Miniature Bakul Siah



Saw this miniature "Bakul Siah" on sale at Jonker Walk. The actual-sized "Bakul Siah" is commonly used to deliver gifts by a bridegroom to his bride house during a Chinese wedding. When I was a child, my relatives used to send cakes using this basket. But these days most would just place them in Tupperware containers.

Have you seen a "Bakul Siah" before?

Those are lovely mini nonya baskets. My late mom had a bigger one. I think it is still in my brother's house hidden somewhere in the storeroom.

hello just stumbled upon this photo, was wondering if you could still remember the price of this mini bakul siah?

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
