My first ever Dine in the Dark experience organised by Asia Square management and Singapore Association of the Visually Handicapped (SAVH) on Earth Hour, 29 Mar 2014.

No photos during the dinner as lights were all out for the whole meal. It was so dark that I could not even see my hands. Spot of lights could be seen from the building fire alarm sensor. As we were briefed before the meal, we could only visualise how the table setting with the below photo brochure.

The food was more delicious when it was eaten in total black. I could forsake the visuality of food but just enjoyed purely the fragrant and taste. No picking of food as I was unable to make out the food before putting into my mouth. Every bite was precious when the food was not easily spooned out and dropped off quite a numerous of times. Started of with salmon veggie salad. Next was the main course of grilled fish, mash potato and coleslaw. Finally ended of with the dessert – little tub of strawberry flavoured ice cream with wooden spoon.

After finishing the 3 courses, lights were on at the end of dinner.
