I know, this is never a good idea to take pictures in the museum. So I'm a low moral douche bag from a museum etiquette point of view. Yes, I shot pictures at the Hong Kong University Museum and Art Gallery yesterday. I shot like hell break loose. So color me scumbag and step on my face. Whatever tickle you fancy if that offended you.
But then again, I was totally in awe when I saw the collection. All kind of antique china and ceramic in one place. And somehow they are all food-related. I can stare at these masterpieces all day long.
It was like being time traveller. I could totally imagine myself having a feast served with all these break-taking porcelains. There, I quaff down a cup of tea with an exquisite tea bowl from the Song dynasty. As usual, we go into a high-spirited talk on different schools of poetry; sipping wines with cups from the Ming dynasty. Before long, the maids bring out perfectly warm meat dishes on hot water plates made in the Qing dynasty. The best part is, I don't even have to move the ivory chopsticks a bit because the food are all put into my mouth by my second and third concubines; with my wife cooking in the kitchen the whole way...
Anyways, give this lovely museum a visit if you're free. The porcelain art of us is a true legacy that I'm very proud to share with all. [click here for the album set at Flickr.com if the above doesn't work well]
