This is a collection of stories I’ve come up with in my feeble attempt to convince you there’s more to my life than food. I may have or will inevitably fail at it but at least you know I really tried.
Food. It always comes back to food.
However, if you’re looking for forty different ways to describe how tender the meat is, you’ve come to the wrong blog.
I am not all-knowing when it comes to food. But if you want to know if it’s good, or it’s bad, or it just needs a little more sauce, I’m your girl. My palette is ordinary, mediocre at best. I have the tastebuds of a girl who grew up eating brown, soy-sauce drenched Filipino food. I spent a good part of my childhood weekends in Binondo. MSG is considered vitamins in my family until it got a bad street rep. I live for liempo. I’d zone in on the porkiest thing on the menu. Always.
I always thought food is very personal and extremely subjective. What may seems delicious for me, might be (probably is) a tad bit salty for you. I am not cut out for in depth reviews and critique. There are far better food bloggers for that. Food, for me, is experiential. It’s the experiences that lead you to that meal, the memories you make and the ones that you keep, and in the case of this blog, share.
Actually, you think this is a food blog, but if you hang out here long enough, you know I’m just someone who has a lot of words to say. You think I’ll be talking about the food, but not really. Sorry, not sorry.
Just in case you’re wondering…
1. All photos are shot here from a Fuji x100, or an iphone or more recently, a Fuji x70. And I edit them ALL. My view on Photoshop/editing is much like my view towards food, or pretty much everything else — it’s okay when done in moderation.
2. I have an iphone for the instagram photos. My editing app of choice is VSCOcam.
3. I also use my Fuji x100 or Fuji x70 for the videos, and I edit using Final Cut Pro X. My super sexy MBA can take it.
I have a quota of 2 selfies a year. I never reach my quota. I have a super secret snapchat account that I won’t own up to.
5. If you’d like to reach me, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
