The Incredible Basket

In this sequel to The Amazing Sarong, a beautiful Chinese wedding basket is used in all sorts of ways.

Xiaoming delivers a batch of ang ku kueh with the basket, then fashions it into a prop for a lion dance. When the sun beats down on him, the basket's lid is now a hat! And at home in a second-floor shophouse, the basket is attached to a rope to pass a comic book and a bowl of noodles.
