Xmas Trees and houses

I have always wanted to paint Xmas scene with snow and a random house or two. Here are two of my interpretations on instagram:

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

Don’t you love it..the end of year feeling? The time to relax and wind down. To take stock and think through what you have done and NOT done for the year? I love the cool air in Singapore at the end of the year. The rainy spells and dreamy days where many of my friends…

The iconic Sloane Court Hotel

It was a nostalgic moment of sorts when I stepped back into the Sloane Court Hotel after almost 20 years. It was a usual haunt for me and my colleagues after our work in St Joseph’s Institution as it was just a short drive away from Malcolm Road. Soon this iconic place will give way…
