2 may 2011 – the thought of visiting a museum may bore some (or most?) people. but not me. i enjoy discovering the history of a place, though at the end of the day, i may not necessarily remember the facts i learnt *sheepish*

there was an exhibition of the history of black dresses going on when I was there. the dress with a guitar at the rear is designed by Karl Lagerfeld in 1983.

put your nose near the funnel-shaped metal piece, pull the ring, and you will get a whiff of the corresponding herbs/spices.
