Hide-and-seek

I have to confess that I have a thing for bathrooms and powder rooms (which we call the comfort room or CR for short). I dream of the day when we can have all of ours renovated to look like those featured in Good Housekeeping, but until then, I love peeking into those in hotels, restaurants and posh homes, even if I don't need to use them, just to see how they're decorated. This is the powder room at Sofitel Manila's 7Pecados by the Bay. Both the attendant and I hid behind walls while I was taking this photo—a fat lot of good that did us.

I like fancy "comfort rooms" too! Funny photo! You can run but you can't hide!

Re your comment on The Villages DP: Both "downtowns" in The Villages have music and dancing every night, year round (except for inclement weather)...most of the music is Golden Oldie stuff and country/western.

If'n your husband won't dance, there are any number of gents hanging around who would gladly lead you out on the dance "floor."

Vernz said...

I heard this from around here... that the way you treat/decorate or something of that sort your bathroom, reflects daw the kind of person that you are ...

George said...

This is a very fancy CR, but what I like best is what the reflection shows on the right side of the picture! Gotcha!!

bfarr said...

Great shot. That's what I love about photography. The surprise of catching something unexpected.

brattcat said...

It's true. This shot holds the wonderful surprise of coming upon the two figures attempting to conceal themselves.

Ebie said...

AL said...

Umm I wonder how it came to be called powder room? Well anyway, you did a good job hiding, I do it too!

Btw, the duck photos were taken months ago along C6 road.

Quite a lovely power room! Interesting reflections as well :-)

Very posh indeed, Hilda. Comfort Room is a perfect name for this room :)

Wonderful shot and reflection. How clever. Have a great weekend. :)

Marites said...

had to smile on this post because it seems we have the same habits:) If only i can have Martha Stewart decorate our comfort room..i'd be deliriously happy.

My PH is here.

VP said...

I would like to see more powder rooms like this around!

I'm sure I can stay a bit longer than I need in a CR like this! Nice picture, Hilda.

Kaori said...

Hahaha! Well you tried and that's what counts :)

SRQ said...

Nice shot. And, terrific CR!

T. Becque said...

Oh, that's funny, but it did do you good, you got a lovely photo out of it!

Dina said...

Wow, that's a lot of mirror to clean--was my first pragmatic reaction.
And I thought I was the only weird blogger to have a photo file called WCs. :)

AB said...

By the way, I have a very similar dream:)

James said...

Too vad all restrooms don't look so nice. :) I really like this shot. A neat reflection seen from a cool angle.

Ineke said...

ALL of yours will be restored? My goodness, i am glad our one and only bathroom is just finished ;)
