Hello there! Since this post is my first ever blog post, I feel some sort of inclination to write a little introduction. But, just like writing an essay, the intro is always the most dreaded and the most difficult part to write for me. So I will keep this very brief since I’m having a Julie Powell moment (Julie & Julia,) and I’m wondering if anyone, apart from my mom, is reading this. (Hi, mom!)
I would not call myself a die-hard foodie because my culinary spectrum is somewhat limited since I have many dishes that I cannot and will not eat, namely any animal that swims. Although every time I tell someone this, the common response is usually: “Pig can swim too, you know?” But I dare to disagree! Apart from Babe, the talking pig, I’ve never seen a swimming pig before. So, yes, I do eat pork. Anyway, back to the point of this paragraph -although I’m not a foodie, I live, think, breathe food. I wake up thinking about what I will be baking today, I think about dinner as soon as I finished lunch, and I go to bed thinking (and probably dreaming) about what I am going to eat tomorrow. So I would just call myself a food addict. And, hey, that’s not such a bad addiction to have, right?
Another annoying habit of mine would be documenting every single dish I eat before taking a bite anywhere and everywhere. Those who know me well have gotten so used to giving me a moment after the dish has arrived, to take a picture, no matter how starving they are. (And I love you all for that =) ) If only my skin was a little bit thicker, I would probably start taking pictures of dishes on other people’s tables too. But don’t worry; I’m not that crazy…yet. But I have to admit that I’m more addicted to my camera than my blackberry. Therefore, I guess it’s about time that I do something with the gazillion food pictures that I have on my laptop. Although I’m nowhere near being a good writer, I will try my best to share all my gastronomic delights with you all. So please ENJOY!

Ma Chérie, Congratulations! I’m so glad you started this blog. I’m confident you’ll have millions of interesting ideas and things to share. You’ve had real passion for food especially pastries since a very young age. You once told me “It must be wonderful to own a place where people could have a really good time, sitting in beautiful surroundings, having good foods and receiving good services.”. You were only 8 !. So this blog could be the start of your beautiful place where people could learn about good foods, nice places and how to enjoy life. Best wishes for a successful and enjoyable endeavour. Love. Mae
