While having lunch at Jack's place @ 1-Utama this afternoon, hubby remarked on the lack of food posts in my blog. He said that looking at my blog, he felt that we've been fasting and haven't eaten for a long, long while. "Haven't we agreed on using the blog to mark our food journey so that when we are old and have lost our grinders, we could walk down memory lane and relive the experience of the enjoyment of food?" he asked.
You see, he was inspired by his boss, Tan Sri, who wanted to leave a legacy when he dies. But unlike Tan Sri, we can't afford to build a brick and mortar public gallery to hold all our photos of our younger days when we could still eat, live and enjoy life, so the next best thing is to leave a blog. Who knows, someone 100 years from now might be surprised at the type of food in the 'dark ages'. At any rate, there's something to remember when we're taking turns to use the dentures.
Coming back to the arid period of no food blogs. Well, the reason is, some photos didn't turn out that well. Or more accurately, the food was so appetizing, or we were so hungry that we started on the food before I remembered to take any photos. The result is, I have loads of photos of half eaten burgers, half eaten cods, and so on. Besides, after some time, I might have deleted the photos from my camera's memory card.
To prove my point, below are a couple of hastily taken photos. A few weeks ago (unless time flies and it's longer than I remember) we had a really, really nice lunch at Healy Mac's, an Irish Bar and Restaurant at Changkat Bukit Bintang.
For the starter, we ordered a plate of salmon bruschetta to share (it came in 5 pieces) and a plate of cod & parsley, in mushroom sauce. We then shared a plate of bacon and egg burger for the entree.
The half-eaten cod and the remaining piece of salmon bruschetta was put together on a plate for a last minute photo-shoot. That's why I don't make the mark of a food blogger. The cod was heavenly. And so was the salmon bruschetta.
Just recalling the taste is enough to set me drooling. Well, at least, when we're 70 and toothless, we could still eat the cod, but definitely not the salmon bruschetta.
The half-eaten (again!) bacon and egg burger
I know it's weird, but today's meal at Jack's Place will be postponed to tomorrow. First things first.....to prove a point why I didn't update our 'Eating Out Memory Lane' with all the photos I've taken.
