Ever Wonder What It Would Be To be Blind? Dinner In The Dark



 Ever wonder what it would be like to be blind? In my dinner in the dark experience, It made me see a lot of things. That we are just so  fortunate indeed to have sight and see, unlike our brothers and sisters who are blind. There are many things we take for granted and not grateful about. It made me realize that even in eating we can appreciate the beauty of seeing what is it that God have created for us to see. And it touched my heart  how our blind fellows managed to go on everyday with the disability they have. 

 The Zoomanity Group, having come up with this event to let us experience,  understand and empathize with the condition of the blind, is really a commendable act. And this was done in an equally for a good cause place. At the Metro Ruins the  newest resto  hub in Makati . where group can hang out, chill and enjoy the urban fee. Break out form all the stress of the city life and see the metopolitan view in a new light. Satistfy you food choices in this 2-in-1 restotaurant spot  featuring Yakitori Daitokyo and Dampa by the Ruins, a fusio  of Japanes and Filipino sine.
