Hello everyone! How's your week so far? It's super cold here in the desert at the moment and I'm loving it so much. All my sweaters, scarves and favorite cardigans are enjoying too much exposure the past weeks but I still can't layer enough clothes to keep myself warm. Really enjoy problems like this! Way better than the merciless sunshine of summer and all the headaches it brings for sure. If not for my inability to part with the bed in the morning, I would surely want the weather here to stay this cold forever and ever.
Anyway, I shared before in a previous post my experience riding the monorail in Palm Jumeirah for the first time. It was a major blast so it felt like the most natural thing for us to come back and experience that part of Dubai once again. I was busy with too much weekend projects and have been itching for a quick trip some place nice, but still easily accessible. Going to The Palm was really the perfect getaway to unwind a little bit. So today I wanna share with you one of my favorite shots from our recent visit to Atlantis, The Palm, a rockin' five-star resort hotel here in Dubai.
No, this isn't a framed painting or canvas. It's the underwater-themed ceiling of the hotel's lobby in their retail space. Aside from all the shops, this was probably the first one that caught my attention. Pretty amazing, right? I think I stared at it like a lunatic for a good three minutes.
I love beautiful and colorful ceilings. There's something about them that makes me smile and remember the beautiful ceilings and spectacular architecture of old churches from my childhood back in the Philippines. Well that and my inner frustrated artist's lifelong dream of visiting the Sistine Chapel to see Michelangelo's iconic ceiling work up close of course. Someday! :)
Can't help but also take a picture of the lobby's floor. I guess I'm just as obsessed when it comes to intricate floors as well. Haha!
Did you go to any place interesting recently? Hope all of you are having a great week! :)
