28.12.2012 | 假可亂真

[Volume 7 Issue 12, #1642]
大家見到嘅其實唔係真食物, 而係假可亂真嘅食品模型!! 其實我一向來都非常著迷於呢啲食品模型㗎, 甚至可以企住喺度仔細欣賞每一個細節之處(就好似男人昅女人胸部同女人研究男人激凸一樣), 讚嘆模型做得多麼地逼真.. 個人覺得日本食肆最常見呢啲食物模型, 我認為係一個吸引食客入座非常之好嘅方法.. 其實初初我係愚蠢到以為呢啲食物模型, 係真食物經過多重防腐措施製成嘅, 後來先知道其實全部都係人造膠嚟嘅啫, 哈哈!! 我真係想真心講一句, 齋睇都覺得佢非常好味, 好神奇好一級棒呀.. :)
nope, these are not real food mind you, but just food model display that look like real!! i am always fascinated by these food models, and i can even stand there admiring every detail (like men looking at a lady's boobs and women examining a man's bulge), awed by how real they are made to look.. i think these are more common in japanese restaurants, and i really like the idea of display such food models to attract people going in to dine.. initially i was so dumb to think that those are real food very well preserved with layers of anti-perish coatings, haha!! but later i realized they are just mostly plastics mold and colored to look so similar to the real thing.. even looking at them i will drool, really amazing and thumbs up i'd say.. :)

  2. Happy Friday Morning, SK and everyone.
    I am already in New Year mood, I think this mood will continue till Chinese New Year.
    So, I will try to control my temper for not erupting that fast, especially when dealing with my girls.

    1. Good morning Hot Mama! Wah you so hot until smoke spews from your head Kah? Next time inhale 10 seconds when angry to let your steam come down. Anger and stress causes cancer faster than someone who smokes a packet of cigarette daily.

    2. I think Yannie is more concern on wrinkles..
      if get angry you will get wrinkle faster...
      so be cool.. just let it be..
      it is new year after all.....

    3. Anay and SP, both of you also right la ! I am very concerned about health and youth one. I am scared of cancer and so wrinkles.

      I will only get really upset with the person I love the most.

    4. no wonder you always scold annay..
      ooo now I know yannie.. kakakakaka

    5. SP,
      Yan didn't scold you when you met her ah?

      Wah... SP must be on his very best behaviour in from of Hot Mama! Haha

    6. Good day and happy Friday to all! New Year is only 3 days away, yay!

      Chant and meditate more to get a peaceful mind. I seldom do that though, I just walk to a corner and keep quiet - a time out for myself. Otherwise I'll keep nagging and bragging; which causes all parties to get upset.

      Annay is right, stress is the culprit to all types of cancer.

      Delete
    7. I cannot meditate. My mind sure works overtime when I'm sitting still and not doing anything.

      I really cannot empty my mind one.

      But I find going out for a loooooong run is a stress reliever and the endorphins produced during the run caused me to be more relaxed and happier. :)

      It's my meditation while being on the move, I guess.

  3. Only difference is, ogling at food models don't make you look awkward as when you ogle at body parts.

    Indeed, these food models are highly commendable.

  4. SK, you should sign up the art craft lesson that my girls attended once in a month. My girls too enjoy their art craft lesson very much. They colourful clay to make lots of things. Currently April is working on a birthday cake, May is working on little things like sushi or Angry Birds. I always complain don't know where to keep those craft work. Next time, I just sent to you as Christmas present, since you like these so much.

    1. My son also loves arts & craft.

      But he doesn't go to classes.

      He learnt them from youtube.

      Delete
    2. My kids love art craft lesson and I have yet to register them. The idea of using the food models at restaurants is very good, as people are easily influenced visually :)

      Otherwise, how do you think AV and porns are so laku? Kakakaka!

      Delete
    3. hahaha,...good idea wor for having SK sign up for craft lesson but then he might ask us to pay for his lessons as New year pressie :p

  5. No plastic or rubber stuff for me, please...I want THE REAL THING! Nom...nom...nom!!!!

    1. Then RM39.90, please. I suspect the models would cost more after all we're paying for the artistry.

      Delete
    2. Those plastic models cost more than real food tau!

