Update!

Less than 20 days left! I am extremely excited and super busy. I am making a shopping list of what I want to buy. On the top of that list is the Bakery Series Vinylmation series. I really really hope I can get the entire series and they are still available. If anyone has seen them recently, are they still there?

On the weekend we went to Toronto and ate at my dad's favorite Chinese restaurant. I got to practice taking more pics. One thing I have learned is taking more pics is better. Here are some highlights:

Fried Chicken & Prawn Crackers


Assorted Meats Platter


Ginger Lobster

That's the most beautiful Chinese food I've ever seen, and once again your pictures are gorgeous.

On a side note, it's so exciting that your trip is less than 3 weeks away! Hopefully they still have the Vinylmation series you're looking for.

Thanks, DDW. *blush* As for the Vinylmations, there were the most foodie souvenirs that I could find. I just hope they are still available.

Here is more food from the lunch!

Battered Oyster Mushrooms with Seasoned Beef


Scallops and Battered Prawns over Celery and Snowpeas


I keep telling myself I need to practice more! XD

Even though I ate a little while ago, those newest pictures now have me hungry again. Those mushrooms are so cool-looking!

Hi Rosey! Your latest food pics are wonderful, the Chinese food looks amazing! Which restaurant in Toronto is this? We may have to pay them a visit.

Hooray for being two weeks away from your trip!! I share your excitement as we're 18 days away! If you're going to downtown Disney while you're at the world, be sure to check out Mickey's Pantry for foodie-type souvenirs. It's full of cool kitchen gadgets, cookware, dishes, etc. I always go a little nuts there, LOL. I'm crossing my fingers for you and hope you can find the Bakery Vinylmation series you're looking for!

I was secretly hoping it was battered fish when I ate it, DDW. The portions of the ten course meal was huge and there were eight of us.

Thank you so much, Brenda. I don't think I will have more practice. I have less than two weeks left and it will get pretty busy. I hope to do a little food photography post after I finally finish my dining reviews if people are interested.

I use a Nikon D5100. I used to have a Canon Rebel XT but the autofocus broke on me. I do like this camera more than my last. I have one set of lens that I bought aside from the default and it is the 50mm. I absolutely love it. I hope to save up and buy the macro and fish lens eventually.

Hi Carol! The restaurant is Sam Woo BBQ. I went to the Scarborough location. They have one in Mississauga as well. There are quite a few in California and one in Las Vegas for anyone interested stateside.

I can't wait to get into Mickey's pantry and buy a few things. I googled the pics and it will be the perfect place to pick up a few presents for mom, sis, friends, and myself. I am bringing one empty suitcase for everything I am hoping to buy, lol.

These are homemade Cheddar Spring Rolls.

I am down to a week left and I am so excited. I am still trying to get a 3pm reservation at Le Cellier but I have had no luck so far. This week will be tight and I will try and cram in as much food porn photography taking as possible.

I think my Mt. Everest in food photography is buffet food. It is so hard to make it look good. I hope I can climb and conquer when I eat at 1900 Park Fare and Cape May in a week!

Thank you so much, Barb. That is such an incredible compliment. I will try and take the best pics I can soon. I can't wait to photograph the sushi at California Grill.
I am starting my food journal tonight and get it ready for the trip.

Agreed with everyone. Not only can you cook amazing food, but you make all these real world dishes completely worth drooling over!

I can't wait to see what you can do with Disney food.
