Welcome to Wanderbites, our humble abode where you can find stories of food, travel, as well as culinary hits and misses.
Our journey began back in 2009 in Jakarta, when the word influencer was reserved for the likes of Bill Gates, and Instagram was still nonexistent. Many things may have changed since then, but let’s take a pause and go back to the basics.
Food is so much more than calories. The beautiful Padma Lakshmi once said, “The best thing you can do for someone is make them a beautiful plate of food. How else can you invade someone’s body without actually touching them?” Food affects emotion. Food can make someone feel happy or unhappy. Food is powerful.
Food is also an opportunity to create moments. Have you ever talked with your good friends over a cup of coffee? Had your first date at that new gelato place? Met your future in-laws at a Chinese food restaurant? Secured a business deal at that poshest place in the city?
For us, those are the appeal food. It’s not about having the title of being the best food blogger, but about influencing people’s live in a positive way and helping you. Say you’re broke and paycheck is still ten days away, or your client loves Japanese food yet you don’t know which place is good—we’ve got you covered on both situations. Not to mention we’ve had some pretty great times over food, and we want you to feel it too.
We are open to constructive criticism.
The mayor of positive thinking, Norman Vincent Peale, once said, “The trouble with most of us is that we would rather be ruined by praise than saved by criticism.” Praise makes you feel good, but critique makes you better. Yes, feel free to drop us a comment on what can be improved or what else you want to see on Wanderbites. We don’t bite! ?
