Taken at Sango, Rockwell.
One of the things I loved about this resto are the many origami creations scattered through out the place. During its early days, I used to shamelessly filch from their collection: paper cranes, flowers and hearts which I then bring to work to put on my dreary desk.
The papers decorating the bamboo stick reminded me of a vast field, filled wit flowers fluttering in the wind. The tiny origami creations, some shaped like fishes, some like crane added a whimsical touch on an otherwise ho-hum decoration.
When I was younger, I used to day dream of a scene featuring of course, melodramatic me emoting on a field of yellow and pink flowers while the guy of my dream slowly walk towards me, clutching a bunch of summer flowers. In my dreams, he will embrace me and say utterly syrupy things that will probably make my knees weak…
…until I suddenly realize that the freaking dream is actually more like a frame-by-frame copy of one of the crucial scenes in the Korean romantic drama, “Spring Waltz”. (I love this drama. In fact, I loved it so much that I used its theme song, “One Love” by Loveholic as one my wedding songs).
