12.04.2012 | 美食與我

[Volume 7 Issue 4, #1382]
三年前攝于巴塞隆納某pintxos餐廳... www.bilbaoberria.com
taken at a pintxos restaurant in barcelona 3 years ago... www.bilbaoberria.com
我曾經相當沉醉于為自己眼前嘅食物影相, 唔理醜有影錯冇放過!! 不過依家過咗呢個level, 只會有興趣影低特色美食.. 不過我仍然一貫作風, 貼上blog嘅, 我從來都唔會扮晒專家評論食物味道, 反而喜歡敘述因為美食而聯想到關於自己嘅故事.. 所以大家偶而會喺我呢個blog見到美食, 但係就唔會知道到底有幾好味, 反而會由食物故事中更加了解我本人.. 仲有, 可以知道邊啲留言係齋睇相唔睇文字嘅!! 哈哈~~ :D
there was once i was so into taking photos of just any food that appear in front of me, no matter how nice or common they are.. but i guess i'm over this level and only interested to snap photos of food that are special to me.. still my style have not changed, for food photos posted on my blog, i never critique the food itself but instead i only like to bring out stories that i relate to these food.. that's why you sometimes see nice food on my blog, but rarely know how they taste, instead understand me more from the "food story" itself.. and yes, can also know which comments are placed by only looking at photos without reading the contents!! haha~~ :D

    2. Good morning, Yvonne. I love baking but not really into it..

    3. Today tried a cake a colleague baked.

      I like people who are into hobbies that can make my tummy full!

      LOL

      Delete
    4. hahaha, nobody can be as persistent as the First Lady, or else how to carry that name right?? :D

      i think maybe First Lady wants to become colleague with Queen already~~

      Delete
    5. LOL! I don't mind as long as got ppl offer to be my guinea pig. Otherwise I need to finish the food myself and become fat later @_@

      Eh, Lina, you come here or I go there? Hehehe!

      Delete
    6. yeah, sometimes when we cook or bake, it's happier to share and appreciated by others than we eat alone ourselves right?? :)

      Delete
  3. Likewise.

    I used to take photos of everything, every mundane food I ate and posted about it.

    Nowadays, there is a story when I post up my food photos. xD

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hahaha, I'm used to be like that, too.

      Stop everyone on the table and start snapping xx times of the single food to get the best one! And it may just a "common" food.

      Delete
    2. Then blog about what I had for breakfast, lunch and dinner earlier.

      Think back, my entries were so lame...

      Delete
    3. I remembered telling those people, 'Oh..those pics are for my kid.' Kidding people :)

      Delete
    4. My entries nowadays are still lame.

      Wakaka

      Delete
    5. hahaha, very true!! last time just take photo of whatever food appearing in front of me, and then post them onto blog and write lame reviews!! hahaha, that's why i think i better not do it now, they are so lame~~ :D

      Delete
    6. Frankly, I "no eye" see my old entries. Feel like deleting them all. Lame and childish. Good for laughing only.

      Delete
    7. hahaha, no lah.. sometimes it's good to read back your older posts.. it does brings back some good memories, and of course some good laughing.. it's just like looking back at our old photos~~ :p

      Delete
  4. Don't care to do food review also.

    I am no gourmand to talk about food!

    But I will grouch about bad service and praise good ones! ^^

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Don't dare to do food review la. If I critic a restaurant on its food or service, tiba-tiba kena sued by the owner - say I jeopardy their reputation.

      I remember there's one case a food blogger masuk paper because he gave bad review on a curry fish head restaurant :p

      Delete
    2. normally I just put up my food pictures and no bad comments..to be on the safe side :)

      Delete
    3. yalah, better not do any review, because we ain't any gastronome also.. somemore food taste is so subjective, one may find that super delicious but others vomit once put into their mouth.. so just stay neutral, let the readers judge from the photo.. although 99.9999% comments will still say very delicious no matter how, haha!!

      Delete
  5. Yum! Good morning!

    I'm not into food review either. *Yawn*

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. even if we don't like certain food, we still eat it..

      Delete
    2. True, at best. At worst, never order it. :D

      Delete
    3. ah yeah, i think those food reviewers are in the same dilemma too!! food not nice, still need to say they are nice~~ :D

      Delete
  6. Now, I don't care about food review posts, movie review posts esp those ad posts.

    But I do read shoes review posts. xD

    ReplyDelete

    1. Hi 5, Lina! I'm so lazy to read about food reviews or event reviews. Sometimes cannot trust all the reviews because the bloggers get to eat free and of course they would write nice nice things about the sponsors. Advertisement mah.

      I prefer to read posts by personal review one. But then, it's up to own preference :)

      Delete
    2. ya, everyone has his/her own preferences.

      Delete
    3. yeah, i also rarely write about food review, or maybe just once in a bluemoon if i really find that delicious.. even though my review can be very lame cos i cannot find enough vocab to describe, haha.. but then look around the blogsphere, we are all faced with blogs with loads of food review right?? can't avoid that actually~~

      Delete
  7. they look good but im so into food reviews lately :P

    1. well, i love blog with lots of food photos.. but frankly 90% i only look at photos unless they attracts me then will be the 10% i read on the words.. :p

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. very true, i just selectively choose special ones to blog about.. and of course not the food itself, but stories i can relate to the food..

  14. Food story.. Same goes to me, good food are always unforgettable. Sometime, a bowl of Ice Kacang is good enough to dig up the childhood memory from the edge of memories.:)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. very true, and i totally agree with you.. and i always think the stories behind the food is way more interesting than just reading how the author thinks how the food taste.. :)

    1. hahaha, i guess so.. but i knew one blogger who prefer not waste time to eat, haha!!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. hahahaha!! actually my picture and contents sometime don't match also.. maybe also because my post is short then you will read, if longer sure you don't have the patience anymore, haha!!

    1. That's the typical comments on food review... blah.

      Okay, okay... sometimes I put up those comments on food blog and I receive sort of that one when I post about my baking stuffs.

      You scratch my back, I scratch yours, hehehe....

      Delete
    2. Otherwise, how do I respond when I read food reviews?

      But if I read baking/homecooked one, that's different story. Or, at least I won't be hypocrite. **woopps, I burst out my ugly side.

      Delete
    3. *note: bilbao berria, such a hard-to-remember and spelled word. I need to scroll up and down to write it. Or am I getting older? Or I'm just stupid....?

      Delete
    4. hahaha, very true lah!! when it comes to food posts, for sure those are the typical comments we will be expecting lah.. that's why i am so sick of those (though i still drop such comments in those PURE FOOD POSTS lah), and i am not writing about the food but the stories behind.. sounds more sophisticated right?? and that's where you know whether the reader really read the contents or not, haha!! :p

      Delete
    5. Hey, bilbao berria is not the name of the food? It's a restaurant??

      Pintxos is the food name, huh? You shouldn't have misled this aunty leh.

      Delete
    6. haha, yalah.. the food is called pintxos (it's spanish, pronounced as pin-chos) and the restaurant is bilbao-berria.. they skew the finger food together like our "look look" here, go to their website www.bilbaoberria.com/en/home and you can see lots of nice pintxos there..

      Delete
  19. SK, a question, did these food you finish all? Quite heavy la!

    ReplyDelete

    1. actually maybe the close up makes them look huge.. in fact they are just bite-size finger food only, furthermore they are so delicious you will sure ask for more!! haha~~
