These days, it seems like you can’t have food without documenting it first, but Charlie Kwok (top left) and Rachel Loh (below right) are far from your basic foodie Instagrammers. In fact, don’t call them that at all. The latter, an accounts manager, has chalked up nearly 50K followers on her account (@rachmloh) with her pretty, rustic images of everything from poached eggs to a home-cooked Japanese meal, alongside equally charming snapshots of her everyday life. More recently, she launched a video series called 5 Minutes With to showcase everyday folks, and uses her platform to raise awareness on various issues such as global warming. “Mindful content creation is so important; good photos alone just don’t cut it for me anymore,” she points out. Meanwhile, the 18-year-old Kwok’s Scandi-fused pictures of what she eats and cooks has earned her commissions from The Lo & Behold Group and Park Bench Deli, with her account (@chockywoky) mainly used to support friends and F&B concepts that she believes in, she says. If dining with these girls means that the camera must eat first, by all means.
