This Morning, Last Week

This morning last week I did some shots of my breakfast just before I spent my Sunday outside. All were taken on top of my bed, carrying my too-heavy DIY wooden board, scattered all the pillows. I admit, I need some new props!

Fine Breakfast

There is something that made me soooo lazy to cook lately. I don’t know what, but I guess I feel a bit homesick. I miss a moment when I go home and find delicious foods on the table cooked by my Mom (now, this sounds I’m homesick indeed). To be honest, I feel it’s not an easy thing living outside country when I have to prepare everything every day. But I just have to do it and stop grumbling, yes? :)

Instead, I want to share some shots I did this morning. A fine breakfast with chocolate croissant a.k.a pain au chocolat and hello for berries! Nice to see you again :)

Was my tummy full by having breakfast above? Nope! lol. But I love those berries, even they’re become more expensive nowadays but it’s always nice to pamper yourself with fruitful food right? :)

I’ll make one confession here, I was a bit late leaving my apartment this morning because of those photographs cause I had to wait for minutes to get enough light (cloudy morning go away!). Then, what happened with the foods? I enjoyed the croissant on my way to the office while I packed the fruits in a jar :P.

Currently, I’ve been trying to wake up earlier so I have time to sit down and enjoy my breakfast without busy taking picture. To be honest, it’s really good sitting and enjoying the meal, forget about food photography (I’m kidding :), how can I resist beautiful breakfast and good lighting?). But sure, enjoying breakfast in a proper way is very important to start your day guys. This reminds me how I enjoyed a fine Swedish breakfast on Friday morning at Fika last year in Singapore. I loved their homemade sausages (even I’m not a sausage fan!), fresh bacon (calm down, it was turkey bacon :)), and oh the blueberry jelly juice was so good too.

Breakfast à la Azis

Fourteen of January and wow guys, its twenty and sixteen!! Who feels that January becomes a month when “What’s Next, What’s Next?” is flying on mind? Is it only me? Or you too?

Before I share photographs of my breakfast yesterday morning, I wanna make some confessions. First thing first, “What’s Next, What Next?” feeling is really bothering me lately when I keep thinking what my next journey is. It’s quite different from last year when I was very relaxed with what would I face a year ahead. This year, I really, really have to think what is my next step in life.

Second confession ; today is the end of my day off! I should have 10 days off but unfortunately, I just had two days. The rest was ‘half-day’ and still working from some upcoming projects. How do you feel when most of your colleague is resting and you’re still working? :(. Third, I feel like I’m not having a good start managing my allowance (hellooo! this is new year!). Trying to be discipline on spending my money but couldn’t help myself to not to pick a new bowl and two white saucers. Because sometimes, buying things like that for ‘food-scene’ purpose makes me happy (in fact, when you should be resting but still working, gah!).

Fourth, I cooked chinese noodles (been craving it for a while), fried chicken in thick honey and sweet soya sauce, and chocoffee (chocolate and coffee :|) pudding in one hour the day before yesterday just right after I came back home by 4.30 pm. I always love to cook something simple yet tasty. Quite brainless but versatile enough.

Okay, time to share a short story behind this breakfast scene. When I woke up yesterday morning, I had an idea to play around with my new bowl which I’m sure the color will be beautiful in picture. But then I found that hammatan season is still here and morning sun wasn’t smile and said no hello. I thought I would enjoy my breakfast normally without busy taking picture and I should forget photographing my breakfast-scene. I went straight to brew a cup of coffee and accidentally found a soft natural light from the window in my living room. I dropped my cup on a purple ‘flatlay’ and surprised that the color of the background was interesting enough. So, I boiled chinese noodles for a sec and mixed with the remaining sauce I cooked the day before yesterday (for sure, I kept it inside fridge!). Then, time to play on a new bowl! I added chicken on top and sprinkled with fried onion I brought from Indonesia. I was surprised that the light was fantastic, it wasn’t harsh yet gave a perfect lighting on the food. And believe it or not, I didn’t need complicated editing for this shot cause all the pictures are clear. A little touch-up in Lightroom and Photoshop for text (some of these are straight from camera)! Hm, I still dreaming someday I’ll have a mini studio complete with light box, so that every time I have an idea for food photography, I just take my camera, set the lighting and shoot!

Hello, it’s been a while for a food lodge on this blog (click on the image to zoom)!
