Capella Singapore has partnered with a range of local and international brands to bring staycationers the best and most unique experiences in the city through a series of popups. In line with Capella Hotels and Resorts’ dedication to offer an enriching experience for all guests, Capella Singapore’s ever-changing roster of upcoming pop-ups ensures that no two stays are the same. Injecting a breath of fresh air in Singapore’s staycation scene, the series includes mastering the fine art of writing with Montblanc, drumming with award-winning Chow Kiat, learning the basics of organic farming with Edible Garden City and up close and personal wildlife encounters with Dr Ooz from the Singapore Zoo.
Calligraphy with Montblanc While typed text can feel impersonal, a handwritten note or letter is charged with the emotion, energy and time of the writer. Handwritten letters are not just a romantic pastime tinged with nostalgia, it’s a unique form of self-expression that builds a meaningful connection with others. Guests can explore self-expression through handwriting and the art of calligraphy with Montblanc.
