Porcelain

Porcelain from Japan that’s microwave & dishwasher safe, although hand wash is recommended. Since it’s handmade, the glaze colors & texture vary slightly – which is exactly why it’s perfect.

What else is needed right now, other than a comfy sofa, stack of magazines & naturals light – sounds perfect to me.

Singapore 🇸🇬

The beauty of this green island city-state. Admittedly a luxury retail location to world-class international cuisines. But Singapore is more than famous shopping precinct, it’s a home to a wealth of experiences. Innovative architecture, exciting tracking trails, heritage buildings & shophouses + parks & enormous greenery all over the city-state.

Sweden 🇸🇪

Sweden’s National Day, June 6, a day when most people are free. There’s a thought to it – to simply have time to celebrate, relax & rejoice.
But just the day itself, June 6, is a perfect day to celebrate the country, the people and the turning point between spring & summer when Sweden is dressed in summer attire & for many is the most beautiful.

Travel

There’s a lot of speculations that travel habits will change, decrease & domestic options will be the future. Very possible, but the longing for a different culture, different experiences, nationalities & new acquaintances in the shape of locations – will always trigger the longing & curiosity.

Gardening

It’s difficult to plant next to boulders. There’s not always sufficient soil depth. With deep soil-filled “bowls” made of steel frames with different widths & heights, you get great planting opportunities.

Dark

What do you think of a dark bookshelf? It reminds me of our first home when we were newlyweds. We had a dark bookshelf covering a wall & white painted walls that we combined with a mix of white & dark furniture. Quite traditional & probably an unconscious copy of the parental home.

Asian Civilisation Museum

We spent a couple of hours at the Asian Civilization Museum (ACM) recently. It’s one of the pioneering museums specializing in the material history of China, Southeast, South & West Asia, from which the various ethnic groups in Singapore trace their ancestry.

It’s a beautiful building architecturally on the outside & just as beautiful & exciting on the inside. We walked through the exhibition of Tang Shipwreck, Ancient religions & Life in Edo – all beautifully told & well presented.
