About Me

“Chin Chai” means undemanding and “Jiak” means to eat in Hokkien, which is one of a dialects of Singapore. “Chin Chai Jiak” basically means that a person is not picky on the kind of food he had.

I’m not a writer and i don’t possess a colorful writing skill. I am an ordinary Singaporean who loves to eat, and photography is my passion and i particularly love food photography. All photos are taken by me unless stated otherwise.

I worked as freelance photographer during my free time and i’d also written a post on food photography tips over the years of shooting food.

This blog was started in August 2013 mainly as an interest, to share useful information on food that i had, locally or at overseas.

I am not a know-it-all foodie but just someone who likes to take photo of what i had so don’t ask me questions like “where can i find the best carrot cake in Singapore”. Frankly, i didn’t try all the carrot cakes in Singapore so I won’t be able to tell you.

Google is still my best friend when it comes to research for food.

For any feedback or comment, you may contact me at chinchaijiak@gmail.com


I am an independent blogger and i pay for my own food most of the time.

Even if it’s a invited food tasting, i am not receiving any monetary benefit to do up any of the blog posts. I accept these invites so that i can gather more writing material for my blog.

If it’s an invited food tasting, it will be mentioned at the introduction section. 

Food tasting /  media invite

I accept food tasting and media invite, however to do up a blog post or not is entirely up to me.

Note that i will review on the food purely on my honest personal preference.

I do not only write about the good things.

  1. I’m a big fan of bread and your bread post on Baker Talent is detailed! I prefer the golden sands bun from there compared to barcook’s too! But barcook’s cheese buns are better in terms of texture! Your photos and reviews are great! Thank you for sharing! 🙂
