Thank you all for your kind words and encouragement. The response has been phenomenal and overwhelming. We never thought this little project would reach out to so many people. x
Just arrived in Tokyo, having this mad craving for some "okonomiyaki"; so I called up my Taiwanese/American mate from highschool who just landed a job in Japan to come along.
Now okonomiyaki is a "western Japan food" (Tokyo is east), but the dish is widely popular. However what we were looking for was a bit different. We were looking for some "Hiroshima-style Okonomiyaki" which is a multi-layered pancake which is hard to make and not easy to find in Tokyo.
So I went to Shibuya to meet up with my friend, and... woah what the hell is going on!? Why is everyone holding a flag!? Japanese 4th of July!? ...well no, apparently there was a huge anti-China rally going on that day. The main issue is the territorial dispute on who owns the Senkaku Islands.
(I have no comments on this - All I can think about was okonomiyaki!)
Anyways, I brought my 7D along to take all the pancake fliping actions. I experimented on some new techniques in post, including the what I like to call "neo-letter boxe" lol.
Hope that everyone can enjoy!
Thanks for watching (^^)
▲ Okonomiyaki (お好み焼き) is a Japanese savoury pancake containing a variety of ingredients. The name is derived from the word okonomi, meaning "what you like" or "what you want", and yaki meaning "grill / cook / stir-fry". Okonomiyaki is mainly associated with Kansai or Hiroshima areas of Japan, but is widely available throughout the country. Toppings and batters tend to vary according to region. (For more please google)
△ "umai"（うまい） is an extremely versitile Japanese adjective for compliments with meanings close to "super / superb". You can compliment on a person's skill, taste of a food or someone's good fortune.
