'm not particular about which design is available – although I really love the floral one I indicated above – as long as it's still classical-looking. Lemmie know ya? Thanks loads!
