Kung Hei Fat Choi & some 60s dinnerware finds

Kung Hei Fat Choi = Happy Chinese New Year!
This year is the year of the rabbit.
Michael had a day off today so we went for all you can eat Chinese buffet! I was a bit dissapointed that they didn't seem to be celebrating CNY at the restaurant (it just looked the same as it always does!), but in my home City, Manchester - they have a dragon parade, food stalls and celebrations in the centre. Not that we celebrate it personally of course, but its always nice to see pretty lights and decorations for other culture's celebrations and festivals, and its a good excuse to eat Chinese of course! Yum Yum.
I tried to be healthy and had tons of stir fried veg, lychees for dessert and 2 large cups of green tea (see yesterdays H2 -oh! post).
Then we went for a rummage round the charity shops - there were about 10 in total nearby. And I'm glad that we did as we got a 13 piece set of immaculate 60s Myott 'Malaga' dinnerware for a super bargain price;
This is what we got;
1 x serving plate
6 x dinner plates
3 x side plates
1 x breakfast bowl
1 x cooking dish/turin with lid
Close up of the pattern
And of the lidded cooking dish.
And the price?.......
£6.00 ($9.50) THE LOT!! :))
