Leisurely breakfast

I've already shown you the striking spiral sculpture and staircase of Sofitel Manila's Spiral restaurant. We are looking inside from its outdoor dining deck, which is perfect for an early morning breakfast when it's not the rainy season. The sound of falling water from this ornamental reflecting pool and from the waterfall of the lagoon-shaped swimming pool is very soothing.

Oh, yes. This looks like a lovely place to spend a morning, sipping and reading and mumbling in response to interruptions. I could cope, I think.

I don't think you could get a better shot..this is a perfect angle..I can see the pretty water flow-

VP said...

I agree with ciel, I would be very distracted and trying to pint my camera in every direction...

Loree said...

Very interesting reflection. Thanks for visiting my blog.

The sound of water is indeed soothing. And this is a lovely reflection in the windows.

James said...

This is a good one Hilda. I like reflections like this. I look at it and the reflection slowly gets clearer until it's the star of the show.

Misalyn said...

Cool. Nice reflection shot. No wonder Sofitel is so famous. The place looks great. Malamang kung ako ang nandyan, walang humpay ang camera ko sa kakaclick :)

I enjoy the sound of water...always...i get lost in thought listening to it or just watching them fall like that in your photo...samahan mo ng breakfast...ay perfect!

P.S. I really laughed hard when I read your comment "I suspect that in our government, there's a direct correlation about how many security guards a person has and his/her level of corruption." Let's start counting!

Clever photo, more to see than you realise at first

Clytie said...

I agree - one really has to look for a while to catch all of what's in this picture. I especially love the water - very soothing!

George said...

I agree this would be a wonderful place to enjoy a leisurely breakfast.

Ah… so serene. Very different from where I am. It is definitely possible to find a relaxing place for breakfast in Manhattan, but serene… no, haven’t seen one yet. Of course it doesn’t mean that it doesn’t exist. Beautiful and very informative blog, Hilda!

having coffee among the trees would be more interesting. Great photo.
