I was looking for a set of every-day dishes and anything else was a bonus in my mind. Spode is a European brand that outsources production to Malaysia. Their retail cost is pretty high but we got some amazing deals. After we had been browsing for about an hour we rolled up our sleeves and got to work finding some great dishes. A few of us are moving back to America after being in Singapore (Asia) for a while so we knew we wouldn't likely get another chance to procure these items.
After we had all loaded up our goods we went in search of food. The options were... interesting but we ended up at a little market and I think everyone was satisfied in the end. Then we loaded back up and headed home to our families.
Thank you all for a wonderful time, fun memories, and thanks for sharing your photos! Credits to Robin and Sarah for adding to my post!

|Fruit man. We stocked up on fruit because it was 1/4 the cost as in Singapore!|
|Robin taught me an important lesson today: You can order vegitarian fried rice anywhere and it's usually pretty good! |
This was delicious. and spicy!
|I love this shot Sarah got. All of us leaving the market with our fruit.|
|I bought a few things...|
|I bought 12 dessert plates in the "Willow" collection. I got 4 different designs, three of each. |
These are all an Asian landscape/ buildings design. I really liked them.
|Then I got 12 large dinner plates. These are caged animals from the "Blue Room" collection.|
|I got an ostrich.|
|and some kangaroos|
|Here's what they look like all together and with the dessert plates on top. |
