I dropped by  Nienke's Black and White House off house as she was literally packing her house to leave Singapore for Geneva. After an expat post in Singapore this Dutch family are moving to Switzerland but taking many memories with them. Raffles Hotel is an iconic landmark of Singapore and somewhere that has a deep connection to the family through the grandparents regular visits over the past 25 years.

From Nienke Muller

Dear Clare, We received your beautiful Raffles Hotel Limited Edition Print  from very dear friends on our farewell from Singapore. The perfect gift! The painting is a reminder of lovely memories. My in laws have visited Singapore for over 25 years and always stay in  Raffles Hotel. We have lived in Singapore for 5 years and when my inlaws visit, our kids have special sleepovers at Raffles with their grandparents. So this will remind them of their childhood as they grow up when they look at this special artwork for years to come! It will get a special spot in our new home in Geneva!
