Sunday Breakfasting Vegetarian at Likha

    The tag “lifestyle choices” came up in the wordpress tag box when i finished typing (it’s robot-generated — these robots are learning to think)

… so i’m using it.

“Lifestyle Choices”

Sunday breakfasting vegetarian at Likha,  today’s morning buffet:

                7am to 10am:

Tahó (beancurd with syrup or beancurd pudding), seafood palabok (seafood Chinese noodles), red eggs (preserved eggs), and more.

        for 10am-1pm: 

tinuktok na tofu (crushed or pressed tofu), vegetarian mechado, meatloaf pakora (meatloaf Indian fritter), crispy fish fillet, mixed seafoods, tuna teriyaki, frozen fruit salad…now you know what i’m having.

Breakfast places are good business in the city — Filipinos have come to like to breakfast out or to hold breakfast meets/ reunions/ dates/ powwows/ eyeballs/ in transit to work/ lounge…

to write/ surf/ type up excel files over breakfast…

Call center agents and other night workers unwind/ date/ socialize over pre-dawn breakfast — well, it’s only technically breakfast, for the inverted circadian rhythm, it’s late dinner.

Day- people perk themselves up on their way to work over brisk latté,  or conclude contracts over eggs overeasy.

How could i tell which ones just came from work and which ones are going to work? You could tell — of course! Okay… Trade secret. From their eyes.

 There’s a sense of accomplishment when you finish sumthin’ very early in the morning …

Such perfect timing!

    i started to practise my food plating photography this week!

     Here’s my first ever food plate photo, shot perpendicularly or at a 90-degree-angle from the plate, for the weekly photo challenge, plus…

     …to start a new “genre”, the blog will be including the creator of the food plate (presumably, also the chef) — wouldn’t you want a photo of the chef or the cook with the food photograph?

   Here’s to a new “genre”:

      My Food Plating Photography 101… with the creator-chef
1fromabove…and the chef, meditatively plating my breakfast last Monday (let’s start a new “genre” by including a photo of the creator of the food plate)


hope you like the new “genre”: food plate and the chef. Happy weekend!
