Make your Instagram photos great again.
Unlike the coming summer season, there is definitely no season when it comes to food and delicacies – or eating. Given that there are so many foods you can eat on a single day, you might find yourself one time craving for something and on the same day, you’ll crave again for another.
However, on today’s trend, before you eat every single food, you might be going to take a photo of it and post it on your social media channels such as Instagram (most popular for food photos – and that’s why perhaps this was titled #Foodstagram), Twitter and Facebook. There’s nothing wrong with that – sharing the blessings you have obtained is a pretty great idea, and that is, to inspire others.
I don’t spend too much when it comes to food, and because of that, I usually crave for foods that are within the affordable range (since you know that I’m always on a budget), and are just limited to my not-so-friendly allowance every day.
So without further ado, I’ll introduce to you the delicacies that in my opinion, every single Pinoy have enjoyed and eaten, no matter where you are and no matter who did it.
First – is Kwek-kwek, or also known as Tokneneng. Whatever you call it, this orange-coated hard-boiled egg is actually one of my favorites from the “street foods” category. Unless you are a person who hates street foods (maarte – you know), you’ll be not ashamed of eating, and of course, sharing a photo of it.
Dip it in a mix of vinegar, onions and spices, and you’ll definitely taste the feeling we’re tasting – from a span of Php3 to Php10 (depending on the size of your choice) because it may come with quail or chicken eggs, too.
Other than that, when I moved to Manila from Bulacan in order to pursue studies at PUP, I missed some foods that I can’t find on the metro – the ones being sold every morning by roaming vendors, and what do I mean by that is puto and kutsinta, a known Pinoy breakfast combo.
Topped with a brownish sugar-sweet spread and grated ‘niyog’, this combo is absolutely the best way to spice up your energy for the day, just don’t forget to drink something that will beat the energy gap. 😀
You can see them also in feasts being served together – presented in a way that your photographic desire surely can’t resist (see pictures below). Of course, other than eating it, your only job is to take a good photo of it and share with the caption:
“Puto’t Kutsinta………. (add your own caption)”
But purely, my all-time favorite Pinoy delicacy is Kutsinta. I don’t know how to describe it but the jelly-tastic feeling, adding the super-sweet brownish coating (I don’t know what do you call it) and the niyog – makes it my favorite though my logic doesn’t make any sense at all.
So to justify, here are some of the best photos of my favorite, which I think, are Instagram (or should I say Foodstagram?) worthy.
I think every food / delicacy that was served on a banana leaf is surely good. I don’t know if there’s a magic within that leaf or it’s just plain serving aesthetics. And of course, the presentation (looking at the photo above) is really great – complementing the green and brown with a spice of neutrality at the white side due to the ‘grated niyog’. Now, if you want to share great photos of your food on Instagram, make sure you can get a good presentation of it, to make it more appealing, and appetizing.
Speaking of great photos, Oppo F1S can make your Instagram photos great again. With its 16MP selfie-expert front camera and 13MP rear camera with some great features, there will be no doubt, why this phone is a contender for the best smartphone food photography. Ideally known for its camera-focused features such as filters, Beautify 4.0 and good sensor size (1/3.06), the F1s from Oppo will surely give you the confidence to make your social media feed – whatever it is, a worthy place for photos that were taken with this smartphone.
> Because you don’t need a DSLR camera or a high-end snapper to get great photos of your food, right?
Adding the fact that it packs 3GB RAM, an octa-core processor, and a battery capacity of 3,075mAh out-of-the-box, which is apparently a must, for photographers and – everyone alike, given the power requirements of multi-tasking in just a hand-held pocket-sized device. This smartphone apparently can beat any other on its price range, in my honest opinion.
In addition to those wonderful features, one can never miss an epic moment again with its 0.22s fingerprint scanner, so that you can go straight from your lock screen to your camera and snap. Not to mention also its 32GB of internal and thankfully, expandable storage so that you can store a huge amount of food photos – giving you the option to choose the best to post, and share it with people.
> Just think why there are so many F1s users out there right now.
