Forbidden City 2.1 - Daily Items

In the Forbidden City, some of the palaces in both the East side and West doubled up as museums of artifacts used back then.

I came across this bowl made of gold and for some strange reason, I thought of our ministers' salaries. I wonder why. :P

We all heard of the saying born with a silver spoon. I think the royalties here lagi more tok kong. They got gold spoon ok!!

This item above is a roller massager dated back as early at the 17th century.

I took a closer look at the description placard and did a double-take. The Chinese description of this tool is 推胸 which literally translates to "Push Chest".

Suddenly, I was flooded with all the "massage chest" jokes that I used to kachow Starmist with.

Actually... I cannot remember how this "massage chest" thing started. Do you remember?

Starmist: It started with your bout of migraine and I offered to massage your chest to alleviate the pain.