      I wanted to buy some and bring back as souvenirs but then decided, might as well spent the money on the real stuff that I can eat! Bwahaha

      Delete
    3. Enroll yourself in the art craft lesson, Lina. No need to spend $$ buying from Japan.

      The tutor will teaches you to mold and shape whatever you want. Maybe you'll get yourself a fake boobs and transform into a BBW by wearing it, LOL~

  7. I also love to admire those fake food on displays. They definitely lure people to eat. Photos no longer work these days!

    1. In Japan almost all restaurants have to display their menu this way using fake dummies. We all stood there admiring them for a long time and took over 100 photos! Too nice to look at and they even have shops selling fake food dummies for you to buy & display at your shop!

      Delete
    2. Many restaurants in Osaka used these food displays to fill whole big walls like a piece of wall mural of contemporary Art. Nice!

      Delete
    3. Thambee your photo really looked like real food. I thought you curi snap them inside supermarket shelves.

      Delete
    4. actually this type of display is very nice..
      They could make it like real and at least we can see the pictures instead of just the name in the menu.

      Delete
    5. Anay, not only is Osaka.

      All over Japan also got shops with top to bottom food display.

      Look at plastic also can drool. hahaha

      Delete
    6. Hahaha, look at the plastic food and hear our tummy rumbles. It's certainly a very efficient way to attract their customers.

      Visualization is very important, mah~ SK also know, "men looking at a lady's boobs", and he missed out the vital point that after looking at boobs, men will get so-high :p

      Delete
    7. Japanese restaurant are the first that come out with this model food display leh.

      The ones that Sk took are very real lookin but got some the display not that real. really admire those art master

  8. Indeed they look so real. I also like to admire the craftmanship. They are so perfectly made.

  9. I think it is good idea to have that.
    Previously a lot of restaurant are using the real one and put as a display..
    then end of the day they will throw it

    1. You sure or not restaurants are using the real food? Or the fake ones already con you kau-kau?

      I was stupid last time thinking that the real food was on display. But I realized my mistake very fast, ahem~ Not that stupid though.

      Delete
  10. it's more convenient for the store owner to puts such display. imagine if they put up real food display? that would be costly, I think.

    1. Not to mention a waste as after it is done being a display, will anyone eat it?

  13. Well i guess thats a cooler and a better way
    to present a menu,
    i mean actual and 3d appearance is
    more appealing than photos and words

    ReplyDelete
  14. I must say i was fooled by that at first i thought it was real foods
    i must say who ever did this was a real artist

    ReplyDelete
  15. I saw some bakery that shows some fake cake models
    but what we have here was something un realistic
    it was just made for people to see some
    designs they might want

    ReplyDelete
  16. I just hope that if ever restaurant
    would do such thing they should show the actual and the real amount of serving and the appearance
    un like those they were having on advertisement photos

    1. One thing I can say about food industry in Japan, WYSIWYG really applies.

      What you see on display is most probably almost 100% what you'll be presented on your table. Really!

      Well, maybe except McD and all those fast food places lah. But those aren't Japanese.

      I'm talking about mom & pop Japanese restaurant in Japan. ^^

      Delete
    2. ohh i see what we have here are the opposite you'll be pleased with the ads but ended up disappointed about the food itself

      Delete
    3. ya...usually the food will be like whatever on display. in the portion as well as in the colour

      Delete
  17. I wonder what materials they used for those
    models, i mean i could be polymer clay of
    Styrofoam
    Its hard to determine because it seems so real

    ReplyDelete
  18. it may deceive you even if it was put
    on a table together with real foods,
    i may pick that instead of real one haha

    1. having said that it could be some sort of a game right? haha the one you get to pick the fake food loses and vise versa

  31. Talking about this type of clay craft. My two girls realy enjoy it. The clay isn't cheap. I spent a lot on it. I need to find place to keep those clay work. Sometimes, when I wasn't in good mood, I would say things like stopping to send them to clay craft class. Now I think I should continue to send them there. Since SK values this clay craft work so much.
