Pimp My Kariton
Garbage collecting kariton in Singapore, looking so neat and refreshing.
In my short car-driving stint, I actively explored ways to incorporate indoor plants into automobile interiors. I had failed on all counts, with results ranging from a small pot spilling its contents onto the seats, to rooting stems in bottles nestled in my cupholders, looking magnificent in the morning and then perishing in the sauna-like environment created by Manila heat.
Some kind of fortune-bringing plant.
I admit that if my means for carrying my stuff around had been a kariton, it never would have crossed my mind to incorporate a sunken potted plant into the wooden bed. Well, perhaps now that I've seen one, things will be different.
