Waiter finally brings in food after so many minutes of waiting...
Me: "Ok, let's eat." (sticks fork into food)
Local: "We haven't taken pictures of our food yet."
Takes out iphone, snaps several photos, posts to Facebook, writes a caption.

btw i haven't done the fb thing yet. if i really wanted to, i'd do the fb thing afterward...don't want my food to get too cold.
Back to the original topic, @NR8 - the ciabatta and lobster looks yummylicious. i'm a big fan of ciabatta

don't stereotype sgporeans too quickly. I LOVE to cook (i'm local) and have 2 kitchens. but i admit that i get a lot of pretty annoying qns fr locals "why do you cook when it's so cheap to eat outside?" or "isnt it troublesome to wash dishes & clean up?"
anywy since you're wondering y we like to take photos, i personally am a foodie and like to take pics of food i eat, to remember the taste and how it looked. Esp if i know i'm not going to have it again or for a long time. Recently went to Italy and may not be able to return for a few years. (i usually don't take pics of food in Singapore as i think i can have it anytime - recently found that's not true - standards drop, and one of my fav pubs with great bar food closed down and so i'll prob start bringing my camera out.). Anywy the pics serve to retain good memories (i have a short term memory these days) and make me salivate (sorry to be gross) each time i see it. when i see a pic i took, i'm usually like "OMG that tasted so good, it melted in my mouth, how i'd love to have it again soon!".
so hope this answers yr qns...
I mean this in the most loving and endearing way but when it comes to Singaporeans and kitchens, you're part of the exception. . I don't think the people I encountered have the same reasons.
