The decision to sign up for the food photography by Dr. Leslie Tay (of the ieatishootipost fame) was a last-minute one. A few weeks earlier, Leslie has emailed me earlier to inform me of his newly released ieathawker app on Singapore’s street food. We became acquainted after a phone interview for a food bloggers-turned-authors piece a couple of months ago. I asked if there were any makan (eating) sessions that I could join during my short trip back to Singapore. My dates home coincided with a Canon food photography course he was conducting at The Disgruntled Chef (TDC), which was a few doors away from a friend’s wedding at Jim Thompson I was attending that very evening, so I readily agreed to join the workshop.
