About




Welcome to Wanderbites, where the mind wanders and the belly savors.
 
It is true what Alan Arkin says: "Your works is an outgrowth of who you are." It should be isn't it? Started out as a food adventurer, this blog has been a diary of what my tongue has tasted over the past years, and also an escapade for my thoughts, prose and poetry. In simpler words, I eat, daydream, and write it here. =p

Here you'll find reviews of food place from restaurant to street hawkers. I'm saving you a trip from unpleasant ones, and giving you a heads up on the awesome ones. They are mostly in Jakarta and also any other places I travel to. You can start with Bali, Bandung, Surabaya, Shanghai, Singapore, and Brunei if you want to. With that in mind, expect travel stories and photos as well.

My encounter with Artoo two years ago has pretty much shaped this blog the way it is now. No, not that bleeping droid Artoo. It's Artoo, my very first DSLR camera. Since then, it's been more eye pleasing, thus the large photo size.

It has been quite a wonderful journey. From working together with celebrity chefs, to photo assignments abroad, and as it is with all works of passion, it has its rise and falls, and I'll take them both. Thank you.

  4. I admire the images on your blog, amazing sharpness and brightness! Allow me to learn, did you use flashes? Of which aperture your lenses are? Thank you.

    1. Hi Tedjo, thank you for your kind appreciation. I rarely use flashes. Mostly depending on my 50mm f/1.4 which allows me to work better even in low light condition. =)

  7. Hi Irina! Nice meeting you.

    Thank you for the kind words. Semua fotonya diambil dengan Canon 7D + 50mm. Gua baru mampir tumblr lo, keren gilak! foto makanan yg diambil pake kamera film manual bisa cakep gitu. You too, keep posting. Or might as well keep using your old cam, it could be your trademark. =D

  13. Hi Ruby, I love the pictures that you take. I'm using pocket camera and iphone to take food pictures. Figure the DSLR is a bit hassle for me. Maybe I'll use it in the future :) Will navigate through your website now. Are you based in Jakarta or US?

    1. Hi Eric, thank you. I'm a sucker for good photo. In fact if its not good enough, I might skip writing the post altogether. Haha. DSLR comes in priority because of that.

      I'm in Jakarta mostly. US are some of my travel stories =D

    1. Hi Zeek. I assume you are fellow Indonesians? Saw your photos on Tumblr. Man, they are amazing. You got the eye for art. You should check Koultoura, especially if you love coffee. They've got geeky level coffee. Thanks, its nice to know that the stories and pictures are relatable. A pleasure, my friend. =)
