First up has to be these moulds used for making traditional Chinese cakes. Sock Hoon's mother has a collection of these moulds which were hand made in China and could be 50 to 60 years old. And guess what. They are the right 1/12th scale for doing the plaster reliefs on Peranakan houses!! Result. Imprinted in air drying clay and painted up these are going to look brilliant as part of the houses decoration. Many thanks to Sock Hoon and her mum for letting me borrow them.

Next are these bits from Daiso, a Japanese $2 store here in Singapore. Every single item in the shop cost $2 Sing. These items are part of a collection for bonsai gardens, again, near as damn it 1/12th scale. Amazing what turns up where!!
