Junked treasures

Apart from the invasion of toys in the living room, Rosabelle has a carton box of odds and ends (pamphlets, boxes, bottles, ribbons, packets... basically junk that your karung guni man, or 收破烂, will have a field day about). We whip things out of this 百宝箱 if she starts getting difficult at meal times since they might get all dirty with food and we can then throw them away (unless they can be wiped, or if she really likes them) - I know, we should not let her play and eat at the same time, but whatever...

However, instead of playing with her 'normal' toys these days, she loves to go to the corner and empty/pore through items in the junk box. Having said that, it's also on junk like these that she has practised opening bottles/twisting off bottle caps rather deftly now, moving her hands in opposite directions to get the caps off. She even dips her fingers into the jars and pretends to apply cream on her face as she sees me do that alot, heh!
'Nuff said. (I know I've said this before, but I sure am glad the nanny was the one who packed up the mess, haha...
