Welcome to The Hungry Girl.
I started this blog in March 2009 to chronicle my many food adventures around Sydney (and hopefully, beyond!).
The Basics ~
I was born and raised in the inner west of Sydney.
I have a Chinese/Cambodian background.
I have completed a commerce degree and am currently working in the food industry.
I will travel for food.
The first inspiration for my blog would have to be my good friend K, who grew up in Singapore and is obsessed with all things new, shiny and techy. When we first met, I noticed her weird tendency to take photos of all of our food. At first I was rather boggled by this strange behaviour, but then I started to get in on the act and loved it!
I have also been inspired by some awesome food blogs, which I had been lurking around for quite some time. I never intended to make friends or even meet people through this blog, but I have had the pleasure of meeting and becoming friends with some lovely bloggers :)
How often do I dine out and with who? ~
You may think that I must dine out every day of the week and am some sort of giant. But I'm not really. On average, I dine out maybe once during the week and twice over the weekend (Friday is included in my weekend. hehe).
I have lovely dining companions who put up with my camera and photo-taking! And no, sorry. You cannot just 'come with me'. I have to actually know you. I do not do any sort of food review tour thing, I have a real job!
1. I don't really know how to cook. But I'm learning. Apparently I will never be a good wife, until I have mastered the art of cooking! Oh dear.
2. I am a massive teeny bopper. Yes, I really do like Zac Efron, I'm not going to lie. But, have you not seen the awesomeness/overly lame/cringe fest that is HSM 1, 2 AND 3? (How good was 3?) My friends still love me for it, I think.
A little bit more.... ~
Aside from my love of food (Japanese especially), I love shopping and travelling. My dream would be to travel to every country to shop and eat. That's all really.
I am not a professional writer, critic or photographer. Just an average person, like yourself, giving their opinion of their experience. My experience may be different to yours, so obviously you will need to make up your own mind.
If there's anything else you'd like to know about me, please leave a comment!
Thanks for stopping by!
