Mobile Photography Tips on Taking the Best Food Shot

My smartphone is my best friend. Whenever I’m out with family/friends or attending foodie meet ups, I only use my smartphone to take pictures. Why wouldn’t I? They are way lighter than digital cameras especially those bulky DSLRs. Most importantly, smartphones ARE capable of taking amazing photos. Don’t believe me? Check my Instagram account.

Wang Fu Chinese Café’s Set Meals and Singaporean White Coffee

On February 16th, my family and I passed by Ayala Malls Vertis North to check their Chinese New Year activities. There was a bazaar, Chinese Calligraphy and tarot card readings. They also offered mall-goers a chance to mingle with pets from Philippine Animal Welfare Society. Besides these, there was a mall wide Dragon & Lion Dance which truthfully is the main reason I wanted to stop by. I just love watching this traditional dance. Good thing we were there early because we were able to catch the start of the Dragon & Lion Dance. Prior to this, I searched online for a Chinese restaurant located in Vertis North. So after capturing their performance, we headed towards the restaurant I found.
