Hi there! Welcome to my humble blog, started in the early days of 2011 simply as my form of escapism to and indulgence in, my curiosity about food.
Why thebountifulplate? ‘Bountiful’ reminds me of what a life of abundance I can achieve if I put my mind to it. ‘Plate’ is a reflection of the importance of food in my life – how the world always seems like a better place after a plate of char koay teow (ask me what that is!), the sense of euphoria after a successful bake and the relationships cultivated around a boisterous eating session. I am always in search of good food, why not? If I have to eat to live, why not eat well, try to remind myself of the experience.. and tell the world about it so perhaps they could too?
Now, I like to think of myself as a generally socially responsible person, well, in fact a responsible person. Period. Where I choose to share my experience of a visit to a food joint/ restaurant/ eating establishment, I’d like to point out that it is MY experience, good or bad. You go on and try out any of these places for yourself, just like I did.
So, thank you, reader for stopping by – however you may have arrived. If you’d like to use any of the material published on this blog, share your interest in culinary adventures or just to say ‘hello’, get in touch at thebountifulplate [at] gmail [dot] com
Best wishes, thebountifulplate
