One thing I’ve noticed in China is that the locals are obsessed by plastic bowls, H’s parents have got stacks of the things back at their house and most of the streetside hardware stalls display an impressive array of bowls in sizes varying from about 10cm across to more than a metre, with every possible dimension inbetween.

So, last week I decided to treat H to a new bowl, and very excited she was too! She had a good browse through and decided she needed something in the range 21cm to 25cm, having already got a 20cm bowl and a 26cm bowl.

In the end she opted for this splendid translucent blue 22.5cm bowl by the famous Chinese brand “PISH BABY”, which we thoroughly recommend, keep your eye out for them, well worth the 3 or 4 rmb we paid for it!
