10 Things I Love - Food Edition

Thank you Lei for tagging me to write about "10 Things I Love". Since i've done this post before, I decided to do one focused on one of the things I love most - FOOD!

I used to be a really picky eater when I was a kid especially when I was culture shocked from my move from Hong Kong to Canada. In Hong Kong, I was used to eating rice and noodles, not sandwiches, salads, wraps and other 'north american food'. I didn't like spices, sauces, and anything "out of the ordinary"(yes, i considered salad out of the ordinary) I'm happy to say that i've since expanded my horizons in the food world! :P

Were you a picky eater as a child? 

Below are just some of my faves!

What are your favorite foods?

Kalmo said...

You always have such cool graphics on your posts. Great collage of yummy foods. My favorite foods are sushi, pho, and tofu soup.

RicAdeMus said...

I love deep fried tofu--and most of the other things on your list too.

I was hoping you'd do at least one more post to which I could again use the "adams apple" comment, but the string ended @ 2. =)

Omgoodness... I've been eating so much food all day I seriously am tired of eating hahaha. But I love food so once that full feeling is gone, I'll be searching for something else to eat. Haha. There's too many to name the foods I like. So I can only narrow it down to delicious-tasting foods. LoL

Kathleen said...

Omg Kym so dangerous to look at your blog at this hour LOL. My favourite food? Hmmmm sushi! and homecooked meals. Oh and Singaporean food without a doubt :) I can't wait for Asia for all the cheap eats!!!

MizzJ said...

What a delicious post (you know someone had to say it). Mmm okonomiyaki is a good choice! I don't eat it often enough to name it as a fav though. I think my favs are include, but are not limited to Chinese steamed meats, stuffed tofu, spaghetti, cheesecake, and mango!

hellomissa said...

Every blog that I've read today talked about food! I AM NOW A HUNGRY HIPPO!
Yum yum yum yum

MissA* said...

Kym, it's 9:45am here in Europe and I only had my morning coffee so far. You're making me so hungry!! I love food in general. When I was a child, I refused to eat cheese and I said tomatoes were for aliens. I only started eating tomatoes in my early 20s (and I love them!). Now I'm a big fan of cheeses - French, Dutch, Swiss! Yum! The only 2 things I still hate are green capsicums and olives.

LiezyL said...

im never a picky eater!
if its edible, ill put it in my mouth!

suki pooki said...

I was an extremely picky eater when I was a child and I still am HAHAHA I know it's horrible but honestly, if I don't like onions I rather tell the kitchen that so they don't waste onions by putting it onto my dish! If I don't finish my food bf always uses the same guilt trip that works....sometimes "think of the kids in africa" <--- GAH it really gets to me T_T

Being raised in a purely chinese family that never had much american food, I also didn't have anything out of the ordinary! It wasn't till after high school when I started to discover ceasar salad and other various yummy dishes that I consider "normal" now in my diet LOL That's another thing I love about Vancouver, we have a huge diversity of foods to try!!!

Khlaren said...

I wasn't a picky eater back then but I think now I'm starting to be! -_- Haha! I'm starting to hate the food I used to love! And I don't even know why :\ :)))

Nikolett said...

Oh my gooosh it's all so yellow and flavourful and awesome and and and *droooooooooooool* - when we meet up, can we please indulge in some amazing food ... followed by a long walk so I don't get 4 lbs? LOL I used to really dislike vegetables (like broccoli) but now I'm getting a soft spot for 'em.

Yeri said...

Yum!! I need to go eat breakfast and you're making me very hungry! It's so hard for me to narrow down my food choices to a dish but I can tell you I love Korean food, Thai food, Vietnamese food, burgers and pasta. Yep - I think that covers it!

Codeine said...

I like it :)

mizzsandychau said...

Hazel☺ said...

yikes! this post made me hungry at 12 midnight! LOL!!! :) glad to know you expanded your food horizon... as for me.. i think i need to eat more veggies! not that i don't like it, but i'm picky on what veggies to eat haha

Dirt On The Rocks said...

Ive experienced some culture shock myself so I definitely was a picky eater growing up. I didn't even start eating "sushi" til about 2 yrs. ago and the only raw thing I'll eat is spicy tuna, haha. I barely starting eating veggies a couple mos. ago lol !

CHAOTIC COOKIE said...

Helloooo stranger! YES i still remember you, you silly. I love all of your funny but meaningful stories. I see your tshirt business is growing, yay!

I was a picky eater when I was young but nothing crazy but I have embraced most foods now, which is weird but it works!

Hi kym! I was a picky eater as a child, but I now can eat if the food is good for my health. LoL

I feel old if I talk too much about health, but that's the point I eat or not. haha

I am actually a picky eater, and you will find this weird but I don't put condiments on my food like soy sauce or vinegar or whatever. I am okay with the food being cooked with them, but don't dip the food into them, if you know what I mean. My friends say that's boring, but that's the way I like it :D

On the other hand, I LOVE CAKES and fro-yo and candies and donuts and other kinds of sweets that are actually unhealthy in the long run om nom nom :D

Steph said...

YUM i'm a very picky eater, not a fan of green onions, raw onions (only in some korean foods =]), peppers and such

But I LOVEEEE soon tofu, takoyaki, fried tofu, butter chicken and TONS more lol

Winnie* said...

I love poutine too but I am a huge fan or ramen. Both fresh and instant ones haha. I stopped eating noodles when I was in high school but then moving from Hong Kong makes me fall back in love with ramen lol. Seeing that mango picture reminded me I love fruits a lot too hahaha oh man I love this post!

Trish said...
