Hello, Thank you for reading my humble blog.
The person behind Burp! is Miss moi, Josephine Chan, Malaysian-born-and-bred, currently living in Melbourne. It is not very difficult to spot someone who’s spent half her life in Malaysia because no matter where we go or stay, well, we just love to blend in with food and eat, and eat, and eat.
“Malaysians eat at least 6 times a day – most of them are mash up of breakfast, brunch, lunch, tea, dinner, supper … and towards a bit later, an unofficial meal that we like to call as mamak!”
There are a variety of cuisines in Malaysia ranging from hawker-street style food to Chinese, Malay, Indian and upcoming International cuisines. My beloved mom is a superb cook and she makes mainly Chinese Cantonese and Hakka dishes. Having lived in Malaysia, Melbourne and travelled well, I’m happy to be able to share (mostly) a variety of Asian and Modern Asian recipes with you.
“Oh, by the way, I have a
very verybad habitaddiction – I’m a self proclaimed recipe hoarder & cookbook addict.”
Burp! Appetit is created out of my passion for photography, food and family. Being able to share that with you is a great experience. It was never my intention to start a blog. As a self-taught home cook who only started cooking 3 years ago by reading cookbooks and watching youtube, I want to let you know that nothing is impossible as long as you believe in yourself and have passion for what you do.
I’d like to think that my writing and photography has also made you fall in love with food as much as I do. If you like what you read and see, please drop me a comment (in the comments section below) or just to say Hi (that’ll make me very happy 🙂 ). Alternatively, come stalk me via Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or Instagram (yes, I’m a social media whore too!).
Of course, all these will not be possible without the constant critic and positive support from my hubby, my lil’ one and all my readers. Yes and there’s also my beloved housemate, Bubbles, who not only keeps me company in the kitchen but who also loves to “vacuum” anything and everything that fell on the kitchen floor.
