Hello Singapore!

Yes we were again in Singapore last weekend and again we have had so much fun! Perhaps getting to see our new apartment for the first time from the inside really helped 🙂 Yes this is my little secret, last year we bought a small apartment in Singapore. The main reason for us is to have a place in Asia that is our own home, no matter how small our big it is our little haven were we can go to whenever we want to. We will keep on living in Kuala Lumpur but are planning to spend as much time as possible in SIngapore once the apartment is finished. This city is perhaps the greenest city in the world and makes it possible to spend a lot of time outdoors in the parks, beach- or riverside?  We don't have the actual key yet but I have started making mood-boards for the interior decoration. Will keep you posted!

On our way back home to Kuala Lumpur we stopped at Sentosa Island to grab some lunch at this super beautifully styled beach-club called the Tanjong Beach Club, only ten minutes away from the city! The decoration of the restaurant is absolutely gorgeous and I hope I will have a romantic diner their with Rik sometime soon 🙂

    So good to see this post. We arrived back from Singapore on Saturday morning after a 12 day visit to see if it could be our next home!!! My first time in Asia. Loved it. We had 5 days on Sentosa and the rest in the city. A great combination. Your apartment looks amazing. I’d love to know where about it is in the city as we shall be home hunting over the coming months once all the details are finalised.

    That is very exciting news! I think if I could have an escape it would be in Spain. It always felt like our home away from home!
