There is this awesome phrase in the Korean language that’s used instead of asking “how are you today?”.
It is: “Have you eaten already?”. At first it might just sound like any other greeting, but it’s easier to say “Hi, yeah I’m good. All’s cool.” than “Yes. I’ve eaten. I’m all ok.”
After all, food is essential for us, so even if you’d try to hide it and avoid an honest answer, your facial impression will show if you’re really not hungry.
To me ” Have you eaten already?” shows this one more grain of interest in the other person.
What I’m planning to do here:
There are millions of food bloggers out there. There are zillions of recipe creators out there. There are even more people out there who take amazing food pictures out there. Shockingly, I learned that many of these food-photo-bloggers don’t even eat everything they order….I’ve actually seen it with my own eyes here in the City. More than once or twice. Something that wouldn’t happen to me. Seriously.
So, am I trying to line up behind all these great food bloggers?
-Nope. Why not? Well firstly, I am not a constant enough blogger. Secondly, I’m not the greatest photographer.
Well, does that mean I’m going to write down my home cocking recipes down here?
-Hell, NO! I’m a horrible cook. As much as I love to eat good food. Homecooking for me is only a tool to surviving. The taste is average or below. The visuals are mostly saddening.
However, I will write about food! Sometimes.
I’ll make this blog a
1) “Home Cooking Diary” to keep me motivated in my (tiiiiny) kitchen.
2) Eating out in Tokyo Diary for me and those who cope with lazy bloggers.
and almost most importantly 3)Travelling!!!
I mean, let’s be honest. Travelling=Eating eating and eating! Food is the better language! It tells you so very much about the culture that you’re visiting. It can help you connecting where language fails you. Food is good!
I want to keep a record of what came across the tables I was sitting at in the different places.
