Get Rich Quick

To get rich quick, just feed off of America’s fat… Any savvy business-orientated person can quickly cash in on the fast-food-obsessed nation we live in. Get yourself a fleet of these babies…   Yep. This is a fleet of KFC motorcycles in India used to quickly bring fried chicken to the hungry masses. Besides this […]

Corn Cornfusion

I was running through a mall in India a few weeks ago and came across this craziness…A stand selling ‘Steamed American Corn’. Last time I checked, my passport has me identified as an American, yet I have never heard of ‘American’ corn before. I have seen plenty of stalls selling popcorn and I have enjoyed […]

Japan: Land of Food Perfection

Japan makes me jealous! After working for several days there I quickly became spoiled with by the pristine perfection of every bite I ate. The quality, the presentation and the attention to every miniscule detail was ridiculously amazing.  After returning back home to the FedUp HQ in good-ole-America, I longed for the tasty treats I […]

Be a Macgyver

The situation: It’s zero-three-hours since our plane was supposed to depart. We are now officially stuck in transport-limbo. We were all herded off the plane and  imprisoned  in the Paris airport lounge.  We are all anxiously waiting for our flight to be ‘green-lighted.’ My fellow would-be-passengers are getting combative, as the clock slowly passes lunch […]

It’s OK to resort to room service

I was tired, cranky, and hungry. I was traveling for business, and after a busy day all I wanted to do was head to my hotel room at the Hilton in downtown Atlanta.

Mushy Dreams

I have been skiing all day long and was ready for a quick bite. I opened up my ‘snack sack‘ to see what I had stashed away. I discovered a ‘cookie-dough’ flavored protein bar that looked mighty tasty and I suddenly got very excited for the decadently described treat …. But then after unwrapping the […]

Upgrade Your Food

Everyone loves getting upgraded on long flights…but no matter if you are in first or economy, the food usually sucks. I have learned to always be prepared and I have manged to take boring meals and turn them into something tasty… A standard long-haul flight to Europe or Asia usually involves some sort of breakfast […]

Quality Vs. Quantity

I am fed up with people telling me that it is all about ‘quality’…so many people think that a meal will always be better if only the best ingredients are used. I agree overpriced, ‘quality’ ingredients and meals are awesome (except when truffles are involved)…but often with an elaborate-ingredient-based meal where quality is the first priority, your opportunity to savor […]

Burned Out

It really sucks getting burned when all you wanted was a cold drink… I am working in Hong Kong this week and had to spend the day in mainland China. I am tired from jet lag, I am overheated from a lack of sufficient AC, and I am dehydrated from no H2O all day. Our […]
