I have always loved eating out at nice restaurants. Who doesn't like a day-off from cooking, right? (all of my stay-at-home moms say Amen!) haha. However, I don't get to do it very often, because well, it's costly (even if you eat at a fast food restaurant everyday, it's still more expensive than cooking at home!). So when I do go out to eat, I want to eat good food. When I was younger, I went out to lunch/ brunch/ or dinner to talk and to be seen. But now, I come to restaurants to eat, and more importantly to feed my son. So I'm a bit picky with my restaurant choices. I don't go to a restaurant just because it's popular. Because, sometimes, it could be pricy, but the food is so-so (although it has a good ambiance, that still pisses Mr. Man off like crazy!). We try our best to only go to restaurants that are worth going to. Sometimes we fail, because we were being fooled by a review we saw online, written by a person who has a different preference and taste than us. Well, that bounds to happen when you depend on other people's review right? But hey, can't blame them. I also write my own review in this blog every now and then, but I've never considered myself as a food critic. I mean, why would you want to criticize food? Haha. If you don't want to eat it, leave it alone!
Anyways, 2 weeks ago, I was approached by a lady from Zomato. We then met for lunch last week and she invited me to join the app and to write my reviews there. Oh, I thought, why not?! I love to eat, I love to take good photos of what I eat, so let's do this! But I knew I gotta do something different here. I'm not just gonna be another foodie-wannabe in this city. I want to have a 'signature'.
So I came up with Tiffy & Goldies!
They are these bamboo cutleries that I personally dipped in tiffany blue and gold paint. From now on, every food or restaurant-related photos that you see on my blog and my instagram would have these cuties in them.
So what is Zomato, you ask? It's this app that helps you search for restaurants around your neighborhood (or anywhere you like, they have offices in 22 countries already). Unlike Yelp, Zomato has a more elegant design with cleaner layout. It is also more reliable as its team hand-collects each menu from every restaurant that they review, so it does not depend on people (like wikipedia) and therefore is more accurate. They also collect official photos from the restaurants (by permission only).
I am excited to start posting my reviews and photos on the app. If you want to view my profile, follow me, and connect with me via the app, click here.
