My ex-housemate had an interesting theory of buying tableware for the house. She didn't like to buy tableware of the same design/ color. She prefer to get those thing separately. When she saw a nice design, she would buy it to be added in the collection. By doing that, she can share the story ( when, where, why, color, design, etc ) on how she get each of them with the guests. Great topic la konon.
But for someone who got a bit of OCD issue, i just can't see things so 'meriah' ( messy / kelam-kabut ) on the dining table. Can you?
