Hi there. I am Jun and thank you so much for visiting my site!
I love food photography although I need to learn more how to manipulate the images that I took. I grew up in North Sumatra, Indonesia and went to school in Adelaide, South Australia. Lived in Legaspi City, Bicol, the Philippines for a while and now happily settled back in North Sumatra. We live in a small house with cramped kitchen, with my parents, three children and my dear husband, who is the best recipe taster and ingredients shopper.
This blog is not only about food and recipes, but about telling the stories of the learning and making of food in our home. Most of the recipes are heavily influenced by my mother, grandmothers and aunties. We are from a big second and third generation Chinese living in Indonesia. I grew up eating mostly Chinese food influenced by Indonesian cooking and Indonesian food influenced by Chinese cooking. We also live close enough to the Malacca Straits to enjoy the best of Peranakan cuisine, which not many cook anymore in their households. The complexity and sheer amount of work have deterred many from learning. The fusion of Indonesian, Chinese and Peranakan are simply fascinating and it deserve a page (or a hundred) of its own.
