Pei | Foodi-Byte
@ Bay Area CA
An engineer who likes food, cooking and photography.
WHO AM I?
I am Pei. I was born and raised in a Ipoh, a food paradise in Malaysia. I went to the midwest in United States for my studies and decided to move to Bay Area to explore the other parts of United States.
WHAT DO I LIKE?
- FOOD (including COOKING, COFFEE)
I know it sounds like a lot but I always believe that there is a link between three of them. As my slogan aka my belief, food brings people together and photography helps to connect the stories. To enjoy the food, of course you will need a good recipe, which cultivates the creativity. Besides that, travel is necessarily for me to understand the culture of certain community. Of course, I take that as opportunity for food exploration 🙂
HOW DID I START FALLING IN LOVE WITH COOKING?
As I mentioned, I was from a food paradise, always pampered with various options. However, when I went to college, I was abroad and I missed home. I had neither options or stipend for fancy food, not to mention my hometown food. This TRIGGERED my interests to start satisfying my own tastebud with my own cooking.
WHAT ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY?
I would not admit that I am a professional photographer. However, I enjoy taking photos. I believe that a good photograph not only records the moment as a memory but at the same time, it captures the soul of the object, regardless living or non-living things. I find it very interesting and would like to explore my own photography style, a way to convey my message to the people through the viewfinder.
I believe that human’s palate is like a colorful palette. Filling them with various color combinations signify different flavors. The more I cook, the more I realize that , in cooking, we just have to be imaginative and be adventurous to try things! Whether it works or not, it will always bring satisfaction.
Regardless the pass-fail of the results, in my perspective, those can be utilized as references to the readers, or sometimes even learn from people.
I hope that FooDi-byte will be not only my own little passion projects, but also allow you to discover what fuels and motivate you in life.
