I've been super busy today, and only writing this after midnight. Technically, I have missed one day of writing, but I am going to backdate my article so that on paper, I still published an article a day. This is not the first time, actually. Who cares, except me. Hehe
I've been watching a lot of YouTube videos on food in my city. It's weird how my friends would share these video links with me whenever they come across them that feature my local food. I find it strange that as a local, I do not need to explore them further because I eat them. What's closer to the truth, though, is that I avoid these places, because they have turned into tourist traps. They might not taste as good as what people say, plus they can be pretty pricey.
A friend came one day and after lunch, messaged me to say that his meal was awful. How come? I replied, "Who asked you to go there?" And he said, "Youtube." LOL Nonetheless, today, I'd like to share three videos that portray well the local food that many find more than palatable. If you are also a foodie, even if you have no plans to visit Malaysia any time soon, you would find these videos super inviting.
These three videos are from different channels. Even though they feature food in the same city, they did not overlap the places, so that's good. Moreover, their delivery styles are vastly different. I find Chu Bro, a Korean, seriously amusing, especially when he shouts, "delicious" in various languages.
While two channels are by foreigners, Ipohmaneat is a local guy, so he has a deeper knowledge of the "hidden places" that are not blasted on social media. You know, the stuff you read on social media is like copy-and-paste work. When one person mentions it, the others follow suit. I guess this is how things go viral, for good or bad.
The only issue I have with Ipohmaneat is that his channel is in Mandarin and I'm a banana.
What's annoying to me when it comes to food reviews on social media, also on YouTube, is that they get to eat for free sometimes, and that would, in my opinion, sway their comments on the review. As a social media influencer myself, I know how difficult it is to share the truth, especially when the food is not up to par.
For me, though, I have a prior agreement with my host that should the food fail my test, it wouldn't get promoted. I would offer them feedback privately, off the record. After they have made changes, I would give it another shot, and only then would I blast for them, if it was up to my expectations.
Anyway, I am retiring for the night shortly, so will leave you to watch these videos. Let me know which video you love best. I follow these channels and watch them occasionally, not religiously for now because I am still stuck at home and not able to travel. Boohoo!
