a kettle

i found a kettle today. its been so long since i found anything, that it is nice to get that feeling of joy. actually it is a day i found something and kept it. it is not always so. like earlier today, i found some soup bowls and a milk jug. but did not pick them up. i dont have milk with my coffee or tea so a milk jug wont be very useful. and for some reason i did not fancy those bowls. kettles nowadays dont need plugs. in that they need to be put on a base with a plug. this kettle has no base but i got lots of bases at home, and it works with them. gone are those days when u have to put a plug into the kettle everytime you want to boil water. now you just put water in it, and sit it on the base. and what is more, there is no heating element, in the kettle. it is set inside the base of the kettle, so you dont see it. its a kenwood kettle. when you switch it on a blue light comes on inside the kettle, and the switch lights up blue too. its a pretty effect.


today, the light in the sky is very nice. the blue sky and the sunlight streaming in at an angle gives everything a lovely nostalgic look. it looks like the day  is slowly coming to a close, even though sunset is still a few hours away.

      i sometimes wonder what happen to them when they are thrown away like that. are they recycled or what? seems such a waste to just break them up and throw them in the landfill.

        I think it is just wasted. These days, no one wants second hand kettle jugs as Cornell sells a litre nug kettle for $9.90 and it is sometimes banded and given with Nescafe gold instant coffee.

    wow, they are giving away kettles with coffee? no wonder people throw them way before they are broken.
