Hong Kong’s can-do spirit and love of life have not been dampened in any way by the pandemic, and this shows in the production of the Hong Kong Wine & Dine Festival that will run until December 15, 2020. Normally an in-person event, as were most events in the past around the world, the Hong Kong Wine & Dine Festival, organized by the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB), has creatively planned to go ahead with an “online + offline” format for the first time. This will give audiences at home and abroad a new gastronomic experience not bound by time and geographical constraints.

Where I was born, raised for a bit (kindergarten and high school), pursued college and corporate world and where I return to when I visit family in India. Although this story on the link shared is from a rickshaw driver in Mumbai, rickshaws are pretty much seen everywhere in India.
The latest issue of TIME had an interesting image and caption on 'The floating waterfall' in their Big Ideas category - this is at the Palace of Versailles courtesy a Danish-Icelandic artist. You can see more on the link here.
I have not been to this floating waterfall but I have seen something similar in Dubai at the Miracle Gardens. It seems like the water is pouring out from nothingness in mid-air but if you get close enough, of course, you can see the mechanics behind it and the illusion remains no more. I was thoroughly intrigued by this spectacle and am surprised there aren't many around, or maybe there are and I don't know. Have you been to either of these two water-related sculpture attractions or seen something similar?
