Waiter finally brings in food after so many minutes of waiting...

Me: "Ok, let's eat." (sticks fork into food)
Local: "WAAAAIIIIIITTTT!!!!"
Me: "Wh-What?"
Local: "We haven't taken pictures of our food yet."

Takes out iphone, snaps several photos, posts to Facebook, writes a caption.

Local: "Ok, let's eat."


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. :P

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 :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. :cry: (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 :cry: 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!". :love:

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. :P. I don't think the people I encountered have the same reasons. :twisted:
