PHOTOGRAPHY

Although my blog title  proclaims me as the foodie I am, there are other things besides edible things that interest me...seriously. And one of those is photography, not because I'm any good at it myself but I've studied it and am appreciative of other people's talent.




So I propose to do a stretch of photography-relate posts highlighting the work of those people (not exactly Cartier-Bresson, Raghu Rai & Arthur Tress, whose work I admire) who, in my opinion, make beautiful pictures. I promise to upload my own pictures at some point as well (for you to point & laugh at) but for now....let's just focus on those actually talented in the art!!!

Craved A Club Sandwich...Got A Cheap Imitation

The title is pretty self-explanatory. I carried 2 egg & sausage sandwiches for lunch today (was feeling extremely lazy) and since my tum's a bottomless pit, I was hungry long before tea-time. So, I decided to call in for a couple of club sandwiches (I think I'm overdosing on bread). Only...there's no such thing where I'm at, and I ended up with a sad excuse for one.

This is what I needed:-

Sometimes, life just likes to have a laugh while you starve to death.

Why Indianized Oriental Food is Bad for your health

"But it's Chinese!!! How can you not like Chinese?!!" "Uhm...because I've been to China and this tastes nothing like their food. Infact, they would probably want to sue you for defamation, on account of your claiming that this inedible garbage is theirs!!"

Seriously though, there's no comparison and no better way to show you exactly what I mean than through visuals.

What I ate looked like this:  


















And it tasted like slimy cardboard.

This is what it's supposed to look like:
















Simple but absolutely slurrpalicious. I'd be willing to pay whatever amount for something this delish!

So, our lesson for today is 'If you want Chinese food, GO TO CHINA!!!'
