"Tiny bubbles... make me happy, make me feel fine." Of course Don Ho was singing about the tiny bubbles in the (sparkling) wine -- champagne? -- but those to be found at the top of this Photo Hunt entry, and the memories of the occasions at which those photos were taken, make me feel happy and fine just the same.
The first of the pair was shot at a free, outdoor, all-day art event called Sculpture on Hong Kong Sea which took place last November 29th (and from which I've previously shared other photos on this blog (see here, here and here)). Exercising my own artistic impulses, I zoomed in for a close-up shot of the center of Hugo & Orrizonte's Illusory Chinampa which had tiny live fish swimming in water that was full of tiny bubbles in a triangular shaped container placed on the shore of Repulse Bay beach.
The second photo was taken at dinner one evening while my mother and I were on vacation in Korea last fall (for a sample photo-essay, go here). Strolling around the area near our hotel, we decided to dine at one of the many specialist beef restaurants that we saw. But although I thought I had ordered a barbecue dish, what we got served had quite a bit of liquid in it -- liquid which was full of tiny bubbles as the dish slowly but surely cooked in front of us.
Put another way, instead of the conventional, drier bulgogi I'm used to, we had bulgogi stew. Still, even while it wasn't what we had had in mind, trust me when I say that the food was really delicious. So much so that my mother and I had absolutely no problems devouring pretty much everything that was presented to us at that restaurant that evening, main dishes, accompanying banchan, rice and all! :b
