When I first started with the videos, I cooked food I wanted to eat during the weekend ๐Ÿ˜œas the channel went on, i started receiving requests on Facebook, emails and other platforms. It made me all confused with requests everywhere. Not to forget that it's tough to manage all the platforms at one time ๐Ÿ˜•But I want to work with you to ensure the best experience with the videos! The
If you didn't know, Nyonya Cooking started out of a Facebook photo album. When I still had a personal Facebook account (now deactivated), I took photos of the dishes I've made over the weekend. My colleagues would then ask me the very next Monday about the food and they were always curious about the taste! I'd then share the recipes with them. ๐Ÿ˜…One day, a colleague asked me if I actually have a purpose for sharing the photos. Well, I think it was weird to him that I was uploading photos of all my food online ๐Ÿ˜‚ (6 years ago, it wasn't that common...at least not in Germany) I was not able to answer him that time but today, I want my videos and work to inspire you in every way. In return, I hope you will join us at the Nyonya Community to share your photos on www.nyonyacooking.com to inspire others to cook because anybody can cook! I mean, look at me...someone who could only cook instant noodles back then and now I'm making my own laksa noodles in Germany. ๐Ÿ™ˆ I'm sure you can do it as well and maybe you'll be even better than me! Through the love of food, I believe we can learn from each other and make the world a more delicious place to live in because life is too short for bad food ๐Ÿ˜ I can't wait to see your recreations soon! Remember, the
[1/3] Iโ€™ve lived my whole live in Malaysia. Born in Malacca, lived in Selangor (a state in Malaysia) and always seen running around in Kuala Lumpur ;) KL City Centre was my playground. I spent so much time at the Petronas Twin Towers (I mean, the shopping mall) and also at the places surrounding KLCC. But just like many young Malaysians, I had the desire to explore further. To be honest, I did not have the most pleasant opinion of my beloved country that time. Despite the fantastic food, vibrant city and, family and friends, I wanted to fulfil my dreams to live abroad. It started with German classes, supported with lots of determination and finally, I secured a job in Germany. Have you ever left your home country? Would you ever leave your home country? .

[2/3] Without thinking much, I announced that I will be leaving the country excitedly. As I think back, it really did feel like the best thing to do at that point of time because it felt so right. Of course, I did not think about the cons when Iโ€™m living by myself. My parents were really worried because (confession time) I never did housework. I hardly stepped into the kitchen or should I say, I was always chased out of the kitchen. I guess, it is true. They say, there can only be ONE queen in A kitchen! Donโ€™t you agree? ;) I arrived Germany with 90kg of items. 3/4 of my wardrobe, a whole box of ingredients, medications and other stuff. Well, pots and pans were not included. Illustration was exaggerated! However, I have heard of people bringing their own vacuum cleaner or rice cooker when they moved to Germany. Hmmmโ€ฆ.

[3/3] Today, it will be 6 years and 3 days since Iโ€™ve left. I am happy to say that I managed to build my life here. I got everything I wanted, if not more. A career, a husband and I am now the QUEEN ๐Ÿ‘ธ๐Ÿป of my own kitchen. The girl who did not cook at all now produces cooking videos for all of you located around the world ๐ŸŒŽ So, if I can do it, you can too! You all make my journey in Germany so much more beautiful. Malaysia is always home and I hope to present my home to you and to the world. You can take a girl out of Malaysia but you can never take Malaysia out of a girl ๐Ÿ˜‰ What is your best memory of Malaysia? Mine would be the moments with my family in our little home ๐ŸŒปTag your friends who can relate to this.
