Most of our working lives together, I worked in or near, a city centre while Marius worked in the wastelands of oil-refinery land. He was rarely in a position to bring home anything in the way of treats or surprises. However, when we lived in Kuala Lumpur, Marius worked in the Petronas Towers, above a swanky shopping centre known as Suria KLCC. He travelled constantly during those years, so his visits to the office were irregular and usually short. One day, he brought this home for me, on a whim:

This day, the department store was having a Shopping Spectacular - a Promosi Hebat! and Marius must have had a few minutes of spare time over lunch.
The teapot has a nice removable basket which is ideal for loose tea or extra herbs. I use it when I make mint tea. The handle stays cool, the tea stays hot, and the spout pours smoothly without dripping.
I haven't tried rubbing it to make a wish - but you are welcome to experiment and let me know what the genie brings you - good luck, I hope.
