No more speechless moments when it comes to food...

I'm not sure about you guys, but I have difficulties in describing food that taste soooooo good that I'll end up just making the expression mmmmmhhmmmmmm...or saying sedapppppp. T_T. sedey kan.

Sometimes, you feel like saying something good about the food you've just tasted but you don't have the right adjective to express it.You'll end up making the expression I normally do or you'll go saying delicious...very delicious or tasty...very tasty...
