“Eat rice. Thatâ€™s what my mom says every night when our family gathers around the table for dinner. Though, if I were to be completely true to my Chinese roots, ‘sick fann’ is what she really says.
My obsession with documenting food a la Canon PowerShot started in 2004. While away for college in San Francisco, I discovered a whole new world of restaurants, eateries and hole-in-the-wall places that offered up dishes a local girl like me had never even heard of. So I snapped away, taking pics of the new adventures my taste buds embarked on, and never looked back.
Here I am, seven years later, still chronicling every appetizer, side salad, main dish and dessert. Only this time, itâ€™s not just for me. Many of my local friends stayed on the mainland and only visit twice a year. And when youâ€™re only home for a short time, you want to make sure you eat â€“ and eat good.
The Eat Rice blog makes it happen. Here, I let the photos do all the talking.”
