For common folks like Uncle8888 and especially when he slowly lost his taste and then completely lost his taste for many months after radiotherapy. He slowly regained his taste over the years but and never 100% as before! Tasting nice food is your gift that many of you may never appreciate it! Eat to live is about edible food. Live to eat for common folks is about taste and smell and it should be looking good as well. Why fine dining is so bloody expensive? It is more than just taste and smell. Right? Banana cake is sold everywhere? Why Banana at JB is so good and people are so willing to queue on hourly basis for the next batch of oven hot banana cakes. Many will proceed to the nearby coffee shops to smell and eat a slice or two while the banana cake is still hot! We always do that. Don't let the queuing effort goes into waste! When we kept the leftover of banana cake in the fridge for next day breakfast. It didn't taste and smell that good anymore. Same as freshly cooked meals! Live seafood, fresh seafood, and not so fresh or worse rotting seafood. Rotting seafood is still edible when they are deep fired or cooked it in curry or make it real spicy! Taste and smell will always make that difference! Live to eat or Eat to live! Eat is live is simple! When bad time hits us hard; we can survive by eat to live. Surely we can! In the mean time enjoy your taste and smell! YOLO!
