I'm so in love with the interior design of Six Senses Duxton designed by the acclaimed British designer Anouska Hempel. The hotel features a diverse mix of Chinese, Malay and European elements. The strong hues of black, gold and yellow layered with Chinese screens and calligraphy wallpaper from the designer's personal collection are so chic. The classic and innovative Chinese cuisine at Yellow Pot is amazingly tasty. Also love the unique scent of the hotel lobby. Will need to return for a stay to complete all the other senses. #sixsensesduxton#sixsenses#singapore#heritage#hotel#vacation#yellowpot#chinesecuisine#zen#goodvibes
Buy nice things and take care of 'em.
Today my Uncle gave me my grandfather's old fishing knife. I wish I'd have taken a picture of the knife before I soaked it in vinegar. It had even more rust than shown on the left. More vinegar, baking soda, sand paper, and elbow grease has us about halfway there 😉
Melted beads, from our longhouse that burnt down in April this year. Beads are so important to the Kelabit people. Beads are heirlooms, and used for barter trading (even still today). Each bead has a name and a story of where it came from, travelling from Italy, Africa, India and China and eventually arriving in one the most remote places in Borneo, through barter trading. .
