"Food porn is a glamourised spectacular visual presentation of cooking or eating in advertisements. infomercials, cooking shows or other visual media, foods boasting a high fat and calorie content, exotic dishes that arouse a desire to eat or the glorification of food as a substitute for sex. Food porn often takes the form of food photography and styling that presents food provocatively, in a similar way to glamour photography or pornographic photography."
One day, the team of FoodPorn website wrote to me inviting my Grilled Salmon with Butter Sauce to join their website publication. I just couldn't believe that such a humble photo of mine would qualify but nevertheless submitted as requested. At the same time I felt quite embarrass to compare to many other photos which are far more superior in quality and wittiness of the participating blogs. My photos were often just a candid shot with not much preparation and planning due to my limited time in preparing dinner after office hours. I also felt that I do not babble enough perhaps and usually just put few sentences accrossed - it all I can afford to do in limited time of my daily life that I have and to balance with other priorities in life....
Blogging makes me happy and relief much stress.... the joy of sharing and able to contribute to other happiness.... the joy of extending network beyond my physical contacts..... the joy of receiving appreciation and friendship..... and so on. I am so delighted that been accepted to join the rest of the world in such a high profile food website..... thank-you so much to Ms Nina for the invite and appreciation of my humble site.
