Update April 22, 2008: I went back to the supermarket and finally bought it. Gosh..

Today, I found my fettish.
About a week ago I was at a supermarket, when I realized I had this thundering urge to buy a set of measuring cups. It’s a cheap kind. Plastic, white, not that fancy steel or creamic in bright colors Nigella style or premium glass cup. But I felt my blood rushing wanting to grab and throw it into my trolley. A couple of seconds later, my head yanked at me, “Aren’t there already 2, sorry, 3 sets of measuring cups in your cupboard?”
She’s right.

This morning, when I was looking for my black measuring cups, I checked, and yes, I have 3 sets of measuring cups and 3 sets of measuring spoons. Is this a lot? No, not really. But when you add that I had given away another set of measuring cups and spoon for a doorprize, fighting a gory battle against myself from buying every set I found in baking shops, this becomes abundant. Not to mention screaming everytime Nigella takes out her red shiny ceramic measuring cup, mocking me, torturing me like a sinner.

I didn’t realize it until today. Whoa! How weird having a fettish.. So strangely cool at the same time..
Now, you know what to give me for my birthday. *which by the way, is approaching. oh, noooooo!!!*
What is yours?

**Gosh, even now I’m still thinking about that measuring cup I left behind at the supermarket!!**

  1. I have at least five or six sets of each, including two of the ones you have in your photo! Yes, it’s an addiction!

    What I want is tablespoon and teaspoon measuring spoons sold individually. I seem to use those the most.

  2. Wow a great collection indeed!! But I can understand you perfectly I keep buying lots of things for baking and also for my job I’m always full of magazines and books from around the world and probably most part of them won’t be even usefull ..but..:-) that is!

  3. i have salt&pepper shaker collection. Maybe you should start your meas cup& spoon collection therefore an excuse for buying more, hehehe….
