The plate above........... and the bowl below
Corelle is so so so expensive here. To get a set of 16 pcs here costs about RM450. But in US, a set of 30 pcs only costs about USD89. It's really cheaper to get a 30 pcs there than to get a 16 pcs here when converted.
My mother in law just came back from Houston and she bought me a set of 30pcs Corelle Pure White Square Set. 6 cups, 6 small bowls, 6 large bowl, 6 medium plates and 6 large plates. When she checked in for her flight, she sent them together with her luggage into the cargo, cos it's supposed to be unbreakable. Alas, they were not. When she arrived in KLIA... cling clang can be heard from inside the box. Darn!!!
When she came home, we quickly opened up to see how many were broken. Hmmm.. I still have 6 cups, 6 small plates, 5 big bowls, 6 medium plates and 6 large plates. How come I have 2 broken bottom pieces??? One piece was definately the big bowl and the other.....*searching searching* Medium plate matched!!! Gosh....They were in the middle. And I still have 6 medium plates. Lucky me! So I consider myself to have one big bowl broken.. broken to shards.... But how come they packed an extra plate in??? They knew that one will soon be broken?? The Corelle workers have the gift of phophecy I guess :)
My mother in law said....Geez, they were flying the Corelle plates in the US commercial, so it wasn't that true... :)
I can't send them in for warranty as they were damaged during travel and that wasn't covered in the warranty. Too bad! Luckilly I had that extra plate :)
