I was running through some of my older photo folders (since I am so free, right?) and I was reminded of my post Bad Photography #1. In that post I recalled my early blogging days.
Those days I published my posts with hideous cringe inducing photos. I had no choice because I did not have the right tools and I did not posses any knowledge on how to shoot a good photo.
OK. What is this? Looks like it has crystallized sugar all over it.
It's crystallized ginger, something I made to take part in the Little Thumbs Up blog hop event. It was through such blog hop events that I learnt new recipes and discovered new things such as this crystallized ginger.
Gawd... What on earth is that??
It's quite tasty in spite looking like a mess. That's Honey Ginger Chicken, a dish I attempted also for the same blog hop event. Geez... I should cook this again.
This one is a very ugly looking sandwich with a very delicious filling.
It's a sandwich filled with Avocado Egg Salad. I have always loved avocado and eggs together. So creamy, so delicious, so nyum!
You can tell this one is a cake right? A chocolate cake topped with chocolate ganache and studded with hazelnuts. At least that's still recognizable.
This here cake I tell you is Nigella Lawson's Nutella Cake. It's a delicious cake rendered visually unappetizing due to my brilliant photography skills.
I re-attempted this Nutella Cake two years later and there was no improvement in the photography hah..hah... I even managed to mess up the chocolate ganache. Haiz...
This is another classic example of me murdering another fantastic chocolate cake photographically speaking.
This Buttermilk Chocolate Cake with Chopped Pecans is truly decadent and I would like to bake it again and hopefully this time produce a better looking photo.
Good grief! Is that a Tiramisu? Oh yes, an ugly one.
It was from one of my earlier attempts at making Tiramisu, a dessert that I have made many many times. I did manage a much prettier Tiramisu earlier this year.
I did not have much luck with cheesecake either.
This Coconut Pandan Cheesecake has been in my all time favorites sidebar for the longest time in spite of it's Incredible Hulk look. It was for another Little Thumbs Up event with a big thumbs down for my photography skills.
What is this? Can see pumpkin.
It's Chicken and Pumpkin with Taucheow, a recipe I adapted from my mum's Chicken with Yam. Come to think of it I have not cooked this dish in a long time. I can't even remember what it tastes like.
Alamak. This one looks like a proper disaster.
Ah! Another recipe of my mum's, visually murdered. Mummy's Ginger Chicken, a regular on my mum's menu when I was growing up. This dish never grows old.
And finally, let me gift you with this long lost photo of a chicken inadvertently looking like it is wearing a (black) bra.
