about this blog + to contact me

thank you for visiting yum yum in the tum tum!

* yumyuminthetumtum.com was created in nov, 2008 (still fairly new :p) as a personal food blog to archive my gastronomic adventure around (and sometimes out of) los angeles, simply to help me remember where+what i’ve eaten, and where/what i should remember not to order again.  …and occasionally blog food that i made at home.

* i grew up with a mom who doesn’t cook, and we’ve always had a family home chef in the house doing all the cooking for us. my dad traveled alot, so having a delicious home cooked meal and dining out at restaurants was one of the way he spent time with us children, and i’d always cherished those moments. i only started cooking occasionally when i moved to the u.s. and after my nanny left. so i won’t pretend to be a food writer/food critic/’foodie’ per se… i just enjoy a good meal with friends and love trying out different kinds of food. i’ve been snapping shots of food dishes we had/have from most of our food outings since 2003. i used to archive them at kodak gallery to share with friends. i figure with so many food pics, maybe it’s a good time to start archiving them in a blog to share with anyone who’s interested in viewing/reading them (though i might be slow in updating the posts due to work schedule, or maybe pure laziness :p)

* i document my personal experience as honestly and as detailed as my memory holds at that particular moment, and when reading my blog, please remember that my (and/or my friends’) taste palette might not be agreeable with yours.

* all comments are moderated. no spamming please. thanks!

* if you would like to contact me (for collaborations/contributions/invitations/to use my photos, etc.), please do so via the comment box, include what it’s regard to, and an email where you would like me to reply to. thanks. :) any personal info (eg. emails) provided will not be published, so don’t worry. :)

* when i’m not food blogging here or looking for more yumyum in the tumtum, i daydream, i visit galleries/museums, i volunteer, i capture visual memories (photographs), i sketch/make/design things, i dream (alot!), i take naps on floating clouds, and i take long walks with my dog. enjoying life’s daily simple pleasures is my way of happiness! :)

cameras used
* i use a canon rebel xt or the 50D for all the shots taken at home. non-at-home photos were either taken with the same rebel xt or 50D, or my nikon coolpix p&s, …ooor to avoid unwanted attention (from both the biz owners and/or customers) i use my iphone for those quick quiet snaps. ;)

the serious bit…
