Weekends with Angie & James | Part X: Easter Staycation @ Hotel Fort Canning, Singapore

Hey, long time no blog! I’ve decided to keep going with the Weekends Series (no, I haven’t been lazy, don’t look at me like that). Something a little different from our usual routine (or maybe not so different, since we love our staycations) – we checked ourselves into the elegant Hotel Fort Canning for a couple of nights over the Easter long weekend. Never heard of HFC? It’s one of Singapore’s lesser-known colonial style hotels (lesser-known because it’s tucked away in a lush heritage park instead of located along the streets of the central business district, so people never really get to see it in all its sprawling glory).

I highly recommend this gorgeous hotel to anyone wanting to just hide away from the city and surround themselves with nature. If you like birdwatching, get up early and head out into the park to get your fill of Singapore’s intriguing birdlife. That said, beware of territorial birds – we almost got caught in the crossfire between two warring red junglefowl.

Surprisingly, I managed to get back into my writing groove during our stay, so I guess my brain isn’t quite dead yet. I was so ridiculously inspired I managed to write upwards of five thousand words of something decent over the span of just a few hours.
