Shiny Things

For my small apartment kitchen - something new and shiny!
Below: gone are the old wooden kitchen cabinets...
and here's my shiny kitchen!
Finally using some purchases from 100Yen!!

Half hour on high heat, remove and place in this (below) insulating container for self slow cooking.  A sure winner in saving fuel!

Below: picture is self explanatory!
Absolutely worth the RM280.00 I paid for it last year? two years back?
