Beauty In the Dark

Dine in the Dark

Dine in the Dark

By stroke of luck I happened to stumble upon this restaurant while planning dinner with friends. We went to this restaurant called Dine in the Dark. The concept of this restaurant is to give patrons an experience to dine in total darkness and served by blind people, which originated with Jorge Spielmann, a blind clergyman from Zurich.

We were served by a lovely 25 year old blind waitress named Hani (Honey). She was abandoned by her parents at a nearby temple when she was a young child. Fortunately, a kind-hearted person took care of her and she was brought up in the local institute of blind and deaf. Despite her disability, her self perseverance and strong will to survive independently makes her a remarkable lady.

The dining experience was interesting and very thought provoking.

What does the definition of beauty meant to a blind person?

Sad to say, living in a superficial world, we as a human being have always subconsciously taken a lot of things for granted and always strive for the elusive perfection. For every elusive perfections we seek, we fail to remember the good in its original form.

Blind or no blind, Beauty is something which can’t be heard, seen, touched, tasted, or smelled. It can only be felt not by the skin but by the heart.

For those who happens to be in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, do check out this restaurant:-
