Over the recently passed weekend, T surprised me with a mini escapade as a way of celebrating my getting one year older. We checked into Naumi, a local boutique hotel in central Singapore. Before this, we’ve driven past it many times and I’ve always been drawn to its design and quirky typeface. So, I was excited to have the opportunity to check out its interior.
I love our room! The use of lighting in the different areas of the room cleverly demarcated the space and invoked different moods. The bar area had orange-red spot lights while the sleeping area was dimmer and cozier. I love how the red chair accented the living area and it did look like it could be someone’s apartment.
We didn’t mention but the staff spotted my birthdate on my identification card and later sent us a complimentary tiramisu.
We spent the evening at the rooftop lap pool. As the sun began to set, and the few other people who were there left for dinner, we had the area to ourselves. With a beer bottle in hand, I sat at the pool edge, dipped my legs in the water, and watched as the sky gradually changed it colour. It was as if I was watching a live painting on a huge canvas.
So, this is what happens everyday.
That night, it looked extremely beautiful.
