Weekly Photo Challenge: Merge


And no. I didn’t make these beautiful babies. I just took pictures of them at the Sofitel Lounge while waiting for our office car on an awesome night last week. It was the Philippine National Health Research System Week celebration. After a whole day of listening to presentations of would-be and already great scientists, I had the chance to witness the performance of the country’s national dance group, Bayanihan. I must say… it was nothing but astounding. I was so overwhelmed by what I saw  which led me to post this Einstein quote in my FB account: “The arts and sciences are branches of the same tree. All these aspirations are directed toward ennobling man’s life, lifting it from the sphere of mere physical existence and leading the individual towards freedom.”

I concluded the post with this remark, “I agree. I was able to prove this again today. Thank you Lord for reminding me why science is my first love and why every form of art is beautiful. =)”

So where does this picture come in? Culinary, I believe, is a product of science and art. Behind the beauty and form of this masterpiece was the careful and calculated moves of an expert hand. We will never have this art without the science behind it. Likewise, what’s the point of the all the science behind if the end product is not a work of art?

This, my friends, is what i call a MERGE. 🙂

    1. Wow! Thank you so much sir for that comment. Superficial as it may sound, I try to inject thoughtfulness in each of my post because I hate the idea of posting just for the sake of posting alone. 🙂
