Welcome to ‘a food lover’s journey’!

Panda loves cookbooks

About the cook and her family

I am a PhD student, research analyst and a food blogger.

Most people call me Anh. But some may know me as “butterball” or “white_poplar”. I respond to all these names.

I love to cook and bake, take photos of my dishes and write about them. I sometimes write for a Vietnamese food and travel magazine, but only when time permits.

I was born and raised in Hanoi, Vietnam until my late high school years when I came to Melbourne for higher education. Having lived in Australia and mostly Melbourne for the past 10 years, I have grown to love the land of down under.

Returning back to Melbourne from Sydney at the beginning of 2010, I am now living in the northern side of Melbourne together with the Husband (aka Mr. Bee/mr.B) and my sister (aka the Moo).

Besides cooking and photography, I like reading, movies, Asian dramas and anything good and beautiful in life.

My favourite moment of daily life is to walk through the colorful laneways in Melbourne CBD with a cup of hot espresso in the morning. Perfect start for the day for me!

About the blog

The name ‘a food lover’s journey’ was decided on a whim and taken from my favourite food show at the time.

While I don’t feel the need to change the name of the blog, it has become a point of reflection in my life in general. I would like to keep it personal.

Advertising and sponsorship

I welcome offer for product review. If I have time and if the product is suitable, certainly I will do it. But I do keep the right to provide honest opinion about the products. Just contact me.

As for sponsorship, this blog is open for suitable advertisers. For rates and details, please email me.
