Hong Kong's Props Heaven - Shanghai Street, Yaumatei


This post is dedicated to all prop freaks everywhere ^_^
One of Hong Kong's prop heavens, Shanghai Street, Yaumatei.



The street's lined with restaurant supplies shops. Cute/elegant/beautiful/adorable/gorgeous stoneware, metals, wood, glass....they got 'em all!


They're available for retail purchases and they're reasonably priced.


It is so hard not to go overboard here...

Stick to:
- Things you need
- Things you need
- and things you need
...and I always failed, extravagantly.


Oh God, peel me off this wall...
If you're worried that you might go crazy, bring a person who will/can remind you that you have absolutely NO MORE space in your kitchen cupboard/home/flat. Bringing another prop freak is a bad idea.


Ohhh...but look at these...I must buy these.
I want them I need them!

Sous chef chanting *no space no space no space no space no space no space lalala~*

Go on, you know you want to...
Shanghai Street, Yaumatei, Kowloon, Hong Kong>
Yaumatei MTR station, exit B2.
