Ukiyo-e Noren Curtains at Daiso

If you are person with a small budget that wants to add a little practical art to their living space then may I suggest buying some Ukiyo-e Noren curtains at Daiso.  I use a lot of utility shelving (Turn
Utility Shelving Into a Great Clothes Rack
) as a space multiplier for my
small place in Thailand but this shelving gives my place a warehouse feel that I
don’t like.  I flirted with various solutions but ran into these Daiso curtains.  The Daiso curtains cover the shelving, keep out the dust and add an artistic touch to my place.  The curtains are 83 cm (32.6 inches) by 149 cm (58.6 inches).

I spent about 100 Hong Kong dollars at The One in Hong Kong at the Max Valu in the LG 1 floor which is kind of a 12 HK dollar store that sells mostly Daiso goods.  100 HK dollars is 12.88 USD!  So for around thirty bucks I radically changed the look of my apartment.  Below is “A Fine Breezy Day” by Katsushika Hokusai and is no. 4 in the Daiso product line and is one of the Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji collection.

The next one is “Woman Playing a Glass Toy” by Kitawagawa Utamaro and is no. 3 in the Daiso product line.  The Japanese name is Bidoro o Fuku Musume and literally means a Woman Blowing a Vidro.  The vidro is a glass toy that makes a sound when you breathe through it.

The last one is “The Great Wave of Kanagawa” by Katsushika Hokusai and is no. 5 in the Daiso product line.

 And the same shelving system but used as a coat rack below and of course you don’t want to enclose wet stuff with curtains.  As you can see hats and sundries can go on the top.  You can put footwear in the bottom shelves.

Hong Kong Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car Experience

Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car, Hong Kong, cable car

Contrary to what the picture above may suggest, the Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car experience is well worth doing.  The ride was longer than I expected and gave me and my group plenty of time to enjoy the vistas of both the surrounding mountains and Hong Kong.  The cable car does take several turns at various stations rather than being a straight up and down experience.  Once you get to the top then you can go to a temple and see a traditional Chinese village for tourists.
