I love food, you love food, I think everybody loves food! Right?
This year's Blog Action Day coincides with World Food Day, so we're gonna be talking about food~ :D
Thanks to my dad, I have been trained to be a foodie since young. What kind of training? Well, besides the (obvious) fact of trying out all kinds of food wherever we went, we took it further by going all the way up North and down South just to have yummy food around Malaysia. Not only that, we also go over the causeway to have our favourite foods in Singapore!
My food journey from then till now has been nothing short of delicious. XD Of course, there were some misses along the way, with bad service and really awful cooking sometimes souring our appetites, but it has been an amazing experience, and one I hope will never end.
From roast pork noodles in Petaling Jaya...
..."lao shu fen" in Seremban...
...satay celup in Melaka...
...salted egg crabs in Batu Pahat, Johor....
...to black pepper crabs and satay bihun in Singapore...
...it's no wonder I am the size I am today! LOL As long as it is good food, we would not hesistate to travel long distances just to have a taste ourselves.
I am really thankful that I live in Malaysia, where good food is everywhere. We get to enjoy food from foreign countries and cultures, some which tantalise our tastebuds so much that we keep coming back for more. :)

|Western chicken and mushroom pie|

Food is not only a necessity for us now; it has become a culture. Through food, we can have endless conversation topics, make new friends, discover new (and sometimes horrible) experiences, and generally enjoy the whole process.

Let us take this opportunity to be thankful for the food that we enjoy every single day. Be it a simple breakfast in an old-fashioned kopitiam, or a fancy dinner in a high class restaurant, we are much more fortunate than 1.4billion people in the world, who live in hunger and poverty daily.
So, next time you decide to order more than you can
