Ode to food

Photo taken during a food trip in Binondo, Manila.

I'm a 100% foodie.   Whenever I travel, local delicacies are always part of the itinerary.  Discovering new dishes excite me in the same way old favorites never fail to satisfy my palettes.

Recently, my friend, Sheilla, asked me to help her start a food blog.  I rarely post restaurant reviews (except when I'm really impressed with the place), but while I was constructing my friend's blog, I was inspired to post my shelved photos of one of the most pleasure-inducing things in the world--FOOD!

Some of the photos, I've already forgotten when and where I took.  But then again, details don't matter once your mouth starts to water ;)
