Pop Around Town : Let the phone camera eat first! (II)

【明報專訊】I began to talk about "foodporning" in my last column. The term refers to the highly popular practice of taking food photographs right at a meal and then immediately posting them onto social media sites. It may be transforming social relations between friends. I am not sure where the saying "let the camera eat first!" has originated. It is very likely Hong Kong phraseology. But a funny line like this seems to be embedding a great deal about friendship, aesthetic preferences and even competitiveness in our social life.
