Tinkerbelle (@Lillyheart999) I hope for their sake that they are happily fed now too!

jaclyn @ thelateafternoon My guy attracts the kitties… or rather, they attract him!

lisa s & Caroline Wang Could not agree more!

HiLLjO You have to see the place to believe it! Your wedding looks fun! I’d be thrilled to see all your creations up close!


welcome your wanderlust

Housed in a 1920s old school building is this wanderful hotel that reminds us of the dreams we should be having.

maybe they should be art-nouveau-inspired...

with colours that 'pop', of yellow submarines and purple rain...

of limitless possibilities, painted out on blank canvases...

filling you up with secret messages and joyful poetry...

dreams should be like your secret garden...

they are a form of escape...

What are your dreams like?

* Wanderlust Hotel – 2 Dickson Road, Singapore 209494

From Portland to Peonies I wish I am still in Europe too! You know, in that state of self-denial and eat pasta and gelato everyday, thinking, Italian women don’t get fat!

Michelle Thank you, and it was!

Chic ‘n Cheap Living Don’t you just wish that you could bring that yellow postbox home? At least I know I do!!

Cinz Thinking back, why didn’t we try that too??!!

jaclyn @ thelateafternoon I love my adventures with my Bushyhead! I’m looking forward to many more to come!

A Oh yes, an ex-colleague shared that idea with me many years ago. It’s a kick to collect all that foreign stamps and country ink-stamps on the postcards as well!

Maddy You have GOTTA be THERE!!! It’s inspiring!

MelRod Thanks for dropping in, Melrod! *hugs!*

Mabel Hi Mabel! Text in the pictures? Do you mean the caption? Is it their placement or size that makes the post hard to read? Let me know! 🙂

I don’t think I’d met anyone who don’t like Alice in Wonderland.

Well, I never heard it before, but it sounds uncommon nonsense.

To quote from the website,

This story begins with a broken heart. Rem’s attempt to get the girl back was made by downsizing architecture to its smallest and most vulnerable scale, that of a woman’s foot.

While most romantic notions are often foolish, what was hatched through the inspiration of romance was the ‘Möbius’ shoe. The girl was gone, but he knew the shoe had to become real.

The ‘Möbius’ went on to be nominated for the Rotterdam Design Award in 2003. What a tribute to a love story, even if it was fleeting… nonetheless…

I’m a size 40. (whistling)
