About the blogger
I’m Eugene, a Computer Science graduate from the University of the East. I’m currently working at a Japanese Printing Company.
When I get a chance, on my free time, I schedule food trips with friends. GOOD COMPANY + GOOD FOOD = AWESOME Combination. I’m a shameless meat lover and a firm believer that EVERYTHING is better with Bacon.
What is the inspiration behind your blog and how long has it been around?
I’ve been doing food trips on a regular basis, even before I started the blog. For the longest time I didn’t want to start blogging because I feared that no one would gain interest in my posts. But I love eating, and I’d like to share my dining experiences so I started the blog.
My blog’s quite new, I only started last January, and I have tried Blogger and Wordpress (wordpress.com -free) but I now have a self-hosted wordpress.org site. Thanks to a kind writer that gained interest in my work.
How did you get into blogging?
Definitely because of my friends’ suggestions and because of the food photography. Though taking pictures of food for a blog is a bit different because most often than not, you don’t have control over lighting and some other stuff. And I find it really challenging, attempting to make a really pleasing shot. The aim is to make the reader want to lick the screen because of the picture. But so far, I think I haven’t really achieved
What is your favorite blog post and why?
Scrumptious Lunch at Mesa Filipino Moderne, Greenbelt 5, It is my post about Mesa Filipino Moderne at Greenbelt 5. The lighting back then was great and it’s evident on the pictures, and I’m quite happy with the shots I got. Plus Mesa’s actually one of my favorite restaurants.
