In 2007, I thought I had an original idea that no one has done before and that was to start an online writing column on food. Silly me, the idea of ”Food Blog” the blogger community referred as existed already long before.
Two years later I still contemplate on launching a food blog of my own. Now in a recession with a tight budget and with a desire to follow my male ancestral to become a chef and with all the spare time with random thoughts, I figure why not put the excess time into eating, cooking, and writing. Let the eating begin!
iLuvPotato was my very first online journal non-related to food domain in my high school days. Whether baked, boiled, fried, mashed, the versatile vegetable is the love of my life.
A Little Bit About Me:
Growing up, I did not have the privilege of watching Saturday morning cartoons. Instead at the age of 12 I helped out the front line at my dad’s restaurant fast food Chinese take-out in Hoboken, New Jersey. My family decided to sell the restaurant in 2004, boy, I miss those fried chicken wings. During my college years I returned into front line of work in the food industry as a Starbucks barista on Wall Street for two years making tasty soy chai lattes.
Currently, I reside in an apartment in Lower Manhattan, 5 minutes away from Chinatown with all the cheap eats you can possibly dine-in and experimenting in my closet size kitchen.
