Her outlandish food and gangsta-style lingo have cemented Nicole Fung among Asia’s top food personalities. In 2012, having spent several years in the finance industry, she and partner Eugene Kan, founded That Food Cray !!!, a food, travel and lifestyle platform that has since gained 100,000 followers. Be warned: it will make you hungry. The Chinese Canadian, who now lives in Hong Kong, later launched MISSBISH, a fashion and lifestyle website that celebrates female empowerment. She let SUITCASE in on her favourite eats and her coveted secrets behind a successful Instagram snap.
That Food Cray !!! started as a passion project. When I first started writing, I honestly wasn’t expecting anyone to read it. I had just moved to Hong Kong from Canada and wanted to document my travels as well as everything I ate along the way. It was an outlet to express my love for food while sharing my adventures with friends and family. I actually started my Instgram account before my website. My following exploded when Instagram featured me as a suggested user.
My family is from Hong Kong so I’ve always felt a connection to the city. It was my second home; now it is home. Hong Kong is a very transient place and is extremely multi-cultural. There are people from all over the world which makes the food selection very diverse. You can find everything from classic French to halal Chinese food.
MISSBISH was inspired by the community that surrounds me. Since moving to Hong Kong, I’ve met a plethora of people in food, fashion, fitness, travel, media and more, most of which are women. My partners and I saw an opportunity to share these stories with our readers along with interesting articles that speak to our demographic. We wanted to create a platform focusing on content that’s original, intelligent and evergreen, celebrating the women of the world. Our goal was to build a strong foundation to be a constant source of inspiration and to create an inclusive, positive, global community.
I love Vice’s Munchies, Lucky Peach, and BOOOOOOOM.
All-black everything or ripped jeans and leather jacket.
I’ve never been to Africa and it’s definitely on my bucket list.
Ha. Those days are behind me…
I would recommend either the soft boiled egg or onsen egg recipes. Knowing how to properly cook eggs is eggs-tremely useful since you can use them for multiple recipes!
St John is amazing. The notion of British food being dated is still something the inexperienced traveller may lean on, but there’s so much more in the form of innovation and classic fare.
The key to food photography success are lighting and composition. Try to find the best light, this will save you a ton of time editing. Always keep the rule of thirds in mind – “an image is most pleasing when its subjects of regions are composed along imaginary lines that divide the image into thirds – both vertically and horizontally.” Post editing is important as well, but try not to overdo it with unnecessary filters.
