I remember using them, however, at my grandparents' place .... a long, long time ago. Because of that, for me, enamel plates bring an old-fashioned feel to things.
I searched at home, and .... found 2 enamel plates. One regular-sized one with floral pattern. It's really old as it's already chipped and the parts of the smaller flower petals had already faded ...
And old enamel plate ...
The other one I managed to locate at home as a huge plate, which seemed almost like a rounded tray. That one was not used anymore. It was kept high up on the shelf ... so I did not bother to take it down.
I accompanied Mom to the market the other day ... and was searching for enamel plates to buy .... There were some sold at a small shop there. An elderly couple manned the shop. I saw some coloured enamel ware ...
"Any floral patterned ones?" I asked.
"No, only these coloured ones. The flower ones are out of fashion," the elderly lady replied.
Lols. Exactly why I wanted to buy them. But since there wasn't much choice, I bought one beige-coloured piece.
My new beige-coloured enamel plate, RM2.20
I ate my lunch with it the other day. Mom had cooked me my favourite rice vermicelli and cangkuk manis stirfry. But then, the plate exuded a very pitiful feeling ...... lols .... so instead of enjoying my noodles, it made me feel sorry for myself!
