Can Bread Talk?
I know I promised yesterday that I'd post another photo of Mt. Tangkuban Parahu and the legend behind this name.
My appology for not keeping the promise. Things have been a little bit hectic at work this week and I have not really had much time for my blogging. Still I'm trying to post a picture a day so that this blog will still be a "daily photo" instead of a weekly photo or monthly photo. ^_^
About the title of this post and the photo:
Of course bread does not talk (except in some fiction works or some figure of speech). This is just the brand name of a bread chain shop/francise. I think it's originally from Singapore, but it's quite popular here and can be found in nealy every big mall in the city.
The place looks the same everywhere, but quite nice. I especially like the idea of the see-through bakery, where we can see how the bread is made and how the bakers work and create those different varieties of fresh and mouth watering bread and cakes. It smells nice too. Here's how my mind connects the brand name and the idea behind the design of the shop: The shopkeepers don't really need to talk to potential customers, let the bread do the talking. And it apparently does. At this shop the bread does all the talking - promoting itself through the enticing aroma it produces.
So does bread really talk? Not the way we do (verbally) apparently, but it does have its own language: Its aroma!
