I had a fashion photoshoot inside H Mart

The Bibliotheca theme of the month is food! Bibliotheca is a J-fashion blog circle by Bay Area Kei. It’s been quite awhile since I last participated in the monthly theme. I couldn’t pass up the food theme though since, y’know, I’m a foodie.

Grocery shopping is one of my favorite hobbies. As a second generation Asian American, I spent countless hours inside the grocery store as a child. As an adult, I find perusing the grocery store incredibly relaxing and exciting since there’s always new products to discover. The grocery store is a haven for feeding myself, burning time, or even just hanging out.

Gotta slap those rice bags when you walk by.

Stan H Mart

One of my favorite grocery stores is H Mart! H Mart always has my back with its fresh produce, delicious meats, large variety of snacks, so I wanted to pay tribute to my love of food with a silly little glamour photoshoot. I chose my favorite aisles for the background. #1 is the produce aisle! Next in line are the instant noodle and beverages aisles. A lot of times I do end up wearing J-fashion to this location, so this concept does have some authenticity to it.

This photo set was taken back in 2019 and I realized I never actually posted the whole set here, woops. I asked my buddy Aria to take these pics since we were already together for a food blogger event and H Mart was right next door. This day was also the 7 Leaves Cafe grand opening in Houston’s Chinatown.

  1. I’m also a Hmart Stan!! <3 I used to work next to a Hmart in downtown Toronto. I love their ready to serve meals like kimchi fried rice, bento and onigiri. It’s a blessing for the college students because it’s right across from the student learning centre! I love the photo of you squatting next to the rice bags btw!
