Pictured: one really tiny temple, on a little rock outcrop, beside a small river of running water.
Spiritual harmony in miniature.
This is an Asian-styled water feature at the entrance to my favourite Vietmamese restaurant in Otahuhu, Auckland (which ,by the way, has a killer banh mi roll…to die for!)
The little water garden is by far the prettiest thing about the place, which is a very ordinary boxlike 1960s office remade into an eatery without too much actual remaking having gone on, with kleenex for napkins.
But you come for the warm welcome and some of the best cheap eats in town, gathered with your friends or family.
Call me shallow(as a water feature river), but that is the sort of spiritual harmony that I can relate to!
